Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Rating: 4.5 stars 153
A Thai sweet chili sauce gives this pork cabbage stir-fry dish a sweet and spicy flavor that my kids love. You can adjust the heat level by adding more or less sauce or adding additional red pepper flakes if you like it hot.

Summertime Crab Slaw with Napa Cabbage

This cool and refreshing salad is a treat for the hot days of summer. Serve with red wine vinaigrette or dressing of choice.

Korean Kimchi

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
My mother and I made this a tradition after our cousin taught us how to make it. This authentic dish is served over rice with every meal in Korea. This can be altered for a spicier version. Use a glass container and wax paper as this will discolor plastic and rust metal.

Traditional Kimchi

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
If you love authentic Korean cuisine, you'll want to try your hand at creating your own kimchi; it's not as complicated or time-consuming as you might think. Kimchi is a fermented dish, the more it ages the better it tastes, likewise with the sugar. Use a persimmon in place of the apple, if you prefer. If you want to serve it the very next day, don't refrigerate.

An excellent way to use up that leftover cabbage from the garden.

"Million Dollar" Chinese Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
This recipe is always a hit...with kids too! I used to call it my 'Million Dollar Salad' because buying the sesame seeds was so expensive. Now I buy the sesame seeds in bulk at a health food store and it's much more affordable.
