Watermelon Soda aka Party Punch – Video Post

As I say I the video, this is my idea to make a healthy party punch. I just think there are so many possibilities to make fun, fruity drinks without the use of sugar and soda.

You could make this more “adult” by adding your favorite rum but my intention was for the little ones.

Ginger Carrot Soup with Shrimp and Rice

Much like my Winter Squash Soup with Roasted Seeds, this dish was inspired by a soup I got for lunch a few weeks ago. Consequently I was with the same friend. I think we need to have lunch together more often!

Mini Shrimp Rolls

Ever since opening the frozen bag of shrimp to make my Quick Ramen Noodle Lunch. I’ve been a bit shrimp obsessed. I love brainstorming so I asked myself, what can I do with precooked shrimp that’s fun and easy? First, I was going to try a shrimp pasta meal, but the husband nixed the idea, saying, “When have I ever eaten shrimp and pasta together?” OK, then, I’ll make something for myself.

Pepperoni Pizza Salad

That’s right, I said “pizza” and “salad” in the same breath. I have NO idea where this idea came from. I was driving home from the gym the other day imagining what I could make for lunch and “pizza salad” popped in my head. I often get my best ideas in the car, it’s weird.

What’s a Cook to do?

Want to know how to peel an onion? When you should cover a pot? How to thicken gravy? How about when to beat egg whites? Stuff a fish? Crack a coconut? Even how to fix cracked pie crust? Cut perfect orange wedges? When to use what herbs? These topics are just a small sampling of […]

Ginger Garlic Chicken with Vegetables

I guess you can call this a stir-fry but I don’t have a wok and I really steam the veggies so I’m not really sure what to call it!

I bought some fresh ginger this weekend, it was my first time. Normally I make stir-fry meals with ground ginger and that works out great but I wanted to try something new. I’m glad I did! The fresh ginger has such an awesome smell and it’s much easier to work with then I thought. Just a simply peel the skin off slice and dice like you would garlic.

Ask Roni – Whole Wheat Flour

Hi Roni,
I am planning on making your pumpkin muffins this week, and so I was wondering…Are there general rules to follow when substituting regular flour for wheat flour in a recipe? When you swap in wheat flour, does this change the amount of baking powder, liquid, or any other ingredients in the recipe? I have family recipes for pumpkin bread and banana bread and I would love to learn how to make them healthier with wheat flour. Thanks!

Blackened Ahi Tuna with Simple Mango Salsa

Let me confess right now, this is the first time I’ve every bought and prepared a tuna steak. So, yeah I’ll admit it, I’ve been kinda scared to give them a try at home. Recently I had an some Ahi Tuna at a Japanese restaurant and it was awesome! I’m also a HUGE fan for the tuna appetizer they have at outback.
