Great with fresh made pasta
Inspired by the dessertgasm that is the Striped Cinnamon Squares from One Lucky Duck/ Pure Food & Wine, recipe from the GirlieGirlArmy.com (guide to glamazon living!)
SOOO EASY! very yummy, i like to pop one after dinner as my dessert.
from good house-keeping. very very good.
simple, elegant and pretty healthy!
Chef Nobu's famous black cod, a great asian recipe for beginners.
I got this recipe out of some pamphlet that Rutgers University gave me because I was a vegetarian. It's actually not too bad.
use a cast iron skillet!
make sure your avacadoes are just ripe enough
Great with a cold buckwheat noodle salad
Only 80 calories!
my favorite martini. i'm such a sucker for lychees.
delicious and nutritious!
I used 5-spice powder instead of seperately using cinnamon, anise, cloves, pepper and fennel..... it's quicker and all the same stuff!
crave maui taro burgers all the time - found some taro at the market, recreated it with some success!
so so yummy. the original recipe used pancetta at the beginning, but i dont eat any meat...i actually snuck a pat of butter in at the beginning where it called for the meat.
these measurements are guesses - i just kind of play it by ear! feel free to add what you like - ive used shrimp before. there are substitutes for fish sauce if you need to go vegan/vegetarian, but its not quite the same.
(never) home makers
somehow i inherited the family job of making guac for every family party from my grandfather...good thing i love it!
from (never)home makers' blog:
Sometimes the best inspiration is having practically no groceries in the house!
i am broke and came up with something yummy from pantry items. thank you robin miller!
sooooooo delicious and comforting.
I'm broke. Seriously broke. My food stamps don't refill until August 5th, so in the mean time, I'm making use of the SNAP program's recipe finder, to use up all those canned and frozen veggies I've been hoarding! Of course I will be spicing things up my own way with all of the wonderful herbs growing in my little container garden.
I was bored and needed to bake! So I tried to health-a-size this recipe by replacing the sour cream with So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage. I probably should have added more baking time because it fell apart when I took it out. I always forget how exact you need to be with your substitutions in baking...a night in the fridge firmed it up nicely though!
I love Julia child, but all that butter and cream doesn't love me. I was craving quiche though, and had tons of fresh shrooms, so I updated her mushroom quiche to make it much healthier.
i cut this recipe in half, and sprinkled some parmesean cheese on top.
you may need to add some extra water as it cooks, mine kept getting too thick.
it's good on top of pasta too!
