Roasted Carrot Ginger Potstickers

Dinner, Healthy, One-Pot Meals, Quick and Easy, Spring

The temperatures have officially risen in El Ley and I now find myself wearing my favorite thing: shorts, denim skirts and sneakers. It’s no longer boot season and I love it! When Love and Lemons Everyday, showed up on my doorstep, it was like opening a box of sunshine. All the recipes feel so fresh and delicious and healthy.

Whenever I’m figuring out what I should make for dinner, Jeanine’s blog is always a go-to for me. I find so much delicious vegetarian inspiration from her. Everything looks so clean and tasty! It makes me wanna put on a workout outfit and cook some dinner that’ll make me feel good about myself lol. Continue Reading

Zuni Cafe-Style Pollo a La Brasa Chicken

Dinner, Healthy, Healthy (ish), One-Pot Meals, Winter

Every now and then I wonder what it would be like to own a restaurant. And what my restaurant would look and feel like. I think about what I would serve, what my story would be, what the decor would look like. And then I immediately remember the skinny profit margins, back-breaking work, my lack of experience in that area and tell myself that I’m crazy lol. The idea soon flies out the window! My family thanks me.

But if I did in theory own a restaurant, this would be on the menu. Food like this would be served. It’s a roasted chicken with flavors of Peruvian pollo a la brasa, my favorite chicken ever.

Do you know what feels decadent? Buying lobster tails and cooking them at home. Hence, the reason why I named one of my favorite pastas on this blog “pay-day lobster pasta.” It’s not every day we eat lobster. But today I’m bringing it with this Spicy Lobster Bucatini with Burrata.


How to Cook Lobster Tails:

The worst thing you could EVER do in your life/cooking is to overcook seafood. It’s a true crime. Here’s how I do it:

  • Cook lobster in gently simmering water for 8 minutes, just until they turn opaque.
  • Run under cold water to cool them down.
  • Flip the lobster tail over and using kitchen shears, cut slices onto each side and pull back the bottom part.
  • Remove the lobster tail meat and then chop it up.
