Hola! Once again, I am back from a long hiatus… Truth is I recently got back from Mexico, and then there was St Patrick’s Day, and then I ran a half-marathon, and overall I’ve just had so many pre-graduation things to do that my blog has been slipping through the cracks of my schedule. But all good things come to those who wait and so I finally picked up the slack and took a 30 minute break today to share this post with you. Continue reading “Breakfast Burrito Bowl of Champions”
Passion Project: Butter-Basted Ribeye with Caramelized Mushrooms and Blistered Shishito Peppers
Butter. Basted. Ribeye. How much better can it get?
For this second beef recipe, I went with one of the most classic cuts: ribeye. In France, you can be pretty sure that almost any local bistro will feature it on their menu. In the most typical fashion, it is served with French fries and called “entrecôte frites”. I guarantee you that’s a dish you’ll want to order if you find yourself in France one day.

Passion Project: Shredded Pork Tenderloin over Rice and Greens
It all started with a craving. A pulled pork sandwich kind of craving. I don’t know where it came from, but I know that I suddenly needed one. Have you ever made pulled pork at home though? Not only does it take forever, but it also requires one of the largest cuts of meat there is: pork shoulder. I neither had the time, nor the appetite to cook a whole shoulder. So what could I do? Pulled pork is typically made from the shoulder because of its high fat content. When cooked at a low temperature for an extended period of time, the fat slowly melts and the meat strands fall apart. Could I get this result with another cut? Continue reading “Passion Project: Shredded Pork Tenderloin over Rice and Greens”
Passion Project: Yellow Chicken Curry with Potatoes
For this fourth day of my “chicken week”, I’m taking you on a short trip to Asia! More specifically, I’m exploring one of Thailand’s specialties (and my go-to alternative order to Pad Thai): coconut-based yellow curry with chicken and potatoes. Can you smell the lemongrass, ginger, and all of the spices developing? Because I can, and how I wish I could share that! Continue reading “Passion Project: Yellow Chicken Curry with Potatoes”
Fridge Friday: Avocado Chicken Salad, No-Mayo
Another day, another toast! With chicken salad, no mayo anyone? This toast recipe is the last one I’ll post for a while, but as I previously mentioned open-faced sandwiches have been my go-to rushed meals recently. And since this chicken salad is so good, I figured that I’d share it with you even if I recently posted another toast recipe (combining Scrambled eggs, broccoli rabe, and shiitake!).
