I had such a busy and awesome Memorial Day weekend.  I barely had any time to cook.  But I somehow managed to squeeze in a super duper easy-peezy recipe.  It’s super quick, super yummy, and just plain super all around!
Usually, when Summer starts to roll around, I start to cook less.  I’m not sure why either.  I actually dislike hot weather immensely, it makes me feel lethargic and just all-around LAZY.  And this Summer is going to be a crazy one cause I’m going to start my hardcore wedding diet and workout regime!  I won’t be able to cook all the yummy stuff I love to cook and gobble them down like I usually do.  All for the sake of fitting into my wedding dress later this year. Grrrrr………

Have you ever had one of those days when you just totally do NOT want to cook?  Or you’re just so busy, or you’re running late and can’t get home in time to make a meal for your family?  I’m sure you all have.  And usually when that happens, we either run to grab quick take-out, or you somehow talk your husband or boyfriend to cook instead.  Well, this recipe is FOR THE BOYS!  It’s super easy, quick and fool-proof.  Three main ingredients only.  And your man can pat himself on the back and boast that he made a great meal with no help at all!  (Unless your man is a great chef already and knows his way around the kitchen.)

It’s that time of year again!  Where the green beer flows abundant and the Leprechauns come out and play.  And you know what these wee folks do?  They collect the exuberant amounts of money that you spend on beer, lagers, and Guiness to fill their pot of gold, that’s what!

In preparation for the Chinese New Year that’s coming up this week on February 4th, 2011, I have decided to make some Taiwanese Niu Row Mein (Taiwanese Beef & Noodles).  This will be our fifth recipe for the International Pressure Cooking theme.

 

I am Chinese.  Born in Taiwan, but raised in the U.S.  And with the new Lunar year starting this week, there’s going to be lots of cooking, eating, cleaning and cooking some more.  Although Beef & Noodles aren’t really considered a traditional New Years dish, it’s still got noodles in it, and noodles signify longevity in the Chinese culture.  Which means, no cutting of the noodles when you eat it, or else it will cut your life short.  Which also means, when you see Chinese people eating noodles, there’s always a lot of noisy slurping.  See, now it all makes sense!  Okay, that’s all just silly superstition anyway.  To learn more about the Chinese New Year and the special foods that are prepared and the history, click here.

Sooooo………this post is sort of unrelated to my whole International Pressure Cooking Adventure.  I just got excited and wanted to share and post about it.  So it’s kind of an impromptu post.
I just recently got introduced to Pepper Jelly.  Some of you may be like me and don’t have a clue what Pepper Jelly is.  Well, that’s what Google is for!  Just kidding!  But I’m sure there are lots of people who already know what it is and use it regularly.  So bare with us poor folks who have been deprived for so long.

Our first adventure into the wonderful world of International Pressure Cooking will be the lovely country of Russia.  And one of the most popular and well known dishes from Russia is the delicious hot soup called Borscht.  For a more detail and in depth look at the origins of Borscht, click here.

My boyfriend is Russian.  Born in Moscow and immigrated to the U.S. when he was 3 years old.  He was raised by his grandparents in Los Angeles in a small Russian community.  So he was raised eating all kinds of wonderful Russian home-cooked meals made by his Busichka (Grandmother).  I won’t even bother trying to compete with her cooking because I will never win.  I just take the recipes she provides and tweak them so it becomes my own version.  And if my boyfriend doesn’t like it, he can go hungry!  HAHA Just kidding…..or am I really?
