Tip of the Week : How to Use Garlic from Kevin Ashton

In one of my previous posts, garlic was listed among the "sexy spices". That's why it's a pleasure to share this Tip of the Week: How to Use Garlic by Kevin Ashton, who recently started following my foodie business page on Google Plus. He does business under the name "wannabetvchef" and publishes several food and food-related blogs.  His post is very informative.  

Do you know know how black garlic is made?

Kid Size Cooking: Rainbow Checkerboard Cake (YouTube Video Share)

Another wonderful discovery found by accident. I heart rainbows. I heart desserts. Have had an affiliate marketing website since 2011. When Google Plus invited me to join the G+ social / professional network, part of the membership includes being able to create a business page to link to your official website. Used to be called “page”. Now it's called “brand”. Either way, setting up a business page or establishing a brand account is kind of like passing out an electronic business card for your website, only better!
 


 

Long story short. Back in 2011, a blogger on G+ started following my Everyday Exotic Spices page. On her timeline, she had shared a recipe for a rainbow cake. However, clicking the link led me to page stating that the blog had been discontinued. Thought to myself 'Perhaps there's a new blog somewhere else and the recipe has been published there.' So typed an appropriate phrase into the search box and VOILA! Never found the original blogger's recipe but this video with kids in the kitchen is just as good!! Awesome!!

This YouTube channel has close to 4 million subscribers! Impressive huh? Might as well join the fun. Clicked the subscriber's button, gave it a Thumbs Up, and decided to share the video via this blog.

Are You Qualified to Make Good Soup?

Want to read a food quote? 

“Only the pure in heart can
make a good soup.” 

Guess who said that? 
- No it wasn't Jesus Christ. 
- No it wasn't Jacques Pepin. 

Beethoven! Yeah, the famous classical music composer, Ludwig van Beethoven said that! 

So not only was he a genius when it came to composing music, he was also smart when it came to knowing about comfort food. 



January is National Soup Month and in other months of the year we celebrate days for various types of soups and chowders. Yes it's September. But why wait until the winter months when you can start enjoying warm comforting soups in the fall?

Asian Salmon Recipe | Tasty Yum (Reblog)

Which is better for you? Salmon or Trout?
Let's discuss! 


Or … 

Skip the discussion and make an arbitrary decision based on you palate's preferences. No matter because the salmon recipes links supplied via this blog post can probably be modified and trout can be used as a substitute. When experimenting, eating and enjoying food, one must learn to be flexible.  :)

July 30th is National Cheesecake Day in the USA

Who Cares Who Invented Cheesecake? I do!

Because I want to thank whoever it was that made this lusciously exquisite dessert possible for human consumption!! :)
According to Cheesecake.com, "The first "cheese cake" may have been created on the Greek island of Samos. Physical anthropologists excavated cheese molds there which were dated circa 2,000 B.C." I would just like to modify/paraphrase a quote borrowed from a memorable character as stated in a famous Charles Dickens' novel: "God bless them, each and every one!" :)
I very much agree with , the lady who shared this recipe via Google Plus. Skip dinner! Go straight to the dessert! Many thanks to her also! :)

Memories are Blessings

"Count your Blessings" is a familiar Christian hymn that encourages people not to focus on the negatives and count all the Things they can be thankful for; all the good things in life they've been blessed to experience. Try it.




(Image:  The Torch of Friendship at Bayside Park, Miami, Florida)

Growing up in Miami , Florida, there was good eating all around me. My main sources for everyday meals was: my mother's cooking, church dinners prepared by faithful sisters, and a a sweet little old gray-haired lady who owned and operated a restaurant around the corner from my house called "Mom's Cafe". I never knew her name because everybody called her "mom". Those women really knew how to serve up the love! Huge plates of pigeon peas and rice, potato salad, collard greens, black eye peas, fried chicken; sweet potato pie for dessert.


As I grew into a teenager and young adult, started working part-time while pursuing my education; had a little pocket change so occasionally I could go out to eat. Downtown Miami and particularly Calle Ocho (8th Street), there were spots where you could chow down on delicious Cuban food: sweet fried plantains, black beans and rice, vaca frita, or a toasty Cuban sandwich. Kosher food delicatessens and restaurants run by the Jews on Miami Beach were the best! The soups, sandwiches, and desserts were outrageous! That was just lunch! Of course, no major city is complete if you can't find good Chinese food. Miami is a major city with places that have award-winning Chinese cuisine.


Getting close now to my threescore an ten (70 years, the average life expectancy). When I count my blessing over the years, the list has grown and grown and grown. There are a lot of add-ons. But the list always includes that one great memory from my childhood. Good food!
