On the comfort scale I wanted something chicken noodle soup-like, only much easier. In the pantry I found couscous—both regular and Israeli. I choose the latter because I thought it’d give me a more comforting dish. I started with an onion—always. I cut off a little piece of the leftover holiday ham and diced it small. It wasn’t a first-course salad kind of night. Ten minutes later David walked in the door and immediately acknowledged that something smelled good.

I know there’s a difference between black and white sesame seeds – the black seeds are unhulled and aren’t quite as nutty as the white – but the reason I often sprinkle both on a dish has less to do with taste and more to do with the way the two look together.

Against certain backgrounds – cubes of white tofu, say, or a beige rice – it’s the black sesame seeds that help make a dish attractive and tempting. It’s what happens when two (or more) ingredients combine to produce a result that is more than their sum. Likewise, I know there’s a difference between a violin and a viola, though my credentials for explaining that are are far less apparent. What I do know, however, is that Mozart’s duo for the two instruments is a very special interplay between similar-but-different instruments, working off each other to great effect. Cumin seeds also feature in ras el hanout, one of the most complex of all spice mixtures, which is found in various forms in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. Santa Fe Pork and Black Bean Stew Recipe. Polenta Sausage Mozzarella Casserole Recipe. This recipe is for a "sweet" version of this casserole, meaning not spicy.

Cooking time: 20 minute(s) The weekend cook: Thomasina Miers’ recipes for Mexican-style lamb shoulder and homemade baked beans. Many people think that all Mexican food is spicy.

While this is true of some ceviches and salsas, many dried chillies are not hot at all, and are instead used to add layers of flavour with their rich, fruity tones. Their gentle, mellow heat is just the ticket on cold, January days. These different tastes – herbaceous, fruity, smoky, raisin-like, tobacco-like, even petrol-like – are subtle, deep and intoxicating, and once you start experimenting, it is hard to go back. Get dried chillies online or at larger supermarkets and buy in bulk: they last for months and are handy to have at your fingertips.

Some of them super weird (like really weird), some of them super creepy, some super nosy and most that are thankfully – normal. By far my most asked question is how I come up with new recipes. I think I get asked this everyday, and not just by readers. I swear my mom asks me this all the time and then continues to say she would NEVER want to do what I do. We could not be more different.

But she did unknowingly provided me with my secret weapon. Some people go to their mom or grandma’s for family recipes or ideas when their brains are not producing anything worth eating. But me? Obviously, she’s not really a great source of ideas for me. But you see, she has this friend. I call her Mrs. But anyway, Mrs. She knows how to make pretty much everything and she does it from scratch too.

This is so simple. And the flavors are insanely good. My favorite ingredient though is probably the tangerines, or cuties as we call them around here. Oh, and I really love the ginger too! Food - Recipes : Griddled pork chop with Thai red cabbage. Grilled stuffed peppers. A couple of weeks ago, my mom told me she was going on vacation and I kindly volunteered to house sit for her in Houston. My initial plan was to take advantage of her spacious air-conditioned kitchen that not only has counters but also a dishwasher and an in-sink disposal.

(These are all luxuries not found in my NYC apartment.) Not to mention she’s within driving distance of my two favorite grocery stores: Central Market and Fiesta. Cooking at my mom’s place in Houston was going to be a dream vacation! Everything was perfect until I tried to start cooking. I admit, eating my way through Texas is not bad work—even when you’re consuming up to eight meals a day. And this: and this: Towards the end of my stay, I had grown tired of restaurants and was itching to cook again or at least eat a home-cooked meal. If you ever receive an invitation for a meal from a cookbook writer you’d be a fool not to accept, especially if you like to eat. Yield: 6 small pepper halves. Tex-Mex meatballs in a chipotle-tomato sauce. Sundays in October might be my favorite days of the year. The leaves are starting to put on their annual show, the air is crisp, and there are so many choices on how you can spend your day.

For instance, on Sundays you can be lazy and sit on the couch all day reading the paper and a good book; or you can be busy, and visit flea markets and tag sales. You might choose to go to church in the morning and then come home for a Sunday roast; or you might save your eating for later that day when your football team plays a game. The latter is how many of my friends spend their Sundays this time of year, and it’s always fun coming up with some good game-day grub.

Things that always work for me are dips, chile con queso, and other easy foods that can be eaten with your hands. Of course, Texas chili, stews and soups are also good choices, but the nice thing about finger foods is you don’t have to mess with utensils. Enter this skillet of Tex-Mex meatballs swimming in a spicy chipotle tomato sauce.

