Mashed Beets

My love for beets continues on strong as I look for new and fun recipes to cook. And I thought, since beets are a root vegetable like potatoes, why not make a mashed beet? Beets provide such a rich and delicious flavor but tend to be denser than potatoes leading to a course texture for the final dish. But the mash has melt in the mouth like qualities and is absolutely delightful with its rich flavor and buttery goodness. Continue Reading →

Homemade Fish Sticks

I am always excited to try my hand out cooking new fishes and trying new dishes. When I saw Mahi-Mahi at my local grocery store, I immediately thought about using it to make fish sticks. It wasn’t a recipe that was normally within my wheelhouse but after doing some searches on the internet, I was able to cobble together my own recipe! I’m starting to suspect that all of my food has a slight Indian flavor to it. Absolutely no idea why. Nope. None at all. Continue Reading →

Fluffy Pancakes

There is a strange divide between people who like pancakes and people who like waffles. And then there are people like me. Floating in the middle because the taste feels so different even if the batter seems close to the same. One of the biggest perks from Pancakes is that they don’t require any special kitchen tools to make, all you need is a pan, a bowl and a whisk! And whipping up fluffy pancakes is only a few steps away. Continue Reading →

Spice Rubbed Tinfoil Salmon

I will say, as a pescatarian, fish is one of the only meats that I cook and I've always been a bit hesitant to approach this one. I feel like fish is one of those things to either easily overcook or undercook and it's hard to get the fish just right. Salmon is one in particular that I had a hard time making. There was no perfect recipe that made the Salmon dish just right especially since I have been a little less keen on Salmon as of late. But then I remembered cooking with Tinfoil and my mind began to race to make a spice rubbed tinfoil Salmon. Continue Reading →

Homemade Onigiri

Japanese Rice Balls nestled their way into my heart several years ago during my trip to Japan. As we were exploring Tokyo, it was always easy to satiate my hunger by popping into a convenience store and grabbing an Onigiri or two. And since I've come back to the US, I have missed the flavor and taste. So my hunt began to start making them myself so I could always have one of my favorite foods. While I know there are many possibilities for Onigiri from varying the type of rice to the fillings used, I will focus more on the fillings. But when it comes to Onigiri, the possibilities do feel endless! Continue Reading →

Oops! All Spices: Egg Curry

I grew up eating curry in my house hold. There were many nights I would come home after working to the smell of Indian food radiating from the house. So when I left home, I took some of the recipes with me. And this week, I was craving curry. But the kitchen didn't want to support me. Or rather myself from last week didn't want to support me and didn't buy the ingredients ahead of time. But I was determined to make curry. So only with a few eggs, a can of tomatoes and a handful of spices I set out with the experiment to make a delicious curry. Continue Reading →

Sweet Waffles

I used to be a pancake girl until I met my partner. Now, I'm completely in love with making waffles. We went through several recipes before we found a favorite. I was honestly surprised by the different variations of waffles exist, generally around the eggs. I saw some with separated eggs, whisked egg whites, whole eggs, etc. The list goes on for a while. So we ate quite a bit before getting it right. Continue Reading →

Easy Homemade Sushi

Sushi is one of my easy go to dishes when I don't know what to eat. There is very little cooking involved and there are many combos for fillings. The main ingredients needed for sushi are rice, seaweed paper, and vinegar (I use white wine vinegar). For this roll, I used avocado, imitation crab and cucumber. My rule of 3 for sushi is 1 protein, something crunchy and something creamy. Continue Reading →
