One of the recipe projects I am currently in love with is homemade fruit leather. It’s so easy to make, it tastes great, it’s a very easy way to use up a lot of fruit, it’s cheaper than buying fruit leather, and it makes nice gifts too.
Persimmons are currently in season and my mom has a giant persimmon tree that always produces more fruit than we can consume. We usually make dried persimmon slices, but this year I thought I’d try making fruit leather. More Here...
Cupcakes, in all its variations, are definitely the craze in desserts nowadays, but what about the cream puff? Beard Papa's, which is currently located in 8 states and 5 countries outside of America, are known for their "fresh'n natural cream puffs." Needless to say, they are definitely worth some praise!
It's been a while since I've last blogged for IReallyLikeFood and it feels great. This semester I took Baking & Pastry Arts 1 and it was intensive, tiring, stressful, exciting, and educational.

Three ingredients and about five minutes of your time. That’s all you need for this dessert.
Sometimes inspiration comes at odd moments. DH and I were driving home from dinner and my mind wandered off and suddenly this thought of making a super easy Nutella pudding just appeared in my head. Lucky for me, we had one last ripe avocado sitting at home. Technically it was DH’s avocado, but now that we’re married, his stuff is my stuff right?
As soon as we got home, I made a beeline for the kitchen to try out my newest idea. And success!
Mushrooms are nutritional powerhouses packed with vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting antioxidants.
Ever since I made this clear mushroom soup, I wanted to make it again. Better still, make it a regular regime.
But fresh shiitake mushrooms are not cheap in the US. Imported fresh shiitake mushrooms are much cheaper but I try to avoid those as who knows what has happened in the "mushroom journey". I enjoy many varieties of mushrooms, do you?
To this soup, I have added fresh shiitake mushrooms and two other varieties to boost the "mushroom effect". More Here...
I made this last year for the first time, but it’s a recipe worth sharing again. The winter weather and tree decorating has put me in a permanent hot chocolate mood. Out of all the hot chocolate beverages, my favorite is this Nutella one. More Here...
