  • Roasted Salsa Verde Recipe

      This Roasted Salsa Verde recipe will mean you don’t ever have to buy store-bought salsa again! Every once in a while, I buy prepared salsa from the store. A bottle of organic salsa verde (green salsa) made its way into my cart recently and though I’d scanned the label read more…

    Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls

    The other day, I wanted fresh spring rolls. Badly. I also happened to be staring at the collard greens in the grocery store and this idea was born. I know you love quick and easy recipes, but I’ll be honest: this one is a bit more labor intensive because there read more…

    Simple Shrimp Ceviche

    Can I interest you in a meal that cooks itself? Yes? I thought so! It’s not too good to be true, it’s just ceviche – a dish of seafood that’s “cooked” using citrus juices and served up with ingredients like tomato, jalapeño and avocado. YUM. Last year, I posted a recipe read more…

    Jicama Carrot Slaw

    Memorial Day Weekend is almost here. That means it’s time for more BBQs and summer fun, and it also means it’s socially acceptable to wear white. I almost never wear white because I’m the world’s biggest klutz. Truly. Just this morning, I was grading lab reports with a shaker bottle read more…

    Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha) Recipe

    Thai Coconut Soup is one of my favorite Asian dishes. Usually I have recipe writer’s block. The harder I try to think of something to make, the more I can’t. It’s those times when I buy random ingredients and get home to my pantry and fridge that inspiration strikes. My read more…

    Cinco de Mayo Steak Salad Recipe

    Living in San Diego, you could say that Cinco de Mayo is a pretty big deal around these parts. All over the city—and pretty much the rest of the US—folks will be gladly using this holiday to eat vast quantities of guacamole and drink lots of tequila. I hate tequila. read more…

    Indian Pineapple Cauliflower Rice

    A couple weeks back, I went to an Oscar party with the wonderful folks from Invictus and had to think of an Oscar-themed dish to bring along. Originally, I was joking around with Tiger Burgers (a nod to Life of Pi and Richard Parker) but then I kept thinking Pi-neapple. read more…

    Paleo Banh Mi Sliders

    Banh Mi is basically a Vietnamese sandwich made with French bread and layers of amazing flavors: sweet, salty, tangy, umami (savory) and spicy. [Side note: “Whaaaat?! A Vietnamese sandwich with French bread?” Yes. A quick Google search of French Indochina will give you all the historical details]. Vegetables, meat and read more…

    Pineapple Avocado Salsa

    Sometimes I get bored of regular salsa, and I’m not one to buy fruit at the market very often – I just don’t fancy it all that much, unless we’re talking about berries in season. Lately, I’ve made a couple of fruit salsas to brighten up some otherwise heavy winter read more…

    Pork Stuffed Mushrooms

    Sometimes I have no plan when it comes to recipes, and I spend time wandering around the market until inspiration hits like “wha-bam”! This one came to me while standing in Tesco on New Year’s Eve trying to think of something clever to bring to a friend’s house later that read more…

    Holy Guacamole Salad

    I’ll admit it: I love the Food Network. While I’m more drawn to shows like Chopped! and Iron Chef America, I decided to watch an old episode of Barefoot Contessa yesterday. Normally, Ina’s food isn’t really up my alley but her recipe for Guacamole Salad spoke to me right away. read more…

    Shrimp in Coconut Broth

    Man, I love the Twitters! So many interesting people with lots to share. In fact, my most recent follow is Gordon Ramsay (@GordonRamsay01)…I bloody love him, especially on Hell’s Kitchen where he curses and kicks people out of the kitchen! Today he posted a delish-looking recipe for “Mussels in an read more…

    Green Papaya Salad

    I fell in love with Green Papaya Salad on my trip to Bali in 2011. We took a side trip to Nusa Lembongan, a tiny island off the coast of Bali and spent a couple days snorkeling and enjoying maximum relaxation time. While there, we dined outside at a Thai read more…

    Easy Ceviche Recipe

    I’m not sure how authentic this Easy Ceviche is, and frankly all that matters to me is that it’s delicious and simple to make. With warmer weather coming up soon, this cool seafood-based dish is a nice addition to those spring-summer favorites that you may already keep on hand. Ceviche read more…

    Fennel Tomato Salad

    The first time I ever smelled fennel, I was brought back to my 21st birthday and the shot of Sambucca I was tricked into drinking (black licorice in a glass…ew!). After I got over that initial response and tried it, I was won over by its delicate anise flavor and read more…
