Chinese Tea Eggs Eggs, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee soft-boiled with some kaya toast dipped into the runny yolk. And scrambled with some herbs and melty cheese.

Jennifer Segal: Broiled Salmon With Thai Sweet Chili Glaze - StumbleUpon This recipe is so simple and yet so elegant. Salmon fillets are quickly marinated in Thai sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and ginger and then broiled until caramelized on top. Begin by making the marinade.

My two favorite brands, which are both widely available, are Mae Ploy (pictured above) and Thai Kitchen.

It’s not fair.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match.
Strawberry & Chocolate Nachos I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: sometimes the best creations are the ones you don’t set out to create! This might be my new favorite thing. It’s the perfect easy, throw-together, family style dessert for summer. I did a local tv segment this week and made my Baked Cinnamon Chips and Fruit Salsa.
