Pies

Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie

This is an intensely flavored pie, from the gingersnap crust to the well-spiced, concentrated pumpkin filling. It’s so much more than the recipe found on the canned pumpkin.

Asian Honey Garlic Chicken Kabobs

Three and a half months in to a global pandemic, socializing with friends indoors or meeting in restaurants isn’t an option. There’s little comfort level for sharing food or even serving utensils. The best way we’ve found to see friends is outside, and sharing food straight off the grill (everyone can grab their own skewers) seems reasonable.

These flavorful kabobs are absolutely delicious and provided a bright moment of entertaining during a long challenging summer.

Teriyaki Chicken Salad

We love this flavorful, guilt-free super green cabbage, broccoli, and pea salad topped with juicy teriyaki chicken and dressed with teriyaki dressing. It’s the perfect Monday or Tuesday night meal after a weekend of indulgent eating.

Yield: 4 servings Total time: 45 minutes

Pressure Cooker Pepper Steak

Strips of flat-iron steak and chunks of bell pepper and onions are seasoned with garlic, ginger, Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil, and cooked in the pressure cooker for homemade Chinese food on a weeknight.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings Total time: 50 minutes
Seafood

Volcano Salmon

This honey-soy salmon is prepared under the broiler, which gives it a blackened char that appeals to our volcano-obsessed preschooler.

Serve with Volcano Noodles, a rainbow salad that includes purplish black rice noodles, for a visually spectacular and delicious dinner. (Prepare the marinade and the dressing for the salad first – they’re similar, and you can prepare the veggies for the salad while the salmon marinates.)

Yield: 4 servings Total time: 40 minutes
Soups

Jamy’s Thai Chicken Soup (Chicken Khao Soi)

Poach chicken thighs in a broth of homemade curry paste, coconut milk, and chicken broth, add egg noodles and fish sauce, and top with onions, bean sprouts, cilantro stems, chili oil, and lime wedges.

Serve with an Austrian Grüner Veltliner.

Yield: 6 servings Total time: 1 1/2 hours

Guy serves this vegetable dish of cauliflower, carrots, green beans, and potatoes seasoned with black mustard seeds, garlic, ginger, turmeric, and chiles alongside basmati rice and chicken skewers.

Yield: 6 servings Total time: 30 minutes

Teriyaki Meatballs

The meat mixture from my mom’s teriyaki burgers is delicious formed into meatballs, browned, and then cooked in a teriyaki sauce. Serve with brown rice.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings Total time: 40 minutes

Asian Boneless Beef Short Ribs

These short ribs, seasoned with garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sherry, and scallions and cooked in the pressure cooker, are incredibly tender and flavorful.

Asian Noodle Salad

Nostalgia for a childhood favorite (Ramen noodles) and the new habit of cabbage-based salads for dinner has introduced this to our dinner rotation. Cilantro, bell peppers, and a vinaigrette of ginger, lime, and jalapeño keep the salad fresh.
