Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle Mayonnaise

I went through a phase when I wanted to learn the pitch-perfect method for frying French fries. I’ve always subscribed to the twice-fried method. It results in a pretty good fried French fry: a soft interior and crispy exterior. Then I visited April Bloomfield’s New York restaurant, The Breslin, and was blown away by her famous thrice-fried French fries. It was then that I decided I’m leaving French fries to a restaurant-only event. Between the big pot of hot oil and the fact that now I should definitely fry them three times, they’ve fallen into that category that isn’t homemade. Except when I’m craving them AND I can turn to my trusty ol’ oven.

Pan-Fried Tofu

I often hear tofu described as tasteless, textureless, watery goop that reeks of soy. When I hear descriptions like this, I can only conclude that the tofu the utterer has had was prepared wrong. Personally I find tofu to be incredibly flavorful, mouth pleasingly textured and so versatile it can even make for a tasty dessert.

For many, Labor Day is a sign that the season is making that switch from summer to fall. I wish that were the case in Los Angeles, but summer is still very much present. There are very high temperatures (boo!) and beautiful summer produce still lingering (yay!). Blueberries seem to be having their best moment right now.

Make Eggplant and Tomato Salad

This is a marvelous late summer salad using produce at the peak of their season. With juicy sweet tomatoes, and melt-in-your-mouth tender eggplant marinated in a tomato vinaigrette, it may sound a little simplistic, but when you have just-picked produce this good, it doesn’t need to be complicated to be good.

I love color when it comes to food, which is funny because when it comes to my clothes I’m very much of a neutrals person. I love a black dress, grey jeans and black boots. And the color beige is my best friend; but when it comes to produce, more is more!

Eggplant is one of those vegetables that just doesn’t get the love it deserves. It makes for a good eggplant parmesan and baba ghanoush, but beyond that, it’s often a forgotten summer side that’s left to char on the grill while people go for the bell peppers and zucchini.

Make Your Own Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Before I started cooking, I had no idea I could make my own salad dressings. Now, I wouldn’t think to not make my own. My go-to is usually a bit of champagne vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. It’s the dressing I use at least a few times a week. There are no measurements, just eye-balling it and adjusting as I go. When I want something a bit more indulgent, delicious, I change gears and make a buttermilk ranch dressing.

Easy Weeknight Meal: Honey Lemon Chicken

Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe

A first generation immigrant who cooked for a mixed race household, my mom always managed to come up with quick clever meals that bridged the gap between east and west. Amongst my favorite dishes was a concoction of chicken, ketchup, lemon peel and brown sugar. It was sweet, savory, and marvelously comforting.
