Pad Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

Pad Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

I’m all for spicing things up and a sad ol’ coleslaw was in desperate need of some sprucing! This pad thai veggie slaw is similar to your traditional coleslaw with shredded carrots and cabbage but instead of a lifeless watered-down mayo dressing, I’ve added a […]

Bean Stuffed Entomatadas

Bean Stuffed Entomatadas

All Mexican food is essentially the same four ingredients rearranged and called something different. Quesadilla? Tortilla, cheese, salsa. Tacos? Tortilla, meat, salsa. Tostada? Fried tortilla, meat, salsa. Essentially they are all the same thing. But despite it’s simplicity, one of my favorite Mexican breakfasts is entomatadas.

Easy Mexican Ceviche

Easy Mexican Ceviche

I can easily say that ceviche is probably one of my FAVORITE Mexican foods ever. It’s so delicious and healthy, I could eat it every day!

Now that the weather is starting to get a little warmer, I have less and less desire to actually cook something in my house. It’s already hot outside, and then to have to use the stove or oven…I might as well just be standing over a fire. It’s too hot! (more…)

30 Minute Whole Wheat Thai Pizza

30 Minute Whole Wheat Thai Pizza

My name is Shannon and pizza is my guilty pleasure. (Hi Shannon!) …Okay it’s not an addiction, but if I could make pizza a little healthier I’d probably be going to addict meetings all the time. As you may know, I’m a hardcore fan of […]

Samosa Twice Baked Potatoes

Samosa Twice Baked Potatoes

After living in Mexico for four years I’ve come pretty accustomed to spicy foods. I’ve built up a tolerance and can handle some heat. But in Washington there are many other foods that have a different kind of spice. Because its just a hop across […]

Put-On-Everything Chipotle Salsa

Put-On-Everything Chipotle Salsa

If you know me or have read my blog before you know that my husband is Mexican and we live in Mexico. Mexican food is very different from American but oh so good! And if you’ve had authentic Mexican food you know that they put salsa on EVERYTHING.  (more…)

20 Minute Peanut Noodles

20 Minute Peanut Noodles

One of the reasons I’ve always liked cooking and eating delicious food (apart from it just being super delicious) is that certain foods bring back a sense of nostalgia. You know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about those secret family recipes, those foods that […]

Fireball Pork Chop with Mango Salsa

Fireball Pork Chop with Mango Salsa

When I moved to Mexico I was preparing for a bunch of new experiences. New city, new job, new food. But I never thought of all the things that Mexico didn’t have, and one of those is Fireball. Yes, Fireball the alcohol. Mexico has plenty […]

Mexican Chicken Pozole

Mexican Chicken Pozole

If you know me then you know that I live in Oaxaca, Mexico and have been for about the past four years. You would also know that my husband is Mexican, Oaxacan, Ismenan.  He comes from the heart of Oaxaca where an old traditional culture is still very present. It’s not out of the ordinary to hear someone bartering in zapotec, a native  language, wearing a huipil and enagua, their traditional dress.   (more…)

Salsa Verde Veggie Enchiladas

Salsa Verde Veggie Enchiladas

After living in Mexico for about four years now, I’ve built up a somewhat decent tolerance to spicy foods. But this doesn’t just magically happen. Just like anything that you want to improve, it requires hard work and dedication. I can’t count how many tacos […]
