Skillet Potatoes

Weekend breakfast was always a nice family gathering back home when I was growing up. That was when my dad would usually take the cooking reins and whip up a meal for the family. Other than Corned Beef Hash, my dad would love cooking skillet potatoes with scrambled eggs for our weekend breakfast. And like … Continue reading

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

Crisp is one of my favorite lunch delivery spots and I crave their delicious falafel sandwiches all the time at work.  Even though the delivery times can be unbelievably slow, I am always willing to wait that hour for their signature falafel sandwiches, especially the “Crisp Mediterranean” which is served with eggplant, sun-dried tomato spread, … Continue reading

Knife Skills 1 is all about … Continue reading

The only cooking method better than roasting is grilling; however, I don’t have a barbeque grill and our mini Foreman can’t really compare. I already love roasting asparagus, butternut squash fries, … Continue reading
