Christmas Meal: Prancer’s Peppers December 16, 2016

Prepping for the holidays!

Linda from Oroville, California is making a recipe that humans and reindeer alike will enjoy.

Prancer’s Peppers got their name after a reindeer in a wonderful holiday movie Prancer. In this movie, a farm girl named Jessica takes care of a wounded reindeer that she thinks is one of Santa’s. Touching story.

Low Carb Club Sandwich December 4, 2016

Knowing the obsession of low card diet of some of our readers (looking at you, Lance!), we were very happy to see this submission with a low card club sandwich recipe.

Jen Mattson from Austin, TX makes the bread entirely out of cheese! How amazing is that!

To make her cheese bread, Jen used a silpat, a silicone baking mat that can be found in any kitchen appliances store. You can also by a pan +silicone mat together. For example, Artisan Metal Works make great mat & pan sets that have a commercial grade quality promising a long life.

For making this kind of “bread,” it is important to take hard cheeses like Parmesan or Parmigiano, Grana Padano, Pecorino Romano because they grate well and provide the proper texture to keep the sandwich in place. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you can use an aged Cheddar or an aged Gouda.

Tell us in the comments about your cheese experiments!

Spicy Mexican Potato Soup November 27, 2016

Soup always hits the spot!

In this recipe, Amanda used munster cheese. Munster cheese is a strong tasting, soft cheese named after a French region Munster where the first rounds of cheese were produced.

A tip: If the soup turns out to be too spicy for you, you can always follow Amanda’s advice and add some lime juice in the soup. Also, you may want to keep these jalapeno seeds out of your dish 😉

Bonne appetit!

Mile-High Quesadilla November 20, 2016

Stack ’em high and open-wide! This is another video from Amanda who has recently shown us how to make a delicious cocktail.

Quesadillas came into our cuisine from the central and southern regions of Mexico. Mexican quesadillas are usually cooked on a comal, smooth, flat griddle. As a variation, the quesadillas can be deep fried in oil. The fried ones are prepared more like a pastry with the filling made of vegetables and cheese.

Amanda showed us a more traditional variation cooked in oven.

Bonne appetit!

Pico de Gallo Cocktail November 17, 2016

So delicious, we had to make it into a side dish!

The best way to serve such a cocktail is in martini glasses. To add an extra twist to your party, you can use these hand painted ones. They are unique and can be a perfect gift of a house where you are having a party.

A meal tastes better when being eaten out of a pretty tableware 🙂

Tofu Lasagne November 10, 2016

Here’s another delicious and vegan meal: Tofu Lasagne!

Bryce, the chef who made Black Bean Sauce, decided to share with us another delicious recipe.

What’s tofu? According to Wikipedia, it’s s a kind of food made by coagulating soy milk. The resulting curds then gets pressed into white blocks. Tofu can be very soft, soft, firm, or extra firm. Tofu has a subtle flavor and is very versatile when it comes to cooking. It can be seasoned or marinated or sweetened and used as a dessert or in desserts. It is a great source of vegan protein and fat.

Vegan Black Bean Sauce November 7, 2016

Recipe for delicious Vegan Black Bean Sauce.
Learn from Bryce how to make this healthy sauce!

You can add the sauce to your favorite pasta (like Bryce did) or use it with any other dish you want, for example, a stir-fry.

They say, “It’s hard to be a vegan…” But with the recipes of our cooks, it is easy!

You may be wondering, what the heck are black beans? Well, in this particular context (a context of black bean sauce), it is actually dried, fermented soybeans, which get a dark brownish-black color during the curing process. That’s why they got the name.

The soybeans have a rich flavor and the black bean sauce is very flavorful, too.

Try it out, you will love it!
