Prosciutto Wrapped Artichoke Hearts

This one sheet pan easy meal was born from another attempt to find ways to eat artichokes. I don’t know about you, but those artichoke hearts – frozen or from a jar – are not exactly the tastiest thing you can eat, and I’m a little bothered by texture.

Citrus and Aniseeds Infused Olives

Let’s take one thing out of the way. I love olives. I’m obsessed with olives. This is a long time love affair, I’ve been obsessed with olives since I was a kid.

Most of the time they are the result of my own travel and food experiences, but sometimes, like in this case, is just being curious about what other people’s favorite foods are. I asked my Peruvian friend to tell me one dish that is signature Peruvian and everyone loves, and by that I didn’t mean ceviche (which by the way is the first dish he named). Continue Reading…

Veggie Loaded Kimchi Sriracha Meatballs with Creamy Cauliflower Rice

Lately I’ve been cooking and eating mostly  leftovers and food prepared ad hoc, but this weekend I really felt like some serious meal prep. So I made these amazing meatballs with a hot kimchi-sriracha sauce I discovered in Whole Foods last night and I’m really happy with how they turned out. Served with cauliflower rice and broccoli slaw.
