Curried Salmon Salad Sandwich

There’s something about curry that is kind of addictive.   I mean sure, there are people who probably don’t care for curry.  I am not one of those people.  Neither is KB.   That man will sprinkle the spicy curry powder on anything.  True story: one day I made beef and broccoli (a kind of

Spicy Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad Sandwich

Remember how I went on that grilled cheese bender a little while ago?  When I was making my Ahi tuna poke bowls, I had an extra piece of Ahi tuna.  Now I’ve never been one to waste a good piece of tuna, so I decided to make a tuna salad with my extra piece.  I

Buffalo Chicken Salad Wrap

Lunch time is always the bane of my existence.  I know it shouldn’t be since I work from home, but since LJB is usually with me, it becomes a challenge.  I’ve fallen into the habit of lunch out with a friend a lot more than I probably should, because it’s easier, I know he’ll eat

BLT Grilled Cheese

Remember how I went on a grilled cheese bender a few months ago?  I mean, can you blame a girl?  Carbs…cheese…what’s not to love about a grilled cheese?  So the other day I saw a picture/video of a BLT grilled cheese which made me drool…which meant (of course) I had to make one.  I didn’t

Spicy Avocado Toast

Toast is all the rage now-a-days.  Personally, I like toast because there’s carbs involved.  And deliciousness.  If that’s really a word. Toast is a good excuse to use carbs as a vehicle for what you really want to eat.  In a creative way.  You can pretty much make toast any way you want, it’s up

Marinated Tofu Stir Fry

I had a random hunk of tofu in my refrigerator.  I know I bought it for a certain recipe I wanted to make, but I forgot what it was. I’m crazy like that.  I buy things and then I forget what I bought them for.  It makes for a very random menu sometimes.  Anyways, there

Caprese Salad

I love caprese salad.  I think it’s because it looks beautiful and tastes amazing.  It’s that one dish that I order in an Italian restaurant and pay an arm and a leg for, but I never think to make it at home.  It’s super easy because it only has a handful of ingredients.  And if

Pasta with Tomatoes and Bacon

In the summer I like to frequent the farmer’s markets.  And since it’s October and technically fall, it feels a little weird to be blogging this recipe.  But it was super delicious and I feel bad not sharing.  I was at the farmer’s market a few weeks ago and I found these cute little heirloom

Short Rib and Stilton Grilled Cheese Sandwich

So the other day I made my Guinness braised beef short ribs.  And of course, I had leftovers.  That’s the thing about short ribs…sometimes (not often) you have leftovers.  I think it’s the nature of the beast.  Or the fact that I made a lot.  Who knows. Either way, normally I can do some serious

BLT Egg Salad Sandwich

I love a good egg salad sandwich.  I’ve eaten them more often since KB and I started keeping a bowl of hard boiled eggs in the fridge. It makes it so convenient for snacking and also easier to make an egg salad sandwich when the craving arises.  So the other day a friend gave me
