• Chicken Curry

    This chicken curry recipe has my favorite elements of Indian takeout along with the benefits of home cooking and comfort food. This curry combines chicken, potatoes, and chickpeas in a sauce that balances the spiciness from the curry seasonings with the creaminess from the yogurt.

  • Peruvian-Style Trout Ceviche

    Peruvian-Style Trout Ceviche showcases the simplicity of one of Peru’s favorite dishes. Light and refreshing yet flavorful, this ceviche recipe is easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. 

  • Kimchi Fried Rice

    This fried rice recipe uses kimchi and Gochujang to create a delicious twist on traditional fried rice recipes.  Kimchi and Gouchujang, which is a Korean chili paste, are both fermented and a bit spicy so they bring depth and heat to the recipe.

  • The quick pickled radishes provide a nice pop of acidity

    These chicken tacos are perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that still feels a bit special. Don’t skip the toppings – they really take the tacos up a notch.

  • This dish goes great with jasmine rice and stir fired vegetables on the side

    Thai Beef with Herbs gets its bright Thai flavors from a squeeze of lime and a handful of fresh herbs.

  • Spit roasting is a really fun way to make carnitas

    This version of carnitas avoids the extra fat by spit roasting the pork shoulder to get a crisp exterior while keeping the soft juicy texture inside. It's a really fun and tasty way to make delicious pork carnitas.

  • These pork tacos are tender with a sweet citrus flavor

    These slow cooked pork tacos are fall a part tender with a sweet, spicy citrus flavor.  By using a slow cooker they're easy to get ready the night before and let cook all day long.

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
