World Cuisine: Great Recipes from Around the World (and Texas)

Have a grocery and gourmet website, specializes in herb and spices.  Often find gems around the web that are reshared in my business pages, Google+ and Facebook.

 

Though I am a contributor, my articles for HUBPages.com are not food-related but the Food and Cooking section of this website is loaded!!  So I shared some links here too.  Enjoy!




A handy reference list. Descriptive list of the different and popular dishes from the Philippines that every Filipino family have enjoyed cooking and serving on their dinner table.
A Taste of the Caribbean: Make Jamaican Patties for Supper!  This is a great recipe for authentic tasting Jamaican Patties; delicious golden pastry filled with curried beef and spices.
Recipes from the indigenous peoples of French Polynesia and their Marquesas Islands.
Brawn Loaf, Christmas Cake, Wattelseed Pavlova …



Biltong – A cured meat that originated from South Africa and often compared to the American jerky.
East African cuisine is the food of countries such as Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda.

Greek Tzatziki is a great way to use cucumbers!
People often mix up oriental cuisines – they mix up Korean food with Chinese and Japanese. In reality, even though the Korean cuisine is partly influenced by Chinese and Japanese cooking, Korean food also has its very own unique taste and cooking techniques.

In my hub titled 5 Asian Dishes You Can Make at Home (link below), I mentioned my love for the beef kimbap (sometimes also called kimbob). A kimbap is basically the Korean version of the Sushi. It is a rice roll with some fillings wrapped in nori or dried seaweed wrap.

When in Texas, eat like a Texan. Especially enjoy some of the fusion cuisine, like Tex-Mex. (Fusion cuisine refers to a style of food that combines elements of different cuisines.)

Foodie Friday : Candied Jalapeño Peppers

Cutting it close.  Trying to get this foodie Friday post published before midnight.  Sorry.  But the inspiration came to me late in the day as I was driving to pick up my daughter from high school.  This foodie Friday's topic is:

Candied Jalapeño Peppers.

If you're from Texas you probably already know about them.  But I'm what they call a "Texas import".  That means I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could! 😜

Love jalapeños.  Love them with the seeds!!!  The hotter the better!  Knew they came fresh or pickled.  Never knew they came sweet too!  You can buy them in the local grocery stores (here in Austin, Texas) or you can make them.  The recipe is easy.  Sharing some links below.

Here's a fun food fact.

Candied Jalapeño Peppers are also called "cowboy candy".

There aren't words that exist to describe how addictive these little savoury, sweet, spicy, crunchy, garlicky pickled jalapeno rounds are. Put them on sandwiches, tacos, rice or bake them into cornbread. You'll need more and more!



Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers

Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers

Serve something a little different for your Easter spread this year: Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers. Sriracha spices up these deviled eggs and the candied jalapeno peppers give it a sweet/spicy note transforming the ordinary into extraordinary! Make it even more special and serve them on this gorgeous Wilton Armetale Egg Tray from their Flutes & Pearls Collection.

If you like pepper jelly served over cream cheese on crackers, you will love Cowboy Candy. The sugary sweet syrup/brine is the perfect compliment to the heat of the jalapenos. When my friend, Diane, at Canning and Cooking at Home made these, I knew I wanted to try it for myself.
