Arrabiata sauce is one of my favourite things ever when it comes to pasta, and at one stage, I panicked because I couldn’t find Rao’s Arrabiata sauce in Australia. I was thinking: OH NO! How am I gonna live? All the other sauces just don’t taste as good. I was determined to make a version that somewhat taste like it.
Although I don’t think this tastes exactly like Rao’s Arrabiata sauce, it’s good enough! I do think the difference lies with the tomatoes, and for Rao’s sauces, he uses these ultra high quality Italy imported tomatoes that I think must make a big difference. Anyway, this is really sweet without any added sugar! I also love that the extra virgin olive oil was able to be simmered in very low heat so that it doesn’t turn ugly. Continue reading
YESS!! I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT!
I have been on a roll with trying to figure out how to make brownies chewy, soft and sticky, ever since I laid eyes and mouth on Dr.J’s carob brownies. OMFG that piece of heaven is literally the greatest brownie I have tasted. Curse geography that I don’t live close, because if I did, I would just go and buy one every day, but alas, I couldn’t as I’m across the other side of the country. So, I have been trying my hardest to come up with something to satisfy me until I can go back there again, because I need my chewy brownies! Continue reading
What? Seriously? You can use avocados for desserts and have it not taste terrible? I would’ve been skeptical about this a year ago, but it works so darn well I applaud whoever it was that came up with the idea of using avocados to make a chocolate dessert.
I think I first started using avocados as an ice cream base and ever since then, I learned that you can totally replace butter for avocado in just about anything. What’s great about a sweet version is the sweetness completely overrides the avocado taste, which all you really taste is a rich, chocolatey treat. Continue reading
I’ve been dreaming and planning to make these for a few days now! Ever since I got a star fruit and bunch of figs for sale at the Asian grocery store, I’ve been obsessing with figuring out how to consume those little buggers!
I don’t know why this took me so long to think of. I have been working with crispy cracker like things for a while, but putting fruits on top just never crossed my mind until I saw this amazing recipe called Tile Flatbreads that had vegetables on top. I was like… OMFG, what a ingenious idea! Continue reading
GUESS WHAT! I finally found the type of tortilla I had been searching for. I am sad to say that the tortillas I find at the regular supermarket are all filled with saturated fat, and I tend to enjoy finding healthier or versions with less fat. I was ecstatic when I found these whole grain flour tortillas at Trader Joe’s last night, it really made my night because I would finally be able to make these wraps. I have seen some really mouthwatering wraps around the internet! Continue reading
