Poblano Queso Taco Burgers

Of course, Texas is known for their BBQ. However, a few other popular food groups are actually even more prominent: Tacos, Queso, and Salsa. Everyone always has an opinion on which restaurant has the most authentic taco or tastiest queso.

Chicken Satay Recipe

Chicken Satay Recipe

Another recipe that we created on our Asian Tapas night were these Chicken Satay Skewers. The reason why we decided we wanted to have this dinner theme night was because it reminded us of eating all the street food during the night markets in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thai Chicken Satay is the perfect snack because it is healthy, low carb, and totally scrumptious. Plus, one you marinade the meat, it grills up pretty quickly! This is also our go-to recipe for a quick weeknight meal.

Coca Cola Steak Marinade

Making a marinade is super weird. You mix a bunch of stuff together, add meat and hope for the best. We were planning on making this marinade the night before family was coming over to celebrate Gavin’s birthday. Well, that night was also our friend’s engagement party, which turned into us getting home buzzed up at midnight. Karen set her alarm bright and early, woke up in a haze and started creating the marinade. We’re surprised that she even remembered to write down the recipe, and were SHOCKED when tasted the finish product and it… was… awesome.

We discover new foods to cook with and even get a good giggle at some very “unique” ingredients. When we visit the local Asian market we always buy loads and loads of dumplings to steam as well as a bunch of unique spices to play with. You don’t even need to head to a specialty store in order to get Chinese Five Spice and this is the star of our recipe.
