  1. Hello! I am new to Following your blog but couldn't stop reading all the delicious recipes! The one that of course caught my Eye was the Beer with Chirozo sausage with Steamers. This recipe looked so good and different from any I had heard of, winning the book would be amazing!

  2. hey there. congrats on eight months. love your tweets. have yet to see a recipe that i have not loved!

  3. Congrats on reaching the 8 month milestone. I really enjoy your blog and have made a couple of the recipes for my family. I think the next one will be the "Beer w/ Chorizo & Clams" as it contains 3 of my husband's favorite foods.

    Ricardo: I think your "Fried Eggs with Tomatoes", is the most colorful and easiest to prepare, of all your recipes. I'd love a copy of your book so I could try to make them all. And I do mean try because no one can probably make these recipes like you do.

    Kind regards,

    Jeff B.

  5. Anything with beer and chorizo gets my vote! Congrats for sharing 8 months with us! Great site

  14. When Ricardo first aired on the Food network, I was sure, he wasn't going to be someone I would watch on a regular basis. Boy, was I wrong! His cooking blew many of the other celeb chefs out of the game. His cooking ROCKS!I too would like to prepare meals like Ricardo.

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.


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.
