Spicy Elotes

Our friend Amanda texted yesterday and asked if we had a good street corn recipe. We've never made it before, but I remembered seeing a recipe in one of our cookbooks. I broke it out for her, but realized that we had all the needed ingredients on hand ourselves (key since we're still trying to... Continue Reading →

Chaat Masala Smashed Potatoes

Tonight we made our second recipe from October's cookbook club selection - Indian-ish! Participating in the cookbook club has already expanded our cooking horizons and we've only been doing it for about 6 weeks. The first one this month was Indian-ish Chicken Breasts. We tweaked this recipe a little, but the Indian(ish) flavors are definitely still... Continue Reading →

Roasted Patatas Bravas

If you're anything like me, when eating at a Spanish tapas restaurant you can't pass up the quintessential tapas dish - patatas bravas. These little potatoes are a little spicy and a little tomato-y and just perfect dipped into a classic garlic aioli! We made a super garlicky aioli to go with ours, and it was delicious!...

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

I don't know if you noticed, but we haven't shared too many posts this month so far (although our Sultan Selim Kofte was amazing & you should check it out!). A two-fold problem - we attempted a few recipes that we thought would be "blog-worthy," that just didn't turn out well, so we definitely couldn't... Continue Reading →

Spicy Feta Dip

Ok y'all, I know I say things like this all the time, but... This dip is SO easy to make and SO worth it. Bring this to your next family gathering, book club, or just make it for tomorrow's dinner! It's spicy without being overpowering. And everyone loves feta cheese! On that note, now is... Continue Reading →

Hot Salmon with Pineapple Salsa

When I think about a dinner that screams SUMMER! - for whatever reason, my go-to is fish with a fruit salsa. I don't know about y'all, but I always am more interested in fish in the summer - I can mentally transport myself to the ocean and pretend that fish just got hauled in a... Continue Reading →

Baked Jerk Chicken Wings

So here's what I did for this recipe. I just made it up. Do not look here for authentic ratios of spices in a jerk spice blend. If you have Jamaican friends, send them the other direction - away from my inauthentic blog post! But if you're not super-concerned about authenticity and want to test... Continue Reading →

Slightly Spicy Salmon Cakes

When Selim asked me to make dinner with some salmon tonight, I wanted to try something a little different than our usual. Our usual involves adding spices to a salmon fillet and broiling it. Selim is the master of this process. I am not. So I googled "different way to make salmon." Seriously. This is... Continue Reading →

Caliente Chicken & Zoodles

At this point, you're probably thinking, "Are they zucchini lobbyists like VEEP's Dan Egan?"  Well... that would be a cool job, but we're pretty invested in anesthesia school.  Zoodles aren't too complex to make and are an easy way to get some extra vegetables in your life (never a bad thing).  In terms of flavor,...
