Ricotta Cheesecake

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

 

As I said yesterday’s posting, today’s recipe is cake!

My dinner buddy wanted to try lighter version of cheesecake, so let’s use ricotta cheese!

The taste of cookie like crust and creamy but light cheese filling combination was one of the best in this year! Christmas is almost there, so please put this ricotta cheesecake as to-cook-for-christmas list?  😛

Cranberry Jam

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

 

Cranberries.

 

I’ve spent more than 10 years in the US, but trying fresh cranberries had never happened before 2017 although cranberry apple juice was one of my favorite juice. So, when I found fresh cranberry before thanksgiving week, I was so excited. Fresh cranberries seems seasonal and  limited time fruits, so I grabbed 2 bags of them because it was 2 bags for $5 (what a bargain!)

 

And that night, I tried it just like fresh blueberries: pop in my mouth, and spit it out right after I crash them on my mouth because it was super sour. While texture is very similar to apples, very crisp and fun, the sourness was super strong.

 

Now, I’m afraid wasting food. No it shouldn’t happen again, so I’ve decided to make cranberry jam. It is way tastier than fresh cranberries, so if you have some left from thanksgiving, let’s cook it!

Tahini Dressing

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

 

Frankly speaking, I’m eager to try new food and new recipe around the world, but at the same time, I’m a little bit afraid of ending up just wasting ingredients that I used for the new recipe.

 

One of the perfect ingredients is tahini. I bought it at local market because I wanted to try making hummus. My homemade hummus came out very good and this is the regular recipe today, but except hummus, I have no idea what to make by using it, and what I have on my fridge? Almost fully remained tahini in a big jar (I tried to find small one but it was just one size.)

 

This happens sometime especially I tried recipe from non-Asian cuisine. Since I don’t know a variety of method to use it, this poor little guy will end up being thrown away in worst scenario.

But, I don’t want this to be happen to me, so I mix it with some Asian ingredients and made dressing.

 

Savory and nutty tahini dressing came out just right with leafy salad, so please try if you have tahini on your fridge!

Curry-Flower Curry

Hello there, finally it’s weekend and the lat month of 2017!

 

There are so many diet method, and my neighbor is obsessed for low carb diet. According to the internet,

  • Rice
  • Bread
  • Muffin
  • Noodle

they are enemies to lose our weight. As you may know already, there are so many recipes for zoodle(using noodled-zucchini instead of use real pasta,) and even low carb sushi(use daikon radish pickle instead of rice) are available for those who are on low carb diet.

I’m not so obsessed to be on low carb diet, but I just wanted to try that by using cauliflower: super healthy low calorie veggie.

 

Curry was on my dinner list in this week, so I made it as double curry. I thought it won’t fill my tummy well before I tried, but it was great for both meaning: let satisfy my appetite and tasty!

If you are looking for low carb recipe with thick and rich flavor, you should try this recipe!
