Jamaican Peanut Soup

Jamaican Peanut Soup with Potato Dumplings

I love soups! They are comforting, filling, and so forgiving. If you think about it, soups and stews were what our ancestors lived on and as a results, there are so many wonderful variations around the world. Growing up in France, I rarely saw peanuts with the exception of salted peanuts my parents served as […]

Pickled Cucumber Salad

Chinese Pickled Cucumber Salad

Pickled cucumber salad is one of our favorite side cold dish. Not only is it refreshing, and cooling and it goes with just about everything. It is crunchy, hydrating, and bursting with flavors. It comes together in less than 15 minutes, but the flavors intensify if you let it marinate for a few hours.  This […]

Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Hasselback potatoes is a fun way to transform a boring looking potato into an elegant dish that looks like it is coming out of a professional kitchen! The trick with this dish is to cut thin slices leaving the bottom connected, creating a beautiful fan effect. They are crispy on the outside and soft on […]

Flax seeds loaves

Flax Seed Bread Loaves

If you know me, you know that I love bread! Whether it is a warm crispy French baguette, a nice Ciabatta roll, homemade focaccia, toasted dill rye, or some hearty pumpernickel… what I don’t love about bread though, is how addictive it is. I can eat an entire baguette in one sitting! It must come […]

Dandelion flower fritters

Dandelion Flower Fritters

Spring is the time of year when our garden has a bright display of dandelion flowers. It always reminds me of a lawn sign I saw that said ” Pardon our weeds, we are feeding the bees!” I have had dandelion tea before, but what about the flowers? Are they edible? Yes and there are […]

Vegan Pineapple fried rice

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

Of all the vegetable fried rice dishes I have sampled over the years in the US and abroad, pineapple fried rice has to be one of my absolute favorite. I have had it in Thai, Malaysian, and Indonesian restaurants. It is totally different from Chinese fried rice. It has a beautiful golden color, an almost […]

eggless quiche

Eggless Mini Pepper Quiche

Mini eggless pepper quiche! What made me think about this? I found an old black and white photo of my grandmother and I when I was 4 years old. It brought back so many happy memories! Especially of being in the kitchen watching her lovingly concocting all kinds of delicious dishes.  The colors, flavors and […]

Meatless meatballs

Spicy Meatless Meatballs

Who doesn’t like a good meatball sub, pasta with meatballs, or spicy meatballs as an appetizer? The good news is that you don’t need beef to make amazing hearty meatballs. You don’t need eggs either to bind them together.  Most store bought vegan meatballs (like Gardein’s or Impossible Meatballs) contain wheat gluten and often soy […]

Golden milk tea

Glorious Golden Milk Paste

I never had problems sleeping my whole life until I hit menopause. The combo of weight gain, hot flashes, which is essentially our hormonal system going into supersonic mode for no good reason, can really disrupt the body’s ability to fully rest, repairs and restores itself. No wonder we get cranky from time to time! […]
