So little No time to cook. So much less time to blog. Sigh. Oh well, there are still many links saved to share with you. I can at least think about food and cooking.
- Chai. Oh my. What a wonderful drink. Join For the Cook in Me as she stirs up her favourite masala chai.
- Or have a cup of Kuwaiti Tea with My Food Blog. Or some cardamom scented Hot White Chocolate from Delhi Belle. Oh my goodness. How very awesome.
- Then read about Pink Peppercorns from My Food Blog again. No, they are not a pink fashion item – they are real peppers. Well, not real peppers. You better read the post to find out what the are.
- Made your own butter recently? No? The Yum Blog explains that it is quite easy, really, to make it from the cream on boiled milk.
- A Gourmet Love Affair plays around in the dairy, producing butter and buttermilk. She ends with a wonderful creamy pasta dish.
- Nourish Me has a spicy Moroccan butter, full of deliciousness, that you can make with home made or shop bought butter.
- For a change, make fresh lime-ade. Whisk has the instructions. Then compare it with a Ginger-Mint Lemonade, from Appetite for China. Or make a Lemon Herb Spritzer with Cooking the Hard Way.
- Coffee and Vanilla illuminate us about Tamarind, that sour-sweet seedpod that is used throughout SE Asia and India.
- Carrot-Miso Tsukemono is a salty-sweet Japanese carrot side dish with miso dressing. From Tess’ Japanese Kitchen.
- Jennie from Straight from the Farm mentioned crysanthemum leaves recently. They are used across SE Asia in stir fries and hot pot dishes. They go by various names. Read about Tong-Ho from Cherry Farms, Tan-O from Chowhound and Tang-Oh from Malaysia Best.
- For those in Summery parts of the world, a bean and avocado salad with a wonderful vinaigrette, from Lucullian Delights.
- Or try 101 Cookbooks‘ Green Pea Dumplings. They look amazing. Or maybe Siri’s Corner Spinach Pastries (Fatayer Bisabanikh Sambosic).
- Passionate about Baking has a WONDERFUL coriander (cilantro) and mint fresh chutney. YUM.
- You like Indian sweets too? Try this orange, milk and saffron dessert. Orange Basundi from My Passion for Cooking.
- Tapioca Cream with Star Anise and Candied Ginger. Need I say any more? Lucullian Delights.
- For a sweet-spicy hit (my favourite) try eating strawberries with black pepper. Delicious. Sugarhead suggests Apricots with Black Pepper.
