Masa Harina Waffles (Corn Waffles)

I had recently made pupusas, thanks to watching one of my favorite Bon Appetit food editors make them on their YouTube channel, but now I had a bunch of masa harina (corn flour) that I wanted to use up. Sure I could make tortillas, and thanks to my new cast iron tortilla press, it would…

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…

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…

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…

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….

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,…
