Everything Bagel Deviled Eggs

Is it really a cookout if there aren’t deviled eggs? They’re one of my favorite things to bring to potlucks and they don’t stick around long. I used the base for my Bloomin’ Onion Deviled Eggs and just topped it with homemade Everything Bagel Seasoning instead of French fried onions. They were so tangy andContinue reading “Everything Bagel Deviled Eggs”

Five Spice Chicken Spring Rolls

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made Vietnamese Spring Rolls or Gỏi Cuốn and Spicy Peanut Sauce. I normally make them with shrimp, but Chicken sounded amazing.

I love Panda Express’ Crab Rangoons and they’re so easy to make! Oddly enough, they don’t use crab or imitation crab in their original recipe. Feel free to add some though, it’s delicious!

Homemade Black Beans

There is no price comparison when it comes to canned black beans and homemade. They’re so much richer in flavor and they’re not as hard as you think to make. You can also cook these in an InstaPot or slow cooker, but I prefer them on the stovetop. I definitely recommend cooking them with brothContinue reading “Homemade Black Beans”
