Today I realized that I have saved a lot of banana chips from the so called tropical mix nuts and tropical fruit bags that we buy from the health store, every time I buy a bag I realize more and more that they are just full of banana chips and hardly any mixed nuts or any tropical fruits…

I tested a cheese sauce last night and it turned out delicious, hearty,
and cheesy goodness… And the meat added an extra delicious flavor.

I also used the same sauce to test my homemade Nachos and it turned out as
delicious as the Penne dish.


Also tested this sauce with steamed vegetables and there are no words to
describe the flavor, all I could say that it is absolutely delicious.


I am still in the testing stages with this sauce; I have to try and work on
it few more time, so I won’t post it just yet.

I promise I will once I get it perfect and up to standard to post.

Chicken and Cabbage

I had a recipe in mind that I wanted to create and try for dinner tonight, I called a friend and said would you like to be my tester? she said yes, I would love too (she loves my food) 🙂

I started writing down the recipe while I was on the phone with her, I gave her the ingredient and the instructions on how to prepare the dish.
she did not have any coarse Bulgur on hand so she made brown rice instead. Coarse Bulgur is what I wanted to go with this chicken dish.

Bulgur (the fine grade) is famously used in Taboli dishes but it is delish when its made as pilaf. a refreshing change from regular rice or brown rice but It will require a lot of flavor added to it, spices and flavored stock, it is very bland on its on.

The chicken dish turned out delish also, my own created mix of spices worked beautifully in both the Chicken and the Bulgur dishes, I will try the chicken dish again with one less vegetable and see the difference. over all both dishes were successful tonight.
