Beef Stifado in the Slow Cooker

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
Stifado is a Greek beef stew and my all-time favorite Greek dish. Chunks of tender beef are cooked with shallots in a rich aromatic tomato sauce. Serve with boiled rice and a good supply of crusty bread to mop up the rich sauce!

Lazy Pork Dumplings

Rating: 5 stars 28
While the filling and dough are relatively straightforward, it's usually the shaping of dumplings that takes a while. Here I've come up with a much quicker, more casual assembly method that works whether you boil, steam, or fry them. Served in a vinegary broth, however, they mimic the experience of soup dumplings, which are typically served with vinegar to balance that gush of rich, meaty juices you get when you bite in.

Steamed Barbecue Pork Buns

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
You don't need much experience at all to make beautiful barbecue pork buns, aka. char siu bao. Instead of that mysterious, gelatinous red sauce that Chinese restaurants use, I filled these buns with regular barbecue pork for a more savory version. Regardless of what filling you choose, I hope this helps shape your technique.

Fruity 3-Step Acai Bowl - Healthy "ICE-cream!"

Quick and Easy Cheesecake Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
This recipe was handwritten on the inside cover of a recipe book given to me as a wedding gift in 1968. It's a pie that makes it's own crust. It can be covered with your favorite fruit pie filling or served with your favorite fruit topping. It's an easy recipe for any new cook and a long standing favorite of mine.

Thai-Dipped Beef Tri Tip

Rating: 5 stars 28
I enjoy beef satay way more than I do skewering small pieces of beef. Besides, I've never made satay, and not stuck a bamboo skewer into my finger at some point in the process. Not only did this involve less labor, but you can cook this in any number of ways.

Healthy Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

Rating: 4.5 stars 73
A quick recipe I thought up while trying to decide what to eat for breakfast. Great if you are trying to figure out what to do with those blueberries in the fridge or freezer! Also great on-the-go! Delicious and includes many foods that are a great way to start your day! Many of the ingredients, except for the blueberries and yogurt, are optional and vary depending on your own taste. I love cinnamon and a thick, super-cold smoothie. This recipe is super versatile, and you can change it depending on dietary needs or personal preference. Have fun with it!
