Goat Cheese Panna Cotta

Some weeks are better than others. This week, though, I was killing it in the kitchen. Sometimes, I feel like I can be a culinary genius but then I quickly get off my high horse after an episode of Chopped. Although, a TV show or a professional would not be able to strip me away from…

Baked Mussels + Hard Liquor

This post is likely just long overdue. Last Christmas, everyone was ready to eat something different. My mom is a seafood fan while my father’s a whisky fan. My siblings and I are mix and matching type of people. I decided to take care of the appetizers this year, while my sister hosts, my brother…

Clean Loaded Tostones

I have made this recipe over and over again but only a my house. I have yet to to test these babies on my Caribbean and/or Hispanic friends. For sure I will not tell them these were not fried because I will get dissed right away. Therefore, I will have to trick them. Yes, lie….

Turkey Sausage Rutabaga Pie

Mi amigos! I am proud to introduce to you a breakfast, a lunch, a dinner or a snack (if you’re freaky) which will blow your low carb minds. It is a fairly fast and easy recipe that is immersed with much flavor as the natural aromatics in the dish compliment each other greatly. It is a rich meal for…

Tomato and Olive Tapenade

The moment I felt the sweet kiss of pinot grigio, my toes curled, my eyelids got heavy and my knees got weak. I was smitten by the aromatic and the bitter side of grigio. It was like my interpretation of fifty shades of grey if I read the book or saw the movie. On a serious…

Zucchini Crust

I just know that I have so many that are skeptical on how tasty this recipe can be. Let’s face it. It is a substitute for a super junk food. Pizza dough without the flour and unnecessary fillers make quite the difference to persons with health or fitness goals. When I was first introduced to…

Caprese Pasta (Zoodle) Salad

I really cannot believe I grew up not being a big fan of the American/Italian meals and had thought that Italian meals are exactly just that: Cheese crust stuffed pizza or spaghetti and meatballs. I was not to be taken to an Italian restaurant until I grew up and out of that phase quick. Now…

Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Muffins

    For the love of brunch, the delightful incorporation of breakfast and lunch. There is no better way to celebrate this synergetic bruncheon than under a breezy sunlight on a late Sunday morning or at a picnic during the tam-tams with a glass of Prosecco on one and the muffin on the other! Can you smell…

Orange and Beet Salad

Something I am loving right now is obviously the weather but even better is the different food that we have access to this time of year. Produce taste that much sweeter and richer.  Beets and oranges are food that we commonly have an exuberant supply of during the winter season. This month, right in between…

Kale, Radicchio, Grapefruit Salad

This weather sucks and feels like winter is lasting forever. Working night shifts can influence your eating habits. I am in an office with 3 or 4 guys that order pizza, offer me cookies and chocolate during my shift which I politely decline although my palate is craving otherwise. I am on a journey of…
