A creamy pumpkin curry sauce is tossed with zucchini noodles for a tasty meatless dish.

This dish combines two of my current obsessions: pumpkin and zucchini noodles. It’s light, easy and makes a great lunch.

Stuffed! is a popular food truck in San Diego, known for their stuffed burgers. If you’re feeling ravenous, this is definitely the place to go for lunch. In addition to gourmet burgers, they also offer other fun and comforting dishes like macaroni and cheese, tater tots, and fried Oreos.


I had my eye on the Boom! burger, piled high with mac n’ cheese, peppered smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles & Stuffed! sauce.

The burger patty was cooked to a medium. The creamy mac n’ cheese added flavor and a fun factor the burger.



Tamsui, also known as Danshui, is a small city in northern Taiwan that is a popular tourist attraction because of its historic importance (in the 19th century it was the center for shipping).

During my last trip to Taiwan, we spent an afternoon there. The sleepy village doesn’t have too much going on, but it has some nice views of the water and a lot of tourist shops and food stalls.

I had to get one of the gigantic soft serve ice cream cones. There are many vendors that sell them, so you can’t miss it. They come in several different flavors, though we chose vanilla. It’s pretty amazing how high they can stack the cone.
