Palak Paneer, Pulao, and Roti

Palak Paneer, Pulao, and Roti

Indian food. I love Indian food so much. In fact, being a vegetarian would be a lot easier if I were to just eat Indian food every day. However, sometimes I get in the mood for other types of foods, so…yeah. I’ll eat more Indian […]

Baked Turkey Tacos

Baked Turkey Tacos

When I’m on track with my diet, I prefer to eat raw in the mornings and evenings and eat a healthy, cooked meal for lunch. When I’m craving something a bit more naughty, I make these guiltless, turkey tacos. They are comprised of extra lean […]

Healthy Fried Brown Rice

Healthy Fried Brown Rice

Healthy Salmon Fried Brown Rice with Kikkoman Soy Sauce (not low-sodium.) I love Chinese-American food, and I love making Chinese-American food. In the past I have made Orange Chicken, Lemon Chicken, and Chicken Fried Rice. At Chinese-American restaurants, I usually order Orange Chicken or Fried […]

Mom’s Blueberry Salad

As you can see, I didn’t bother styling this salad. I just let it be. . . A little more than 24 hours ago my mom arrived safely at home after spending more than 3 weeks with her favorite and only offspring – me :). […]

Chicken, Shrimp, & Chorizo Paella & A Giveaway!

Two years ago, my mother and I went to Madrid, Spain. Once there, I was tempted to try paella, but the presence of seafood prevented me from doing so. You see, the only types of unfried seafood I like are very small shrimp (like in […]

Cream of Tomato Soup

Cream of Tomato Soup

Here’s another dish I had to consume during my wisdom teeth “saga” (I exaggerate, of course). This soup was very good and hearty. However, it didn’t take long for me to get tired of soups. What I liked about this recipe was that it had […]

Old-Fashioned Bacon Meatloaf

Old-Fashioned Bacon Meatloaf

Why do so many cooks still act like they assume only women cook? For instance, aside from using “y’all” all of the time, Paula Deen frequently addresses her audience as “ladies” or “women” even though she has two sons who love to cook. On Spanish-speaking […]

If you don’t like your different food items to touch each other, please don’t look at the subsequent photos. 🙂 When Monica from Lick the Bowl Good and I decided to meet up for the first time, we went to Mimi’s Cafe. The first I […]
