Grits Sunny Side Up

Grits!? what is that? Being born and raised in Massachusetts, grits isn’t exactly a common thing, which lead me to thinking of where it came from. It turns out that grits origins came from American Indian corn preparation. Additionally, three-quarters of grits sold in the U.S. are predominantly from the South, stretching from Texas to Virginia. GritsContinue reading “Grits Sunny Side Up”

Sausage Fettuccine

While pasta is culturally associated with Italy, it is said that the idea came from ancient Asian noodles. A common belief is that it was brought to Italy from China by Marco Polo during the 13th century. Regardless of where it came from, pasta is one of my favorite foods to indulge in. Let us not forgetContinue reading “Sausage Fettuccine”

Teriyaki Flank Steak

I‘ve taken a new fitness journey and have decided to consume only brown rice instead of the traditional white rice that I grew up eating. For dinner tonight, I decided to pair my brown rice with some delicious teriyaki flank steak. I don’t eat a lot of redmeat, but I crave it from time toContinue reading “Teriyaki Flank Steak”

Dragon Fruit

Dragon fruit is native to Central America but is also grown and exported from several Southeast Asian countries, like Thailand. Taken from several cactus species, its luscious stem provides a uniquely delicious fruit. The flavor is slightly sweet, like a blend of kiwi and apple with crunchy texture. If you’ve never seen it before, it ofContinue reading “Dragon Fruit”

Based on the many horrible foods that we probably shouldn’t be consuming, I have made an effort to introduce healthier substitutes for the foods that I do love. One being PASTA! So walking through Wholefoods, I came across beet noodles and squash noodles. I couldn’t make up my mind on which I wanted, so IContinue reading “Beets and Squash Avocado Alfredo”

Tatcha

So I love trying out new products! A new one that I came across that I have been using is by Tatcha ! My first impression was “how the heck is a powder going to get my face clean?” Well folks, I was wrong. This powder turns into a creamy foam that cleanses and makes my faceContinue reading “Tatcha”

Shrimp Rangoon

I love Crab Rangoon! It’s usually apart of my order when I get Chinese take-out. On some menu’s they are called crab puffs and on others cheese wontons. Based on who is eating them, they can be served with soy sauce, plum sauce, duck sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or mustard for dipping. I serveContinue reading “Shrimp Rangoon”

Squash Cauliflower Soup

  Last night, I was craving comfort food. When I think of comfort food, I often think of soup! Something warm, creamy, that cooks fast but still has a component of fresh veggies and savory meat involved. So I decided to make Squash Cauliflower Soup with Braised Short Rib.   Squash Cauliflower Soup Heat oliveContinue reading “Squash Cauliflower Soup”

Bucket List

With all the obligations that we all have on the day-to-day basis, it is essential that we make time for the things that make us happy. Doing things that we enjoy often gets placed on the back burner. You then blink and 10 years has passed and you still haven’t accomplished anything you wanted. OneContinue reading “Bucket List”
