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…)

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

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…)

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.) (more…)

BLT Pasta Salad with White Beans

Out of all my childhood memories, I remember summer vacation most vividly…those memories seem to be brighter, louder, and definitely more full of delicious smells and tastes. (more…)

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. (more…)

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. (more…)

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!) (more…)
