I recently received the EurKitchen Whipped Cream dispenser to review and play with and now I'm addicted to this cool culinary tool! This whipped cream dispenser converts fresh whipping cream into beautiful pressurized cool whip, or in my case creamy chocolate mousse.
Boiling pasta is pretty easy, right? But sometimes I just have to resort to shortcuts to get dinner out quickly. I love the yaki soba noodles that are precookied and prepacked from health food or Asian stores. All I need to do is quickly stir- fry up some fresh veggies, add some seasoning and toss in my noodles with a bit of liquid.
There are so many cool gadgets and gizmos out there, that life is truly starting to look like a Jetson's episode. With school starting soon, there are some fun new products out that will not only make life easier, but also add a whole new layer of cool for your student, young or old.
In my ongoing series of foods to make during the Olympics, I have decided to make 'Lucky Black Eyed Peas'. Black eyed peas with greens are traditionally made in the South to bring luck into the New Year. The theory is 'eat poor' on New Year's Eve (peas), and then one will be rich into the New Year. Many Olympians who have trained their whole lives for this event, do come from humble beginnings.So in the spirit of the black eyed pea luck tradition, I hope all Olympians will reap the rewards of their tremendous efforts and experience great success after the event - they most certainly deserve it!
The Olympics in Rio start tonight, so what better way to celebrate than with food! While finely tuned Olympians go for the Gold, I'll be going for my bowl! (Heh Heh..) I did a little research on Brazilian food and learned that stews are common and easy. Brazilian Bobó is typically made with chicken, shrimp or fish and is served over rice. I decided to go for a vegetarian option so I could really taste the vegetables. Truthfully I was too lazy to go out and buy shrimp today. Shrimp would have been nice. The most appealing part of this recipe however, is that it has yuca! I have never cooked with yuca root (also known as cassava), so this was extra exciting. I also received a beautiful new saute pan from WaxonWare to review, so the stars were aligning for this dish.
There is an ample supply of rainbow carrots right now in the stores, so I have been making up batches of Spicy Pickled Mexican Carrots.
I recently got a Fritatta pan and am finding that I want to cook just about everything in it now! Here's a quick and easy French Toast recipe with fresh mango that will turn out fluffy and delicious. Dare I say it's failproof?
Tortilla De Patatas, also known as a Spanish Omelette, is a typical dish prepared in Spain as an easy appetizer. It may be served warm, room temperature or chilled. It's a basic egg and potato combo that may be baked or cooked in a pan.
I love entertaining and typically put a lot of effort into my party-planning. However, over the weekend I found myself scrambling to come up with food and decor for a last minute evening party.
