    HCB #53: fried rice loving!

    I loves me some celery and adore sweet peppers, and sometimes I love them with my rice. So I put 2 and 2 together… or 3 and 3… Whatever, I was feenin’ for some fried rice, so I did the damn thing!

    You know I had to have some craisins in there!

    Why is fried rice so damn good?!
    Happy cooking lovelies!
    peace and love

    HCB #51: put that carrot in my coconut…

    There are many great things that I learned during my time in chef school, and one of the many things that I learned and keep so close to my heart, is the art of making A DAMN GOOD SOUP. For some this doesn’t sound like anything special, but believe me when I tell you that there is an art to making a GOOD soup.

    I cooked the carrots in soy and coconut milk, along with some garlic, onion and other special ingredients, then brought them together…
    I used to HATE soup, and dreaded ANY and EVERY occasion that involved soup… until I went to chef school. 
    Anyway, this soup was the BOMB! It was like Christmas in Heaven… only in your mouth! Yes.

    peace and blessings

    HCB #50: keep it in check!

    Tis the season of those weird cravings… you know, the ones you get once the weather starts getting a little colder, and your appetite get’s a lil uh… CRAZY… I know you know what I’m talking about.

    some like it naked…

    Anyway for those of us that find ourselves wanting to indulge a lil more during the cold months, BUT are determined to keep the health and shape in CHECK during the cold season; might I suggest we reach for more delicious and nutritious options, versus “delicious” i-will-fatten-you-up options that just leave you so damn disappointed that you gave in. I’m just saying.

    but a lil balsamic dressing ain’t never hurt nobody… mmm this was GOOD!!

    I know a lot of people only associate having an appetizer when they’re dining out, but I find having a yummy salad before my meal usually fills me up, thus preventing me from um… over indulging… *eeek!*
    Happy Cooking Lovelies and have a lovely weekend!

    HCB #49: Tomato… Tom-ah-to

    I know it’s been a HOT minute since I gave you guys some food posts but I’ll be honest, I haven’t been eating anything all that exciting. Bagels, bagels and more bagels, and the occasional veggie samosa. I know, sooo BAD. Whatever. Between school and piecing together this very interesting puzzle called life; I haven’t had any time to cook…

    the flavors were starting to get friendly…
    time to bring it all together…

    HOWEVER,  last night I brought a couple veggies together and made a DELICIOUS and NUTRITIOUS vegan friendly tomato pasta sauce, that had me licking my lips, chin AND bowl after I was done. Mmm t’was GOOD.

    mmm deeee-LISH!

    Happy cooking lovelies.
    peace and love

    ps: I know it’s kinda late, but I hope you all had an awesome thanksgiving Canada!

    HCB #9: When I’m too lazy to cook…

    This is what happens when I’m too lazy to cook. A packet of noodles, some shrimp, veggies, abracadabra *tosses ingredients around*

    et voila!

    It was really yummy, and really filling; the veggies definitely did the trick… the shrimp didn’t hurt either lol.
    This meal is perfect for days when you want something tasty, but don’t have the energy to do the whole cooking thing;  it didn’t take me more than 6 minutes to make this…
    stay blessed,
    ♥Bella♥
