Orange Truffle Salad

The beauty of this dressing is you don't see any dressing. A clear dressing is something different, where you see the beauty of each food through a transparent glossy glaze. What makes this recipe luxurious is the Truffle Oil. If you can find a reasonable truffle oil, it's worth it. It can last a long, long time in many different recipes. The freshness of the orange juice, the richness of the truffle oil, the sensuality of the orange slices, makes this salad come together in one explosive taste sensation!

Butter Lettuce - 1 head
Truffle Oil - 1 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Garlic Salt - 1 tsp
Orange - 2 sectioned
Orange Juice - 3 tbsp
BBQ Seasoning - 1/4 tsp
Candied (Glazed) pecans - 2 tbsp (You can buy this in a store, or make homemade)

Mix all ingredients together

Plate it, eat it, and you're in heaven!

It's Good to Go Green

I don't know how brussel sprouts got their bad reputation. I love brussel sprouts. Make them like this recipe for your loved ones, and you'll change brussel sprout's reputation, one person at a time.

Dried shrimps - 1 tbsp
Brussel sprouts - 3 cups julienned, shredded or chopped
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Curry powder (optional) 1 tsp


  • Heat the oil on medium heat

  • Put the shrimp in (You might have to go to an asian market to get this, BUT GO! You'll find so many things - get some fish sauce, oyster sauce, hot sauce, greens, live seafood. You'll find a world of new tastes for a great price)

  • Fry the shrimp for a few seconds until it's brown

  • Add the brussel sprouts and stirfry until some is brown, for that great caramelized taste

  • Add salt and curry powder (if you'd like a little kick)

  • Stirfry again for another few seconds until well mixed

Serve with some rice, and brussel sprouts might become your new favorite veggie dish.

Queer Dada

It's really called Kueh Dada, but this was for dessert at a gay party, so the name stuck. It's a Malaysian dessert, the place where I'm from, so it was fun introducing it to my friends. It's sweet and coconutty, so if you like both of those, you'll love this.

To Come
