  • Asian Grilled Chicken WingsWhen I was growing up, my parents used to throw a giant bbq every summer.  How I miss those bbqs, because I’ve never seen anyone serve anywhere near as much food (meat in particular) as they did.  I remember there always being hamburgers, hot...
  • Greek Quinoa Salad RecipeQuinoa is high in nutrients and an excellent plant-based source of protein.  Since it is basically flavourless, it is very versatile for salad making.  You can use whatever vegetables, herbs, cheeses, vinaigrette, etc. that you like.  Here I’...

  • Yeung Chow Fried Rice RecipeThis is Ed’s favourite fried rice dish, so we order it often but it’s really simple to make.  Note that fried rice is always supposed to be made with day old rice, because the moisture from fresh rice may result in a mushy dish.  In s...

  • Chana Masala (chickpeas)Chana masala is an Indian dish that consists mainly of chickpeas and tomatoes.  It is mildly spiced and is sour in taste.  What I love about this recipe is that the tartness comes from amchur / amchoor powder, which is ground, dried mangoes!  (You...
