Momma’s Chili Recipe

My mom is notorious for flying by the seat of her pants when it comes to cooking. She can look in a nearly empty pantry and come up with something that may not be gourmet but is completely delicious. When Mr. Bear and I were married, I would often call my mother up and ask [...]

minted zucchini orzo salad

I had the most amazing salad on the cruise we took in May, and I couldn’t wait to get home to try and replicate it. It tastes amazing ice cold, which is something great in this heatwave Seattle is having, and great as a mom in general since my food is always cold by the [...]

The ingredients are: 2 medium carrots 2 medium courgette (I had to look this up… it’s a fancy [...]

This recipe is arguably Japanese, but substituting lime for the lemon and adding some different herbs gives it a little Vietnamese flair. It [...]
