Easy International Recipes that are healthy for the at-home cook. Travel to a new destination without leaving the kitchen by cooking an authentic meal from across the globe to enjoy a journey of new flavors.
I love international food and exploring the world with its variety of foods. I'm fascinated by how a family recipe is passed down in different regions of the world to create their own version of a national dish.
Yet each culture influences global recipes that food lovers will then visit the country to explore culture and history. Food tells the story of each country's unique taste to share with one another around the world.
Most of the recipes on the blog have been given from family and friends or from my travel adventures. Which then I alter a bit to try making them a little healthier for more tasty recipes. Sometimes I just want to see if I can replicate the good food from a restaurant that I visited or street food I have eaten. My favorite memories always have food involved with friends or family just like so many of us. So follow me to my next destination in searching for the perfect bite!
The first stop is American food and how diverse each region gives you a different flavor. The United States gives you different flavors from state to state. One thing that I love about this country is the comforting dishes.
