Hello, I'm Stef, I really really enjoy concocting new meals or even amping up stuff I've already made. I started cooking and baking with my Grandma at a very young age and found it to be my passion through the years, collecting more along the way, stashing my recipes in a black box where no one can see them. So I have decided to start sharing what I make since a lot of friends and family say I can really cook or bake!
I was experimenting today with a few of the many essential oils I have. Not only have I created a new favourite recipe for chai tea, but I have also found a method that is easy for me being a busy working woman. Chai with freshly ground spices is absolutely the best but when in a pinch we have to resort to something a little less time consuming. I’ve tried chai flavoured tea, liquid chai mix, pre packaged chai spices. None of this is nearly as satisfying as having a fresh traditional chai at your local Indian cafe or restaurant, let’s be honest! Well I’m happy to say I’ve found the next best thing! I use doTERRA essential oils because they pride themselves on the purity and quality of their products.
Its 10pm, 24 days and counting till exams, and I'm banging my head against an economics text book. My solution is macarons! I run to the local shop, pick up all necessary ingredients and return home feeling hopeful and ready to create a masterpiece! I first learnt to make macarons in a baking class last summer and haven't been able to recreate them as perfectly since, and I decide tonight is the night. But who would've guessed that cheap scales, loud whisking, and my unhealthy obsession of watching 90210 reruns would be the cause of my downfall.
Would you like to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to eating healthy? Try eating with the seasons! It is easy, fun, fresh, and nutritious.
It's that time of year again when there's a crispness in the air and the leaves are beginning to change. One of the great things about this time of year is that one of my favourites come on sale: apples. You can get so many different varieties now and there are always new ones to try.
As the summer grows late and the trees fill themselves with the last reserves of the deep green chlorophyll of summer, many will hike deep into the mountains of Colorado. They are in search of a hidden treasure that only comes with patience and a little luck. It is the season of mushroom hunting in the mountains.
Crock pots, as anyone who's ever worked long hours can tell you, are an incredible invention. Also known as slow cookers, these simple kitchen instruments allow you to create an amazing meal while you're off at work.
Sorry for the delay, been super busy at work lately, but still trying to get these gains and help people save money and eat good! That's what we're all about at JG... food and helping people.
I asked big daddy, Lauren, if I could try something different from our normal JG reviews for a couple posts. He enthusiastically agreed, because this is a genius idea, and I am a fucking wizard in the kitchen. So here goes nothing, "Cooking with Walker, Pt. 1" and for those who think this is a video thing, eat shit, I ain't got time to be recording all the meals I make. I just wanna cook and eat.
Yesterday was Father's Day.
Unless you're a real professional pitmaster, there's only so much that a poorly crafted barbecue pit can do. Cooking the old fashioned way is difficult and frankly, it often means that you will end up doing twice the work and only get bare-bones results. Even those of us with the most in-depth cook books could only get mediocre results without the best gear.
Lately, I've been seeing cauliflower replace just about anything and everything in order to satisfy some craving... First, there were cauliflower "wings" in place of chicken wings, then it was cauliflower rice, now there's cauliflower pizza crust.
