And, related to the release, there are a number of events in the works.

    A Year of Slow Cooking

    I made a whole chicken yesterday in the slow cooker, and it turned out really well. We had some tomatoes that needed to get used up before they turned into pasta sauce, and I threw them on top of the bird while it slow-cooked. I loved the end result: a moist, flavorful chicken with gooey packed-with-flavor tomatoes. For an added bonus, you can save the crock drippings to make steamed rice. The

  • Broiled Saffron Dates

    If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates. They take only slightly more effort to make than placing dates unadorned on a plate. And, there must be something unusually captivating about them because people always ask me how to make them. I think the idea stems from a flight I took years ago from San Francisco to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was sitting next to a young man, dressed head to toe in hemp, on his way to a spiritual retreat. :) We started chatting, and he offered me a date from little plastic baggie. He proceeded to tell me the dates were an…

    Onigiri are so cute! I make these little on-the-go rice balls all the time with leftover rice, and whatever fillings and seasonings are convenient and on hand. You can make them any shape you like, sometimes I'll use damp (lightly salted) hands, other times press them into a mold, for more precision shaping. I think the key is to avoid fussing, or trying to make them too perfect. I posted a photo of these super-onigiri to Instagram the other day - without the recipe. Apologies! I'll try to make good here. These are made with leftover sprouted brown rice and cooked mung beans. They're filled…
  • Thai Zucchini Soup

    My intent here was to make a chilled, pureed, Thai curry soup. It would be summery and refreshing, and at the same time, strong with green curry flavor. It would be a fantastic lunch. As you can see from the photos, that is not what happened. Instead, I ended up with a chunky zucchini soup, beautifully spiced with a thin, bright, assertive coconut-lime curry broth. And it was better than the soup I'd originally imagined. Here's why. The best cooks I know are flexible, observant, adaptable, and resourceful - qualities I try to bring with me when I enter my own kitchen. I went to make lunch,…

It was all over the internet and getting rave reviews.  At that time our internet was very poor and dropped out if you just looked at it, so I found it hard to load the posts from Ree’s website.  Still, I bought the book, flicked through it, and that was that.  A few years later, after seeing Ree on her foodnetwork show I decided to start cooking some of her recipes….

    This is a recipe I developed more than 10 years ago, but it's still a great one for this time of the year, when fresh corn is available (though you can make it with frozen sweet corn kernels, of course).  It's an easy make-ahead main dish for a company dinner, colorful and delicious, but it makes an elegant brunch dish as well. The components of the dish, the "ricotta", vegan Bechamel, and crepes can be made well ahead of time, and the sauce (Coulis) can be made early in the day and reheated-- and the Coulis is the easiest sauce in the world to make. The crepes can be frozen well before…

    A few days ago I was craving "Torta"-- an Italian savory vegetable tart. or pie made with olive oil pastry and common all over Italy. This type of pie is especially common in the Italian province of Liguria, on the Italian Riviera, where my paternal grandmother’s family originated. It’s a large, thin double-crusted tart baked on a pizza pan. The thin olive oil dough (a little different from the olive oil pastry I used for a fruit pie here) is surprisingly pliable and easy to work with.Though now considered a gourmet treat, torte were born of necessity—in earlier times wheat was…

It's called Italian-Style Potato & Escarole Soup, but the recipe notes add that broccoli rabe (rapini) can be used instead of the escarole-- just the thing to use half of the big bunch of rapini in my fridge.This veggie-full soup is easy to make and so delicious!  We're having it for dinner tonight.  You can access the recipe from Nava's website here.

(I must confess, though, that I haven't made very recipes out of it due to all the nuts required-- a bit too rich for our way of eating, and I lack the space to air-dry cheeses--but I love her easy Meltable Mozzarella recipe!) In any case, I've been following Miyoko since her first book, "The Now and Zen Epicure" (now out of print) was published in 1991, and I…

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:35 pm
    Have you ever heard of a “shrub” (as in drink, not bush)? It’s basically a vinegar-based fruity cordial or soda. The acidity of the vinegar provides tang and intensifies the flavor of the fruit in much the same way that the acidity of lemons balances the sugar in lemonade, and makes lemonade taste so lemony. Vinegar allows you to make a soda with fruit, without it being cloyingly sweet. With this cucumber mint soda, first you make a simple syrup with water, sugar, and vinegar. Then you infuse the vinegar simple syrup with fresh mint leaves. To make the soda, you pour the…

The fishing rod I did have came with its own reel, and was the type with which you used a little bobbing float, and a hook to attach something wriggly. Hapless in the fishing department, I eventually gifted my gear to my younger brother, and stuck to collecting crawdads, tadpoles, and minnows. Over the years my brother regularly brought home trout (usually steelhead), salmon, and assorted other fish he caught in the American River, a short walk from our…

  • Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

    27 Jun 2015 | 8:20 pm
    Flank steak is a lean, somewhat tough but flavorful cut of beef that benefits from the tenderizing effects of a marinade. It is best cooked medium rare and thinly sliced at an angle across the grain of the meat. Prepared this way, marinated, cooked quickly at high heat, thinly sliced, flank steak practically melts in your mouth. This recipe calls for grilling the steak, but if you don’t have a grill, you can prepare the steak on a large cast iron frying pan as well. Continue reading "Grilled Marinated Flank Steak" »

  • Alabama-Style White BBQ Sauce – An Almost Labor-Free Sauce for Your Labor Day Grill

    4 Sep 2015 | 10:02 am
    This incredibly easy to make Alabama white barbecue sauce was invented in 1925 by Robert “Big Bob” Gibson at Big Bob Gibson's Bar-B-Q restaurant, in Decatur. When I first read this bit of culinary history, I had to smile, since I actually know the guy. Well, sort of. I’ve been to two bbq “boot camps,” run by champion pitmaster Chris Lilly, who trained under a guy, who trained under Big Bob Gibson. Hey, that’s only three degrees of separation. Ironically, Chris never made, or used the white sauce on anything we cooked, but still, I know a guy, who knew a guy, who knew THE guy.Some…
  • Pork Chili Verde (Green Pork Chili) – Green and Sometimes Browned

    1 Sep 2015 | 1:39 pm
    As I mentioned in the intro, this chili verde was one of the first recipes I ever learned, and also one of the first times I was forced to question proper culinary technique. Having just learned the importance of browning meats in culinary school, I was, at the same time, working for a chef who rarely did.  Whether it was pork, chicken, or beef, he simply cut up the meat, threw it in a pot with the rest of the ingredients, and simmered everything until tender. By the way, he claimed that he had learned how to cook these recipes while traveling through Mexico. I remember sheepishly asking…

