Qsine Treseviche Recipe
Must-Try Recipe: Qsine's Treseviche
By Kelli Acciardo | 09/11/2014 - 16:14

Qsine is one cruise ship restaurant that's seriously loco — in the best way possible. The idea behind the whimsical venue aboard Celebrity Cruises, is to take you on a culinary journey that delivers elements of surprise and delight. Before you even get to the food, you are seated in chairs with one arm, while full wine glasses rest on their side in front of you (think: Alice in Wonderland-meets-Top Chef). The menus come on iPads and feature fantastic fusion dishes like Lobster Escargot, Sushi Lollipops, and our personal favorite — the Treseviche, which is a tiny trio of salmon citrus, sea bass, and shrimp and scallop varities that will seriously please your palate. Try this simple, yet impressive, recipe out at home for your next tapas-style dinner party!

BBQ Chicken and Black Bean Tostadas
Brown Bag It with Packable BBQ Chicken & Black Bean Tostadas!
By Amanda Cargill | 09/03/2014 - 07:15

The packable lunch. It's great in theory - it saves you money and is probably healthier than the fast food and grub truck options nearest your workplace - but takes time to prepare and may not be the yummiest thing you've ever eaten. (The transport factor limits most dishes, which means your sack lunch will usually consist of a sandwich, chips, and an apple; not exactly foods that satisfy your lunch break craving and inspire the rest of your workday.) 

Good news, though. Packable meals are getting a revamp, as food producers and grocery stores recognize the need for healthier, more exciting lunch options. Among those stores is Target, whose Market Pantry line is both fresh and affordable. Its products feature in this BBQ Chicken and Black Bean Tostada recipe, which is a perfect example of the new take on the staid sack lunch. Pack it up for you and/or your kids, and see if the lunchbox that contains it doesn't come home empty.

Coconut Flan Dip
We're Flipping Out Over Triscuit's Sweet Coconut Flan Dip!
By Amanda Cargill | 09/02/2014 - 16:59

Here's the deal: dip is good, but sweet dip is great. Why? Because sweet dips combine the social snacking benefits of your standard issue dips - guac, salsa, hummus - with the sweet-tooth-satisfying, sugary yumminess of dessert. And if you have to ask why that's great, well...you might need to see a physician.

Case in point, this Coconut Flan Dip. Equally delicious whether prepared with instand pudding, cooked pudding or purchased prepared pudding, it's a cinch to make and is guaranteed to please anyone lucky enough to get a taste. To amp up the tropical flavors, make it with coconut cream pudding. Whatever you decide, you'll be glad you did this dip.

And before you go loco over the store-bought guac - we know, guacamole is sacred to any Mexicana worth her sal - consider that a) the prepared guac is made from real avocados and is preservative- and gluten-free, and b) it will save you a solid 10 to 15 minutes of prep, precious time as any busy mom or working woman can attest.
