I can’t wait to share all the deliciousness I am working on! For most people, the holiday pigging out is finally over, but for me, it’s just starting because Chinese New Year is fast approaching. In case you haven’t found out, the Lunar Chinese New Year is around the corner!! This year the first day of Lunar New Year falls on Saturday, January 28 and it’s the year of Rooster!

Today’s meatless pescatarian Chinese daikon radish cake will be your perfect solution.

Let’s first take a step back to talk about Chinese New Year. How to Make Blood Sausages. I’m from New Jersey, and much of what I learned about how to interact with others I learned from my stepfather Frank. Frank’s main rule was, “always have favors you can collect on, and don’t be afraid to do other people favors.” I do something for you, you return the favor — scratching each other’s back is a way of life. It’s how I roll. So some years ago, when I drove down to Galt to collect a few hundred pounds of Touriga Nacional wine grapes from a Portuguese grower named Ron Silva, I wasn’t shocked when he told me not to worry about money. Morcella. I know how to make blood sausage, but until I developed this recipe I had limited success. I know. Pork blood will solidify and stay moist, while beef blood becomes crumbly and dry — one more reason why the pig is God’s Gift.

My blood sausage is bound with blood rather than a pure blood sausage. I woke up early on a Saturday, drove down to the Davis farmer’s market and picked up some pork blood, as well as a big slab of pork shoulder.

Struffoli and Mostaccioli My favorite Christmas desserts « Sharing My Italy...The Blog. Yesterday was December 21, the shortest day of the year. That means brighter days are ahead and Christmas is only 4 days away. Time to start My holiday desserts and to share two of My favorite Christmas recipes . You probably all know about the Panettone from Milano and the Pandoro from Verona, both delicious holiday cakes and today easily available in many gourmet grocery stores. But, how many of you know about two delicious specialties of the Neapolitan region, the Struffoli and the Mostaccioli? The Struffoli and the Mostaccioli are nowhere to be found in the States (or at least around my area) so I had no choice that to make My own.

The Struffoli are a true Neapolitan dolce (dessert). The Struffoli are little balls of dough fried and then coated in honey. The Mostaccioli, also called Mustaccioli are sort of large biscotti (cookies) shaped like a diamond and covered with a chocolate glaze or ganache. My Mostaccioli Ingredients 4 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup honey. Garden Vegetable Soup Recipe : Alton Brown. Omurice Recipe. If you're like me and secretly enjoy covering your scrambled eggs in ketchup, then you'll love omurice(オムライス). "Omu" is an abbreviation for "omuretsu" (omelette pronounced with a Japanese accent) and "rice" (pronounced raisu) refers to the sweet and savory chicken rice it's filled with. It's unclear where the dish originated, but in Japan omurice is considered yōshoku(western food) and it was probably created around the turn of the last century when western style cafes became popular.

In older preparations it's made exactly like an omelette in that the chicken rice was wrapped in a thin sheet of egg. However, in more recent years, most places ditch the thin papery egg for a luscious blanket of soft scrambled eggs on top. There are even some restaurants that specialize exclusively in omurice. The rice is seasoned mainly with ketchup, which makes it the perfect sweet and tangy contrast to the creamy egg on top. If ketchup with rice isn't your cup of tea, don't worry. Ingredients 260 grams. Oyakodon Recipe. Oyako donburi (親子丼), which literally means “parent child bowl” is a popular chicken and egg rice bowl in Japan. It’s a simple one bowl meal with flavorful chunks of chicken wrapped in a custardy blanket of eggs, all seasoned with a mild dashi broth that tickles down onto the steamy bed of rice below.

At yakitori (grilled chicken) restaurants, the chicken is often skewered and grilled first. This allows the excess fat to render out the chicken while infusing a great charcoal grilled flavor into the oyakodon. Most home preparations however have you pan fry the chicken. It’s important to leave the skin-on because it keeps the chicken moist and adds flavor, but I’m not a huge fan of the fatty rubbery texture of the skin that gets left.

That’s why I’ve developed a method to keep the chicken moistening benefits of the skin while making it all but disappear in the finished donburi. The trick is to put the chicken into a cold, dry pan, skin side down with a weight on top. Equipment you'll need: Water Bagels: King Arthur Flour.

I am a closeted obnoxious holiday person. I love that Christmas music starts playing on the radio the day after Halloween.

Homemade Bread Bowls. My husband and I were lounging around last night watching KU basketball and this conversation ensued: Me: Why are you bored? Him: I’m not bored. Why do you think that?