  • Billionaire’s Franks & Beans – Welcome to the Top 1% of Comfort Foods

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:20 am
    Maybe it’s the billionaire(s) in the news lately, but for some reason I decided to take one of America’s most frugal meals, franks and beans, and give it a high-end makeover. Besides, all the other classic comfort foods have been fancified, hipsterized, and/or molecular gastronomized; so I figured I would take this one down. And by down, I mean up. Usually, franks and beans is made by opening up a couple cans of baked beans, and heating it up with some sliced hotdogs. Not exactly something you’d serve to visiting dignitaries. However, by adding some fresh veggies, plain beans, and…
  • How to Make Fresh Spring Rolls – Authentic is as Authentic Does

    Based on the YouTube comments appearing under the newly posted spring rolls video, lots of people missed the part about this not trying to be a specific recipe, but simply a demo featuring the magic that is damp, rice paper wrappers. Don’t get me wrong; I love the “authentic” spring rolls I so often order at my friendly, neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant. Loaded with sweet shrimp, and bursting with vermicelli noodles, they are among the most delicious things ever invented. However, I do reserve the right to soak rice paper wrappers in water, and… (I hope you’re sitting down for…

The city boy said he had just received a new pair of boots for his birthday, and he brought his old pair for his cousin to have. They were beat up and old, but the little farm boy tried them on, and they were just the perfect fit, and he would be proud as a peacock to have those old boots.

  • Emergency Preparedness: Meals in Bags

Meals in bags don't require refrigeration, so they are perfect for those times. These types of meals are good for taking on camping trips, too, so that you have everything you need for a meal in one place.One especially interesting way to do this is to use a vacuum storage unitto put everything you need for a meal in a bag and seal it.

When we got there, we were starving, a little road weary and very, very thirsty.  My mother had planned to…

Whether in life or in my kitchen at home, I expect things to happen just the way they always have. Hmm..if only wishes were horses… The fact of the matter is that nothing is ever certain and life gives you strange surprise when you least expect from it. Back then, I was too vulnerable to react to such unexpected surprises in life. I am probably a little more casual and fun-loving now, I don’t sulk or get…

The only time when I needed to make a so called ‘plan’ was when I had to visit the grocery store, my doctor’s clinic, parents meet at school, activity classes for kids or to deposit cheques in the bank. Life has suddenly become very fast and busy with a sudden spur of activities over the last few years. The life which seems to stretch out forever, zips on by..days…

    It all started with scribbling recipes and struggling to click good food photos for Lite Bite, seven years back. And now I feel really lucky enough to stumble on a way of life that I not only like, but love to live. There are three completed food photo-shoot assignments which are pending to be written about on Lite Bite. But I could not resist to pen down the experience and all the fun that went into yesterdays’ shoot for ‘The Park Hyatt’ with Kunal Daswani. The photo-shoot was finalized after a couple of meets and exchange of mails between the Ad agency (Rubecon), client,…

    Mix things up at your Labor Day barbecue with this refreshing cantaloupe salsa, brought to you in partnership with Food Should Taste Good! The other night, we decided to try a new-to-us Mexican place for dinner. The menu was incredible – we had fried oysters with habanero glaze, cornmeal-crusted avocado tacos, and the most amazing pinto beans I’ve ever tasted. I didn’t have the opportunity to try it, but I was also really intrigued by the cantaloupe gazpacho that they were serving that night.

There is something quite idyllic about sitting by the sea, listening to the waves lapping onto the shore and nibbling at your mezes whilst slowly sipping your drink!The word meze came from the same Turkish word, which in turn came from the Persian word maze, meaning 'taste, flavour, smack, relish'.Dolmades (Stuffed Grape Leaves)TzatzikiEggplant Dip (Melitzanosalata)Melitzanosalata…

  • Bread and Kale Gnocchi

    Pots and Frills
    2 Sep 2015 | 6:19 pm
    During my recent vacations in Poland I did not cook at all but ate a lot. I enjoyed Polish food and most of all Polish bread. I think we have one of the best breads in the world and the richest variety of it.In any Polish home it is almost religious to have plenty of bread in a bread box. But, because we are so obsessed with bread, we often buy too much of it. Then, on the next day, we cannot resist buying a new batch straight from the bakery, fresh and warm and this way we repeatedly end up with significant amounts of old bread which, although still good on the next day, cannot compete with…

    Crostata is a type of Italian, rustic pie or tart. It is very easy to make, does not require any special baking pan or skills. I make mine in a food processor, which is even easier. There are many crostata doughs. I have been often experimenting with a basic crostata base adding different types of flour or nuts and trying it with different toppings. Crostata can be made with almost any seasonal fruit. Even those most juicy once like blueberries or raspberries are good since you can always add extra flour to absorb the juice. Peach crostata made with local peaches has recently become my…
  • Cauliflower in a Herbs and Mustard Sauce

    21 Jun 2015 | 6:55 pm
    When I am in Poland I like my cauliflower to be cooked and served in a traditional Polish way, sprinkled with fried breadcrumbs and accompanied by a tomato and onion salad. But this dish tastes best in Poland where cauliflower and tomatoes taste different than here. So whenever I make a cauliflower here, I am always looking for a recipe that is not similar to that Polish dish. Since this is a high season for a locally grown cauliflower I have been buying it more often at my local farmers market. Besides the traditional white ones, now they also come in yellow and purple varieties, which look…

    I found very similar recipes for this cream in both Italian and French cuisine books. They seemed rather simple to make, especially if you are familiar with the bain marie method, and looked very delicious. Both recipes called for almost the same ingredients although the Italian was richer because of the heavy whipping cream, and the French was richer in eggs but lighter on cream. Just by reading of all the nice ingredients of this recipe I imagined that it could taste really nice so recently, when I bought a big chunk of genuine Italian Parmesan, I thought it was good time to experiment with…
  • Lemon-Wine Mousse with Berries

    31 May 2015 | 6:03 am
    This light mousse is a perfect dessert for hot days. Very light and not too sour but, at the same time, almost spicy from the wine, this mousse can be served alone just with a delicate cookie. It can be also served with any berries. It goes great with strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries, or all of them mixed together. I made it this mousse last week and finished it with sweet raspberries and blueberries. Wherever they come from, they are now at their best in our region and their taste and sweetness go nicely with the tartness of the mousse. Lemon-Wine Mousse with Berries(Six servings)…

No stirring means you have time to get on with other things - at the moment this means mopping my muddy floors! I'm sure the weather will get better once the kids go back to School.The kids aren't that keen on spinach so I only added a small handful - it would quite happily take a lot more.

