Pizza in a Sandwich

I'm always on the look out for new things, new flavors and new places. I probably spend half of my free time surfing for new recipes online and I never get bored of it. I like to be different when everyone else is doing the same dish. 

I stumbled upon a recipe for a Raspberry Chipotle Barbeque pizza on Pillsbury. It was a very interesting mix of hickory flavored bbq sauce, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and raspberry jam. 

Sweet, smoky, cheesy and a little tangy with an extra spicy kick, just like your favorite Chicken Barbeque Pizza!

Stuffed Cheesy Bread on Crack

This is Cheesy-Melty-Onion-Garlic-Love weekend.  

Stuffed Italian Bread is like onion-garlic bread on crack.

Highly snackable, highly addictive, you find yourself unable to stop pulling those cheesy bread pieces
 and licking your fingers good after devouring each piece. 

Trust me. Your friends will go crazy over it.

Dinner in 15 Minutes or Less

After enduring endless jokes from my colleagues about the name of my blog and the irony that it doesn't have a SINGLE Asian recipe (Hey, I strongly object! That Shrimp Paste Fried Rice with Green Mangoes and Caramelized Pork counts!), I decided to do more Asian dishes from now on. 

Let's start with rice! Just my favorite subject! 

Kimchi Fried Rice with Bacon and Egg

Ever wonder how Koreans stay so slim? According to, obesity is not common in Korea due to the fact that Koreans eat a lot of Kimchi. 

 But just what is Kimchi? Kimchi is spicy fermented cabbages, sort of like the Asian version of Sauerkraut.

Potato Cheddar Soup to Get You Warm and Cozy

Cool days are pretty much a rarity where I'm from but when it comes,
the last thing I ever want to do is get out of bed. And go to work. Humph.

Wouldn't you just want to stay tucked under that warm, soft blanket and fade away into la-la land instead of being woken up annoyingly by that persistent alarm?

Two days ago, we were happily stuffing our faces with Southwest Loaded Baked Potato Skins, weren't we? 

Plenty of leftover mashed potato is good.
  Leftover mashed potato makes amazing Potato Cheddar Soup. Like loaded baked potatoes, only soup version.

Thick and creamy potato soup topped with crisp crumbled bacon, 
grated cheddar cheese and cilantro...

Just me, my blanket and a big ol' bowl of cozy warm soup.
 I want to be totally wrapped up in that delicious warmth, happily slurping away.

Southwest Loaded Baked Potato Skins

I have been on a Mexican kick lately for some reason. About 2 weeks ago, I had this insane craving for burritos that I went to a restaurant by myself. I could have eaten five burritos that night (good for my stomach, not so good for my waistline and thighs). Luckily, my wallet only allowed me to order one.

That only seemed to worsen my craving though. So after a lot of drooling, a lot of waiting and contemplating, I finally gave in and stuffed my face with this amazing Spicy Chicken Tamale Casserole. Love you, Cooking Light!

But some days I crave for fries.
