Why I Love to Cook

I love to cook, in case you have not noticed. In my (not so) humble opinion, I tend to be pretty good at it.  Recently, I realized I was using my cooking abilities in both a healthy and unhealthy manner.  As I look back over the years, I can see where I used it as a tool to get people to like me.  Moreover, I would use my culinary prowess to get praise and acceptance.

Chicken Soup and Netflix’s Altered Carbon

The second season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon is here! I stumbled up on season one quite some time ago. Instantly, I was in love with the concept. The visuals, concepts and acting was fantastic to me. After I watched the last episode, I wanted more. It took a while, but more is finally here!

Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli

Stir-fried beef and broccoli is one of my favorite dishes. It is super simple and quick. The key is to get all your mise en place done and cut your flank steak on a bias.  It is also great with chicken, pork tenderloin and several meat substitutes.

Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

Finally we have an almost perfect Chicken & Sausage Gumbo! This is the third time I have made this recipe from Food Network by Emeril. It is actually a combination of this and this recipe by him. When I say it was a journey to make this gumbo for the third time, I would not be exaggerating one bit!

Self-Care Day

Today, I decided I needed a self-care day. It was a difficult, emotional past few months.  I'm finally back in Ohio.  Yet, my tension are still quite high. It has been a while since, I had taken some time to myself, alone.  It was time I put everyone else on hold.  For a few hours, I need to shrug off all my stress, hurt and confusion.

A Night Out in Dayton

After being cooped up in the house a night out in Dayton was on the menu. However, this is my first winter here in Ohio. Now being a California girl, this single-digit weather does not agree with my constitution. That being said, it is not as bad as I thought it would be. It has been a while since I had been out and about. When I found out Picwas having mac-n-cheese pop up at Toxic Brew Company, it was the perfect reason to brave the elements.
