Divine, Delectable, Delicious… Sweet Potato & Coconut Soup

Sweet Potato & Coconut Soup

As I promised in my previous post, here is the recipe for the Sweet Potato & Coconut Soup. It is from the book 200 veggies feasts. Sweet potato and/or butternut squash soups are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do!!



Frozen Weekend

NYC Train Ride - View of the Docks

Due to the extremely cold weather over the past weekend, my ideal notion of spending Saturday in the city was quickly shattered. Since I knew we could only handle 10 minute intervals outside, we chose to arrive later (closer to show time). I always get excited going to New York because that means I get to take the train – but specifically, the train into Grand Central. Sorry Penn Station, but you will never be any real competition to Grand.


Valentine’s Day Plans/Ideas

Valentine's Day Gifts

With the weekend of love fast approaching, I wanted to throw out a little something as to what I am doing this weekend (gifts & activities).


Divine, Delectable, Delicious… Medi-Vibe Salad


Over the past week, I have been in a serious writing rut. It didn’t help that is was cold, and that my camera had to go to the diagnostician! My poor little guy…but don’t worry. He’s back and doing better than ever! Special thanks to the people at Canon. From the tweets to the emails, I had a fantastic customer service experience.

Since I am now back in the game, I just needed to post something. So why not food? And why not what I ate for dinner? Simple enough! Ever since I was a little girl, I always enjoyed eating healthy and adventurously. My parents were very grateful. Fast forward to now, my habits really have not changed. I love my vegetables and would eat them over fast food any day!


Divine, Delectable, Delicious… Banana Bread

If you’re on the East Coast, chances are you were hit by Mr. Jonas himself. There was no chance I would venture outside today, so I made a list of tasks I wanted to get done. At the top of the list: taking down the Christmas tree and making banana bread. (And yes…my tree was still up as of 8am this morning. And yes..I already miss having the lights warm the room).


Divine, Delectable, Delicious… Christmas Cookies 2015

Typically Christmas time is like…well Christmas for me! I love to bake. So, the holidays give me the excuse to make multiple goodies and not have to eat them all myself. This year, I wasn’t able to take Christmas Eve off and with work being increasingly busy, it resulted in doing all my baking on the 23rd. I was up until 3:30am and only got a mere 2 1/2hrs of sleep…it was not the best night.

Originally, I was just going to bake Black Sesame Chocolate Chip Cookies, but then I stupidly added on Sugar Cookies. The logic for the sugar cookies was actually simple: I have so many holiday cookie cutters, and there is only one time of the year to use them. Surprisingly, the start of the process was easy, and I felt very confident. It was not until the reality of icing the sugar cookies was shoved in my face that I realized my decision might not have been the best. I like to do “as proper” sugar cookies as possible – which entails making multiple batches of icing – piping, flooding and details. The ENTIRE process takes time…which was not in abundance. Needless to say, the results were not everything I hoped for…but more on that later.  (more…)
