Mushroom Baozi

Baozi is one of the most delicious savory breakfasts you can imagine eating. This steamed bun is stuffed with mushrooms, Chinese pickles, seasonings, and a very delicious sauce. It's time to make your morning meal a little more interesting!

Does anyone else here barter with their significant other? A typical Sunday morning dialog in our room as we groggily open our eyes to our son’s bubbly face goes something like this: “Oh no…we don’t have any bread in the house.” “I think there is some flatbread in the freezer.” “Or you could go for […]

Dan Hong Gao (Sichuan Stuffed Pancakes)

This Chinese stuffed pancake is a pillowy snack that is filled with crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, and sugar. Pancakes at 4 PM anyone?

People often say that you get up on the right side of the bed…or the wrong side. I’m not buying it. Breakfast is what determines my state of mind for the day. Hurry me through my coffee (x2), give me a hot chocolate with no froth, serve me STALE baguette…and you’re bound to see a […]

Nutty Banana Bread Scones And Cinnamon Glaze

Scones that taste like banana bread! Drizzled with cinnamon glaze, you'll be licking the plate for sure!

  Sometimes in life, you just gotta roll with the punches. When it hands you lemons, make lemonade (Cherry Mint Lemonade…). When it hands you fireworks on a holiday you aren’t celebrating, drink wine. And when it hands you a hangover and you realize nothing is open and you have no bread, you open the […]

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Recently, I saw something online about a dating site…for foodies. My first thought was, “Why would that be a site that would work?” I mean, I know it’s good to have a few things in common and everything, but choosing your dating or even future life partner based on whether or not he’s a foodaholic?! […]

Chocolate Chunk Almond Banana Protein Muffins

Chocolate Chip Almond Muffins

If you’ve followed Curried Cantaloupe over the past year, you may already know how much I love breakfast. (We made coconut orange smoothies, french toast pancakes, and funfetti waffles after all.) I’m a total morning person. No, I don’t get up to do yoga or anything. Nor do I set out for a 5 mile […]

Pumpkin Butter Yogurt Parfait

Pumpkin Butter Yogurt Parfait

I’m kind of on a yogurt kick…because I just bought a yogurt machine!! I’m trying not to spend money on things I can’t take back with me next year as we prepare to think about trying to settle in the USA on a more permanent basis. But this one has been churning around in my […]

Orange ya glad…?

Homemade Pumpkin Butter Recipe

It’s pumpkin season! Not only did a million pumpkin recipes manage to pop everywhere this past week, but I started to crave pumpkin the second I read the word pumpkin somewhere. Is it just me or are things getting a little out of hand? I don’t remember seeing pumpkin milkshakes in August when I was […]

Homemade Funfetti Waffles

Funfetti Waffles

This girl deserves some cake right up in here! Me, that’s who! Actually, you too! I’d love for you to celebrate with me – the more the merrier I always say. But it’s actually only 8:30 in the morning so there’s only one way I’ll feel good about eating cake in the morning. Because there […]

Pancakes Perdu

French Toast Pancakes - Pancakes Perdu

Pain perdu is the original version of what we call French toast. Arrêtez! Stop! Aiiiiie! Don’t start hitting me with your day-old baguette! (That would hurt. We used to sword fight with them in my house. Luckily, no one was ever injured. Not seriously anyway.) Pain perdu is quite different from anything we tend to […]

Blueberry Peach Guava Smoothie

Blueberry Guava Peach Smoothie (5 of 7)

Okay, okay, there’s also a banana, but that blog post title was starting to get a bit long, don’t you agree? So, first of all I need to give credit where credit is due. I had been trying to think of creative ways to gobble my way through blueberries, when I came across this incredible […]
