It’s not often that you meet soul mates or life-long family friends. We (and I mean every one of us in the Steamy Kitchen family, including Coco) feel extremely lucky to count Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple as part of our family.   I think that was 4 years ago when I first saw their post on Tofu …

Ted Reader is a man I’ve referred to as someone who tiptoes the fine line between genius and lunatic, and that’s exactly why I love this man. His cookbooks are big, bold and absolutely nuts. Ted just came out with king of all burger books – Napolean’s Everyday Gourmet Burgers. Meet Ted and the Ultimate Cheeseburger Melt. It’s as big …

Lychees, Longan, Rambutan!

A beautiful Asian tropical salad with a pineapple “bowl” – canned longan, lychee, rambutan paired with some fresh tropical fruits. Some of my favorite fruit come in cans. I’m not talking about tasteless, mushy pears or the stained red maraschino cherries, but the Asian stuff like lychee, longan and rambutan. These are fruits that I can rarely find fresh in …

Cardamom Coffee Zucchini Bread

We were quite a boring family when I grew up in North Platte, Nebraska. There just weren’t very many super exciting things for a Chinese immigrant family to do in the small town and we lived on a dirt road, across from the empty field lot, next to the traffic light in the middle of nowhere. Usually on weekends, we’d …

vienna-sausage-fried-rice

My editor, Jeff Houck, sent over a picture of pan-fried Scrapple slice and my heart fluttered like crazy. “Scrapple? Scrapple! What’s Scrapple? I asked him,” and within 30 minutes was off to the supermarket to find Scrapple, a distant cousin to Spam. Yes, I have an odd fascination with meat that comes in it’s own coffin. “hmmm…I wonder if I …
