I think I have a meatball addiction. Anything shaped and cooked into a little golf-ball sized sphere of meat makes me happy. So to break the cycle, I give you individual meatloaf. Yes, it is meatball like, but not round! So there, I win. Read on for the recipe. (more…)
I absolutely love Filipino food – it’s so savory and delicious. When I was young, my Lola (grandma) watched me everyday and cooked chicken adobo at least once a week. The smells coming from the kitchen were intoxicating and drew me in – cartoon style, feet floating and nose following the visible aroma. I always look forward to chicken adobo over rice on the kitchen table. These days I’m avoiding rice but the flavors of Filipino adobo are so versatile they can be added to almost anything. In this case, I’ll share with you the wonders of Filipino adobo style bok choy!
I feel like I am forever cooking, especially on Sundays. I’m not complaining – because I love to cook and eat fresh food – but sometimes I exhaust myself looking for something new and yummy to cook. I’m pretty adventurous with my meals and don’t mind trying new things, but my mom is a different story. She’ll usually eat whatever I cook, but the following recipe is one of her favorites. It’s a dressed up version of a classic AND it’s Paleo-friendly. What more could you ask for? (more…)
***edit: I am so sorry everyone but I screwed up and accidentally deleted the pictures to this post. I am going to make this again in the future, and I promise to upload the step-by-step pictures again! Sorry!***
Hello, hello. It’s good to be back. I know my posts have been inconsistent lately, but I am trying to make time to write here, even if it’s only a recipe or two. I miss having too much time on my hands. These days I’m always running, always tired, always late for something. So today I give you a wonderful lunch idea – something quick and simple – something even a picky eater would love!
This is one of my favorite Paleo-friendly finds because its easy, inexpensive, and travels well. (more…)
Happy Monday and more importantly happy Labor Day! To those of you who have to work, I’m sorry. I had those jobs before and frankly, it sucks. Even though I am just hanging around the house today, I am keeping busy by flexing my domestic goddess muscles and prepping lunches for the rest of the week. I usually scour the interwebs to find my next Paleo lunch idea and the following image always inspires awe.
The Paleo lifestyle is difficult to keep up sometimes, especially when you live in a house with people who do not follow any dietary restrictions. Because I am constantly cooking and preparing lunches for the week, I sometimes try to make my mom’s meals Paleo too!
¡Buenos Días! I went to my local farmer’s market last night to pick up a few things and was quite ashamed that I didn’t immediately respond to the cashier in Spanish as she commented on the large size of the apples I was purchasing. I used to be able to think, write, and speak Spanish without a moment’s notice. Now, I’m lucky if I can mutter more than a phrase about how I am out of practice because I have no one to speak it to at home. Quite a crime, actually. In any case, I proceeded to listen to the Spanish station on my way home in the car to make up for my lack of practice. I struggled through the commercials and eventually gave up on my mental translation to call my boyfriend. Ah, such is life I suppose. So in honor of my severely lacking Spanish skills, I give you CARNE ASADA!
Here we are, another weekend gone and another week begins! Here’s a quick and easy recipe with great Asian flavor!
