    This is a Chinese style recipe, I think specifically Szechuan style. You can vary it a bit -- maybe use chicken instead of tofu, or add some diced celery, bamboo shoots, or blanched broccoli with the other vegetables. Serve with rice.

    I was served this at a party last night. It doesn't taste as intense as it is. It's lightly sweet.

    Spicy and savory toppings on fresh-crusted pizzas. This sounds like a lot of steps, but it's really not that complicated. Also, you can prepare the crusts and toppings earlier in the day and then assemble the pizzas when you need them. These are fairly small thin-crust pizzas, so they are probably best as an appetizer or as one part of a meal that includes a few other dishes. Submitted for the Ready Set Cook Contest #7, June 2005.

    A salad featuring the flavors of Mediterranean France, with enough vitamins and protein to give you energy for windsurfing or dancing, but minimal fat to keep you looking sleek on the beach. Submitted for Ready Set Cook Contest, Summer 2005.

    Recipe #131958

    A light, sparkling cocktail that is a bit sweet but very grown-up. A way to use creme de cassis other than making kir. Nice on hot summer nights with light French foods. You can adjust the amounts of all ingredients to suit your personal taste.

    Iced green tea is great in the summer -- it's cool, it's got that slight bitter edge, and it's full of healthy antioxidants. You can keep this in a pitcher in the refrigerator and drink it whenever you need something to help you cool down. I make it with decaffeinated green tea so I don't get all wired. I have also made it using "green tea with mint" and that was excellent chilled. This proportion assumes you are going to pour it over ice; you could probably water it down a bit if you are going to drink it without ice. I never sweeten my green tea, so I can't tell you how much honey or sweetener to use, but that's a matter of personal taste anyway. I got this idea from a box of Celestial Seasonings brand green tea.

    A spicy Western Indian lamb dish, from "Indian Regional Cooking," by Sumana Ray. I haven't tried it - I don't usually eat lamb - but I'm posting it because it sounds like the sort of thing my cardamom-loving sister might like. This seems like a lot of oil, so use your judgment. No number of servings was given; I guessed. It says to serve with rice.

    Not soup with dumplings in it, but dumplings with soup in them. This is a famous kind of steamed dumpling for dim sum. You bite a little hole in the dumpling, then carefully sip the scalding hot broth out of it, then dip the rest of the dumpling in a dip and eat. It's amazing how they get it inside-out like that. I have just learned, from a cookbook called "Dim Sum and Other Chinese Street Food" by Mai Leung, that the secret is to gel some broth with agar-agar and seal the solid broth inside the dumplings. When the dumplings are heated, the broth liquifies again, so you get dumplings full of soup. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I don't usually make my own dim sum, so I thought I'd go ahead and post it for those who do. She says you can only make these a few hours in advance, and if you do, you should refrigerate them before steaming.

    Recipe #126427

    "This delicious cold spiced beef was a re-creation of an old memory that haunted my family periodically" after the restaurant where they had eaten it closed, writes Mai Leung in her book "Dim Sum and Other Chinese Street Food." I haven't tried this but am posting it because I know other members, or perhaps other people surfing the Web, are interested in Muslim style Chinese recipes. Many Chinese people use pork to flavor dishes, by Muslims cannot eat pork for religious reasons, so Chinese Muslim food focuses on beef and lamb. She suggests serving with Chinese egg noodles that have been cooked, cooled, and tossed lightly with oil to prevent sticking. These are supposed to be appetizer servings.

    These are like Mexican edamame. I didn't know what the fresh chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) were when I saw them in the store. They come in little bright green, slightly hairy pods. Finally a sign appeared - "garbanzo." I peeked inside a broken pod, and, sure enough, recognized the familiar shape. Then I had to figure out ways to eat them. I learned about this typical Mexican snack. You can eat them out of the pods, or shell a cupful and add them to salads. If you don't have a skillet, you can also steam or boil them in a saucepan. You may be able to find the fresh chickpeas in stores that carry a lot of Mexican, Middle Eastern, Indian, or Pakistani foods.

    This is a salad in the style of Provence (Southern France, on the Mediterranean). Aioli is a garlic mayonnaise popular in that region, often served with vegetables and fish. Homemade mayonnaise includes raw egg yolk, which brings a small risk of salmonella contamination. You can now get pasteurized eggs in stores, or if you are very concerned, you can add the garlic, basil, lemon juice, and seasonings to commercial mayonnaise, though it won't be exactly the same.

    Recipe #116360

    This is a classic French filling for a meal or snack crepe. I don't like fried eggs, but I like the egg in this. The trick is to get the egg perfectly cooked so that it is cooked through, but still soft and rich. Of course, you can also fill crepes with just ham and cheese, or cheese and vegetables with egg. Cooking time listed here does not include cooking the crepes.

    Recipe #115539

    A licuado is a Latin American smoothie. Actually, I suspect that a smoothie is a North-of-Mexico licuado. This is refreshing on a hot day. It is also good with pineapple instead of mango.

