The last thing you want to do on a bright summer day is spend an hour indoors cooking in a hot kitchen. That's why we make it our job to equip you with the tools you need to whip up delicious meals in minutes. One of our all-time favorite summer salad recipes is our refreshing Thai peanut salad. This salad is light enough for a hot summer day, yet it is filling and packed with protein.
Spring is a rejuvenating time of year for foodies. The turn of the season brings refreshing recipes full of first-of-the-season produce. This spring we put on our creative chef hats to develop this line-up of fun Easter dinner ideas. We ditched the ham and hard-boiled eggs for a more exciting - and festive - spread. These novel Easter foods will quickly become new family favorites.
Are you looking to explore Eastern-style cooking? You may have the basics down, like the right way to prepare stir fry and use a wok, but what about how to include popular Asian spices, flavorings and other ingredients in your meals? These ingredients can be intimidating to use if you've never prepared Asian cuisine, but with a little preparation they will be easy to include in your next Asian dish.
Who doesn't love a good theme? Since cuisine and ingredients from different cultures have become more accessible all over the world, themed dinner nights like Italian Night, Taco Night and (our favorite) Asian Night have also become more popular.
Hosting a party for the big football game can make you feel like a football player yourself. As you dash to clean the house, you're scrambling to finish the typical chili-and-cornbread football party spread. In an attempt to add some novelty to the evening, you decide to tackle a new chili recipe you saw online. Kicking yourself for not prepping earlier, you make a pass on the football-shaped cheese platter. By kickoff time, you are already ready for a water break.
The Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year) is the biggest holiday of the year in China. We are celebrating by giving away a FREE copy of our Asian Dinner Party Planner to Stir It Up Club members.
