Can't Afford to Travel? Let Your Taste Buds Take You There If the travel bug has gotten ahold of you lately but your funds are limited, then Budget Travel could provide the solutions you need to get from here to there.
This Summer YumSugar and I went on a trip around the world, and we invited you along for the ride! We devoted entire days to discussing the delicious cuisines from 10 different countries around the globe. I've looked back at all of our coverage and picked out my favorite memories from our culinary journeys. Here they are for you to revisit! Starting in top left corner and moving clockwise:
- Yum celebrated all things Brazilian by making Pão de Queijo, a Brazilian cheese bread.
- I planned a travel party.
- In Morocco, we chowed down on kefta — spiced meatballs — with eggs.
- We learned how to say cheers in 12 different languages.
- When we went to Japan, we channeled our inner sushi chef by rolling sushi.
How about you? Where did you enjoy traveling to this year?
Last week I told you how I love to have the correct serving dishes for specific international items. Although I have never been to Japan, I really want a fabulous sushi serving set. When I'm out eating sushi, I always admire the delicate, beautifully patterned serving sets and want to bring this sentiment into my home. So I asked you to help me find the most spectacular sushi serving set out there. You saved the pieces in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag Sushi Serving Set. I really like the aqua fish shaped sushi set that UrbanBohemian bookmarked. It's enough for two people and the gorgeous color of the plates makes me want to use these dishes for more than just sushi. However my favorite sushi set was found by gruaig_rua. The cobalt blue bamboo pattern is both traditional and sophisticated, elegant and modern, and absolutely lovely. Great job girl! Scroll through the list below to see what else you guys came up with!

All week we have been showing you how to use food to take you on a journey in your own home. Cooking up delicious, exotic and foreign dishes is a great way to globalize your life, as is using fun internationally-inspired cooking tools and gadgets. Judging by all of the cool worldly things you've bookmarked in the Yum Market on TeamSugar, you guys already know this! Experience Italy with this ricotta making set that mellie_608 bookmarked. Or serve your ratatouille in classic French dishware or teach your kids how to use chopsticks with holdstix. Other ways to bring the world to you: drink Hawaiian coffee, keep your stews in an authentic Brazilian soapstone, and mix up guests a classic Cuban mojito.
So what is a clafouti (pronounced kla-foo-tee)? It's a custard-style baked French dessert, traditionally made with cherries (but you can substitute most any fruit). The batter is similar to pancake batter, but the result is more like a flan. It's wonderfully delicious served warm with powdered sugar on top, and is ridiculously easy to put together. To make this tonight, read more.
When I was in Nice, France, I was mildly surprised to see that a large chunk of the salads on menus were Nicoise salads - especially because Nicoise is a French phrase that means "as prepared in Nice." Dishes a la Nicoise generally include tomatoes, black olives, and garlic. The quintessential salad contains these basics and additional tasty, fresh ingredients like green beans, tuna, and hard boiled eggs. Traditionally the salad is made with anchovies, but you can omit them if you like. The recipe also calls for a homemade vinaigrette, but you can easily substitute your favorite oil and vinegar based dressing if you are short on time. This hearty salad is a meal on its own - one that is perfect when paired with a French white or bubbly. To get the recipe, read more
One of the best sounds in the world is the lovely crack that happens when your spoon breaks through the top of a creme brulee. The caramelized sugar crust gives way to a luscious creamy custard and the lovely sound means that an amazing dessert is awaiting you. Since today is National Creme Brulee Day, I think we should all head into the kitchen and make one of our very own. It takes some specialty equipment (like a culinary blowtorch), but it's definitely worth it. To check out the recipe, read more
