Spicy shrimp and wild rice soup (Chinese)

This is one of our favorite soups. If you're not a seafood lover, this could be the ideal thing to start with to get more open to the seafood experience. Also a good start to get introduced to Chinese cuisine. It's not too spicy (depending on how much chili powder you feel like adding), and the watery part of it tastes like the ideal addition to the wild rice and the shrimps. Goes perfectly with a home-made bread. Enjoy :)

Straciatella cream pie (Italian)

Straciatella is an Italian term meant to describe any white vanilla flavored cream full of dark chocolate bits every here and there, a term most of all applicable to a type of gelato (Italian icecream). But also more consistent (and not frozen) dessert creams bear the lovely name of Straciatella.
Here is an example of a pie filled with that delicious cream. Enjoy.

Stuffed baked avocados (with rice, cream and pine nuts) (Middle Eastern)

We've had stuffed avocados before in some restaurants and we've come up with our version which we particularly enjoyed. But this is the first time we've ever heard of baked stuffed avocados and were intrigued. Apparently it's a Middle Eastern recipe and after we've made it we weren't disappointed. You should try it at least once. Enjoy :)
