TumblrEmailOther Share Options

I’ve made these scones in several different variations, all with tasty results. They are inspired, once again, from one of my favorite cookbooks, A Homemade Life. You can try lemon raspberry, whole wheat flour and mixed berry, ginger apricot, or even chocolate chip! Scones are hard to mess up. Just add roughly half a cup […]

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash

I first had Chicken Paprikash when a chef I was working for made it for the kitchen’s family meal. It was such an easy process and it becomes this really feel-good meal. I tend to forget about how simple and delicious this recipe is—this is my first time making it in over two years—but once […]

Simply Citrus & Avocado Salad

Simply Citrus & Avocado Salad

The following is hardly a recipe—it’s so easy to throw together. This would actually be more of a winter salad in California, since oranges are in season in January, so I’m cheating on the seasonal thing a bit here…But it’s certainly tasty on a warm summer evening. Ingredients: 2 medium navel oranges 2 large, ripe […]

Fig Jam

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Giant tubs of tri-flavored popcorn: I always avoided the cheese (even though I liked it) and the butter flavor and dove right into the caramel section. I was addicted. Still am. I had to leave this batch in another room to avoid finishing it all. This is my version of that delicious caramel popcorn, but […]

Nesian Quinoa Bowl

Nesian Quinoa Bowl

I blame a lot of things on my Polynesian roots, and one of them is my undying love of eating. This is a blessing and a curse. I swear, a Sunday in my home in Suva was filled with an hour of church service followed by ten hours of constant grazing. And we never had […]

Mexican Street Salad

Mexican Street Salad

Everywhere you turn these days there is a taco stand, a taco bar, a taco restaurant or a taco truck. And I am not complaining—bring on the tacos!! But one of my favorite things to order at these taco joints is the Mexican street corn on the cob. It is this delicious combo of mayo, […]
