Hubby’s been on a serious roll with the cooking this week. Who knew getting a grill would mean he’d get so into cooking?! Go huuubby! It’s ya birthday!

Sorry for not posting yesterday, but here are some highlights from the last two days:


I celebrated Starbucks Monday on Tuesday. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean I had two Sbucks Mondays…just one a day delayed.


My friend (who’s from South India) made me some homemade Chana Masala. Homemade people! Score!

I totally owe her some sweets now for realz!


I hit up a local Indian restaurant to get the perfect accompaniment – naan!

Man this stuff was good! I must get the recipe from my friend! Btw, she cooked her chickpeas from dry in a pressure cooker. I think I need a pressure cooker so I can do the same! I’d like to start cooking my beans from dry instead of using canned beans.

As for dinner…

Hubby’s on a Roll!

With my week being extra hectic, hubby has really stepped up to help with dinner by finding recipes and cooking up two dinners in a row!


We finally found a pretty green avocado! Hooray! 🙂


And we also dug into those KW Collards we picked up recently. We heated up enough for both of us and barely made a dent in the container! This stuff is a great deal at 8.99 for as many servings as it looks to provide!

As for the taste – it’s soooo good! Most people think collards arent good when they’re not cooked with meat, but these vegan collards are full of flavor and even have a spicy kick!

For those in Greenville, SC, KW Collards will be doing a sampling at The Wild Radish at 161 Verdin Road this Saturday, June 5th. I’m not sure at what times, but I’m sure you could call the restaurant to find out. Definitely stop by for your sample!


So what did hubby cook first? Chipotle Grilled Chicken with avocado and romaine, KW Collards, and Food Should Taste Good (*) Cheddar chips (which are all GONE! Hubby downed them FAST! 😆 )





Meal #2 – Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter (click for recipe). Wow – I’m not sure I would have picked something like this out myself because I’m not a big seafood person. However, I LOVED this! The fish was not fish-y – it was nice and tender and flaky. The sauce was great – simple but flavorful.

I made sauteed kale with a splash of marsala wine and whole wheat cous cous for the sides. Nooommmm!



Tonight, I met up with Michelle and Jessie for FROYO at Yoforia! Man is froyo the new latte or what?!


The last few times have been all fruit so tonight I decided to go to the dark side…chocolate that is!

I got cookies & cream and ferrera roche froyo and topped it with strawberries, blueberries (gotta have some fruit), oreos, chocolate chips, coconut and chocolate syrup. Wow – so tasty! I still think the fruit based flavors/toppings are my fave, but I gotta switch it up once in awhile so I don’t get sick of this stuff!


I made sure to bring hubby home some froyo – basically the same as what I got with some substitutions.


He may or may not have let me have a bite of his. 😉

I wonder what hubby will make tomorrow?! Oh wait…we have plans to go OUT with some special friends. Hooray!

Plus, fun plans for a cookout on Saturday…and the good news for me…after racking my brain, I think I’ve come up with the perfect cookout dessert! Can’t wait to share! 🙂

Does your SO cook? What’s his/her signature dish or fave thing to make?

  1. Yes, froyo is the new latte!
    My husband is a certified chef, so he can definitely cook! But he cooks all meat dishes. When I was still eating meat he cooked a lot. Now, not so much. I do most of the cooking, which I am totally cool with. =)

  2. You and Tasha are lucky bums.

    My boy does not cook. I asked him to make dinner once and picked out a recipe. He couldn’t find all the ingredients needed so he just used what was on hand – chopped up and fried 3 onions and served it on a plate.

    The other time, he burned some mustard seeds which made me cough so much, it triggered a nose bleed.

    The one thing he can make is an amazing hot and spicy salsa.

  3. Everything looks yummy!!!

    I *still* haven’t been to Yoforia, and I usually have to avoid dairy, but everyone’s pictures from there look SOOOO amazing that I’m going to have to try it out. Hubs and I have plans to stop by SouthPark on Saturday to try it out. Can’t wait!

    DH actually does the majority of the cooking. He grew up with a huge culinary interest and my brother in law is actually a graduate from The Culinary Institute of American in NY, so they’re always talking anything and everything food. Hubs secret dream is to be on Throw Down with Bobby Flay, haha!

    I used to burn everything, but I’m getting better and taking a few cooking classes this summer. Yay!

  4. Ok, I’m gonna NEED that channa masala recipe. I’ve tried about 4 different ones, and none of them come out right. Hook me up!

    Also – I’ve recently been cooking beans from dry overnight in a slow cooker. Works great!

  5. My husband actually does cook a lot – especially during the week when my schedule tends to be crazier than his. I try to make it up to him by cooking more on the weekends. He’s great at trying new things with steak, fish, and whatever he’s read about. I try to stick with tried and true recipes (I cook mostly chicken recipes.) It’s an interesting balance. 🙂

  6. I’m sorry, as I do not mean to be rude – but I counted almost 10 hubbys in your last post. It is kind of annoying/childish (more annoying than anything), to be honest.

  7. Have I said how much I miss TCL and now I have this insane idea to head out for FroYo because the heat in Philly is beyond crazy! Oy to the vey! Thankfully I made some blueberry ricotta ice cream yesterday so it should be frozen by tonight. As for the pressure cooker, I have one but haven’t attempted to play with it – any idea for any good pressure cooker recipe sites?
