I am excited to share this healthy and delicious curried soup with asparagus, lentils, potatoes, shrimp topped with crunchy Curry Flavored Kettle chips. Sometimes I have an idea in my head that comes out a success, sometimes it doesn’t. This time the flavors worked and on the rainy day in Portland it was a perfect fix for something hearty and comforting.

While I don’t do Super Bowl Sunday’s or watch football at all, but doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy making good food that can be enjoyed during the game or a game night with friends. These Nachos and Guacamole with pineapples and edible flowers are my new favorites to enjoy and it’s nice because you can use them in so many different ways. Make tacos, burritos, nachos or even a salad bowl. [Read more…] about PORK CARNITAS SKILLET NACHOS with PINEAPPLE GUACAMOLE & EDIBLE FLOWERS
It’s that wonderful time of the year, where friends and family get together and celebrate each other over good food and drink. I am excited to share some of my favorite recipes I created for a Friendsgiving dinner I hosted last week for some creative friends and food bloggers.

It’s monday, a lot of times I sit here, wondering what I want to make for dinner (well every day I do that too, ahhah). Making dinner for me is a way to make my family happy and getting my creative juices flowing. I enjoy feeding them a good and healthy meal, being creative while using some great fresh ingredients. I enjoy the process of stopping by my local Fred Meyers after work, pick up some items I want to make dinner with. I have started working with Fred Meyers in the last couple of weeks and trying to create great recipes to make for dinner and share with my followers.

Steak is what’s for dinner. This is one of my favorite methods of cooking steak lately. Bake low and slow, let it rest and then sear on both sides. If you know how to use an oven, heat up a skillet or a grill… you can make this amazing steak dinner with sides of your choice. I’ve been making steak like this for a while and decided it’s time to share my tips and tricks on making the juiciest and easy foolproof steak. I like to buy Rib eye steak for this, with or without the bone works. Make this for your next dinner party for your guests or for your family to enjoy.

I’m loving these little dessert in a mason jar that I made last night for our after dinner dessert. I love being inspired by spring and all of the abundant produce we are having now at the markets. I stopped by on my way home to one of my favorite fresh markets called Krugers Farm to pick up some produce and got inspired by these beautiful berries and fruits that are available locally now. I’ve never tasted red apricots before until last night… they are sweet and tangy at the same time, which I thought would go so perfect with local strawberries and rhubarb for a cobbler. This recipe is so simple and I thought I would share it, if you wanted to make some for your next party or to enjoy at home. [Read more…] about STRAWBERRY APRICOT RHUBARB COBBLER
This is one of my favorite desserts to make all year round, but especially in the spring and summer time when the berry seasons starts. It’s easy to make. The dough is versatile, and you can use it to make delicious quiches, savory tarts or galettes. You can make the dough ahead of time, and keep in the refrigerator for a few days or freeze it for up to a month. You can use any stone fruit that you like that’s in season, and you can also switch out different preserves. [Read more…] about FRESH FRUIT GALETTE or SAVORY QUICHE
