    Summer’s a perfect time of year for bbq and nothing is more appetizing when eating food outdoors. Gorgeous smell of bbq meats and delicious salad that goes well with the food. My fave salad is the potato salad, it’s simple and one can make it even a day before the bbq or picnic. Here’s my version of this delish potato salad and enjoy :)

Melt the butter and let cool slightly. Whisk the eggs and the sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients together and fold into the batter. Fold in the chocolate. Pour the batter into a prepared cake tin and bake for 30 minutes or until set, but remember that the cake is supposed to be gooey! Serve with whipped cream.

    What I really like about this recipe is that you cook everything together at the same time. The idea is to throw everything in just one pot, it’s super easy. For this recipe, you add all the ingredients together at once. Then you just boil until the water is gone. Easy, delicious pasta for dinner. Have a go at it :) 
One Pot Pasta- serving 4

 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti1/2cup cherry  tomatoes, halved3 cloves garlic, minced1 tsp red pepper flakes2 sprigs of basil + additional for garnish2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 onion sliced4 1/2 cups water (or  chicken stock)shredded Parmesan cheese (for garnish)
Method:
1.Add all the ingredients into a large pot 


2. Turn stove to high heat and bring ingredients to a boil. Continue to cook until liquid is nearly evaporated (about 10 minutes). Serve with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.

    Kawaii! These little kitties aren’t just unbelievably cute, they’re also edible. They’re made by a Japanese mom named Caroline for Neko no Hi or Cat Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd.

    Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.

    Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.
