Banana bread with a thick caramel glaze - what could be better?
July 13, 2011
I first discovered jicama at my favorite Mexican Restaurant in Michigan. It's a sweet root vegetable eaten as a "palate cleanser" after a decadent meal of spices and flavors.

You can see a picture of the Tartine bread pudding above. Miraculous, I tell you, is an understatement. The Tartine bread pudding was moist with a rich custard and just the right amount of tartness from the early summer strawberries.

To counterpoint the grilled meats, I made some rose flavored berry agar-agar. The colors of the berries are perfect for the holiday.

This Vegan Chocolate Mousse Torte is an example of that. How can you make mousse vegan? A simple creamy ingredient does the trick…Avocado!

I made these for a summer picnic with friends at Regent’s Park a couple of weeks back. I thought they were just ok though, could be improved upon! The sponge was a little dry, as it usually is with genoise cakes so I soaked them with green tea syrup.

We love roasted beets. We also love goat cheese. We especially love when the two ingredients are combined to yield the yummiest result… roasted beet and goat cheese salad. It’s the perfect pairing of the two ingredients. If it’s on the menu, it’ll end up on our table for us to enjoy!

We both particularly liked this dish, so I figured I’d share it here, as I hope to do with some of our future meals. Lamb is my personal favorite protein and I’m lucky that Ryan likes it as much as I do! We prefer ours quite rare (almost still “baa”-ing, even), but if you like a more well-done product, you can simply increase my recommended cooking times by a minute or two.

I made this pea salad last Sunday for lunch. We had a bunch of peas still from the huge batch batch I bought when I saw Ontario peas were in at to the market, a nice radicchio hanging around as well a beautiful new chunk of pecorino cheese picked up the day before that I was dying to try.

Black & White cookies are a New York classic - they are traditionally made from scoops of leftover cake batter baked like cookies, then glazed with half white and half chocolate icing. In fear of messing up the cake batter version, I made my own versions of cookies with my sugar cookie dough. I hope not too many New Yorkers are offended - my apologies!

I was just so enchanted with Elissa’s Independence Day Cake posted on her 17 and Baking site site that I pushed it right to the top of the ‘PIHSIDLYATHOORIHS’ file. The Fourth of July, being my favorite holiday might have biased me just a little.

There are very few times when I tell people “just try it” when it comes to food. I’m a picky eater and I detest when people tell “just try it” or “you won’t know if you don’t try it”. I’m open to a certain degree and will try most things, so when I do not it’s for a damn good reason.

While the above picture may look like any other ordinary pasta dish, it's anything but. Inspired by my good friend and food mentor, Giuseppe Viterale of Ornella Trattoria, I decided to try my efforts at what he calls Pasta Latte, pasta boiled in milk.

Here is a fun and easy treat for the 4th of July – Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes! Well, faux-ice cream cone cupcakes to be exact. Cone + Cupcake + Frosting.

Delish and a very similar texture to maple candy. Not a candy thermometer in sight!

I’ve “met” a number of very talented bloggers over the last few months. Each and every food blogger has a unique style of cooking and that’s what makes surfing the web to find new food blogs somewhat like a culinary journey.

Seriously, the reason is Filipino Style Spaghetti is always prepared with tomato sauces. If I use fresh tomatoes (which I do sometimes with olive oil –> yum!) alone, it won’t be Filipino style anymore.

This is often my go-to meal: sauteed chicken breasts (with or without a sauce), steamed veggies and a salad. Very easy and healthy and tasty.

Call me old fashioned....but I wouldn't call these enchiladas homemade because I used imitation crab meat and canned enchilada sauce. They were still good though and I dolled up the canned enchilada sauce to make it more creamy and luscious!!

Have you ever gone back to basics in the kitchen to see if you can still cook a traditional, simple recipe? In our global and multicultural society, we are so into cooking new recipes to experiment on exotic food pairings (mango with tuna steak or potatoes, capers and coffee ), or just trying to impress our friends with recipes from Michelin-starred chefs. This is fine (and so much fun!!), as long as we do not forget that simple recipes with few, high quality ingredients, often means more.
