Wedding Table-Scapes on a Budget

Posted on May 12, 2014 at 3:03 PM Comments comments (0)

Wedding Table-Scapes don't have to be expensive to look Fabulous...Take this super simply ensemble...
Wedding Table ScapeSatin Overlays, Napkins & Elastic Rings can be purchased on-line, because it cost the same to rent... 
  • Stemware and silverware you can rent... 
  • Flowers modest but beautiful... 
  • Candles are wine glasses with lamp shades from your local party store ...
  • Chair Covers can be purchased on-line as well, for almost the same amount as renting, why rent when you can use them at your next party...
  • I hope this helps and don't forget to start as early as possible, because you will spend the bulk of your money with the caterer and you'll want to make timely payments extended over a period of time...
  • Don't get overwhelmed and leave time to relax and enjoy your wedding because the day goes by fast...

This Is Not Chef Boyardee Ravioli

Posted on February 7, 2014 at 8:30 PM Comments comments (0)
Appetizer Ravioli StackOK I'm going there, yes carbs, I love them. I'm sure you do too...
I know you here this all the time moderation, everything in moderation...
Oh so true, that's why it's a good ideal to incorporate whole grains into your diet... You can find some great pre-made whole grain ravioli in the markets today... Take a day and explore @ some of your neighborhood markets, don't forget the farmers market... If you know anything about me
"I Love The Farmers Market" They range in size and the product they sell, but you'll be amazed @ some of the specialty items you'll find... Like "Whole Grain Pasta / Ravioli"...

Most likely you've made a version of this before or enjoyed it at you favorite restaurant and we're not talking about Chef Boyardee Ravioli lol... In this picture I'm using "Spinach & Cheese Ravioli"... I'm using some basic ingredients that I'm sure you have @ home, but if not improvise...

  1. Ravioli (your favorite)
  2. Tomato Sauce (your favorite , red the lables the less additives the better}
  3. Tomatoes (tear drop or cherry)
  4. Green Beans (Fresh or Frozen)
  5. Olive Oil
  6. Fresh Garlic Crushed (pre-crushed in jar is fine if you want to save time)
  7. Fine Bread Crumbs
  8. Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper (or ground black pepper)
                   (cracked has more flavor & stays fresher longer, because it's in seed form)
               9.   Dried Herbs (like parsley, oregano, basil or  Italian herb blend)
               10. Capers (find in almost any market, comes in a jar)
               11. Aged Cheese ( for grating or your favorite firm cheese)

I didn't include any measurements because it all depends on how many people your serving. The picture shows an appetizer size.

  1. Bring to boil a medium to large pot of water, add a dash of salt & about 1/2 tsp of olive oil
                    {I like to add a little dried herb to the water, this is twice the spice}
                2. Heat a saucepan on medium low heat, add about 1 tsp of olive oil 
                    to coat the bottom of the pan, add a little garlic and stir until fragrant, add
                    a pinch of dried herbs and you tomato sauce, place lid on top and simmer
                3. Heat oven to 375 degrees, coat tomatoes in olive oil and sprinkle with a
                    little salt & black pepper, roast in oven until the skin burst about
                    10-15 mins. {when done set aside, keep warm & use for garnish}
                4. Add your green beans to the boiling water, let cook until heated thru,
                     drain set aside (don't dump the water, reuse for ravioli, bring to boil)
                 5. Heat a fry pan on low with enough olive oil to coat the bottom, add a                             a little dried herbs & enough garlic to your liking heat until fragrant
                     about 1-2 mins, Toss your green beans in pan until heated thru about
                     2mins. Turn off heat and keep warm.
                 6. Add Ravioli to the same boiling water you cook the green beans in and
                     follow the package directions {fresh pasta cooks quicker}, drain
                 7. Repeat step 5 add capers, add ravioli, sprinkle on a little bread crumbs to
                     lightly coat the top of the ravioli toss in pan, heat for about 2 mins,
                     remove from heat
                 8. Shred your cheese in a bowl or plate (enough to for topping)
                 9. Assemble your warm plate by
                    {placing in the oven after you cooked your tomatoes, & the oven is off}

"The Fabulous Farmers Market"

Heart Healthy Farmers Market
 
 
 
My Farmers Market Tip of The Day
 
============
 
Collards
Savory Cabbage
Broccoli Rabe
Bok Choy
Carrots
Leeks
Parsley
 
 
As you all may know, my name is Chef Steph G., I'm a self trained chef & owner of "Twice The Spice Caterers" I was practically raised, shopping @ the Farmers Market... The first one was 9th St, we call it, in South Philly or The Italian Market... That was over 30 yrs ago, I think I'll stop there, lol...
 
