Pinterest Review: Copycat Fruit Rollups

Pinterest Review: Copycat Fruit Rollups

When I was a kid, I loved fruit rollups! In fact, I can’t think of a kid who didn’t like them. Now that I’m older and know what exactly is on the ingredient list, I’m not so thrilled. I’ve moved on to fruit gummy snacks, but those still aren’t that great for you. That’s why I was excited to come across some recipes for copycat fruit rollups! I found one from Just a Taste for Continue Reading →

Indian Spiced Quinoa Salad

Indian Spiced Quinoa Salad

I love playing around with flavors in the kitchen when I’m in the mood for something new and different. Recently, I was inspired to make a quinoa salad crossed with a yogurt-based Indian side dish called raita. I really like how it turned out. This Indian spiced quinoa salad is a really filling meal and a great accompaniment to spicy food. Its also pretty straight-forward to make. This recipe has a really mild flavor because Continue Reading →

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala

I’ve shared with you before that my husband and I eat a lot of Indian food! So I’m excited to share with you a real staple dish called Chicken Tikka Masala. If you go to any Indian restaurant, you are almost guaranteed to find this dish on the menu. My mother in law, who is a wonderful cook, once told me that the best way to judge if an Indian restaurant is any good is Continue Reading →

Portuguese Octopus Rice

Portuguese Octopus Rice

Its been a while since I’ve shared one of my own recipes. The last ones were my recipes for Microwave Halloween Fudge and Coconut Chicken Curry. My new recipe is definitely different and a bit out there for most people as its a recipe for Portuguese Octopus Rice! I know cooking octopus is probably a big leap for a lot of you and it was for me until recently. Before I moved to Switzerland, the Continue Reading →

Coconut Chicken Curry

Coconut Chicken Curry

My husband and I cook a lot of Indian food and curries and one of our favorite bases for curry is coconut milk. This recipe is actually quite similar to my haddock in a coconut curry sauce recipe which I posted several months back. You’ll notice in the ingredients that I specify using anywhere between 2 and 4 chicken breasts. This is because I’ve made it both ways and liked the results. Meat is way Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Grilled Curry Carrots

Pinterest Review Grilled Curry Carrots

I know this is another grilling recipe right on the heels of my Pinterest Review of Grilled Herb Mustard Chicken, but we really are trying to get the most out of the last days of grilling season. The weather here has been really kind of yucky lately with lots of rain and clouds, but sometimes it just seems better at the end of the day if we grill something for dinner. So, I was searching Continue Reading →

It was looking for new grilling recipes that I found this pin for grilled cauliflower steaks from Girl Cooks Food.

Grilled Camembert

Grilled Camembert Cheese

I really love cheese and I eat pretty much every type of cheese there is. This was just one of the many reasons I love living in Switzerland; we have so many more cheeses to choose from, even in just a regular grocery store never mind a fancy cheese store. Lately, I’ve been seeing so many delicious recipes for grilled brie that I got a craving for it. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any brie in Continue Reading →

Herb Risotto

Herb Risotto

I really love risotto, but I had heard it was really difficult to cook and so I put off giving it a try for quite a while. It’s really not that difficult, but it does need constant attention. The first couple times I made it, dinner took twice as long to prepare because I spent my time minding the risotto separately from cooking everything else. After cooking it 2 or 3 times, however, I felt Continue Reading →
