I’m on a serious ice cream rage. Each morning I wake up thinking about what type I want to make next. If it wasn’t for the limited space in my freezer and the potential for extra rolls on my body, I’m sure I would make a new flavor every day.

This might be the weirdest method I've ever used when cooking. I always joke with my cooking friends that Cook's Illustrated just likes to mess with their readers - like "let's add this crazy step and see if people actually do it!" I for one would just like to know how they come up with this stuff.

I have a vague memory of my mother serving hard boiled eggs that were purple on the outside. I'm not talking about the shells. I mean that the white if the egg was purple. The color penetrated partway into the white, but there was still some bright white.

When I started my new job a few months ago, everyone told me, "Oh, you're not going to be poor anymore!" or "Now you'll be able to go out for drinks (or concerts, or plays, etc.) on the weekends!"

I didnâ€™t make this dish with very special ingredients to have it looked colorful. Be it yellow, orange, green, lime and black, each ingredient is inexpensive and possibly is among the common leftovers in our fridge.

Letâ€™s talk about sweetness. Hereâ€™s a cake we made for a Strawberry Shortcake fan. Itâ€™s a 7Ã—4 moist chocolate cake exclusively from our home-based bakeshop and for a sushi lover...

As for the pound cake sandwich, it was most likely invented by ingenious moms and grandmas looking for ways to use up left over slices of cake. It is currently back in vogue thanks to celebrity chefs such as Gale Gand and Martha Stewart, who have offered their own sweet versions.

When I first move to the US, I had problem eating the pork from here. I find them too porky and with a very strong gamey smell. If you see my previous posting I hardly cook with it except for a few dishes, Siew Yoke and occasionally using pork ribs in soup. It took me over 5 years just to get used to the smell and now I think they tasted alright and I slowly incorporate pork into our meals.

Its quite apparent that our dear Intern Doug has an interminable amount of energy. I was still padding about the house in pj pants and slippers this morning, coffee cup in hand, when I received an image of Heidi (so sorry ladies, but Heidi is Intern Doug's adorable wife . . .) next to a large, molded French Lemonade Jelly Shot, with the caption "photos from this morning".

In Iran, we like to eat the young almond fruit whole. These are the "green almonds," named because of the soft green skin on the outside. The inner shell has not hardened yet and the young almond has a tangy, sour flavor.

Why not pack a barrel of these bad boys and hand them out to the other passengers, charging only a mere $4.50 per bar. It's cheap compared to airplane food and you'll actually accept cash, unlike Air Canada.

Did you know that the word avocat in French translates to both lawyer and avocado? Strange, but true.

Iâ€™m trying to get back into a healthy routine and learn how to love, and even crave, fresh and nutritious food. A quick search on Epicurious and Iâ€™d found my answer: Mint Vinaigrette.

There is one thing that I love, something that never disappoints me and always leaves me satisfied: the smoked salmon pasta salad from Whole Paycheck.

This is the story of an accidental-drunk-mac-and-cheese-tasting. Gone-horribly-wrong.

Can you believe it? We were excited to eat our raw egg yolk. It goes to show that itâ€™s what you feed your children on a consistent basis that develops their palates and makes the seemingly â€œun-normalâ€ seem normal.

Do you remember those chocolate nests I made last Sunday? Well, they hatched.
