New from the archives: three fresh posts (Recipes: Burmese dry chicken curry, aggression cookies, spicy peanut noodles)

Aggression-cookies

Keeping my promise to update posts from the first two years of The Perfect Pantry, before I photographed the food I cooked, Kathy and I recently recreated three dishes that have one thing in common: they've fallen out of regular rotation in my kitchen and I can't imagine why.

Salmon-fried-rice-detail

In the early days of The Perfect Pantry, I didn't know how to photograph the food I cooked. Keeping a promise to myself, and to you, I've been going back to update posts from the first two years, a few recipes at a time, adding new photos and repairing links that no longer go anywhere.

This month's updates feature reduced-sodium soy sauce, dried fruit, and white whole wheat flour.
