Basic Dacquoise

Basic Dacquoise

I’ve decided to make a separate post for this dacquoise recipe, solely because it is long and I don’t need all the pictures crowding other recipes that make use of this cake layer. I originally made this dacquoise cake as the base cake for my […]

Simple Shrimp Soup

Simple Shrimp Soup

I’m a big fan of peel and eat shrimp, and I almost never buy already shelled shrimp in large sizes. This means I seemingly always have a bag of shrimp carapace in my freezer. What better use than to make my simple shrimp soup so […]

Cody’s Cottage Pie

Cody’s Cottage Pie

While I can appreciate tradition, and keeping a recipe authentic, I also like being inventive with food. So this cottage pie is not a 100% traditional English style cottage pie, but rather my take on it. That being said, it’s still quite similar to the […]

Krab Dippers – Crab Sticks Wrapped In Puff Pastry

Krab Dippers – Crab Sticks Wrapped In Puff Pastry

No, I didn’t spell crab wrong in the title. Writing Krab, with a K, is a common way of signifying that the recipe uses imitation crab, or surimi instead of the real thing. While the taste of this ingredient can be contentious to some, there’s […]

Chocolate Banana Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Banana Smoothie Bowl

After spending a month in Indonesia this past winter both Alona and myself kind of fell in love with smoothie bowls. They are a great way of eating healthy, tasty food. Not to mention getting creative with toppings and trying to make them look pretty. […]

Creamy Crab Pasta

Creamy Crab Pasta

Ok, in all fairness as you can probably see by the picture, I used imitation crab claws. However this recipe can use real crab meat as well. If you aren’t a fan of imitation crab meat but don’t want to “shell out” (pun intended) on […]

Earl Grey Victoria Sponge Mini Cakes

Earl Grey Victoria Sponge Mini Cakes

I find mini cakes so much more fun to make than full size cakes, and I like serving them to guests more as well. I think there’s something classy about having an entire cake for dessert (even if it is mini size) that is quite […]

Kumquat Bourbon Sour

Kumquat Bourbon Sour

One of my favorite things to do when traveling to new countries is to bring back a bottle of their signature alcohol. My favorite Greek island is Corfu (don’t @ me…I’ve seen plenty of other islands) and they are known for their kumquat liquor. You […]

Ribs Eggs Benedict

Ribs Eggs Benedict

I don’t know if this is a cheat entry to the website since I already have an article for Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, as well as for Hollandaise Sauce. Not to mention the meat is just leftovers from my Honey Sumac Glazed Ribs. I guess […]

Honey Sumac Glazed Ribs

Honey Sumac Glazed Ribs

One of the best things about living in Ukraine is just how cheap pork is. This whole rack of pork ribs only cost me $3! This gives me so many opportunities to get creative with different glazing recipes and rubs. These honey sumac glazed ribs […]
