Indonesian Cucumber Salad

I made this recipe as a side dish and really enjoyed it. It reminds me a little bit of the cucumber salad you can find in many Thai restaurants, but I love the addition of cilantro. I used one red Thai chili when I made this and it had a great spicy kick to it, but I suggest using less if you have a low tolerance for spicy foods. Serve this as a side dish for any Southeast Asian inspired meal.

Betty Bossi's Potatoes au Gratin (Kartoffelgratin Spezial)

These potatoes are a great comfort food when the weather is cold. This recipe comes from a Swiss cookbook and is very easy to make. The ingredients are simple and most people I know love potato dishes, so it's also a crowd pleaser. It tastes best out of the oven since the top layer of potatoes will have a slightly crunchy crust on top. Some people like to sprinkle cheese over the final layer of potatoes, but you can do whatever you prefer.

Mustard Glazed Whitefish

I was looking for a simple fish recipe to make when I was visiting my parents. I came across this Indonesian fish recipe and thought it sounded like a nice alternative to my usual panko crusted variation. Though I did not find the flavor of this fish to be Indonesian at all, the mustard glaze make a nice, simple marinade. This recipe is simple and come together quickly, making it a great weekday meal option.
