Nathan’s first hamburger buns recipe

hamburger-bun-recipe-1962-featured

This is a post from my son, Nathan, who is 9 years old. It’s his very first post!   When I grow up, I want to take over Steamy Kitchen and teach kids how to cook. Dad will like to teach kids how to garden and grow their own food with aquaponics. But, I’m not going to talk with Dad about it …

Vietnamese Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce

spring rolls with orange almond sauce recipe-1654

I very rarely veer off my “tried and true” basic recipe for Vietnamese Nuoc Cham (dipping sauce with lime juice, fish sauce, chili peppers, sugar, water) for Vietnamese Spring Rolls. It’s easy, predictable and I can make the sauce just by taste without measuring anything! But just because I *LOVE* something doesn’t mean that my entire family loves it too. My fish-fearing …

Grilled Kimcheese Sandwich

Is this not the most brilliant name for a sandwich?! It’s created by the one and only, Joe Yonan, food guru over at the Washington Post and one of the most happy journalists I’ve ever met (really!) He’s got a new cookbook out, called Eat Your Vegetables: Bold Recipes for the Single Cook – it elegantly follows his first book, …

Roasted Duck with Chinese Steamed Buns

On the dinner plate, Chicken has been the reigning king of fowl for far too long. I’ve been asking my meat market to stock a more diversified fresh poultry section, but apparently, I’m the only fool asking for such. Any poultry other than chicken and ground turkey gets banned to the frozen foods department: quail, duck, goose and turkey. (Guinea …

Tofu Prosciutto Panini

You probably did a double-take on that recipe title. Tofu? In a Panini? Just try it and you’ll be surprised at how well it does work. Tofu is one of the most versatile foods out there, it plays nice with other foods and just blends in. I’ll be creating a series of tofu recipes, as I’m working with an American …

Super Frico Grilled Cheese Sandwich

super-frico-grilled-cheese-sandwich-recipe-344-2

Usually, the kitchen is loud….or should I say “lively” – the boys are running through with their Nerf guns, old-school Madonna playing on Pandora, me singing, “borderline….feels like I’m going to lose my mind…you just keep on pushing my love….” and Coco at my feet, waiting for me to drop a morsel of food as I fling my arms trying …

Broccoli Spanakopita

Rule #1 of food blog design: Never launch a new design or features the day before you go on vacation or travel. I thought I had learned this lesson, oh…..5 WordPress themes ago, but apparently I underwent a momentary lapse of good judgement last Friday. Not only were we going on a family vacation at Disney World, but we were …

Flank Steak with Goat Cheese on Toast

Flank Steak Goat Cheese Tapas Bruschetta Recipe

While we were in Mexico for Food Blogger Camp back in February, I got a sneak peek at the photos that my good friends, Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple shot of Cristina Ferrare’s new cookbook. I’m sure you heard of Cristina – she’s got a cooking show, “Big Bowl of Love” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Diane …