  • Apple Cheddar Biscuits + Updated Bacon Jam

    Brandon Matzek
    1 Sep 2015 | 7:48 am
    Tender, golden biscuits infused with aged cheddar, apple and onion with sweet and smokey bacon jam on the side. To me, this is a plate of pure happiness. I first made these biscuits (sans apple) two years ago while preparing a southern-inspired dinner for the boyfriend. The menu consisted of brined and breaded pork chops and collards cooked in bacon fat. To round out the plate, I decided to make buttermilk biscuits flavored with items I had in the fridge: sharp cheddar and scallions.  After some quick prep (one bowl) and brief trip to the oven, the hot, cheese-laced drop biscuits were on…
  • Cold Steeped Vanilla Mezcal Ice Cream Recipe

    Brandon Matzek
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:01 am
    You guys.  This ice cream.  I can’t even.  But I will, so let’s dive in. Cold brew coffee is big right now.  I had my first cold brew at Blue Bottle in San Francisco a few years ago, and I loved every drop of it.  The idea behind the cold brew process is that the ground beans sit in cold water for a longer period of time until the flavors leach out into the water.  The resulting cold brew coffee has a sweeter, more complex taste, because heat was not used to extract flavor.  I recently learned that you can apply a similar technique to the ice cream making process.

Today, I’m sharing my last summer cocktail recipe, El Guapo, a spirited mix of white tequila, bitters, lime juice, salt and Spiced Vanilla Syrup.  I’ve been seriously drinking these on the daily since I finalized the recipe several weeks ago.  Each sip is bright and refreshing with a complex sweetness from the syrup.  A perfect libation for a weekend gathering with friends, or a post-work happy hour (that’s when I’ve been drinking them!).  In a few weeks, I’m sure I’ll be…

    Games and Activities - Harry Potter Birthday PartyDon't you love those Quidditch brooms! Originally, they were just for the Quidditch game we had planned for the back yard but then we had the brilliant idea to turn them into a craft too.The brooms were only $3 each and we also bought duct tape in a variety of colours and patterns. We set up the broom station in the backyard. The kids decorated their Quidditch brooms by simply wrapping as much or as little tape as they wanted. We also had a bunch of permanent markers in case they wanted to write Nimbus 2000 on it. They loved it! They took them…
  • Quick and Easy Chicken Pot Pie

    14 Aug 2015 | 8:31 am
    As much as I enjoy making my own stock, pie crusts from scratch and fresh farmers market veggies, there are times when I just don't have the time...or motivation, or time or desire or time to make a pot pie from scratch! This is especially true in the heat of the summer. So when my daughter asked for chicken pot pie for dinner, I wanted to say no, how about ... pretty much anything else. Instead, I went the quick and easy route - store bought rotisserie chicken, store bought pie crust, some fresh and some frozen veggies, and even gravy from a package. I know, some of you stopped reading…

    Start at the beginning here. It describes the beginning of our daughter's 11th birthday party - Harry Potter themed obviously!

If you have an idea of the type of things you'll need, you'll be able to find good prices on things as you're out and about in daily life instead of panicking at the last minute before the party! That's how I found the owls for the Owlery and potion jars.This post will cover our decorations for our King's Cross Station, the Portrait Hall, the Gryffindor Common Room, the Owlery, Potions…

  • A Lighter Waldorf Salad

    Guest Blogger
    4 Sep 2015 | 10:13 am
    When I was growing up and the occasion called for a “fancy salad,” one of my aunts made Waldorf salad. My dad would joke that we had to extend our pinkies while we ate it. Unfortunately, I was a mayo-hating child and cannot tell you if it was delicious. My childhood anti-mayo stage is long over, and though I like to slather mayo on a BLT, I tend to not eat it because of the fat calories. Greek yogurt works beautifully to provide the luscious silken texture of mayo, plus you get your choice of fat levels. The following salad works well with 0%, 2% or full-fat Greek yogurt. It’s…
  • Savory Sweet Corn Chowder

    I know that it’s technically still summer, but the past few days of cool weather have offered pleasant relief from the record breaking temperatures we’ve endured for the past few months. In fact, as I type this, it is gently drizzling ooutside and I’m nice and cozy in my wool socks and slippers. It’s weather like this that gets me thinking about the comfort foods of winter and that’s how I came across this recipe. Like most chowders, this is a dairy-based soup with milk, cream and potatoes. But this recipe uses fresh sweet corn to add texture and maximize flavor.
  • Why Carbs are not the Bad Guy

    Guest Blogger
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:23 am
    For too many years, the media has sold us the virtues of a low-carb (or no-carb) diet, promising excellent weight loss results if we stick mainly to meat and other low-glucose protein sources. However, recent studies have shown that if there is one diet that promotes lasting cardiovascular health and a healthy weight, this is surely the Mediterranean diet, which relies mainly on health, seasonal fruits and vegetables, healthy fats (such as extra-virgin olive oil and Omega-3-rich fatty fish such as wild salmon and tuna), and whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, legumes and herbs and spices.

    Anjali @ The Picky Eater
    2 Sep 2015 | 8:18 pm
    I’m celebrating summer with this gorgeous fruit salad today. It’s drizzled with a light honey-orange sauce, which makes it completely irresistible, so much so that it tastes like dessert. So simple to make, and you can use any fruits you like: apples, pears, berries, grapes, melons – the works! I chose berries, small and sweet mandarin oranges, and a dash of green grapes for a little more sweetness. I love how everything in this salad ends up about the same size, which makes it just right for savoring every bite. It’s absolutely perfect: for brunch, for celebrating a…
  • Chunky and Hearty White Bean Soup

    Beans are nutritional powerhouses. Not only are they a great, lean source of vegetarian protein, but they provide a myriad of health benefits, and they fit into several different food groups: They’re rich in complex carbs like whole grains… They’re full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants like veggies… and They’re high in protein like meat I literally try to eat beans once a day in some form or another, because of 5 reasons: #1 | They’re Heart Healthy. The high amounts of soluble fiber in beans help lower bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  • Blueberry Banana Blast Smoothie

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:47 pm
    Summer is the perfect time for smoothies. I remember when I was a kid, my mom would make strawberry-banana “milkshake desserts” in the summer. I had no idea that they were just strawberries, bananas, a bit of plain yogurt, and ice – no milk or sugar actually involved! But thanks to the creaminess from the yogurt and sweetness from the banana, it tasted just like a milkshake. This recipe takes inspiration from my mom’s healthy tricks from my childhood. This smoothie packs an antioxidant punch from the frozen wild blueberries and spinach (or kale – your choice!),…
  • The Milky Way Index: How Much Sugar Is In Your Food?

