Just One Cookbook restaurant review - Shadowbrook restaurant in Capitola features a cable car ride and beautiful landscaped garden and greenery.
I am definitely addicted to good bread and whenever I have great soup or broth, I love dipping pieces of bread and savoring every last drop of the soup. It's still cold in San Francisco in June this year so I want to share a warm comfort recipe before summer comes along. This bouillabaisse is not difficult to prepare but absolutely delish!
As part of our stay-cation, we dined at Navio for Sunday brunch. It was an amazing experience, the food, the service, and the atmosphere were all perfect. If you are ever in the San Francisco area and want the perfect brunch, don't forget Navio.
Japanese food has a lot of Chinese influence and we often cook "our" version of Chinese food at home. Pepper steak is no exception. During my first year of marriage, my Taiwanese American husband was shocked to see bamboo shoot in my Pepper Steak. Well, bamboo shoot is a typical ingredient in our version of Pepper Steak. This time I added potatoes because I thought the sauce would go well with potatoes. My husband told me, "you are supposed to put bamboo shoot, not potatoes." I told him that's the Japanese version of Pepper Steak, but he didn't believe me until I Googled original Pepper Steak recipe. After being married for 6 years his Chinese taste buds are slowly adapting to the Japanese-Chinese food taste. Well, whatever ingredients you might try, you can cook this dish very fast. Just chop everything before you stir fry and cook quickly over high heat. Before you realize, you are already working on your second bowl of rice. Yum!
