This is the first pumpkin recipe I’ve ever made. Shocking for some of you, but growing up in the Philippines where pumpkins weren’t easily available, it’s not for me. I’ve never had the urge to buy them or even carve them, but I wanted to change that this year. I’ve inadvertently snubbed it in the […]
I was told a while ago: ‘Every dish tells a story.‘ At the same time, food is meant to be savored with every bite. Since leaving the FoodBuzz event last week, I have had more desire to achieve more than I had since starting this blog. Joy’s been an incredible inspiration for my cooking and […]
This is my ode to the beet. I love it. It is good steamed/boiled, but why stop there? Surely the humble, yet provocatively deep red-colored, beet has more to offer beyond the boundaries of salads, or worse, as a natural red food color. The result of an evening of inspiration and creativity was this Creamy […]
Just the right blend of subtle flavors, without overpowering the rutabagas. Biting into each chunk of rutabaga feels like biting into a vegetable that is a cross between a turnip and squash, without the latter’s mushiness but a hint of its taste. I love that it holds its shape without easily disintegrating when cooked. The peppers were a nice complement to the rutabaga and coconut milk, and the turmeric added just enough character to the taste of the dish. Paired with pork cutlets and eaten with steamed rice–such a satisfying bite!
A soft and smooth–no, SILKY–frozen yogurt that tastes and smells like caramel popcorn. Hello lovah! It goes really well with OR in coffee, between two pieces of Oreos, with rooibos tea, with hot chocolate or chocolate syrup, but I haven’t tried it with caramel popcorn. Hah.
Say hello to the to this summery This-is-the-Perfect-“cure”-for-the-heat raspberry frozen yogurt (made with 2% Fage Greek yogurt). If you’re in the Pacific Northwest like I am, you know how excruciatingly hot and painful to bear this week has been, especially if you don’t have A/C. So come on take out your ice cream maker if you haven’t already, and make this! Put yourself out of misery now.
Hello Friends! I’m doing this year’s Blogathon on July 25 and blog every 30 minutes for 24 hours to raise money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. If you are able, please sponsor me and make a donation pledge. Butter. I love it and there’s no denying it. When I was really, really young, […]
C’mon take a bite. Say hello to this semi-light and moist banana bread balanced with chopped walnuts. Before you know it, you’ve finished a slice. Worried about your summer diet? Relax. It has yogurt instead of cream. We took care of the texture without giving you the fat. There, there…have another slice. And don’t forget to wipe that golden crumb from the corner of your mouth…
I rarely make lists as posts, so consider this a treat.I didn’t even make one for Canada Day! Shame shame. Anyway, if you’re still looking for ideas for the weekend, here are some easy peasy suggestions, ye American neighbors. Summer Strawberry Fro-Yo or Honey Peach Fro-Yo will beat the heat, the ice cream craving and […]