    Anjali @ The Picky Eater
    19 Jul 2015 | 2:55 pm
    The husband was drinking a glass of orange juice a few days ago when he turned to me and asked “Is juice bad for you?” I said, “Yeah, it is – because it’s basically full of sugar.” And he said, “What do you mean ‘full of sugar?'” And the nutritionist in me started listing facts: “Well, the average man is only supposed to eat 36g of added sugar a day. And that juice has 28g of sugar for an 8oz glass, and you’re drinking a 12oz glass, so that means you’ve basically eaten more than the amount of added sugar you should have…
  • Greek “Nachos” with Baked Chickpeas

    Anjali @ The Picky Eater
    17 Jul 2015 | 3:24 pm
    I’m obsessed with Greek food right now. Maybe it’s because some of the key ingredients in Greek cuisine: cucumbers, yogurt, and tomatoes are cooling and perfect in the summertime. Or maybe it’s because I’m always looking for ways to use chickpeas and beans to amp up the texture and protein in my recipes. Either way, when I saw this recipe for baked chickpeas as a topping for Greek “Nachos” – I knew I had to try it out! Crispy homemade pita chips topped with creamy, warm, baked chickpeas, a homemade cucumber-tomato relish, and a drizzle of lemony…

    I’ve been wanting for months to share with you this recipe but I thought I’d wait until the days got a little cooler and turning on the oven to bake a handful of potatoes wouldn’t be such an ordeal. Well, folks, we’re just a two days shy of Fall. It’s soup season, ya’all! Here now, the Ultimate Baked Potato Soup! Loaded with potato chunks, bacon bits, shredded cheese, green onions and sour cream, soup can’t get any better than this. As you can see from the ingredient list, this is a sinful bowl of goodness.

    With record high temperatures in our neck of the woods, just the thought of turning on the oven to prepare a hot meal makes me want to crawl jump out of my skin. This berry chicken and spinach salad with honey mustard dressing has been one of our quick and easy go-to meals on these miserably hot summer days.

  • Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salad

    29 Aug 2015 | 3:45 pm
    My peeps, I must love you a whole lot. ‘Cause you know, yesterday was the hottest day of summer (103 F!) and I valiantly stood under the fiery afternoon sun, by a burning charcoal pit to grill some fresh corn cobs and peppers so I could bring you this roasted corn and black bean salad. Alright, alright. Maybe I wasn’t that selfless. I had a bag of crunchy tortilla chips I picked up from our neighborhood Mexican supermarket and even with the plethora of salsa recipes on the blog, I just had to have the smoky goodness of roasted corn, black beans and poblano peppers, all tossed in a…
  • Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn Movies in the Park

    26 Aug 2015 | 1:07 pm
    This post is sponsored by Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn. Last Thursday, August 20, G and I took his niece and nephew to The Grove for the US Weekly Family Movie Night. This is Orville Redenbacher’s Movies in the Park series, with various events held across the U.S. throughout the fall. The kids, as you can imagine, were mighty pumped up. I have to admit, I was pretty excited, too. All G heard through the one hour plus drive from Orange County to L.A. was, “Are we there yet?” As this was our first Movie-in-the-Park experience, we didn’t quite know what to expect. We did, however,…

If you are looking for a quick and easy pasta dish the whole family is sure to love, this cheesy spaghetti will not disappoint. It cooks in 30 minutes and pulls together with basic pantry ingredients you probably already have on hand.

    21 Jun 2015 | 2:47 pm
    Way back before the turn of the century while living in San Francisco, one of our favorite restaurants was Caffe Sport, whose specialty is Italian seafood. This dish is inspired by one of their most popular menu items, “Scampi al’ Antonio”, created by Chef and founder Antonio La Tona.Our version is bursting with two garlic flavors; piquant fresh and sweet roasted then adds enough cayenne pepper to brighten things up without burning. We’ve added just the right amount of the king of Italian cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, to give this white sauce a perfect creaminess and a hint of cheese…

    At the end of July we packed up our kitchen and moved it, along with the rest of our life, to the Coachella Valley in Southern California.

    Whether you prepare Consommé, Bisque, Chowder or just Soup, you’re making something that just about everyone loves. 
Some soups, especially intense and clarified consommés or rich and creamy bisques are usually served as one of several courses in a meal. Others are equally appropriate occupying the “soup course” or as the star of the meal. 
This is one of those soups that serve as a complete meal - it’s hardy without being heavy and when served with a fresh loaf of crusty bread, a few crisp greens and some fruit no one will be looking for anything else to come out of the…

    22 Jun 2014 | 5:10 am
    Here’s a dish that is so easy to prepare you’ll feel guilty when your dinner companion raves about it. The flavor combination of tarragon, garlic and lemon are a natural with just about any mild seafood. We use them all sparingly to avoid overpowering the distinctive but delicate taste of the shrimp.If truly fresh shrimp is available to you, by all means use it for this recipe and any other time you prepare a dish with shrimp as the primary ingredient. But be sure that they are truly fresh and not “previously frozen” and then thawed. Almost all commercially available shrimp is frozen…

    19 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    – This Korean kimchi pancake recipe is my new favorite breakfast. – A few weeks ago I shared about something totally new for me – how to ferment kimchi, which became a staple in our home once my roommate Eun-ji moved in. Eun-ji grew up in Korea and makes all sorts of interesting things with kimchi: soups, snacks, and my personal favorite, savory kimchi pancakes. It took me a few weeks to get used to having kimchi on the menu around the clock, but it finally grew on me and now I can’t imagine life without it…. especially her kimchi pancake.

  • Making Kimchi: How Long to Ferment Kimchi

    Stephanie Stiavetti
    26 Jul 2015 | 4:28 pm
    Five years ago I never thought I’d be asking myself how long to ferment kimchi. I consider myself an adventurous eater, but Korean food was something I’d never connected with. Kimchi in particular was tough for me, as it carried a bunch of flavors and smells I wasn’t used to. I generally limited my cabbage intake to either my Russian beef and cabbage stew, or the occasional stuffed cabbage roll. It didn’t matter that several dieticians and naturopaths had recommended I eat kimchi – aka, fermented cabbage – regulary to help with some digestion problems I…

This is hands-down my favorite time of year for produce, that period between June and August where peaches are just bursting with color and flavor. When I go to the farmer’s market, I can smell them halfway down the aisle. Between the strawberries I’m grabbing for making strawberry-cranberry jam, my little basket it pretty full every week. Over the weekend I wanted a nice, summery drink that tasted like sunshine, and with so many peaches in my…

    Who remembers New  York style Egg Cream? My mom prepared these for us when we were younger using seltzer, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and milk.  I think the original recipe was made with egg, but ours never had egg in them. This was just a quick and  yummy beverage Mom whipped up! Well, I'm so excited because I created a HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE that is so very reminiscent of this childhood elixir!!!  When I took my first sip there was an instant recognition...and flashback.  I gave a sip to W and asked, "What does this remind you of?" Not being from NY, he sensed it was…

I'm not a greatchocolatier as I don't have the patience or the equipment, however, I try to attempt manually tempering whenever possible. For a quick..."I don't care about fussing" treat...simple - DO NOT temper. Throw this tastiness together, and store in the refrigerator or freezer. WARNING: It will melt in your EAT it quickly, or break into smaller, bite-sized pieces. This will cure any junk food craving for sweets!  There are several optional…

As a recipe developer, my goal is to RE-create comfort foods, replacing processed ingredients with healthy ingredients. While visiting a local spice shop, I came across this Root Beer Extract and could not resist. The aroma alone, sent me down memory lane. I was inspired to create!

