  • Lemongrass Miso Soup

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:21 pm
    One of the things I've most enjoyed experimenting with over the past year is broths. I suppose the style of broths I'm interested in would technically be considered vegetable broths. That said, these aren't what one tends to think of as a typical - I rarely kick things off with the holy trinity of onion, carrots, and celery. Instead, I might focus one around a favorite chile pepper, or varietal of dried mushroom, or, in this case, lemongrass. It might be more helpful to think of these as thin, flavor-forward soups, where I attempt to build on a short list of intense flavors. I like these…

    This is a meal that I made pretty-much on the spur of the moment last week, utilizing some ingredients that I need to use up.  It turned out to be one of our favorites so far! Lots of veggies and flavors and creamy goodness, and a minimum of effort.I originally set out to make an orzo salad (my husband loves orzo, the pasta that looks like rice), but I ended up serving it hot because we didn't want to wait!  It was super-delicious that way, as a sort of pilaf.  The next day, we enjoyed it cold, for lunch, as a salad.  I love making versatile recipes!CONFESSION:  There…

    What you can't see in the photos here is the river running just a few feet out of frame. You can't smell the pine and redwood or their sun-warmed tree bark. What you can see is a good lunch. We were greeted at my friend Bonni's sweet, little alpine cabin with this deliciousness. I thought I'd share her feta-olive preparation - it was beautiful, and it is something you can throw together and serve as part of a series of mezze for people to pull from. It's comprised of good feta and olives served with a lot of fresh oregano, slivered lemon rind, black pepper, and a thick finishing thread of…
  • Pineapple Coconut Water

    9 Jul 2014 | 9:39 pm
    Once or twice a year, I buy a pineapple. It feels like a strange thing to purchase in San Francisco. Pineapples = hot tropics, beaches, bare feet, and endless summers. San Francisco = fog, wind, Victorian architecture, and year-round denim. I remember driving between San Diego and Northern California, along the Pacific coast, when I was in my early twenties, driving home from college, and coming across a small pineapple farm near Oxnard. But, aside from that, this isn't pineapple country. I never see them at the farmers' markets here, so I don't think about them much. That said, the other day…

    This coming weekend I'm planning a break from the fog. If all goes well, there will be sun-bright days, star-lit skies, pine trees, bare feet, and eating outdoors. There will be a river. There will be a grill. There will be a cabin. All the necessary components for California mountain summering. I'm incredibly excited. As soon as we solidified our plans I started going through my archives looking for ideas for good picnic-style salads to make, and found myself drafting a list of contenders. It occurred to me that it might be helpful to post the list here as well. Most of these salads are the…
  • Spiced Spinach with Walnuts

    25 Jun 2014 | 6:03 pm
    Simply stated, this is a spinach recipe you should try. It's an adaptable dish that downshifts seamlessly from main attraction to supporting role depending on the quantity of leftovers at hand. The jist: a hot pan filled with all manner of things that work well with spinach - toasted walnuts, shredded mint, lemon, a host of spices, and a good amount of leeks that are cooked until silky tender. Loaded with spinach greens and healthful spices like turmeric and cumin - this is the sort of preparation I favor, in part, because it adds such a nutritional punch to my day while still being…

    We just got back from a short but sweet holiday in the vibrant, energetic city of Hong Kong.  Although I am an absolute island girl, and I do enjoy the great outdoors (as long as no sports or creepy-crawlies are involved), I am also a city girl (as contradictory as that may sound) -- I love tall buildings, busy streets, and concrete jungles.  And as far as cities go, Hong Kong is pretty amazing.  It is a tiny little island teeming with activity and action…from executive offices high up in the sky to back rooms in sketchy alleyways, there is always something happening in Hong…

    Pork and beans is something that I have eaten, and loved, throughout my whole childhood (and well into adulthood).  Yes, I do mean good old pork and beans in the can.  It may not be the healthiest, but it was something my brother and I always looked forward to when we were little, and as such, something that can never be truly “bad” for me, because it holds such a strong sense of nostalgia.   I remember what my parents would do, to make it taste more “home-cooked”, was to sauté some onions and garlic, and perhaps a bit of bacon, before adding the pork and…

This was my latest creation, […]

    There’s a reason why the Southern dish of stewed okra and tomatoes is timeless. It’s just plain good. First you start with browning some bacon, then you add the holy trinity—onions, bell pepper, and celery, then the tomatoes, okra and spices. Everything is cooked together until tender and almost falling apart. Continue reading "Stewed Okra and Tomatoes Creole Style" »

    Loved the fresh garden mint in this Cucumber, Avocado, and Garbanzo Salad with Feta, Lemon, and Mint.A few weeks ago I had a couple of avocados on my counter that were crying out to be used, so I started thinking about how to use them.  I improvised with inspiration from this salad and the lemon-Feta vinaigrette from this salad, and the resulting combination of flavors in this Cucumber, Avocado, and Garbanzo Salad with Feta, Lemon, and Mint was really a wow for me.

The first time I tried grilling corn-on-the-cob, by placing shucked corn directly on the grill, the results weren’t all that stellar. Too dried out and chewy. I consulted “She-who-knows-everything-when-it-comes-to-home-cooking” (a.k.a. mom) who informed me that the best way to grill corn is to cook the corn in their husks, directly on a hot grill.

    Within reason, I think if you’re craving something, you should go for it, although this theory is mostly born of my own poor logic. I’ve all too many times craved, say, a brownie but thought I shouldn’t eat a brownie and so instead snacked on (just for a completely random example) 12 almonds, 1 slice of cheese, half an apple, 1 banana and then, oops, a handful of chocolate chips, amounting roughly 3x the calories of a brownie, a brownie that I craved exactly as much as I did 500 calories ago.

    These sweet and spicy IPA beer nuts are super easy to make and are so addicting.  You can adjust the heat on these by adding more or less Sriracha and Cayenne. 1/3 cup IPA beer (I used Great Divide Brewing Titan IPA) 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 1/2 cups mixed nuts (I used a mixture of peanuts, cashews and almonds) Add the beer and brown sugar to a large saucepan over medium heat.  Stir until sugar has melted.  Bring to a boil.

