Carrot Slaw

I made a small bowl of carrot slaw today.  I finally baked the   lobster cake that I bought  from Pittsburgh so I thought of making a little carrot slaw to  eat with it.

  • 2 medium sized carrots from our garden)
  • 2 tablespoon of  miracle whip
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • a dash of slat, pepper, and sugar
  • 1 tsp of  relish
  • 1/2 cup  lettuce chopped finely
Just mixed them all together after your grate the carrots and chill it in the  refrigerator.  It's yummy!

Lobster Cakes

When we went to Wholey's for the first time in August, I spotted this  Lobster cake so I bought a pack.  I was not in the mood to  make a a heavy dinner tonight so I thought of baking the lobster cake so we will know how it tastes like.
Well, it was bad but it wasn't that great either.  The sriracha sauce on top of it made it a little better tasting though plus the  carrot slaw that I made.
I wasn't satisfied with it so I made a pasta salad for my husband and daughter.  Son and I had the lobster cake, rice, and carrot slaw.

Pasta Salad

I just whipped up a  quick dish today since I was out  this morning.  This rainbow pasta  is fun to serve to the kids.  I added some  polska kielbasa, tomatoes, and carrots.  This is really easy to make.  I use Greek yogurt and sweet chili sauce to bind it all up together.
I added a lot of cheery tomatoes to this  salad because I have plenty of them here at home.

Pan with Ceramic Coating Derived from Nature.

Cooking is something that I learned to love.   I hated cooking when I was   single but when I got married, I started to explore the kitchen and now I love it.  Having  the right kitchen utensils also adds excitement when you cook.  That's why I love  working with Ozeri because they have a hige  selection of kitchen tools, gadgets, and utensils that you can buy for easy cooking.  I got this  12" Green Earth Pan from them  and I couldn't be happier.  I have their  8" and 10" and I also love using them  when I cook.  
This pan is one of their textured series  featuring the  ultra safe PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non stick coating, a coating that is derived from nature.  Greblon  ceramic coating is from Germany, it has no harmful heavy metals or chemicals.  It has a comfortable silicon handle and it is very easy top clean.  The elevated texture  creates  an air pocket which distribute heat underneath the food  which enhances  the cooking.
I love that they included  this  Pan Protector which  protects the pan from being scratched when  being put in the storage together with the other pans.  I just love how my pans color looks, they make you want to cook all the time.

Here's what I cooked last weekend  when my new pan arrived.   Green Beans adobo with  beef, it was yummy!
 The next morning, I used it to make  my husband's favorite pancake, the buckwheat with  blueberry.  The  12" pan  was perfect to use in making my children's sand dollar pancakes.
New stuff in the kitchen  really inspires me to cook.  Now I am getting ready to make some dumplings for dinner.  I am using  ground turkey  because the price of  ground beef is getting ridiculously high, lol.  Anyway, thank you once again Ozeri!.  If you want an eco-friendly kind of pan  like just like what I am using now, head on to Amazon and get you one. I love Ozeri's pans so I highly recommend them!

Fried Okra

I am not very fond of Okra  because of it's slimy texture  but this year, I decided to plant some in my garden so I could introduce it to my children.  As expected, they did not like it but I don't want to  waste the fruit so I ate them myself lol.  I got tired of putting it in a soup so I thought of frying it for a change and voila, it worked!
Aren't okra  beautiful when cut this way?  It would have been easier to fry them if I just cut them in half but I like how it looks when cut this way plus I tested the new paring knife that my husband got me.
I used my tempura batter mix to coat them to maker it crispy.
I was hungry when I was cooking it so I did not wait till it's brown before I  removed them from my frying pan.  I was actually eating it while I fry them lol.
The rest of it, I ate with rice and achara.  It was so good with the sriracha sauce.
