Southwest Meatball Skillet

Ugh, pretty sure I have senioritis.   Is that even possible to have in grad school?  I’m just done. I don’t know; I’m simply dreading the new class that’s starting on April 30th.  It’s funny, one month of only taking one class instead of two and I’m completely spoiled! But anyway, let’s talk food.  I’m pretty sure my love of Southwestern/Mexican ... Read More »

Cheesy Quesadillas with Roasted Tomato Soup

A bowl of roasted tomato soup with cheese quesadillas

It’s soup season! I’ll be posting a lot of soups/stews in the coming months and I figured I’d kick off the season with a basic – tomato soup. More specifically – this Roasted Tomato Soup and Cheesy Vegetable Quesadillas because what goes better with tomato soup but cheese?

I’ll admit, I do enjoy Mexican inspired dishes but I can’t ... Read More »

  I think I finally succeeded at an Indian dish! Let me bask in this moment… Basking… Basking… Still basking… Yay again! I love Indian food but cooking it has always eluded me.  I’ve tried three or four different dishes following complete recipes I’ve found through Indian cookbooks and it’s just never worked.  And I don’t think it’s from lack of spices ...

Fish Tostadas with Guacamole

Tostadas topped with cheese, fish poached in salsa and guacamole

  Ok I’ll admit it, I’m in a complete fish meal idea rut.  I’m fighting it tooth and nail but I definitely need to get some new inspiration. Here’s the deal: my husband (the fish hater) loves fish tacos so I tend to default back to tacos because I know he’ll like and eat them. But since starting this blog I’ve been ... Read More »
