Spicy Warm Silken Tofu with Celery and Cilantro Salad. GIGANTES- Large white Beans/ Elephant Beans - ONLY 4 ingredients. Goat Cheese Jalapeno Poppers with Honey and Bacon Recipe. My little brother’s exasperation with/at goat cheese is the stuff that family jokes and big-sister-harassment are made of. “Goat cheese? Like from a real goat? Is that natural? Can a goat make cheese?” [makes dramatic “icky face,” waves off delicious food with goat cheese] But I still love him. But he might adapt. Let’s just hope we never have to find out.

I took great big-sister-joy in bringing a dish with goat cheese to his weekend pool party, watching him scarf down half a dozen peppers, and then delivering a perfectly snarky, “Thought you didn’t like goat cheese?” While he possibly tried to give me the silent treatment, I spent the next several minutes fielding recipe questions and compliments. The jalapeno popper itself is pretty awesome. So we improved a bit on the jalapeno popper: I used up some of the 108 (!) The combination of Sweet + Tangy + Salty + Heat is insanely addicting. I bet you can’t eat just 6! Unless you were late to the party. Ingredients Instructions Notes. Pasta Carbonara With Leeks and Sun-Dried Tomatoes. In its classic preparation, pasta carbonara is immensely comforting but a hair heavier than I typically crave this time of year. To make this fast and easy dish Summer-friendly, I add fresh flavor in the form of grassy, slightly sweet leeks, a hefty handful of parsley, and a few slivers of candy-sweet sun-dried tomatoes.

Thin wisps of leeks take to browning in a bath of bacon drippings magnificently, without tacking on more than a couple minutes of prep time, keeping this fresh take on an old friend firmly in the weeknight-dinner camp. Carbonara purists will balk at this suggestion (if they haven't already), but I've even been known to wilt down a bunch of kale, in ribbon form, alongside the leeks for a bulked-up, greener iteration — consider this recipe a template for experimentation.

Notes Substitute Italian guanciale for the bacon, if you can find it. Ingredients Directions Information Category Pasta, Main Dishes Cuisine Italian Yield 4-6 servings. Home-made... This is homemade!

You’re looking as beautiful as ever! Yes, there is a story behind that unusual welcome to an edible, inanimate object. I’m weird, but not that weird. I hope. Remember when I told you about the computer crash of 2011 where I lost almost everything? It was an amazing food blog run, and I had about 7 posts lined up. A twist on Crack Pie, 12-Layer Macadamia Nougatine Milk Chocolate Torte (the macadamia nougatine chocolate ganache counted as a layer, not 12 layers of cake!) I cried when I was told that the drive was so damaged there was no way of recovering the photos. I’m not a violent person by any stretch, but, damn, when you put so much heart, time and intensity into something, and then it vanishes into thin air, you need to throw something. Now I pay for an online backup service.

The worst part is, only those 5 creations were annihilated. I never posted the so-so potential posts. Now to the lady whose blog name I love; Oh, the 10 eggs? Prep time: Beetroot & Sweet Potato Roast Vegetables Recipe. The Café Sucré Farine: Best Ever!!! Marinara Sauce. Mini Crab Cakes with an Asian Plum Sauce. We love a good crab cake around here. I really think that a really great crab cake is hard to come by. They are so often made with too much bread (panko or some other binding agent) or sometimes it goes the complete other direction, and they aren’t made with enough of the “extras.” Extras include panko, seasonings galore, an egg or two, mayo, etc. You get the point. I was totally craving a good crab cake last week and unfortunately had to wait until last night to make them, but it was so worth the wait. It’s only natural that we would want to pair these crab cakes with a beer that’s been brewed with plums.

These cakes can totally be made ahead of time too. Okie doke. Mini Crab Cakes with an Asian Plum Sauce Ingredients Instructions For the crab cakes, in a large bowl, combine the egg, mayo, butter, lemon zest, cajun seasoning, a dash of salt and pepper and the panko bread crumbs. Notes. Pea Ravioli with Sage Butter Sauce & News - It’s been a long month, but still somehow too short and too chaotic to keep up with it all. Losing a family member is always heartbreaking, especially if it’s someone who you have always looked up to.

