My Daiquiri

This is a daiquiri worth drinking…

Even though I stumbled upon a bad bag (bright green and pretty, but dry batch) of limes, I was able to make a very tasty daiquiri with those limes. I nuked each one of my dry (but still fresh looking) limes for […]

Fried Egg And Vegetable Biryani

Hand Cut Noodles In Spicy Sauce

Five minutes here, a few minutes there…

It’s surprisingly easy to make your own noodles. Less than 5 minutes to knead the dough, a brief rest, then cut your dough into strips or shape the dough into the noodle of your choice. No effort is required to let […]

Honey Syrup

Honey syrup…

It’s not just for cocktails. You could use this to sweeten tea. Drizzle it over a buttered biscuit or bowl of oatmeal. I like it over a small bowl of yogurt topped with granola clusters and nuts. And, I’ll be testing it out in several recipes […]
