India House, Wenatchee

I don’t know when, or even how, it started- but I’ve got a seriously huge obsession with Indian cuisine. I’m not sure if it’s because of the amazing smells and flavors of the food itself or if it’s because it stirs up my longing for travel and everything exotic. It could even be because it…

Grilled BLTB wedge salad

Wedge salads are popping up on more and more restaurant menus these days and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I love me a good wedge salad! I know you technically have to do more work to eat it, but it’s so worth it. There’s a crispness you just can’t get with your traditional salad. Plus,…

Easy Bruschetta Chicken Burgers

  Have I mentioned how much I love the fact it’s no longer winter? I love being able to spend more time outdoors and not have to worry about the cold. Or the snow. Ugh. “Not winter” also means cooking and dining al fresco happens more frequently- which is one of my favorite things about…

Chicken Adobo/Estufao, a recipe from Guam

I’ve been feeling extra nostalgic lately so I turned to an old favorite for dinner this week. Chicken Adobo or Chicken Estufao is one of the most well-known dishes on Guam. Filipinos refer to it as Adobo, while the native Chamorro people call it Estufao. There are slight variations depending on who is making it, but…

Easy Cream Cheese Wontons

It’s been a busy couple of weeks at our house. Between work and various family events we’ve been constantly on the go! But it’s hard to complain because we absolutely love spending quality time with our families (plus, there’s usually some seriously amazing food involved). This weekend we celebrated Cotey’s mom’s birthday. We made up a…

Tales from the (Ale) Trail: St Brigid’s Brewery, Moses Lake

I’m not really one of those adventurer types, at least not in the Indiana Jones sense anyway. However, I do love a good quest- especially if it’s mainly indoors and involves beer. And/or food. That’s pretty much how the creators of the Inland Northwest Ale Trail got me. Their idea is simple, visit various craft…

Five bartender approved cocktails for your next party

It seems that spring is finally here! Our lake has thawed, we’re getting more and more sunny days and I can finally walk outside without a jacket! At our house, the start of the spring season also signals the start of BBQ season. Our backyard is usually the place to be when it’s nice out….

Ten Pin Brewing, Moses Lake

I first met the guys behind Ten Pin Brewing Co. back in 2013 when I was still writing for the Columbia Basin Herald. At the time, BJ and Jim were getting ready to serve their very first batch of craft beer to the public. They had a simple setup- four fermenters behind a see-through wall…

Mulligans at The Pointe, Moses Lake

The seasons aren’t the only things changing around here. Fans of the Steakhouse at Moses Pointe will notice the restaurant has reopened after their winter hiatus- but this time with a new name, and a slightly new vibe. The Pointe has always been a favorite of mine, even before I managed to trick their head chef…

Easy Girl Scout cookie ice cream

Where are all my Girl Scout cookie fans at? Let’s face it, Girl Scout cookie season is by far one of the best seasons of the year. Don’t tell me you don’t get super excited when you see cookie stands set up outside the grocery store. Or when your coworker’s kids hit you up for sales. It’s…

Budget friendly turkey pot pie

As much as I love being a foodie and eating new and exciting things all the time, I always have room in my stomach for good ol’ comfort food. You know what I’m talking about- the dishes that instantly make you think of your mom or even your grandma. The dishes that you ask for whenever you’re…
