Today is a day of celebration because it is my birthday. Happy birthday to me! I’m not the type to have big birthday celebrations. Growing up, my birthdays usually flopped, ranging from nobody showing up to my skating party to family being sick to just not being very good days. However, the one thing that [...]© 2007-2012 Chocolate Moosey | Carla Cardello
It’s Seriously Soup day today, featuring one of my favorite bloggers, Serena, who authors a blog called Seriously Soupy. Serena started Seriously Soupy as a creative outlet for herself after her first daughter was born, which combined her passion for cooking with an interest in learning more about soups and soup making. Since it started, [...]
Do you love Jambalaya? I never did until I made a visit to New Orleans. After that it was love at first sight… I can’t get enough of this starchy-meaty goodness. Yes, those are legit descriptive words in my book. I first visited New Orleans 3 years ago on a business trip. Going to [...]The post Stovetop Andouille and Shrimp Jambalaya appeared first on Katie's Cucina.
For years, this has been my go-to recipe to bring to gatherings. It's easy to prepare and always a hit. Everyone will beg you to make it again and again!
Happy Birthday Carla!!! There is something really wonderful about celebrating a birthday. However, celebrating someone special on their birthday makes that birthday celebration ten times better. Today is all about my friend Carla from Chocolate Moosey, because today is HER special day. Today is her birthday and I am so proud to be attending [...]
Hello! Yah, yah! Today’s recipe should go with my Cinco de Mayo week, but in my opinion I could soooooooo eat Mexican everyday, and honestly I don’t think I need a reason to bring on another Mexican dish. However my Husband may beg to differ. I can’t help it, I just love all of the southwest flavors, [...]
Living along the coast of Massachusetts, we are fortunate that we have access to affordable fresh fish, so we eat seafood often. In particular, we eat a lot of cod – it’s a versatile fish with a mild flavor and firm but flaky white flesh – and it’s perfect for recipes like our Cod Fish [...]The post Cod Fish Cakes appeared first on A Family Feast.
Today is a very special day. It just so happens to be Carla’s birthday today. You know Carla; the very talented baker over at Chocolate Moosey. She’s the gal that brings you amazing desserts like Award-Winning Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes, Lemon Coconut Cinnamon Rolls, Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshakes, and Funfetti Cheesecake. Um, yes please, I’ll take [...]
I know it was days ago, but let’s discuss Monday since that was an unusual day for me. Shall we? I started out by going out shopping alone. That’s such a rarity and I honestly don’t mind taking the kids but it limits what I can do for how long. Plus, the mall doesn’t open [...]
I recently wrote a story about all things radish!! Do you love radish? How do you use it? Do share! This photo is a picture of my friend’s radish pickle! Radish soaking in vinegar and spices.. Mmmm.
We’ve had such an interesting spring here in New Orleans. It has stayed cooler much longer than normal. I’m not really sure why that is, but I have been enjoying every minute of it. I’m currently writing this while sitting with my kitchen window open, breeze blowing in with some gentle sunlight accompanying it. Pure [...]The post Spicy Candied Pecans Recipe appeared first on culi
You guys know I LOVE cooking and eating and treat myself with tasty meals. but I also love taking care of my body, exercise, eat clean and be healthy. I regularly workout (running, cycling, dancing) and I do integrate my diet with protein supplements like protein powder and bars. Unfortunately all food integrators are quite …The post Homemade Protein Bars appeared first on Expat Cucina.
What does it mean to be truly Canadian? Buying milk in plastic bags? Designing your Halloween costume to fit over your snowsuit? Celebrating Thanksgiving in October? Well, what about butter tarts? You know up until last week I actually thought that the rest of the world knew what these were, until my mother promptly corrected [...]
I recently received the latest Williams-Sonoma catalog in the mail and I love to peruse it each month to see what new kitchen gadgets they have; as well as look to find some new recipe inspiration. This time I found a recipe for Chick Peas with Lemon, Oregano and Olives that looked wonderful. So I decided to give it a little twist.
The day before we had grilled some sausage and ha

Cháo cá (Vietnamese for fish congee) is Aria's favorite dish these days. At one and a half years old now, she's able to eat pretty much anything and everything. But don't be fooled by its appearance; rice congee isn't only meant for babies. Cháo is a very popular meal in Asia; I personally love it too.
In this version of congee I cook rice in fish stock until it be
Qubani Ka Meetha. Though I'm from south india but never heard of this sweet before. One more thing just want to add I don't like apricot at all. When i saw my email this was the challenge for this month, for some time i thought i will skip this month challenge. But my hubby told me without trying how can you give up and it was a real challenge for me to cook this sweet. I asked my hubby will y
Cheesecake has long been one of my very favorite desserts. That rich and creamy filling atop a buttery graham cracker crust. Mmm, mmm good. Add caramel and toffee into the mix and we’ve definitely entered into the realm of irresistible. Let’s be honest – caramel sauce can give most any dessert an instant upgrade. Ben doesn’t have nearly the sweet tooth that I do, but h
I've posted some ho-hum stuff lately (hey--they can't all be culinary masterpieces like this or this), but I'm really, really excited to share these brownies.

