Favorites of 2015 and Welcome to 2016!

Bonne Annee! And welcome to 2016! Last year had lots of ups and downs for me but the blog was one of my most favorite parts of the year and these were my favorite recipes to make.

Mei fun noodles made several appearances on our dinner table because they are muy fun! Here they are with ahi tuna, but I've made them as a side dish or with seared tofu. I think they'd be fantastic with seared scallops or pan fried prawns as well.

When I first began cooking Indian food for my beau he was appreciative but he finally said, "there's this dish that is muslim in origin...." And that sent me on a google search and sure enough I found gold! Massaman Curry is one of my favorite Indian dishes and really very simple to make.

Herb Crusted Tofu Cutlets are my answer to healthy junk food that happens quick. And it's breaded, I mean, really, what's not to love! You can go gourmet with a mustard sauce as I do here or just use BBQ sauce or Ranch dressing.

Sauteed Swiss Chard sounds so boring compared to Palakoora Vepadu, which is Indian spiced sauteed greens that are guaranteed to wow.

Faux meat bought at the store is usually full of gluten or soy and other stuff you can't pronounce, so I cobbled together this recipe for Vegetarian Breakfast Sausage which turned out really delicious and is gluten free to boot!

When I'm trying to get more vegetables into our brunch meals these Japaneses Vegetable Pancakes are my go to dish.

When I wanted to make a special brunch for father's day my beau told me his secret recipe for Gr'eggs' Orsini and I made this fun dish.

Larb may be something you're familiar with as a fun Thai dish so I vegetarianized and Hoisin Tofu Lettuce Cups became a hit with adults and kids alike.

Fish cakes were never high on my radar to make but once I searched out the best and found these Spectacular Fish Cakes, we were hooked. Potatoes mashed a little and added to fish blanched in cream with an out of this world tartar sauce.

Garam Masala Salmon with Mango Salsa is as delightful as it sounds. Make it and wow folks with this quick and easy gourmet meal.
