When I’m low on sodium and potassium, I like to mix up some electrolyte punch. I drink it like it’s Gatorade®. It’s cheap, doesn’t have sugar, and might be why I don’t get headaches while doing the low-carb thing.

Lite salt is the secret ingredient here. It uses potassium to dilute the salt for those that need to cut back…perfect someone like me that needs to boost potassium intake.

This recipe is inspired by the refreshingly simple salsa served at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Utah. No, it’s not Costa Vida or Cafe Rio—It’s a small family-owned restaurant in Provo, Utah and this might just be the actual recipe.

Homemade ice cream sandwiches

A few years ago on a trip to Southern California, my cousin took me to Diddy Riese. It’s a shop in Westwood, famous for its ice cream sandwiches. Now, the smell of fresh-baked cookies makes me crave a big bite of ice cream sandwich and it’s one of the easiest things to make at home.

Simple crêpe recipe

This is a recipe I got in 2005 from the monthly magazine of a local grocery store while living in Northern France. It’s simple and has been one of my go-to recipes for years.

Street cart fries from Spitz

Spitz is one of my favorite places to meet up with friends. Street cart fries are topped with garlic aioli, feta cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, olives, and pepperoncini.
