    I grew up eating a Filipino version of Congee called "Arroz Caldo". My grandmother would have lots of dark chicken meat in it and huge chunks of ginger that I would end up biting into (not fun when you're 7 years old). Since then my own kids have developed a love for the traditional Chinese-style congee (also called rice soup) they serve in restaurants, especially during cold Autumn and Winter days. Some people may be uneasy about using the 'century duck egg' (or 'thousand year old egg' is really just as egg that is preserved in salt, ash and lime) but don't judge it in it's unpeeled, chopped up state - added to the congee, it really adds a yummy complexity to this dish, even my 2yo daughter loves it. This recipe is for you if you want a warm, hearty, simple and economical meal. Enjoy! (note: I use leftover shredded chicken or pork but you can poach your own prior to making recipe, and use the ground white pepper - it really makes a difference!)

    This is a recipe I've used for several years now, taken from the Spice and Herb Bible. Amazing, is an understatement. The difficulty may lie in tracking down the ingredients, but it's worth all the effort. Enjoy! (note: preparation time does not include marinating time, i ground all the spices in a coffee mill/grinder)

    I once went to Cracker Barrel and my husband ordered their Wednesday special, buttered chicken. We'd never seen it on the menu before and it was the most flavorful, moist and buttery chicken we'd ever had. Since that time, we've visited Cracker Barrel in the hopes they'll be serving it again but it has never happened. So what's a wife to do? I tried duplicating it in my kitchen at home after researching recipes and I've come very close. FYI my kids (and my friends' kids) love this chicken dish (it's tasty, not too weird and super easy to make). Serve with rice, egg noodles, potatoes, corn, whatever you like! Change up the spices according to your tastes, perhaps thyme, sage, or rosemary in addition to the ones below... *note: I've never used boneless white meat for this recipe, but I don't see why it wouldn't be as tasty... perhaps not as moist, but i'm sure very yummy!*

    Ever since I saw a recent episode of Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate", I can't get roasted bone marrow out of my head. I ordered it at a restaurant in Toronto this Summer and I wasn't disappointed... now it was my chance to see if i could duplicate this sinfully good dish at home. Surprisingly, this is a very economical and easy recipe to prepare. Mmmmm.... bone marrow over toasted crostinis, with parsley salad and sea salt... definitely not for the faint-hearted. This is from the NYTimes.

    I noticed a few other Filipino Bistek recipes on here and while I haven't tried any of them, they weren't very close to the way I've always prepared it. I've made it the way my own mother made it since I was little (don't we all try to?). She used flank steak, a little on the pricier end, but so much more tender and moist than an eye of round and similar cuts. While some mothers sliced their meat on the thicker side, my mom would semi-freeze the flank steak and slice the meat across the grain, into roughly 3 inch pieces. She also never used more than a tiny squeeze of the calamansi/lemon so the acidity was never apparent in the finished dish, so feel free to omit it here (I usually do). When I think about those dinners as a kid, I remember a peppery, tender and onion-rich meal. To complete the dish, serve it over a bed of hot, steamy white rice. I hope you enjoy this simple, yet yummy memory from my childhood!

    I watched an episode of "Lydia's Italy" on PBS the other day and she made this deliciously comforting and simple soup using polenta. I made it and it will surely please your family (and your pocketbook). Enjoy!

    This spicy, ground pork and tofu recipe served over white rice really hits the spot for me after a long day. With just a few ingredients, and some quick prep you can have dinner on the table in about a half hour. This is cheaper and more satisfying than any takeout I've ordered the last 10 years. Unlike some recipes for ma-po tofu, I eliminate the need to marinate the pork, just braise it in the sauce mixture for 10 minutes and all the flavors permeate the tofu. You can also adjust the heat by reducing the amount of chili paste so that the kids will enjoy it too - and who doesn't want their kids to develop a love for something as healthy as tofu? I also slice the ginger into larger pieces so I can remove it later (I love the taste of ginger but not biting into it)Enjoy!!

    Recipe #362849

    A great way to use up all the veggies in your refridgerator and end up with a delicious and hearty meal. I make this with pantry standards like onions, carrots and garlic but anything you have handy (mushrooms, celery, etc) will just add more depth to this dish. So with just a little involved prep time you can walk away for 2 hours and feed your family something everyone will enjoy any time of the year! And this meal is even more yummy the next day so don't hesitate to make it ahead for a future dinner...

    My son and husband are both obsessed with the tripe from our favorite Chinese dim sum restaurant, so I've spent the last month trying to perfect a recipe at home to duplicate it. The trick is to infuse the tripe with lots of the ginger and scallion flavor while it's becoming tender, during the initial boiling step. The outcome is a flavorful dish well worth the effort. Here it is... and enjoy!

    When I get the craving for some wings, I make this simple, sweet and sticky sauce - a real crowd pleaser! Even the kids will love it! The extra step of brining the wings will be the big pay-off as the chicken meat will be moist and flavorful right to the bone. Your family will ask you to make these delicious wings again and again.

    As a kid, I looked forward to one of my mom's signature dinners: fried chicken wings and egg drop soup. I have no idea how she came up with this combination, but as a mother of two myself, I want to create the same memories for my own kids. The egg drop soup I've had in restaurants over the years always seemed to pale in comparison to my mom's and I recently figured out why. My mom added a tiny bit of sugar to the soup to balance the usually salty/peppery taste of this soup. No wonder why I loved this as a kid. I served this a few days ago and my son asked for seconds (something he never does)... so 'thanks, mom!' Enjoy this simple, yet tasty soup!

    Recipe #357865

    A rich and creamy blend of bow-tie pasta, seasoned chicken, tangy sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. I love making this dish for company and I get many requests for the recipe. It's a one pot-dish that uses ingredients that pleases many palates. So pair it with a salad and you're good to go! I sometimes make this dish ahead of time and refridgerate it overnight. it tastes even better when the flavors are given at least a couple hours to develop. So reheat and relax!
