Spicy Stir Fried Bacon

December 13, 2014 - 2:38 pm

In the last month, I've managed to make four recipes I found at maangchi.com. Originally, I was just trying to figure out what to do with a nearly full tub of koren hot pepper paste (gochujang) leftover from a recipe I tried months ago. I was immediately smitten by her. The recipes all looked great and she made cooking korean dishes seem easy despite all of the "exotic" ingredients. After my first success with Spicy Braised Chicken (Dak-bokkeumtang), I ventured further into the site and found several other recipes I was interested in trying, including her recipe for Spicy Stir Fried Pork (Dwaejigogi-bokkeum). Having had all of the ingredients on hand except pork belly, I substituted that with bacon and called it dinner.

Craft Beer After Yoga Class in South Carolina

November 16, 2014 - 3:18 pm

I tried yoga once. It was the longest single hour workout I've ever done. On Monday nights at the Quest Brewing Co in Greenville, SC, they do things a bit differently with their Hatha & Hops class. I'm not sure if that hour would have seemed longer knowing I had to wait for that beer, or whether that hour would have flown by with the anticipation of a delicious reward for finishing the workout. No doubt I'd give yoga one more try should Hatha & Hops find its way to Los Angeles.

Raspberry Lambic Brownies

September 23, 2012 - 3:15 pm

The beneficiary of my baking really likes the combination of raspberries and chocolate. After searching online for baked good ideas using some sort of beer, I came across these Cherry Lambic Brownies at Oh My Veggies. The modification was obvious - it's raspberry season, so substitute the cherries for fresh raspberries, and use raspberry lambic instead of cherry. The results were quite satisfying!

Seared Scallops with Apple Cider Balsamic Glaze

August 7, 2012 - 10:34 pm

A funny thing happened a few weeks back: I had an unexplained craving for scallops. Up until that time, I wasn't even sure that I liked scallops. In fact, I was pretty sure I didn't. Logic tells me that somewhere, deep down, that craving was calling to a primal memory of enjoying scallops that I must have had at some point in my life.

Given that the craving was unexpected, I hadn't planned a thing. Naturally, I scoured the internet and came up with this recipe from She Cooks He Cleans. All in all a success, although I found out scallops are rather pricey.