Growing up in New Orleans first family of music, his father was apart of the famed Neville Brothers, the music business seemed like the path he would take.

    I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food is picture-perfect. But that’s okay, because what really matters is how it tastes. And oh man, these berry tarts taste good. I just made another batch last weekend when some friends were visiting, and they were gone before they could even cool. If you’re on…

    Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely Little Kitchen that I thought would be perfect to taste-test here on The PinterTest Kitchen. Her version is made with raspberry jam, but we love peaches around here, so I decided to switch things up a little for our recipe. It called for a tablespoon of heavy cream, which I didn’t have… but I used milk instead.

I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the smoothies at Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Orange Julius, but they have more sugar in a single sip than you should have all day. Make ’em at home and you’ll get the same great flavors without any added sugar. These are just perfect on a hot summer…

After I dropped him off at his ship and said a teary goodbye, I drove back to my brand new house in my brand new neighborhood and… There was silence. An empty house can make you feel so lonely, especially in the middle of winter. And to make matters worse, it was my birthday, and I was 300+ miles from everyone I knew. Now, before you start to feel bad for me, you should know that this story has a…

Quinoa is a much more diverse ingredient than most people realise and I mean it when you wouldn’t know that you weren’t eating rice when you make this recipe. Not only that but it’s much better for you and has a little nuttiness that elevates all of the flavours alongside it. Whether you’re making homemade veggie…

    About 3 months ago when the Southern Hemisphere was entering the dead of winter, I decided that I wanted to grow my own herbs in a container garden. This is not the smartest thing I have ever done and I knew it while I was shopping for seeds, seedlings and soil. I picked plants that I thought were going to survive a few frosty nights. I got coriander seeds (I never have any luck growing cilantro in summer, they just bolt and die so I thought winter might do it some good), garlic chive seeds, rosemary plant, peppermint plant and fennel plant. My strategy has been, largely, to keep my fingers…

    Looking at all my blog posts lately, I can see why you would think that I am a die hard carnivore. Believe me, I eat veggies most weeknights.

    Oh my goodness, I don’t even know where to begin with this recipe. A few days ago, I was brainstorming what to make for my family friends birthday, and decided to make my chocolate caramel brownie cake (you can see the finished result here). The cake features my favourite caramel sauce recipe which I actually hadn’t made in ages, and when it came to making it that day, I remembered just how much I love it. After the cake had all been eaten, I began to crave the caramel (I’d forgotten how addictive it is) once again. As I sat there dreaming of this caramel sauce, I had an…

Somedays I manage to find a small space of time to do a quick sketch or watercolour, but recently I’ve generally had very little time do anything besides work, and intentionally sit down to paint. When I create a piece of art, I try to focus my mind entirely on the paper or canvas before me, and then I allow my creativity to take full control. In my opinion, the process of making art is definitely as important as the final result of a piece. Whenever I see a finished artwork, I always wonder how it…

    Well, I honestly never thought the day would come where I would find myself addicted to a salad. Hmm, it’s certainly a very strange feeling. Even when I went back for third and fourth helpings of this, I felt a bit shocked that I was enjoying a salad so much. Of course, this isn’t the ‘typical’ kind of salad you would imagine, as I’m not one for anything too conventional. It’s a ‘salad’ that’s packed with brown rice, has no salad leaves, and a dressing that’s more like a curry sauce. But, it’s filled with vegetables, and…

    I definitely think I’m going through a cherry phase at the moment. I can’t stop buying them, eating them or making recipes with them – and I’m actually going through punnet loads. Although they can be quite pricey to buy, I always think they’re worth the extra money because they’re just so delicious – and they make up for the fact I’m never able to enjoy any of the ripe local strawberries during this time of the year, as I’m allergic! So, when I would have naturally chosen to eat a strawberry, or needed to use some to make something, I…

    Our little baby girl is only three weeks old, but we’ve already gone through a lot of diapers in her short life so far. It’s kind of amazing how many you go through in one day. I would estimate 12-15 as babies really have no sleep pattern at this point so it’s a 24 hour experience changing diapers which means you want them to be absorbent, leak proof and as kind to their little bottoms as possible. I’ve been using a bunch of brands to see which ones stand up best and came across Bambo Nature. First and foremost my favorite part is that they’re skin-friendly using no dangerous…

Just as an example I do 30 second quick recipe commercial ideas on Kids Place Live on Sirius radio and while I was driving with the kids today they heard one come on. It’s no surprise at this point that it’s my voice, but they love hearing the different tips and recipe suggestions.

We started the summer in the Turks and Caicos for a much needed family vacation for two weeks. Then I headed to farm camp at Blue Hill in New York with my parents and the kids where I also appeared on the Today Show in a segment about work life balance (is there such a thing?!) and an appearance on The View for a Back to School Lunch segment.

    Over the past few years we have tried to make some major changes in our home to protect the health of our family. 1. Buy Organic Produce – We buy most of our food at our local farmers markets focusing on organic or pesticide free foods that are locally grown as often as possible trying to avoid chemicals that can be sprayed on the food we eat that’s supposed to keep it beautiful. I would rather eat tasty food that’s unattractive to pretty food with little taste any day! 2.

    Kenya could probably subsist on brown rice, so I keep bags of it on hand in the freezer at all times. Thank goodness for our rice cooker which makes cooking huge batches of it all fluffy and nutty smelling. We enjoy eating it plain or sprinkled with sesame seeds or in Tex Mex Rice Cakes, Mexican Rice Balls, served alongside Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry or in Shrimp Un-Fried Rice. Watch this Shrimp Un-Fried Rice Video to see a few quick tips to making this dish in less than 30 minutes.

    Can you believe it’s September already?  It doesn’t quite feel like it to me since we’re still seeing temps near 100 degrees here.  I’m ready to start thinking about fall now and dreaming of those cool days and the leaves changing colors.  Fall also means pumpkin.  Starbucks’s annual Pumpkin Spice Latte is always a newsworthy event.  And it seems like that is the official announcement that fall has arrived. In dreaming of all things pumpkin, I wanted to make something sweet.  And fudge was the first thing that came to my mind.  I made this Super…

These are some of the most common words you might find in a recipe.

His favorite used to be chicken nuggets and every time we went out to a shopping mall he would find a reason to get some chicken nuggets for himself. But gradually after he found me and my daughter eating vegetable nuggets and he being the odd man out, he switched to vegetable nuggets along with us. A loving…

    My daughter and cup cakes. You might be thinking what that means.. right!!! My daughter loves Vanilla Cream Filled Cupcakes very much. Nooo… that doesn’t mean that she does not like any other cakes. Cakes are her weakness. When I ask her if she is feeling hungry and if I should bring some food for her, She would say nod her head in a “NO” to food. But as soon as I show her some cupcakes she would nod her head in “YES” and will ask for the cake. That’s naughty, isn’t it? Kids tend to be like that. They would give way to their lunch and dinner for…

    Tulsi is the most sacred herb of India and this sacred plant is found in almost every Indian household. People in India worship and care for the plant daily. The leaves of tulsi are cosidered as a herbal remedy for a lot of common ailments. Tulsi is considered as the destroyer of all the doshas in Ayurveda and is also known as “queen of herbs”.

