Are Bugs the Food of the Future??

My dad has always been an interesting and adventurous man. He’s eaten his fair share of strange foods from silk worm pupae to mushed up earthworms. Over the past couple years, he’s become more interested in edible insects and foraging. For his birthday, we decided to surprise him and order some edible insects from Thailand…

Coffee Kombucha Experiment: Part #2 Taste test

It has been two weeks now since I started my first batch of coffee Kombucha.  How does it look like?  Just like Kombucha.  How does it smell?  Like Kombucha with a hint of coffee.  How does it taste?  Uh that’s hard to explain. I was quite surprised to find that after two weeks of brewing…

Flourless Banana Pancakes

How do you make pancakes without flour? That was my first question when I came across this recipe on the internet.  This recipe intrigued me because I imagined pancakes to be fluffy and doughy. Not something I would think eggs and banana would create. To create these pancakes, you need 1 banana and 2 eggs….

Mobius Bagels

“Don’t play with your food” is what went through my mind as I tried to make this mobius bagel. At work we were given instructions to make a bagel into two interlocking loops. It looked easy enough. As I read the recipe, I was getting more and more confused. Where do I have to cut?…

Pickled Avocado! What?!

Want to try a weird recipe?  Well you have to try this one.  When I first found this recipe on Pinterest, I just could not figure out how this would taste.  I love avocados but pickled avocados? What? To me this tastes like pickled egg, but it is probably is just the vinegar. It is…