  • Korean Fried Chicken Sauce – The Sauce of Things to Come

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:49 pm
    Who says you have to read H. G. Wells to reference him? Anyway, this lovely sweet and sour sauce is part one of a two-part series on Korean fried chicken. That video will be posted on Wednesday, and if you want to enjoy it at 100% awesomeness, you’ll want to whip up a batch of this stuff. As I disclaimed in the video, this is just my take, and while I think it’s pretty classic, there are a couple of things I do differently. I like to add lots of green onion and garlic, as well as not cook this quite as long as most recipes call for. The result is a sauce with those ingredients a little…
  • Korean Fried Chicken is the Best Fried Chicken

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:43 pm
    I've always considered myself something of a fried chicken expert. Whether we’re talking sports bars, casual dining, or white tablecloth restaurants, if there's some kind of fried chicken on the menu, I'm going to order it. Because of that fact, and my advanced age, I’ve pretty much had every single style known to man, and this Korean fried chicken is officially my favorite. No other method I've come across has the same combination of tender, juicy, flavorful chicken, and plate-scratching crispiness as this recipe does. It's simply a must try if you're a fan of the genre. The…

    8 Jul 2014 | 6:58 pm
    I am gonna keep this one short and sweet today. This is a quick flashback to a popular post from the old site which happens to still be a favorite dish of mine. There is nothing like having a big jar or three of these zingy, spicy pickled tomatoes and jalapenos in the fridge to snack on or to top salads or grill fish with. Is it a condiment? Is it a snack? Hell,I don't know but it is wonderful, especially when the tomatoes are in season and fresh and ripe. Take this recipe to new levels by using a mixture of heirloom tomatoes locally sourced from a farmer market or vegetable stand. Oh and…

    Ahh the King of Gumbos as it's called in old New Orleans. Gumbo Z'Herbs, in parts of Louisiana that are predominantly Catholic, was traditionally served on Good Friday. The reasoning was that after so many days of Lenten the body needed to be rejuvenated with high potency vitamins like the ones found in many greens. And when this tradition was in full bloom the more types of greens the better. The old saying was that for every type of green added to the Gumbo Z'Herbs, you would make a new friend in the coming year. Nowadays this dish is mostly referred to as vegetarian gumbo, My version…

    28 Jun 2014 | 12:23 pm
    Hey it’s a freakin sausage fest here at CCF lately. Literally, because we are making chorizo. Yes it is true that many of the recipes here call for spicy chorizo. It can add a nice kick to many dishes. Again when I call for chorizo I am referring to the fresh (not cured and dried) version, of which I simply remove from the casing and add the meat mixture as an ingredient. Well it turns out that many of you don’t have a local deli or meat market that regularly churns this stuff out at an alarming rate like we do here in Florida.

    I just made this & it’s in the freezer but so far this recipe has been fantastic! When I was making the custard, I think I cooked it to long & it turned into a scrambled egg-like mixture. I poured it into seperate bowl & used an immersion blender and it seemed to fix it! Also, make sure your mixture is completely chilled before putting it into the ice cream maker or it will not freeze. Can’t wait to try it! I sampled a bit & it has a great rich flavor and the method of putting the melted chocolate works out great!

    Decadent.  Did you ever feel like you just need carbohydrates?  Rough day?  Week? Month?  Yeah.  I had one of those days and I could not get the idea of pasta and potatoes out of my brain.  So?  I went with it.  This was so very good – comforting, very satisfying.  Feel free to halve the recipe if you’re rather not have leftovers for three days. I’m not complaining, but the leftovers could not be ignored and it turned into three days of eating lots of carbs.  Let me know if you try this, I’m very interested in hearing what everyone else things about Linguine…

    These things are awesome!  I’ve been hearing about Zoodles (zucchini noodles) for years, but I’d never tried them.  This week I changed that.  I was really dying for some pasta, we all were and in our ongoing effort to stay off the processed carbs, I bought zucchini. I don’t have a spiralizer and I was really dreading the thought of trying to cut that much zucchini by hand -  but then I remembered that I have a mandoline and I thought that one of the blades, had to be able to get me close… It did. Honestly?  This is one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment…

    Grilled steak with sweet balsamic caramelized onions are tossed with baby arugula, gluten-free quinoa, amaranth and brown rice penne pasta (you can use whatever pasta you like) topped with fresh shaved parmesan – I'm a sucker for a good steak salad, and this one is AWESOME! Packed with protein, it's made with lean sirloin, which I cooked on the grill pan, but you can cook it outside on the grill, or in a large skillet. The gluten-free quinoa pasta was from Tru Roots, it cooks al dente and tastes just like regular pasta, I was very impressed! You can also make this with whole wheat…

It's also vegan, high in fiber, protein and only about 100 calories per serving.I've LOVE making my chicken and lentil soup, but I was never really a fan of using lentils in a salad (I'm a picky legume eater). But the other day I bought a small lentil salad at my local health food store to try and take to the beach and really enjoyed it, but I paid twelve dollars…

So much flavor and color in this dish!And it's hard to believe how light this is! One serving is two thin chops with a generous amount of vegetables on top for only 230 calories (or 6 Weight Watcher Points) I had to actually double check that to see if I was wrong because it sounded too good to be true. If you have a spiralizer, you can use that instead of a mandolin to cut the zucchini and…
  • Crock Pot Minestrone Soup

    15 Jul 2014 | 9:41 am
    This is by far the best recipe you'll ever try for Minestrone soup – a classic, hearty Italian soup with tomatoes, white beans, vegetables and pasta. You can use Swiss chard or baby kale instead of spinach if you wish and you can omit the pasta if you don't want the carbs – honestly you won't miss it with everything else in this soup.It's just my preference, but I like to puree the beans in this soup, it thickens it and you don't even know they are in there (great for picky eaters). What makes this soup extra special, is using the rind from a wedge of parmesan or…

Once I got over my initial wave of disappointment that there wasn’t any coffee involved in the dessert, I discovered that it really is one of the loveliest desserts ever If you’ve never had it, it involves layers of fresh bananas, whipped cream, and dulce de leche.

They have the same thick, luxurious texture as the rest of the line, but the sweeter flavors make them perfect for breakfast or dessert. When I first heard what the new flavors were going to be, I was naturally most excited about the cappuccino one (me + coffee = BFFs).

