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!

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.
