Taco Time

Yes, this is a photo of taco fixings, but there’s one little bowl in the bottom-center that stole the show for me. I’ve been obsessed with sikil pak lately, though I first found out about it at Güero, a really excellent torta (not taco) joint […]

Wasting Away Again

Slushy margarita part deux: good tequila, @goyafoods frozen tamarind pulp (from Dashen International Market on 30th/Glisan), lime juice, honey, ice, with a sprinkle of Sarah's Volcano Sparkles™ gifted to me from @spicymarshall #margaritas #drinkglobally A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) on Jun 25, […]

Taco Rice

Okinawan taco rice for #tacotuesday! Mine has some spicy queso on it, but plain old cheddar for the milder tummies in my house. #dinnertonight #yoshoku #wwii #japanesefood #instafood #tacos #rice #queso #weeknightdinner #okinawa #food52 #bareaders #f52grams #hashtagstakemeaway A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) […]

Vegetarian burrito in a bowl

I eat a lot of variations on "tofu-veggie stir-fry" because it's fast, cheap, nutritious, and filling. Also, because I was a hippie in the 90s. This one is burrito-flavored, with @tillamook pepper jack and a creamy dressing of sour cream stirred together with homemade tomatillo […]

Roasted Salsa Verde

I love salsa verde. Throw it into a pot with a pork shoulder and you’ve got chili verde, ready for stuffing peppers or enchiladas. Mix it with crème fraîche and use it as a sauce for grilled fish. Or just eat it in a warm tortilla […]

Pulled pork tacos

Yes, delicious pork tacos. But first, indulge me for a minute while I embark on some quick link-dropping and tangent-going, and don’t you dare pull a tl;dr on me. I never write any more. You’ll get to the photos soon enough. So I was reading […]

Feijoadas grandes

Last summer I was totally knocked up and not good for much. Thank god I still had the presence of mind to a) grow a vegetable garden that included scarlet runner beans and b) utilize some of October’s nesting instinct to harvest all of the […]

Tallarines con guasanas y carnitas

Don’t be afraid – it’s just pasta with fresh chickpeas and shredded pork. I threw in some calabacitas (a small, rounded zuke relative), too, just ‘cuz. I also found out that there is a Spanish word for pasta, and decided to use it instead of […]

Chicken enchilada soup and kabocha squash taquitos

I pulled some leftover soup from the freezer the other day, to make room for a tub of ice cream, and got around to heating it up for dinner. You can scarcely contain your excitement, right? Well sit tight, pretties, it actually gets interesting. The […]

Heirloom pico de gallo

My tomatoes are really coming on good now. I have to go out every day to keep up with them! Otherwise those fucking raccoons will steal them, take a few bites and then leave them there to rot. This is what they’ve been doing to […]
