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. Sooooo if you’re a sweet freak like me, all I can say about my recent recipe post pattern is: you’re welcome. And if you’re not? Now let’s get to this deep-dish cookie. Jenny from Picky Palate recently posted a recipe for a microwavable chocolate chip cookie made in a ramekin that looked so unbelievably delicious I had to make my own (slightly healthier) version. I cut out half of the sugar, subbed in whole wheat pastry flour, and used grain-sweetened chocolate chips (which have less sugar than semi-sweet chips). Now I’m under no delusion that even my version is healthy.

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. First, a good cut of beef always makes for delicious bulgogi. Secondly, the marinade: the marinade in this recipe is the best that I’ve yet developed. Thirdly, when we talk about the best cooking methods, grilling over charcoal will always be the best. I was invited to my friend’s BBQ party in the Catskills in upstate New York a while ago. Everybody loved my bulgogi! Also, the recipe for the spicy pork BBQ in this video will be posted soon! Ingredients 1 pound of beef tenderloin, sliced thinly into pieces ½ inch x 2 inches and ⅛ inch thick Marinade (for 1 pound of beef): Directions for Vegetarians: Use the same marinade above and replace beef with mushrooms.

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. Ingredients: 1 pound of cylinder shaped rice cake, bought or homemade. Directions: Add the water, dried anchovies, and dried kelp to a shallow pot or pan.Boil for 15 minutes over medium high heat without the lid. Remove from the heat and serve hot.

civil war mac n cheese Today, as I write this, marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of America’s Civil War, with the bombardment of Fort Sumter . I recently took my 13-year old nephew to visit our nation’s capitol, including visiting Robert E. Lee’s house at Arlington National Cemetery, and a day wandering the battlefield at Gettysburg. The National Military Park Museum at Gettysburg is not to be missed, by the way. Not only does it give you a clear and thorough understanding of the 3-day battle that took place there, but the photos and relics on display give us a fascinating glimpse into what life must have been like back then. And it wasn’t really that long ago. So, what did they eat in the 1860s? along with recipes for okra soup, indian pudding, gumbo and brown bread. According to the Civil War Recipes book, the following “maccaroni cheese” recipe first appeared in Godey’s Lady’s Book magazine in 1861 (circulation 150,000). How much milk?

Chocolate Chip Filled Melting Moments UPDATE: Don’t forget! You have until Noon (EST) on Friday, June 13 to enter the contest to win your very own copy of The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook. Simply follow this link and leave a comment. It couldn’t be easier. If I had my way, every cookbook published would have to include an image of each recipe housed between its covers. Now, if I were an omniscient being, something similar perhaps to the bizarre alien main character in Stephanie Meyer’s new novel The Host, I would totally conduct a study of people surrounding me whether or not they try recipes in cookbooks when they don’t have a corresponding image. Thankfully Elinor Klivans, the author of The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook, or perhaps her production team, had the good sense to include a heavenly reproduction of the Chocolate Chip Filled Melting Moment cookies. Chocolate Chip Filled Melting Moments Adapted from Elinor Klivans’s The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook published by Chronicle Books Make the cookies.

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. The key to making this dish work is using fresh, quality ingredients. To learn how to make crispy homemade Baked Pita Chips, click here.
