I chose this recipe because it makes me feel good about myself. Sometimes I say that they’re healthy to justify making them. But actually, these muffins have, like, zero nutritional value. I also chose this recipe because I often buy bananas and then forget I bought them until they get hecka ripe. Then I’m like “Oh, I should probably eat those.” So this is a good recipe for non-overly-ripe-banana-wasters. This recipe is significant to me because once I ate a lot of these muffins instead of buying normal food. These banana muffins sustained me for almost a week. I would not be here today if not for this basic banana muffin recipe. — Callista Lam

orn tortillas (a must!)

Add the thinly cut meat, seasoned with salt, pepper and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. As soon you see juices coming out of the meat, start removing it with a ladle and set it aside in a little ramekin, to be used later on the dish. Keep removing the juices as the meat cooks, tossing every now and then, until the meat starts browning. In the meantime, blend the tomatillos, garlic, onion, Serrano, cilantro, and 2 cups of water. Blend well until liquid, then add another 2 cups of water, and blend again. Set aside. At this point your meat should be a little brown and the bottom of the pot has built some delicious fond. Add to the pot, the bean broth, the tomatillo cilantro, onion garlic, serrano blend, and the reserved meat juices that you where reserving all along. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Cover with a lid and leave it on low simmer for 20–25 minutes. Check on the meat. The broth should be loose, but with enough body. Taste the meat for tenderness. If the meat is still a bit tough, simmer for another 10 minutes, and add a bit more water if necessary. Usually this will depend on the type of meat you buy. Since the meat is cut into thin slices, it’s no biggie. Once the meat is tender, and the broth is on point, add the cooked beans, adjust if it needs more liquid. Bring the broth to a rapid simmer until the beans warm up. Turn off the heat, and it’s ready to serve!

I chose this recipe because it’s not just a family recipe, it’s a traditional soup or stew in Mexico. Every family has their own way of making it, some add Chile peppers or other minor ingredients, but it’s essentially the same, this is just how my family makes it in special events like Christmas or New Years. – David Del Pilar

Sarma is a traditional Croatian dish that begins its preparation as early as six weeks before the time it will be served, on Christmas day. This recipe is made across many Croatian households and is always the main dish we serve during Christmas dinner, but continues to feed us well beyond Christmas day (as it is often made in large quantities and always has leftovers). While it is long process, it is an important tradition that we enjoy keeping alive for the holiday despite the terrible smell the pickled cabbage has on its own, another reminder to always store the pickling bucket outside and away from any windows. Not joking. – Nikolina Cargonja

arge heads of sour cabbage (sauerkraut)

moked pork ribs

round pork

round beef or veal

ncooked long-grain white rice

nion, finely chopped

minced garlic

Preparation Core the cabbage heads and add a handful of rock salt or coarse salt into core head of cabbage(s) and place into a clean/ sterile bucket. Fill bucket with water until covered. Place heavy covering on top so cabbage stays fully submerged. Let pickle (sour) for 6 weeks.

egeta

aprika

round black pepper

eer (for binding)

Directions Mix all ingredients together in large bowl (except cabbage and ribs). Separate the cabbage leaves making sure to keep each leaf in tact. Form small oblong rolls of meat mixture (about 1/2 cup) and wrap/roll each one into an individual cabbage leaf, tucking sides in, creating Sarma rolls. Layer bottom of a large pot with leftover cabbage leaves or sauerkraut. Add a layers of Sarma rolls followed by a layer of pork ribs. Continue layers until you run out of rolls or room in your pot. Finish off with a little more sauerkraut or cabbage leaves. Fill pot with water to just cover, or you can use brine from your cabbage if you like it a little more sour. Bring to boil then simmer for on low for 3 hours, add water if necessary. Optional, add a little tomato sauce. Serve by itself, or with some mashed potatoes.

