Zucchini “noodles” with parsely pesto and roasted tomatoes.

June 8, 2016

I mentioned a while ago that I bought the spiralizer attachment for the KitchenAid mixer, so, I am having fun playing with it and I thought I’d share this zucchini noodles dish in case you are interested. There are different spiralizers on the market if you don’t have one and you can look at a review here. When I first made the spirals with a zucchini they started all messed up, wet and short but...

Soba noodles with two sauces

May 12, 2016

I usually have a package or two of soba noodles in the pantry to whip up an Asian flavoured lunch now and then. These are Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour and are not very thick, similar to spaghettini. They can be used with either hot or colds sauces and are  quite versatile. Soba noodles do not cook al dente like a regular pasta so be careful not to overcook them or they will become... View Article

Zucchini “pasta” with pea shoots

April 26, 2016

It has been a while since I bought any kitchen gadgets but on a recent trip to Vancouver my son recommended the KitchenAid spiralizer attachment and I went for it instantly. I have a spiralizer thingy at home but it works best with larger vegetables such as potatoes etc. The KitchenAid one apparently works with any size. (nothing to disclose, this is not a promotional post). While in Van City we had dinner at Provence... View Article

Yucatan: Villa Verde Merida (and egg and avocado breakfast recipe)

January 26, 2015

Last week we headed west of the Mayan Riviera to Merida to explore the Gulf of Mexico side of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Yucatan Peninsula separates the Caribbean sea from the Gulf of Mexico and includes three states: Quintana Roo, Yucatan and Campeche. The Yucatan is home to the Mayan people and is distinct from the rest of Mexico by its culture and cuisine. The new double lane highway from Cancun to Merida now has... View Article

Cancun – Mercado 23 and poblanos and red pepper tacos recipe

January 14, 2015

Don’t be mad at me. I am writing this post sitting on a lounge chair on the beach at Chac Al Hal Bay with my toes in the cool white sand and gaze occasionallyat the unparalleled view of turquoise waters, a few palapas and a fishing boat or two in the distance. The Christmas crowd has come and gone and the resort village is back to the few die hard regulars that fell love with... View Article

Mayan Riviera – Cooking in Cancun with Claudia and Salsa Roja Recipe

January 3, 2015

The red doors in the wall surrounding the villa swung open and we were invited into a charming courtyard dominated by a lone giant banyan tree. Lorenzo led us through the open style villa to the covered patio at the back of the house and we settled in the comfortable wicker furniture covered with colourful cushions. After a few words of introduction Lorenzo invited us to the outdoor kitchen at the end of the patio.... View Article

Mango salad rolls with chili-lime dipping sauce

November 24, 2014

Did I mentioned that I tend to get “stuck” on a few things and make them over and over for a while until I move on to something else? these salad rolls are a good example. I love eating them and love making them so here they are again. I vary the filling and the dipping sauce according to what I have on hand. Today I had mangos, arugula and pumpkin seeds (where did I... View Article

Irit’s Oatmeal Banana Cookies- guilt free and fat free

November 18, 2014

On my recent visit to Israel I stayed for a couple of nights with a long time gal-friend Irit. Irit and I now see each other infrequently so it was a special treat to spend some time together. She lives in a beautiful home in Zichron Yaakov and has a spa-like guest suite in which I stayed. The bright and serene suite has an arched window above the bed overlooking a profusion of purple hanging... View Article

Squash stuffed with sweet potatoes and squash

November 16, 2014

This week I offered a cookbook giveaway on the blog, and hope that you put your name down for one of them. This is the first time I am doing a giveaway, offering four books sent to me by a Canadian publisher as part of their promotional program. It’s kind of fun to help promote Canadian cookbook authors and give something back to you the readers at the same time. There are four books in... View Article
