Why I hate Häagen Dazs

Vanilla Caramel Brownie

A perfect blend of Vanilla and caramel with chewy bits of brownies...yumminess! So why I do I hate Häagen Dazs? They have the best ice cream that I crave for, it ruins my diet! ;-) Oh, and they only have a pint for servings...

chow mein


Ok this is bad, I forgot how I cooked this Chow Mein (lol). Just when I have been trying to put the exact ingredients (by the book) so this page gets better, I forgot--- woot! So forget the recipe.

I anyway, requested this page to be included in the Great cooks blogroll--Thanks to Jill for approving my request.

What's so good about the group, well I get to see great food blogs and an awesome community, as it was said GREAT COOKS COMMUNITY is like a Facebook for food lovers ONLY! Great yet simple recipes and wonderful food photos! I'd surely enjoy this group!

Salmon delight

salmon pastamia


Another Salmon recipe, just can't get enough of them.

Perhaps the most recipes that I have posted are those of Salmon and Shrimp, my two most favorite seafoods. This recipe is so simple, in preparing and cooking and to how it tastes.

I have posted lots of pasta recipes and everytime I have always used spaghetti, but this one goes well too with farfalle and macaroni.



Ingredients:

2 tbsps Olive oil
Salmon filet
2 tomatoes, cubed
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp chopped parsley
pasta, water, salt, pepper


1. Cook preferred pasta per package directions.

2. In a saucepan, heat olive oil. Add garlic, put in the salmon fillets before the garlic turns brown. Cook Salmon over low heat, stir using a wooden spoon to avoid the fillets from breaking into pieces.


3. Add tomatoes and parsley, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Add a little water to add moisture then pour over pasta. Serve hot!

Toblerone Fruit and Nut

toblerone


I have always loved toblerone, its one of those treats that I like eating on longer in the day by having them just bit by bit. So I was really excited to see the newest bar from them...that with fruit and nuts.

It's not the first though, I have always enjoyed Cadbury's (everything about Cadbury's too) and Van Houten's or Nestle Chunky bars. When I came to Vienna, I was disappointed that Cadbury's, Nestle Crunch, Hershey's kisses, M&M Crispies and a lot more chocolates are not sold here. Not even ChipsAhoy or Oreo (what?). Yes, you might say its boring, but then they are actually available at the United Nation's Comissary which is unfortunately, accessible only to U.N. employees and their families. And since we are just neighbors with Switzerland, there are still lots of good chocolate around, particularly Lindt.

So in 2004, I was ecstatic (not really overreacting but I was really ecstatic) when I saw Cadbury chocolates being sold for the first time at Merkur. And that was the only grocery store that sells them.

Anyway, back to toblerone, I saw the toblerone fruit and nut and bought one for taste-test. According to other blogs it has been around since July 2007 but I saw them just yesterday at a nearby store.

Ok, considering the triangle-shape of the chocolate, there isn't much room given for the 'raisins.' I have tasted a few bits but only on the bottom part. Comparing to how it is with Cadbury...well, I'd say Cadbury has 9 out of 10 for being ok but Toblerone would only score 6. The add-ons do not blend well with the rich -chewy taste of toblerone, my tongue kept searching for the nougats instead.

How about you? What's the latest chocolate you've tried?