There is a single dish that I always have to eat during a visit to my parents. It is the classic family recipe that is our homestyle Mac and Cheese. Originally made by my grandmother, the recipe has been a centerpiece of family gatherings for generations. Simple as it is, there is a certain way it tastes that will just remind you of home. – Spencer White

cooking (usually 7-9 minutes) ce. Keep an eye on your pasta; it will ady before your sauce is done.

Directions Melt 2 tbsp butter in a saucepan. Add 2 tbsp flour to form a paste. This next step is IMPORTANT! Add the milk SLOWLY, stirring constantly as you add the milk. It should be an ever-thickening process. A small amount of milk, stir, a small amount of milk, stir etc. This part takes patience and time or it ends up lumpy and overly thick. After the milk is fully added (remember this may not need all 2 cups) add in about 1 cup of cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. The sauce should be super creamy and thick. Add more milk or cheese if necessary. The pasta should be drained. Put it back in its pot and set it aside with a little bit of butter stirred in. Once the white sauce is done add it to the cooked pasta and stir it all together. If it’s too thick add a bit of milk. Preheat your oven to 350. Now layer the pasta. Add about half to the baking/ casserole dish. Make a layer of the bitesize sausage. Salt and pepper. About 1/4 cup cheese. Repeat. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

This is a recipe my great-grandmother passed down to my grandmother who passed it to my mom. I always remember the delicious madeleines and how hard it was to “just have one”. My great grandmother made a note on the recipe that said: “This is from a French Cookbook. It’s the easiest of all the Madeleine recipes I have. I always kept frozen butter on hand so I could fix these in a hurry.” – Joshua Ronda

Mango and Sticky Rice My mom only makes mango and sticky rice for special events, such as birthdays and Lunar New Year. The coconut milk adds both its flavour and creaminess, it can be eaten hot or cold—if eaten cold add a bit more coconut milk to the rice. It is sometimes topped with crunchy toasted mung beans. – Jessica May

22


Serves 4 1 cup

white glutinous rice or sweet rice

1-3/4 cup

coconut milk

1/3 cup

sugar

3/4 tsp

salt

2

Set colander on a rack over water in a large pot; water must not touch rice. Cover pot; bring water to a boil. Reduce heat slightly; steam rice 25 minutes. Meanwhile, open can of coconut milk carefully without shaking. Spoon off Ÿ cup of thick milk that has risen to the top. Place in a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate. Stir remaining coconut milk to blend. Measure ½ cup; reserve remainder for another use. Stir coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Remove rice from steamer. Spoon into 1-½ quart baking dish. Stir sugar mixture into rice. Cover, return to steamer and steam 10 more minutes. Remove baking dish to a rack. Let rice cool, covered, to room temperature. Peel mangoes; slice pulp. Divide rice among dessert plates. Top with 1 tablespoon reserved thick coconut milk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Garnish with mango slices.

Marble Bundt Cake From since I can remember, my grandma has always made the best desserts. This recipe is my favorite. Every year I would look forward to go to my grandma’s house during the holidays because I knew after dinner I was going to get a slice of marble cake. She put so much time, precision, and love into this recipe that when you make this cake it is bound to be delicious. – Charlotte Rubel

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes, or until cake pulls away from the sides of the pan when gently touched or a long wooden toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the cake. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes and invert the cake over a plate. Allow to cool completely before dusting the cake with powdered sugar.

This is a classic Mexican dish, typically eaten at breakfast (or even as a snack). Ever since I was little, my parents would always make this dish for our family that we would then eat together at the table. I would also always eat this with my grandparents, uncles, aunts, or cousins whenever I visited my family in Mexico. – Aitana Martinez Huerta

29


Pasta with Homemade Marinara Sauce When I was growing up, my mom always made pasta with marinara sauce for my brother and I.

