Fettucine in Tomato Cream Sauce

Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Shellfish, Side Dish
Sprinkle the prawns with the mixed chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and kosher salt. I realize I have no actual amounts here, but it's pretty much 'until it looks right'. Oh, cumin and/or mexican oregano would be good in that combination too. Probably chili powder will be the heaviest, but don't skimp on the salt. Saute the prawns in 1/2 tbs butter, and be careful not to overcook them, lest they turn rubbery.

Plum braised pork chops

Main Dish, Pork
An overnight brine ensures that these chops are incredibly tender. The jelly provides a sweet flavor which permeates really well into the fatty areas. These were a hit with everyone in the family, and Gramma even compared them to pork chops when she was a kid.

Pizza Dough

Main Dish
Combine water, sugar, and yeast. Let sit until the yeast is bubbling. Stir in one cup of flour, then the olive oil and salt. Add another 4 1/2 c flour, mixing with a large spoon until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl and holds together. Sprinkle the last 1/2 cup of flour on your kneading surface. Turn the dough out and knead it until it feels cohesive. Let it rest while you clean and grease the bowl for rising. Continue kneading until the dough is smooth and spongy.

Sauteed Dou Miao with Garlic

Chinese, Main Dish, Vegetable
Heat the wok to a good, hot wok temperature; the highest setting on your stovetop, or like I do, over the grill outside. (The burner from a turkey fryer is great for this). Put the vegetable oil in the wok and get it hot. You can use about half the oil here if you want. Add the garlic and toss until fragrant. This will take less than 30 seconds, probably. Add dou miao and salt in batches; let dou miao wilt slightly before adding more. As moisture from the leaves evaporates, add water if necessary. (I haven't found it necessary to do so yet).

Turn off the heat, but leave the caramels over the water. Place the butter in a microwave safe bowl and melt. Add the remaining milnot to the melted butter. Add the cake mix to the bowl. Mix with a fork until the dry ingredients absorb all the liquid.
