Herb Infused Butter Turkey

Turkey can often be dry and bland if done incorrectly. But if you do it right, it is one of the most delicious dishes you can serve for dinner. This year I wanted to make some turkey, but I knew that it would take a couple of days to prepare. I normally buy a frozen…

Tomato, Zucchini, and Caramelized Onion Galette

This summer we had tons of tomatoes and we started not to know what to do with them. I decided to make an easy Tomato, Zucchini and Onion Galette.

Bitter Melon and Egg

Bitter melon is a vegetable that you love or hate. I remember having it as a kid and not entirely loving the bitterness. My sisters and I would dare each other to eat the bitter gourd and see who ate the most. Over time, the bitterness grew on me and I would tolerate dishes that…

Tofu Nuggets

Lately I have been following a lot of vegetarian/vegan youtubers. This recipe was really interesting as you had to freeze tofu and defrost it to get it to a texture that resembles meat.

Pickle Brined Chicken

Have left over pickle juice and don’t want to waste it? Try marinating some chicken in it. This is probably the easiest brine there is. I think this would be great on a burger or as chicken fingers (which I did try the second time I made this). Remove the chicken from the brine and…
