Cooking Secrets of My Mother: Part 1: Stuffing Meat


My mom is an awesome cook – she never used to be, but taught herself the abc’s of cooking so that she could feed us! Here she teaches me how to make Minced Chicken Vegi with Tomato Achar (pickle)…it’s so good. This is not a typical Nepalese cuisine, but an original dish created by my mom…

A Japanese Specialty


mboshifunky

I looooovvveee umeboshi—a Japanese treat. Yummy? Absolutely. It is a tad bit high in sodium so daily consumption is not recommended! The flavor comes from salt and the color purple from shiso (perilla) leaves. It is most used as a filling for onigiri (a popular rice ball wrapped in nori). I like hachimitchu (honey) plum for the sweetness. Give it a try…you’ll love it too. I put it on a plain bowl of rice with nori (dry seaweed) and also drop it in a cup of hot green tea to get the bitterness out.

Roasted Peanut Butter Toast Sprinkled with Blueberries


bluberry

Breakfast: Absolutely the best combination…

I love Safeway Select Blueberry Preserve and spread it on my toast. It’s the best sweet treat out there. When I’m out of the blueberry preserve, I spread organic roasted peanut butter (I’m addicted to Berkeley Bowl’s
PBs…another favorite) and drizzle it with blueberries (the best-seasoned fruit to nibble now). The taste? Seriously delicious!

Stir-fry onion and chicken with a spoonful of peanut oil. Cook until chicken is browned. Add yam and carrot to the mix. Heat for 10 minutes.

choco

Pour hot water (roughly covering all ingredients) and add curry cubes.
