CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman

This is fresh, healthy and delicious. People love it, even kids. You can make it ahead, so it's great for a summer party. Serve it with scoop-shaped tortilla chips, or have it on the side as a relish. I add extra cilantro, because there can never be too much cilantro!

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

The char siu bao is a dimsum staple. Sweet, juicy bits of Chinese bbq pork oozing out of the soft, sweet bun. The secret to creating that char siu bao taste is to use dried onions (McCormicks). Please look up the Basic Yeast Dough for Steamed Buns that accompanies this recipe. If you don't have steamer baskets, use a wok…

Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat.

Stuffed Mushrooms with Feta & Spinach

Stuffed Mushrooms with Feta & Spinach by david spottiswood

I adapted these mushrooms from a bon appetit recipe. They are delicious and always a crowd pleaser. They have a little zing from the crushed red pepper flakes. Great served as a passed hors d'oeuvre. We've taken these to other people's houses as an appetizer (just baking the last 10 minutes there) and they always get rave reviews.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Joanne Weir

This is one of those dishes that I have to order every single time I go to Chinatown and see them on the menu. I love the crunch of the lettuce, the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the oyster sauce. You can substitute turkey, pork or squab with equally delicious results.

This dip is irresistible. If you're looking for a light, healthy appetizer, this isn't it. But if you want something that's easy to make, tastes phenomenal, and is filling, you cannot beat this.

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip by Amos Miller

Still snowed in and entertaining the stranded! So I tried another Ellie Krieger recipe for a game day or appetizer dip option. Even though Ellie is a registered dietician and a very dedicated health nut, I still like her recipes! Anyway, I love roasted sweet peppers and, having 3 reds on hand, some crumbled feta cheese and a lemon I…

MINCED CHICKEN & LAP CHEUNG IN LETTUCE CUPS by Linda Tay Esposito

There are so many versions of Chicken in Lettuce Cups. This recipe features the classic trinity of chicken, lap cheung (Chinese wax sausages) and dried shrimp. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, get the Wycen lap cheung (Washington/Stockton or Clement/7th) . They make their sausages locally and offer extra lean 100%…

Fasnachts

Fasnachts by Glenn

Potato doughnuts traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday, the day before the start of Lent. Originally done to use up lard and others of the typical foods that were given up for Lent. Many in Lancaster County, PA consider it good luck to have a Fasnacht on Fasnacht Day. Traditionally the dough was cut into squares and fried but new…
