Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One By Lauren Zembron, on July 20th, 2012 I know, I know… it seems as though I’ve been posting sweet recipe after sweet recipe (with a little something cheesy thrown in); but you see, after what seemed like a long time during which sweets were unappealing during my first trimester, (what can I say, pregnancy does some strange things to your body!), they’re apparently back with a vengeance on my appetite’s menu. Korean beef BBQ (Bulgogi) recipe Hi everybody! I’m eventually posting a video for bulgogi today. I posted a simple bulgogi recipe a few years ago but it was without a video. Delicious bulgogi depends on three things: a good cut of beef, a delicious marinade, and the method you use to cook it.
graham crackers Let’s say I was an alien, or new here or something — er, not entirely impossible, if you consider that I woke up yesterday with small feet fidgeting way further up my rib cage than I thought anatomically possible, leading me to wonder what I actually know about anatomy, leading to an inadvisable, rash amount of Google Image searching, leading to my eyes popping out of my head and whoa, I’ve digressed mightily — and I asked you to explain to me what is this “graham cracker” flavor that you speak of, could you do it? Because I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out what it was, and seeing the wide range of graham cracker — they’re something like digestive biscuits, for those of you across the pond — recipes out there, it’s not just me. There was the one I tried a couple years ago with rye flour, which I can assure you, was not the answer. Graham flour — a coarsely, exactingly ground whole wheat flour — would be the obvious answer, since they originate with one Rev.
Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies I love recipes that make me feel like I can get away with eating something sweet first thing in the morning. These banana bread cookies do the trick! Combining my own love for banana bread and the addition of chocolate chunks, these cookies are soft and cake like, much like the bread. They are perfect for enjoying with a cup of coffee in the morning, as a afternoon snack or the perfect dessert. They are a great excuse to eat a cookie any time of day.
Hot and spicy rice cake (Tteokbokki) recipe When I lived in Korea I learned the secret to making good tteokbokki from a famous place in a market. It was run by an old lady who could always be found stirring her tteokbokki. People were lined up to buy it. I saw she used dried anchovies in her stock, and that ingredient made a huge difference in the flavor. I once ran out of dried anchovies and made tteokbokki without it. homemade oreos Just before I left for the airport Monday morning, I stopped short and ran back inside, not because I forgot my power cord or business cards or anything normal like that, but to make myself a turkey sandwich. My flight left late, of course, and by the time I had time to unwrap my semi-smooshed last bit of home-cooked anything, I was so hungry, I was ready to ask the 18-month-old next to me to share one of his drooled-upon teething biscuits. Proust may have had his madeleine and my husband may have his pickled green tomatoes, but I had that turkey sandwich and in the one bite I allowed myself before the drink cart finally brought me something to wash it down with, I had found a happiness I didn’t know could exist at the front end of a much-dreaded three day business trip to a nine-acre enclosed glass pod.

Sephardic Salsa - Middle Eastern Tomato Garlic Salad Recipe This garlicky tomato salad comes from the Sephardic side of my husband’s family. Though it seems simple, it’s surprisingly flavorful thanks to a healthy dose of raw garlic and a zesty kick from jalapeno peppers. The spiciness in the jalapenos comes from a naturally occurring compound called capsaicin, which can be helpful with migraine relief, clearing up sinus congestion, and even reducing cholesterol and inflammation. When jalapenos are combined with tomatoes, heart-healthy olive oil and garlic, it makes for a powerfully healthy garnish. The key to making this dish work is using fresh, quality ingredients.