  • Dip from Roasted Peppers and Walnuts

    Pots and Frills
    20 Jul 2014 | 8:06 am
    Dips can nicely enhance your dinner party starters or add flavor to whatever accompanies a glass of wine or an apéritif, if this is all you serve. I have been making several different dips recently and noticed that the original ones that are home made are always very popular among my guests. Today's dip can also be used as a sauce to accompany grilled meats. It comes from the Middle Eastern tradition and is made from roasted bell peppers and walnuts. I served it with Arabic flat bread or pita bread. It has a distinct taste thanks to the peppers, which should be slightly charred, and a bit…
  • Zucchini Blossoms Omelette--Easy Brunch Idea

    17 Jul 2014 | 4:31 pm
    Let's then say that this is a kind of lazy post because of the busy time I have before a long trip on vacation. And it is even hard to called today's recipe a recipe. It is more of an idea that I would like to share. My beloved zucchini blossoms got frostbitten in the late spring. Last year, I had plenty of them, this summer I harvested only a few. Before I had enough to make any dish of them some already turn into small zucchinis and any dish of stuffed blossoms that I dreamed of unfortunately became impossible. So when last Sunday when I woke up after a long party all I dreamed of was an…
  • Roasted Tomatoes and Bell Peppers Spaghetti Sauce

    Pots and Frills
    11 Jul 2014 | 5:13 pm
    Summer is a tomato season and tomato is my beloved summer vegetable. For the past few weeks local tomatoes have been coming to our stores, fresh from the field, absolutely the best. Because in my house pasta is among the most loved dishes I decided to make my own tomato sauce from scratch. I thought about a sauce made with roasted tomatoes, which is a bit denser and more smokey in taste than just a regular tomato sauce. In Italian cuisine there is a classic recipe for pasta with roasted tomatoes. Tomatoes, or often cherry tomatoes, are roasted then thrown on hot pasta. My kids love tomato…
  • Summer Carrot Salad from Tunisia

    Pots and Frills
    6 Jul 2014 | 5:32 pm
    There are cooked carrot dishes or raw carrot salads. But the recipe I would like to share today is for a salad that is made from cooked carrot and, as all salads, it is served cold. It comes from the Tunisian culinary tradition. I have been reading about this salad in different Mediterranean and African cookbooks and always had the impression that it was worth trying. Last week, I bought a large bag of organic carrots and turned them into a bowl of cooked carrot salad. It is a simple salad but the several recipes for it I read differed somewhat in that they called for slightly different…
  • Tuscan Kale Frittata

    27 Jun 2014 | 5:29 pm
    The variety of greens at farmers' markets and in some stores is very impressive this season. Among them, particularly kale is the one that comes in many leaf shapes and colors I did not know before. Given all the healthy properties of kale I have been trying to incorporate it into may family's daily diet for a long time. But it is not easy to find a really good way of preparing kale so it does not change color too much or become too dry. Each week when I buy kale at my market I listen to people exchanging recipes while digging in kale bunches. So far I heard about kale soup or kale served…

Over the years, I saw her make it so many times that I picked up in the method and ingredients pretty quickly, and this is why I thought it might be a good time to write a post relaying my knowledge. Don’t get me wrong, you’re obviously free to change and add to this recipe in any way you see fit, but in my own humble opinion, it’s already perfect.

  • Creme Fraiche Banana Loaf Cake

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:00 pm
    This turned out to be a fantastically moist banana loaf thanks to the crème fraiche. I also used salted butter for this recipe, rather than my normal unsalted and it gave the cake a lovely salted caramel undertone. One of the best banana loafs I’ve made and the perfect way to use up those pesky black banana’s that always get left at the bottom of the fruit bowl. Hint: I guarantee it will be gobbled up quickly but if you do find yourself with a stale end cut, its also beautiful toasted under the grill, spread with butter and drizzled with honey. Have a lovely weekend.

  • White Bean, Fennel and Chorizo Salad in a Jar

    Brandon Matzek
    23 Jul 2014 | 11:38 am
    I have a confession to make.  Over the past several years, I’ve developed quite a jar obsession. Two and half years ago, I was only a few months into dating my boyfriend Jorge.  He was heading up to San Francisco at the time to visit friends, and I asked him to bring me some items from the city.  Can you guess what I asked him for?  Not a loaf or two of glorious SF sourdough.  No chocolate from Ghirardelli.  No artisan, hand-crafted this or that.  Instead, I asked for jars.  Particularly Weck Jars from Heath Ceramics.  At the time, they were a bit of a rarity.  Crate &…

    Kitchen Konfidence is officially 4 years old!!!  And I’m celebrating with a cocktail. A Brown Butter Old Fashioned to be exact.  This recipes starts with a rapid infusion of bourbon and nutty brown butter.  And by rapid, I mean 24 hours.  In the infusion world, that’s fast.  Toasty, aromatic brown butter is added to smokey bourbon, forming, quite possibly, one of the best things EVER.  The smell is incredible, and the taste is just as good.  I had a hard time keeping myself from drinking it straight up. An Old Fashioned cocktail is typically made with bourbon, sugar, and…

    With just 3 fresh ingredients and minimal effort, you can have a plate of this seasonal pasta on the table in under 1 hour. I know the word confit may conjure up some feelings of worry and anxiety, but I assure you, the process couldn’t be easier.  The term confit is typically associated with meat (especially duck), but can also be applied to fruits and vegetables.  Confit simply means to cook something in fat at a low temperature for a longer period of time. Here, I’m tossing cooked pasta with slow-roasted tomato confit and chopped fresh basil.  To make the tomato confit,…

    OMG!  I’m giving away a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  And other goodies. Let me start by saying that I really love each of these 3 giveaway items.  I personally own a KitchenAid Stand Mixer (same color too), the Ice Cream Maker Attachment and The Perfect Scoop.  The stand mixer makes preparing baked goods (cookies, cake, scones, muffins, meringues) so incredibly easy that I find myself making them more often.  Once I purchased the Ice Cream Maker Attachment, I found the same trend happening with cold desserts.  When you have the right equipment, the process of cooking or baking can…

  • Mashed Purple Potato Salad

    21 Jul 2014 | 6:05 pm
    My 8 year old loves being in the kitchen. Last weekend he decided he wanted potato salad. We went to a farmer's market and he picked out some purple and yellow potatoes for his "creation". I usually prefer a vinaigrette type dressing on my potato salad but he was adamant that he wanted a creamy dressing. He also insisted on mashing them up vs chopped. Can't say he doesn't know what he wants! He added celery and some green onions. The dressing was a combo of reduced calorie miracle whip (you could use mayo), mustard, relish and some extra vinegar for some "zip". I gotta be honest - I wasn't…
  • Oh the Irony Smoothie

    15 Jul 2014 | 8:04 am
    My 8 year old has low iron so in addition to iron supplements, we've been trying to increase iron rich foods in his diet. He's not a big meat eater so it's not exactly an easy task!I had to laugh last night when he bounded down the stairs to tell me that I just had to buy him Fruit Loops! Now he knows that type of cereal is usually only allowed on his birthday but he insisted I should buy a box to improve his iron levels! Turns out a serving of Fruit Loops contains 50% of a person's daily iron need....seriously.I'm still not convinced that everything else in it outweighs it's iron…
  • Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins

