Easy Flatbread

Easy Flatbread

While this isn’t my favorite flatbread flavor wise, it’s still good and so incredibly quick and easy. It is my go to recipe and the one I make most often for flatbreads because it is so quick and easy and I can pull it together in little time without much planning. You can keep it…


Adobo Chicken

Adobo Chicken

This is one of my all time favorite recipes. It came from my husbands Hawaiian aunt. Our first couple years of marriage I probably made it at least once a week, I didn’t have as many recipes under my belt then, lol. I haven’t made it as much in recent years and after making it…

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh, tabouli, tabbouli, tabboulah

Honey Lavender Lemonade

Honey Lavender Lemonade

Being well into summer with many more hot days ahead lemonade is a great refreshing drink. I love how the lavender in this really seems to mellow things out enough to make it even more refreshing and the honey blends so well with the lavender. This can also be made using green tea instead of…
