I have to say, I was a bit conflicted on what to title this post (and recipe.) I mean, yes, it’s mac and cheese. However, queso is Spanish for cheese, right? Maybe the name is a bit redundant, even if by queso I’m referring to the cheesy dip stuff. And then I didn’t [...]
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; [...]
Why the name, you ask? Well, because this quinoa salad is a party in your mouth, duh.
Wait, did I really just type that? Yes, yes I did; but I will blame it on lingering delirium from a weekend in the sun in triple digit temperatures. You see, we spent part of [...]

To be honest, I’ve been so busy playing catch up that we’ve been ordering delivery from our favorite kabob place more than I’ve been cooking. But better late than never, right? I’m going to keep this post short [...]
I’ve mentioned before that when my husband has to be away for work, I usually take the opportunity to try a recipe I know he probably wouldn’t want to eat and watch movies he probably wouldn’t want to watch. Well this last time my husband was away for the evening, I wanted to make [...]
