The Neiman Marcus Cookies

The story goes like this. A woman is shopping at Neiman Marcus and finds these delicious chocolate chip cookies. Thinking they’re only $2.50 she purchases them. She comes to find out that they are NOT $2.50 but rather $250. CRAZY, right?!?! Whether it’s truth or legend, the story behind these cookies have spread far and wide. I first heard about… Read more →

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 →

Filipino Beef Fajitas… It’s what’s for #dinner.

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! Haha, I’ve been watching too many Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes. Today, I’m sharing with you one of my favorites. To be honest, I have many Filipino favorites. It’s a nostalgia thing, I think. My maternal grandparents lived with us for the bulk of my childhood, and I loved coming home to my Nanay’s comforting… 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 →
