Perfect for breakfast or brunch – serve it with your favorite berries and whipped cream or turn it into dessert by adding ice cream and chocolate syrup. I used a Chef’sChoice Five-of-Hearts Waffle Maker (purchase here).

  • Matcha White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

    December 24, 2018Van

    Matcha is one of my favorite flavors. In the summer I make ice blended matcha tea in my Vitamix. In the winter I break out my “ceremonial whisk” and prepare the meanest and greenest cup of hot frothy matcha tea you can imagine. This year in the middle of my Christmas Baking Frenzy I had…

    Very few “superfoods” taste as great as hummus. Even my kids will clamor at the table waiting for a bowl of this creamy delight. Each ingredient packs a major dose of health benefits.

    My family loves it when I make Chocolate Flan Cake (recipe here), so I created an alternate version for my favorite season, Pumpkin Flan Cake.

  • Instant Pot Madras Lentils Recipe

    August 14, 2018Van

    Costco Samples have a magical way of influencing our eating habits. On a routine shopping trip my daughter tried a sample cup of Tasty Bites Madras Lentils—and proceeded to talk about them the entire trip. I reluctantly conceded and went back to purchase the package of pouches—thinking I’d be lucky to use just half of…

  • Oui French Style Coconut Yogurt Recipe

    July 27, 2018Van

    Oui is Yoplait’s best yogurt, minimal ingredients are used and the yogurt is cultured in adorable glass jars – it creates a creamy texture without any thickeners or straining. The coconut flavor is one of my favorites, my copycat of their yogurt doesn’t include the coconut jelly on the bottom – it’s just pure creamy…

    If you’re from Southern California you can understand my obsession with Tommy’s Chili Burgers. Their tomato-less chili con carne is very unique to the SoCal Region, often found smothered on anything you can imagine—from fries & hot dogs to burgers. The Original Tommy’s was opened in 1946 by Tommy Koulax. The original location is still…

    These Crab Rolls are very similar to Lobster Rolls, without all the extra work. I used lump crab meat and tossed it with a few other staple pantry items. These are so quick to make and they are absolutely delicious. Enjoy them with some crispy potato chips and a large iced tea or pale ale!
