Corn Tortilla Recipe


May 29th, 2019

A corn tortilla recipe can be a dime a dozen on the internet. Why, because it is the simplest and most rewarding flavor you'll ever experience.

Once you've mastered the technique, experiment by adding poblano pepper juice for a green tortilla or turmeric for orange ones. The ideas are endless, start making them today and you'll be on your way creating your own street tacos that everyone will request. Serve them with refried beans for a meatless meal.

Sardinian Cracker


May 24th, 2019

Sardinian cracker called Carta Da Musica, meaning "sheets of music" are a treat for anyone.  These wonderfully crisp crackers pair well with a summer salad acting like a crouton, or even eaten as a snack. Sardinian sheep herdsmen ate these crackers while they worked the hills of Sardinia.  Served with a bit of hard sheep's cheese like Pecorino Toscano for added protein. I had a creative idea, by adding fresh oregano and sourdough to the cracker dough for added flavor and nutrition. I also make them without the oregano and top with cinnamon and sugar for the grandkids to enjoy.

Chinese Pork Bao


May 3rd, 2019

The Chinese pork Bao is over 2,000 years old. Made before the terra cotta warriors and before the 1st Emperor of China. It has a very impressive history to say the least. In the USA every China Town has the humble Chinese pork Bao to buy. I was on a quest to make this humble Bao for myself. As a student of Asian cooking I sought out the chefs with knowledge of traditional Chinese foods and customs. My son-in-law is Chinese and his family couldn't give me advice on the Bao. If they want Dim Sum they will go out....
