Summer’s not over. Not yet. I’m not ready for that and in order to celebrate, I decided to revisit an old favorite of mine, a.k.a. my go-to summer breakfast. I last posted a recipe for overnight oats over a year ago (Banana-Mixed Berries anyone?), and while the base recipe basically hasn’t changed, I made three major changes to it, by adding:

  • chia seeds
  • frozen berries
  • quick cooking oats instead of old fashioned

Although these changes might seem minimal, they transformed my morning overnight oats experience. Continue reading “Raspberry Overnight Oats with Chia Seeds”

It’s here. It’s finally here. The perfect banana bread recipe. The ultimate. My one and only.

I’ll stop here. I think you get my point and my somewhat overwhelming excitement… You know how some people just make the best baked goods and have a secret recipe that you spend years trying to recreate but ultimately never can? You know, like for chocolate chip cookies? Or banana bread? I know I’ve been looking for the best banana bread recipe for as long as I can remember (or ever since I came to the US and discovered this delectable treat). Three years later, I’m happy to announce that I finally found it! Continue reading “The Ultimate Banana Bread”

Another day, another toast! With chicken salad, no mayo anyone? This toast recipe is the last one I’ll post for a while, but as I previously mentioned open-faced sandwiches have been my go-to rushed meals recently. And since this chicken salad is so good, I figured that I’d share it with you even if I recently posted another toast recipe (combining Scrambled eggs, broccoli rabe, and shiitake!).

I didn’t know banana bread until I came to the US. Not once had I even heard of it. Crazy, right? So when my roommate first asked me if I wanted a piece of her mom’s world-famous banana bread, I hesitated for a solid second before I decided to give it a try.

Today, I decided to play around with textures! I wanted that to drive my dish and to come up with something that would be fun and original to eat. So I sat down at my desk with pen and paper and something pretty amazing came out of it. Though I usually focus on the mix of flavors in a plate, blending textures can also add great depth to a dish.
