Pandan Chiffon Cake

< 1 minute read We discovered pandan cakes in a recent Universal Yums box: it’s green, a little fragrant, and puffy as air. We wanted more, so ordered some pandan powder and searched for a recipe. Found this: https://www.kingarthurbaking.com/recipes/pandan-chiffon-cake-recipe. I kinda winged it though: recipe said to use fresh pandan leaves, so I instead just soaked a lump of […]

Chop Suey Recipe

< 1 minute read I mostly followed this recipe: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/25136/chop-suey/ Except I added a can of water chestnuts and a can of baby corn. I bought some BBQ pork from Chinatown today so didn’t bother adding the pork, instead had it meatless and had the meat on the side. Had it two cups of rice. It was pretty popular.

Pumpkin Gnocchi

< 1 minute read Big hit this recipe: https://www.recipetineats.com/easy-pumpkin-gnocchi/ I usually double it, use cottage cheese instead of ricotta (because we just have it in hand more often), and use half mozzarella instead of Parmesan which makes it more creamy. Do it with a side of green salad (usually balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and some salt on lettuce) and […]

Argentinian Empanadas

< 1 minute read This week’s universal Yums box focused on South America, so I decided to try something South American for dinner. I don’t know a lot of South American food, except ceviche, chimichurri, and empanadas. So I tried the last one. I based it off this recipe: https://wanderingwagars.com/wp-json/mv-create/v1/creations/39/print The filling was a bit bland for me, so […]

Korean Lettuce Wraps (“Bulgogi”)

< 1 minute read This was recommended to me as a way to use up kimchi. It’s very similar to Korean tacos, but the flavor reminded me more of a Korean bbq. Here’s the recipe: https://www.cookingforkeeps.com/wprm_print/27241/ I adjusted a little: Replaced “gochujang” with Thai red chili paste (it sounds like the same thing) Doubled the recipe to feed a […]

Mike’s Zucchini Soup

Cream is what makes restaurant food better than yours. It has plenty of garlic. And the little bit of goat cheese gives it a fresh tang. No need […]
