So I tried to think of what to make for my first recipe post.  I failed.  One friend suggested posting my favourite recipe, another suggested something I’d never tried.  Either way, I haven’t cooked since (unless frozen pizza counts).

A food/recipe blog is a commitment right? So here’s how I’ll proceed: wedding style.

Something old: you’re getting a family recipe and its gonna be simple.  Soy Sauce  Marinated Cucumber Salad.

Something new: a dish from one of my favourite blogs featuring my beloved eggplant. Makhouda D’Aubergine (recipe from The Traveler’s Lunchbox)

Something borrowed: Anona’s Sour Cream Lemon Pie from a wonderful family friend who my parents and I adore.

Something blue: thoughts were blueberries (too obvious), bluefin tuna (too expensive), blue (as in RARE because I don’t have the heart to ruin good meat) beef tenderloin (too good to not).  So Thai Beef Salad with Peanut-Cilantro Dressing it is, another family favourite.
