Caribbean Tofu & Coconut Rice

I only started cooking with tofu in 2017. For the first few months, I only made tofu scramble. Later in the year, I started actually cutting tofu, seasoning it and eating it as a side with dinner or adding it to a sandwich. When I initially started my blog, I wanted to recreate my favorite…

Banh Mi Sandwich

I have no idea what an actual Banh Mi sandwich tastes like but this version is pretty darn good! A traditional Banh Mi sandwich, which is a Vietnamese sandwich, has meat and pickled veggies- none of those are included here. Pickling veggies isn’t something I’ve experimented with yet but plan to soon at some point….

Serotonin also helps you relax and feel less stressed. Zucchini has many benefits on its own, such as potassium, vitamins C and B6. When adding heat , you get even…

Jalapeno, Cashew Queso

Taco Tuesday inspired this recipe! The truth is, it is rare that I have tacos, or some form of tacos, on Tuesday. Am I alone?! No matter what day of the week, this Jalapeno, Cashew Queso is ready for you next taco night! It’s creamy, spicy and tastes like traditional queso. Personally, foods that are…

Spicy Ketchup

I think most people would agree that Ketchup is good on its own. I used to put it on everything-especially as a kid! Fries, eggs, rice, etc. As I got older, and started experimenting with food, I thought to make a more “adult” version. And here it is! This sauce is so versatile and so…
