Hi guys! I know it has been awhile since my last post, but a lot of things was going on with my life, so I didn’t have a lot of time in hands to come up with new contents for my blog. In fact, I had to focus on work, on family and most importantly on my health. As a matter of fact, I underwent a jaw surgery just few months ago, so I wasn’t really in the best condition to write or do anything demanding energy or concentration.
Since tonight it’s Super Bowl, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite recipes for game nights. It’s always comforting to watch big sports events such as the Olympics, the World Cup and of course Super bowl while savouring junk food. But why wasting money ordering junk food when you can make it yourself while controlling the amount of calories you put in there. That’s why this year, instead of ordering pizza or buying already made snacks, I chose to make my own Super bowl snacks for my family and friends.
Sorry for having been missing in action in August but I was extremely busy and I didn’t have enough time in my agenda to blog. However, in September, I will try to do my best to supply my blog with more recipes and reviews.
Whenever I go grocery shopping, I always return home with rotisserie chicken because I’m usually too exhausted to cook after an hour spent at the store wandering from alley to alley. In addition of acting as a troubleshooting option when you are too tired to cook a meal, rotisserie chicken can be added in almost every recipe. Whether it’s in salads, quiches, pizzas or pasta, rotisserie chicken can’t go wasted.
Whenever you want to eat light, I will advise you to try to make poached chicken for lunch or dinner. Poached chicken can be used in various recipes from salads to sandwiches. And it’s easy to store until the moment you are ready to use them.
Palm cream or palm pulp is a staple ingredient in the African cuisine, especially in West and Central Africa. The cream or pulp is extracted from oil palm fruit. The palm fruit is harvested then boiled to be later pressed to collect the reddish-orange cream. In most African households, people are still making their palm pulp themselves using fresh palm fruits. However, thanks to industrialization, it’s now possible to buy palm cream or palm pulp in a can. And it’s an easy alternative for people living in Western countries, like myself. Canned Palm pulp can be found in most Exotic markets and Asian markets (since Malaysia is the world largest producer of palm oil).
