I’m currently under a million blankets watching Little Women and shopping online since I’m the worst holiday shopper in the world.
This Kabocha pumpkin and cream cheese salad is a delicious side dish for a holiday meal. Although it only has four ingredients and comes together in about ten minutes, its stunning hue and make-ahead nature, make it perfect for any potlucks you have coming up.
Is there anything better than a frozen thin mint? I think not! They’re divine. We’re months away from being able to buy them in front of Girl Scouts but why not bake a batch up for the holidays. Their minty chocolate flavor profile is perfect for this time of year.
This classic Japanese rice dish made with seasoned ground chicken over rice is a popular lunch for all ages, and it’s often used in bento box lunches found in train stations around Japan. For me, it’s an indispensible weekday meal because it’s quick, flavorful and satisfying.
Every year I make truffles. I think it’s one of simplest desserts to make for a party and they’re always the first to go! I usually make them with melted dark chocolate and I like to mix in a bit of instant espresso powder to give them a hint of coffee. Coffee and chocolate is such a good combo, isn’t it?
If you like orange chicken, you’re gonna love this orange-spice braised pork belly! Melt-in-your-mouth tender and glazed with a sweet and savory sauce, you’ll be tempted to eat the whole batch straight out of the pot.
The best part of Thanksgiving. Every year a leftover Thanksgiving day sandwich is a must. I pile it high with cranberry sauce and gravy and turkey and sometimes if I’m feeling wild I’ll put some stuffing inside, too.
No matter where you are in the world, it’s likely there’s a native rice dish with a golden hue. In Latin America it’s known as Arroz Amarillo, in India as Kesar Chawal, and Indonesia as Nasi Kuning.
