Thai Red Curry… It’s what’s for #dinner.

I’m going to be honest with you. I really don’t have “recipes” for many of the dishes I know how to make. Anyone else like this? Growing up, my family rarely had a recipe — a piece of paper with exact measurements and directions was a foreign concept to us. Rather everything is by taste or by tikim; the Filipino… Read more →

Lamb Naan Wraps… It’s what’s for #dinner.

HELLOOOO LOVELIES. Damn, I haven’t done one of these in so long!!! I’m so caught up with Lil Bean and work and being a wifey that I’ve neglected my blog… But let’s be honest, I probably only have one reader (hi, Mom!). Hahaha. Alright, so in order to maximize my time and be efficient with our meal preps I’ve resorted… Read more →

Barbacoa… It’s what’s for #dinner.

Have you noticed how many recipe videos are circulating on Facebook lately? There are a ton. I admit that I watch many of them. BUT there are only a few recipes I actually considered making. Reasons are that some of the food recipes I already have versions I enjoy using AND also some of the food recipes are kind of… Read more →

Roast Beef… It’s what’s for #dinner.

Mom loved roast beef dinners. We didn’t have them often, but once roasts went on sale, she’d swipe one up. I find that I tend to do the same thing nowadays, ultimately becoming my mom one day at at time. It’s not a bad thing – we all end up sort of like our parents anyhow. Love you, Mom! =D… Read more →

Tuna Avocado Salad… It’s what’s for #dinner.

Sometimes the day flies by and you end up having lunch pretty late. Let’s say around 3 or 4 pm. Hey, it happens. I know it shouldn’t happen. But it does. It ends up throwing your entire day off and you realize by 7 pm you’re not all that hungry! BUT you probably should have something. Sound about right? Welcome… Read more →

Mexican Caesar Salad… It’s what’s for #dinner.

A few weeks ago, I tried Chopt’s Mexican Caesar Salad. It was delicious. Though I substituted spring baby lettuces for kale, it was pretty tasty. So I decided, hey, I can make this at home, right? Totes. Like most faux recipes, I always research. (Well with most things in my life, I research the heck out of everything. Haha.) I… Read more →

Mussels and Frites… It’s what’s for #dinner.

We’re now deep in Lent season and if you’re like me, you hate having to resort to pasta and cheese dishes for Friday night meals. If you Google search “Lenten meals” you’ll come across recipes for mac and cheese, cheese enchiladas, grilled cheese sandwiches, meatless spaghetti, etc. All of those are red flags for me. Particularly because D and I… Read more →

Roasted lamb… It’s what’s for #dinner.

First, I think lambs are cute. Second, I think lamb is delicious. If you’re not a fan of eating lamb or goat or anything else that doesn’t moo, then stop reading. This post isn’t for you. If you ARE a fan of eating other types of meat, then continue on. (If you continue to read despite your aversion, you have… Read more →

Shredded Pork… It’s what’s for #dinner.

It’s winter time and that usually means I’m neck-deep in utilizing my slow cooker. Since moving to the East Coast, I’ve found having a slow cooker is a necessity. (Or maybe it’s since I’ve become an adult??? Who knows.) I’ve made mashed potatoes in a slow cooker. I’ve made stews and pot roasts. I’ve even cooked a whole chicken in… Read more →

Chicken “Tortilla” Soup… It’s what’s for #dinner.

The weather outside is frightful. I always said that if the weather drops to the 20s I better see some goddamn snow for this cold to be worth it. Unfortunately, I live in Washington D.C. and that is never the case. It gets pretty darn cold, and there ain’t a single snowflake on the ground to prove it. **Edit: Actually… Read more →
