Baby Bok Choy w Mushrooms & Oyster Sauce ~ Quick, Easy & Delicious
When ever I am on the road, one of my non-guilty pleasures is dinner at a Chinese buffet.  Armed with an eBook and headset or pair of ear plugs (the good Chinese buffets tend to be crowded with families from the surrounding area and packed with noisy children), I walk the buffet line to peruse the offerings.  Once I...

I should have taken a picture of that!” Which is why today I submit to you “The Last Bite.” This is a picture of the last bite of the...
Bánh Xèo – Crispy Vietnamese Crepes
One of my favorite discoveries during my trip to Vietnam were Bánh xèo, Vietnamese savoury fried pancakes or crepes made of rice flour, water, and turmeric powder, and if you’ve ever seen them made, it will come as no surprise that the name literally translates as “sizzling cake”. Individually sized Bánh xèo is one of the signature dishes of Central...
Bagel w Lox & Cream Cheese ~ A New York Classic
The everything bagel with lox and scallion cream cheese is a NYC classic. In New York you can hardly walk down the street without tripping over a bagel place.  You have the traditional silver sided coffee carts selling bagels along with their coffee in the blue paper cups with the traditional Greek key pattern.  You have Starbucks selling bagels that...
