Raw, raw, raw raw raw

Experimenting with the food processor can be fun and beneficial. I threw in carrots, bell pepper, and cabbage in the processor and voila! A tiny dash of mayo and lemon, and you have yourself a coleslaw! Plus: Eating foods raw= taking in all the vitamins and nutrients. Take that, future health problems. #winning

Sweet Potato Chicken Curry

Still working on my curry skills lol!

This turned out very different from from last time.

Im not sure what I did exactly to make it so different. It was yummy none the less!

Pomegranate-Avocado Salad

Iv'e been drinking pomegranate juice almost everyday! It has tons of antioxidants in it and its delicious! Decided to buy the fruit and have been waiting for the right moment to use it. It ended up on my salad. Dressing- Lime-olive oil-pinch salt- agave

Home made granola !

I loove granola! But I find that the packages you buy have so much extra junk in them and I find it often to sweet. I decided to make my own pan roasted granola this morning. It was quick and easy and it made the whole kitchen smell so good. So why not choose your ingredients and make your own!

Vegan dinner

Sometimes I get a craving for potato gratin. But Im not a big fan of using cream in my food. So I used oat cream instead and it work out perfectly. The potatoes came out creamy and delicious without being to heavy. I learned this recipy from Fred (during his vegan days) made some almond coated tofu and a avomato salad to go with it.

Divine !!

I made this salad to go with the lamb. I was inspired by indian raita. Dressing- lill yogurt with olive oil a little agave, rice vinegar taste of grated lemon peel pinch & salt n pepper, mixt it with cucumber tomato and sweetie jaffa grapefruit which I peeled ( its a bit less bitter than a normal grapefruit) and layd on a bed of baby spinach and arugula salad. I had roasted and crushed some cumin for my curry but had a bit left over. Added the spice to my roasted almonds and garnished the salad with them. It was divine!

Lamb Curry

After being at Rags for New Year I was so inspired by her curry I had to try it at home. The lamb meatballs was something improvised since I had lamb in my fridge. It turned out good for my first time making it, but I will definitely have curry again and try to relive the experience at Rags. Next time chicken though ( Mari chan no like lamb!!)

Baking Bread

I love the process of baking bread! All the different stages and how the dow grows really makes it feel like your creating something. Here I made a wholewheat bread with some seeds!

Ra ra ra men

One of my favorite Japanese dishes. The only problem is I hate eating carbs without feeling guilty. So I replaced the noodles with shitake soy mushroom noodles. The soup is simply miso, hondashi, and a little bit of sambal for an extra kick. The toppings are completely up to you. This is definitely one of those freestyle recipes. <3


Curry Crabmeat fried rice with a side of miso sauteed cucumbers. The fried rice is so easy. I simply took a instant packet of curry fried rice and friend it with brown rice as I through in the crabmeat. Boyfriend loved it!!! I think the title gives it more flavor than I actually had to add.
