Make the package of salad dressing according to the directions on the package and then add 3 T of bladjang and 2 T raspberry puree.
My mother was a dressmaker and made this dress and anything she made be it fashion or cuisine, she would always present it in the most beautiful settings. I think this same kind of finesse is represented in this salad!

I am absolutely nuts......................nuts about peanuts.
For the peanut sauce: small onion chopped, garlic, 3 T tamari, 2T peanut oil, ginger root, red chillies, sugar, juice of a half of a lime, one cup H2O, and one cup roasred unsalted peanuts and blend all these together. I like it a bit crunchy. Bring this mixture to a boil, then simmer on low for 40 mins and just add water and stir if it thickens.
Marinate the beef skewers in a mixture of chopped onion, garlic. tamari, peanut oil, lemon zest, turmeric, fennel. coriander, cracked black, cumin and Mrs balls bladjang.
E-mail me if you are stuck!
You can serve this with the Asian pear salad and some sauteed baby bok choi
Black bean sauce and Mrs Balls bladjang shrimp with a sambal oelek, red bell pepper chutney on the side.

Okay so there is no alcohol in these, but it still spells P A R T Y!
The two tone smoothie on the red tray is a strawberry coconut milk mixture and the other side, a mango coconut mixture. Blend 1 cup of mango pulp with a half cup of coconut cream and a half cup of pineapple juice. Do the same with 1 cup of fresh strawberries but strain this mixture to get rid of seeds and then follow the same procedure as for the mango part of the drink. For the orange drink , mix 1 cup of frozen lillikoi that has been defrosted , half a cup of Australian ginger beer and half cup of seltzer. The red drink is 1 cup of Pom( pomegranate juice and quarter to a half cup of seltzer. Click on my older link below for the Alpine smoothie.

Please take my "title" of this post with a grain of salt!
The couscous has sauteed carrots, peas, lots of garlic, shallots, turmeric, grape tomatoes, black mustard seeds etc.....Served with a strawberry and raspberry Mrs balls bladjang dressing and also a tangerine dressing.
Beat together 3 extra large eggs with a little more than a half cup superfine sugar until thick and fluffy. Add 2 tsp good vanilla (like from Santo Domingo). Sift together 1 cup cake flour, 3 tsp baking powder (like Royal) and a pinch salt. Fold in the dry into the egg mixture by hand. Bring to a boil 3tbsp unsalted butter, 3tbsp water and 3tbsp milk and then add this boiled mixture to the flour mixture and stir vigorously to blend.
Chocolate variation: substitute quarter cup cocoa for quarter cup flour. Makes about 6 large and 10 minis. Bake at 350 for about 25 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.
My three flavors: marshmallow, dark chocolate dipped, chocolate mousse and granadilla curd and coconut cream.
