Miracle painting by Seattle artist.

This blog post is for my husband but I think it's more important for me.

Couple days ago I found that there is an interesting oily spots under one of his painting. In Russia we call this "Mirotochenie icon" It is very special it's like blessing.

I was making researches and I can confirm that it's not from condensation or smoking (in one of the forum I got this idea). Me and my husband are non smokers. 

We got a TARO reading for this phenomena and now I need spread the word about this miracle.

Here is one of the photo and if you'd like to see more please visit Art by J.Trent Sunderland

Cooking at home. PHO soup.

Welcome back to the "Cooking At Home With J.T."

Today he is going to share with you his recipe for PHO soup.

pho broth
PHO broth  

I started with one large pot and about 10 large chunks of beef bones (I tried to get about half knuckles/joints as they have more fat.), I the added 2 tablespoons of sea salt and filled the pot with water. I let it boil about 2 hours while scraping the foam off the top surface. 

I then broiled till just starting to get blackened: one large onion flower cut, 16 pieces of garlic and 4 big slices of ginger, and then added them to the pot.  (sorry no photos of this step) 

I put all the spices in a tied cloth bag; Cinnamon, anise, allspice fennel etc. and threw it in to boil another few hours. 

I turned the stove off to cool till the next day, first thing I scraped the heavy congealed fat from the surface of the broth. I then brought to a boil and removed the bones, spice bag , blackened items, etc and performed one last surface scrape. 

Now the broth is ready! I take 1/4 bowl of the cooked noodles and cover with 5-8 pieces of paper thin cut round-eye and ladle over the boiling broth slowly over all the meat to cook it as the bowl fills.

I like mine PHO noodle soup with Taiwan Basil, Cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, green onions, and bean sprouts, as for condiments use fish sauce, hoisin sauce, hot sauce/garlic pepper paste to taste.
