Sumner, Washington is the Rhubarb Pie capital of the World with almost 30% of the United States supply of rhubarb grown in and around the city. Rhubarb is native to China, Mongolia and Siberia and the edible kind was introduced to Europe in 1608. Ben Franklin brought the edible Rhubarb to the US in 1772 but it did not appear in pies until the early 1800's.
This is a very easy recipe and one that I love to make. Bulgogi means fire meat in Korean and is traditionally cooked on a grill or over an open flame. Chicken doesn't stand up well to this kind of treatment so it is pan fried.
The Jewish holiday Purim is celebrated annually according to the Hebrew calendar on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar and one of the items served are hamantashen. Hamantashen are pastries made in the shape of triangles with their sides folded inward over a central filling.
Thius is a copycat version of McDonald's Ranch Snack Wrap (A tasty combination of crispy chicken breast filet, with two half slices of tomato, cucumber slices, spring greens, shredded lettuce and cheddar jack cheese, all drizzled with seasoned rice vinegar and buttermilk ranch sauce wrapped just for you).
This is a copycat of McDonald's Big Mac Sandwich (A double layer of sear-sizzled 100% pure beef mingled with special sauce on a sesame seed bun and topped with melty American cheese, crisp lettuce, minced onions and tangy pickles). If this recipe works for you, you might want to make a bigger batch of the sauce to keep on hand for MacAttacks.
This recipe is from a chef who operated the restaurant, Korean Temple Cuisine, in New York, New York. Bibimbap (mixed up rice) history is lost to time but some theories abound. One theory was when royal cooks attempted to assemble something beautiful under less-than-ideal conditions for a 13th-century king on the run from Mongolian invaders. Another theory is that it was a harvest time dish eaten from a communal bowl by farmers working out in the field.
This recipe is for an Afghani dish called Aushak, an uncooked vegetable filled dumpling, that has a meat based sauce poured over it. Most dumplings are either meat or cheese based so these are a little unusual. Tasty though!!
This recipe hails from Hokkaido, the northern most island of Japan where mushroom hunters in the fall gather wild mushrooms and make this dish to signal the start of winter. There is a mixture of cultivated Japanese mushrooms in the recipe, but you can add any kind you’d like, including fresh wild mushrooms from your neck of the woods. Can be made vegetarian with the removal of the pork chop slices.
This is a copycat recipe of Popeye's Popcorn Shrimp and Chicken (Tender, crispy shrimp and chicken seasoned in Louisiana herbs and spices then served up crispy). For spicy, double the cayenne pepper and for cajun, add the cajun seasoning.