He used to tell me that it keeps him healthy and also keep all diseases away. Tulsi…

But of, course it tastes heavenly if there is some side dish to go with it. But guess what!!! I can’t make it often and the reason being that it has lot of calories and fat in it. But yet you can delight yourself and your family in between with this delicious treat. The main ingredient in this recipe is rice and ghee, other than that you will need whole spices and some dry fruits which is easily available at home. So whenever your are short of time and you…

             Chicken fry is a delicious dish with great aroma and taste. It has very little,thick gravy or to say it is a rather dry roasted form. I have added lots of chili powder to give a nice spice kick to the chicken fry. You can reduce the amount of chilly powder and add more of onions if you like the spicy flavor. Spicy Andhra Chicken is another roast recipe its my family favorite dish. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice. The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed…

Then I gave it a shot and the white candy melts I used were wayyy too thick. The mixture pulled the cookies apart and didn’t coat evenly. So I did what any rational person would do and consulted the internet. Thanks to the help of a forum, I learned…

    As I mentioned in my last post, over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing all of the recipes and DIYs from my recent colorful confetti party! Today’s DIY is crazy easy and will cost hardly anything. You can make these beautiful party platters and cake stands with materials found at your local thrift store. Get the DIY for these colorful cake stands after the jump! All you need is a plate, a mug or bowl, epoxy and a spray paint that has paint & primer in one (regular spray paint will scrape right off). You can decide what look you want – with a mug handle, or…

  • The Little Dipper in Durham, NC

    2 Sep 2015 | 4:00 am
    Last Friday night, TJ and I ventured over to Durham, NC to have a fondue dinner at The Little Dipper. I’ve always thought that going to a fondue place would be fun, so when we found a Groupon a few weeks ago, it seemed like the perfect time to try it out. I wasn’t too sure about what to expect (except for lots of melted cheese and chocolate), but it ended up being one of the most fun outings we’ve ever had. The restaurant is in Brightleaf Square, located on the cutest little street with a bunch of shops, restaurants, and adorable street lights. We made a reservation for…
  • Spinach and Fontina Bruschetta

    30 Aug 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Today is a super awesome and special Secret Recipe Club day – we’re all posting about tailgating foods!! When I first learned that there would be a special theme day all about tailgating recipes (aka, my favorite food group), I was so excited, so I’m thrilled that reveal day is finally here. I think that maybe even causal blog readers/Instagram and Twitter followers can see pretty easily that I am a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I have been counting down the days until the season starts since the Monday after the Super Bowl (10 days to go!), and I’m so ready for it…
  • Cheesy Bites

    28 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    So, two weekends ago, TJ and I were watching TV when we saw a Pizza Hut commercial advertising some pizza with cheesy bites around the edge in place of a crust. I thought it kind of seemed weird (how do you hold a slice of pizza without a crust?!), but I did think that the cheesy bites by themselves would be pretty good. After TJ and I talked about how you could possibly eat a piece of pizza without a crust, I told him that I was going to try making our own cheesy bites, sans pizza. They ended up being so easy and delicious! I mean, it’s bread and cheese – what’s not to…
  • We’re Moving Back When? (Part 3)

    26 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    This is the third post in a series written by my husband, TJ, about our house flood experience. This is a multi-part series of how Ashley and I are thankful that we had excellent insurance coverage (from Nationwide).  Water does a lot of damage!  To catch up, read Part 1 and Part 2 before continuing with this post. As I left off in Part 2, we were put in this situation whether we liked it or not, so we started to make lists of upgrades, get pricing, then rank them.  For example, while the house was gutted, it made the most sense to add Ethernet connections in the other rooms now (as long…

    24 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    (Ok, truthfully this picture isn’t that “current”, as we took it in June, but let’s just go with it) So, I’ve talked a little about this before, but I’m just kind of blah about blogging lately. Maybe it’s a summer funk, maybe blogging is changing, or maybe I’ve just been enjoying life too much lately to force myself to sit down and blog when I don’t feel like it. There’s definitely something really refreshing about just living life and not worrying about writing blog posts or posting on Instagram, etc. I don’t know if…

It can be stir-fried, steamed or boiled, but I swear raw is the way to go!

    I don’t remember much about that Chinese history class I took in college. I was forced to take it in order fill credit requirements after discovering absolutely nothing else was open, not even ice skating. My brain deleted 4,000 years worth of Chinese history in the time it took to put down my pencil after the final exam. I do however remember the more important things I learned in college, such as how to pour a beer slowly into a tipped glass to avoid all the foam. Remember that? Now forget all about it, or your pizza will suck.   With beer pizza dough you need a flat, room…
  • DIY Baby Nook

    20 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
      Our little condo is… well, little. Like these pink moccasins. A baby does not take up much space, but all the added baby items definitely do. Luckily our bedroom is quite large, as it used to be two bedrooms.     Back when we first moved in, we wondered how we could best use such a large bedroom. Now we know! The extra space is perfect to section off a baby nook. We can keep her nearby, while having a semi-private area for her to sleep, as undisturbed as possible.   The plan was to divide the room by creating sliding fabric panels that would hang from the ceiling. We…
  • Marshmallow Frosting with Chocolate Cake

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    This is all about the marshmallow frosting. The chocolate cake is just something to eat it with, like a piece of toast for homemade raspberry jam. I have never liked marshmallows. A lot of people find this strange, but you’ll find it less bizarre after I tell you I have a sister who does not like chocolate. The worst of all were the mutant “marshmallow” confections found in lucky charms. They were (and still are) like crispy, sugary freeze-dried styrofoam. One day at my friend’s 10th birthday party, she asked me to have a piece of her birthday cake with her favorite marshmallow…
  • Southwestern Chipotle Lasagna

    14 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    It’s time for some cuisine confusion. Or should that be fusion? Sounds like the same thing to me. Tonight’s dinner is a Mexitalian inspired lasagna in form, but with the soul of a taco. I’ve been making variations of this lasagna since college, but the chipotle makes this one my favorite. I also added the broccoli and spinach this time. Vegetables were not in my vocabulary as an undergrad, unless they happen to be delivered on top of a pizza. Southwestern Chipotle Lasagna 1 ½ cup broccoli 4 oz spinach 1 medium onion 4 oz green chili peppers 1½ cups crushed fire-roasted tomatoes 1 lb…
  • Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

