Blackened Shishito Peppers with Garlic Chips

- Shishito Peppers are not only packed with nutrients, they are mild in heat and release a sweet flavor when cooked. I love making this addictive appetizer as a party side dish since they taste great even at room temperature.

Bear Naked Food rustic apple tart

Rustic Apple Tart

-What makes a good Rustic Apple Tart? Is it an amazing flaky crust or an irresistible fruity centre? All of them. This fail-safe recipe has a sturdy yet tender crust and the free-form shape means you do not even need a pie plate or baking pan to make this. You could use any leftover fruit in your fridge - strawberries, blueberries, peaches, etc. I'm using three granny smiths and one red gala apple for this 8-inch tart.

You could make them a few days ahead and store them in the freezer. Simply thaw for 20 minutes before cooking them in hot oil for a couple minutes. Keep them warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.

Also known as ‘Kanom Kai Nok Krata’ (in Thai), this addictive street food is extremely crunchy on the outside, yet it collapsed into a soft and chewy goodness with a hollow centre.
