Pear and Fig Instant Bran Bake

Fresh Pear and Dried Fig Instant Bran Bake

I can’t believe it took me that long to come up with this bran version of an instant bake. I mean, if there is one thing that I can absolutely not resist in life, it’s a bran muffin. Ever since I was a little girl, I always considered them to be the ultimate muffin! In […]

Honeydew Cucumber Soup

While summer is now officially behind us (such a sad thing to write!) melon season is still not over and I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to try this last cold soup before it’s too late. Soon, too soon, we’ll be passing the microphone over to rich, velvety, piping hot squash and other similar […]

Acorn Squash Gratin

Oven Baked Acorn Squash Gratin

To think that I came THAT close to not even taking pictures of this magnificent dish… As I was making it, I thought this was the biggest fail of all times. It looked nothing like what I’d envisioned! Nothing, I tell you. I’d been dreaming of a dish that resembled a stew, with big chunks […]

Cold Shrimp Salad

Super Quick and Easy Cold Shrimp Salad

In this household, this would be the ultimate “there’s-nothing-left-in-the-fridge-let’s-whip-up-something-quick” salad. The base ingredients are pretty much always the same: cooked shrimp, canned hearts of palm and canned baby corns. Then I explore the contents of the fridge and cupboards to find a few more layers of flavors and textures I want to add… or rather, […]

Chilly Watermelon Soup

Wow, I am so behind on answering comments and emails. Thank goodness I only left for a week, I feel like it will take me 2 weeks to get back on top of my game! Sheesh… I can’t even imagine how it is for those of you that have a blog that generates substantial traffic! […]

Coconut Shrimp Curry-11

Coconut Shrimp Curryless Curry

If you’ve tried, or even read a few of my recipes, you’ve probably noticed one thing about me: I’m not really one to use big and bold spices. I prefer to use a few herbs and a little bit of salt and pepper. Very rarely will you see me bring out the big arsenal, such […]

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Back from Cuba and Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Hey guys, I’m back! Wow do I have a lot of catching up to do! For starters, I will have to fill up the fridge! As you can very well imagine, it’s pretty empty for the moment… I still managed to feed myself today, though, so it’s not so bad. It will have to wait […]


7 Links Challenge, the final chapter

And last but not least… the final chapter in the 7 links challenge. THE POST YOU ARE THE MOST PROUD OF OK, that’s a fairly easy one. I would definitely have to say my Quinoa Cakes and Poached Eggs, because you see, I always had a “thing” for runny egg yolks and find that they […]


7 Links Challenge, part IV

Let’s continue with #5 and #6 A POST WHO’S SUCCESS SURPRISED YOU To be honest, I have quite a few of those. The fact that ANY of my posts would generate enough attention to make it worthy of being refferred to as “successful” is a surprise to me. But without a doubt, the one post […]


7 Links Challenge, part III

Now for #3 and 4… Since I’m not cheating with these two and am only offering the ONE required link (or even none), I’ll be covering 2 categories in this post. Besides, if I only did #3, you’d already be done reading… or almost! Where’s the fun in that? YOUR MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST I don’t […]


7 links challenge, part II

Moving on to #2… YOUR MOST POPULAR POST Pheww, that one’s much easier to answer… I wish they had started with that one! All I need to do is let the stats do the talking! Oh, it feels good being off the hook like that! Let’s see… what do the stats have to say? I […]


7 links challenge… part one

Alright, since I won’t be around for the next 7 days and since, believe it or not, I don’t have access to a laptop (I know, I must be the only blogger in the whole wide world that doesn’t have a laptop), which means I won’t be able to give you ‘live coverage’ of my […]