Directions Toast the cinnamon and star anise in a dry pan over medium-high heat for about 2–3 minutes to get the flavor and aroma out. Use the same pan and roast the onion and ginger for about 10–15 minutes, until they get black on the outside and leak juice. Remove them from the pan. Slice the ginger and peel the onion by removing the tip and root but retaining its shape. Clean out the chicken and rinse it under cold water. Place the chicken in a large pot and pour 3 liters of water, adding the salt, sugar, and roasted onion and ginger after it. Cover the pot and bring it to a hard boil for 15 minutes. Check once in a while and remove the scum that’ll accumulate on the surface of the soup (pro tip: don’t stir the soup at this point to keep it clear). Cover and reduce the heat to low, letting simmer for 1 hour and continuing to skim as needed. Remove the chicken from the soup into a large bowl of ice water to make the texture of the meat nice. Shred or slice the chicken meat to prepare for serving. Add the toasted spices into the soup along with 2–3 tsp fish sauce, or to taste. Simmer for another half an hour without the lid on. For the fried shallots, heat over a large pan over medium heat. Add the cooking oil and spread the shallots into oil evenly and cook until a light golden brown. This should take about 2–3 minutes. Remove from heat and place on a paper towel to remove extra oil. Serve the soup over a bowl of cooked pho noodles and chicken, adding in what garnishes (and fried shallots) you have, to taste.

Savory Steamed Cabbage Serves 4 2 tbsp

cooking oil

3

green onions, or scallions

1 tbsp

garlic, minced

1/2 head

cabbage

1/2 cup

water

2 tbsp

soy sauce

Directions Cut the head of cabbage in half, then chop it into large pieces. Remove any bruised or wilted leaves. Chop green onions or scallions. Peel and mince garlic. In a large, lidded pot, mix the cooking oil, green onions or scallions, and garlic. Cook on medium to high until the green onions or scallions become slightly translucent and the garlic starts to brown. Turn the heat down to medium. Add the chopped cabbage and stir so that the oil, green onions or scallions, and garlic are evenly mixed. Then add a 1/4 cup of water and cover the pot, letting the cabbage steam for about a minute and a half or until bright green. Stir again, add another 1/4 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Cover and let steam for about a minute and a half. This time the cabbage will be a little less bright green, but it should be more tender. Add more soy sauce to taste. Turn off the stove and stir until the cabbage reaches desired tenderness.

I chose this recipe because I love its story. When my mother and her family moved from Uruguay to the United States, my grandfather was going to college in South Carolina. Because of this, they lived in student housing near other immigrant families. My grandmother often traded recipes with their neighbors, this recipe originally belonging to a Chinese immigrant family who lived next door. This recipe blended cultures once more when my mother moved to Louisiana years later and adopted the tradition of preparing black eyed peas and cabbage as a New Year’s Day meal. While her black eyed peas recipe was drawn from Louisiana, she has always prepared the cabbage in this style. – Isabela Presedo-Floyd

4

green onions, chopped

6

2 tbsp

Turn up the heat to high, add the Lap Cheong and cook until browned. Add the cauliflower (keep the heat on high), and cook for 8-10 minutes. Add the green onions and the Chinese dried red chili peppers. Season with salt if needed. Cover the lid and bring everything to a simmer. Add a little bit of water if pan gets too dry. Uncover, give everything another stir, and serve over rice!

My favorite dish during my trip to Sichuan, China was their Sichuan Spicy Dry-Pot Cauliflower. It was super tasty and I absolutely love cauliflower, so I wanted to recreate it. It took me multiple tries to figure out the recipe since all I had to remember it was the taste. This dish is my favorite because it is super tasty, ingredients are cheap and easy to find, it is super simple to make, and it brings me back memories. – Betty Che

