2-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

“You want to make potato salad again?”, Mike asked me one day.

We were headed to a potluck pool party later that day and he was apparently sick of potato salad. (I can’t blame him though; I brought our favorite potato salad to three different parties in the past month! Truth be told, I’m a little sick of potato salad too.) (more…)

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles {Popsicle Week}

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles

A while ago when my friend brought me back wood apples from Sri Lanka, she also brought me another sweet treat: pineapple!

If you’ve never had Sri Lankan pineapple, it is surprisingly quite different from Hawaiian pineapple. Fresh, ripe Sri Lankan pineapple is sweeter and has a deeper pineapple flavor than Hawaiian pineapple. Sri Lankan pineapple still has the pleasant sweet/sour taste that Hawaiian pineapple has, but with less of a tart tang and more of a sweet, natural concentrated pineapple flavor. (more…)

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)

Peanut Butter, Banana, and Bacon “Elvis” Burgers

Say you tell someone you just had an amazing burger…

The burger itself was perfectly seasoned and it was finished off with great mix of sweet/salty/savory toppings.

They ask what the toppings were, and you casually reply peanut butter, banana, and bacon. (more…)

Shrimp, Black Bean, and Tomato Salad with Feta and Spicy Southwest Dressing

So it’s almost 5 o’clock on a random weekday afternoon. Your bestie sends you an email saying she has the evening free, and she wants to pop by for a visit around 7.

Your fridge is empty (ironically, tonight was going to be grocery shopping night), and you scramble to think about what you can pick up for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner.

I have you covered with this lovely dish. (more…)

Savory Pineapple Salad {Paleo}

Savory Pineapple Salad

Most of us go through phases…

For example, I’ll go through the same routine for months, and then suddenly wake up one day and decide I want to completely switch up my workout program, rearrange the bedroom furniture, and – you know what else? – have broiled fish with roasted vegetables for breakfast. (Yeah, weird.) (more…)

The Ultimate Granola Cookies

We all know not to judge a book by its cover.

I think that same adage should wholeheartedly be applied to food. (more…)

Chicken Satay Meatball Curry

I love chicken satay; I mean I really adore it.

I never hit up a Thai restaurant without ordering it, and I like coming up with different variations of it (like soup and sandwiches) in my own kitchen. (more…)

Wood Apple Juice

Wood Apple Juice

One of my sweet friends recently went to Sri Lanka and came back with all kinds of stories about her homeland. I had to live vicariously through her, listening to her exotic tales and seeing her country’s beauty through her eyes, because it’s pretty unlikely that I’ll get the chance to visit.

She also came back with a ton of fruit for me – huge, fragrant pineapples, mangos, and wood apples – and if you know me, you can probably guess that I was just about shrieking with delight. (more…)

Savory Scallion and Cheese Scones

I’ve become somewhat of a scone connoisseur in the past couple years from making them so much.

There is just something about scones that appeals to me… (more…)
