The simple dressing is a blend of lime juice, Thai fish sauce, sugar, […]

On Tuesday, I made this simplified Singapore ‘Popiah’ or fresh spring rolls. It seemed appropriate for a 90 degree day.
Happy New Year! If you’re trying to be mindful about , here’s a light and easy fish recipe that’s a plateful of nutrition. We like to pair this Olive Caper Fish with Spinach Raisin Rice for a pop of color and texture.
We finally got some ‘winter’ in Los Angeles. After a summery Fall, we’re finally entering a cooler spell. I made a rotisserie chicken and wild mushroom risotto! Creamy, creamy risotto; the epitome of Italian home cooking and comfort food.
This is our favorite heart healthy, fiber rich, protein packed one-dish-dinner. There’s chicken for protein, black beans for fiber, sweet potatoes for beta carotene…. tomatoes, onions, lime, cilantro for their vitamin packed properties.
