Gomoku Chahan Features Rice and Seasonal Ingredients

Gomoku Chahan recipe

Similar to the culture of American-style Chinese food we have in the States, Japan has wafu-chuuka or “Japanese-style Chinese”. Along with dishes like Ramen and Ebi Chiri, Gomoku Chahan or “Five Ingredient Fried Rice” is a great example of this pseudo-cuisine.

Make Pumpkin Waffles for a Fall Breakfast

Pumpkin Waffles recipe

Last weekend was a weekend that’ll go down in history as one of my most relaxing, ever! There were flannel pajamas, no alarm set and when I woke up, I had everything in my kitchen so I could throw together these waffles. As I sat in bed and ate them (yes, breakfast in bed!), I watched the documentary, Soul of a Banquet. Have you seen it? It’s all about Cecilia Chiang’s life and work with her very famous (but now closed) restaurant in San Francisco, Mandarin.

These corn and crab fritters may not look like much, but one bite and I promise you’ll be hooked. With a golden brown shell made of caramelized cheese on the outside and crisp sweet corn and flavorful crab on the inside, it’ll take more than a little willpower to stop at just one of these light crisp fritters.

In summer my weekends usually revolve around being outside, eating brunch in the sun or going for long hikes. But when the temperatures shift, and the light turns that golden autumnal color, my weekends consist of setting time aside to bake. And bake. And bake again.

If you’ve been following my rantings for long you know that I have an issue with salads that leave you hungry after an hour. This salmon and potato salad will not only fill you up and keep you going as the fall chill sets in, it’s also loaded with Vitamin D thanks to the salmon.

Have a Bowl of Fall Granola

Fall Granola recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Let’s see if I can put everything fall-related into a batch of granola! There are spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. There are pumpkin seeds. And there are apples, though not fresh; they’re freeze-dried. Feel free to add fresh slices of apple or pear if you like. The only thing I’m missing is pumpkin, which I tried to incorporate but I came to the realization that freeze-dried pumpkin tastes like green tea to me. Seriously, not pleasant.

Make Crispy Roasted Hen of the Woods

Crispy Roast Hen of the Woods recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

After reading the name of this dish you’d be forgiven if you were expecting a crispy skinned roast bird. Hen of the Woods (a.k.a. Maitake) are a variety of mushroom with a robust earthy aroma and caps that fan out like a feathered plume. These thin caps make them perfect for roasting, which concentrates their bold flavor and renders the tips golden brown and crisp.

Make a Stack of Apple Ginger Pancakes

Apple Ginger Pancakes recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I’m what you call a “pancake enthusiast.” I have consumed and made a ton of variations on this breakfast-favorite. So, I guess you could say I’m a bit picky. For one, I don’t like them too fluffy. I know that may be an abomination to some, but I like them to be on the thinner side yet moist, tender and soft inside. My favorite stack always uses buttermilk; I love the tang it gives! And when fall is in the air, I like to fold in some of my favorite fruits and spices.
