Watermelon Limeade


Hello there, just in case you are wondering what had happened to Seasaltwithfood or yours truly? Well, I am pleased to report that I am very well and still on my long summer holidays. Anyway, I would like to apologize to all my readers for not updating my blog as frequent as I should have over the last few weeks, and also, for not being able to participate in many of the recipe contest invites. It would have been great to participate in some of them; but unfortunately, it’s just not possible at the moment. Thanks for all the invites and I can’t wait to find out who are the talented winners!

So, here is an easy peasy Watermelon Limeade recipe to quench your thirst throughout this sweltering summer. Only 7 ingredients needed, namely, frozen watermelon, freshly squeezed lime juice, sugar, water, cold soda water, mint leaves, and a good pinch of sea salt. There you have it! Enjoy: D

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.
