Blueberries are not only great on pancakes, toast and in muffins, you could also use them to spice up savory dishes. Blueberries, with their sweet yet discreet flavor is perfect to mix in salads or as a sauce. The sweet and salty combination will definitely liven up your meals. We are huge fans of homemade salsa but instead of using fresh tomatoes (Which is usually the default choice), I’ve decided to make it with fresh blueberries! This simple yet delicious homemade blueberry salsa makes a perfect topping for your favorite tacos, nachos and of course this crispy potato patty! Store leftover salsa in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Potato is such a versatile staple. From creamy mash to oven-roasted, every way is simply a comfort to my soul and belly. Did you know one medium potato has just about 110 calories, fat, sodium and cholesterol free? Nutrition facts aside, this Crispy Kimchi Potato Hash is really delicious to serve at brunch or as a side. The addition of kimchi is unconventional but it does add another depth of flavor to this flavourful dish!

- Ever since I’ve bookmarked this recipe from America’s Test Kitchen, I’ve been eager to put this Ultimate Sticky Buns to test. Sticky Buns are really like cinnamon rolls with a nutty, gooey caramel topping. Most of the sticky buns I’ve tasted tend to be greasy and overly-sweet. Honestly, I’m not a fan of overly buttered baked goods. This recipe promises light, moist and fluffy dough thanks to the addition of flour roux (aka tang zhong) which is a cooked flour paste. This method can also be used for soft bread rolls and buns

These soft, pillowy bites of yeasted dough are as delicious as they look. Oh, for those of you who are not acquainted with Beignet, it is usually made with yeast, bread flour, evaporated milk, deep fried and dusted with a generous coating of icing sugar. Think of it as the cousin of churros. This no-machine needed dough can be easily mixed together by a wooden spoon or hand and instead of deep frying them, I popped them into a preheated oven of 180°C/350°F and baked them to golden brown perfection. You could definitely deep fry them as well in medium hot oil for a couple of minutes...
