Butternut Squash Soup

My last post was basically about how hot it’s been here in the Bay Area, so why is this next post about soup? Because you can eat this one cold. Or hot. Call me weird, but I like soup in the summer because it’s just easy to eat. Maybe it’s my Filipino roots… Mom always…

Chopped Greek Salad

It’s hot in the Bay Area. Like… waaaaaaaaaay hot. Nobody wants to cook, and if it weren’t for basic life necessities, I’m not sure we’d be eating. That’s when we end up eating a lot of cold and easy foods, like salad. Only thing is I get tired of traditional salads pretty fast, so I…

Quiche

One thing I really enjoy is breakfast. In trying to eat better, I am trying to have more veggies throughout the day, but it’s hard to incorporate them at breakfast sometimes. I also have a hard time with having enough time in the morning for a veggie filled breakfast. That’s why I love breakfasts that…

Almond Flour Flatbread

I always forget to take a picture of just the flatbreads for this recipe, which is why it’s taken a while to post it. It still haven’t taken taken a picture of them on their own, so enjoy the picture of my Asian tacos for this recipe. Sorry it’s not a recipe for the Asian…

Snarfy’s Basic Meatloaf

Apologies for the lack of posts this month – I’m working back toward some normalcy. My mom had a cancer diagnosis so you can imagine where my brain has been. I haven’t been doing a ton of cooking, but been doing a lot of stress eating. Fortunately though, it was caught early and has not…

Snarfy Style Burgers

Sorry for the late post. I got really good about getting stuff up here on Wednesdays. I had originally intended to show off our Orthodox Easter dinner from last Sunday, but I got called away to tend to my momma in the emergency room and posting was the last thing on my brain at that…

Salisbury Steak and Mashed Cauliflower

Salisbury steak is a favorite in our house. I mean, who doesn’t like meat and gravy? Well, obviously non-meat eaters, but we all eat meat in this house. Essentially, this version of salisbury steak is a meatloaf patty done in a hurry. This certainly makes a great weeknight meal, but is impressive enough for a…

Instant Pot Pesto Chicken Stew

This started off as a “Can we try this?” from the future MIL. Usually, I try a recipe as written the first time and then make changes, but I felt like messing with this one right off the bat. I’d made something similar before so I felt like it was okay. Right off the bat,…

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I tried overnight oats before and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately, whatever recipes I followed before just didn’t do it for me. I couldn’t hang with the texture, let alone the cold oats. I was never big on oatmeal before so I just kind of thought that oatmeal in any shape or form wasn’t…

Curried Air Fried Chicken Wings

Hi, I’m Snarfy and I’m a Chicken-Wing-A-Holic. I’m only enabling myself because I bought an air fryer recently and that makes having super crispy chicken wings easier than it should be. There’s a Vietnamese restaurant in my hometown that has curry chicken wings on their appetizer menu and I’ve never seen them anywhere else. They…

Avocado, Chicken, & Egg Salad

So I’ve been doing some clean eating meal plans with Johanna at Love Your Health¬†again to clean up after the delicious horror story that was eating around the holidays. In January, I did her free 5-day Whole Food Challenge with my whole family and some friends to get back in the habit of eating better….

Beef, Butternut Squash, and Barley Soup

I love my Instant Pot. I also have to admit that stovetop pressure cookers scare the crap out of me though. My mom used to cook soup in a stovetop pressure cooker when I was a kid because it would quickly make the most deliciously tender meat, but the sound would always freak me out…