    Recipe #113621

    I read that a millet porridge with sweet potatoes (and sometimes chestnuts) was a traditional dish in Northern China, and pulled together the proportions, method, and seasonings from a variety of sources. Have for breakfast or as a side dish. Congee is by definition mushy and bland, so be sure you are prepared for that if you make this. Everything in this is very good for you. I think you could use apples or pears instead of sweet potatoes.

    Not too sweet. From the 1964 edition of Joy of Cooking, which describes them as "a sophisticatedly flavored soft tea cookie with an oil base," a description I found quite accurate (to my surprise - I'd never thought of anything involving carrots as particularly sophisticated). I used whole wheat pastry flour and canola oil. I did not add any fruit, and I added ginger to half the batch -- I liked them slightly better with it, but they were good without it too. I think these would also be good with nuts added, and if you do want them sweeter, you could make a glaze with confectioner's sugar, a little orange juice, and possibly a bit of butter or cream cheese. I like them as is. Cooking time includes cooking the carrots and zesting the oranges.

    Recipe #113030

    Not cheesecakes, but small cream cheese-flavored cakes. This is another recipe from Harumi Kurihara, reputedly sort of the Japanese parallel to Martha Stewart or Delia Smith. The cookbook was translated from Japanese to English in England, so all the recipes are British-style; I have tried to give some American approximations. Steaming is a common technique in Japanese cooking, and Ms. Kurihara has mastered the art of steaming in the microwave, offering specific times at specific wattages that actually work. I had to break out the instruction manual to my microwave to figure out the wattage. Steamed cake is a bit different in texture from baked and takes some getting used to for Americans, but this does taste much like cakes I have bought at Japanese and Korean style bakeries, and you can make them at home in the microwave. Ms. Kurihara offers two filling suggestions. I tried the peanut butter one, and found it to be exactly like fillings I have had at the aforementioned Japanese and Korean bakeries, but in those cases the cakes were plainer and drier; I thought it conflicted a bit with the cream cheese. I think these would be really good with dcwang wang's green tea mousse, recipe #103075, though I haven't tried that yet. It may be just my American tastes, but I love these cakes drizzled with chocolate syrup. They taste just like Boston Cream Pie. Easy microwave Boston Cream Pie.

    This is a traditional Lunar New Year dish in Korea. I have seen many different recipes - the only really standard ingredient seems to be the rice cakes -- but I really liked the savoriness of this one. The rice cakes in this soup are not the crispy American kind, but a firm Asian kind used in soups and other dishes. They are like Korean mochi, if that means anything to you. You could use beef broth instead of the anchovy broth if you prefer, although I don't think the anchovy broth really tastes fishy - it's more savory, in the way that Worcestershire sauce and Caesar salad dressing, both of which contain anchovy, are savory. Be careful eating the rice cake: it is so slippery it almost slides down your throat, but gooey enough that you really need to chew it. This is from, but I had to do a really specific search to find it, so I thought I'd post it to give it wider exposure, because it was good, and a new treat for me.

    A sophisticated international cocktail that glows neon-red and tastes like fruit punch.

    Satisfying fried rice with no eggs, no fish sauce, and no meat, but lots of Thai flavor from pepper, garlic, and a bit of curry paste. From Foolproof Thai Cooking, by Ken Hom. He says this is a typical dish of a Thai Buddhist festival in the autumn, which people celebrate by eating only vegetables for a week. This is spicy, and I say this as someone who eats spicy Thai and Mexican foods on a regular basis. My favorite part of this dish was the black pepper, but it did make it hot. If you do not like spicy, do not make this. If you like spicy but not very hot, you may want to reduce the amounts of black pepper and garlic quite a bit. Yes, it says three Tablespoons of garlic. Yes, that's about two small heads of garlic - not cloves, heads. And if you do like things very spicy (mmm), use the amounts directed and enjoy.

    This recipe is by Harumi Kurihara, who is reportedly sort of the Japanese parallel to Martha Stewart or Delia Smith. She says it is one of the most popular dishes she has ever developed. Though it is from a Japanese cook, it's not a traditionally Japanese dish, but more international. I wasn't sure what to make of it - The carrots are fairly sweet, and the dressing quite tangy, so the effect is sweet-tart in the way that coleslaw often is (it doesn't really taste like coleslaw; I'm just trying to explain an aspect of the flavor). I have never been a big fan of that flavor, but I know a lot of people love it, so I thought I'd post this. Her method of quickly steaming the carrots in the microwave is definitely good. Ms. Kurihara pictures this served with Japanese dishes, but I think it would be good served with American picnic barbecue foods like hamburgers and barbecued chicken! The cookbook was translated from Japanese to English in England, so the measurements are British-style. I have tried to give American measurement equivalents where I could; these are approximations. I bought the carrots pre-slivered in the salad section; that made it quite easy.
