Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of…

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings by A.L. Wiebe

I have been making this version of chicken wings for years now, and they are always a hit. This is just the basic marinade recipe, so depending on my mood, I spice them up some with extra Sriracha sauce, maybe some garlic. Do what makes you happy, but enjoy and have fun with it. *P.S. this will likely destroy your deep-fry oil, so…

MALAYSIAN FISH BALLS

MALAYSIAN FISH BALLS by Linda Tay Esposito

Bouncy meatballs! My good aunt, Shirley, shared this recipe with me - her secret ingredient is to add the egg (you must stir in in one directions, she says) to make the fish ball puff up during frying. The skin then collapses to a chewy bite, while the meat inside remains bouncy. Very few people really make this at home anymore…

German Meatballs and Sauerkraut

German Meatballs and Sauerkraut by Salad Foodie

I have never thought to serve meatballs on sauerkraut until I tasted this. Wow, forget about meatballs and spaghetti ~ this is delish! Perfect for anytime, and especially for Octoberfest.

Salmon Patties Like Mom’s - well sorta!

Salmon Patties Like Mom’s - well sorta! by Salad Foodie

My siblings and I just loved salmon patties in the “good old days.” Mom was in the workforce so the pantry was always stocked with canned salmon for this quick-to-fix meal. There were five of us, and the recipe using one can (then 16 ounces) made 5 patties. This version is close to Mom’s, but overtime I tweaked it to my liking. It’s…

Bulgarian Makitzi

Bulgarian Makitzi by Casey Angelova

The makitzi that my mother-in-law makes are from her hometown of Berkovitza. She describes the recipe as very basic, so you can add any filler to the dough. The recipe is very rough as she doesn't really measure anything exactly, so I will use my description and her recipe to make this as clear as possible.

Churros

Churros by Dominick Costa

Being in New York City, you are often surprised with crazy and random surprises. Everyday there is something, whether it be on the subway, walking down the street or in a restaurant. One of my favorite surprises is walking into a subway, and there will be someone selling Churros off of a sheet pan, two for $1! I’m always a sucker, and…

RICOTTA PANZAROTTI WITH MARINARA SAUCE

RICOTTA PANZAROTTI WITH MARINARA SAUCE by Linda Tay Esposito

I learned how to make the panzarotti from a chef with the same last name as I in Sorrento. Esposito is a very common name in the Naples area. She was tickled to see an Asian Esposito. Instead of trying to make your own puff pastry, I highly recommend using the frozen ones (Dafour is an excellent brand) to reduce the prep time by…
