Chicken piccata is the easiest and tastiest Italian dish when you are in a hurry! You probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. It's a really simple recipe and I had some requests so here goes...

Easy Mushroom Steak Sauce in Cast Iron on the Grill

16 May 2016

Mushroom Wine Sauce

I grilled a steak in my cast iron skillet this weekend. When I was finished grilling I couldn't just let all those delicious brown bits go to waste (that should be illegal)! So I decided to throw in a few ingredients to deglaze and make a mushroom sauce real quick. Here goes...

God's Own Country: Kerala, India

15 May 2016

Here begins our adventures in God's Own Country, also known as, Kerala, India!  First impression walking out of the airport....Are we in Goa?!  Our driver's name is Dev (short for some impossibly long name that I can't remember).  He says we are going to Munnar first, only a 4 hour drive from the airport. Let's hit the road!

South Africa: It's Not What You Think

15 February 2016

I was recently asked to write a guest blog post for Journeyman. I will be writing a 5 part series on my adventures in South Africa. The following is the first part, check out more on Journeyman's blog!


Gansbaai

AFRICA! What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear that word? I will tell you what came to mine…poverty, monkeys, lions, and giraffes! Basically I was thinking Lion King with a little Blood Diamond mixed in. Boy was I wrong! South Africa is the most gorgeous country I have been to thus far. The oceans sparkle, the countryside is vibrant green, and the plentiful vineyards are back dropped by gorgeous mountains that look like a scene from a movie that was only edited to look that beautiful. The trick is to land in Cape Town but rent a car and travel outside the city. The roads are better than ours here in the States, no potholes, easy to understand signs and everyone followed the rules, but just remember that you will be driving on the opposite side of the road. Everything was so affordable and the best part was the delicious wine and gourmet food. It’s a 5 star vacation on a 3 star budget for those of us visiting from America.

I had traveled to South Africa with my sister and met my cousins from India, London, and Canada there. We were 5 girls in Africa and we had an unforgettable and amazing time! Let me tell you about the time I came face to face with a Great White in Gansbaai.

These crispy, buffalo chicken bites are a perfect game day snack that you can feel a little less guilty about because they aren't fried, they are baked! My family loves spicy but you can adjust the amount of buffalo sauce you use according to your taste!

This pizza is even tastier than the first one I posted, if you like BBQ that is! It's the same method as the Cheese Pizza recipe but different ingredients! Again, there are no quantities because you can add as much or as little as you want! Do you want to know the secret...
