Chocolate Lava Cake

This was every bit as good as it looks. We used this recipe, and the only adjustment that I would make next time is to reduce the cooking time. Ours wasn't runny inside at all, although it wasn't overdone either... I think you have to take it out before the top looks done if you want to get that molten lava effect.

Ethiopian Food




We love Ethiopian food and since there's an Ethiopian grocery store very close to us that sells fresh injera bread and spices, we decided to make the main course at home. Key ingredient was berbere (a mix of spices) and we made gomen kitfo and mesir wat (collard greens with cheese and red lentils). It came out awesome....next time, we just need the honey wine in addition.

Happy Halloween

We carved pumpkins and made 2 flavors of roasted pumpkin seeds - one with salt and cayenne pepper and one with sugar and cinnamon. :-)
We also made chole with extra spooky red rice. Here are the pumpkins posing with our dinner - the one on the left is scared of our food!

Pumpkin bread with walnuts


Pumpkin season is here! We made pumpkin bread using this recipe, but we used less sugar (2/3rd) and added walnuts.

Pasta with vodka sauce

This was our first attempt at vodka sauce. We used less cream than suggested, so it didn't turn out very pink. But it was tasty.
