My Picks on Tastespotting


+ Learn how to make your own no-knead European peasant bread. Pete of used a recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. You may recall that I reviewed the book. By the way, the blog for the book is called Artisan Bread in five.

+ For breakfast, try this Bread pudding baked in a muffin tin from James Starmer


+ For a quick lunch, opt for healthy salad like the Butterbeans with sweet chili & herbs salad from A Spoonful of Sugar. You can have a slice of the European bread with it.

+ For a simple dinner, my friend Quynh of QlinArt shares her recipe for a moist and fluffy steamed omelet with pork, mushrooms and fresh dill. It sounds delicious. This dish takes 30 minutes from prepping the ingredients to the table. Perfect on a weekday!

More Vietnamese Recipes

Quynh told me her pork steamed omelet is a traditional Vietnamese family dish. This is not something you will find at a restaurant.

I encourage you to read QlinArt. She is a talented photographer and cook. QlinArt is about easy to make and tasty Vietnamese recipes. Last week, she published her delicious Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dip (Nuoc Mam). You can keep the sauce up to 3 weeks if stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Well, I just tried the basic recipe in the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes and it is DELICIOUS! and such a no brainer. So easy to make in so little time. If you haven’t got the book yet, run to the store, it is a well-worth investment. 🙂
