Such a delicious, soft and flavorful cookie! Oatmeal, dried pears, pecans and chocolate chips are a delicious match.
Initially, I wanted to make oatmeal, raisin and chocolate chip cookies, but I soon found out that I was out of raisins, instead I had various dried fruit in store, cranberries, mango, ginger, and … pears! Yesss! Suddenly I wanted a pear cookie.
Rubies of Thailand, a deliciously sweet Thai dessert made with water chestnuts and coconut milk.
This dessert is one of the most famous desserts of Thailand. It is called “Rubies of Thailand” because rubies can be found in Thailand and that is why it is generally served in this beautiful red color. Its name in Thai language is Tab Tim Grob or ทับทิมกรอบ.
Fun and very easy to make, this dessert combines different textures: gummy outside, crispy inside, and the coconut milk is velvety sweet. When it is available, I always choose this dessert, it is perfect to end a hot and spicy Thai meal on a sweet note.
Caramelized hazelnuts and almonds meal and butter that can be used three ways: as candies (sooo good!), chopped into a coarse meal or as a paste.
A nut butter can be made of all sorts of nuts, I most commonly make it with hazelnuts or a mix of almonds and hazelnuts. You can also make pistachio meal and paste the same way, very interesting and really delicious.
Chicken and cauliflower salad, a spicy and delicious mixed salad, as well as healthy and low calories!
This is a quickly made salad, comforting and filling, a one bowl dish, very handy for weekday dinners. Here, I made my salad from scratch, but of course you can make it with leftover chicken, or replace chicken by tuna, or you can cook your cauliflower ahead, although cauliflower cooks only about 10 to 12 minutes, which is quite quick.
