Jovial Crepes

Jovial Crepes

Crepes with Non-Hybridized Flour I just made this wonderful discovery while shopping at Whole Foods. Great news for people with sensitivities to regular wheat flour. There is a kind of flour called Jovial, 100% Organic Einkorn all-purpose four. It’s unbleached and unbromated, the only wheat never hybridized (as it states on the package.) Sounds good? It’s pricy, a little over $6 […]

Shrimp Curry

Shrimp Curry

This is a Thai Curry variety and vey easy to prepare. The only thing that’s absolutely essential to get the perfect flavor is having a curry leaf, which comes from a kaffir lime tree. Sometimes I add fresh pineapple slices, eggplant, green beans, depending on what vegetable is available in the kitchen. Truly delicious with rice!

Carne Asada

Carne Asada

This is the home-style version, so it may be healthier than the one at the restaurant. I like making the Mexican rice with cilantro broth, which adds to the flavor. I like cooking it on the stove top and then stick it in the oven for 30 minutes. Good with guacamole (also home made) refried beans, salsa, and whatever else […]

I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t like berry pies. This is my most favorite one, made of 3 berries: blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. I can only show you the before pictures, because the pie disappears before I get the camera ready to shoot 🙂

Baked Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Baked Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Do you ever crave rice-vegetable dishes? This simple at first yet full of flavors dish makes rice nothing less than delicacy. What really plays a big role in the recipe is the amount of onions used. Spices, of course, are equally important. Stuff this mixture in the bell peppers and roast them in the oven for an hour, and you’ll end […]

Spinach Fettuccine with Pesto

Spinach Fettuccine with Pesto

Well this isn’t a gluten-free dish, but its spinachy flavor and the fact that it’s not loaded with dairy place it in the category of healthful meals (consider the serving size though). This mild and pleasing dish, good for spring and perfect for summer can be modified in many ways. I like to add fresh scallions, parsley and tomatoes to it, and why not […]

Fettuccine with Mushrooms

Fettuccine with Mushrooms

Satisfying the Pasta Craving There is nothing like fresh pasta, when it comes to having home-made Italian food. Making your own pasta from scratch? Then you’ll know the difference. When pasta is made right, the flavor is so delicate and satisfying, that simply adding good butter on it makes it delicious. Here I’ve used fresh pasta prepared with butter, mushrooms, […]
