Southwest Cabbage Rolls

Let me start by saying I intended to name this dish Cabbage Burritos or Low-Carb Wet Burritos, but my mom didn’t like those names. She said they sounded weird and gross and like something you don’t want to eat. She wanted me to name it Stuffed Cabbage. We settled on Southwest Cabbage Rolls. I made…

Sweet Potato Toast

Breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. The eggs, the bacon, the raisin toast, the biscuits, the bagels, the English muffins, the croissants–it’s all just so good.

Pepper Lime Fish Soup

I am in love with ceviche. Everything about it is perfection. But being in Indianapolis means ceviche simply isn’t a reality. Tonight I had such a craving for it. I wanted to taste the coolness of fresh fish and lime followed by the crunch of a saltine, or better yet–a plantain. I’m seriously missing Costa…
