On rainy spring afternoons, I hole up in the kitchen and make this asparagus soup recipe. It’s my spring substitute for the butternut squash soup I love making in the fall. When it’s too wet to be outside, I find it soothing and meditative to simmer a pot of asparagus soup on the stove and listen to the rain pattering on the roof. To me, it’s the perfect spring soup. Fresh basil makes it aromatic and refreshing, peas lend it a subtle sweetness, and blended potato makes it lightly creamy without any heavy cream. Serve it as a starter with […]

Mexican Beef Stew

Bisteces a la Mexicana (Mexican Style Beef Stew)

I make Colombian beef stew all the time (Carne Guisada) but wanted to try a Mexican version. Mexican beef has similar ingredients but uses jalapenos, which Colombian beef stew never uses. In Colombia, this dish is usually served with rice and potato or yucca. In Mexico, they serve it with rice and tortillas, plus pickled jalapeno on the side.

It’s probably pretty obvious by the many fried rice recipes on my blog that I LOVE fried rice! While I enjoy ordering takeout from a restaurant, I always try to find ways to recreate fried rice at home. That way, I can control what goes in it and keep it a bit lighter. I have multiple fried rice recipes, like House Special Fried Rice, Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, and Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice , but since I am the only salmon lover in my house, I usually whip this dish up for one, it’s my favorite! Also great with leftover salmon. You can double or triple as needed.

My mom has been making Spanish Tortilla all my life. It’s usually something she’ll bring to a brunch or serve as an appetizer. Her recipe has a lot more olive oil than this lighter version, but the great news is that you don’t miss it here! The pimenton aioli takes this tortilla to a whole new level, so don’t skip it (you may want to double it if serving guests). For more classic Spanish recipes, try my Mom’s Spanish Chicken and Rice, Pan con Tomate and Weeknight Seafood Paella.

I made these Waffled Crab Cakes a few years ago and thought I’d try switching it up with salmon. Plus, I wanted to try them out on my Mini Dash Waffle Maker (affil link). I made four small salmon cakes, but you can make them bigger if you have a larger waffle iron. I love how extra crispy they get with all that surface area. If you’d like to try some different salmon cake recipes, check out my Baked Salmon Cakes or these Salmon Croquettes with Dill Sauce. What should I waffle next?
