Bibimbap- South Korea

I didn’t know whether to put this one in the S category, or the K category. Since I’m not posting a recipe for North Korea, I thought I’d stick it here. Bibimbap has a million different variations, but this is the one I’ve eaten my whole life. I’d take kimchi pork over bibimbap any day-…

Nasi Goreng-Indonesia

I love, love, love fried rice of any kind. I usually go the soy sauce, ginger honey, and rice vinegar route- I never thought about using tomato paste. And I always scrambled an egg in, instead of making an omelette. The point? Nasi Goreng is your standard fried rice after a makeover. Except instead of…

Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

1/3 of the ingredients are from the freezer. If you don’t have the other 2/3, I think you’re beyond help. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! The good news is, it’s entirely sugar free. It’s also high in protein. We won’t talk about the cholesterol. We’re trying to stay positive in 2018. It takes…

Gnocchi

Gnocchi is probably the most underrated Italian food. Bruschetta, polenta, foccacia, and antipasti have all been incorporated into the mainstream, but gnocchi’s been left behind, in all it’s spuddy glory. Did you know spuddy was a word? No squiggly red line showed up under it, so it’s a word. That’s my story and I’m sticking…

Spicy Cabbage Hash

I ruminated on this title for a long time. Cheesy cruciferous hash was inherently contradictory, the unpretentious former juxtaposed with the intellectual latter (I spent 10 minutes rooting through the dictionary writing that sentence). Red cabbage hash was misleading- there’s no red cabbage in this. Egg, cheese, tomato, cabbage, broccoli, and bell pepper hash got…

Serbian Çesnica

No, I didn’t skip ahead to S. This is all part of my holiday recipe scheme! That’s a weird way to put it. Never mind. I hear this is what the cool kids eat in Serbia on Christmas Eve- it’s a soda bread baked with a silver coin in it. Whoever gets the slice with…

Moyin Moyin- Democratic Republic

After all the mac and cheese I’ve been posting, this is a welcome, healthy break! Does anyone else feel like they can’t eat very much or eat anything heavy when it’s really hot? I definitely do. On a 100 degree day (thanks global warming!), Moyin Moyin is light, refreshing, and filled with salmon! All the…

Papas Rellenos- Bolivia

I know it’s early in the new year, and everyone is trying to eat healthy, so this recipe is basically just a boiled egg. Covered in potatoes. Dipped in a batter. And fried. But hey, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? You know the world’s gone crazy when a narcissist food blogger with…

Draniki-Belarus

Never, ever, EVER underestimate the power of a potato. Or an onion, for that matter. Or dill. Or sour cream. Or anything in this recipe, actually! Darniki is pretty different from anything I’ve had- I was expecting it to be a bit like a latke, or hashbrown. Not at all!   INGREDIENTS   3 potatoes…

Bibimbap

Well, hello everybody! Tis me! Due to many, many, MANY technical errors, I haven’t uploaded for nearly a month. But I’ll make up for it! I’m so excited fall is here, so I’ll be posting a lot of fall-centric recipes. But for now, bibimbap! I love a good bibimbap. Bibimbap is a dish originating in…
