Fajita chicken bowls with cauliflower rice

I don’t mean this lightly when I say this recipe may be one of the best things I’ve ever cooked, and it’s coming your way just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Added to the list of reasons I should probably stop binge-eating Mexican food is an extremely exciting event that will require me to…

Zucchini “enchiladas” with tomato-braised chicken

Ahhh how has it been a month since I shared a new recipe? Actually, I’ll tell you how… I could give you the standard excuses: work has been insane, I’ve been busy, blah blah blah. But the real reason is that my sister got married on Saturday and the whole wedding business ended up taking…

Lazy chicken enchiladas verdes

For a self-proclaimed Mexican food addict, I don’t make it at home very often. My Tex-Mex kitchen skills are pretty much relegated to this salsa – which, admittedly, is the bomb. But on a recent Monday night when I was forced to have dinner at home due to cash flow issues (read: NYC has eaten my…

Mex and the city

I am a Mexican food fanatic. If you don’t already know that about me, you don’t know me at all. I attribute this obsession to a number of reasons. Number 1: My mother is a Texan. Number 2: Mexican food is delicious. Enough said. Honestly, I find it to be restorative. There’s no bad week…

Things I’ve eaten in 2016 so far

I want to do a weekly round up of everything I’ve eaten in the past 7 days that’s worth sharing. I’ve been negligent. So for now, let me round up everything I’ve eaten in the past two months and judge them. Why would anyone want to read this? Why am I doing this? All valid…
