Thai Green Curry

Hands down, my favorite curry is a Thai Green Curry. The coconut milk base with all the complex flavors is both somehow rich and light to me at the same time, with just enough spice to give a slight tickle. It doesn’t always have to come from take out thought. In fact, this is a…

Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese

Box Macaroni and Cheese was probably one of the first things I learned how to cook. I freaking loved the stuff. And then I learned how to make it from scratch and my world was changed. Still to this day, when I see a dish of warm gooey mac and cheese, I get a little…

Ginger Beef Stir Fry

I’ve really wrestled with whether or not I should post a stir fry recipe. I grew up making stir fry, and in my half-asian house, we treated it like a garbage plate. You know what a garbage plate is right? Like when you’re cleaning out the fridge and you have some produce that’s about to…

Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs

Repeat after me: sweet potatoes aren’t just for autumn and Thanksgiving. I’ve posted a Sweet Potato Hash recipe before, which I served as a side to a roasted chicken, and this is basically a different version of that. It’s scaled back and this is the version I do for breakfast (or breakfast for dinner). It…

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…

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,…

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…
