This week’s menu:

Tomato Sandwiches

You know what I think is interesting?The fact that you can absolutely hate eating something one day, while turning around and completely changing your mind the following day, weeks, or even years down the line. That’s where I’m at with tomatoes. I really didn’t like tomatoes growing up as a kid. I just didn’t enjoy…

Taqueria Jalisco

This place is so good that they have two locations! I’ve only been to the location on 82nd, but they are my favorite go-to for birria tacos, al pastor, and breakfast. They’re the reason why you’ll always want a little bit of cash on hand at all times. They’re cash only. Pictured: Far Left (birria…

Taste Tickler

Nestled in the NE neighborhood of Portland, OR, this hole in the wall, gem of a shop, is serving up some of their own classic subs, to quick bento boxes. This place is a go-to for lunch! I had the pleasure of trying Taste Tickler last Friday for lunch. I ordered the 10″ Teriyaki Chicken…

potato croquettes

I don’t make mashed potatoes often, but when I do, I like making a little extra for what I need so I can make these delicious potato croquettes later on in the week. Along with whatever mashed potatoes you have leftover, you’ll need the below ingredients to create these delicious pucks. Ingredients 1-3 cups of…

Feel better soup

aka Chicken Noodle Soup I came down with a pesty little cold the other weekend and I think this soup helped me feel better. It’s your classic chicken noodle soup, with short cuts. Below is a rough estimate to what I used and what I did to make soup that lasted a few days. When…

mille fuelle nabe

I first saw legendary Hyori eat this on her show, ‘Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast’ on Netflix. (Learn more about the show here.) It’s the best meal to make when you’re craving a hearty shabu-style meal, but don’t want to go out or prepare all the fixings at home. You can substitute the ingredients to whatever…

luc lac

If you live in the Portland, OR area, I recommend Luc Lac for delicious vietnamese rice and vermicelli bowls.

best shabu sauce ever

Make a delicious sauce to pair along with your arrangement for shabu at home. The bright cilantro and nutty contrast with sesame brings everything together.

egg in a basket

If you’re looking for a savory breakfast option that’s quick and easy to make at home, make an egg in a basket.

beef pepper lunch

I remember my first time having beef pepper lunch back at Super Pan, in the Richmond District of San Francisco. I got the classic beef pepper lunch with corn and all the fixings. I remember the sizzling sound of the hot plate making its way to our table, and the glossy sauce that was glazed…
