Beer Brined Barbecue Chicken

Summer isn’t giving up without a fight this year. It’s been hot and humid in DC for the past week — hotter than it was for most of the Summer. I really don’t mind though, since it gives me an excuse to sneak in a few more Summer recipes. I’m kicking myself I waited soContinue Reading

Caprese Pasta

Caprese Pasta

I sound like a broken record: this week has been crazy. In my real life, I own a graphic design shop. It’s small — just me and the dog — but it’s successful and very busy right now. I haven’t had a day in the office all week long. It’s completely thrown off my regularContinue Reading

Blackened Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa

Running your own business has its benefits: I can take time off whenever I want. I can work from wherever I want. I can decide what projects to work on and who to work with. The big downside? It’s feast or famine. Last week, I spent more time twiddling my thumbs than I did working.Continue Reading

Steak and Poblano Tacos

Steak and Poblano Tacos

I probably should have just declared this as taco week, since this the second taco recipe I’m blogging about this week. I’m the kind of person who can’t eat the same thing more than one night in a row. Tacos is the exception. There are so many choices in fillings and proteins, every taco isContinue Reading

Grilled Vegetable Tacos

Besides early season pickling cucumbers, tomato season is my most anticipated. I religiously taste the tomato samples put out by each vendor, waiting to find the one with tomatoesContinue Reading

Five for Friday: Five Books for Summer

T.G.I.F. This post-holiday/travel week got the best of me. Friday could not come fast enough. M is working on Saturday (boo) so assuming the weather is nice, I plan on grabbing a book and hitting the pool. I’ll try and channel what I did all day on our honeymoon — wake up, grab book, goContinue Reading

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Vietnamese Noodle Bowls (Part 2)

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Vietnamese Noodle Bowls (Part 2)

Six pounds of pork shoulder yields a lot of lemongrass pork. Luckily, it’s easy to transform the pork into a delicious noodle bowl with Vietnamese inspired ingredients. It also doubled as a pantry clean out recipe since I was able to get Asian noodles and carrots out of the fridge as well as some peanutsContinue Reading

Fiesta Chickpea Salad

Fiesta Chickpea Salad

I am once again joining Good Cheap Eats for a pantry clean-out challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to use up your stockpile of freezer and pantry items. For M and I, it’s not practical to think we can live only off what we have in the freezer and in the pantry — weContinue Reading
