Mini Margarita Pizza-Cakes

I remember the time I first heard about Margarita pizza. I thought it was for grown-ups only because of the word Margarita. My parents had ordered a margarita pizza once and I was shocked when they handed me a slice! Haha… little did I know it wasn’t made with alcohol! It is now one of my favorite classic pizzas.

Lemon Pepper Wings

It’s football season and who watches a game without eating some tasty chicken wings! Lemon pepper chicken is one of my favorite chicken recipes to make, it’s fast and easy! I wanted to make some wings for the game on Sunday and decided to make Lemon Pepper Wings.

Seasoned Butternut Squash Tacos with Roasted Corn and Capsicum

I know I love to post chicken recipes… but here is a yummy recipe for all the vegetarians! Isn’t it when you go to Mexican places, the only vegetarian dishes they find are with beans and cheese (generally). So frustrating no? There are so many other veggies they could improvise with and the closest taco spot I’ve been to that has been courageous enough to experiment with different veggie options is Tacolicious.

Game Day Chicken Tacos

Summer is almost at its end, but football season has just started so things are still looking up to me! I love, love, love football season. All the commotion, the smack-talk, the colorful jerseys, and most of all…. can you guess it? THE FOOD! haha

Easy Classic Chicken Salad

I have been so busy this month and I wanted a quick fix. The first thing that came to mind was chicken (my favorite thing to cook). I love Chicken Salad, but whenever I go to the grocery store, I can never find one that I like. They either have too much mayo or not enough. Sometimes they have very little flavor overall or the flavor just doesn’t taste right.

I was craving chicken salad the other day and wanted it right then and there! I had just gotten home after my workout at the gym and was not wanting to be in that kitchen longer than I needed to be. Continue reading

Tom Rim (Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp)

Shrimp… I would have never thought in a million years I would enjoy it. The texture of shrimp doesn’t settle well with me. I realized how wrong I was after having this dish!! Maybe I had a bad batch, who knows!

Tom Rim, Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp, looked so appetizing, I had to try it for myself.  I did my digging and found a few recipes online. Read each one and went at it!

Roasted Garlic Cappa Santa

I was walking through the grocery store and wanted to make some type of seafood. I was thinking either Halibut or Salmon, but then I saw scallops!

Scallops are very delectable and low in both calories and fat. Most people avoid shellfish because they are generally high in cholesterol. They are a good source of potassium (cardiovascular health), magnesium (blood pressure), and phosphorus (important for strong teeth and bones).

Buckwheat Noodle Stir-Fry with Zucchini (Soba)

It’s just one of those days when you are so, so hungry, but you don’t want to be cooking in the kitchen all night. I opened my pantry and found a packet of buckwheat noodles and a bottle of mushroom based Soy-sauce. I immediately thought about a stir-fry and my mouth began to water. That was what I needed to make to hit the spot!

I was not sure if I wanted to make cold soba noodles, Zaru Soba, or HOT, like ramen (noodle soup). Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat (also means the noodles made from buckwheat flour) and Zaru is a bamboo basket/place setting.

Mongolian Chicken Chang’s Style

I have not been a huge fan of P.F. Changs, but everyone seems to love it. They do have some dishes that I do love, but not enough for me to love this restaurant as a whole. My top three are the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Chang’s Spicy Chicken, and the Mongolian Beef. After trying their Mongolian Beef, I wanted to see if the same flavors would work with chicken.

Chicken Biryani

A dish I have been wanting to try to make for a while now is Chicken Biryani. This dish is particularly known for its layers of divine flavors that slowly develop and blend together. In order to have that aroma and ambrosial taste, biryani is a multistep process that requires a long cooking time. The flavors in the dish come from a blend of spices that are typically not used together in everyday cooking playing a big role in its rich taste.
