This week’s Sunday Supper theme is all about the newly released cookbook by Steamy Kitchen: Healthy Asian Favorites. If you’re a foodie, you’re certainly aware of Jaden Hair and her incredible blog, Steamy Kitchen, which she started in 2007 to share recipes with family and friends. Well, her little blog has blossomed into an impressive empire which includes cookbooks, her own oil plus numerous television appearances. This latest cookbook is full of quick, flavorful and healthy recipes. So many look irresistible ..seared ahi tuna, seared scallop salad, Asian slaw with wasabi-soy dressing are a few I must make. I cooked up her Sake Steamed Mussels this past Friday…it was a perfect Lenten meal and ready in a matter of minutes. I sliced some shallots, minced garlic and grated some ginger, added them to some dry white wine and brought the aromatic liquid to a boil. My only tweak was a generous pinch of salt. I tossed in the mussels, and in 5 minutes, dinner was ready. A sprinkle of fresh basil finished the dish. Now who wouldn’t want to be served this stunning bowl of seafood? Well, maybe not my hubby….but after 27 years, I’ve learned to deal with his food idiosyncrasies.
And I’m thrilled to be heading to Orlando in May to Jaden’s Food Blog Forum. This is the ultimate food bloggers’ conference and I am honored to be one of 100 bloggers who will be in attendance. I will try to remember my camera (duh!) this time and share this fantastic event with you all. Let me tell you, Florida sounds pretty inviting right now!
