I make a ridiculous amount of muffins.
They’re the perfect thing when you want to use up a little bit of coconut milk or the last 1/4 cup of a few different kinds of nuts or dried fruit, or if you have an apple or banana that isn’t good for much else except baking. (more…)

I share a lot of my meals on Instagram (I think it’s part of the whole you know you’re a food blogger when…), but so many never make it to the blog. (more…)

We’re a week into the New Year, and I’m always curious as to whether people make New Year’s resolutions or not.
I’ve noticed that people I talk to are split just about down the middle in their line of thinking; about half make resolutions at the start of a New Year and the other half says they try to make a resolution any time a change is needed. (more…)

That is, until he saw me add cottage cheese to the blender in a moment of inspiration. (more…)

The only kind of juice Mike likes is carrot.
I don’t like to make it for him every day (a friend of a friend’s cousin’s mom swears that her baby turned orangish from feeding her carrots every day!), but I make him a fresh glass of it a couple times a week in the morning when I make my own juice blend. (more…)

A while ago when my friend brought me back wood apples from Sri Lanka, she also brought me another sweet treat: pineapple!
If you’ve never had Sri Lankan pineapple, it is surprisingly quite different from Hawaiian pineapple.

Like spring cleaning for the house, I know quite a few people who do an annual detox every spring. I’ve done one for the past three years, usually around the beginning of April, but this year I’m a little late (yeah, oops). Being in Kuwait and having the weather already feel like the hottest part of summer back home, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for a spring detox. (more…)
