Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala

Cold weather is here, and a lot of the time that means that you just want hearty comfort food with as little work as possible — enter the slow cooker! Chicken Marsala is one of my boyfriend’s favorite dishes to cook, so I decided that this time I’d make it for him — I’d just tweak the recipe a bit so that I don’t have to work as hard, but it would taste just as fresh and good.

Spicy Pepper Steak 青椒牛肉

Yes, I’ve had Pepper Steak out in American-Chinese restaurants before.  They’re not bad… but they’re not DELICIOUS like my mom’s homemade ones.  I always wondered if there was a reason to it other than my mom just being an awesome cook.  Well, I finally learned it from her and realized I love it so much because she doesn’t make it with regular Green Peppers!  She makes it with Hot Green Peppers … giving your average Pepper Steak a delicious kick!

Tom Yum Goong Soup (Thai Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup)… My first taste of hot and sour soup was at a Thai restaurant when I lived in Hawaii. It was late October and I was homesick.

So when the words “I’ll bake you something!” came out of my mouth as a bribe to get my supervisor at work to help me, I got a little scared when I realized I’d have to do something I hadn’t done in years — and this time, do it Paleo.

Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables

Root vegetables are to fall as asparagus is to spring. And yes, you know a true foodie when their season’s are marked by the changes in produce not the changes in weather. And I know, Brussels Sprouts aren’t root vegetables, but the name of this recipe was so catchy I couldn’t help myself! Forgive me. This Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables recipe is not your typical roasted root vegetable recipe. Yes, there are herbs and rustic knife cuts. But, this method of seasoning makes it so every vegetable is slightly different and totally jazzes up what is typically a one note dish.
