Miso-glazed dishes are called Dengaku in Japanese. This classic Japanese side dish, Nasu(eggplant) Dengaku is very popular especially this time of year since eggplant is seen as a tasty autumn delicacy in Japan. The juicy eggplant and rich miso flavor really go well with each other!
I love the peanut butter so much that I decided to make a healthier version, as tasty as the normal one.
I love the natural flavors of the food without oils, sugar and added dressing and this simple recipe was a discovery for me.
Peanuts, like all the trail mix, have their own natural oil and it doesn't need to add anything to get a creamy and delicious result :)
And if that's not enough, the greediest palates can always add a little maple syrup and a pinch of salt... et voilà, a creamy appetite to everybody!
Favourite Memory: Diwali is almost around the corner so I would like to share once of the recipes that my mother made during this festival. Ofcourse there where so many other dishes that were made around this time of the year but Rasmalai would always be me and my brothers favourite treat. During Diwali we all used to cook as a family, everyone had a task to do and then by the time we were done there was a pleasure in enjoying the food that we made (as kids we thought we made everything but of course that wasn’t true haha) we made so many kinds of desserts, snacks and food items it’s crazy to think how we pulled that.
My dog sits right under my baby boy's high chair and watches for falling food like a hawk. One time she emerged from under the table with mac and cheese noodles stuck all over her head which made my kids die with laughter. It's one of those sweet memories I'll never forget! This recipe is for the busy mom or dad who wants less time spent cooking and a bit more quality time with their kids some evenings. It's a fool proof dinner that your kids are sure to love and you will love the quick prep time!
All of out family friends know these are one of my favourite meals. One time I was visiting Corinthia with my dad we had them three days in a row. Everyone made them because they wanted me to be happy. I was really happy. My dad appreciated eating the same thing three days in a row less than me.
I actually assumed our dad invented these!! Mom never made them (pancakes & waffles were her thing). This was his specialty & it was a treat since we never had them during the week. I always wondered why he called them “wink eyes” since it looked like a big wide open bug eyes to me.....maybe because he’d always give you that big exaggerated WINK when he served them ❤️❤️
Favourite Food Memory: When my sister and I were little, we were allowed to choose a special dinner on our birthdays. Every single year we asked for the same thing: Mum's cheese fondue! Buttery, garlicky goodness (and a mountain of cheese!). It might seem a strange choice for a child but we absolutely loved it. The first person to loose their dipped item in the gloop was widely ridiculed, and the whole performance was wrapped up with a fight over the crispy bit burned onto the pan. My favourite fondue vessel has to be either crusty baguette or broccoli (honestly, it's soo good). This is my mum's original recipe, which took a while to find because my sister had stolen the book! So clearly this is still a much cherished (and hoarded) family recipe. Thanks Mum!
Picture this, a warm summers day in my garden and the bees were buzzing. The sweet scent of tomatoes freshly picked from the greenhouse, beetroots dug up and peas popping out of their jackets. The colours were truly amazing. We were set for lunch, we just needed to add lettuce and Feta cheese! We laid the table, and added the daisy chains that we had been making across the centre.
It was delicious.... until I noticed that I had half a caterpillar on my plate! We did laugh until our bellies hurt and I did join in after a while. Sorry caterpillar ....
FAVE MEMORY: This is a NEW memory, if there is such a thing! When I first moved to California (decades ago) I had never seen an artichoke & it was love at first site! Now fast forward 40 years, I’ve returned to CA. & with this move I discovered BABY artichokes....which are now my new favorites, mainly because you can eat the entire delicious thing, & they are DIVINE!!!
