It is Sunday night while I write this. After spending almost an hour pondering my dinner for the night, I finally settled on shrimp and noodles. Hopefully, on Monday night it would be easier to decide on a meal. I am leaning towards a simple lemony spaghetti with thyme.Continue Reading “Lemony Spaghetti with Thyme”
I am the queen of making of a quick jar of jam. This quick peach rhubarb jam is one of my farewell love letters to the rhubarb season.
This summer is my first summer cooking with rhubarb. It has been a gorgeous love affair, making mostly jams. Finally realized that I wasn’t going to get the good stuff at the store anymore so I am quitting for the season.Continue Reading “Quick Peach Rhubarb Jam”

My brain works in two ways when it comes to Youtube channels; I am either obsessed or I am bored. There is no middle ground for me. The first time I saw Marion’s Kitchen on Youtube, the obsession kicked in. I knew I was going to make some of her recipes. I finally followed through and made this Thai Basil Fried Rice.Continue Reading “Thai Basil Fried Rice”
I know Labor Day is still almost three weeks away but I feel like summer is slipping away already. Maybe it is because my real life is knocking on the door. My nursing school uniform arrived the other day. While I am excited to get going on the nursing phase of my life, I am still enjoying summer meals like a simple tomato salad.Continue Reading “Ultimate Tomato Salad”

July was miserable. There is no other way to put it. It was hot. It was humid. And it was mostly intolerable.
The only thing that made it all better was the glut of fruits and vegetables that was available at the markets. From the deep red colors of the ripe strawberries to the orange flush on peaches, it was all so gorgeous. Really, it was all I could eat. I found myself reaching for fruits to cool me down because I got tired of sipping water.Continue Reading “Tiny Tomatoes”
A few years ago when I worked in retail, I developed a taste for a bagel and cream cheese. I have Bruegger’s to thank because it was on my path to work. Whenever I had an early morning opening shift, I would stop by to get a bagel for breakfast. The sesame bagel, toasted and slathered with cream cheese, was my go-to order. The roasted strawberry cream cheese was born of that memory.Continue Reading “Roasted Strawberry Cream Cheese”
Yesterday, I went grocery shopping with Bee, the mother of my godson. And she said she had to buy Nigerian bread. So, even though we had nothing to buy at the African food store, two adult women and an almost two-year-old toddler drove to there. After so much effort, the bread was out of stock. Maybe we should have spent the time making Hokkaido milk bread instead.Continue Reading “Hokkaido Milk Bread”
