nice round-up!

Soo @ hungryones

Can I come by next time you make those pork chops? Looks awesome!


Your household eats very well! Where do you purchase the smoked duck breast?


Thanks Kat!

You may have to fight off the Missus and a few of my friends Soo!

Bristol Farms Sandy. If they don't have it in their poultry aisle, they have them frozen. This is one of the few frozen items I actually thinks holds up well.


whoa, that's a pretty different looking crab! I'm not sure I've ever seen one like that.

If I'm ever down your way, I'm inviting myself over for dinner, haha.


If you're ever down this way you're invited....or at least I'd be happy to take you to dinner Tofugirl!


Can you share your recipe for tofu with black bean? It looks fantastic!


Hi Liza - It's mostly a bunch of techniques thrown together. A couple of key points; 2 Tb of fermented black beans drained, mix with 2 Tb Shaoxing wine, and dried red chilis, and two small pieces ginger. You'll use this as you base when you start. You'll finish with a sauce made with Light Soy sauce and the following ingredients in ratio sugar (2:1), water (2:1), cornstarch (2:1) and dark soy sauce (4:1). Start with the black bean mixture in hot oil. When fragrant, add your ingredients, when ready, turn flame down and add finishing mixture.


Thanks so much Kirk! I have to try it.


Hi Liza - Please let me know how things turn out!
