Cool Ranch Dorito Crab Cakes

I had a dream that the CEO of Pepsi, Indra Nooyi called me. It turns out she’s been reading my blog and is a big fan. Who would have thought that such a powerful business woman reads my blog? I have never been so flattered. When Indra came across some posts about Pepsi, she was so excited to hear that I am a huge Pepsi fan that she decided to give me a call so we could do some collaborating. It went like this:

Quiche in a Bread Loaf

The quiche in a bread loaf idea actually came out of an hallucination that I had. I think it’s considered an hallucinations. I’m not clear on the definition of a hallucination. I’ll just tell you the story and you let me know.

White Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cocktail

I remember when I was a kid having my first taste of Tequila Rose.  I wasn’t a kid. More likely a teenager.  Which is a kid.  I’m not here to defend myself and you’re not here to read about my pathetic life.  Unless you need to feel better about yourself, then be my guest and read some past articles.  They should cheer you right up. 

Almond Milk Horchata and Green Tea Smoothie

During summer Horchata is one of my favorite drinks to keep in my fridge.  Always mixing and twisting and trying to come up with new flavors or use it in a different way.  One of my favorite Horchata’s I ever made is the Chai Horchata.  I used it making brown rice and almonds.  It is deeeelish.  You wouldn’t think about chai for a summer flavoring but you would be wrong.

Green Tea and Brown Rice Ice Cream

One day while I was at work a coworker asked me if I wanted some green tea. Green Tea? Hell no I didn’t want any green tea. I’m at work, I’m trying to accomplish things, I need coffee. Give me green tea after a massage and a sushi buffet and let me take my nap. Then she pulled out this mystical looking tea bag in a shape I had never seen a tea bag shaped before. She held it up and spun it around like it had powers. “It has bits of brown rice in it” she said. I just nodded my head like I was in a trance and said “yes, I would like some of that.”

Molten Vanilla Cheesecake

Years back I went to Brazil to visit one of my most amazing friends ever, Michel. Let me tell you meeting Michel is one of those moments that happens only in the movies. It was totally random and bizarre and I consider him one of my closest friends and I love the hell out of the guy. He is beyond talented, he is dedicated, hard working, soft spoken, smart and physically flawless to look at. He is actually everything I hate in a person and I love the guy beyond the stars. I would do anything for the guy.
