Dungeness Crab Sandwich


I picked-up some freshly cooked Dungeness crabs recently. I thought maybe I'd make some nice crab sandwiches for lunch that same day and perhaps, turn the balance into some crab pasta the next day. Did just that! Fresh asparagus, pea shoots, cherry tomatoes, with the freshly baked baguettes made this a really yummy sandwich! By the way, I did not make the baguettes from scratch. I usually buy part baked baguettes and complete the baking process at home. So, do try the recipe and I hope you will like it too.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
