I’m all about the matchy-matchy

Get the three of us together on an idea….and ohhhh boy….we are trouble! Ree of The Pioneer Woman, Elise of Simply Recipes and I could not be more opposites in personalities and that’s exactly what makes us like Charlie’s Angels, minus the bikinis, guns and heels. But we do have one two things in common…a […]

Kickin’ Tequila Shrimp on Tasty Kitchen

I know you know my friend Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, right? Of course you know her! Ree one of my fav bloggers – she’s just as genuine, funny and gracious in person as she is on the blog. I’ve even spooned with her. I can’t believe that I haven’t mentioned Ree’s latest adventure to […]

Friday Favorites

Steamy Kitchen Friday Favorites Compiled by Jess Daniel, Steamy Kitchen intern 1) This week I had some old friends come visit. After spending some time on the requisite farm-y tasks: pulling carrots, communing with chickens, picking blackberries for jam, they convinced me to leave my island for a day to venture out into the big […]

Summer Shack’s Famous Pan Roasted Lobster

Lobster is one of those foods that are too damn expensive. Where I live, a lobster is around $18.99 per pound, which is ridiculous for the amount of food you actually get from a single lobster! However, if you’re calculating cost based on how LONG it takes to eat and savor the food item, then […]

Fresh Pear and Shrimp Stir Fry

Every time I’m back in Hong Kong, I head straight for a good dim sum restaurant. If you haven’t had dim sum before, it’s as close to competitive eating as I’ve ever experienced.

Despite being smack dab in the middle of Florida, I was floored by the fresh sushi at Mount Dora Sushi. Owner Janet Craig, who is half-Japanese runs this restaurant with her family. It’s one of the most popular dining […]

Steamy Kitchen on ABC News Now!

Well, this was certainly a new experience for me – my first interview on national television! Earlier this week, I got to be on a live interview with Meg Oliver of ABC News Now. I had to juggle our schedule a bit to make it fit – I was already scheduled to be in Boston […]
