This week’s MotD theme: Foods in the Raw Along with sharing this beautiful mandala-like arrangement of an orange surrounded by orange … More
You can view today’s MotD as a trick of the “eye” or a feast for the palate. For me it’s a treat for my mandala soul. I love the shapes, the colors, and definitely the creative imagination of Kitchen Table Scraps, the fabulous makers of this Creepy Coconut Kiwi Panna Cotta (recipe included!).
When I spotted these Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies on Elana’s Pantry’s site the other day, I knew I had to showcase them…mostly for sentimental reasons. My mom used to make these every Christmas; she was a fabulous baker. And when I was old enough, she let me help her make them.
I love the multiple representations of symmetrical and asymmetrical mandalas (food and plates) and spirals (prawns), all presented in a simple, elegant, asymmetrical way over an abstract background. While being a potential feast for the taste buds, it starts out as a feast for the eyes.
Up until February 7, 2015, I had yet to experience jackfruit. While participating in the Conscious Life Expo, in L.A. that fateful day, one of the food vendors offered vegetarian food. I was about to pass on them because I have trouble digesting tofu…thinking that that was the main ingredient for their Indian dish. Wrong! They use jackfruit. After a little bit of hesitancy, I opted to try it. Wow! Loved it!
I saw this posted on Elana’s Pantry facebook page and had to showcase here on the MotD. I love when people make their food look pretty.
Of all the pies I enjoy, I love pecan pie the most. And this one by Jim L. Wright from his blog site “The Left Wright Brain” looks like sweet perfection…he even includes the recipe!