    11 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Sometimes pureed veggie soups can taste a bit monotone, like a mouthful of “meh”.  We can’t have that here.  Sad soups do nothing to help motivate one to eat healthy. However, pre-roasting the vegetables changes things drastically for the better. Just like making a face-melting habanero salsa, roasting brings out a better range of flavors. This is a good quick & healthy recipe to make when you don’t feel like putting a lot of effort into dinner, yet it tastes like something you cooked for hours. Note: You can buy the pesto or make your own. I had some leftover asparagus…

    Kurt Hicks
    5 Sep 2015 | 1:15 am
    The Reverse Aero Press This is my favorite brew method. The reverse aero press is quick simple and delivers a deliciously light coffee. As the name States for this method you will need to get yourself an aero press (invented by the guy who bought us the aerobie frisbee!) at around £22 it's very cost-effective way of making great tasting home-brewed coffee. Your going to need about 15g of freshly ground coffee. Try not to get the grind too fine when using this method I found the best results come from a medium to coarse grind. Using 15g of coffee and the given size of the aero press, you're…

Start  by preheating your oven to 110°C/gas mark 1/4. Then whisk  the egg whites until they begin to form soft peaks. This can take a while if you’re doing by hand luckily enough i have a Kitchen Aid so it doesn’t take long at all. (They are pretty pricey but well worth the money if you bake a lot) Once the…

    Choosing the right slow cooker means all of the difference if you will love or hate your slow cooker. Here is a guide to help you make your best decision in purchasing a slow cooker. Why Use A Slow Cooker There are many great reasons to use a slow cooker. Some of my favorite reasons to use a slow cooker is you can make a good meal without having to stand over the stove.

Do you like chicken salad, but think it can be complicated to make? If you are like me, I wonder what should I put in there, pickles, onions, olives, other crunchy edibles. I recently tried Jason’s Deli Chicken salad and was blown away with the sweet simplicity of this recipe. It contains mayonnaise, slivered almonds, chicken, salt, pepper, and crushed pineapple. Do you wonder how this tastes? Let me tell you, it is amazing. It is slightly sweet, and the…

      Easy, healthy, light, high protein and low carbohydrate. Nothing could be better than this skillet ground turkey curry with spinach, garbanzo beans and dates. Perfect for a weeknight meal, it’s made in one pan and is ready in 15 minutes.       This recipe was a fluke that instantly turned into a favorite. I had attempted to quickly throw together a dinner that used ground turkey that wasn’t spaghetti and meat sauce or meatballs. I recall wanting to create something close to the Thai dish larb, which is often ground chicken, served room temperature with a…

    I'm always inspired by other people's creations. When I need an idea of what to bake, I turn to the internet and find something that I can create, alter, or make better. Contests provide a great opportunity to make something that I wouldn't otherwise do. This recipe is my entry into the Cupcake Project's 2015 ice cream cupcake contest! Full rules and details can be found here. I always prefer a much higher ratio of cake to ice cream than most people.

    This is a good recipe to have in your back pocket. It goes by many names. Puff pancake, German pancake, Dutch baby and Yorkshire pudding are among the most common. The pancake can be eaten at breakfast with fruit and maple syrup, or at dinner with meat and gravy. It's simple to throw together on a weekday, and can be doubled, or even tripled. Make these in any type of pan that you desire, from a muffin tin, to a 9x13 casserole dish. It's light and crispy around the puffed up edges, but eggy and firm in the center. A hot oven is key, as well as using plenty of real butter to help it bake…

    This dessert doesn't need much of an introduction. It's basically an excuse to eat an entire dish of smore's, without having to keep track of how many actual smore's you've really eaten. They make a nice presentation, they're neater to eat, and can serve a crowd if necessary. Throw the dip together right before you plan to eat it, so the chocolate is perfectly melty and gooey, then dig in!

    Some things are just way easier and cheaper to make at home. Granola is one of those things. You can be snacking on a batch of fresh, crunchy granola, in less time than it takes to run out to the store to buy a box. I like to control the quality of the ingredients, and the amount of each that is used. Store bought granola can be much too sweet, and typically has a lot of fat. Even worse, the sugar and fat comes from unhealthy sources. Use this recipe as a base, then modify it using any type of nuts or seeds that you prefer. Sprinkle it on yogurt, use it for snacking, add it to baked goods…

  • Cantonese Chicken Egg Roll (广式鸡肉春卷)

    3 Sep 2015 | 6:36 pm
    The Cantonese chicken egg roll shows you the beauty of authentic Chinese food. It uses the perfect combination of meat, savory dried foods, colorful veggies, and a well-balanced sauce to release the ultimate umami. I learned this recipe from a famous Hongkongese dim sum chef. This is a must-try if you’re into real Chinese food. If you think an egg roll is a normal food item that we eat on a daily basis in China, you’re very wrong. We call egg rolls “spring rolls” (春卷, chun juan) in China. It’s a festive dish that people cook and enjoy on the eve of Spring Festival (春节, chun…

    This recipe features crispy and fluffy fried fish, a very rich sweet and sour sauce that uses only three ingredients, and the right amount of veggies, nuts, and fruits to bring out the best flavor of the fish. This is not a dish for a busy day’s dinner, but rather a delicacy to savor – a feast to enjoy with family and friends. A great tasting sweet and sour fish requires time and effort. You need to slice the fish into thin pieces to create the best texture and mouthfeel. You need to deep fry it in small batches, to get every single piece of fish crispy, fluffy, and heavenly-tasting…

As long as you have flour, eggs, and kimchi (I always keep a gallon-sized jar of it in my fridge) in your kitchen, you can make these fluffy and appetizing pancakes in minutes. Plus, the pancakes require minimal prep. The only thing you need to chop is leftover meat. If you want to make meatless pancakes, you won’t…

Does the name of this dish sound strange enough? Biang Biang noodles is actually a simple spicy noodle dish. The noodles are freshly made and quite wide and thick. The word “biang” is an onomatopoeia – it mimics of the sound made in the process making the noodles, when the dough is pulled and slapped against the working surface.

