Lemongrass Baked Chicken Wings (ปีกไก่อบตะไคร้)

Thai Baked Chicken Wings with Dried Chili Dipping Sauce by SheSimmers.com

African Chicken (Galinha à Africana) in the style of Henri’s Galley

Galinha à Africana (African Chicken) in the style of Henri's Galley
I had a chance to visit Macau for the first time as an adult this past summer. After the first few hours there, I realized I should have planned a longer stay. I ate as well and variedly as I could, but even so I barely scratched the surface in terms of what this place has to offer. There is so much to see, experience, and eat there.

Hot Soppressata Macaroni & Cheese with Crispy Leeks

Hot Soppressata Macaroni and Cheese with Crispy Leeks
Let’s take a little break from our regular schedule of Thai recipes.

Earlier this year, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board has hired me, like they have every year for the past 4 years, to develop another macaroni and cheese recipe for their website, All Things Mac & Cheese. And I came up with this creamy, comforting, spicy casserole featuring a topping of crispy leeks.

The recipe for hot soppressata macaroni and cheese with crispy leeks can be found here. Initially, I tested out this idea with Chinese dry sweet sausage, lap cheong, thinking it might work. Well, I don’t think it did. But if you think you may like that combination, it’s an option for you as well; simply replace the soppressata with the same amount of Chinese sausage.
