Hey- a lot of boba places have been serving strawberry horchata... also, I miss Texas. Let me know if you have other bomb horchata recipes.
How to Modify Recipes: Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Scones
Sometimes I just don't want to add the 4 cups of sugar that a recipe asks for. This is the art of modifying recipes.
Here are some rules you must abide by...
Rule #1: You need to know what you can & cannot substitute.
Vegan Thai Papaya Salad (Som Tam)
I love tangy/sweet taste of Thai Papaya salad. It's so refreshing and summer-y. And it's healthy (minus the brown sugar).
- It costs $9 at Thai restaurants
- Most restaurants use fish sauce and dried shrimp, which gives it a fishy flavor
- Restaurants serve small portions of it
Well - good news. It's VERY easy to make and it's inexpensive. AND 1 papaya makes a shitton of salad, so you can eat to your heart's content.
Quick & Easy Gluten Free Pizza
Ooh, girl, it's something gluten-free that doesn't taste like poo. If you've tried gluten free pastries, they taste yucky.
Let's be honest: when a package has "gluten-free" written on it, it makes me want to walk in the other direction. When I finally find a gluten-free product that isn't super high in sodium & sugar, I'm ecstatic. My Celiac friends can enjoy the pleasure of gooey, bready food!
Venice Bakery's Seasoned pizza crust is has a buttery deliciousness to it - even though it's vegan. They sell it at Sprouts Farmer's Market.
Crab Ceviche Tacos: From Sea to Table
Live crabs freak me out a little bit. The thought of capturing crabs, gutting them, and getting their meat was slightly nauseating to me... until I realized I could make delicious ceviche tacos!
So technically, ceviche is seafood cured with citrus, like lemon juice. The crabs we will be preparing are boiled, but the end result will still have the tangy taste of ceviche.