Today I'm in love with Farmers Markets, especially the ones that sell  everything from, produce, to spices, seafood, meat, breads, cheese, preserves, fresh made juice, prepared foods & even hand made scented candles and soaps... Wow how we've grown... You'll be amazed @ what you'll find @ a Farmers Market today...
 
I was visiting one of my favorite Farmers Market & took a picture of these fresh veggies...
 
All these fabulous veggies go great in a stir fry or alone... Which either way, you can't go wrong... You can add them to rice, pasta, stews, sauces, sandwiches, casseroles, pizza, omelets, smoothies, breads, cakes, pies, salads, etc...
 
The next time your can't decide what to cook for dinner, visit the Farmers Market and let your imagination run wild...
 
DON'T FORGET WHAT MOM SAID, EAT YOUR VEGGIES!!!

Take Out Food "U" Can Make @ Home

Posted on August 15, 2013 at 11:33 AM Comments comments (0)
Ethnic Cuisine from around the world including my favorite Veggie Egg Fu Yung w/ Red Thai RiceOne of my favorite's
    "Egg Foo Young"
I love egg foo young, but I rarely eat it because of certain ingredients that are used to enhance the flavor, like MSG (monosodium glutamate) which has been controversial for a long time know and has been added to oriental cuisine in just about every Oriental Take Out Restaurant in the US. So I choose to not eat it, since some people have had bad reactions, after eating high doses in their food.
 
So what do you do about it? You learn to cook it. Through research, I found that it was easy and reasonably price to prepare egg foo young myself and you can prepare it too, with a few simple ingredients and a little time.
 
  • buy and cook your favorite rice, or be creative, I used Red Thai Rice in the picture above because I was feeling it that day.
 
Recipe Below
  • 6tbs cooking oil (for frying egg mixture, depending on your wok or pan size)
  • yields 2-3 (5inch patties)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2tsp sesame oil
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2tsp oyster sauce
  • 1tsp Shaoxing wine (optional)
  • pepper to taste about 1/8 - 1/4tsp
  • veggies including, 2oz bean sprouts, 1oz shitake mushroom or any mushroom you like (stems removed and sliced, 1oz onion (sliced), 1/2oz baby bok choy (sliced use the green leafs) 
  • sliced scallion (for topping)
 
  1. Heat oil in Wok or Fry Pan.
  2. Mix all ingredients thoroughly, except veggies.
  3. Than add veggies.
  4. Drop a tad of egg mixture in pan, if it bubbles up it's ready
  5. Move quickly ladle your egg in wok top with veggies (cook until brown on both sides, you will have to flip over patty)
 
Brown Sauce or Gravy
  • 1c cup chicken stock or broth (heat in pot)
  • pinch garlic powder
  • pinch cayenne
  • 2tbs soy sauce
  • 2tsp cornstarch
  • 2tbs water
  • 1 1/2tsp sesame oil
 
  1. add to the pot with hot broth
  2. garlic powder, cayenne, soy sauce and taste
  3. add the water to the corn starch in a medium size bowl
  4. remove pot from heat & add 1/2 the hot broth to the corn starch mixture slowly, (whisking)
  5. pour the sauce from the bowl back into the pot, with the rest of the broth whisk and add sesame oil, cover to keep warm
 
Serve immediately (plate your rice, patty, ladle with sauce and top w/ sliced scallion (optional)
 
Enjoy my take on Veggie Egg Foo Young
fyi (to make it interesting add a little, shredded chicken or beef, shrimp scallop or lobster)
Whatever you do have fun with it an don't forget to taste as you!!!
