They thought it looked like ceviche, and I have to admit, it did. But thankfully, they were all willing to try a few slices of the apples and truth be told, they were hooked!

Spiced vegetable cakes seem to be a sign of spring. Here is a terrific spice cake with shredded zucchini.

Tallarines Verdes // Peruvian Pesto

Tallarines Verdes // Peruvian Pesto

This is a delicious version of pesto sauce that is traditional here in Peru. I love the flavor and think it is a delicious representation of Peruvian ingredients for a commonly eaten sauce.

Aji de Gallina // Spicy Creamed Chicken

Any visitor to Peru should have this on their list of foods to try – it is truly a signature dish of Peru. This sauce features the Peruvian yellow pepper as it’s star, and rightly so!

Pecan Yogurt Biscuits

Pecan Yogurt Biscuits [TWD]

It is funny how our tastes change over time. I remember years when my roommate and I stocked our refrigerator for everything Mexican. Not a day went by when you could not find salsa, sour cream and shredded cheese. Guacamole was common, but it never lasted long. After years living outside of the US, there […]

The market was bustling when I arrived this morning. Each of the stands is full to almost overflowing with delicious produce, grains and other healthy items. One of the first stand had a large basket of baby Brussels sprouts. I wanted to buy them all! I restrained myself, wanting to take it all in before […]
