Healthy, refreshing and delicious Vietnamese Shrimp Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Sauce

Vietnamese Shrimp Roll with Peanut Hoisin Sauce ((Gỏi Cuốn with Nước Lèo) I love serving Vietnamese rolls, DIY style with family or when friends come over. It makes a fun social dining activity. Unfortunately rolling their own food was not some people’s idea of fun when I serve them at a bloggers potluck 2 months back. Upon request, I rolled 12 of them leisurely while waiting for the rest to arrive. Continue Reading →

I jumped right in when I saw Dr John Cassone organized a 2 Weeks Fruits & Veggie Cleanse on Google+ right after Easter. Since my 7-day Raw Food Detox at Bahay Kalipay Retreat, I had been indulging more than usual over the months, causing me to feel bloated and sometimes sluggish.

Inidian Spicy Lamb with Peas and Rice

Confession time. I suck at meal planning. And I don’t enjoy doing it. I always read about how great it is to do meal planning.

Baked Vegetable Chips with Tahini Dip

Vegetable Chips with Tahini Dip I would crave for salty potato chips once every few moons and get a bag of all natural chips. After 1/3 through the bag in a sitting, I would get some weird reactions and just couldn’t stand the sight of it. It’s probably my body sending me signals. Talk about fast reaction. So what would a girl to do when she has the cravings again? Bake some sweet potato fries and chips. Sometimes I made them for breakfast too. Continue Reading →

Ratatouille's Ratatouille (Thomas Keller's Confit Byaldi)

Ratatouille’s Ratatouille is by far my most elaborate and crazy cooking attempt. It took me 4 hours. Phew. My Wild Mushroom Quiche for Nutriplus baking competition looked easy compared to this dish. The 4 hours of hard work was worth it after the photo received lots of “wow” when I posted on my social media accounts and it was featured on Sorted Food’s Eye Candy VideoContinue Reading →
