Foodie Friday : Tip of the Week : How to Use Garlic from Kevin Ashton

Do you know how black garlic is made?

In one of my previous posts, garlic was listed among the "sexy spices". That's why it's a pleasure to share this Tip of the Week: How to Use Garlic by Kevin Ashton, who recently started following my foodie business page on Google Plus. He does business under the name "wannabetvchef" and publishes several food and food-related blogs.  His post is very informative.

Mexican Favorites - Recipes for Peace?

Published an article about a proposed solution to the "problem" of illegal immigration in the United States via  For the life of me, can't understand why everybody isn't on board with it!  Isn't the temptation of Mexican cuisine a persuasive enough argument?!  THINK "homemade fresh chorizo".  That's worth coming to an agreement, isn't it?

Are You Qualified to Make Good Soup?

Want to read a food quote? 

“Only the pure in heart can
make a good soup.” 

Guess who said that? 
- No it wasn't Jesus Christ. 
- No it wasn't Jacques Pepin. 

Beethoven! Yeah, the famous classical music composer, Ludwig van Beethoven said that! 

So not only was he a genius when it came to composing music, he was also smart when it came to knowing about comfort food. 

January is National Soup Month and in other months of the year, we celebrate days for various types of soups and chowders. Why wait until the winter months when you can start enjoying warm comforting soups in the fall?

Which is better for you? Salmon or Trout?
Let's discuss! 

Or … 

Skip the discussion and make an arbitrary decision based on your palate's preferences. No matter because the salmon recipes links supplied via this blog post can probably be modified and trout can be used as a substitute. When experimenting, eating and enjoying food, one must learn to be flexible.  :)

Sous Vide Cooking Tips |

Credit is being given to the French for Sous Vide (pronounced soo-veed) Cooking, which is a method of preparing foods by vacuum sealing and cooking packed foods in controlled temperature water. 

I've seen Ming Tsai use this technique and he was trained as a chef in France. 

No matter. When it comes to cooking, if the French say we can do it, we can do it! 

Furthermore, according to my thinking, when Ming Tsai says two thumbs up and shows you how to, you've run out of excuses.  Because Mr. Tsai knows the best to cook anything! Hey! I'm a loyal fan! :) 

See on - My I Like Eating Channel
Sous Vide Cooking has become increasingly popular over the years. This is an easy, effective method of cooking that preserve nutrients and deliver on flavor ...

Kid Size Cooking: Rainbow Checkerboard Cake (YouTube Video Share)

Another wonderful foodie discovery found by accident. I heart rainbows. I heart desserts. Have had an affiliate marketing website since 2011. When Google Plus invited me to join the G+ social / professional network, part of the membership includes being able to create a business page to link to your official website. Used to be called “page”. Now it's called “brand”. Either way, setting up a business page or establishing a brand account is kind of like passing out an electronic business card for your website, only better!

Long story short. Back in 2011, a blogger on G+ started following my Everyday Exotic Spices page. On her timeline, she had shared a recipe for a rainbow cake. However, clicking the link led me to page stating that the blog had been discontinued. Thought to myself 'Perhaps there's a new blog somewhere else and the recipe has been published there.' So typed an appropriate phrase into the search box and VOILA! Never found the original blogger's recipe but the YouTube video with kids in the kitchen is just as good!! Awesome!!

This YouTube channel has close to 4 million subscribers! Impressive huh? Might as well join the fun. Clicked the subscriber's button, gave it a Thumbs Up, and decided to share the video via this blog.
