I am not a big fan of salads, but I've discovered I love beef salads. They're too delicious to resist, especially this Vietnamese one called Shaking Beef. The slightly sweet and super juicy cubes of beef on top of the crispy, crunchy bed of lettuce creates a refreshingly savory meal. Add any other veggies of your choice to create a complete salad. I used what was in my fridge to make a simple salad of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. In my opinion, thinly sliced onions taste the best in salads. =) Give this quick and easy recipe a try this...

Click here to buy. Rating: I have to admit, I've never had American rice crackers until I was an adult. What was my reaction to it? "Why is it so bland? I know! It just needs a thick layer of peanut butter and jelly..." American rice crackers tasted very different from the rice snacks my mother had always bought for us at the Asian markets.

Our subscribers replied back with disappointment, and we felt the looming, dark cloud hanging over their heads as we ended 2015.

Lately, I've been craving Kkanpung Shrimp. It's battered shrimp that's fried and then smothered in a thick, sticky, sweet sauce. It's a dish that's served only at Korean-Chinese restaurants. I've tried ordering it at Chinese restaurants, but their version can never satisfy my craving. I like to order a bowl of Jajang Myun (noodles in black bean sauce) with the Kkanpung Shrimp, and, ohhhh yeah, I always leave with a happy tummy!
