We love Peruvian food. Always have and always will. Growing up in South Florida, you get exposed to a lot of different Latin cultures. It’s a beautiful thing, really. There are restaurants galore offering all types of South American cuisine. Caribbean, too.Read More
I’ll be honest, it’s been a really long time since my family and I order Chinese takeout to be delivered to our house for lunch, or even dinner. It used to be a staple in my mom’s kitchen throughout my childhood. I didn’t necessarily grow up with unhealthy, junk food at my house. There were just those days that my parents would wake up and know for sure that they wanted nothing but a bowl of house special fried rice and honey garlic chicken maybe even Asian BBQ spare ribs to split with the option of an eggroll per person or some crab rangoons to share. The latter is my personal favorite. Super freaking delicious yet super freaking unhealthy!
There is still nothing like a bowl of hot steaming special fried rice to fill a winter tummy. Do you like to order Chinese takeout on days you just do not want to cook at all? Of course, none of these meals are actually anything that you can put the label of “healthy” on; the thing is that Chinese takeout has simply become socially acceptable and heath is not questioned when placing an order for a heart attack in a cardboard box delivered to your front door. How freaking convenient! It’s not to say a traditional Chinese takeout meal can’t be reinvented in a homemade and healthy way for all to enjoy.Read More
So I am almost positive that half of my readers are wondering, “WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?” Remember, I am a native Spanish speaker so I have to throw my two Cuban cents in sometimes, LOL. Anywho…this meal is one that is common for many of the Hispanic cultures when there is nothing to eat OR if we want a quick meal.Read More
In all attempt to make the best brown rice the universe has ever seen and tasted, I have wasted countless bags of brown rice. I gave up at some point early last year because it was never just right. Either it was too mushy or too dry, too burnt or too water–never just right.
I have come to save all you unworthy brown rice waters of the world because I was once just like you. Destroying perfectly good, edible foods to create something that seem unmasterable–I thought that wasn’t a word but I guess it is, autocorrect didn’t insist on changing my grammar this time. I have mastered the inexplicable. The PERFECT brown rice was born last night in my kitchen and is groveling on it’s knees, begging for you to go make some.
