Ginger Detox Latte

Anyone else trying to cut back on booze in 2021? One of my strategies to drink less this year is to replace cocktails with either refreshing mocktails before dinner or comforting herbal tea drinks after dinner. I’ve started making this ginger tea latte as a post-meal digestif of sorts. You can make it a couple…

Chai Latte Oatmeal Mix

Winter, winter, go away. Come again another day. As I spend another dreary day cooped up inside watching the snowfall, it feels more like winter than spring. Being cooped up has its advantages though. In this instance, I’ve got time on my hands to work on some crafty food projects and play around with my…

Ginger, Lemon & Honey “Teatail”

I have mixed feelings about September. I love the lingering days of summer (the temperature hovered in the 90s this weekend in Denver) yet I long for the chill of fall to set it (it was below 50 degrees one morning last week on my way to work). For now, I’m continuing to embrace those…

Matcha Breadcrumb Baked Chicken

My favorite way to use up leftover stale bread (like the rest of the loaf from my Earl Grey Tea Toast) is to turn it into seasoned breadcrumbs. Using the breadcrumbs as a coating for a baked chicken breast or pork chop makes for a quick and tasty weeknight meal. For this recipe, I marinated…

Tea Foodie’s top 5 recipes for 2012

2012 commemorates the year I started my tea foodie blog. I’ve tried to post something once a week to journal my cooking with tea explorations and tea foodie finds. It’s fun to look back and see how much content I’ve built up in less than a year. It’s also fun to finally have my cooking…

Ginger-Infused Sweet Potato Coconut Soup

My brother and sister-in-law own an amazing Thai-inspired restaurant in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. It happens to be one of the best restaurants on the island. You might think I’m biased, but the reviews on Trip Advisor, Fodor’s and Yelp will back me up here. I’ve tasted almost everything on my brother’s ever-evolving One-Ten Thai menu,…

Mango-Ginger Tea Vinaigrette with Romaine-Pancetta Salad

I’ve been working on a mango tea vinaigrette recipe for a while now, and I’ve finally come up with one that I love. It’s a sweet, limey and slightly creamy vinaigrette that makes a great dressing for greens, but it would also be great in a shrimp, crab or chicken salad, or it could work…

Green Tea Flu Shot Soup

The day after participating in a Twitter chat about tea and wellness last week, I fell ill.  Slightly ironic, I think. Sore throat, fever, stuffy head – you know, the works. Inspired by the wellness chat, I used what energy I had to whip up this quick chicken, noodle and vegetable soup, infused with lots…
