Lunch at Rice bar, DC



When: April 2, 2012

Where: Rice bar, DC

•Tofu Bibimbap: Bean sprout, carrot, gobinamul, spinach, shitake, mushroom, radish salad, tofu : my hubby thought it was fantastic!

• salmon avocado roll; spicy tuna roll: sushi – I am far from being an expert about sushi so I will say that it was very good in my opinion!

Why: Our friend picked the place. He works not very far from there and lived in south Korea for a year so he knows better than us how to pick a Korean restaurant!

Healthy, Asian, good, outside, good atmosphere inside! Recommended by Em

Home sweet home

When : February 20, 2012

Where : Home


Why :

I had received carrots, potatoes and a ton of “tangelos/oranges/pomelo” from the Green bean delivery. I needed to use the oranges so I made up a recipe inspired from other recipe that used oranges soup. It was amazing. It has a delicious taste. It original, healthy, fruity, veggie! Try it I loved loved it!

My saturday Banana Bread!

When : Saturday 11, 2012

Where : on my deck

What : Homemade Banana Bread and Earl Grey tea

Why :

Someone gave me 10 ripe bananas! Matt loves banana bread. But until now I hadn’t made an incredible one! I was looking for a good recipe. I made my own! It is a very good banana bread, not the best I have ever had but something far better than the last one!

Here is the recipe

Ingredients :

  • 4  ripe bananas, mashed ( = approx 2 cups )
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 + 1/4 cup sugar
  •  2/3 cup vegetable oil
  •  1 cup brown sugar
  •  1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup of coconut milk or milk (if you don’t have coconut milk)
  •  1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2  and 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cups chipped nuts

Preheat oven to 350F.

Mash bananas and set aside.

Beat the yolks with 1/4 cup of sugar until pale yellow. Add in milk, oil, vanilla and the brown sugar. Add mashed bananas. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, and add to banana mixture with nuts.In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with 1/4 cup of sugar until the egg whites are stiff but not dry. Gently fold in the egg whites in the banana/flour batter. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!
