Threw it down in the kitchen! My favorite food is crabs. My momma told me when I was in her belly, one of her favorite cravings was crabs. She says that's why I love it so much. Being that I'm from Maryland(home of the crabcakes) it was a match made in heaven. So when I was old enough, the first thing I always wanted to learn to make was crabcakes. Definitely not hard to make, but finding the perfect accessories(ingredients) to your ride(crab meat) is what make a crabcakes so special. Letting the crab shine while the others compliment it through out.
So in mine, wanted to make two different kind. One with jumbo lump crab(holy grail) and the other just the meat from the fin(wanted to play around with ingredients that I usually don't use). I tend to keep it simple. The lump has scallions, egg, bit of mayo, mustard, worcestershire, old bay and my binding combo. The fin one I added in bell pepper, hot sauce n saltine crackers. Threw in crackers in because it needed more binder. I put in a fry pan to get that nice crispy bottom n finish it off in the oven. Key to a amazing crab cake is to not overmix n packing it too tightly. Gotta let it breathe. You hear that ladies, gotta let your guys breathe. That space lol.
Of course to every entree you need your vegetables n starch. I made some lemon garlic asparagus n home fries. Yeah I guess I wants to breakfast flare in my dinner lol. So what was the 1st dish you ever made?

Happy People Day! During our 2 week long celebration we'll have special days dedicated to something. Today we celebrate people day. Where it is everyone's birthday today. During Chinese New Year, I really appreciate the festivities that bring my family together. Everything from family dinners to family luncheon to gambling. Everyone's spirits are up. Positive energy and jus all around joy.
My aunt was bossing today and cooked up some homemade Wonton Noodle Soup. Made everything from the broth to the wontons. The wontons consist of shrimp and ground pork. There's nothing more soothing n fulfilling than a hot noodle soup dish on a cold cold night. The broth is made from pork bones giving it that rich but subtle flavor. Imagine biting into that wonton with the juices bursting all over your mouth(no pun). One word to describe this: Satisfying.
Even though not everyone celebrates Chinese New Years, but I hope this bring positive vibes to you n your family. Remember to enjoy the moments with your fam, no matter how big or small it is. Nothing is more important than your Family.

Happy Lunar/Chinese New Years! As a tradition Every New Years the family will go out for Dim Sum(Chinese Tapas). The great thing about dim sum is that you can try so much food without getting full that quickly. And it's inexpensive too! One of my favorite dim sum dish is Phoenix Claws(braised chicken feet). I know I know, some of y'all may think "eww why would I eat chicken feet, it's disgusting." For those of you, there's nothing disgusting about it. There's no off putting taste to it. Matter of fact if you like eating pork skin or chicken skin, this is up your alley.

Making this dish takes quite some time but well worth it. The chicken feet is first fried with malt sugar to break down all that cartilage, so the marinade will be absorb in. Then it is boiled in a mixture of ginger, star anise n parsley root. After that it is steamed in a sweet/spicy/umami rich marinade(black bean sauce, chili, white pepper, sugar, soy, oyster). The chicken feet comes out golden red(Phoenix name). What shines about this dish is the feet soaking up all that marinade. When I mean this marinade is to drool for, I mean it. If I closed your eyes and feed you some, you'll be 😍. When you eat it, you'll get that lovely soft n chewy skin n cartilage. The marinade will have your brain sending signals to your taste buds wanting for more. The umami flavor is like that. Look I get it, it looks intimidating at first glance. But just give it a try and don't be no little biatch. If you try and don't like it, fine. But don't knock it til try it.

DT. South African/Portuguese Food. We have a half chicken grilled on a open fiyah! With some Portuguese rice and Macho(Man Randy Savage) Peas. My choice of sauce? That Lemon Herb Sauce. So lemony makes your mouth pucker.

Holy Moly Cannoli! Been stuck in the house from this damn blizzard. Cabin fever definitely kicked in. What's better than a made to order Cannoli for this? Nothing. Fried crispy pastry dough with creamy smooth ricotta filling. Not too overly sweet. Just right. Just imagine biting into it with the fried pastry dough breaking, bits n pieces flying every where. Tongue touch that smooth ricotta n it's just ova! Make your tongue smooth like chapsticking your lips.

DT. Vietnamese Food. Bun Dat Biet ~ vermicelli noodles with grilled pork, shrimp, crispy spring roll n shredded pork. Dish is so refreshing. The noodles are chill along with the bean sprouts n pickled veggies. Counter plays the grilled pork n shrimp very well. Pour some fish sauce over it and you gots the perfect bowl.

The great thing about Vietnamese dishes for 1, is the value you pay for it. This dish is $10(some places you'll find it cheaper) and you'll get a lot of food. You'll know it's fresh n delicious. Simple food but it hits the stomach goooood.

#NYC Takeover Continues. I'm a fan of Eddie Huang. so when I knew I was heading to the city, had to check out his spot. Chairman Bao from Bao Haus. What's we got is a Braised Pork Belly Bao served with Haus Relish(pickled cabbage), Taiwanese Red Sugar, crushed peanuts n cilantro. All served on a soft Bao.

Small but this packs some flavors. The pork belly is perfectly braised until melt in your mouth tenderness. The belly has a nice sweet touch to it. The pickled cabbage is the wingman to the red sugar n pork. Them nuts adds the crunch and the lantro brights it up. All in all it was πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

So it's like 15 degrees outside. and I'm craving for ice cream. I know I'm not the only one who likes to eats ice cream when it's cold out.

Cereal Milk Soft Serve with caramelized corn flakes. So one of the best parts of eating cereal is drinking the milk after the cereal is gone. All the sugary goodness from the cereal is all released in the milk. So this soft serve is great if you like cereal milk. Not too sweet just right. The caramelized corn flakes gives the soft serve a sweet salty crunch. So if you're tired of the same ol vanilla chocolate soft soft. Try this. You don't have to go to NY to get this as they just opened a DC location not too long ago. #nyc

DT. Chinese Food. Homemade Ginger Scallion Lobster. Staple Food in Chinese Cuisine. If you attend a Chinese Banquet, more than likely this will be one of the star dishes. The combination of the ginger n scallion is πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ. Best part of the lobster? The end of the tail and the head.
