Creamy 2 Minute Dairy-Free Ranch

After living Mexico for four years, somehow I’m still not immune to cravings for American foods. You can take the girl out of Washington but you can’t take the Washington out of the girl! One of my favorite snacks is ranch and veggies. Mexico is […]

Crispy Baked Potato Taquitos

Crispy Baked Potato Taquitos

In case you are not aware, potatoes are vegetables. But for some reason they get a bad rap for being so fattening and one of the worst things you could eat. Starchy vegetables are delicious and nutritious.  I wanted to focus on these misunderstood veggies […]

Sundried Tomato Garlic Alfredo Sauce (Dairy-Free!!)

Along with sushi and pickles, I’m also a pasta lover. And if you know me this should not come as a surprise to you. I pretty much just love food in general, pasta included. If using whole grain noodles, pasta can actually be pretty healthy; however some of my favorite sauces are not.

Or maybe it’s because of how versatile they are and you can make so many delicious foods with them. Who knows?

How to Make Yummy Ramen at Home

One of the things that I miss most from Washington is the FOOD!! I’m lucky to have come from a place with such diverse cuisine because of it’s diverse population. One of my favorite comfort foods  is pho. Scolding hot, filled with Sriracha and hoisen sauce, pho.  (more…)
