Whole Pompano Fish | With A Spin

Are you intimidated by the thought of cooking a whole fish? Please don’t be. Whole fish is one of the most sensational and delicious ways of cooking fish at home.

Thyme infused honey | With A Spin

Disclosure: I am very pleased to bring you this “The Art of Cheese” post, a partnership between Honest Cooking and Castello Cheese. All views and opinions, as always, are completely my own.

 

I love cheese. My daughter got my cheese loving genes and she loves cheese. My husband, who wasn’t a big fan of cheese(we usually do not grow up eating a lot of cheese in Bangladesh) has also began to love cheese for the love of the two girls in his life. These days, we often make a meal out of a selection of cheeses accompanied by some kind of fruits, vegetable, bread or crackers. Most of the times, we just stretch our imaginations, like the fabulous apricot cheese bites, and use what we have on hand to pair with cheese. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to matching a cheese with an accompaniment. It is really just a matter of what appeals to you and tastes right to you, so anything goes.

Brussels sprouts kabab | With A Spin

We live in a time-starved world. We want to accomplish so much but have so little time. We have so little time that spending precious hours untangling problems is the last thing we want to address. We pretend to be oblivious. In this fast-paced modern society, the intimate, one-on-one connection is too often neglected in a rush of familial and social obligations.  Often, we ignore problems for so long that they become even more complicated, tangled, twisted.

Chicken Curry with tahini  | With A Spin

 

Life is like a mirror. If you frown upon it, it frowns back. If you smile, it returns the greeting.
- William Makepeace Thackeray

 

Life is a priceless gift, a privilege that we should strive to live to the fullest. You decide how to live it, so why let the moments go to waste? Enjoy every bit of it. Appreciate every moment of it. In order for life to treat us well, we need to treat life well in an optimistic way. If we do nothing, nothing will ever happen. Nothing good, nothing bad, nothing exciting, nothing terrifying. Absolutely, nothing. To get to somewhere, we need to start somewhere because doing nothing at all will always get you nowhere!

Healthy, hearty, homestyle! This warm, cozy, fragrant stew is one of our favorite meals to enjoy during weekdays.

Spicy Apple Chutney | www.withaspin.com

Apple chutney didn’t exist in Bangladesh when I was living there. I migrated to the USA and heard everyone loves apple sauce, so I had to give it a try. The sauce slid down my throat without leaving much of an impression. I didn’t dislike it, but it was bland..blah. Next thing I know, I needed to give the applesauce some character so made chutney. Apple chutney, a sexier, more exotic version of apple sauce. While applesauce slides down the throat without leaving much of an impression, apple chutney hits the tongue in all the right places. Apple chutney is sweet and hot, spicy and sour, sticky and silky all at the same time. Trust me, no one can deny the irresistible taste of apple chutney.
