Fresh Berries with Vanilla Yogurt
Today I am sharing with you a very simple twist for your everyday bowl of berries and yogurt. You will not believe that just a little sprinkle of the Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla powder on a plain yogurt will make magic…all of a sudden the berries are covered by an elegant layer of very delicate, aromatic and flavorful yogurt…
This is one of the posts that there is no need for recipe. Plain and simple, just top your fresh berries with yogurt. Oh, before I continue, when I was approached by Nielsen-Massey Company to try one of their products I picked the vanilla powder since I have never used vanilla in the form of powder. I received a sample of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Powder for review and I was not financially compensated for this post, all the opinions are mine based of my experience.
Now, back to the post…the special treat is in how you prepare the yogurt…in this particular post I used homemade non-fat yogurt (which I will share some other time). You can use whatever kind of plain yogurt you wish.
I added a bit of organic sugar and a sprinkle or two of the vanilla powder. I could not believe that just a little bit of the vanilla powder could give such an amazing aroma and yet delicate flavor to the plain yogurt. I hope you get a chance to try.
Did you know that berries are rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrient? The berries are loaded with anthocyanins due to the natural bright colors and flavonoids in the seeds and skin.
Thank you for visiting Color Your Recipes…have a colorful week!
Chef’s Dinner at Le Blanc, Cancun
Today I am sharing with you what we experienced at Le Blanc, Cancun for Chef’s Dinner. It was a lot of fun and super entertaining. I hope you get to experience it one day…
Every year for the past 4 years we have been going to Cancun for vacation, the kind of real vacation were we do not have to worry about anything while vacationing, just relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.
Don’t take me wrong, there is another kind of vacation that we enjoy too, the ones that we get to see the world, and learn about the history and how people live. On this kind of vacation because we go to places that we have never been before we try to see and learn as much as we can. Once the vacation is over we always feel that we need a vacation to recover…I am sure that you know what I am talking about.
Going back to our trip to Cancun…this time we stayed in Le Blanc. Le Blanc is the “high end” of the resorts which we are member of. Anyway, it was a phenomenal experience from the arrival to the departure. In this post I want to give you a little taste of the one of the highlights of our stay…Chef’s Dinner.
In spite of dining out quite often, this is the first time that I post something that was not cooked/baked at home. If you have been following my blog, you know that this is the case. So why am I posting this? Let me tell you, it was such an amazing experience that I had to share with you…and I hope somehow I can fairly present it to you at this post.
The dinner was held in the kitchen, yes, they had a little and very intimate counter for 3 couples. We were all seating facing the main kitchen, as we subject our palate to detectable flavors our eyes got to witness the “craziness” and the many activities taking place in the kitchen.
We were greeted and accompanied throughout the dinner by the executive chef, Marco Antonio Cazares and the sous chef, Guillermo Romero. During the dining experience other chefs from the Asian, Italian and French restaurant came along as well. Each dish was paired with different wine as well as champagne.
We got to taste 9 different dishes, they were all fantastic. All the dishes had their uniqueness taste and the presentation was so pretty that many times I just felt that I did not want to disturb the plate.
The whole dinner was so interactive and entertaining. We talked and ate throughout the evening.
Thank you chef Marco Antonio Cazares!
