A New Nutty Snack

Snackle Mouth

For the past week, I’ve been snacking constantly on a crunchy new snack. It’s naturally sweet, nutty, with a bunch of clusters packed with good for you ingredients. It’s called Snackle Mouth and has become my go-to snack during the afternoons.

Snackle Mouth is all about “clumpability”. You know those clusters you love to find in granola? Well, Snackle Mouth is ALL about those clusters around some of the best nuts in the world.

I of course allowed kimchi in my room- the more, the merrier!

Two years later and everytime I’ve run into a Korean restaurant, I’ve got to stop, sit, and enjoy a meal. Nothing beats the fiery and fermented flavors of the Korean kitchen, and the rituals just make it even more delicious. Having 10 to 20 small dishes before your main course arrives is foodie heaven, right?

Through the eyes of Marja, we discover a Korea unknown but familiar Read More

She starts every meal by sauteing fresh Oregano in olive oil. Every lunch, every dinner; whether it’s chicken breast or eggplant parmesan, you’ll know my Mother is cooking when the smell of Oregano fills the air. A staple of Caribbean cuisine, where it grows in backyards and farms of Dominican Republic, Oregano is an aromatic herb that infuses your meals with great flavor. Read More
