About me

Pumpkin Flan

Prepare a pumpkin flan for Thanksgiving. Use one can of pumpkin puré and the usual ingredients to make flan. It is a gluten free dessert that I made for a friend who can’t eat pumpkin pie. 

Making the caramel is not an easy step if this is your first time. You will place the melted sugar on the bottom of a glass baking dish 9.5 inches x 1.6 inches (24cm x 4cm). I use a non-stick pot to melt the sugar. This step took me several times to get it right when I was learning. Now it’s super easy to do. If you are a beginner, check some online videos on how to melt sugar.  Read more…


 

Black Bean Dip with Tahini

This is a fabulous creamy black bean dip for a party! 

[Disclosure: Sesame King sent me samples of the tahini paste. But I was not paid for this recipe, I just used the product. Opinions are always mine. #sample.]

Start with a can of black beans or with fresh cooked black beans. First add some flavor to the black beans by heating them in a pan with some spices. Chop tomato, garlic cloves, and onions and add to the black beans. Season with salt and black pepper. Add fresh herbs such as cilantro or parsley.  Read more…


 

Gazpacho a shot of antioxidants

This is a healthy and refreshing recipe from Spain. It is fabulous as an appetizer for a party. It is my favorite dish when there is an abundance of tomatoes from the garden at the end of summer. This is my second gazpacho recipe that I have on my site. My first recipe  yields a lot more liquid while this one is thicker and has crunchier tasty bites. Feel free to adapt this gazpacho recipe to your taste.
