  • Bitter Melon 4 Ways

    Bitter Melon is traditionally a Chinese vegetable, I seldom buy bitter melon because I don't really know how to handle it.  This week I came across these organic version from Magic Season Organic and it totally blow my mind.  It makes a huge difference with the taste of the vegetable when it is grown by whole hearted organic farmers.  Farm land from Qing Yuan, China with 18 years of experience, Alvin and his family grow some amazing delicious sweet vegetables.  With these nice veggies, I am determine to do some research to find some fun ways to handle this very Chinese ingredient with a western twist. 

  • Macadamia nut crusted Jeju Pork Chop

    I have been eating mostly chicken during the week and beef seems a bit heavy, why not pork chop for a nice dinner for two.  I know some of you are often intimidate by these thick pork chop and not sure what to do with it.  Here is my interpretation of a crusted pork chop that requires only one pan with minimal effort.  The buttery combo of Macadamia nut with these thick juicy pork chop along with a sweet pineapple chutney is just what I call a simple but impressive date night dinner.

  • Black Truffles Potato Chips Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española)

    My friend Wendy inspired me to make this Spanish omelette using potato chips. When I looked it up, it was so easy and it cuts off many steps from a traditional Tortilla Española recipe. I love super simple recipe and my kids will for sure enjoy the snack. Everyone has a bag of chips and some eggs laying around in the kitchen. Within 5 minutes you can create some last minute tapas for some impromptu guests. Serve it hot as a breakfast or cold for tapas. Add onions and peppers for extra flavours and you can call it your own creations. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
