We love sweet heat, the combination of tropical fruit and chile peppers. If you’re not a big spicy fan, totally reduce or completely omit the jalapeno! If you don’t have a grill, no problem! Just use a big skillet over medium high for the same time! Hope you love it!Read More
Ching-He Huang teaches a beautiful salad in Ching’s Everyday Easy Chinese where she combines tomatoes with plums and pears, and grates salted plums over it and dots it with basil. Tomatoes and stone fruit?! Yeah. It’s amazing. I have played with so many variations on that. My salad’s quite different from Ching’s, but hugs to Ching for the inspiration! She has so many cool veg dishes. I can’t wait to make it again when the peaches on our tree are ripe. They’re little but sweet and a gorgeous vibrant orange. This salad is killer as a BBQ or grill side dish! Read More
Twenty-something years ago, when we were still newlyweds, I asked my husband if there were any favorite foods he had that I wasn’t making. He thought for a minute and said, “Yeah. Peanut soup. When I was in basic training, we had it once when we were out on leave, and it was one of the best things I’d ever eaten.” Huh. I’d never heard of peanut soup before.
It’s a West African dish, filled with all kinds of nutritious stuff. I had to make it. It was amazing! I kept it constantly in the rotation, tweaking it to my heart’s content, because it’s just as delicious as it is good for you. Perfect.Read More