    9 Jul 2014 | 6:48 am
    Versions of this recipe have been around for decades. The great thing about it is you can keep the batter in your fridge and bake up a fresh batch in the mornings for breakfast or after school for snacks. I've read you can keep it for up to 6 weeks! While I haven't tested that, I doubt they'd last that long just because they are sooo delicious and moist! To be honest, I usually bake up the whole batch and throw them in the freezer so we can grab these muffins anytime we're running out the door. They don't take long to thaw and are much healthier than a store bought muffin or processed…
  • Chickpea Ramen Noodle Salad

    5 Jul 2014 | 4:08 pm
    When I first moved out on my own, I was, like so many other students, broke...all the time. I remember having money to pay my rent but only enough left over to eat rice cakes and yogourt...for a month! When I had a bit more money I added instant ramen noodles to my grocery list! lol My roommates and I became masters of 101 ways to eat them - raw, as per the package,  with frozen peas, with ketchup (don't judge!) and sometimes with hamburger and tomato sauce (gourmet!). Fast forward a couple of decades and you'll still see the occasional package of these noodles in my pantry.

Late night lemon chicken takeout. Even just the smell of lemons is refreshing. And, seriously, what's better than watching a toddler's first bite of a lemon!These little bites of happiness won't make you pucker quite like those adorable toddlers but they will satisfy your intense desire for a zingy-tangy-sweet dessert.

  • Spiced Pickled Beets Recipe

    Gabriel Avila-Mooney
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:34 am
    I love beets. Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved them. I used to eat pickled beets with a fork right out of the can. That’s right, a can. My mother may have made some during her canning phase, but I mostly remember eating them from cheap, generic cans. So delicious. Usually I have some beets rolling around in the back of the fridge, or in a drawer somewhere. In colder seasons I would roast them, or steam them and toss with walnuts, Gorgonzola and balsamic vinegar for a rich and decadent salad. But lately in the summer heat I’ve been craving some cool pickled beets to top off…

It makes a hot dog, and when mixed with a bit of mayo and ketchup, it turns a simple burger into a deluxe surprise. I figured like all things processed and artificially preserved with modern chemistry miracles the fresh version would be even better. And I was right. Bright cucumber crunch and taste, sharp contrasts of mustard, ginger, vinegar and turmeric and that tangy delicious condiment is reinvented. Of course their are a million varieties to suite every mangles taste memory, but start here, you…

Summer means grilling for most people around here and I feel the same way. It’s the perfect time to celebrate the beautiful weather outside and share the bounty of our produce boxes with loved ones. I love grilling and indulging in delicious summer dishes as much as anyone, but at the same time, I am always thinking of ways to improve my health through diet and lifestyle.

That means its time for peach crisps, peach pie, peach ice cream and my new favorite – grilled peaches. Grilling peaches is easy. Hot grill, a little oil, peaches. Cut them in half, brush on some oil and sear them till they slightly soften. Excellent for chutneys, or as a sauce for duck or chicken, just toss with a bit of fresh ginger, some lemon juice, a dash or two of vinegar and boom. If you’re looking for a simple side…

    11 Jul 2014 | 2:59 pm
    I love adding vinegar to recipes and meals because it adds tanginess and flavor to excite my taste buds without adding loads of calories or tons of additives. Vinegar also contains anti-bacterial properties, but other nutritional benefits are not well known. More research is needed especially for apple cider vinegar. Important to note: Do not take apple cider vinegar as a daily supplement without speaking to your Doctor or Registered Dietitian. Taking vinegar on a daily basis as a supplement is an unproven treatment. But, for cooking–go right ahead and use it! Mizkan (company that…

  • Muesli: Easy, Quick, and Healthy Breakfast

    2 Jul 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Over the last year, I haven’t eaten much cereal at all because I was just tired of all the junk ingredients in most cereals. But, recently I started eating more muesli because I can create variety with it, and I get a balanced meal out of it. What is Muesli? The idea for muesli came from the Swiss and Germans. The base of muesli is just raw rolled oats like you would use for oatmeal (uncooked). Then, you combine the raw oats with other grains like barley or rye, and some nuts, seeds, and dried (or fresh) fruit–whatever you like! You take the dry ingredients, and you can soak them…

    There is this gluten free craze going around these days, and more and more people seem to be avoiding bread like it’s the devil. Bread is NOT bad. You just have to be selective about what you buy, and check your ingredients label. The key is to look for all whole grains, aka whole wheat, whole oat, whole rye, etc. No enriched flour which means plain old white flour. And look for as little additives as possible, meaning, you should be able to decipher the ingredients. Lastly, make sure the sugar content is not too high. Here are my picks for the healthiest breads: My Favorite Breads 1.

    A few weeks ago, when my son and I were shopping at Marshals’, he spotted popsicle makers. I’ve had popsicle molds before, but I had never seen the little makers. The one we picked out is made by Zoku. It’s pretty cool. You just freeze the little popsicle maker and then make popsicles in just a matter of minutes. It’s perfect for little ones with no patience.

  • Grilled Chicken and Tomatillo Tostada

    Lynne Webb
    20 Jul 2014 | 11:17 am
    Chicken tostadas generally call for either sliced avocado or guacamole to add a smooth, creamy element to the dish. We decided to mix things up a bit and use a sauce made from tangy tomatillos instead. Tomatillos quickly cook down to a thick, smooth sauce and their citrusy flavor offsets the spicy rub on the chicken quite nicely. As a shortcut, you can use pre-cooked chicken from the supermarket instead of grilling your own, but be sure to make your salsa fresh for best flavor. Get the full recipe →

    In 1840 Anne, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, started requesting tea, bread and cake at 4pm to stave off hunger until dinner, and soon after afternoon tea became a much-loved, quintessentially British tradition.

