Hi! I am Tay Sun, May 14, 2017 /No Comments Welcome to Tay’s Bipolar Kitchen. Please have a seat at my table. As the name suggests,
Say it with me, Spicy BLT Avocado Toast. Perhaps I should start off by saying that I did not think I liked avocado for the longest time. I know, I know. What type of self-respecting southern Californian does not like avocado? I swear I did not. Boy, I have never been so happy to prove myself wrong.

I love to cook, in case you have not noticed. In my (not so) humble opinion, I tend to be pretty good at it. Recently, I realized I was using my cooking abilities in both a healthy and unhealthy manner. As I look back over the years, I can see where I used it as a tool to get people to like me. Moreover, I would use my culinary prowess to get praise and acceptance.
Roasted Peking Chicken breast is a new recipe to help me in my quest to expand my culinary horizons. When I look for easy, delicious recipes, I cracked open my copy of The All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook by Susan Westmoreland. First off, I still love this cookbook. It was first published on December 31, 2001. My copy is falling apart at the spine. Consequently, I bought a slightly used copy from eBay. Oddly enough, I am still using the tattered copy.
Thai Beef with Basil, came about on a fluke. One day, I was strolling through the produce section of Walmart. Out of the corner of my eye, there was something so very surprising to me. Thai Basil.
Stir-fried beef and broccoli is one of my favorite dishes. It is super simple and quick. The key is to get all your mise en place done and cut your flank steak on a bias. It is also great with chicken, pork tenderloin and several meat substitutes.
Finally we have an almost perfect Chicken & Sausage Gumbo! This is the third time I have made this recipe from Food Network by Emeril. It is actually a combination of this and this recipe by him. When I say it was a journey to make this gumbo for the third time, I would not be exaggerating one bit!
Here is a little something about me: I can't pass up a good sale on groceries. It is a serious issue. I really do need a chest freezer. In my opinion, a vacuum sealer is one the best inventions known to man. Of course, a good Sharpie rounds it all out.
