Cindy's Thai Hot and Sour Soup

Rating: Unrated
This is very good! It's worth it going to the Thai market to get the extra ingredients. I used to order this at a restaurant and I came home and come up with my own version of it. Everyone loves it that tries it. A lot of ingredients but very easy to make. Serve over rice!

Spicy Cuban Mojo Chicken with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Rating: Unrated
Thanks to Mrs. Sequilla, a good friend's mom down in Little Havana, South Florida! She shared this recipe that was her grandmother's favorite. Everytime I make it someone asks for the recipe.

Balinese Chicken Wings

Rating: Unrated
On a recent trip to Bali, my Balinese stepmother, Putu, let me help her prepare chicken - and I furiously committed her 'non-recipe' to memory to bring home. She has a big mortar and pestle for this kind of thing; I don't, so I end up using both sides of my meat mallet; you just want to get the ingredients well combined and at least somewhat reduced in mass. And since they're baked, not deep-fried, they're a (relatively) healthy pile of wings! I particularly like them with roasted sweet potatoes.

Chinese Peppered Green Beans

Rating: Unrated
Bright, crisp and spicy with crushed green peppercorns, fresh red chile pepper and garlic, these green beans will add lots of flavor and color to your meal. If you can't find Chinese yardlong or 'snake' beans, then regular green beans will do just fine.
