  • baked sushi
    We made this dish for our friends the night we hosted the Holiday Karaoke Extravaganza that turned into the Epic Loft Party. One of us asked for this recipe after trying it at a party we had attended a few years back, and now we are passing it on so that you too can share this at your next party! Adapted from a recipe from our family friend Shelley Kurata who in turn got it from Kathy Kurata. mayonnaisesour creamkambokotobiko roegreen onionsshitake mushroomsricecooking sprayfurikakekorean seasoned nori
  • big d's beef machaca
    Our fall intern Darren indicated in his flavor profile that he really likes beef machaca. No one on the team had tasted machaca before, so we set out to make it. Our recipe has been combined and adapted from the ones posted on Food Network and Epicurious. We served this with the coleslaw recipe from Bakesale Betty's. The machaca and the coleslaw were delicious together! Standing at 6 feet tall, Darren is the tallest member of our team. He towers over all of us, so we've nicknamed Darren "Big D." :) lime juiceworcestershire sauceMaggiwatergarlicserrano chilecuminchili powdersalt and pepperolive oilskirt steakvegetable oilyellow onionbell peppergarlicserrano chilesdried oreganocuminsalt and pepperbeef brothdiced tomatoesTabascosalt and peppertortillaslimesalsalettuceguacamole
  • carroll shelby's chili
    Carroll Shelby was a car designer, most famous for the Shelby Mustangs, yet also famous for his chili mix. We always have a packet in our pantry. This recipe is easy to make and tastes way better than canned chili. We've modified the ingredients and proportions to our taste, and we sometimes make it ahead of time then simmer it on low to reheat it. It seems to taste better the next day. This simple crowd-pleaser disappears quickly. :) oiloniongarlicground beefCarroll Shelby's Chili Kitsaltdiced tomatoeswaterbeanssteamed ricecheesesour creamcilantrogreen oniondiced onionhot sauce
