Four Foods Friday 004:

Here are this week’s four questions.
Let’s talk about salty snacks.

1. Potato chips. Flavored? Regular, ridged or stacked?
- I love the barbecue flavored potato chips. It doesn't matter if it's ridged or stacked. I love them all!

2. Cheese doodles. Yellow or white? Puffed or crunchy?
- I haven't had any cheese doodles at all.

3. Pretzels? Your favorite shape? Favorite flavor?
- Hmmm. Not a fan of pretzels. The only pretzels I had were the knotted, cholate-flavored pretzels I used to get during Christmas when I was younger.

4. Share a recipe for salsa or dip.
- I recently discovered creamy ginger dip. It's made from fresh, finely chopped ginger, lemon juice, a bit of sugar, water, soy sauce, ground pepper, and a dollop of mayonnaise and sesame oil. It goes well with fresh spring rolls, and if you are adventurous enough, as dressing for salads.

Four Foods Friday #003

Here are this week’s four questions.
Let’s talk about foods that sound funny.

1. What’s the funniest sounding food or ingredient you know of?
- Spotted dick. Who would ever thought that a spotted dick is a kind of pudding with dried fruits?

2. How do you pronounce “cavatelli”?
- I usually pronounce foreign words the way they are spelled/written. According to, it's pronounced as kav-uh-tel-ee.

3. How do you pronounce “gnocchi”?
- I used to say "no-chi" but my mother corrected me - noh-kee. Italians say nyawk-kee. (Source:

4. Share a recipe that calls for mozzarella cheese.
- That's easy. My favorite is baked aubergine (eggplant) with mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and some herbs. Delish!
