Fish Taco Slaw Bowls with Mango Salsa and Chipotle Aioli

I had the idea for this recipe over a year ago, but I got hung up on my poor choice of title at the time, and the idea ended up on the back burner. I was just south of LA having fish tacos with my cousin at this absolutely phenomenal place. (Whenever I'm near the ocean, I make it my ... Read More

Curried Mango Chicken Salad

I can't remember exactly when I first tasted curried chicken salad, but I was hooked from the first bite.

Slow Cooker Chinese 5 Spice Pulled Pork

This recipe is another result of trying to branch out more often with different spices. And I've been having so much fun creating new recipes with a twist. (I'll be sure and list some of the recipes I've been doing below.) Often the beginnings of a recipe come from necessity, meaning I have something in the fridge or freezer I ... Read More