My grandma passed away after a short fight with cancer, leaving an unfathomable emptiness in my heart. She didn’t live long enough to meet her first great-grandchild and the thought of that fills my heart with sadness. Our little one will never get the chance to meet the person that cared for me and inspired me throughout my whole life. All we can do now is cherish our memories and pass them on to our baby girl. The thought of her shines a ray of bright light over our lives and helps us get through all the sad moments. Life has finally got back on track these days. Another project I’ve been putting a lot of thought into has to do with blog and baking and it’s called Slatki gušti. Meanwhile, try making your own pasta. Recept na hrvatskom Click to rate!

I wish I was cool enough to have a witty lead in and build up to the exciting news, but I’m just going to digitally blurt it out: I’m cooking on The Today Show, in New York, on Wednesday.

I’ll be battling it out with two other cooks in The Joyful Cook-off for supreme Healthy One Pot Meal domination, although the big prize is merely bragging rights. With a free trip to New York, and the opportunity to cook on The Today show, I feel like I’ve already won. Back to these potatoes, that will forever be known as Beverly Hills potatoes. The hardest thing about this dish is finding these miniature potatoes, although I have seen them in several markets. Now I’m hooked. And this is what happens when I try to photograph anything while tater is awake. She’s the best. Beverly Hills Potatoes with Pesto Butter Ingredients 1.5 lbs miniature potatoes 1 to 2 cups kosher salt 1/4 cup pesto 2 tbs melted butter Instructions Preheat oven to 400. Copyright Thai Coconut Milk Soup with Shrimp - Tom Kha - avocadopesto. Right now I’m feeling pretty cranky.

The kind of thing where if I was still a baby I would just cry nonstop and throw my toys on the floor. Possibly with a few bouts of stamping my feet on the ground as well. Since I’m a so called adult, I’m simply throwing an internal temper tantrum. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but my best guess is that it’s the weather. I have been in 100 degree tropical South East Asia temperatures for the last 5 months and instead of building up my tolerance for the heat I’m just reaching my limit. It’s just too hot. All the time. Anyone who knows me knows patience is not one of my strong suits, and it really is starting to run out. I’m ready to walk outside and feel a cool breeze, perhaps even a chill. Luckily we’ve got less than two weeks left in Asia, and then we head to Europe, but I can honestly say I’m ready for temps in the 60s.

I’d love to have a bowl of soup to warm me up. A handful of fresh flavorful ingredients is all you need for a winning bowl of soup. Indian Classics - Traditional Potato and Peas Samosas. My favourite samosa memory is from my hometown, even though I've had über delicious ones when I've been away at university as well. My cousin Brad introduced me to this little chaat place just under a block of apartments close to home, called Vrindavan.

They made some really good chaats and samosas. One of my favourite chaats from there was a 'ragda samosa' where there made and fried fresh samosas, which were then broken up and smothered in a curried pigeon pea or chickpea sauce called a ragda and sprinkled over with chopped onion, a sweet/ sour tamarind chutney, cilantro and spicy, fried chickpea noodles called sev. The whole experience is, and has always been, mindblowing to me, with all the textures and tasted melding together into an explosion of flavours. Every time I visit back home, this is one of my first foodie stops. Of course, I would be doing the dhabas of Delhi a disservice if I didn't mention them when it comes to samosas, of course. But we persevered. Samosa Dough: Method: Love your lentils. Did you know that May is Canadian Lentils Love your Lentils month?

Well it’s been a perfect excuse for me to play around with lentils in the kitchen and come up with a couple of entries for the Love your Lentils contest. When I received the lentils in the swag at FBC2013 , I knew immediately that I wanted to work on a soup recipe (especially since the weather here in Toronto has been, shall we say, less than seasonal recently!). I loved Dorie Greenspan’s orange-scented lentil soup and wanted to play with those ingredients as I really enjoyed the combination of oranges and lentils.

