Jicama Dumpling with Pork

When I was growing up, one of my favorite snacks to eat is singkamas or jicama drizzled with salt, chopped chili, and vinegar. It’s sour, but the sweet, juicy taste of jicama balanced it.

One of the Best Sundays Ever!

Great food is best shared with great people. So even though you’re on a diet, making the decision to make the day a “Cheat Day” is easy.  No qualms at all. Besides, nothing is better than free food! Hahaha! So I’ve been a two-day cheat day (not a first but not definitely the last, for sure) as November 7th marks the  ...
