Homemade Tahini

This homemade tahini is incredibly easy to make and super-friendly to your pocket too. Store bought versions usually cost over $10 for a tiny jar. I used this for my upcoming Easy and Smooth Hummus recipe this Wednesday. There are many ways to use this beautiful paste. I.e salad dressing, sauce, or even in desserts...

Easy Sandwich Bread

Anyhow, I’ve always been very very reluctant to jump into the bandwagon of bread-making. 1) I do not owe a bread-making machine. 2) Waiting 3 hours for the dough to rise is something I do not look forward to 3) What if after spending all that time and effort, the end result is not what I expected? If you realize, there is a very lacking category space for bread in my blog. Until now...

Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

If you have made my Outrageous Chocolate Cookies or Red velvet Chocolate Chips Cookies (hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!), you should know my immense love for soft and chewy cookies. Not to mention chocolatey.The craze for adding salt to desserts has been going on for quite some time (salted caramel being the top favorite combination). Since Tiger and meh-bear are salted dessert junkies, I decided to jump into the bandwagon and make these salted chocolate brownie cookies for them...

Cream Cheese filled Banana Cake

Couple of days ago, I was doing my weekend grocery run and guess what? There were a few big bags of ripe bananas sitting at the fruits weighing station, crying out “Buy Me”, with a price tag of $2 bucks! The offer was too irresistible and since we are huge banana fans, it would be fitting to add that bag into our grocery cart...

Crispy Pan Fried Ddeokbokki

If you don’t already know, I’m a super-duper big fan of Korean food. Do you know they actually serve different banchan (small side dishes) to Korean customers vs non-Korean customers in Korean restaurants? I contemplated so many times to learn Korean language so I could order in Korean and hopefully pass off as one, so they’ll serve me those secret speakeasy side dishes. Tiger thinks I’m Crazy – with a capital C.

Warm Mushroom and Cheese Bruschetta

Today, I’m going to combine one of my favorite fungi - white button mushroom with some leftover nutty cheese to make this quick and easy warm mushroom and cheese bruschetta.Oh before I forget, I want to share a little about the piece of equipment I used to grill my bread. It was something I wanted on my “wish-list” for quite a while. Since Tiger got me this Brustolina from Italy, I’ve been dying to try it out.

Homemade Guacamole

This homemade guacamole post almost did not make it to this page had it not been for my persistent 14-year old. Truth be told, I was reluctant and embarrassed. Oh, don’t get me wrong. This homemade guac is nothing but absolutely delicious and addictive. (If you are an avocado lover, you would know what I’m talking about. But if you are not, it’s never too late to try!) But because it is so ridiculously easy to prepare, I’m not sure if anyone would be interested...
