Deliciously Healthy: Oats

So delicious.

My oatmeal consists of oats, almond milk, seasonal fruits, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a banana. The seasonal fruits were some blackberries that I got and some frozen blueberries. The banana and the almond milk gently sweetens the oatmeal making it that delicious (I didn’t have to put sugar or sweeteners in there). Yes, I mashed up a banana in there.

To serve it up, I have a glass of almond milk to drink as well.

Rigatoni in a Garlic Cream Sauce

Mmmm, so here’s another edition to the fusilli. I had a whole pack of ground beef that I didn’t use (I was originally going to incorporate the ground beef with the Italian sausage but didn’t). Anyhow, I had some rigatoni kicking around. So, I made a cream sauce that is loaded with garlic. Yes, I love garlic!. So simple, but so good. And actually, there’s not much butter or fat in this sauce. I took the time to really drain out the oil from the ground beef. And I actually used some plain yogurt in the sauce (this eliminated the use of a lot of butter/cream/milk).

Fusilli in a Spicy Tomato Sauce with Italian Sausages

I had realized that I haven’t had pasta for a while. I love love love pasta.

So I looked in the pantry and found some uncooked pasta. I decided to go with the fusilli because I had red chili peppers left in the fridge and I wanted to do a spicy sauce.

None the less, I added some bell peppers, onions, garlic, chili peppers, and Italian sausage to the sauce with the noodles. Result? Delicious !  =)

29th Ave Cafe

Oh my goodness. The other day, we ventured out to this little restaurant recommended by one of our friends. Was it delish? Yes !

This cute little restaurant (somewhat hidden) had amazing Japanese food. No, I am not talking about “sushi”. I am talking about good ol’ Japanese meals. It was fairly priced but there are a couple of dishes that were a little more expensive. One of them was the Steak with Soy Butter Sauce which went for $20.00. The portions however, was huge! Mmm, the curry sauce was perfect; it was savory with a little bit of sweetness.

I would totally go back there again 😉

Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle

Hi Guys !

This was supposed to be posted somewhere back last year (totally didn’t upload this one). But better late than never right? =)

So there’s this place that I’ve tried that is known for Taiwanese Beef Noodle in Soup. And yup; it is quite delicious.

The only thing is that (which I knew would happen), the noodles are hand-made and therefore thicker in texture (also more filling). I think that the next time I go there, I will try the snacks & appies.

I mean, their marinated beef wrapped in crispy pancake was mm mm good.
This is a link to their website:

Baked Sole in Le Creusets

Hey Hey,

So, in addition to the baked sole dinner that I have made, I had some ingredients leftover. My good friend Anne and her husband Jimmy came over so I decided to make a mini snack for all of us.

First Layer


I sauteed some bell peppers, onions, garlic, and fresh basil. Then I lined the bottom of the Le Creusets with them.






First Bake


I placed some sole on them and baked them for about 20-25 mins.







Finally, I finished them off with two eggs each and baked it for another 15 mins.

It was delicious and healthy !

– I figured that I should make more use of the Le Creusets that W purchased. I think there will be many more to come =)

– Of course, these wonderful pictures were photographed by my amazing friend Anne.
