Maine Brown Butter Lobster Roll

Maine Brown Butter Lobster Roll

It’s that time of year again here in Maine, where lobster is here, there, and everywhere. Lobster rolls especially. There are two ways Maine locals dress their lobster rolls: with a coating of mayonnaise or the latter, with a touch of melted butter. In fact, there’s a great debate across the state on how acontinue reading

Thai Marinated Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Skewers

Thai Marinated Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Skewers

I don’t know about you, but I kind of have a thing for grilled skewers. Meat on a stick, vegetables on a stick, fruits on a stick—whatever it may be, I’m there. What makes them wonderful is that they don’t usually require much time to cook, they’re (way) too easy to eat, and their flavorcontinue reading

Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake Bars

Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake Bars

As human beings, we live our lives in hopes to find “the one” someday—the one who we’re meant to be with.

Okay… I might have gotten a little carried away making this Hot Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Grilled Cheese. There’s just something about grilled cheese that’s so unforgettable.

Apple Cinnamon Focaccia

Apple Cinnamon Focaccia

What if I told you that focaccia doesn’t have to include just herbs and cheese? What if there’s a “dessert” focaccia? **Mind blown.** And why haven’t I thought of making this before? I came across “dessert” focaccia during an accidental visit to Eataly Boston a few weeks ago. By accidental, I mean, taking a casualcontinue reading

Thai Stir-Fried Chicken with Basil (Gai Pad Krapow)

I’m sharing one of my go-to Thai street food dishes: Thai Stir-Fried Chicken with Basil or Gai Pad Krapow. With Spring finally here and the days getting warmer, I can’t help but to spend more time outside and spend less time in the kitchen. This dish is literally a no-brainer!

I’ve been purchasing these little bags of brownie brittle lately during my trips to the grocery store. They seem to mysteriously jump into my cart – I can’t help it.continue reading
