Textured soy chunks or soy protein are perfect meat substitutes… Soy chunks or textured soy proteins are not new to me. I’ve tried cooking with it a few years ago, but the taste of it didn’t excite me that much. I think I made a vegetarian curry or something with that. After that I didn’t care nor make an attempt to try something new with...

A bowl of this chowder on a freezing winter night and you get the cozy feeling… Yes, you can call me a soup addict.

A very simple and humble dish… Last weekend I had been following quite an unhealthy diet so to compensate that I wrapped up the weekend with a healthy sea food dinner.

Finally, I started loving brussel sprouts… I can now confidentially say that I love all kinds of veggies. Until last week I had an exception, Brussel sprouts.

One of my favorite ways of making Salmon… It’s Monday, I am chiling at home and looking forward to having dinner with friends. For this holiday, I’ve decided to go light on cooking.

Mildly flavored yet a remarkable dish… Before I start cooking, I always peek into my refrigerator and pantry, most of the times I go with the ingredients available at that time and try to season it, combine it and cook it.

Am I falling more for ground beef lately??? Well, my husband gets very happy when I make something out of ground beef. I think I’ve already mentioned that if he enters the kitchen then it’s guaranteed that he will come out with meat loaf or some ground beef dishes. A few days ago, I felt way too much love for him and so decided to make a ground beef...

Finally, I made the best tasting salmon totally my way… One fish that I cannot handle much is salmon, on the other hand my husband loves it a lot. In fact, most North Americans love this fish and is a popular fish in American/European cuisine. I’ve had salmon at many restaurants, none of them seemed to impress my taste buds. For me, when it comes to...
