Malaysian* Steamed Chocolate Cake

*note: not Malaysian at all Recently, a coworker hosted a Malaysian/South East Asian potluck night.  I had asked the host what to bring, and she suggested dessert.  Now, I don’t know how to make any Malay food nor desserts, so I was banging my head against a wall trying to figure out what to make.  Finally,…

Escape Okonomiyaki

Our newest obsession has been to experience ‘escape rooms’ – Vancouver has had an explosion of these businesses pop up, each completely different from one another.  We’ve probably gone to two dozen of them, and have no plans of slowing down!  What does this have to do with okonomiyaki?  Absolutely nothing! 🙂 I’ve always loved…

Sisig using Portuguese-Style Roasted Suckling Pig

It was my birthday recently, and as a tradition, I usually end up going to Chefe Daniel (at his new location in Surrey) for a group dinner.  This year, I finally planned it far enough in advance to pre order in an entire suckling pig (?!!) After feasting on it with 20 of my closest…

Dumb Trini Fry Bake and Saltfish

My co-worker, who was born and raised in Trinidad, has been going on a Trini-kick for the past few weeks.  He booked his tickets to Carnival, and has been getting in the mood for it by speaking the language, and eating the food.  Last week, he brought up that he was missing fry bake and…

Spiked Watermelon Lychee Bubble Tea

This is a super simple watermelon slush drink that really hits the spot on hot summer days!  The name however, is totally wrong — there is no Tea at all in this drink.  Also, depending where you go, they call the drink by different names.  In LA, if you don’t call it Boba, even if…

Messi Pesto Chicken Wings

Rounding out the end of summer, we grew a tonne of basil — more basil than any one family could possibly eat.  Not wanting to waste it, we made it into a pesto (simply basil, garlic, olive oil, parmesan, and a little salt and black pepper.  Use a touch of lemon juice to prevent it from…

Roasted Corn on the Cob – Jax style

I came up with this method of cooking corn one summer when we bought over 12 ears of corn and got tired of eating them boiled or on the bbq.  You can use any combination of spices or salts, our favourites being Cajun and Roasted Garlic and if you want to keep the salt intake down,…

Birthday Cola BBQ Ribs

Recently, it was Jax’s birthday, and it has now become a tradition to throw a backyard BBQ for her and all of her friends.  One item that is easy to make, and share amongst 50 people are racks of ribs.  Since you are able to do most of the prep work well ahead of time,…

Mushrooms Roasted Japanese Style

I love mushrooms!!  I order this dish at our local Japanese restaurant every time we go there, so when I saw this on a tv cooking show and realized how easy it was I had to make it.  We ate it as a side dish to CS’ Blazing Cast Iron Steak  and it was soo yummy! All you…