Instead of green lentils, I worked with red to create a carrot and lentil soup with notes of cardamon and orange. Perfect for this in-between weather we’ve been having where Mother Nature doesn’t know if it’s spring, summer or winter. Next up, I was inspired by some puffy pillowy ricotta gnocchi that I made last week. And then I got to thinking, “I wonder if I can incorporate lentils into gnocchi somehow?” Avocado Fritters with Avocado-Cilantro Cream Dipping Sauce. Teriyaki Tempeh and Shiitake Mushrooms with Sriracha Soba. Vegan Recipe. Easily Glutenfree. Some days when I pass by a place which used to be a favorite in my pre-gan days, I realize that I havent eaten or made some type of food in years.. Teriyaki is one of them.

The sauce is easy and it left me wondering why I had not made this before! The Tempeh gets all sticky and delicious after being cooked in the sauce. The mushrooms get chewy and saucy and hubbs loved them even more. Seriously, make this! To balance out the sweet in the sauce, I tossed the Soba in Sriracha.. This is one quick weeknight meal.

You know how Santa Claus arrives in the middle of the night, delivers his merry heap of bounty, and then sneaks off again without a trace? I love that. It’s so easy to be fascinated by something that we can’t see — something that appears to be magical by simple virtue of its not having appeared at all.

You should know that this is not the case with the Fava Bean Fairy, who I saw with my very own eyes just a few days ago in the Whole Foods produce section. He was wearing a green collared shirt, a set of plastic food safety gloves, and he was schlepping those beautiful bulging pea pods from box to basket like nobody’s business. For several weeks now, I’ve been gawking over a myriad of fava bean recipes, but up until this week, I had yet to see a single green pod at any of the markets I frequent.

I wondered about the empty basket when I first walked past it — the one tucked between the green beans and the snap peas. And then, it was like a scene in a movie. For two to four. Ingredients: Good Thymes and Good Food: DIY: Homemade Cheese Crackers. Cheez-Its have been a longtime favorite snack of mine. They're easy to grab, salty, and crunchy - 3 of my favorite things about a snack. As usual, though, I decided to try my hand at making them myself.

Recipe Rx: Spring Herb & Parmesan Popovers - GMC Trade Secrets. Sweet Soy Butternut Squash. Hello ladies and gentlegerms. I hope that everyone had a great weekend because mine was pretty epic.

I definitely indulged a bit more than I’d usually allow myself, but it’s okay every so often, isn’t it? Don’t answer that. Anyway, we got things going a little early on Thursday night with Mexican food and margaritas, accompanied by plenty of guacamole. I would have been plenty happy with just that, but we were able to score a reservation at The Smile, thanks to our friends Matt and Amanda.

I had wanted to check it out for a while, but I had always wandered into Mile End for a smoked meat sandwich before I could sit down at a table with a tablecloth for dinner. Tom’s baby mask is the creepiest and coolest thing ever. On Saturday, we slept in a bit, got dressed, then headed out to brunch in Long Island City at The Ale Wife with a bunch of friends for brunch.

SEG’s Favourite 15 Minute Pasta: Garlic, Chili, and Olive Oil Spaghetti with Spinach, Pine Nuts and Mild Cheddar | Sassy Earl Grey. Standing hours on your feet while stirring a pot of coconut jam, kneading your own bread on the counter top for twenty minutes straight, or keenly watching a pan of cooking paella on the stove top is quite strenuous on one’s body and psyche…but the results are usually worth it. Sometimes, though, quick and easy meals are a welcomed change of pace in the kitchen. Days when far more urgent (but no more important than eating, definitely not!) Matters have you at their beck and call, and you cannot afford to leisure away time in front of the stove. For days like those, this spaghetti is both my hero and number 1 go to dish.
