Ambrosia Salad with Marshmallows

Fruit Ambrosia Salad

One of my favourite treats when I was a kid was my Aunt Angela’s ambrosia salad I just loved it, still do till today! She used fruit flavoured marshmallows for this, and that is what I used in this recipe. Hers was made with only sour cream, you can make it only using sour cream as well if you like.  Continue reading “Ambrosia Salad with Marshmallows” »

Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity Pebbles, I haven’t seen them in years, many many years…probably since I was a kid! Of course the box says limited edition, which means they will only be available for a few months or so. I do not normally buy sugary or fruity cereals, unless of course it’s limited edition, and anyone that knows me knows, that I am an impulsive shopper!  Continue reading “Fruity Pebbles Treats” »

The kulfi was my inspiration for this ice cream.

Hummus with Golden Beets

We love our hummus, and I love beets. I thought I should experiment with it and add some to the hummus. It’s so delicious!  You can’t even tell there’s beets in it.  I only had one large golden beet, if you have small ones I guess 2-3 would do.  Continue reading “Hummus with Golden Beets” »

Chicken and Rice

Chicken and Rice

This is my moms go to meal, growing up this is what she made on her days off. In Albanian it is called pul me oriz, which translates to chicken and rice. This is my twist to her original which I find to be a little bland, sorry mom. She boils the chicken, and doesn’t use all the seasonings I use, and she doesn’t add mushrooms or peppers.   Continue reading “Chicken and Rice” »
