These Oven Baked Crab Rangoons are great for appetizers and feeding a whole crowd or a party! And they are baked, so you can have as many as you like!
Last month I attended IFBC ( International Food Bloggers Conference) here in Seattle and I enjoyed every minute of it! You can read more about it and what I learned here, here and here. I made lots of friends and learned a lot. Talking about food, learning about food and thinking about food were basically the main activities of those 3 days and well, my current life. I just can’t stop doing it (don’t want to either). So when I meet people, food is usually the main thing I talk about. It’s better than politics right?
Is it APPLE pie? Is it cinnamon rolls? It’s both! Make one and have two! A great treat for everyone, happiness in every bite!
We all love apple pie. I personally have never seen a single soul telling me she doesn’t like apple pie. It took me time to learn how to make the perfect apple pie. At that time (almost 8-9 years ago), it just wasn’t something very common in Iran. We had our own type of “apple pie” which was more like an apple cake but so soft and fluffy, it was like eating a piece of cloud with some apple in it. I will definitely make that one!
An all time favorite! This Easy No-Fail Ratatouille is a great choice for a healthy meal!
Remember when I told you I have some friends in Seattle and one of them lives in Camano Island? We visited them again some days before we came to east coast. I haven’t told you how Mohammad Reza and I became friends, here is the story:
Wonton Mini Lasagna Cups are what you need for a quick and delicious party appetizer. Fun to make and easy to eat!
As I told you before, some weeks ago it was my mother-in-law’s birthday and I made this caramel cake, which really was the best ever. For dinner we had mushroom soup and these Wonton mini lasagna cups.
If you are looking for mouth-watering cookies that are easy to make and are all time favorite, these HAppy Thumbprint cookies are for you! Need to say more? They make you happy!
I love baking. It really is one of those things that I can do all the time and it still will be my favorite thing to do. My grandma used to bake a lot I vaguely remember. My mom, I do remember perfectly, baked something sweet at least 2-3 times a week and she still does. Our home always had the beautiful smell of cookies and cakes, and my maman and I in the kitchen, taking a bite of a cookie we had made, both nodding our heads, saying “yep, good one” with our eyes and then my maman hugging me and telling me how I was her favorite daughter in the world (Well, I’m the only daughter, haha)
Chocolate Festival? So it’s like a festival where you go around and eat chocolate? Well, yes and no. It really depends why you are there.
Last Sunday I went to the Northwest Chocolate Festival and I had a great time full of chocolate and chocolate-related people. if this was last year or any time before that, this would have been a fun time for me to just walk around and have free samples of chocolate. But this year as a food blogger, things were different. I was paying more attention to the brand, where they get their beans from, is it a bean to bar company, is it fair-trade and many other questions.
Sausage is one of those food items that has the same number of lovers and haters. Some love it for its convenience and diversity, some hate it because It’s not a real part of an animal. For me, it differs depending on where I have it. In Iran and Turkey, I wasn’t a big fan of sausage but in the U.S, I like cooking with it because the spices in sausage give the food a good kick that when I eat it, it’s like there is tiny bit of spice dance in my mouth.