This is a nifty wee dish to bash out on the BBQ. What? No it’s not raining, you’re imagining things. Okay it is, but this is Britain; stick a brolly over it. The flavours here aren’t for the faint-hearted anyway; there’s liver, which some people are against, and a large amount of onions. Oh and an extremely spicy dressing. In case you hadn’t noticed, I recently went to Istanbul. Liver and Onions, Turkish Style For the onions 2 onions, cut into half moons 2 tablespoons Turkish chilli paste 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses 1 tablespoon black urfa Turkish chilli flakes 2 teaspoons hot chilli flakes 1 tablespoon lemon juice Soak your onions in iced water for 30 minutes.

Food Stories. [Edit] I WON! Thanks so much to everyone who voted. ‘Frazzled’ aubergines? Okay, so I’m definitely not talking about aubergines cooked alongside the popular, bacon rasher-shaped potato snacks. I sense your relief. The idea of ‘burnt’ aubergines may be more familiar; popularised recently by chefs like Ottolenghi, it’s actually an age-old cooking technique.

Shiny purple fruits are placed over a naked flame, roasted or grilled until skins blacken and they collapse inward on themselves with a steamy sigh. The meatballs bobbing within are made with lamb, sweet nubs of date and warming cumin and chilli.

Lamb and Date Meatballs in Frazzled Aubergine Sauce For the sauce. Miso Beef with Soba Noodles & Crispy Kale Chips. Let’s not jump into pumpkins and butternuts just yet. Let’s ease into this autumn thing. September is about crossover dishes – a little bit summer with a hint or two of fall. This dish is the perfect balance of both seasons. And wrapped up on their own, the kale chips would make a great lunchtime snack or gift to a friend. As autumn loiters in the shadows of September, turning leaves to brown and day to night, my cooking becomes a touch more substantial. Working with Japanese flavors requires a different approach to cooking. Soba noodles are fast food in Japan but since they are made from buckwheat, they’re also a healthy option.

Crockpot Sweet and Sour Pomegranate Short Ribs with Creamy Polenta. Since I have started writing this blog I have tried a lot of new foods. Short ribs are one of those foods. Until recently, I had never made them, but I am pretty sure they are my new go to food. Basically, I have already made them twice in the last two weeks and no one has complained.

They are just that good. But you know what is not good? So not good that I honestly cannot stop thinking about how bad it was! Yesterday I think I made one of the worst tasting things I have ever made. Ugh. I know a lot of people have been really successful at making lentil meatballs, but I am not one of those people. Never again. I make a lot food, and yeah I have fails, but by fails that normally only means not blog worthy. Oh, and I promise to all the fourteen people who are spending three weeks with us over Christmas, I will stick to what I know and try hard not to mess up the tacos. Although, now that I think about it, I messed those up real bad one time too. But anyway, this meal (thankfully) is good. Slow Cooker Pig Cheek Ragu - North/South Food. Braised Pork Belly.

Braised Pork Belly Not too long ago, Christine from Christine’s Recipes sent me a copy of her cookbook – “Easy Recipes-A Selection of Simple Classics (簡易食譜──精選.易學.經典)”. I was really excited when I got her cookbook and couldn’t wait to flip through the book and check out all the recipes. I have been following Christine’s blog for quite a while now and I love all the recipes that she has been sharing. “Easy Recipes-A Selection of Simple Classics” contains a selection of over 60 classic and delicious recipes, including breakfast, tea, main, soup and dessert. Each recipe is very well-written in both Chinese and English. Besides, it is also accompanied with step-by-step instructions followed with pictures side by side. Personally, I love classic dishes and I think this book has all those yummy and most-loved classic dishes that everyone loves and it is a great keeper in my cookbook collections.

There are so many recipes that I wanted to try and couldn’t make up my mind. The weekend cook: Thomasina Miers’ recipes for roast partridge, prune and chestnut salad and apple charlotte. Game is the big treat of autumn: free-range and seriously delicious, it is full of protein and virtually fat-free; being somewhat out of fashion, it is also great value. Young birds are tender and have a delicately earthy taste (gone are the days when birds were hung for days on end to get faintly “high”) and, once cooked, you can make a stock with the bones, providing the base for other healthy, winning dishes. I love game in salads, as they allow the meat to shine without drowning it in a rich sauce. An apple charlotte feels like the perfect follow-up: use as many varieties of apples as you can find, variety being the spice of life. Roast partridge, prune, chestnut and bitter leaf salad You can use any game bird here.

Partridge has the gentlest flavour, so is a great introduction to game. Pheasant works, too, but you will only need a pair, while grouse and teal are a more extravagant treat.
