Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between […]

Cheese Fondue

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see […]

Peanut Sauce

Peanut Sauce

This sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a sauce to go on meats, stir fry, veggies, or even pasta.  It’s very versatile and has an Asian flavor to it.  Try it with whatever your making next time that’s Asian themed and it’ll really bring the whole dish up a level.  My […]

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.  I’ve been on a little bit of a Mexican food kick so I decided to […]

Quesadilla Pizza

Quesadilla Pizza

There have been times in my life where I lived on quesadillas.  I’ve always been a picky eater and cheese and bread are my go-to foods.  You can’t go wrong.  The quesadilla was one of my favorite combinations of the two.  Some people just stick it in the microwave, but the key is to make […]

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

I’m trying to be adventurous.  I’m a fairly picky eater and I tend to stay away from meats and fish, but I’ve been trying to branch out.  When my boyfriend orders meat or seafood at a restaurant, I’ll try a bite.  It’s a big step for me.  Usually I’m not a huge fan of what he […]

Cauliflower with Tahini

Cauliflower Tahini

Cauliflower with Tahini sounds weird, I know.  I first saw this combination on a menu at Pita Jungle.  This place is awesome.  All the food is delicious and healthy.  If you have one in your area, you should check them out.  So when I first went there, I thought I’d try something new, “Caramelized Cauliflower […]

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Until recently, I didn’t really like soup.  Something about drinking food with chunks in it seemed really weird to me.  That was until I went to this small soup shop in Tacoma, Washington called Infinite Soups.  I had a tomato gorgonzola soup, and it was amazing.  Since then, I have tried other soups and they’ve […]

Spicy Tuna Melt

Spicy Tuna Melt

I found a stray kitty this weekend.  I was sitting on my porch (in Arizona this is acceptable in December) and he came up to me and started petting himself on my legs.  I pet him back and noticed he was horribly skinny.  I got some food and he purred and…well…. I live with three […]