    There’s nothing like a bit of chocolate and little drops of chocolate are perfect to satisfy that craving. I don’t always eat dark chocolate and as such sometimes I like milk chocolate. Now, sometimes I eat “trashy” chocolate and sometimes I eat high quality chocolate. These drops are some of the best quality milk chocolate. If you want your kids to grow up with a taste for better things, this is what you want in your cupboard. These drops are a 43% milk chocolate (the 57% is sugar and milk powder) made with chocolate sourced from Venezuela criollo and trinitario beans. The…

    When I first thought there were chocolate covered wine gums, I was excited, then confused. I wondered how that would work but it didn’t matter. Chocolate covered Oreos I was also excited about but again I was wondering how it would work. The Oreos were tiny but that didn’t matter – I wanted chocolate. The Maynards actually was a bag of wine gums and chocolate buttons (including caramel ones) and some chocolate covered fudge bits. I do love wine gums and to be able to buy a bag which has a few wine gums, some chocolate and some fudge meant that I could have something different depending…
  • The Chocolate Library at Selfridges

    Where can you go to get some of the world’s rarest chocolate? Some of the weirdest chocolate? Chocolate made with camels’ milk? Chocolate from Hispanola beans? Chocolate from a batch run so small the labels are hand written? Selfridges No I mean it – Senfridges has now opened a chocolate library with one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of chocolate. Now, I was surprised to not see chocolate philanthropist Askinosie there given how much he does for the communities he works with but I gues Selfridges still has to work on their ethical chocolate selection. Thankfully they…
  • Ben & Jerry’s Greek Style Frozen Yogurt Reviewed

    15 Jul 2014 | 7:46 am
    Frozen Yogurt or FroYo first came to prominence in Canada during the mad rush to massively cut down on any and all fat. Sadly this was at the expense of added sugars but hey – live and learn, right? In the years since then, frozen yogurt has remained a firm frozen favourite among the dieting and non-dieting crowd as a flavour that is both slightly tangy and sweet. A summer treat with less guilt than the usual ice cream treat. Of course since the 80’s we have also come far in the development of sorbet, gelato, ice cream with fewer calories, quality froyo and more. Frozen desserts have…

    Sometimes we need an afternoon snack that is a little more than a granola bar.  I had some zucchini on hand and remembered a pizza I used to make with shredded zucchini as the crust.  I had an idea. I sliced the zucchini and used the “coins” as my crust for a quick snack the kiddos LOVED!  These will certainly be made again at our house.  I think, though, I’ll use mozzarella slices instead of shredded next time as it would be a bit easier.

    Chocolate is my BFF.  I love trying new recipes with that lovely ingredient. A friend knows this about me and shared a recipe for fudgy brownies.  Oh my goodness… I am in heaven.  I loved how they are all ingredients I always have on hand {although I guess that could be bad} and it only makes a 8×8 pan.  Just enough to enjoy, but not enough to eat too much. I am curious to try these with some variations – maybe some raspberry jam swirled in the batter.  The ideas could be endless. Cut the pieces small… these truly are fudgy!

    Anjali @ The Picky Eater
    19 Jul 2014 | 11:55 pm
    Fried rice has always been one of mine and the husband’s favorite Asian dishes. I usually avoid it at restaurants because it’s just full of fat, made with white rice (empty calories!) and is so easy to eat a ton of without even realizing it. I was convinced that I could make a healthier version of fried rice that still tasted as sinful as the original recipe. The husband was skeptical. But with a few secret swaps: tofu and edamame for the egg/meat traditionally used, and brown rice instead of white rice — this recipe turned out great! Thanks to the veggies, lean protein and…

    Photo courtesy of CookingLight The husband and I are both suckers for pumpkin or butternut squash ravioli. Whenever it appears on a restaurant menu we are all over it! It’s a great indulgence once in a while, but not always the healthiest option because most restaurants add a lot of extra butter or oil to the recipe and the ravioli is usually topped with a “brown butter sauce” or a “cheese sauce.” All delicious things for your tastebuds, but not so great for your waistline! I had always wanted to make ravioli from scratch at home, so when I found this recipe…

    One of my guilty pleasures is chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Whenever our family would go to Hawaii, we would literally bring back boxes of the stuff – and enjoy them for weeks after we got home. But the problem was, each tiny piece of chocolate was 50-80 calories (depending on the brand) — and it was so addicting you couldn’t stop at just one! I had never thought a healthier version was possible until I came across this recipe on Dr. Oz’s website. Made with just 5 ingredients, these truffles have zero added sugar but are still amazingly sweet and decadent!

Inspired by a recipe from CookingLight, I thought I’d create these easy-to-make weeknight flatbreads for dinner with, you guessed it: squash and corn for the toppings. I really wanted to use green onions like the original recipe suggests, but I left mine in the fridge too long and they were spoiled by the time I was ready to make this! So I substituted red onions instead, which I felt like still worked really well. Next time…

    Today's supper is for something lighter... a cheap supper dish whose main ingredient is mashed potato and tinned tuna.Of course, if you have a fish dish accompanied by potatoes you can mash the potatoes and then flake the fish to use the recipe below as the basis of a leftovers dish.The version I am presenting here is slightly more chefy than many other fish cakes you will see, but that just enhances the flavour and prevents them from being bland and boring. Indeed, I used this recipe to persuade my wife to make more roasted and poached fish, as she knew that the leftovers would be converted…
  • Baked Egg Custard Recipe

    A custard is essentially a blend of eggs and liquid, where the mixture is then either baked, simmered or microwave until the mixture thickens. The classic custard is made with eggs and milk or cream, but any liquid can be used and in the past this was made from a blend of nut milks and eggs.The ancient Romans were the first to write down the recipe for a custard and they enjoyed egg custards, flavoured with fish sauce as both an accompaniment and a dessert.Egg custards are so fundamental in cooking (many pies, all quiches and a number of desserts depend on them) that I am giving  a…

  • Marmalade Breakfast Muffins Recipe

    This recipe grew partially out of necessity and partially because I hate waste. Recently I bought a tin of marmalade, to try it out. But it was far too sweet and not bitter enough for my personal tastes. So, rather than throw it away, I decided to have a go at baking with it instead.The obvious thing to try was a muffin, and I decided to adapt a Christmas muffin recipe I had lying around for use with marmalade instead. To make up for the lack of bitterness I added lemon and grapefruit zest, prepared the batter and into the oven they went.About 18 minutes later the muffins were ready. I had…

    I have some good news from my second meeting this morning: I’m down another 1.8 pounds! I’ve lost 5.8 pounds total since my traumatic experience on the scale two weeks ago. (via) My Weight Watchers leader made a great point today. This is the 30th week of the year (where has this year gone, by the way?). So, that means there are 22 weeks left. At an average of a pound a week, it’s possible to lose at least 22 pounds by the end of the year. Small, consistent losses can really add up. So, in the spirit of the video I posted yesterday, I’ll continue focusing on the…

When I found out she was doing a TEDx talk earlier this year, I knew she’d share an inspiring message.

