Pasta puttanesca is not a dish I would typically make. Though now that I think about, I should. Why is it not a dish I’d make at home? Because it has anchovies in it. I used to not like anchovies. But I’m coming around to it. And this pasta puttanesca with shrimp is one of […]
I stumbled upon beef barbacoa (copycat recipe) through my students obsession with a Mexican grill that I shall not name. They were constantly rushing out of class to try to make it there and back before lunch was over. Of course, the bright side of them catching my attention was that it encouraged me to […]
General Tso’s is a mouth watering dish with a kick of heat. After several conversations I’ve decided to add more meatless (or at least those that have fish) dishes.

A few years ago my parents introduced us to a “Pollo a la Brasa” in the neighborhood. At the time, the Pollo a la Brasa or Peruvian Roasted Chicken was one of the more popular Peruvian dishes.
