Baked Egg and Spinach

The title for tonight’s post should’ve been “Olive and sun dried tomatoes polenta” but silly me realized earlier today that I totally forgot to make my polenta yesterday, so that I could leave it in the fridge to chill overnight. Sooooo, I had to swap things around a bit and decided to have tomorrow’s supper […]

Coconut Crusted Shrimp and Spicy Pineapple Salsa

It must be that I am really fed up with winter. Or maybe that tropical fruits are in season? I can’t tell for sure, but all I know is I seem to crave foods that have a tropical twist to them lately. Pineapple, coconut, mango… I think I’ve eaten more bananas in the past weeks […]

Another Quinoa Inspiration

It’s a good thing I was cooking only for myself tonight, for I wouldn’t have made many friends if my kids had been at home. Both of them hate rapini and quinoa and my daughter literally gags on sun dried tomatoes. It’s too bad really because rapini would be one of my favorite vegetables. Probably […]

Barley and Lentil Soup

Tonight, I had planned on making this soup. However, I felt extremely lazy today and decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow. I thought I would stop on my way back from work instead of making a special trip today. Now I just know that I will regret this tomorrow, but it’s a decision […]

Oatmeal with a tropical twist

I am being true to my word and have been eating oatmeal at least once a week now for the past month. I am truly enjoying this, really! By changing the flavor combinations, it just never gets boring. However, I’m about to start experimenting not only with flavors but also with combining / using different […]

Coconut Crusted Pangasius Fillet

I have to confess, I actually let out a loud moan when I finally put my camera down and took the first bite from that plate. THIS is one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had. And pangasius is now officially way high on my list of favorite fish. Probably in the […]

Cayenne Coconut Chicken Tenders

It looks like, much to my dismay, I’m having a really hard time capturing the appetizingness of chicken fingers. It’s too bad because they are something I absolutely love and, of course, I wish I was able to capture food that I love appropriately. Why is it that when I look at other people’s photos […]

Apple, Goat Cheese and Walnut Pizza

OK, I know, it sounds weird. I admit. I wasn’t even convinced myself, to be honest. But seriously, apples and cheese go so well together, it was a winning combination. Surprisingly good, I might say. Of course, I didn’t use any tomato sauce! All I did was sprinkle the dough with a dash of olive […]

Oatmeal! Another quick inspiration…

Banana was my inspiration of the day! I simply added 4 chopped dates to the oatmeal as it was cooking, then before serving, added half a mashed banana. Garnish with a tablespoon cottage cheese, a handful of chopped walnuts and voilà, super healthy breakfast is served. A good trick is to put your bananas in […]

Soba Noodle Soup

I finally went and bought some Soba noodles. I ended up spending $37. I told you there was no way I could set foot in that Asian market without spending tons of money. To my defense, I had the best of intentions this time. I didn’t even grab a cart when I got in. I […]

Fruity Basmati

Lately, I’ve been having major cravings for anything cinnamon. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. I often get really strong cravings like that. Funny thing is, for years, I didn’t really care for cinnamon at all. I would barely even add any to apple desserts that I would make, and god only knows […]