  • How I’ll Lose the Weight (And Why Failure is So Common)

    I’ve always hated admitting when I was on a diet. Only the people who would absolutely need to know would be told (my mom, my roommate, anyone I frequently had meals with). By telling people it not only meant that I was admitting I had a weight problem, but it also would let other people be aware when I inevitably failed. I have failed at losing weight more times than I can count. Once you have failed so many times at something, you accept that you will always fail. I knew that every diet, even when somewhat successful, would eventually result in failure. Once you have become a chronic…

    - Gluten-free chocolate chip peanut butter cookies never had it so good. - Some time back I was playing with a gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe that I’d developed over the years. I was happy with it, but I can’t help but get annoyed by the mixing of flours and the occasionally interjecting flavors of the standard array of gluten-free flours. There are some very good mixes on the market – and I’ve got a good recipe here, on my own site – but still, I often ache for gluten-free recipes that don’t require a lot of fuss. ...

  • California Strawberries: A Splendid Tour

    Stephanie Stiavetti
    20 Jun 2014 | 11:40 pm
    I’m a California girl born and bred, so god knows I’ve eaten probably 100 pounds of strawberries in my life. This state was made for strawberries, and every summer our farmers markets are filled with endless rows of glowing red berries, begging to be nibbled by every passer-by. You can’t set foot in this state without eating a strawberry. I think I read somewhere that it’s the law. Given my strawberry predilection, I was invited to attend a farm tour in Monterey to celebrate California Strawberries and all the farmers who sweat in the fields, tending their crimson…

    - Looking for a cool kiss of sweet tea on a hot day? - There’s a new tea in town, an exciting little hybrid that is brightening up my afternoons in the kitchen lately: Tetley’s Black and Green. Combining the best of both black and green teas, I’m loving it in both hot and cold drinks – but given the temperatures lately, I’m leaning towards any beverage with the word “iced” in it. Anyone who’s ever sat down to enjoy an iced tea on a hot day knows exactly how refreshing this classic drink is. The same goes for a hot cup of chai, which, it just so happens, finds a new lease…

  • Summer Scape Salsa

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:36 am
    Things we love about summer: Sun, Patio Drinking, Drive-Ins, Patio Drinking and Garlic Scapes. Garlic, in general, is a fave, but scapes are a magical summer treat. They come from the green tops of garlic (think scallions to an onion) and have a great mild garlic flavor that goes delish in almost any dish. This salsa gets a garlickly-tastic kick and a nice crunch along with the other fresh veggies for an even better texture. It’s almost like having roasted garlic without having to turn the stove on…which is a blessing in the summer heat! If you’re looking for a fresh and…

Let’s just be clear, at the bottom, there are details on how to win this cookbook. You may recognize the symptoms of being ‘that bacon person.’ You have links posted to your Facebook wall so often, that you’ve seen the same recipe three times from three different people. People continually ask “Do you have bacon in that?” or “Don’t you worry about eating so much bacon?”…
  • Whiskey Roasted Veggie Burger

    20 Apr 2014 | 2:14 am
    With all the bacon we consume, every now and then we like to do our hearts a favor and bulk up on the veggies. Though the idea of one of those cardboard tasting veggie burgers is less than desirable. So we revamped the veggie burger into a roasted stack of awesomeness.  These thick cut veggies roast up perfectly and make for an awesome meatless option. What you end up with is a mouth busting stack of smoky roasted veggies. The whiskey and oil mixture helps to keep the veggies moist at such a high temperature. You get a big messy burger without all the guilt of…well, a big messy burger.

    I’m at least 2 generations removed from the south, but somewhere along the line my mother still managed to instill in me a love of southern cuisine that’s so strong you’d swear I was from the land of Dixie. Lovingly fried chicken? Check. Grits & gravy? Check, check. Green beans with smoked hocks and a little hot water cornbread? Yes, please, and heaven help you if there isn’t a side of sliced fresh tomatoes on my plate. Heaven. Help. You. So you know I can’t ever let summer pass without sticking some fried green tomatoes into the mix. This is definitely…

    There’s nothing quite like a shift dress in the summer. It’s cool and comfortable, with a classic shape that can be dressed up or down as the occasion requires. I love that this one has texture to the fabric, for a little something extra, but the color is a blank slate that you can pair with anything.

  • Summer Corn Chowder

    This is a completely selfish meal. I say that because my boyfriend doesn’t care for corn but, sometimes I’ve just gotta be me and cook what makes me happy, even when I know he won’t even look at the meal other than to give it serious side eye. It’s worth his disdain, though, because summer corn is so fresh and sweet right now, and I feel like this soup is summer in a bowl. That may seem a bit odd to say about a hot soup. I mean, who eats hot soup in the summer, anyway? But there’s such an abundance of corn flavor, undiluted with any cream or milk. Instead of…

    If I could have it my way, we would be lighting the candles every Friday night.  Some wine, candles, a loaf of challah and good old fashioned tradition.  However, the problem many of us face with a huge loaf of challah is that there is often, at least half left over.  Mind you, it’s not because we couldn’t polish off the whole thing, but for obvious reasons that just can’t happen!  So….what to do?  Well, I don’t know if you are away…however….Challah based French Toast is one of the best things in this world.  Thick, egg-y & slightly sweet to the…
  • 6-Ingredient Glazed Chicken
    23 May 2014 | 11:16 am
    Boring chicken…nope, it doesn’t “fly” well with me!  I won’t do it…let alone cook it.  Now you don’t need much to make it taste great, basically just the proper cooking technique to ensure you captivate every drop of juice the chicken has to offer.  Today I decided to whip out the cast-iron skillet and crisp up the skin followed by baking it off until just perfectly cooked.  Now, if you don’t have cast iron skillet, any oven proof frying pan will do, however the cast iron is definitely worth the investment.  It creates a deep richness that was just…
  • Eggplant Parm Pile-Up
    13 May 2014 | 3:37 am
    As much as I try to teach the kids to be as neat as they can with dinner, sometimes it’s fun to get a little down and dirty.  Now what better food is there than “Eggplant” to take us there?  As a loyal eggplant lover, one of my favorite was to cook up the dish is crisp it up in a sizzling pan and then pile on lots of tomato sauce and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.  No need for the heavy mozzarella cheese; a dollop of ricotta is all you need.  YUM!!! “EGGPLANT PARM PILE-UP” INGREDIENTS • 2 eggs beaten • 2 cups whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs • 1 cup of…

    Summer’s almost over! Booooo But, it’s still here. Right? So we can still celebrate the sunshine and all its glory. And since we’re all adults here and I am sure some of you are in dire need of some relaxing adult time, I’m going to share with you a brand new drink I created.  True story, I came up with this quite by accident. Some time ago husband and I purchased some of the Outshine bars from Edy’s. They were on sale 3 for $10. I felt that was a good deal because they are a fairly healthy option compared to some other ice cream treats. I love Edy’s ice…
  • Farmers Market Finds {3} : Cooking Demo

    18 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    We made another trip to the Flint Farmers Market. A few weeks ago we weren’t able to make it and we stopped by the one in Grand Blanc. It was more of an arts and crafts fair and I was extremely disappointed. It was outside on a street that had been blocked off. It was just about the length of that block. Not big at all. Then, the Flint one was closed so they could move to their building. Husband and I went the first day they were in and it was a giant cluster and it wasn’t even the technical grand opening party. We could barely get through and it was so frustrating. I spent some…

I’m not a fan of runny eggs in any way, shape, or form.  Sometimes I am a nice pet mom and give the girls (Tink and Casey) a treat. My cooking companions: Tink and Casey I also try to keep my calories in check. From time to time I’ll whip some egg whites with one egg and give the girls each a yolk.  Don’t get me started on the cheese.

