100% Whole Wheat Bread: Artisan Bread in “Five” Minutes

100% Whole Wheat Bread: Artisan Bread in “Five” Minutes

I checked out the popular Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day from the library a few weeks ago and decided to make whole wheat bread. The bread was really good, but it was very dense because of the flour. After I put some butter […]

Homemade Pasta & Bolognese Sauce

Homemade Pasta & Bolognese Sauce

Noodles with italian seasoning on top. This past weekend, I decided to make my first batch of homemade pasta after seeing the detailed, yet simple process on Pioneer Woman’s website. She had a visitor called Pastor Ryan who made this pasta along with bolognese sauce […]

To-Try Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream UPDATE!

To-Try Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream UPDATE!

UPDATE: I finally tried out this recipe, but I didn’t like it. I ended up throwing it all away after two small servings of the stuff (on two different days). It was creamy; it was choppy and tasted like strawberry with no cheesecake. I couldn’t […]

Cherry “Pie-let”

Epifanía: Me gusta el Arroz con Pollo pero no me gusta el azafrán

Cuando fui a España hace dos años, mi mamá y yo cenamos en un restaurante con un buffet muy interesante (¿Te acuerdas, mamá?). Fue allí donde comí mi primer plato de paella y la primera vez que probé azafrán. Pensé que no me había gustado […]

El cinco de mayo: ¡Conchitas!

El cinco de mayo: ¡Conchitas!

Ya que mañana es el cinco de mayo y enseño español, decidí hacer pan dulce en la forma de conchitas para mis estudiantes (¡y trufas de chocolate!). Seguí una receta buenísima de Toxo Bread. Ella no solamente dio la receta sino también incluyó fotos muy […]

Healthy Shrimp Fried Rice

Healthy Shrimp Fried Rice

I made this a long time ago (along with the bad quality photos) and need to make it again. It was so good that I forgot it was a healthier version of shrimp fried rice. Since I threw it together without a recipe, I don’t […]
