TumblrEmailOther Share Options

The following is hardly a recipe—it’s so easy to throw together. This would actually be more of a winter salad in California, since oranges are in season in January, so I’m cheating on the seasonal thing a bit here…But it’s certainly tasty on a warm summer evening. Ingredients: 2 medium navel oranges 2 large, ripe […]

Fig Jam

Fig Jam

by Bill Disselhorst Fiore Market Cafe I didn’t know much about figs until Anne and I started to go to Italy. There I had a couple of very big fig moments. We had a neighbor who lived directly across from the apartment we stayed in. She used to sit on a plastic lawn chair right […]

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Giant tubs of tri-flavored popcorn: I always avoided the cheese (even though I liked it) and the butter flavor and dove right into the caramel section. I was addicted. Still am. I had to leave this batch in another room to avoid finishing it all. This is my version of that delicious caramel popcorn, but […]

Nesian Quinoa Bowl

I blame a lot of things on my Polynesian roots, and one of them is my undying love of eating. This is a blessing and a curse. I swear, a Sunday in my home in Suva was filled with an hour of church service followed by ten hours of constant grazing. And we never had […]

Avocado Toast with Aspargus Slaw & Spicy Lemon Dressing

Avocado Toast with Aspargus Slaw & Spicy Lemon Dressing

Growing up, my mother served us avocado on toast with Italian dressing as a breakfast side or snack. This was a favorite of mine, especially when the avocados came from my Aunt Lydia’s tree across town. So to see this childhood love become an actual restaurant trend is pretty cool (though you will pay $12 […]

Limoncello

An homage to the Sicilian sun. Smooth and bright with zesty lemony notes. Limoncello is an excellent edible gift for cocktail lovers or anyone who wants a quick flavor trip to Sicily. Limoncello brings forth the elements of sun and land into a sweet after dinner liquor to top a great meal. It can be […]

Oatmeal Pancakes with Bananas Foster Compote

Oatmeal Pancakes with Bananas Foster Compote

This recipe was created out of a strong desire for pancakes, the fact that it was brunch on Sunday, and there was no syrup to be found. And, I must say, it turned out pretty darn delicious. The pancakes solo are great but the combination of the sweet soft bananas are excellent! Add this one […]
