Cranberry, Coconut & Almond Chocolate Bark

It is almost the day to celebrate love. I mean every day we should be celebrating love, but Valentine’s day is the day. In a new relationship, or a long-term relationship, or single. You all deserve chocolate. In this household, we have not fallen off the new year’s resolutions wagon yet (a new record for…

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps and Peanut Sauce

A little over 9 years ago, I was in Vietnam. I was never a HUGE fan of Vietnamese food, but after that trip, I LOVE Vietnamese food. And not just pho, but spring rolls, salad rolls, banh mi sandwiches, lemon grass anything and the list can go on and on. Over the past few years,…

Creamy Mushroom, Ham and Bean Pasta

Christmas was three days ago and does anyone else’s fridge look like a Tupperware party full of food.  This year, we had two full Christmas dinners and one night of appetizers. You can say I have eaten way too much, but I don’t want any of the leftovers to go to waste.     This…

Turkey Noodle Soup

This Christmas has been pretty great. Not only has it been the first time in many, many years that I have actually had Christmas Eve, Christmas day and Boxing Day off. But pretty much my entire direct family was in town, so that was pretty cool seeing everyone so close to Christmas. But now that…

Just In Time For Christmas- Amaretto Pudding

HELLO!!! I am back from my three months hiatus from my cooking blog. WOW, what a whirlwind of the three months it has been. Honestly, I haven’t had time to reflect yet, but it was a roller coaster of a ride, and I came out of it feeling like I can conquer anything. I learned…
