A list of all the recipes Angie Hsing has tested.
Skillet Steak Peperonata
Wanna know how to stretch a single steak into supper for four without seeming skimpy? Your answer awaits.
Fresh Peas with Mint
Is there anything that screams spring more than lightly buttered peas with a wee bit of mint on top? We think not.
Open-Face Egg Salad Sandwich
We know. You already have an egg salad sandwich recipe. But trust us, it’s nothing like this one, which is whoppingly old school in taste, blissfully healthful in every other way.
Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes
These lovely latkes are crisp without, creamy within, and sweet throughout. Entirely appropriate for Hanukkah as well as a random Tuesday night…
Roasted Root Vegetables with Marcona Almonds
Yes, you’ve had roast vegetables. No, you haven’t had them like this, juxtaposed with nutty brown butter, the lilt of lemon, and the crunch of Marcona almonds.
Open Mushroom Lasagna
Elegance was never achieved with such ease. Simply stack cooked lasagna noodles with sautéed ‘shrooms and smother with a luxurious cream sauce. Everyday extravagance.
Ginger and Carrot Stir-Fry
There’s nothing wallflowerish about this stir-fry, not with its gingery zing of tongue-tingling, sinus-clearing, tummy-settling ginger. Nothing at all.
Congee ~ Jok Plaw
A simple, silken rice porridge that’s certain to soothe and salve the soul—especially those souls afflicted with a sore throat or a queasy tummy.
Fennel Baked in Cream
Fennel turns meltingly tender and oh so sweet when slowly, slowly, slowly braised in cream, cheese, and butter. One more reason to be enamored with the holidays.
Vietnamese Beef and Rice Noodle Salad
A jumble of tastes and textures and temperatures, this towering noodle number will jolt you to your senses in a manner that only classic Vietnamese cuisine can do.
Lemon and Thyme Risotto
A lilt of lemon and hints of thyme dance throughout this simple risotto. The best they’ve ever tasted.
Southern Shrimp and Grits
Our most requested recipe, this ridiculously rich dish takes its heat from andouille, its creamy comfort from grits smothered in cheese.
Raw Cranberry Sauce
This little make-ahead number is easy as can be, requires no coveted stovetop space before the big meal, and tastes, well, wow.
Baked Fish with Lemon Bread Crumbs
Quick, easy, healthful, spectacular in terms of taste, and exactly what you need these last couple of Fridays before Easter.
Endive Salad with Gorgonzola, Pine Nuts, and Honey
Mother Nature is a savvy, savvy hostess. We know this because endive makes the perfect platter-to-piehole vehicle for cheese.
Corn with Curried Yogurt Sauce
Butter is nice, but we have a hunch you may find this tangy, spicy, cooling drizzle of yogurt, honey, and curry to be just as swell.
Bruschetta with Tomato
Bruschetta rubbed with garlic and loaded with tomato are de rigeur summer fare. Pile heirloom tomatoes on the toast for a twist on the classic.
