I LOVE stuffed peppers. I did my own variation of this dish when I first found my love of cooking. I made it for my parents and my boyfriend at the time who happened to LOVE how it tasted. Too bad I dumped him a few months later. There is a lot of flavor packed in a dish like this so feel free to broaden your horizons and substitute things on this list. Read more

I’m sure we have all been there.

You and your partner dragging your bodies home after a long day of working. You pass out on the couch for a few minutes and then try to decide what to eat for dinner. Let’s not forget the challenge of figuring out whose turn it is to cook. But it has nothing on the war on what to eat. You want one thing, they want something else. You bicker for a while, maybe throw things back and forth. Eventually one of you gives in to the other and then all is well…for the moment. Read more

Brace yourself. You are about to have food-gasm.

A delicious treat for yourself after a long day of working out, or maybe even a sweet dessert at a small dinner party. If you are on a healthy kick, I definitely recommend getting low fat oreos, and lighten up on the sugar and vanilla. Or if you want to mix and match and experiment with flavor, use some of the different flavor oreos. Read more

For everyone who are constantly on the go, check out the food truck “Roti Rolls”. Cory Burke is the cook and owner. So you know you’re going to get the best possible service. They opened in 2010, and won Charleston’s “Best Food Truck Award” ever since. They are locally sourced, and use locally grown produce. Burke describes the food at Roti Rolls as “Korean Caribbean Southern Fusion type.”

They have dishes for every type of eater. Beef lovers, pork lovers, chicken lovers, and even for vegans. I chose to have the “Thurman Merman”. I was great, with a nice spicy kick. One of my favorite side dishes is the Creole Mac and Cheese. Yep! I said it! Be sure to get yourself a great pick-me-up at Roti Rolls, and check them out at http://www.eatrotirolls.com.

“Good Mood Food.” Even the term just makes me hungry! But what exactly is it? On the surface it just means, food that makes you feel good. Well, that is true because food makes us all feel good!

Ahhhh The taste of fresh fruits: Mango, cherries, pineapples, blueberries, apricots,image apples, melons, grapefruits, limes, and lemons. Did you know your body smells and taste like what you consume? Ask yourself this question: Are you sweet and ripe or are you a salty and bitter person? Who are you eating and what’s eating you?
