Foodie Mondays: French Macaron Recipe!

I finally decided to share the macaron recipe I use because I have struggled a lot with it but I found the perfect one that will never go wrong (unless you do something drastically abnormal with the recipe). Before I start, I want to make sure you know the type of macaron I’m talking about; It’s the almond flour based macaron and not the coconut shaving one. The coconut shaving one is pronounced just like it’s written: macaroon, this one is a french macaron; there’s no ooooo at the end.

Foodie Mondays: Fooducate Yourself

It is of no surprise that I absolutely love food. Yes, you eat to live not live to eat but come on, you have to enjoy what you eat. My way of enjoying food is knowing a lot about the food and the ingredients first. Other than knowing if the food ingredients were canned and cooked in a weird suspicious fishy manner or not, I like finding out more about the recipes I’m about to try out. I feel that that is a way to get to know cultures. You’d be surprised at the amount of similarities you’ll find between cultures just from cooking.

Foodie Mondays: Cooking Octopus

Hey everyone! Recently I’ve been really getting into octopus; cooked in all sorts of ways. I’ve had some Mira octopus with sushi, grilled octopus at an Italian place and octopus ceviche on an island. I’m not really claiming that I am the octopus master but since yesterday my husband and I decided to cook it at home I thought I would give you a little heads up on a few things.