I’ll be writing a detailed post about how a baptism is performed in the [Greek] orthodox faith next week, so lookout for that. Let’s just say, yes, olive oil is involved. After the baptism, my parents hosted everyone back at their house for lunch. Naturally, Greek food was on hand – pastitsio for everyone. Since we knew a good amount of people would be there, both Jane and I wanted to make a snack people would enjoy. She suggested…

    This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It is a labor of love. The results just might be the best rice pudding you’ve had (disclaimer: our humble opinion). For those of you that don’t know, in addition to running this blog, Jane and I are the “Greek Food Experts” over at I use the term in quotations since that’s what we’re called, but can one ever really become an expert at something? One of the biggest request we’ve gotten between both sites is this recipe. Greek Rice pudding, in Greek – Rizogalo – Ρυζόγαλο, is something we’d never wanted to…

    Want to eat like the Ancient Greeks? Well, with today’s recipe, you’ll have that opportunity. Pasteli (Παστέλι) might be one of the easiest Ancient Greek recipes you can make and one that is still eaten by countless Greeks all around the world. It’s made pretty much the same way, yet you may find it with different types of nuts – we added pistachios to mix it up a bit. We know that sesame seeds have been known to the Ancient Greeks for along time. The Linear B tablets (a syllabic script that was written in Mycenaean Greek), which date back to around 1450 BC, actually…

But this isn’t your typical meal that was served to us when we were little. The authors have literally taken everything to the next level. They have some really crazy recipes in the book, so if you’re a fan of innovative mac and cheese meals, it’s a must get. We found a Greek inspired one in the book and decided to make it for the site, customizing it a bit, to fit our preference. Needless to say, it was so…

    New Orleans is a place for storytellers.  Ask anyone there, or even one outside of the city who simply loves it, and they’ll have some anecdote for you about the Crescent City.  The story can be about the food, the music, or the culture.  It can be a comedy, a tragedy, or an autobiography filled with fantasy, drama, and history.  But one thing you’ll undoubtedly hear in all the stories, for better or worse, is what New Orleans is really about.

  • How Do You Red Bean, RAY “DR. RACKLE” WILLIAMS?

    The word “griot” (gree-oh) comes from West African tribes and is a member of a group of traveling poets, musicians, or storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history. They entertain with stories, poems, songs, and dance. A teacher of sorts. Raymond Williams was born and raised in New Orleans. He started playing the trumpet at an early age after hearing neigbors playing while in his backyard. His grandfather showed him how to get a sound. His school bands, brass bands and studying under Ellis Marsalis at the New Orleans Center of Creative Arts helped him carry on the…

    New Orleans has a huge bond with its food, unlike any other place in America.  The connection goes back hundreds of years.  Recipes and cooking methods have been passed down for generations.  The greatest cooks were taught by mothers, grandparents or other close relatives right in their own kitchen.  Family recipes were tightly guarded and it was lucky to have a written copy of the list of ingredients for the next generation. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and flooded the homes of thousands.  It sent many New Orleanians all over the United States.  Many of the…

    From the end of April until the beginning of October, our grill doesn’t get much rest. We love cookouts with friends or even just grilling up some dinner for the two of us. And one of my favorite dishes is grilled chicken. I really love chicken in general, actually. (Try this OMG Sour Cream Chicken recipe if it’s too rainy or cold for grilling wherever you live.) I’m always on the hunt for new chicken marinades that are perfect for grilling, and I think I have a new favorite! I mean, look at those awesome grill marks and the beautiful color.

And if it gets a lemon glaze, the lemon flavor’s a little too tart. I like to have a balanced flavor. With blueberries getting ripe here in Pennsylvania, I started looking for some new recipes to use the blueberries.

    I’ve been wanted to try out this recipe for some time now and I finally got around to it over the weekend – it was a huge success… well, for me and Laura at least. One thing I’d say with this recipe is that it makes a lot of burgers. With the measurements below it’ll create at least 10 big burgers. Just reduce the amount of quinoa and black beans that you use if you want to make less. We also made a tomato salsa to go with the burgers as it adds a lovely kick to the meal. Even though Laura hates it, I love a big dollop of mayonnaise on them as well! If you love…
  • Mediterranean Fish Stew

    19 Jul 2014 | 6:25 am
    Fish stews are awesome winter meals to make, but considering we’re deep into the summer, I thought I’d add a bit of sunshine to the dish. In terms of the fish that you add into this recipe, you can be pretty flexible. Next time I make this I’ll add in some prawns and maybe some quid, so give that a try. Another thing worth mentioning is that this a great dish to make when you’ve got a load of friends or family around. You can cook it all up in one big pot and let everyone help themselves. Just grill some fresh ciabatta drizzled in olive oil and you’ve got the…

    Jam tarts are a brilliant and simple little sweet treat and you can customise by using whatever jam you want. I personally love a good strawberry or blackberry conserve, with a high fruit content. Matt is a big fan of the lemon curd tarts and making your own lemon curd is so easy and tasty, you’ll never use shop-bought again. This recipe makes around 12 jam tarts which you’ll  get through in no time! Just remember to let the tarts cool before you take your first bite, as a burnt tongue will definitely ruin your jam tart fun! Jam and Lemon Curd Tarts Prep Time: 45 minutesCook Time: 15…

To be honest, you could actually make these crab cakes fairly easily without the use of a processor, but it just makes it a lot simpler and quicker with one. When it comes to serving up the crab cakes, we just made some simple sticky rice using arborio rice, a squeeze of lemon and some chopped fresh chilli. To be honest, you could serve these up with a ton of different things. One idea would be with a fresh oriental salad, dressed with sesame oil, another…

  • Raspberry Cream Cheese Brownie Cake

    I Eat Therefore I Cook
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:25 pm
    This cake sounds super rich, but it really isn’t.  The brownie cake is made with greek yogurt, so there is no oil or fat in the brownie.  The cream cheese is reduced fat and all that is left is the raspberries. The combo of flavors is a moist  chocolaty brownie with tangy cream cheese with tart raspberries. Make the brownie batter (from mix, yay!) and pour it into a pie plate. Add dollops of whipped cream cheese spread on top of the brownie mixture. With a skewer or anything sharp, swirl the cream cheese into the batter until evenly mixed. Place the raspberries in concentric circles.

