Fathead Pizza

Labels: , , ,

I haven't heard of fathead dough. I read about it a week ago from someone who lost a lot of weight by partial fasting, that is, not eating anything after dinner until lunch the next day. He combined the fasting with low carb diet recommending the fathead pizza dough. I tried it but it was not satisfactory because it came out too pale and soft.

Curried Okra

Labels: , ,

I rarely buy okra because I can't stand its slimy texture. When I do cook them, it's on a very high heat dry cast iron pan which somehow reduces the slime. Yesterday, I asked an Indian lady at the store for recipe recommendation and she said to saute sliced onions, add the okra and stir fry over high heat, then add add a little curry powder just to flavor it a bit. Some coarsely chopped different colored cherry tomatoes make the dish colorful and add nutrition too.

Buco (Young Coconut) Sherbet

Labels: , ,

I've made lots and lots of ice cream since I bought my Italian ice cream maker but I haven't made sorbet/sherbet in it until today. I used frozen buco (young coconut) because there aren't any fresh ones lately.

Homemade Coconut Jam

Labels: , , , ,

Several months ago, I bought from a Filipino grocery store a jar of the best [IMHO] coconut jam. The label says it's from Quezon province. The jam is very dark and thick but surprisingly not very sweet. It's too far to drive to the store and the Filipino online store has sold out.
