Quick Chicken Pho

A few years ago, I'd never even heard of pho, let alone tasted it. Now, giant bowls of this traditional Vietnamese noodle soup are a regular meal in our house.

There are three things I can thank for this change: 1) Moving to a part of the country where pho restaurants are as common as pizza joints. 2) Several months of gluten-free eating last year due to a health issue. 3) Meeting and becoming friends with Vietnamese cooking expert Andrea Nguyen.

Andrea has now published a new book entirely devoted to — what else?! — pho, and I'd like to share with you her recipe for Quick Chicken Pho.

This recipe is a great introduction to pho if you've never had it before. And for pho addicts like myself, it's a good one to have around when a pho-craving strikes.

Omelette in a Mug

Friends, I have a new favorite way to cook eggs—in a mug, in a microwave.

No kidding. For reals!

Why??? Well first, it takes only a couple minutes to make, and clean-up is easy.

Second, while so many microwave mug recipes result in a poor substitute for something properly cooked, a microwaved mug omelette is surprisingly tender and delicious.

Third, when I'm trying to eat light, this way of cooking eggs cuts down substantially on added fat. It just uses a quick spray of cooking oil (or a wipe of olive oil) on the inside of the mug. (For those of you who count calories, I counted 200 in this recipe, your analysis may vary.)

Blood Orange French 75 Cocktail

Valentine's Day just begs to be celebrated with something red and bubbly, right?

Enter one of my favorite cocktails—the classic French 75—but instead of using lemon juice, we infuse the drink with something to make it brilliant pinkish red—blood orange.

So pretty! And just as lovely to drink as the original, if not more so.

Vegan Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pudding Cups

This quick, easy chocolate pudding can be thrown together in less than 10 minutes, and it's so rich and creamy you'd never guess it was dairy-free!

The secret is using avocados. You won't really taste the avocado in the finished pudding, but it helps give it a thick and creamy consistency.

Brazilian Salmon Stew (Moqueca)

One of the dishes Northern Brazil is known for is their "Moqueca", a delicious savory fish stew made with a local white fish, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and coconut milk.

Several years ago a Brazilian friend of mine introduced to me a salmon version of this stew she had improvised, given that the typical Brazilian fish used for moqueca isn't found around here.