    Sometimes when I come up with recipes, the boyfriend looks at me like, are you crazy? When I was spit balling this recipe with him he was very skeptical. But when you see his eyes light up as he starts eating a meal, you know I am onto something.  Tonkatsu is a Japanese pork cutlet. The cutlet is pan fried and then baked in the oven. The relish adds a bright sweet, spicy and tangy flavor to the pork. Pound out the pork cutlet between two sheets of plastic wrap to reduce splatters. The pork should become about 1/4 inch thick. Make your assembly line to bread the pork. Flour first, then egg…

    This is one of my favorite comfort foods. It also doesn’t hurt that it is super quick to make. I made this quite a bit in college as well as it is a crowd-pleaser. The key here is to make sure the shrimp is cooked properly. Do not overcook the shrimp! They will taste like rubber. I have step by step pictures to help you make sure that this is a great pasta dish. Clean and season the shrimp with salt, pepper and lemon herb old bay seasoning. Start to caramelize the onions in the frying pan and then add the shrimp directly on top. The shrimp should take no more than 30 seconds per side.

  • Stone Apple Sharbat

    12 Jul 2014 | 2:26 am
    Stone Apple Juice Although, it might seem that monsoon has finally hit this part of the world and it’s even very tantalizing to think so (taking cue from the downpour in the last couple of days), the truth is, it’s the summer that seems to not want to leave us entirely. Well, that’s what I felt when I returned home the other day, tired and completely drained, each vein in my body craving for a refreshing drink and that is the moment, I tell you, (the moment when I came into the living room and dumped my lifeless limp of a body into the sofa, to be precise) is precisely the moment when I…

  • How To Make Your Own Yogurt + Use It In 12 Recipes

    Talia Ralph
    23 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Yogurt is the unsung hero of the fridge. It's a cool balance to spicy cuisines, a reliable on-the-go breakfast, and home to all sorts of healthy bacteria. Greek, spiced, whipped, or frozen, yogurt is a dairy product of many talents -- a Renaissance ingredient. Sadly, poor yogurt gets the processed treatment all too often. Putting it in tubes? Packing it with sugar and food coloring? Why? Don't put your yogurt through that when it's so simple (and so delicious) to make at home. While you're at it, double the batch and use it in as many of these recipes as you'd like. More: Our DIY kits include…

    Congratulations to lorinarlock, whose Bacon-Stuffed Burgers with Pimento Cheese and Avocado won the contest for Your Best Burger Recipe!  Describe an early food experience that has influenced the way you think about food and/or cooking.The first thing that comes to mind is a cucumber salad I ate in Thailand. It was nothing more than sliced cucumbers in a very subtle vinegar sauce, but it was so light and refreshing that I think of it every summer when cucumbers are in season. That simple salad taught me about the importance of enjoying the pure flavor of a single ingredient, which has…

Grab a bottle of rosé and join them! 1. A couple of cases of rosé. We go for price (about $10), color (the palest blush), and find that we prefer quaffable wine from Côte de Provence. There, the locals buy bottles for about $4.50 (which is about the same price as a bottle of Perrier!), so they drink it like water.2. Canal House Fried Chicken, hot or cold.

  • Crustless Spinach, Prosciutto and Mushroom Quiche

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Real men don’t eat quiche, they eat smoked bacon and egg pie! Well, I’d say quiche isn’t much different. The name itself originated from Germany (the word ‘quiche’ is derived from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake) and was later called ‘Lorraine’ or ‘quiche Lorraine’ by the French. Although by definition, a quiche must be in a crust, it isn’t necessary, as demonstrated with this mouth-watering variation with spinach, prosciutto and mushrooms. The beauty of quiche is that you can virtually put anything you like in it and it’s delicious whether served for breakfast,…
  • Pesto Genovese Pasta

    20 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    My friend Magali writes that the weather is been rather chilly in Geneva and so she has been enjoying lots of pasta. Yes, don’t we all do that? Cold day, forget a salad, let’s go for something a little more heartwarming and satisfying? How else do we live with the fact that it’s July and still cloudy and 20 degrees? Okay, I am still jealous that Geneva has considerably better weather than here in the north. I have asked myself many of time, you left Canada for this? Okay, what chills me out a bit is the satisfaction of knowing that Vancouver has more rainfall then Hamburg and Munich…
  • Quinoa Salad with Peas, Asparagus, and Fava Beans

    18 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    This is a salad that can easily be served as a main or as a side – you can also skip the quinoa all together and just serve the veggies alongside grilled chicken or fish. As you like. The combination of these three green vegetable – peas, asparagus and fava beans (also widely known as broad beans), plus a little Belgium endive makes for a pretty great taste-bud-flavor-party. Along with a zingy dressing and a morsel of deliciously complex, and sophisticated prosciutto. A delicious quinoa salad and a great night had by all! When using fresh fava beans, they need to be removed from their…
  • Pasta with Spinach, Mushrooms and Fresh Herbs in a Gorgonzola Sauce

    16 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    This pasta dish is inspired by a pizza that I quite often used to make for myself. I remember this phase well. I constantly had a hankering for wild mushrooms, gorgonzola and spinach. Something I secretly enjoyed when I had evenings on my own. Yes, we all have people in our lives that have a distain for stinky, moldy cheese. Mmmm, and how I love the combination. Not wanting to go through all the effort of making a pizza dough, I decided to give it a try with pasta. The result is a quick and deliciously rich dish delivered in less than 20 minutes. I use fresh thyme and marjoram as I think the…
  • Apple and Fennel Salad

    14 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Ever since I discovered how delicious fennel is I have been adding it my salads pretty much every other day. Okay, it’s not a secret that I absolutely love and live on bowls of raw yumminess. I’ll never tire of salads, especially with fruit in them – a little obsession of mine. Apples and fennel. A classic combo – they pair well together raw, baked, and EVEN juiced! This salad is probably not new to anyone. I think it’s about as customary as good ole’ coleslaw, with all variations in between. Still, it’s one of my summer favorites. Crisp and refreshing. Not everyone…
