I absolutely love Chinese food. Not takeout, but real, authentic Chinese food. My mother and her side of the family is Chinese (with a bit of German), and I grew up surrounded by this magnificent culture and delicious cuisine. I was very fortunate to have had a grandmother who cooked Chinese food for us and who luckily passed on her wonderful gift to my mother. My all-time favorite is home cooked Chinese food, but when that’s not available, I have some local spots that can satisfy my cravings.

Adri Likes… Beef-Scallion Skewers
Continuing on to the next dish that I served for my friends at my easy dinner party, the Beef-Scallion Skewers. As I mentioned in the original Tuna Tartare Chips post, while browsing InStyle magazine back in 2006, I came across a party guide section that included wonderful and easy recipes that I have made multiple times and are always a hit. The Beef-Scallion Skewers are part of those recipes and like the tuna tatare chips, they are also very easy to make and super flavorful.

This week I decided to have a few friends over for dinner. Instead of doing a lavish and complicated main dish, I decided to make my favorite and easy dishes which were also on the healthier side.
On the menu:
- Tuna Tartare Chips
- Beef-Scallion Skewers
- Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps
- Jasmine Rice (A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice, from the box)
- Sorbet from The Frieze with ginger pecans on the side (recipe to come)
