Fresh Apple Chutney

Here’s a fun fact for you- six out of every 10 apples consumed in the United States come from Washington state orchards. That’s a pretty high percentage! Apples are probably my favorite Washington grown agricultural product (right after cherries and wine, of course.) I love love love getting my hands on fresh apples, especially when…

Tree Cafe, Moses Lake

At first glance, Tree Cafe may not seem like anything special. Their exterior is a little underwhelming, the words “Chinese Food” the only indication as to what lies beyond the front door. But despite its humble look, Tree Cafe is home to the best Chinese food I’ve been able to find on this side of…

Tomatillo Chicken and Rice bowls

If you’re looking for one of those hearty, stick to your bones type of meals then you came to the right post. Creating this recipe was sort of a happy accident (keyword being “happy”) and I’m literally kicking myself for not thinking of this any sooner. Learn from my mistake though and add this meal…

I tried a meal delivery service… and loved it!

*Disclaimer: The views and opinions in this review are my own. I was not compensated in any way by Hello Fresh. * Shoutout to all the moms (and dads) who put dinner on the table night after night. That’s seriously some hard work! I mean, first there’s figuring out what meals you’re going to be…

Gooey oven S’mores

It’s turning out to be quite a busy summer for us. We’ve been on the go the past few weeks celebrating birthdays and graduations and attending various family events. We finally had some time to relax over the Fourth of July weekend though and spent a nice, peaceful few days at my parent’s property in…

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…
