Steak au Poivre is a French dish that consists of a steak coated with cracked peppercorns, drizzled with a nice gravy. The name alone sounds fancier than anything I’ve ever cooked, but I’ll tell you that it’s pretty straight forward. And damn is it delicious. I don’t usually make gravy with the drippings from my […]

Since we’re entering fall, I’m going to continue my trend and share another one of my favorite soups- the split pea.  I know, for some people it doesn’t look so pretty, but in 2017 green is the new black, and split pea soup is downright DELICIOUS!  It’s the perfect fall soup to cozy on up […]

Soup is one of the greatest gifts to the food world, in my humble opinion.  When I was a little girl, if you asked me what my favorite restaurant was, I’d eagerly tell you “Soup Plantation.” Soup Plantation, now Sweet Tomatoes, was one of the most lovely buffets that my young self ever set eyes […]

Hi guys! It’s been a little while since I posted last, but I’ve still be cooking in the meantime.  Recently, I’ve been craving Ramen noodles, so I looked up some recipes on Pinterest for inspiration on how to make them my own.  Jaden from Steamy Kitchen had a great pressure cooker recipe for me to […]

Not too bad considering I’ve only taken 5 Spanish courses between high school and college, have a Rosetta Stone subscription, AND am Puerto Rican, right…? Looks like I need to […]

Oh. My. Goodness. OMG! These honey-garlic cauliflower bites are fantastic, and oh-so versatile! They can be used as an appetizer, a main course, a snack, the cure to happiness; seriously, anything! Because I’m clearly obsessed with food, I always have recipe videos popping up on my Facebook feed and I just had to try this […]

Hi, guys! If there’s one thing you’re going to learn about me, it’s that I don’t like to spend a whole lot of time cooking after I come home from work. I mean, who does, right? The dilemma then comes up: Do I spend $30 on take-out that’s going to cause my waistline to expand, […]

During the last 20 minutes of each work day, I’m usually thinking up a dish that I can whip up quickly for dinner when I get home. Last night I knew I had some chicken breast in the freezer and was about stop by Publix on the way home from work to pick up some […]