    Greetings from London! This is my first trip to England and, although I love to blog about the different food trends in other countries, I had no idea what to expect when I arrived here. Now that I’ve been here for 3 weeks, I can say that, the tastiest meals I’ve experienced have been at street markets. This was unknown to me before I arrived, but street markets are extremely common here. So rather than writing about the traditional cider and fish and chips trends here, I decided to put together a list of my favorite street markets in London. And trust me, if you’re a…

    Being born and raised in Boston, I hated the winters growing up. But ever since moving to California, I find myself more and more missing something I never thought I’d miss… snow! Every year, I make it a habit to plan a winter trip. Sometimes I go back home for Thanksgiving or Christmas, other times I rent a cabin in Big Bear for the weekend. I always make sure to reserve a cabin with a fireplace, because there’s nothing I love more than curling up in front of the fire with a blanket, a book, and a warm drink. After toying around with many spiked cocoas, hot toddys and…
  • Grilled Caprese Sandwich

    15 Aug 2015 | 3:26 pm
    So here’s the thing with my grilled caprese sandwich recipe… I use spinach leaves instead of basil. To me, spinach tastes wayyy better, not to mention all the healthy goodness in spinach leaves. However, if you’re a basil lover, please feel free to use basil instead of spinach. (I also grill both sides of the bread, the outside and the inside, but I’ve noticed some recipes don’t do that.) Either way, mozzarella + tomato = WIN. Such a great combo. My friends made two trays of mini capreses (cherry tomatoes, basil and mini mozzarella balls on toothpicks) for a…

    My favorite tapas restaurant in Los Angeles, Red O, has a fantastic drink menu, and their cucumber melon margarita was always my favorite. Unfortunately, they revised their menu, and my favorite drink is no longer on it Thus, I now have no choice but to make my own. These margaritas don’t contain any refined sugar, as they’re naturally sweetened with honeydew melon, and I add a dash of agave nectar for extra flavor. I’m pretty picky when it comes to margaritas, and sugary mixers tend to be too sweet for me, so these are perfect. (And if you’re not too strict on sugar…

I also had those who are vegan and lactose intolerant in mind because I was pretty sure that my mother’s lovely cake would contain both.  We had a bunch of mangoes in…
  • One Bowl Paleo Brownies (gluten free & paleo)

    14 Aug 2015 | 10:40 am
    Last week was a little rough in the emotional department.  I’ll spare you the sappy details but lets say that it warranted some chocolate therapy.  There’s a cupcake shop not far from me that makes a red velvet GF cupcake.  The thought of running over there and picking up a cupcake kept crossing my mind!  Then I thought about all the sugar and frosting, and it made me change my mind. I made a lifestyle change a few months back, and I’ve had sugar maybe 3 times since.  Honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar are okay, but that’s about it.  My taste buds have…
  • Thai Basil Curry (gluten free, dairy free, & paleo, with a vegan option)

    3 Aug 2015 | 10:52 pm
      At our last place there was a Thai restaurant right down the street that had the best Green Curry.  It was incredibly convenient because they delivered and if we had last minute guests we would just order and have it delivered to the house. The girls loved their chicken satay and the hubs and I would order the green curry at least a couple of times a month.  It was such a great take-out spot for those lazy Friday nights.  Since we moved two years ago, I haven’t been able to find a Thai place that we really like so I started making Thai Curry at home whenever I get a craving…
  • Coconut Mocha Cream Pops (paleo, vegan, & gluten free)

    Summer days are here again, and there is nothing better than an ice cold treat on a hot summer day!  My girls have been enjoying their ice cream while I just stare and drool.  Now let me explain why I’m not eating spoonfuls of ice cream and sharing in the brain freezes with them. My doctor told me a few months ago that I need to intake more protein and that my cholesterol was a tad high. That caught me off guard, since I don’t really eat anything high in fat.  Well, other than cheese.  I’m basically a mouse, so I decided that must be what’s causing it.  I have…
  • Tangy Chicken Tacos (paleo & gluten free)

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:26 pm
    Its funny how cooking is sometimes like a science experiment.  You add a little bit of this and a little of that, then wait to see if its amazing or blows up in your face.  There were many experiments that took place in our kitchen before I got a handle on the spices and ingredients that I now use on a daily basis.  We live in such an international world though, that I’m always finding new and unfamiliar ingredients that I want to play with and the experiments begin again.  I never thought food would be my thing, but it is.  I love happy faces after a good meal, I love cooking and…

  • Curry Chicken

    31 Aug 2015 | 6:00 pm
    This curry chicken recipe is one of the first recipes I created. It is very simple to make, uses a few ingredients and can be cooked in one pot. How easy is that? Who would have thought after all these years I would still be making it? Oh and you may want to light some scented candles after making this if you don’t want your house smelling like curry for the next few days. This recipe makes 6-8 servings. INGREDIENTS: 1/3 cup vegetable oil 3 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces 2 tablespoons yellow curry powder (your choice of mild or spicy hot) 1 large carrot, cut into quarter or…

Plus, if I make mini loaves my mom knows she’s going to get at least one. For this recipe I used plain yogurt because I heard it would keep the cake moist. Boy, were they right. INGREDIENTS: 1 cup plain yogurt 1 cup sugar; plus additional 1 tablespoon for lemon syrup 3 large eggs 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (about 2 lemons) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour; plus additional 2 tablespoons for…

    Ever have one of those days when you just don’t know what to make for dinner?  To be honest, I’ve had more than one of those days. I find myself gazing into my cupboard waiting for some magic cupboard elves in there to pop out and say, “Here make this.”  Instead I take inventory to see what I have and I find I have almost all the ingredients to make a tamale pie. Almost being the operative word. So instead, I decided to compromise and this recipe was born. I’m calling it a Mexican casserole for lack of a better name. (Almost tamale pie? Nah…) INGREDIENTS:…
  • Creamy Bow Tie Pasta with Spinach and Bacon (Farfalle Spinaci)

    How does bow tie pasta in a garlic cream sauce with spinach, bacon bits, caramelized onions and red bell peppers sound? It sounded good to my stomach. I know you’re thinking I’m trying to fatten us up by eating pasta, bacon and cream sauce in one dish. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There is no cream in this recipe. Instead I used two ears of sweet corn and chicken stock to make this creamy sauce. And I’m going to show you how easy it was. INGREDIENTS: 6 ounces uncooked bow tie (farfalle) pasta; about 1/2 a box. 2 ears of corn 2 cups of chicken stock…

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:08 pm
    Yes, more muffins for my daughters college care package! My daughter was a little nervous going through sorority rush for the first time as an active, so I went overboard baking for her college care package. I started with banana muffins, found chocolate chips, so I put those in.  Then, the blueberries and lemons got my attention, so I went for it.

    Add a little something sweet to your kids college care package! Knowing what to include in the care packages I send to my daughter at college can be a little confusing.

They’re the perfect treat to bridge the gap between “I miss home” and “I’m so glad not to be at home.” Simple Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins  …

  • Easy Pasta Recipe – Spinach Fettuccine with Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

And, if you’re lucky enough to have left overs, it’s not…
  • Simple Healthy Szechuan Chicken & Shrimp Stir-Fry Recipe

    14 Aug 2015 | 8:13 am
    This is by far my favorite healthy chicken & shrimp stir-fry recipe! It’s quick and simple with flavorful ingredients that give it a real punch. Better yet, it’s flexible. Don’t like shrimp or chicken, leave it out. Spicy food isn’t for you, leave it out or use less chili paste. Add veggies if you want to bulk it up. It’s a dairy free as is, but can be made gluten free, peanut free or soy free by switching out an ingredient or two.
