【Spanish Tapa】Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimps)

By popular demand, I’m posting my Gambas al Ajillo recipe, requested by all those who have seen my post on the Spanish dinner on my Facebook Fan Page. It’s quick, delicious and definitely a crowd-pleaser.  Gambas al Ajillo is the Spanish for “shrimps with garlic”.  It’s a very popular tapa you can almost find on the menu in any Spanish restaurant.  Mr. Bear loves this a lot, so it has become one of my go-to recipes when I don’t have too much time to cook.  Goes really well with a slice of baguette, or you can toss it with your favourite pasta to make it into an oil-based pasta dish.

Steak Tartare

Steak Tartare often receives very polar opinion.  Some people, like Mr. Bear and I, just absolutely love it while some others are simply disgusted by the thought of raw meat. I guess as Asians, we grew up eating sushi and all kinds of weird stuff so we never find eating raw meat a problem.

【Meatless Tuesday】 Chilled Avocado Soup

A couple weeks ago I came across Meg’s blog post about Meatless Monday. It is a movement started in the US to promote a healthier and more environmentally-friendly diet by skipping meat on Mondays.  I thought it was a very neat idea, but the only tiny issue is that I usually have late Monday evening meetings at work, so I don’t usually cook at home and I find it difficult to cut out meat completely when you eat out.  Therefore, at our little Bear home, we decided to do Meatless Tuesday instead and the first Tuesday in June sounds like a perfect day to start!

Triple Deviled Eggs

Firstly I have to apologize that I have been keeping a lot of your waiting for recipes that I've promised to post.  It's been more than six months since my last post and during this time, I haven't stopped cooking, so I've actually have this huge blogging backlog that I've been meaning to clear.  Instead of letting that backlog grow even bigger, I will try to post a few shorter ones this week.  Let's start with the  Triple Deviled Egg recipe requested by Sally Ho.
