In the Kitchen: May 2012

May was a month in which the Mrs. made a goal to master (or begin mastering) the art of pastry crust. One of her more tasty goals to be sure, the process of making a fine pie crust requires fine butter (purchased from Costco, because Korean butter is not fine) and some mad finger-flour-butter-combining skills. Melissa has worked hard at mastering Pie Crust and even put together a delicious Blueberry Pie, Lemon and Almond Pie with White Chocolate Drizzle and a Brownie Pie with Bananas and Cream. Each was delicious and have encouraged the Mrs. to continue her pursuit of great pies and pastry crust.

Aside from sweet pies, the month of May produced two crust-less quiche dishes (with a crusted quiche sure to follow in June). Pairing Spinach and Tomatoes for one and Basil and Tomatoes for another, these dishes prove to be a quick and painless breakfast or dinner filled with nutrients and plenty of protein. 

Aside from these typically Western style dishes, the Mrs. has continued to work on putting together Korean-inspired dishes such as Seaweed Dinner Wraps and Sweet Pork Fried Rice.
