Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

We swapped shrimp for crab in this Chinese takeout favorite to save sodium and money, but we didn't skimp on flavor!

Refreshing Thai Salad
This is a delicious and vitamin packed pasta salad. A great summer dish that I often take to picnics. People always ask for this recipe and even my teenagers love it.
Restaurant-style hot and sour soup, minus the sugar, corn starch and MSG. You can add whatever other vegetables you like (hot and sour soup usually has mushrooms but I don't like them). I usually add bean sprouts and brown rice and serve it as a complete meal.
Zesty, spicy, and a little sweet....great side dish for curry or other asian cuisine.
This is one type of Lumpia (Tagalog for Eggroll-it's a Filipino Eggroll). I prefer using Ground Beef and Ground Pork but you can use the Ground Chicken or Ground Turkey along with the Pork also. I DO NOT COOK MY MEAT AND VEGGIES I prefer to mix them together in a bowl with the seasonings and then roll them in the Lumpia to a somewhat small size then deep fry them. They are more flavorful that way. You can cook it if you want to but it may not come out as well. I also prefer to use Chinese Yard Long Pole Beans cut into small diagonal pieces instead of regular Green Beans. I also use MSG in some of my cooking or otherwise known as Accent. It does help to bring flavors out in your cooking, but, this is optional for anyone else but me. I do not use regular Egg Roll Wraps. I prefer to use Lumpia Wraps(o'tasty spring roll wraps is the commercial name for them in the stores) which are larger and come in crepe thin slices. I also prefer to seal my wrappers with raw egg. It comes out better that way but you can use water-flour paste also. I also prefer to cut my veggies into tiny matchstick pieces. It's better that way in the Lumpia but you can do it anyway you want. For a dipping sauce you can use the Lumpia Sauce recipe below but in mine I turn it into a Sweet and Sour Sauce by making Annatto Water and adding 1/3 cup to the recipe instead of water, and 1/4 c crushed pineapples in juice. You can also mix in bits of bell pepper if you like. This is the Annatto Water recipe aka Achiote Water also: In a small heavy saucepan, heat the water over medium heat. Add the annatto seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until the water becomes a rich, orange-red color, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Strain the water into a jar, discarding the seeds, and keep covered in the refrigerator. You can do the same thing using Oil to make Annatto Oil. I also prefer to use just the soy sauce and about 1/4 vinegar mixed with fresh, not cooked, garlic and onion diced up and crushed with a bit of black pepper or chili peppers crushed in as a dipping sauce. I also like to use 1/4 Fish Sauce(Patis) mixed with 1/2 Lemon or Lime Juice for dipping also.
So light and tasty. Great for a hot summer night!
I'm currently sick and needed a quick and easy soup to make that wasn't canned because the canned soups seem too heavy for me to finish.
Cheating, using bottled peanut sauce. Still yummy, though!
Delicious and quick
This delicious salad is an explosion of color, flavor, and texture. It can be altered to your own tastes by adding more or less of the vegetables
A slimmed down version of your favorite Chinese restaurant appetizer
This is an easy Szechuan sauce recipe. It has a lot of flavor. When you add the hot oil to the chili paste the aroma just fills the room.
We love this slaw! Thanks to my friend for introducing me to it.
