Spicy Crackers: Asian-Tasty Cream Crackers Recipe

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

More than a year ago I introduced you to the spicy saltines craze. Since then I’ve mentioned a variation or two. They’re ridiculously easy to make, and even easier to make disappear. They go great with most any snack.

Their only drawback: They ain’t no stinkin’ diet […]

Fish 4 Friday: Lent's Here! Time to Get Serious...

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Yes, it’s Lent. Goodbye Fat Tuesday…

Wifey says that some of us, including some of y’all out there in Readerland, need to get serious about fish for Friday for the next six weeks. (She also says you know who you are.) Then she gave me The […]

Fish 4 Friday: Thai Monkfish Soup

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Ugly. That’s all you can call it. Ugly, UGly, UGLY! (And no, I never dated somebody who looked like that; it’s a rude and vicious slander. She could take her dentures out to soak.)

Goodbye Instant Noodles, Hello Spicy Italian

The end of Asian Noodles Month is upon us. Good thing it doesn’t weigh too much! Sorry, couldn’t control myself; I’ll keep my day job for now…

It’s been a fine inaugural month for an event that I hope to repeat next year, bigger and better. If you have any ideas how to improve the […]

Instant Noodles: Paldo Hot & Spicy Yukejang Noodles

Today for lunch I tried something different. Oh, I’m still working through my new collection of instant noodles! I had never, ever tried Korean instant noodles before, though. One of the bowls I grabbed on my recent run through the MT Supermarket was Paldo’s Hot & Spicy Noodle, Yukejang style.

Yukejang has many alternative spellings: […]

How to Make Instant Noodles Taste Like a Feast

First, a quick reminder of what we’re up to here. We want tasty noodles, and we want them quick; we don’t want to make a lot of mess; we don’t want to break the bank. “Taste like a feast” is relative too. You can always splurge, but what if you’re on a tight budget? […]