eef bone soup

Cut the beef into cubes and boil it until there is no blood. (The meat should be cut to 1/3 more than the size you want after cooking because it will shrink during cooking). Bake the spices in a dry pan and placed them in a cloth bag or tea bag. Put the oil in the pan, first simmer the ginger, then add the onion and stir fry until golden. Continue to put a little sesame oil and put the garlic and pepper to the scent (The onion is thinly sliced and is easy to melt into the soup when stewed). Pour the sauce into the pot and continue to put spicy bean paste, sand tea sauce, rock sugar, and white pepper to bring out the fragrance. Put the boiled beef and stir fry for a few minutes. Put in the tomato and fry until it is soft. Add beef bone soup, rice wine, and the spice bag. The stewing time is as follows: More fat, beef ribs / boneless short ribs — within 1 hour or less Moderately oily parts, brisket or flank - 2 hours No fat, but delicate meat - 2 hours If you use a pressure cooker, it can be done in 1 hour in 20 minutes (refers to the traditional pressure cooker, not electronic) Skim the oil floating on top of the soup. Boil the noodles and two pieces of Taiwanese cabbage. Put in a bowl, add the beef and soup, fried sauerkraut, parsley, and chopped green onion.

10 slices

ginger

2

cinnamon

2

bay leaves

1/4 bottle

rice wine a little Chenpi (sun-dried tangerine peel)

Directions If you only need the broth for the beef noodle recipe, use about 1/2 kilogram of beef bone, add about 3 liters of water, and cook 2.5 liters of broth. The whole recipe makes about four or five bowls of beef noodles, each bowl requiring about 500 mL of soup.

Place 2 kg of big bones of cattle, 1 broiler chicken, 1 large slice of onion, 1 large piece of carrot, 8 cloves of garlic, and put them in a baking pan. Apply a little oil. Put it in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for about half an hour (turn it halfway) until the surface is browned. If you find that the bones and meat are starting to burn in the middle, turn the temperature down a bit. Put the baked ingredients in a large stockpot (at least 12 liters) and add 10 liters of water. Pour hot water into the baking pan and pour the juices at the bottom of the pan into the stockpot. Put in 2 pieces of bay leaf, 3 pieces of nutmeg, 10 pieces of ginger, 1 piece of celery, 1/4 bottle of rice wine, a few pieces of black pepper. Boil and then turn to low heat, cover, and cook for at least three hours. It is best to cook for more than five hours. Skim in the middle, but do not stir. After cooking and cooling, pick up the oil on the surface and filter out the stock.

Tofu Tacos My mom always made this for us as kids, great spicy mexican-type vegetarian food that literally everyone loves. It is a quick dinner, and makes great leftovers (good hot or cold) and also is good with whatever veggies you have around the house that you wanna get rid of. – Emma Hoban

I chose this recipe because it is one of my favorite meals that my mom would make for me. She would usually make it during Chinese New Years and cook them for breakfast. It is also a main dish in dim sum, that is usually accompanied by hot tea. I also just miss Chinese food. (disclaimer: does not include any turnip, it is just the more well-known name when ordering). – Michelle Cao

ce flour

water

Chinese style sausage

aikon radish

ried shrimp

callion

ried Chinese black mushroom

alt/pepper

ooking oil

oy sauce or oyster sauce

Directions Let the dried mushroom and dried shrimp sit in cold water for 30 minutes. Chop the scallion and dice the sausage and mushroom. Grate the radish. Add grated radish and 1 cup water to large pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so the radish does not brown. Scoop the cooked radish into a large mixing bowl to cool. Next, pour the remaining liquid into a measuring cup and fill the rest with water until you have 1 cup of liquid and pour it back in with the cooked radish. Heat your pan over medium heat and add a two tablespoons oil. Add the dried shrimp, mushrooms, and sausage and cook for about 5 minutes. Then stir in the chopped scallion and remove from the heat to cool. Add rice flour, salt, sugar, and white pepper to the mixing bowl with the radish and cooking liquid. Mix until all the dry ingredients are well-incorporated. Add in the cooked scallion, shrimp, mushrooms and sausage into the mixture. Pour the mixture into a well-oiled pan. Place the pan into a steamer and steam on medium-high heat for half an hour. Once finished, let it cool completely before cutting into ½ inch thick pieces. Then fry the pieces on a well-oiled pan with medium low heat. Enjoy by dipping into soy sauce or oyster sauce!
