  1. Outstanding recipes. Unique and fresh! But how do you know your food taste like in the end? How do you know blueberry jam make a very great pair with ham and fetta cheese? Any tricks?

    1. Hi Lissa! Thank you! Hahaha yeah I usually got inspired by foods I meet (always escape for new unique foods on weekends). So for this sandwich, I went to the Hollow Mill Valley, Vermont, US, and asked the cash register girl for the best unique menu they got. And it was applecore sandwich! It inspired me how their bacons, apple slices, and thick sweet apple jam go along really well!
      And like usual, I then make a revenge in my kitchen to make such delicacy for cheap 🙂

      Does it do the trick?


    1. It’s very nice of you to give such positive feedback, it is my pleasure to share something that would benefit many people. Yours as well! Let’s keep each other updated for any chance to collaborate on sharing about tempe there!
