Salmon Tacos

Did you know that Discovery+ has the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, Animal Planet, and Magnolia Network? I discovered (hehe) every season of The Barefoot Contessa and this taco dinner was inspired by one of Ina Garten’s recipes. These salmon tacos are super quick, with little prep required making them the perfectly healthy, yet…

TexMex Tofu Tacos

These tofu tacos are my go-to weeknight dinner when I either don’t have much energy for cooking or can’t quite figure out what I want to eat. I always keep tofu in my fridge/freezer and plenty of chili powder in my spice pantry. So, these Texmex style soft tacos are easy to throw together at…

Pork Soft Tacos

At my house, we eat tacos on Tuesdays, but the same is also true for any other day that ends in y. I’ve wrapped everything from tofu to fried green tomatoes up in tortillas, and my fridge is always stocked with them. What I miss most though is fresh, handmade corn tortillas! As soon as…

Second Wind

April 4, 2018, the last day I clicked “Publish”. Nearly a year has passed since my last blog entry, and as I sit at my desk, with my clammy tiptoes pressed against our bamboo floors, trying to balance the black, slightly under inflated yoga ball, that’s indifferently bending and rolling beneath me, I ignore the…

Blackened Fish Tacos

  Driving back and forth from home to school three times a day for a whopping total of three hours a day in the car five days a week makes blogging regularly a bit of a challenge. Hopefully in the very near future I will have transportation assistance and can re-establish some sort of a…

Duck Breast Tacos

Since my lovely Herman’s Duck Breast came 4 to a package, I of course could not resist wrapping the leftovers up in a corn tortilla. This is definitely not your average taco and is something I am unfortunately going to crave like crazy now. And because I did utilize leftovers, this taco treat took less…

Chili Lime Shrimp Tacos

Labor Day, I was out manning my grill late into the night. When you’ve got smoked pork butt on the menu, you might want to avoid the rookie error I made and fire up your grill no later than midday. But I got distracted in the Wastelands, when I was finally like, “oh crap, I’m…

Cauliflower Soft Tacos

  Peace, love, and taco grease! Right? Well in this case, peace love, and sauteed cauliflower spiked with fennel and smoked paprika. Add a little water to the saute skillet just before serving and voila! Taco grease! Well, it was tasty enough to fool this die hard taco lover anyway. Add a side of my…

Daikon Scrambled Egg Tacos

What’s the number one must have hiking accessory? Why a hearty breakfast of course! Before I ventured out on my first hike on the Fairhill Trails near my home, I got busy preparing breakfast. With several organic daikon radishes in my fridge, courtesy of Fair Weather Farm at Fairhill, I decided to saute them hash-style…
