I'm really glad that I have finally started this blog to follow my true passion.
I recently went to a gathering hosted by Hearst Magazines where Celebrity Chef Alex Hitz, House Beautiful’s new food contributor and author of best-selling cookbook My Beverly Hills Kitchen, prepared a fabulous three-course dinner.
For dessert he served these fabulous bars which dessert blew me away. The recipe is actually really simple and I substituted almonds for walnuts but you can use any nuts you like.
Here is an Indian classic. You see it on every menu in Indian restaurants all over. This is a lightened up, home-style version of the dish which is really delicious. Paneer can be bought from any Indian store.
This past year my nephew really foxed me when he asked me to make him a “Plant vs. Zombies” cake for his 6th birthday. I had no clue what he was talking about and went scrambling to the net to find out what these creatures looked like.
Thanks to good old ebay I managed to find a set of miniature toys that I could decorate the cake with. Here’s what I made for him.
This super healthy recipe for fish cakes is from Chiva-Som, which is a wellness spa in Thailand and has some of the best food I have ever eaten. I love these fish cakes – you can use any fish you like and feel free to add spice to the recipe.
I recently was invited to a media event where the Kenmorebrand marked its 100th Anniversary. The event was celebrated with a live “cookmore” demonstration and tasting of super eats from Kenmore’s in-house chef Kari Karch showcased easy recipes, filled with flavor and fun.
This dish was one of my favorites – a really healthy and easy green hummus made with asparagus and edamame.
