Spicy Asian Shrimp Naan Pizzas

The first time I was introduced to naan pizza, was at a little cafe in Kobe, Japan. I remember being a bit skeptical when I saw curry chicken naan pizza on the menu, but decided to be adventurous and give it a try. I quickly realized that I was totally overanalyzing things, since naan bread […]

Chicken Fajita Nachos

I honestly cannot take credit for this idea. I wanted to make chicken fajitas for dinner, but my daughter insisted that we have chicken fajita nachos. She said plan fajitas were boring, and fajitas nachos sounded more fun to eat. So after going back and forth with her regarding why we should have one over […]

Homemade Chicken Nuggets in Lunchbots Duo

Chicken nuggets seem to be a staple on many restaurant menus. I don’t mind my kids ordering chicken nuggets from certain restaurants, but I prefer making them myself.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

I know I’ve shared this with you before, but I used to live in Kobe, Japan. On a man-made island called Rokko Island, to be exact. I loved it there. I often find myself reminiscing about my former life there. It was such a simple life. A really good life. A life that I’m thankful […]

I seriously cannot believe summer is over.  After almost 3 months of non-stop togetherness, my girls have gone back to school.  They are both excited about entering the 4th and 6th grade, and I am excited them flourish this school year.

Tuna fish salad is a staple in my house.  I eat it on bread, with crackers, or on a bed of lettuce.  It is so easy to make, and everyone has their own favorite tuna salad variation. This week, I decided to put an asian spin on my favorite tuna salad recipe.  I added roasted […]
