Spaghetti night – miss it no more. The very aptly named spaghetti squash provides a tasty, healthy substitute for regular pasta. It is actually really yummy, very interesting and may surprise you. Once ready, it can be used to prepare tasty dishes.

The coolest of all is knowing that besides you’re consuming a “vegetable noodles”, it has about 37 calories per 100 grams. A great request for those on a diet. Spaghetti squash is low in carbs and calories and is a plentiful source of beta-carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It also contains omega 3 and half a dozen other healthy fatty acids, besides being a powerful antioxidant.

I like to make spaghetti squash about once a week because I can do so much with the roasted squash. One night I can make it with pesto, the next night as a slightly more elegant meal shrimp sauce, bolognese (meat) sauce, cheesy béchamel

One squash with your favourite sauce will serve up to 4 people. It’s so tasty you won’t miss the pasta!

 

This Shrimp Sauce recipe can satisfy a number of meal occasions and is sure to impress. It’s quick and easy. It’s perfect for casual entertaining as it is packed with flavor. Use jumbo shrimp if you want to make it impressive!

If you prepare the spaghetti squash in advance, it is ready in minutes.

 

Crème caramel (French), flan, caramel pudding or Brazilian Condensed Milk Flan (Aka Pudim De Leite Condensado) is a custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is pudding with a hard caramel top.

If you are one of those who lose an entire hour to make it in the conventional oven… This recipe is for you! Using a Pressure cooker is time saver, it’s done in just 10 minutes.

 

Let’s be honest—store-bought sun-dried tomatoes tend to be a bit leathery and tough, without much flavor. They seem like a faded, desiccated memory of a tomato, rather than a fragrant, intensified taste of summer days. Homemade “sun-dried”1 tomatoes, on the other hand, are another thing entirely: fragrant and chewy but not tough, with complex, concentrated tomato flavor and a slight sweetness.

Slow baked in the oven makes these oven dried tomatoes the best. Drizzle with olive oil, toss with spices to make the perfect appetizer or side dish.

Not a labor-intensive process, but certainly a lengthy one. Of all the methods for preserving tomatoes, drying them in the oven is the least fussy. Plus, drying preserves their sweetness and flavor best. And these flavorful little gems cost so little when made at home; it’s worth the time they need to achieve that chewy, raisin-like texture.

One thing I can guarantee is the appetizing fragrance in your house of tomatoes slowly roasting to dried perfection, especially if you choose to season them with garlic and herbs.

In the meantime, think of all the tomato bread, salads, pizzas, pasta, pestos and sauces you’ll be able to make once they’re done. It’s tempting to prematurely devour those tiny little sweeties, hot, pungent, sweet & salty with good virgin olive oil as they are, spread on crackers or toasts.

This 3 ingredient gluten/grain-free pizza crust is the best. It’s Fast & easy to make, without having to get out a food processor and does not require a yeast dough, where we need to wait for more than 1 hour to eat. This recipe also does not use cauliflower or any vegetables.

Simple and gluten-free Brazilian cheese puffs or rolls, aka Pão de Queijo (literally translated to ‘bread of cheese’ or ‘cheese bread’).

There are several different methods to make these little balls of heaven. A lot of them involve lots of hard to find ingredients, and methods like heating a mixture on the stove, kneading big messy dough… but this, adapted from the one my friend Roseli Quarti has sent to me, is the quickest, easiest, short-cut method with an ultra Fast liquid batter that you just put the ingredients in a blender, pour them out into a mini-muffin pan, and bake. This version is definitely less dense than the kneaded dough variety.

This super easy and Fast recipe is fail proof and absolutely mouthwatering. Make a bunch of these; you will finish them all in no time because these cheese puffs are so addictive, delicious, and once you start eating, you just can’t stop… no kidding – they are just that wonderful. I dare you to just eat one.

 

Slow-roasting tomatoes bring out such sweet, intense flavor. You get almost all of the concentrated flavor of sun-dried tomatoes but without the drying.

Mixed with tons of garlic, oregano, and fresh basil, I don’t know how it works… but it tastes like heaven in your mouth. They take on an intensely deep flavour after roasting and can be used in many different ways. It’s perfect to eat with toast, bread, crackers, salads, pasta, goat cheese, bocconcini… you name it.

My mom makes it since I was a child and everyone loves it.
