Sometimes, I get so in the mood when I'm cooking, I forget to put ingredients into a dish. Thankfully it's never happened with something essential to a recipe, like baking soda in a cake or eggs in a meatloaf...but I do have this tendency to leave out benign ingredients like garnishes or herbs.

There are very few meals that I make more than once. It's not that I don't like what I'm making, it's just that I'm constantly having to make new things so I can blog about it.

I also made matters worse by busting out the grill pan and grilling up some bratwurst for lunch. The grill pan and brats produced a lot of smoke; I… Continue reading Thai Almond Zoodle Bowl
If you haven't noticed by now, I'm slightly obsessed with "bowl" meals. They just makes sense to me.

Shrimp bowls with ranch… Continue reading Korean Turkey Bowls
