• Project EHC: Cau Cau de Pollo

    It’s been a while since I posted a Peruvian recipe! I’ve introduced you to all of my favorites already, so I had to clear the brain cobwebs for this one. Speaking of cobwebs, the spiders are out in full force around here. Do spiders have a season? Because summer seems to be it. There is [...]

  • Project EHC: Fingerling Potatoes

    I’d like to start this post by saying that I really admire those of you who cook/invent new recipes everyday for your blog. I don’t have the energy or brainpower to think of new things that often. Thank you for that though, because that’s where I get my ideas from! Moving on… Something about this [...]

  • Make Cupcakes, Not War: Blackberry Cupcakes

    Have I told you how much I love blackberries? They were on sale last week at my local supermarket and I couldn’t buy enough of them. Of course, that means that now I have a bunch of blackberries that need to be eaten asap. No problem. I toyed with the idea of blackberry margaritas (always [...]

  • Project EHC: Asian Nachos!

    The good people over at Grand Lux Cafe have this appetizer that my friends and I are sort of, kind of, downright obsessed with: That description doesn’t even do it justice honestly. The peanut sauce is the thing that kitten dreams are made of. The flavors of the wontons, sauce and chicken blend so perfectly [...]

  • Project EHC: Flank Steak Tacos

    If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s how much I love a good piece of steak. I take that back. If there’s one thing you should know about me it’s that I wrote and illustrated a book about a chicken who crossed the road when I was 6. On notebook paper. He [...]

Eunice’s How-To’s: Celebrating National Nutrition Month

Although I used to see March as that sad month that forced me to deal with the harsh realities of being a year older (drama much?), I now have a reason to look forward to it. You see,  March is also National Nutrition Month! According to the American Dietetic Association, this is a month to [...]

Project EHC: Breakfast Potato Skins

While visiting my local TooJay’s a few weeks ago, I came across a menu item that intrigued me: Breakfast Potato Skins. I didn’t order them because I was more excited about making them myself. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? Breakfast Potato Skins  (inspired by TooJay’s) Ingredients: 2 medium baked potatoes 2 eggs, scrambled [...]

Project EHC: Red-Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

This box has been haunting my cupboards for the past few months: I’ll admit. I only bought it because it said “Inca Red”. Making “Inca Red” quinoa sounded like something an official Peruvian would make, right? Unfortunately, I had no idea how to prepare quinoa and, honestly, it just didn’t look that good to me. [...]

Project EHC: Spinach and Artichoke Dip

As soon as my blog friend Erika posted this spinach and artichoke dip recipe, I knew I had to try it. Spinach dip is one of my guilty pleasures and the fact that this one wasn’t covered in greasy globs of cheese (I’ve come across some scary dip in my day), made it even better. [...]
