Thai Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Thai Hot and Sour Chicken Soup Recipe featured-9650

I’m overwhelmed by all the Internet love! You all have made last week so much more bearable, and the healing over the sudden loss of Buster easier. I think the one most affected by Buster’s passing was Coco. There were times when we came home, and Coco would greet us and then immediately looked behind us to see if Buster …

Green Bean and Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry

green-bean-mushroom-stirfry-recipe-354

This recipe was originally slated for my cookbook, but I seem to have too many recipes already slated for the Vegetable chapter, so I’m puttin’ it here and sharing with you on the blog. Learning a good stir fry technique for home cooking is important – it will save you from throwing out the odds and ends of vegetables in …

Seafood Miso Noodle Soup

A couple of weeks ago, we had a massive Temaki sushi party with friends. If you’ve never been to one, I highly suggest making friends with the fine folks at I Love Blue Sea  or head over to Casson Trenor’s site, Sustainable Sushi and host a sushi party of your own. Since I’m a type of person who always over-cooks for dinner parties …

10-Minute Shrimp and Mushroom Thai Curry

When all else fails, there’s always curry to fall back on. Despite all the beautiful food you see on this blog, I do have my share of kitchen disasters (that blob of charcoal was supposed to be fried chicken). Thai curry is my “break in case of emergency” meal – as I always have a can of coconut milk, a …

15 Minute Japanese Mushroom Flatbread

japanese-mushroom-flatbread-8954

The intentions of making my own pesto sauce from scratch was certainly there, but something silly like I-killed-my-basil-plant got in the way of my plans. There’s nothing more sad than walking out to my mini-garden and seeing a sad, shriveled and shrunken herb. Oh poor little thing! You had such potential! I have a feeling that the mint got a …

Steak with Creamy Whiskey Mushroom Sauce

0912_mushroom-cream-sauce_4053

Every cook should have a great steak topping in their repertoire. Either because you A) enjoy having a sauce smothering your steak B) want to to stretch out a piece of meat to feed the family or C) attempt cover up a botched steak job. I’m in category A, especially if it involves heavy cream and whisky, but I’ve been …

Matsutake Mushroom Dobin Mushi Recipe

One of my favorite cooking shows of all time is the original Iron Chef. No, not the modern version that plays over and over on Food Network right now, but the one taped in Japan with the silly English dubbing that always cracks me up. The episode that I drooled most over was “Battle Matsutake.” Matsutake Tempura?! Oh hello lover! …

[imagebrowser id=9] As promised, here is the start of my Japanese Mushroom Lovefest Recipe Collection. The first recipe I made was a super-simple noodle dish that came from my #1 Japanese cookbook – The Japanese Kitchen, Kimiko Barber (hmmm…should we do a giveaway for this cookbook?) I used a mixture of these two Japanese Shimeji mushrooms: Though, if you don’t …

Korean Glass Noodles – Jap Chae

from the Steamy Kitchen archives…. The software that runs my website has a nifty little feature that tells me what terms people are entering into the search box when they come to Steamy Kitchen. Although smart authors would probably use this information to enhance their site and serve the needs of their readers, the only reason I check this page …
