There's something about good Chinese takeout. I can taste that slightly spicy and velvety, finely-sliced beef and the crisp, crunchy broccoli with a hint of ginger maybe. Followed by satisfying, sticky rice to cleanse the palate.

1/4 c rice wine vinegar
1/4 c peanut oil - or any neutral oil with a high smoking point
12 oz chopped broccoli or chopped green asparagus
6 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 c oyster sauce
1 Tbsp Sambal oelek - or your favorite chili sauce
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger - optional
2 c rice

This headline may sound like an exaggeration, but it's not. This recipe perfectly fuses the chicken's flavor and texture with a deep-flavored, umami-rich broth. And the best part…actually the two best parts are: It tastes like you cooked this for four hours & it takes less than an hour from start to finish.

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on - about 1.5 lbs
3 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
2 c chicken stock
1/2 c red wine
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced
10 oz fresh spinach, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely sliced
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 (plus leftovers, maybe..)

Yes, that's right! The "made easy at home" part. The other part, not so much. Ceviche is neither fancy nor expensive. It's all about the quality of the ingredients. Ceviche is a seafood dish in which the seafood is cooked (technically called "cured") in citrus juices such as lemon and/or lime. Ceviche is the perfect dish on a hot summer day.

1 lb firm white ocean fish, cut into small strips
1/2 c lemon/lime juice - about 3 limes and 1 lemon
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 small tomato, de-seeded and cubed
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 c cilantro, chopped
1 habanero, de-seeded and cut into very tiny pieces - or use a milder pepper
1 tsp Maldon sea salt
4 appetizers

Gazpacho is an absolutely perfect appetizer (or light main course) on a hot summer day. Today, there are many "traditional" recipes out there. My recipe is not traditional...it's original and adjustable and works with ingredients we already have in our essential pantry. All we need are some fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from your garden or farmer's market. It's more of an idea of a recipe for you to make your own.

2 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, deseeded, and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
4 appetizers (plus 2 Bloody Marys)
