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

Baked Mushrooms And Feta

I just bought some Emile Henry brulee dishes because I had plans to make creme brulee for Alona. However the first thing I made was a simple shiitake mushrooms and feta baked dish for one of our breakfasts. When I made my ribs eggs Benedict, […]

Cherry Chocolate Mousse Cake With Mirror Glaze

Cherry Chocolate Mousse Cake With Mirror Glaze
