This week I have been running to China town after work in search of some items. I am participating in Jadens Steamy Kitchens recipe testing for her new book. How exciting it is!Certain Someone is all for it as he loves Asian food. Don't know how many I will get through but what an innovative way to create a book. Jaden is a trail blazer. She says we can send our friends over to participate but please dont reveal her recipes. But look at some of the tasty things I have made so far.
All that aside I picked up some Japanese Mayonnaise. I have read about this from time to time and thought now was my chance to try it. People go crazy over it. Its made with rice vinegar rather than distilled. Certain Someone loves Mayo on his fries. He actually prefers Miracle Whip( if you want to call that Mayonnaise). I'm a little more quirky. Anyway its so hot and hes been coming home later. With weather like this I just like to nibble. He wants his meal. So yesterday I made some deviled eggs. Immediately I thought this needs some spice. So the next day I purchased a tube of Wasabi to add to the Japanese Mayo. Presto. I found perhaps I wasn't so original as there are many recipes out there. I finished the deviled eggs with some salt blends I was trying from Jaden. Perfection.
