Salmon Chowder

There’s no feeling quite like curling up with a warm bowl of creamy soup on a cold evening. Plus, if you haven’t noticed, I am a huge fan of salmon. It’s one of my 5 major food groups, along with candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup. Name that movie! That’s why I am so excited…

Sopa de Pollo Verde

Whenever I’m eating something that I truly enjoy, apparently I do a “happy food dance.” I’ll take a bite of my food and kinda shake my hips and do a little shimmy in my chair. Its funny because most of the time I don’t even realize I’m doing it until someone else points it out…

Caprese Salad, 3 Ways

Anyone who knows me knows that I love caprese salad. It’s my go-to dish whenever I need to pack a simple lunch, bring a side dish to a party, or simply when it’s too hot in my tiny apartment to justify turning on the oven/stove for dinner. I love it because it’s so easy to make and so…

Greek Salad with Spiralized Cucumbers

Since this is my second spiralizer recipe in a week, I must admit I’m a bit addicted. I go through phases where I don’t use it for a month, then use it every day for a week. There’s no in-between! This time, I decided to re-vamp one of my all time favorite salads, the delicious Greek Salad….

Brazilian Shrimp Soup

These past few weeks have slowly begun to look like spring. The trees are blossoming with little pink flowers, there’s usually around an hour of sunlight per day (followed by 9 hours of misty rain…it’s still Seattle), and the daylight lasts a little longer into the evening. It’s got me excited for the upcoming warmer…

Shrimp Salad with Thai Peanut Dressing

I’ve had something against peanut sauces for a while now, since I got glutened by one a few years ago after a waiter clearly didn’t understand what “gluten free” means. It took me all this time to stop associating the smell and taste of a peanut sauce with the gross feelings of gluten poisoning. I…

Spring Greens and Citrus Salad

I first had a salad similar to this one at one of my favorite restaurants, and was unsure how I would feel about the unique combination of toppings. I have never been a fruit-in-salad kind of person…until I had this. It may sound like a weird recipe to those of you who, like me, are…

Butternut Squash Soup

In Seattle, the season of Fall is often spent hibernating and avoiding the (never-ending) rain. That is why I am trying to find more creamy, comforting soup recipes. Nothing better to slurp whilst binge-watching Netflix in my fluffy bathrobe! I love the taste of butternut squash soup, but most other recipes tend to make it…

Clam Chowder

It is almost criminal to live in Seattle and not like clam chowder. I love how the warm and flavorful soup makes me feel on a rainy day. I had always expected clam chowder to be difficult to make, so I just went to restaurants whenever I had a craving, which was often. It was…

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

I have a deep love for Greek food, and this is probably my all time favorite recipe. I am so excited to share it! I make it year round, even when it’s too hot outside to be typical soup weather. The rich lemon flavor makes it just as refreshing on a hot day as it…

Fall Fresh Salad

I was kind of late getting onboard the kale train. I read about it online and knew that it was supposed to be some magical wonder food, but I had heard from a few friends that it was tough to chew and tasted bitter. After months of curiosity, I finally bought a large bag of…
