Creamy White Bean Pasta

An improvised dish that turned out REALLY good. I was craving mac ‘n cheese so bad, but ended up with this much “lighter” version of a creamy pasta dish, and it deserves a spot in the archive. It’s got the 3 C’s: convenient, creamy, and cheap. What’s not to like?…

Pad Thai with Chicken

Pad Thai is definitely one of the favorites in our home. I have never visited Thailand, but every time I’m making this dish I remember being amazed by an episode of ‘Somebody Feed Phil’ where he enjoyed a big bowl of real Pad Thai at the Khlong Lat Mayom Floating…

Peking Chicken Cabbage Rolls

What’s better than delicious AND beautiful foods? Really, nothing can come to my mind. These colorful cabbage rolls are a perfect choice when you crave some salt and crunch. I admit, these are very inspired by a danish cookbook I own called ‘Super Healthy Superfoods’. I changed a filling a…

Hey all seafood-lovers! I have something amazing to share with you today. This recipe for simple bouillabaisse (or seafood soup) is so good I promise you’ll be hearing angels singing with every spoonful. Every bite is a flavor bomb that will take you directly to the south of France overlooking…

Chinese Cucumber Salad

This salad is obligatory for me whenever I cook Chinese food. Salty, spicy, garlicky, and umami taste combined with fresh cucumber is just pure enjoyment. I tried this salad (which by the way has the longest name for a salad: Liang ban hua gua) on my first day visiting China, and…

Vegetarian Beef Bourguignon

Eight months ago, my husband made the choice to exclude red meat from his diet. It is important for us to eat the same thing, and not have to cook two different versions for the same dinner. When you can’t cook beef, lamb, pork, or the like you have to…

Easy Falafel Recipe

Who would say no to meat-free Monday if there’s falafel on the menu? I know I wouldn’t! This recipe is very easy and quick when you have soaked the chickpeas. I like my falafels to be crispy on the outside and kind of solid on the inside – I don’t…

Broccoli Buns

The first time I made broccoli buns were in a search for buns without yeast, as the store was out and I was craving homemade bread. Struggles! I’ve tried different recipes, and this one is my go-to now. These are more filling than most of the other versions out there…

Mexican Salsa Roja

I have many favorite kitchens, but the Mexican is definitely always one of my top choices. What’s better than a juicy taco dripping of goodness, soaked in amazing, spicy salsa? To me, the best kind of Mexican food experience is the one that includes several homemade salsas on the table.…

The Best Salad with Orange

Need a good salad-fix? I’ve got you covered! After moving to Spain, oranges have become a stable go-to in salads. The inspiration for this salad came from my favorite vineyard in Catalunya, which I will soon post about. Heaven on earth, I tell you. Back on track. The day before…
