Fresh Figs With Feta Cheese, Pistachio, And Honey


I love fresh figs, especially, the sweet Black Mission variety. The way I like to enjoy them is to pair the figs with salty Bulgarian Feta cheese, some raw pistachio, honey, and served with some wholemeal rusk. This is one of my favorite non-cook and no recipe needed appetizer. You can play around with the ingredients, perhaps, you may want to pair the figs with some goat cheese and walnut instead, or maybe serve with some dry toast, pita chips, or even flatbreads. Try it.

  2. Great recipe!
    However I 'd like to point that Feta is protected by European Commission Law, through Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) legislation. This means that the European Commission has decided that only feta cheese made in Greece can now be referred to as Feta.

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.
