Bulgogi Glazed Salmon with Goguma Puree (and Mustard Greens)

This is my first Korean fusion recipe of SEASON 4 and it’s not even my recipe!  That’s right…I got a mini break by having someone else wrack their brain for our show.  This is another collaboration with our friend Chef James and it’s funny how we actually posted his last collab video around the same time last year!  Remember his Creme Brulee for Two Recipe for Valentine’s Day?

Dduk Guk (Korean Rice Cake Soup – 떡국)

I would say that Dduk Guk is one of those dishes that I take for granted.  I’ve eaten it for New Years Day almost every year for my entire life!  It’s a Korean tradition, and to me, it just doesn’t feel like the new year without it.  Usually to save time, it’s made with a simple anchovy broth that takes only minutes to make.  But on New Years Day, it’s more of a special thing, so it’s usually cooked the real deal way… with a savory beef broth that has been simmering for hours.

Banh Mi Hot Dogs

It’s truly amazing what a few simple touches can do to ordinary hot dogs.  This is almost another “non-recipe,” but it’s too good not to share.  If you want to attempt something a little different for the 4th of July, you’ve gotta try making these Banh Mi Hot Dogs.  It all began with some leftover ingredients from my Shrimp and Avocado Summer Rolls.  I don’t like waste so I had to put those ingredients to good use.

Creme Brulee for Two

I think it’s pretty cool that our friend Chef James Park agreed to collaborate with us in a video and provide his scrumptious recipe for Creme Brulee.  He’s used to making this in a professional kitchen setting only, but was nice enough to cut down the recipe so that it would be appropriate for two people…just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Pita Chips with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I used to cater small parties, and almost every single time, I would make homemade pita chips with roasted red pepper hummus.  It’s a great snack item to have on the table because the ingredients are fresh and wholesome, so you don’t have to feel guilty about stuffing your face.  In fact, I got used to watching guests chatting away while hovering around this bowl of chips and dip.

Pub Style Sliders (Game Day Bites)

Much to Joe’s disappointment, I’m not a sports fan….at all…GASP!  Yeah, sorry if we can’t be friends now.  But I do like the Super Bowl, because I enjoy the Halftime show, the entertaining commercials, and all the game day munchies!  It’s also a great excuse to gather with friends, kick back, and just hang out together.  I mean, I usually end up huddled up in the kitchen somewhere with the other non-game watching people, but that’s besides the point!
