Is it antithetical to get home from the gym and bake banana nut bread? We didn’t think so.
One night, I decided to surprise Justin with a Puerto Rican feast. The stuff in the middle: Mofungo. Mashed plantains with ham, garlic, olive oil, and seasonings.

Baked slices of potato with cheese, bacon, and scallions. Works great as an appetizer or even a side dish.
Trifles are just about the easiest dessert one can make, so why not add some complexity by soaking your cake in booze? This one alternated layers of Kahlua and Amaretto.
A flank steak cooked very rare. Seasoned with my go-to marinade of soy sauce, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, crushed red pepper, and black pepper.
