Baked Cauliflower & Broccoli Falafel

Photo shown with a spoonful of lemon-yogurt sauce.

I’ll be honest. I’m not up for writing today. A bit stressed out. But out of all the things, one of the hardest things I’ve gone through is I crave for some food and can’t share how great it is with Mad Scientist because he has different food allergies than I do. Taking a photo of a dish and trying to explain the taste is one thing. It’s a good conversation topic. Experiencing “it” is completely another story. So do I think this is a problem or struggle? No, the world won’t fall apart because of that. I like the challenges, the processes, and the opportunities. I just need a bit of time and creativity so that we can both enjoy. Sharing is caring, they say.

Deviled Potato with Egg Yolk Filling

There are parts of the world that avoid the word “devil” for a variety of reasons. It also has a long history, many not known much. Whether it’s called stuffed eggs or deviled eggs, it conceptually is the same appetizer we know of; a dollop of creamy egg yolk mixture stuffed in a hard-boiled egg white cup.

Apple Bourbon Cream Cheese Wontons

These wontons can be baked or fried. They make awesome finger desserts at occasions like… Easter.

I was going through old photos on my computer and came across the folder called “food.” Honestly, I’ve forgotten about this folder ever existed. I half-heartedly clicked to open and there were quite a few photos of dishes I tried before. Some of them, I don’t even remember what the dishes were for. While I was on the memory lane, something on the red plate caught my eye. It was apple wontons.
