Vegan Matcha pancakes

Matcha Pancakes With Mango Coulis

Green tea matcha pancakes? Sounds a little like a breakfast straight out of Dr. Seus! Turns out, matcha green tea powder can be used in many creative ways in the kitchen. I started my adventure with matcha as a replacement for my favorite morning drink, a strong cup of black tea with some non-dairy creamer. […]

The Power of Prayer – My New Anthem!

A dear friend sent me this short video a while back and it has been playing in my mind ever since. I have to say that it has been a source of great comfort and hope. Considering all that is going on these days, I thought I would share it. Even though this isn’t directly […]

Traditional foccacia

Homemade Focaccia Bread

If you like pizza, you will love homemade focaccia bread and when you see how easy it is to make it, you will wonder why you never thought of making it before. Since we began the confinement, we have been making it almost every week. Every time changing the toppings depending on the mood and […]

Grilled vegetable paninis

Yummy Grilled Vegetable Paninis

Most countries have a version of a grilled sandwich. France calls it Croque-monsieur, Americans call it a grilled sandwich, Italians, grilled paninis, you get the idea.

Review of Farm Spirit Restaurant

Months before the pandemic, we chose to treat ourselves to a special 12-course meal at Farm Spirit for my birthday. I went ahead and made a reservation. I knew that it was going to be a very different kind of experience. Instead of the usual entrée, main dish and desert, you are served a multi-course meal, […]

Stir-fry with yakisoba noodles

Quick Yakisoba Noodles with tofu

Yakisoba noodles are great for a quick meal and stir-fries. You can find them in most grocery stores in the refrigerated section, usually near the tofu and other vegetarian products. How convenient, since this recipe calls for tofu!  I would stay away from the packaged sauce that often comes with dry yakisoba noodles because it is full […]

Best Vegan Saffron risotto

The Best Vegan Saffron Risotto Milanese

Saffron risotto is an Italian specialty that turns bland white rice into a decadent rich creamy dish. I can still close my eyes and remember eating this dish at my parent’s friend hotel in Italy when I was a little girl. The golden hue from the saffron, the rich creaminess of the rice was so […]

Cold gazpacho soup
