Ajvar, Red Pepper and Eggplant Dip Recipe

As promised here is a simple recipe for making ajvar, the traditional red pepper and eggplant dip served with cevapi, Bosnian (Serbian/Croatian) grilled sausage. It’s naturally vegan and gluten free so it’s something that can be eaten on sandwiches, with chips. It’s easy to make as long as you have access to some type of […]

Product Review: Bobo’s Oat Bars

Unfortunately, a local natural food store is shutting down for good. The silver lining as a consumer is that I discovered arguably the best impulse buy ever: Bobo’s Oat Bars, at a discount. These 3 ounces bars from Boulder come in a bunch of flavors. I picked up original and peach. For the first tasting […]

Parle is the largest biscuit maker in India. This strawberry sandwich cookie falls under their chocolate chip Hide and Seek line. The package contains 9 pieces. Off the bat the candy-ish strawberry aroma hits your nose. They’re studded with chocolate bits and it has a satisfying crunch. The filling is creamy and doesn’t taste as […]

Nuggle Chocolate (Product of Trinidad and Tobago)

The Nuggle bar is kind of like the Trinidad and Tobago version of the Baby Ruth bar. It has peanuts, caramel, fudge and chocolate. These things sound good on paper but the end result isn’t as tasty as expected. One the positive side it’s packed with peanuts. On the negative side, the caramel and fudge […]
