At the end of my last post, I promised another “Thai” recipe. And yes, I know, tacos are not Thai but just hear me out.
Our first day in Thailand, we were excited to get out and experience the town and eat real Thai food. We walked around searching for the perfect [...]
When we were inThailand, my husband and I gorged on Tom Yum soup. We ate it al almost every Thai restaurant we went to. I have to say, at first it didn’t sound very appetizing to me. Hot and sour….and shrimp? But two bites in, I was hooked! Most times when we ordered it, [...]
Who likes breakfast for dinner??? I do! When I saw a corned beef brisket I knew I was going to make corned beef hash from scratch (one of my breakfast favorites) for dinner. After I spent hours cooking my “corned” beef and the house smelled so good I practically needed a bib [...]
Living abroad in theMiddle Easthas taken us on many adventures. From the cultural to the culinary, we have had so many amazing experiences thus far. While it is fun to try new foods, discover new ingredients and learn different cooking techniques; [...]

I think I was pretty typical college student-dining on a budget. At some point I saw a recipe for peanut noodles using a combination of peanut butter and soy sauce. This became one of my go-to meals. It was cheap, fast, and perfect for late night studying.
When my husband and [...]
When my husband and I first started dating, he promised to make dinner for me one night. He lit up the grill and threw on some steaks, sausages, and chicken. When everything was done, he presented me a Flintstone’s sized pile of meat and said, “Let’s eat.”
My response? “Where [...]
Anyone who knows me well knows that I love Mexican food. My husband will never let me live down the time I cried because my burrito wasn’t made right (I said I wanted extra rice.) To be fair, I was pregnant and very a little hormonal, but I do really love [...]
A friend of mine showed me a farm stand not too far from where we live. I have really come to love going there. The produce is always fresh and is much cheaper than anywhere I’ve found on the island. That’s where I got those oodles of strawberries C decided [...]
