I have a love-hate relationship with winter. I choose cold weather over sweltering heat any day. However, I really miss the long daylight in summer.


Commuting home from work in the dark dampens my enthusiasm for doing anything when I get home.  Hence, when it comes to cooking, my motto lately has been the more hands off the better ha!

This means minimal chopping and sautéing by the stove.

The means my oven has been working overdrive.

This 5-ingredient garlic and sriracha grilled chicken is based on this recipe. I love the simplicity of the original recipe and its versatility to adapt based on the ingredients I have on hand.  My Sriracha sauce was down to its last hoorah so to make space for a new bottle, I decided to create a marinade based on Sriracha sauce.

  1. I just made this using honey and a bit of sugar instead of brown sugar and it was amazing. I paired it with a salad that was mostly lettuce with mangos and avocado. The dressing was a simple lemon garlic sugar salt pepper mix. I love it and will do it again. Yummy. Clean. Perfect.
