Two-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

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.)

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.

Exploring Phuket Island, Thailand

Phuket Island, Thailand

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that we recently went on vacation to Thailand. What you don’t know is that we mostly planned this trip for Mike, who is an avid tiger-lover, to get to see tigers up close and personal (more on that in a later post!).

But in all honesty, I think I came away from the vacation with a deeper love and respect for Thailand than even my husband did…

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

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…

Peanut Butter, Banana, and Bacon “Elvis” Burgers

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.

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

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.

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.)

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

I think that same adage should wholeheartedly be applied to food.

Chicken Meatball Satay Curry

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.
