Coconut cookies

Soft and chewy coconut cookies. You can’t have just one. If you like coconut and you like cookies, you’re most likely like these. I added macadamia to the mix to add some extra goodness to it. The dogs wanted some but probably not the healthiest for them so they didn’t get any.

Tilapia With Caper and Parsley

My husband, Henry, wanted to buy some tilapia filet on the fly while we were shopping at Costco. I don’t often cook tilapia but when I do, I buy them whole at the Vietnamese market and steam them. I wanted to try something new this time. I browse the internet for some recipes and came upon this one on Real…

Best Salad Ever

Have you ever ate something that was so good you dream about it?  This Thai steak salad at Houston’s is by far my favorite salad of all time.  There’s mango, cherry tomatoes, avocados, noodles, steak, basil, peanuts, carrots and a sweet salad dressing sauce. Somehow they all blend together nicely.
