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…

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…

Another Spaghetti Squash Creation

Mission: make healthy dinner quick with what’s on hand, which happens to be primarily ground turkey and spaghetti squash… aaaand GO! Now before some of you go all “WHAT?! There’s butter and cream in the recipe! How is that GOOD for you??” These are generally good fats that help with nutrient absorption and good fats…

Fresh Garden Salsa

Over the summer at the Rumpus Room, Archaellys and I grew a few tomato plants and they seemed to ripen all at the same time.  What do you do with a metric asston of tomates?  Make salsa, of course! Now my only thing is that you really need to taste test as you go because…

Homemade Gluten Free Onion Rings

I love onion rings because they’re amazing.  What I don’t love is that stuffed up gluteny feel after pigging out on gluteny things.  So I found an awesome way to make onion rings myself and now the bad thing is I want to batter everything in this and fry it.  Total new problem.  Siiiiiiiiiigh.  But…

Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever had the magical vegetable that is spaghetti squash?  I have to admit that I wasn’t super fond of it the first time I tried it and occasionally I’m not so keen on what I’ve done with it.  I’m still learning what flavors I like when using spaghetti squash.  Sometimes it ends up…

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Wanna hear something mind blowing, my fellow Americans?  I’ve heard that corned beef and cabbage isn’t really a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick’s Day.  Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Normally I would get all geeky and research this, but I’m going to go the lazy route and simply say that corned beef and cabbage is a tradition in…

Lost Movie Night Noms: Arc’s Birthday Dinner

It was Archaellys’ birthday not that long ago and somehow I forgot to post the coordinating movie night nom for that celebration. Oops. I don’t know how it happened, but the week must have gotten away from me. It’s always kind of my thing to let the birthday celebrant pick whatever they want and I’ll…
