Linguine With Crab


Well, here it is, the crab pasta that I had planned to make with the balance of the Dungeness crab meat which I had picked up earlier. It’s just a simple and yet delicious Linguine with Crab. I always cook the pasta only when everyone is ready to dine, so that the pasta will not go cold and dry out.

  7. Beautiful and delicious! I tried it myself, and the only thing I'd love to know is: where did you get such beautiful crab meat? Short of steaming fresh crab, the canned stuff I found at Whole Foods tasted fine, but didn't look nearly as nice as yours.

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.
