Paleo Curry Chicken Salad

It is officially summer and temperatures definitely got the memo! It has consistently been above 80 degrees for the past week and the last thing I want to do is be in the kitchen! Once temperatures gets above 90 degrees, it is just too hot to even eat! Well, not really. A girl has got to eat! But I definitely gravitate towards salads and dishes that I don’t need to use an oven or stove to make – like this Paleo Curry Chicken Salad!

Paleo Green Curry Chicken Soup

I love January! Why you ask? Because January is National Soup Month! And by now everyone knows how much I love soup. However, not everyone in my house loves soup as much as I do.

Roasted Lemon-Thyme Chicken with Fall Veggies

I’ve lived in the lower-North East U.S. all of my life. From Pittsburgh, to White Plains, NY, landing in Philadelphia, and now in middle-of-nowhere Ohio.

Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken (aka 三杯鷄)

As some of you might already know, I’m a Taiwanese-American. Growing up around these parts, my mom enrolled me in Chinese School.  It’s not like normal school – all it is is it’s a 2 hour class on Saturday where a teacher taught you Mandarin Chinese and Chinese Literature.  One of my fondest memories from back then was my mom and I would always grab dinner at the local Taiwanese restaurant and I would ALWAYS beg for Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken (aka San Bei Ji or 三杯鷄).
