Quick Vietnamese Pickled Carrots

Quick Vietnamese Pickled Carrots

The other day I made the most marvelous (if I do say so myself, and I do, I do) Bahn Mi Street Tacos. If you haven’t seen that post, take a peek! One of the defining elements in that recipe is these Quick Vietnamese Pickled Carrots, a little sweet with tangy undertones from the vinegar, and they’re a little addictive!

I don’t know if any of you guys watch Diners Drive-Ins & Dives but I swear it’s becoming an issue at my house. I might need a support group! That’s where I got the idea of Bahn Mi Street Tacos. They’re def a play on American Southern and Mexican with just a touch of Asian tossed in the mix. And just when you might think you’re bored of street tacos…this one is surprising in over the top flavor. A little crazy, even, but it just works!

Instant Pot Roasted Chicken

Instant Pot Roasted Chicken

If you’re a follower, you gotta know I love my Instant Pot! But I love it for the things it does well and for me it’s just a tool (nope, it hasn’t replaced either Chance or Homer’s spot on my bed) but I’m not one to compromise on any recipe just to use it. While I will probably still roast chicken every now and then in the oven, I’m really impressed with this Instant Pot Roasted Chicken!

Peruvian Quinoa Soup

Peruvian Quinoa Soup

First a disclaimer! I have no idea how Peruvian this soup actually is! But I do know Peruvian Quinoa Soup is a beautiful soup this time of year (late spring) and perfect for any cold, rainy days. Of course, you can have it any time of the year; that could never be wrong. It’s comforting and full of good stuff and hearty without feeling heavy. And best of all, it’s made with mostly pantry ingredients.

Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage

Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage

I’m so psyched about this Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage. It’s easy, it’s humble and it inspired a whole meal. This is a recipe that mimics some pickled cabbage I had once at a restaurant so maybe Asian “leaning” would be more descriptive. Honestly, though, I don’t think anyone will search for that!
