A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious!
I was chatting with some blogger friends recently and the concept of “finding your blog’s niche” arose. If you find the right tiny corner of the internet and post just in one category, your blog is supposed to grow. It seems “everything I think tastes good” – my answer – isn’t a niche. Oh well. (more…)
It’s time for another episode of “Things that Make Us Smile”! In this one, we’ll talk about mini foods, and Asian Tuna Sliders, because both definitely make us smile. Finger foods are always a favorite for parties and people with hands of all sizes. They’re fun in the way foods on a stick are fun, and mini sandwiches are very very fun. Asian tuna sliders will make us smile because I know that you, like me, love Asian flavors and tuna together. There’s a reason my Spicy Tuna Wraps are one of my top 5 recipes on this site, darlings.

Perfect for an easy, balanced meal, these chopped chicken rice bowls with a tasty curry mustard sauce are always a hit at mealtime!
When the Godfather and I were undergrads at the university, there was a place near campus that was famous for it’s chopped chicken bowls and pita sandwiches. We ate there a few times, liked the food, and filed away the “healthy chicken rice bowl” idea for after we were married and had a place together. Rice bowls were a good compromise for us at the time. I liked a lot of variety and veggies and salads, and his main food groups were: coffee, rice/bread, meat, and coffee. Since rice bowls have two of the four food groups, I could sneak in veggies and a sauce so everyone was happy. Since we were both planning to work and pursue graduate studies, we were also looking for easy meal ideas. (more…)
Let’s start the week with a little real talk, shall we? As a full-time blogger, I am a work at home mother. This means that while I have my office at home and can (in theory) work whenever I’d like and still be present for all things domestic, I’m actually constantly juggling the duties and expectations of being a “stay at home mom” with the realities of running an active and growing blog. It’s hectic and all coordinated via a paper planner, but I definitely find myself feeling the rush around dinner time. (more…)
Easy to make with just a few ingredients, this crazy feta dip copycat recipe is inspired by a local to us quick service chain restaurant, CAVA Grill.
About a year or so ago, a local blogger friend of mine, Sarah from Capital Moms, was hosting a blogger event to celebrate the opening of a local restaurant’s new location. I decided to attend and totally fell in love with the place. Cava Grill is a local chain that serves Mediterranean food in the “walk through a line and pick your base/protein/toppings” format so popular nowadays. The Godfather and I like it, and we’ve been to several locations since that initial event, because it’s good food. The nearest location is about 20 minutes away in decent traffic though. So naturally, I took some inspiration from their menu, and I replicated their crazy feta dip and make my own crazy feta dip copycat recipe. (more…)
