I hope you have been enjoying our partnership with Ralphs grocery store and their Taste of Spain campaign! It's always such an honor for us to be working with such great companies. Our previous featured recipes, Patatas Brava and Spanish Tapas were delicious and so much fun to make! Today we are sharing a Spanish classic - Paella with chicken and chorizo. A rich and hearty comfort meal that is frequently served through out Spain. How do I know this? Well my husband, Brandon actually lived in . . .
If you know me, you know I am no stranger to potatoes. I have always loved potatoes, since I was a child, but spending my youth in Idaho only gave me a stronger respect for these delicious vegetables. I love their versatility. They can be use for just about any dish, with any seasonings, in any culture, for any course. Welllll, maybe not dessert? I don't know. I might have to do some digging to figure out that one? I'm so excited for this post! It's another addition to the Taste of Spain . . .
Yearsandyearsandyears ago, Nate and I sat on our newly carpeted floor eating curry for the first time with our Japanese friends. We had no kids who would spill or make messes! Lucky us, our dear friends were also our neighbors. Naomi surprised us with dinner, bringing over bowls of hot rice, curry chicken and veggies for all of us. I remember taking a few bites of the curry, thinking man this is so good, how have I never tried curry before?- and looking up at Nate who looked at me the exact . . .
One of my lifers and I used to frequent one of the best Mediterranean places I've been to, Pita Hot, when we all lived the happy little grad school-wife life in sunny SoCal. We ate out a lot, actually, as our husbands were MIA, which means we could eat whatever we wanted whenever we wanted! We had our favorite taco, burger, sausage, waffles, brunch, pasta, and cupcake place all nailed down. Gimme all the food... I've tried my hand at falafel several different times, trying different . . .
My husband and I are obsessed with the movie Nacho Libre. The first Halloween our son could walk, I made a Nacho costume for him, and it was awesome. We quote it all the time and giggle without fail. We also happen to love nachos. Give us all the nachos. We also love pulled pork, so I added smokey pulled pork and it made my nacho life complete. Make a little chipotle lime créma and this is perfect for your Superbowl party, finger-licking good! I've got recipes for . . .
When all of us Oh So girls were living in Southern California (insert crying emoji), I worked in a cardiac ICU in Anaheim. LOVED it--the job (we truly did some amazing things and I learned so much) and the people. The patient population and my co-workers were about the most culturally diverse I've ever seen. I was definitely the minority, as most of my co-workers were from Malaysia, Philippines, India, Somalia, South Africa, Germany, Korea, I could go on. Their Taco Tuesday couldn't be beat, and . . .
I am so excited for this vegetarian week! I'm from Texas, so I'm obviously a steak-grilling, brisket-pounding, burger-loving gal. BUT. I'm a changed woman. My husband and I lived in California for several years, so you know it was bound to happen. The hippies and the veggie-loving local-supporting crowd at the farmers' markets and roadside fruit stands got to me. And I liked it. Carly, one of the girls here at Oh So is a vegetarian, and I had several other friends that were vegetarian. . . .
Oriental Cabbage salad is a favorite around our house. I personally love the crunch of the cabbage and the sweet tangy dressing. This is one of my classic go-to salads for barbecues or parties- it is such a crowd pleaser. I always get asked for the recipe, so here it is! I feel like this salad has been around the block a few times, most of my friends have had it and have a variation of the salad they love. Some add chicken (which I love), some add in more veggies like shredded carrots. . . .
I love me a good bean burrito. Nothing fancy, no rice or anything crazy, just simple, tasty refried beans, maybe a little cheese, sour cream, or a smidgen of enchilada sauce, and everything spiced just right. I usually add some spices and a little milk to most cans of refried beans, and while they are delicious, I've been dying to try making my own. Like using real dried pinto beans. I felt very legit, let me tell you... like I just couldn't quit. Y'all it's so easy, you can't . . .
HOOOOOOLY Crap. If I could swear and get away with it I would. These tacos are THAT good. we all LOVED these tacos. I've made a few different versions of chili-lime tacos, trying to find the right balance. But guys. These are the winner. The two secret ingredients...more chili and more lime. Not just any ol' chili though. That was my problem. Chili powder, dried chilis, smokey chili's were not doing the trick! What we needed? Sriracha baby!! My husband has recently become obsessed with . . .
