Mix Together a Bowl of Kale Slaw

Kale Slaw recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I have a confession to make … despite making concessions based on its nutritional content and posting the occasional recipe, truth be told, kale isn’t something I’d ever order off a restaurant menu, and it isn’t really something I’d choose to buy unless it was on sale, or I felt like I had to do a kale post after a series of meat posts. Such was the case this past week when I found a big bunch of kale at a grocery store in Tokyo. Kale hasn’t caught on here much, and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen it in Japan outside of the occasional decorative planter.

The pairing of black pepper and cheddar is one that is longstanding, and for good reason—it’s special! It goes back to the days when I used to come home from school and make myself mac n cheese from the blue box. And always, always was there tons of black pepper cracked into the pot and even more on top for garnish. I used to sit in front of the television so content, watching a half hour or so of TV before it was time to do my homework.

Prepare a Plate of Arroz Amarillo

Arroz Amarillo recipe

One look at a mound of arroz amarillo, and I always anticipate something incredibly savory with a flavor to match its intense color. Unfortunately my fantasies of an ultra-flavorful rice are usually shattered in one bite by mushy, bland, one-dimensional rice that tastes of nothing more than MSG laden “sazón.”

You know spring is officially in full effect when rhubarb starts popping up at super markets. I made this last week when I bought 4 pounds and was looking for an array of ways to utilize it. I felt like Bubba from Forest Gump, trying to find a million ways to use up the stuff: rhubarb pie, rhubarb crisp, rhubarb margarita…and rhubarb curd. Oddly enough there’s actually a shortage of it in Los Angeles right now. I tried to buy some today, in fact, and nope, not a single grocery store has it in stock. I’m not sure what the shortage was caused by. Anyone know?

While substituting plant-based ingredients for eggs in foods like mayonnaise, pudding or cake isn’t too difficult, it gets a little more challenging when you’re trying to make an egg dish without any eggs.

Spring is a pretty exciting time for most people; especially those of you who have endured a brutal winter. Temperatures are finally letting up, flowers are finally blooming and the sun is beginning to shine a bit brighter. Spring!

They say “necessity is the mother of invention,” and after coming up with this absurdly simple Cheesecake/Quesadilla mashup, I have to say I agree. It started innocently enough with a hankering for a creamy dessert. Normally this wouldn’t be a huge issue in my home as my fridge, freezer and pantry are almost always stocked with the makings of any number of desserts.

When I was a kid, my go-to afternoon snack was a quesadilla or a pot of instant mac-n-cheese. I still love those two things; they’ll always have a special place in my heart. But now that I’m a grown-up, I try and make my snacks and quick meals a bit healthier. This bowl of kimchi fried rice goodness is in heavy rotation. It utilizes ingredients I always seem to have on hand. Kimchi has become a fridge staple in the last year and I love to add it to lots of things, or even eat it all on its own.
