The Culture Food Stir It Up!

  • Stir It Up! Homemade pad Thai sauce in bulk, plus easy pad Thai

    A big jar of pad Thai sauce in the back of your fridge can be used for a number of weeknight dinners, from stir fry, to sweet and sour meatballs. With some rice noodles, shrimp, and veggies classic pad Thai is a few quick steps away.

  • Stir It Up! White chocolate cream cheese cookies

    The key to these thick and chubby cookies is freezing the dough first, and then underbaking them. If you like white chocolate chip cookies, these are a winner.

  • Stir It Up! Piña colada kulfi pops

    Kulfi, or Indian ice cream, is rich, creamy, and sweet, and this recipe requires no boiling, churning, or thickeners. Add crushed pineapple and coconut milk for a piña colada flavor, or experiment with flavor combinations of your own.

  • Stir It Up! Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies

    These chewy delights use chocolate chunks and an unexpected add-in to get the right amount of softness and chocolatey flavor in every bite. Better yet, they stay that way even when they're not straight out of the oven!

  • Stir It Up! Lebanese red cabbage salad

    With colorful red cabbage, kale and carrots, this crunchy salad gets a kick from lemon juice and some nuanced savor from za'atar, a blend of Middle eastern spices. 

  • Stir It Up! Thai basil pork and eggplant

    Summer doesn't have to mean foregoing your favorite Asian stir-fries. Using eggplant or another veggie makes this one-pot meal perfect for a weeknight dinner (or even breakfast).
