Better-Than-Caprese Pasta Salad

thumbnail image

On a scale of 1 to 10, pasta salads probably rank very high, with at least an 8 or 9. They’re so convenient and everybody loves them! I remember the first time I made a pasta salad pretty similar to this better-than-caprese one I’m sharing today. It was for a friend’s birthday three years ago. She […]

Raise your hands if you have no idea what chimichuri sauce is! Only a few weeks ago I had no clue either and now I’m obsessed. Alright, let’s break the suspense right away, cause I know you’re burning to know. You are, right?! Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce made with herbs (parsley and oregano), garlic, […]

Gordon Ramsay’s Quinoa Salad

Can I tell you a lil’ secret? This recipe was my first attempt ever at cooking quinoa. I’ve eaten quinoa a few times before, but I had never actually cooked it myself. The truth is, I wasn’t really convinced by its taste and above all, by its texture. My boyfriend Solal just hates it, and really, there’s very little things […]

Pesto Panko Crusted Fish

One of my best friends used to drink so much Coca Cola a few years ago that her mom said she had coke running through her veins. Well, I think I have pesto running through mine. There’s something magical about fresh basil leaves mixed with garlic, parmesan and olive oil. It just takes any food to […]

This week I asked you on my Facebook page when you’d wish to start seeing Fall recipes on Not Enough Cinnamon. Some of you said ‘right now!’ and some others said September. Oh and one lucky lady said October because…she lives in Hawaii! As far as I’m concerned, I think that we usually start talking about the next season […]

Ploughman’s salad

The first time I heard about Ploughman’s lunch I was really intrigued. I’m not sure about you, but ‘ploughman’ sounds odd to my French ears. And to be honest, I had no idea what this word meant. Even after two years in Australia, online dictionaries are still very useful to me sometimes! If you’re american and don’t understand […]

5-Spice Chicken with Vegetable Stir-Fry

I’ve never really written down a bucket list, but if I had, you would see “food traveling” at the top of it. Food traveling as in I’m visiting a country/region with the primary purpose of stuffing my face with all their delicious specialties for breakfast, morning snack, pre-lunch snack, lunch, afternoon snack and so on until I can […]

Smoked Salmon and Avocado Lunch Toast

Being an avocado lover in this beautiful country that is Australia is not always an easy thing. We sure know that avocados are a precious source of healthy fats – which help reducing levels of bad cholesterol – , potassium, lots of different vitamins and its creamy texture is just plain delicious… and yet, I can’t […]

Homemade Pita Chips with Mint Yogurt Dip

In 2011, Solal and I spent three months in Philadelphia, on the UPenn campus. This was one of the best summer I’ve ever had. I was still in law school but we were also working on a startup project and were looking for people to join our team. This summer, I discovered what would soon become an addiction: Chipotle […]
