A Few Of My Favorite Finds…

Hot Wasabi Peas

A perfect crunch of savory hotness in every bite, these babies are perfect for popping into my mouth after dinner or mixed into trail mixes for an on-the-go snack.

Fig Jam

Aunt Val, you’ve got me hooked. Fig jam was introduced to me years ago during the holidays as my aunt always has a beautiful spread of crackers, cheese n’ fig jam amongst the appetizers and I’ve grown to love this delicious spread atop muffins, turkey, tofu and ricotta cheese n’ crackers.

Baby Orange Tomatoes

Too cute not to purchase. Well, that’s my philosophy at least. These pretty little mini orange tomatoes are so beautiful I can’t help myself but to pop a few in my mouth when I’m walking around the market or Whole Foods Market…they’re so sweet … almost like a fruit and perfect in omelets n’ salads.

Goat’s Milk

A new found love since I’ve recently discovered that I can consume some lactose n’ dairy as I’ve been experimenting with dairy the past few months and really enjoying the tastes and pleasures without getting a stomach ache. Let’s not get too carried away now, I’m still lactose intolerant however it seems my body is starting to accept certain cheeses and goat’s milk n’ goat’s cheeses, as well. Very exciting.

Fava Beans

Uniquely fun and a fabulous replacement for edemame if you’re not a fan of soy or if you don’t have an edemame on hand when a recipe calls for it.

Quinoa

Ahhh yes, the good ol’ gluten-free grain of choice. O how I love thee.

Kimchi

I just love the name and saying it over and over again…Kimchi Kimchi Kimchi, it’s fun isn’t it? Well, it’s also very tasty as this Korean dish is comprised of preserved veggies which marries the pucker of pickles with the sizzle of chiles. Yum.

Pears

Simple yet satisfying. Where have they been all my life? I enjoy slicing pears and plopping them into a pitcher of ice water along with cilantro and fresh lime wedges for a delicious naturally flavored water.

California Oranges

So bold. So beautiful. So delicious. I’ve been putting them into my morning smoothies, squeezing their sweet juice onto my afternoon salads and drizziling an orange citrus marinade atop my grilled fish for dinner.  Let’s surely not forget dessert, where I’ve been sprinkling orange zest and a squeeze of orange juice into my Greek yogurt parfaits. Perfect.

What are some of your favorite finds?

Looking to make some new foodie friends. Here’s a new site that I came across called Grub With Us, which let’s you meet new people over a family-style meal.  Cute idea, isn’t it?

I am SO glad that someone else can’t resist those little orange tomatoes as well! I could devour them in a day, they taste so much like candy!

And that fig jam sounds amazing! Where did you get it from??

Thank you, Joanne believe me I ate an entire carton of these cute little orange tomatoes this weekend at my friend’s house..they’re so naturally sweet and delish and so easy to just pop into your mouth, aren’t they? I love em…the Fig jam is from Dean n’ Deluca…it’s a favorite of mine atop oatmeal, toast and even used as a dressing or marinade. Thanks for your comment; have a great day.
Best,
Amie
