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.

Vegetable Beef Taco Wedge Salad {Paleo}

Vegetable Beef Taco Wedge Salad {Paleo}

Oh bloody hell!, I told my niece after told me she was in the mood for tacos again. (What is it with kids and tacos?)

And then I realized that our Harry Potter movie marathon had gone on for far too long, as evidenced by me using Ron’s catch phrase again.

Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

While I was back home last holiday season and Mike was here in Kuwait, he took the opportunity to load up on a few choice junk food items that usually don’t make their way into our cart when he and I shop together.

I came back to a kitchen fully stocked with chips, soda, and candy bars by the case. (Oh my God, it was a nightmare. I can’t imagine what he was thinking.)

Chicken Salad Bowl with Avocado, Strawberry, and Walnut {Paleo}

Chicken Salad Bowl with Avocado, Strawberry, and Walnut

I have a weird method of cooking for Mike and I.

One thing I adore about him is how even though he is a crazy-picky eater, if it’s a dish he likes, he doesn’t mind eating it for leftovers…for a week straight. Yup, I’m a lucky girl.

Sweet Pea Salad with Scallion, Bacon, and Lemon Cream Dressing

Sweet Pea Salad with Scallion, Bacon, and Lemon Cream Dressing

When I think of spring – as far as food goes – green peas immediately come to mind.

I think it’s because green peas are not only one of my favorite springtime foods, but also because they remind me of the green buds on trees. And if you live in a place where it snows, you will know exactly what I mean when I say that buds on the trees in spring are a most welcome sight.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

One of my favorite lines in Friends is when Chandler is moving in with Monica and he and Joey are enjoying their last night together. Not knowing what the other was doing, Joey ordered pizza and Chandler ordered Chinese; Joey (who is of Italian descent) told Chandler (who is really obviously not of Chinese descent) something like, “It’s kind of nice…me bringing the food of my ancestors and you bringing the food of yours.” What made it so hilarious was Chandler’s reaction. (Gosh, I miss that show!)
