Specific Recipe Links

This is a running list of recipe links. Mostly, as I update it as I find new ones to try, but also because people keep asking me about my recipes. Unfortunately, I don’t really cook with recipes. Mostly, I use them for the techniques, but tend to modify them based on personal preferences and what ingredients I have around me. I have tried to note some of my modifications in each line item.

Have tried these:

Daikon Radish Cake 蘿蔔糕I use this mostly to get an idea of proportions. but will put my own “add-ins”.

I usually also add ginger to when I’m making the bean paste. And sometimes tangerine peel

Cumin Garlic Lamb Skewers – 羊肉串https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/05/spicy-lamb-skewers-chinese-street-food-recipe.html
I use the boneless leg of lamb of Costco because it it readily available. I do try and alternate the fattier outer pieces with the meatier pieces.
I also add minced fresh garlic, szechuan peppercorns, and black peppercorns.

Apple Cider donuts These are really good, but a candy thermometer is a must.

French Apple Cake
This is really yummy with other fruit as well. Sometimes I use cognac instead of rum.

Preferred enriched dough, for baked buns
I use the brioche dough recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Mostly bc it’s meant to be refrigerated overnight and I don’t have to do everything in one day.

Shaanxi Hot Oil Recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RayiXikKsC0 I only use 1/2 c of red chili flakes instead of the the 3/4c he calls for. I add more garlic and sesame seeds to make up the crunchy bits.

Korean Cinnamon Tea:

Ginger Snap Cranberry Lime Piehttps://keviniscooking.com/gingersnap-cranberry-lime-pie/
I only made the curd (filling). I only used about 3/4 – 1 cup of sugar. Taste it after adding the eggs and when still over the double boiler to determine if it needs more sugar. I also added an extra 1/4 c of lime juice and doubled the lime zest. I prefer tart.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

I zested and juiced an orange into the filling. Also added vanilla extract and five powder.
