Kung Pao Beef: How To Make Delicious Chinese Food At Home

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

In my parent’s house, Chinese food is virtually synonymous with “leftovers.” My family has a habit of ordering far too much takeout and storing it in the fridge for days in little paper boxes. They respect Chinese food, viewing it as delicious the first time around, but for them, ordering Chinese is as much about convenience as it is taste. They love the fact that they can enjoy three, four, or even five meals by ordering a single one by putting kung pow beef over rice or reheating chow mein.

Bonito Sushi: A Seasonal Treat 

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

Sushi is a dish that I hesitated to try for a long time because it contained raw fish, but then I came to realize that not all sushi is made with raw fish. As I began to broaden my horizons and experience this Japanese treat, I began branching out and trying new types of sushi. One of my favorite types of sushi to eat is bonito sushi

Cutco Knives Review: Are They Worth It?

Written by Peter Allen on . Posted in Cutlery

Cutco has a fairly unique business model. Instead of relying on smart pricing, good advertising, and great web presence, it uses a direct marketing approach. Cutco hires many salespeople, mostly college students, to visit their friends and family members and demonstrate how good their knives are in-person. The power of these demonstrations is enough to drive sales, even with the high price-tag on Cutco knives.

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

Sushi is a pretty hot topic in America these days. While it’s easier than ever to find a high-quality sushi joint near your home, it’s not necessarily easy to pick up the traditional ingredients you need to make sushi yourself. Kampyo is one of these hard-to-find sushi fillings that’s often talked about in traditional recipes for futomaki sushi.

Best Potato Vodka – Top 10 List of the World’s Finest Vodka Brands

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in drink

Haters love to hate. When it comes to vodka, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the same ignorant schtick. “It’s all the same,” people will say. “It just tastes like alcohol.” While vodka does bear the taste of strong spirit, there’s a lot of complex, subtle flavors that you can find in a glass (or a martini or a shot) of a fine vodka. With the cheap stuff, you’re missing out on quite a lot. 

Torisashi – One of Japan’s Most Unique Culinary Experiences

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

When you’re ready to try some of the most exotic foods on the planet, there’s no substitute for nihon ryori, also known as Japanese cuisine. Everyone’s familiar with old staples like fugu fish, traditional sushi, and natto, but have you ever thought to try torisashi? As a person that loves Japanese cooking and who has studied the language and the culture for years, until recently, I had never tried this uniquely Japanese dish, but now that I have, I realize that I didn’t know what I was missing.

Circulon Symmetry Hard Anodized Nonstick 11-Piece Cookware Set Review: Timeless Classic Or Modern Trash?

Written by Peter Allen on . Posted in Cookware

When it comes to affordable non-stick cookware, Circulon is one of my favorite brands. When it comes to construction, quality, and pricing, they know their stuff. They might not be a clear market leader, but they’re certainly competitive with other top brands. Their solid warranty programs and the multitude of options available help ensure that you can find the perfect hard anodized set that will last for years in your kitchen.
