In honor of salad month, here is one of my recipes for a delicious steak salad.
It’s long been known that there are many health benefits to drinking tea. I try to have at least a cup or two a day. My favorites are green and black tea. I like to add a small piece of ginger, honey and a slice of lemon. It is so relaxing to have a cup before bedtime. Check out this article/link about the different types and how they can benefit your health!

I will be doing demos today at 2:30, Sat at 12:30 and Sun at 12:30. Hope you can make it! It’s a great show that they put on with lots to see, do….and shop
I just posted a new pic from today. What a great group of people I got to demo for! Can’t wait for tomorrows.
The descriptions and explanations were very true. The evolution of Asian cuisine has been very interesting. Although I like to cook “traditional” Chinese food, I have spent a lot of time incorporating new ingredients into my recipes.
I was born in Taiwan. I have lived in many places since – Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, and the U.S. Although I have great memories of them all, Brunei sticks out in my head. I lived there from age 2 until 10. I remember cooking with all of my family members – from littlest to big, we all had a part to play. I am sure that living there influenced my desire, passion and interest in cooking. What was so special about Brunei, was the different influences on the cuisine. There was Indian, Malay, Chinese and French. The ingredients that stick out in my mind were the bountys of fresh seafood, curry, chiles (spicy), lime and cooking with a lot of fresh fruit…..especially rambutan. I am including a link if you want to learn more about Brunei. I hope to get back there some day soon!
As many of you know, I am a firm believer in using the freshest and healthiest ingredients in my cooking. It’s not always possible, but I do my best.
Last night I had the honor of teaching an Asian Fusion class at Whole Foods Market in Ann Arbor (through the Ann Arbor parks and rec dept.). For those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to have a Whole Foods in your market, or aren’t familiar with it, it is a state of the art, full service natural foods grocery store. They have everything from an in-house bakery, deli, smokehouse, sushi and noodle bar, certified organic produce & hormone and antibiotic free meats…and much, much more!
Going to Whole Foods is not just a shopping trip, it is an experience. Thank goodness for stores like this that offer us the opportunity to easily access so many healthy ingredients and products! I have provided you with some links below to their website, and my teaching info for future classes through AAReced. Have a healthy cooking weekend!
We ALL need to do our part for the environment. Big or small, your contribution matters! Plant a tree, recycle those cans or volunteer in your community for a green cause. Here’s a link to the official Earth Day Site.
