Meatball Bahn Mi

We love bahn mi sandwiches, in fact they are one of the few sandwiches he actually approves of that isn’t toasted. I have found that for me it’s easier to make a really flavorful meatball and then add the traditional toppings. For a good bahn mi you have to find a good hoagie that isn’t…

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Bowl

Rice bowls are one of my favorite lunches and so easy to throw together and enjoy. This salmon bowl was no exception. I started rice, coated the salmon in my sweet chili sauce, and while that baked I chopped, sliced, diced fresh fruit and veggies and then we had a fresh and bright bowl for…

Sweet Chili Sauce

This is one of my favorite sauces. We love to use it for dipping egg rolls, potstickers, my husband even likes it to spice up mac and cheese…I’m not sure if I recommend that or not. I also love to use this sauce in cabbage slaws and on fish. Be creative with your uses and…

Citrus Carnitas Tacos

Happy taco Tuesday! For this round of tacos I turned to my favorite taco meat, pork. Some deliciously slowed cooked pork roast, paired with bright citrus flavors and pickled red onions are what we needed to brighten up dinner on another wintery day. On this post I have a few different recipes. One for the…

Almond Chia Seed Muffins

We love muffins in this house. They are our go-to breakfast, unless it’s the weekend or I’ve prepped something else ahead, I am notoriously bad at making breakfast each day. So every once in awhile I will make a big batch of muffins, bag some up for the next couple days and freeze the rest….

Pan-Seared Chicken with Tarragon Cream Sauce

The deliciously herbal flavor of tarragon pairs perfectly with the bright pop of cherry tomatoes. The layers of flavor in this sauce tastes like it was a long labor of love but the meal came together in just around 30 minutes.

Nutella Blondies

It’s a well known secret that nutella makes almost anything better, and it was no different when I added a layer of nutella to the middle of these blondies and then topped with a nutella buttercream. They were a hit at my holiday party and people were taking some to-go! I doubled up my recipe…

Garlic Sirloin Skewers

These garlic sirloin skewers were easy and decadent. I was in an out of the kitchen in about 30 minutes and we were watching our favorite show for an at home date night eating perfectly grilled sirloin with an easy rice.

Chicken Parmesan with Tarragon Tomato Sauce

Chicken parmesan is a delicious classic. So classic that I won’t spend much time talking about it other than it’s become one of our go to recipes since it pairs so well with fresh pasta, or pasta of any kind. When I make tomato sauce I usually like to add a little spice to it,…

Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles

There’s nothing like the classic chicken and waffles. Add a little sage and a bourbon maple syrup and you’ll be in a food coma in no time! I love this meal, because it’s not only deeply satisfying for fried food cravings, but I can save waffles for breakfasts throughout the week. Personally I don’t like…