I think a minestrone is the perfect winter soup, it is actually a full meal, with a slice or two of organic farmers bread, it is like being in heaven.
There are many ways of doing a minestrone, when I do it for myself there is always a little bacon in it and I use a very light chicken stock to fill up the soup, but of course one can leave all meats away to make it a truly ve
Have you ever cooked an artichoke? Talk about intimidating. These vegetables are a little scary. They're awkwardly shaped, spiky and almost look like a flower. But guess what? They are DELICIOUS!! Let me show you a fast way to prepare them and a couple yummy ways to cook them. Step One: Cut the stem off at the base Step Two: Cut off the crown of the artichoke Step Three: Cut off the

This is the best pulled pork that I have ever made. I was super delicious! I loved the flavors. I ate leftovers for days and never got tired of it.
We don't have a fancy grill that we can control the temperature on, so I made this pork in the slow cooker. I thought it turned out great. I prepped the pork the night before and refrigerated it overnight. I threw the pork in the slow
Calzones make for a hearty and filling snack in a picnic basket or an entree for a meal on a hot platter. I love making calzones as they are so easy to put together, can be refrigerated for up to three days and taste super hot or cold!! Just add a salad and a cup of milk and you are good to go.
I made the dough for the calzone covering with a combination of atta and whole wheat whole grai
As any enthusiast will tell you, wine is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable food or drink items available. It’s not simply that wine tastes so good, though many are think that the right wine is well beyond delicious. What makes wine so truly enjoyable is that it can be experienced rather than simply tasted.The post Five Wonderful Wine Destinations appeared first on Lover Of Creating Flavo
Guisadong upo is one of the sautéed vegetable dishes popular in Philippines more commonly on provinces where bottle gourds are abundant.

Asparagus, shallots. ginger, garlic, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, and grape tomatoes. All of these vegetables have different textures and density. The beauty of stir frying is the ability to add the vegetables at the right time to ensure that everything turns out perfectly... all within just a few minutes.The asparagus is briefly blanched prior to beginning the stir fry. After blanching, I rinsed
Every time I eat an avocado, I think it’s a trick. Something can’t be THAT good and THAT good for you; life just doesn’t work like that. And yet, unless science is lying to me, that delectable avocado is loaded with nutrients and creamy richness. It’s miracle food, my friends. Now that I’m on a [...]

A few days back, a bunch of bloggers including me got an invite to review the Bar " Shimmer "and the Mediterranean restaurant " Azure " at Vivanta by Taj. Taj is a big brand in itself and I was much looking forward to this evening. Me and Mohit were off on the roads of Bangalore, beating the heavy Friday eve traffic and were almost on time for the event. It was really good to catch with the fellow

One day last week, in Baltimore it was over 80 degrees and a great day to ride the water taxi all around the Inner Harbor and as usual, I needed to have a plan (or else we would be going in circles, did I tell you The Nudge is a terrible navigator?) and while I still had feeling in my feet, a tour of Fort McHenry was in order. Off we went in search of the Star Spangled Banner (to those of you not
I guess every birthday these days is a reminder of how fast time is flying by. It's hard to believe our sweet not-so-little-anymore Kendry is two years old. And yet at the same time, the newborn stage of two years ago seems so long ago compared with his giggly, chatty personality who loves and wants to be a part of anything and everything. The Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb theme came together a fe
Looking at me, you wouldn't know it, but I actually love eating things like Macho Nachos.
Terrible, I know, but I'll be the first to admit I'm a sucker for marketing traps and the name got me.
Maybe it's the record heat we've been having here in Southern California, frying my brain.

This salad tastes even better the day after you make it. It is a perfect picnic salad.Don't tell anyone this... on days when I'm feeling guilty about what I had for lunch (or dinner yesterday), I have a big bowl of these beans for dinner. The combination of the parmesan, basil, shallots, and balsamic give these beans such an amazing flavor.Don't tell anyone this either, but I can eat t
Simple steamed vegetables are one of the reasons I love eating in Japan. I mean, let's be honest, I probably like steamed vegetables more than most, but I enjoy them exponentially more in Japan. Somehow, many of the things I love about traveling there are summed up in this simple preparation. I'd often receive a sampling of seasonal produce as part of a combination lunch, the vegetables arrivi
I have been a habitual drinker of diet pop (or soda, for everyone not from Pittsburgh) for a long, long time; probably since high school. I’m that person who will go through a drive-thru just to get a Diet Coke. I have never been a coffee drinker, so my Diet Coke fixes have long been [...]

In Uruguay, Chile and Argentina I ate a lot of dulce de leche, the delicious caramelized milk that you find in almost every sweet dish, from the famous alfajores to flans, from cakes to ice creams.This is a variation of my classic vanilla cupcake recipe, and in New Zealand if you cannot get dulce de leche you can use a can of caramel. Some people even make caramelized milk by boiling down a can of

I'm sure I've perused many baked egg recipes before I took notice them. Now I

Chicken salad is so personal- everyone makes their own favorite version.
