Savory Morning Buns: White Cheddar and Green Olives

Savory Morning Buns: White Cheddar and Green Olives

Every morning has the potential to be a good one when you have a handful of morning buns. Last time, I made a full on sweet version with cinnamon, here. This time, I was craving something savory, slightly crusty on the outside, moist and chewy on the inside. […]

Furikake Popcorn

Furikake Popcorn

Know what goes well with an ice cold beer? Chips you say? Meh. Peanuts? Sure, but not what I have in mind today. If you’ve never had furikake popcorn and you enjoy a frosty beer, then this snack was made to pair with that beer… […]

On a recent jaunt to Tijuana, we had dinner at a new- to- us restaurant. To start things off, we had some drinks and along with our libations came a small dish of crunchy churros. They were made with blue corn and looked like these […]
