.It seems I’ve been on an Asian food kick lately. I have to admit, the flavors used in Asian cooking really just make my pallet happy. I honestly could eat Korean food, Thai or some of the other Asian cuisines...
When I create a recipe or a dish, I like to create something that appeals to a wide audience. Sometimes though, people get stuck in one box with food. They fall back on old favorites because it’s easier than...
I Sometimes people will ask me, “What’s your favorite food?” That is a pretty challenging question for me. I love so many different kinds of food from different cultures all over the world. I love that a lot of times...
As a kid, I always thought my grandmother made such weird food. She combined things that “shouldn’t” be combined, fed me things from other cultures and was always trying to introduce me to new things. Inspired tastes I was lucky to...
One of the favorite and most requested meals in our house is tacos. They’re so easy and I’ve never met a person that didn’t like a taco. My husband’s favorite tacos are always steak tacos and we probably either eat...
Summer is almost here and with it comes the desire to lounge in the sun, eat watermelon and grill anything covered in barbecue sauce. The first thing most people think of when they hear barbecue is ribs and they are...
I love soups, all kinds of soups. I can eat them all year round, even in the heat of the summer, and I love making leftovers into a bowl of hearty goodness.   For me all holidays provide an opportunity to...
There are a few flavors to me that just scream springtime and warmer weather in each and every bite.  Two of those flavors include lemon and blueberry. Oddly enough, winter is citrus season here, but I always feel the need...
With Easter just around the corner, and my house being the designated “host” house this year, I have been thinking up ways to add extra, special touches to the holiday celebration. We rarely get to stay home for a...
I just don’t have the kind of stomach that likes to eat first thing in the morning – unless it’s coffee. Around 10 a.m. my stomach decides to wake up and starts growling at me. By then I’m famished...
Spring is in the air and that means that people are coming out of hibernation and spring holidays are about to begin. With Easter, Mother’s Day and sunny weekend days ahead, I thought you might need a few breakfast...
Sometimes I find that breakfast dishes don’t contain enough vegetables. With bacon, sausage and eggs, I can easily get my fill of protein before the day gets started. But what if I wants a few colorful veggies thrown into the...
Ham and cheese is sort of like peanut butter and jelly. They’re one of those combos in life that always works and almost everyone can agree on loving. Whether it’s a sandwich, a croissant, an omelet, a slider or whatever...
Do you ever wish you lived in another part of the country or the world so you could eat the food that the region was know for on a regular basis? Anyone? Anyone? I often dream about where else I would...
I'm not really the type of person that can just throw things together when baking and magically have it taste good. Cooking, I can make this happen. Baking, well, let's just say one time in college I made out-of-the-box...
I’m a little obsessed with meatballs. To me they’re sort of like the Italian taco in that they can be anything but Italian – like a taco can be anything but Mexican - and there are endless ways to...
You know how you sometimes just get cravings for something minty and indulgent? Other people get these right? Especially around St. Patrick’s Day when you know minty, green food is around every corner? It’s literally around every corner when...
