Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe is a hit at just about every outdoor party. It’s creamy and crunchy. It’s salty and sweet.

Tortilla Española

Tortilla Española is one of my favorite foods. Period. Not to be confused with a tortilla – it’s an egg dish full of olive oil, potatoes and onions. It’s easy, filling and is a complete crowd pleaser at every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Peanut Stew

Rainy season can sometimes really drive you crazy. Dark, dreary days followed by long dark evenings – it gets monotonous after a while. For me, it’s important to be able to change it up a little bit for dinners, always, but especially when the weather gets the best of me.
