Goat Cheese Spread (Dip) with Spinach-Basil Pesto

Goat Cheese Spread (Dip) with Spinach-Basil Pesto

I’ve tried this recipe quite a few times and find this to be one of the simplest and easiest appetizers to put together both as a dip and a spread with some water crackers. From the original site:  I customized this recipe for pesto by playing with the key ingredients. I use fresh basil and spinach leaves in a 1:1 ratio and this sort of avoids the intensity that you would get by just adding basil or replacing it ent…

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

I enjoy adding yogurt into everything I cook. So, in our household its a constant on the list of ‘staples’ on the weekly grocery list. With so many different kinds and brands available its tough at times to select ‘a’ specific kind. I use store bought and make it at home, when I can. Of the store bought ones I like the Greek style the most. Its much creamier and easy to work with. Yogurt with honey and…

Quinoa Chickpea Pilaf

Quinoa Chickpea Pilaf

I’d always wanted to try a recipe using Quinoa, but wasn’t quite sure where to begin. Honestly, it took me a while to even get the pronunciation right. I never tasted or used Quinoa previously but had always read so much about how quick and easy it is to cook. I knew I wanted to start somewhere and decided to experiment cooking to taste it just itself and see if this was something I and my family would enjoy. From th…

Lemon Cream and Saffron Petits Fours

Lemon Cream and Saffron Petits Fours

A little lemony treat with a hint of saffron. From the original site: For the longest time a fruit tart was the ‘only’ tart I ever knew. It took me quite a while to understand what a tart was and more so the difference between a pie and a tart. I am not an ardent fan of pies but, tarts seemed something out of the ordinary. It might have been those beautiful colored fruits or the crumbly crust or just the custard fillin…

Assorted Macarons

Assorted Macarons

More than just treats these are like a bite sized symphony (of flavors) in your mouth. From the original site: Growing up, a ‘macaroon’ was either a chunk of a cookie loaded with coconut or a tough sugary meringue cookie with bits of cashew nuts and almonds. Either ways it was always a ‘cookie’.Well, all that changed when I was introduced to the world of French Macarons by a friend.

Roasted Hatch Chile Salsa

Roasted Hatch Chile Salsa

Gluten Free, Vegan, Soy Free salsa thats perfect any time of the day with warm chips. From the original site: Each August I try to buy at least one batch each of the mild and hot varieties and never give up a chance to buy and freeze them anytime I see them. Just like my fellow Hatch Chile enthusiasts, a trip to the local Central Market for their Hatch Chile Festival has now become a summer ‘tradition’- yes, that’s…

About Sihi

About Sihi

Hi! I’m Sihi. I am dreamer and love food, photography and food photography. I am a complete amateur when it comes to both food and photography. I am learning , and, each day has gone by learning something new, thus far. I am not a traditional cook and can barely stay focused through a recipe. I use recipes to understand the basic technique and adapt it in a way I feel my family and friends will enjoy. In August 2012…

Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts (Vegan & Gluten Free!)

Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts (Vegan & Gluten Free!)

I was quite curious when a friend treated me to some gluten free vegan brownies. I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to question and re-confirm it they were truly vegan and…..strictly gluten free? What I was eating was too good to be vegan and gluten free. At least, that’s what my brain kept telling me. To me a (real) brownie contains flour and eggs. Since we adapted a predominantly vegan diet and I further took…

Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free - Chocolate & Nut Butter Fudge (no bake)

Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free – Chocolate & Nut Butter Fudge (no bake)

I love chocolate fudge and what better for my “Chocolate” theme for the first 5 posts (Out of the 20) of “Vegan Month of Food”. I recently tried this recipe and have made this a couple of times after then for some friends. Super easy, super simple and truly delicious. The best part, you don’t have to bake! We like the fudge a bit bitter, so I opted to use just ¾ cup of agave nectar. Previously I tried it out with peanu…
