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…

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…

Deconstructed Egg Rolls

Can we talk for a minute about how much I love egg rolls? Or any Asian dumpling, tart, or bun that comes delivered on a dim sum cart? Yeah, trying to be low carb while loving these things so much isn’t exactly easy. I could probably go for dim sum every weekend and be happy,…

Fake Kentucky Hot Browns

I say they’re fake because I starting looking into what the real deal might be after seeing one of those recipe videos that are all the rage on Facebook right now. According to Wikipedia, a Kentucky Hot Brown (or Hot Brown) “…is an open-faced hot sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce…” and…
