Sometimes there are traditions that we become die-hard fans and follow so faithfully year after year. Mine is black-eyed peas (for luck) and rice, a green salad or “green” something for money, and of course the latest we have adopted is no laundry on New Year’s Day because it is bad luck.

While I used beef broth to make this recipe, you can use vegetable broth for a vegetarian (or kosher) alternative. Another note, while many recipes call for grated cheese, I preferred using a slice of gruyere cheese since it created a nice thick layer.

Though I’ve never been to Taiwan, there’s one thing I know for sure: I’m a huge fan of night market-style fried chicken. It’s one of a variety of xiaochi (aka “finger foods) found in Taiwanese night markets and is more or less popcorn chicken seasoned with garlic, soy, and a good amount of Chinese Five-Spice powder.

It seems like for the past 5 years I have been on the search for the perfect Gingerbread men recipe. The first year that my friend and I made Gingerbread men it was hardly a gingerbread cookie, but more of a sugar cookie with some spices thrown in – and it was amazing.

As I'm writing this, I'm sitting by the roaring fire and listening to my dad play Christmas carols on the piano. Today was a very busy day, as I'm sure everyones was.

I Love onions. All onions. But no raw onion will ever compare to sweet caramelized onions. They tend to be used as toppings rather than the main focus in recipes. So i’m here to change that…. This is an excellent recipe for entertaining guest and it’s versatile for a few reasons.

Many times rolls and breads are an afterthought of a meal, something to serve just because. I, however, would be okay with a meal that consisted only of bread, but that’s just me. Forget everything else, I love my carbs.

My ghost of Christmas past would bring a Tom and Jerry sweatsuit, a big yellow bag which contained the gifts the whole family, a baked fillet of salmon and a spinach flan.

When I bought my copy of Martha Stewart’s Cookies back in September, I spent many nights browsing the book from cover to cover, trying to come up with a game-plan or schedule as to when I was going to do one recipe or the other.

I got home to Silver Spring from Tucson Saturday night. What did I do my first day home on Sunday? Start making Christmas cookies of course. This will continue for the next two weeks in my home.

My other half is a big fan of Christmas pudding and after two years in Singapore with not a pudding in sight, not that you want to eat something so heavy in the hot weather, I thought it was time to rectify the issue for this coming Christmas.

The past few weeks went by in a whirlwind. I thought and did nothing else but bake. I am delirious (no not from the rum) to have done so much in such little time, but also as tired as my oven is . Cookies, cakes and more cakes have been my routine.

Take all the peas, chillies and garlic and coarsely grind the mixture in a food processor. Now heat a little oil in a pan. Empty the mix in the pan and sauté for about 4-5 mins at a low heat until such time the peas are cooked. Add salt to taste and keep it aside.

For vegetarians, Mediterranean food is truly a delight. In my travels across the world, especially around UK and Europe, Good vegetarian food is hard to find, especially if one doesn’t want potatoes. Although I am not a vegetarian, I don’t particularly enjoy seafood and on the contrary, am an extremely happy vegetarian.

I am a huge pasta fan! I try to make pasta dishes as healthy as possible because we all know that eating too much pasta is not good for our weight.

A proper roast-chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, beef, game-should be juicy, with a snappy crust, and flavored with herbs and/or spices or simply well seasoned with salt and pepper. When fully rested, it should be brought to the table and carved. Preferably on a beat-up wooden board.

Looking for a dress for Christmas Eve is always fun. By the way, my idea of fun is BodyPump, kickboxing, and running for 11 miles at a stretch. Obviously, my fun must involve torture and special wardrobe-and sweat.
