Bacon Coconut Noodle

Bacon Coconut Noodle

There is always something great about making that first dish in your new kitchen. Learning the new space, finding out things that are great and not so great about it. Realizing things that you forgot to move or get at the store and making quick changes to the dish based on that. I made these bacon coconut noodles as the first dish at the place I moved into a few days ago and I am absolutely loving it. The kitchen and the noodles.

Chicken Hummus “Satay” Skewers

Chicken Hummus “Satay” Skewers

These chicken skewers are far from authentic but they are delicious and unbelievably easy to make. I like to think of it as a satay “hack” honestly. Toss a handful of ingredients together that you probably already have laying around, and you get an app that most party guests would be beyond impressed by!  The key to the recipe is the tasty Sabra hummus that is nice and nutty, salty and garlicky and adds so much dimension to the satay dip.

Red Curry Steak and Cauliflower Crostini

Red Curry Steak and Cauliflower Crostini

Besides dip, crostini is my favorite party finger food. I realized I hadn’t made some in a while, and the perfect opportunity came up last week when some friends were hanging out at my place for an hour before we all went out for the night. I wasn’t originally planning to go Thai with this, and just do marinated steak with a cauliflower mash, but as I was coming up with a marinade idea, I realized I had a jar of red curry paste and a can of coconut milk kicking around. The flavors immediately came together in my head and I went for it. Everyone loved them!
