I'm looking to learn about new things :) A community driven visual potluck. Prosciutto Roll-ups with Arugula, Fennel and Parmesan. Prosciutto roll-ups are the perfect appetizer. Salty strips of prosciutto wrap around leafy arugula sprigs, crispy fennel spears and nutty Parmesan shavings, binding the vegetables together in an edible cocoon basted with lemon and garlic infused oil. This is the best kind of finger food – healthy, fresh and seasonal. Feel free to fiddle with the ingredients and take advantage of the season’s produce. Be sure to include a leafy green, a crisp vegetable and cheese for a variety of textures.

Other suggestions would include a combination of basil or mint leaves, blanched asparagus spears or crispy pear slices, and pecorino, gorgonzola or manchego cheese.

Viva Avocado! - Margarita Shrimp with Grilled Avocado Guacamole. Coconut Cake Truffles. Let me just start off by saying what an awesome family I have. Yes – I’m going to take a moment to brag. We blessed Easton at our church yesterday, and I’m so lucky to have so much amazing family that came to support us.

And even more, we all went back to my house after church for lunch, and even though I originally planned to supply most of the lunch, they all pitched in and we had a delicious lunch. I love spending time with my family, and I’m so grateful that we all live so close together. One of my contributions to the meal were these cake truffles. Someone else loved them, too!! Are you a cake ball fan?

I make this stuff a few different ways so as I was preparing to write this post I tried to get exact measurements and narrow in on the best way that I make it. Purple Sweet Potato & Sesame Marble Cake.

For as long as i can remember, i detested chiffon cakes and pound cakes alot. i used to associate them with local old-school kinda bakeries where the only flavors available were pandan and chocolate. but ever since coming across them in french and japanese cookbooks where the flavor combinations and decor wise were anything but boring, i started looking at them in a different light. purple sweet potatoes are kinda like pantry staple these days. there are so many things i can do with them (think wagashi, mont blanc, chiffon) but currently on top of my to-bake list is this, the purple sweet potato & sesame marble pound cake from one of my favorite japanese cookbooks by junko fukuda, the same author of the chiffon cake book. so far i've only tried one other recipe from the book, the jasmine tea roll cake, it was good and i'm glad this one is too!
