Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos are vegan based, but if you add cheese they become vegetarian bites. The choice is yours!

I think about soy chorizo potato tacos and my mouth waters. They are a total treat in my house and a serious indulgence. It’s like a holiday meal on a Tuesday night, except no real reason to celebrate except for TACOS! My husband requests them casually all the time hoping I’ll say yes and just start frying the shells in preparation.

Berry Poppy Seed Pancakes cooked in Tuxton Homes nonstick frypan

I wake up with breakfast on my mind, and today I thought it would be extra cute to make Berry Poppy Seed Pancakes. Imagining the colors of the pancakes would be so aesthetically pleasing against my new Concentrix 2-Piece Open Nonstick Frypan Set from Tuxton Home. That’s a crazy way to plan a meal but I’m absolutely giddy over the blush pink frypan set.

I’m a woman that loves staying in for the night playing fantastic music and eating delicious food. A few weeks ago I got an advanced copy of Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Juanes (which is out May 3rd on CMH Label Group). The album features gorgeous, lullaby versions of Juanes best-known and beloved cuts. I know the album is intended for babies, but it is so easy on the ears and really plays to the baby soul in me.

Roasted Asparagus Spring Salad: Is the type of salad you wish you could eat everyday.

Are you one of those people that never want to make salad for whatever reason? The thought of making salad RARELY appeals to me, because I don’t think it’s going to be satisfying enough as a meal. Then the second it’s done and I’m eating it, I can’t believe how delicious it is and promise myself to eat a beautiful salad as such EVERYDAY! Ahhhh the vicious salad cycle.

One of my dearest girlfriend Monique is vegan. For her birthday (April 17th) this year she called and said to me “I don’t want you to buy me anything for my birthday, all I want is for you to make me a vegan dessert.” I said “Do you have something in particular in mind?” She said “Nope, just make me something for my birthday.” The first thing I thought was vegan brownie oreo cupcakes.

Soy Chorizo Fried Rice: An incredible meatless weekday meal.

I live in Los Angeles, one of the largest food meccas in the world.  LA is a melting pot of flavors and is known for an endless combination of fusions. I love that I can hop in my car and reach any type of cuisine within a few minutes. These experiences have carved out a little niche in my culinary heart and help inspire my own home-cooked fusion cuisine.  My most treasured Asian-Latin fusion dishes I make is Soy Chorizo Fried Rice.
