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…)

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.

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…)

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…)

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.

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. (more…)

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. (more…)
