Platter of Cookies on Persian New Year

  A platter of cookies on Persian New Year’s Day. Last March 21st  was the New Year celebration of our Landlord who is originally from Persia. I thought only Chinese New Year celebrated in different date but to my surprised, also Persian. I have realized that when our generous landlady handed a platter of assorted lovely cookies. When I landed to the beautiful land of BC, diversity of people begun embracing me as part of the Canadian society....

Personal Review: Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit

I seldom make biscuit at home from scratch. I only buy the one in can when I feel like baking and eating biscuits. Honestly saying, I am not just a huge fan of eating such kind, but since we have kids so the mother must explore everything till the tip of the rainbow. Last week, my husband had a cross-border grocery shopping in the States and he happened to drop by at the Red Lobster Restaurants in Seattle....

And me as an ordinary kitchen tweaker, adventurer, invisionist, I’d like to venture one day the...

Baked Ziti with Shrimp and Mushrooms

Would you like to eat Baked Ziti with Shrimp and Mushrooms? I seldom prepare pasta in the house. It’s a meal selection only if there’s no other option or a sudden change of mood from the green environment. Speaking of green, I am happy that my children are now starting eating green. Anyways, I prepared this bake Ziti with shrimp and mushroom for our dinner last night. I almost jumped for joy when I knew that it became...

The Usual Chicken Empanada

Empanada reminds me when I often went to Avon Lapu-Lapu branch to get my order. There was an employee there who sells empanada and I got tempted to try it since many also were buying.On my first taste I started liking it until I turned into a regular empanada buyer.   Now that I settled down, started venturing the kitchen, I consider myself a recipe modifier. Through trial and error, I learn and become familiar the moves in...
