my friend's kitchen: july 4th bbq in taipei

Happy 4th of July! This year was the first time I ever celebrated July 4th in Taipei, much less with a full on bbq on a grassy lawn! Much thanks to my friends J and A for inviting me over and making all the rib fingers and grilled pineapple chicken sooo delicious! Grilled bbq corn, potato salad, cornbread and then fruit and brownies (my small contribution) for dessert.

Yum! I'm totally going to start grilling up some pineapples now on my George Foreman grill (he he) and buying the Stubb's bbq sauce from Costco.

What are you guys eating on your 4th? And does anyone know where to get sparklers in Taipei?

Happy July 4th! We spent our weekend at a cabin party in Miaoli with the Bushman. We had an old-fashioned dutch oven (roasted chicken and veg.) and grill (hubby's incredible burgers. We weren't able to find sparklers either, although I've seen them around. :-)

It's always a pleasure to drop by, Joan. You've never steered us wrong. Thanks very much for sharing!

Hi – I like your blog, and wondered if you’d be interested in sharing your opinion on a new project I’m working on. Well, more than a project. We’ve recently started a new company in Silicon Valley (having started a few successful ones before) addressing the local space.

If you or anyone you know with expertise in (blog topic) would be interested in providing early feedback – we are definitely listening.

The site is, The concept is that writing reviews on Yelp is too cumbersome for most people, and too limited in the # of cities it covers. But that if we can make sharing places – any place anywhere in the world – a lot easier, a lot more people could participate. And that would help us all discover more great places.

We’ve just released the site, it’s an experiment and – well, any opinion would be accepted (you can email me thoughts, or post them anonymously on the feedback link).

Thanks, and great blog.

I ate something really similar when I went to Argentina, Argentines call to this food "asadito" and it's perfect that is one of the most spectacular food I've eaten.
