Aroy Thai

If you are looking for fantastic food near the University of Maryland, College Park, I highly recommend Aroy Thai. I found this nugget shortly after Morgan started attending the College Park Nursery School this past January. Good Thai food is hard to resist... especially when it is so darn convenient... It's one block from the preschool and directly across the street from the UMD campus so Morgan and I often stop for lunch after school and then make a delivery to Daddy's office.

I always order a lunch special which includes your choice of either spring rolls or Tom Yum soup and a soda. Depending on the dish I often choose the seafood option because it is consistently tender. This momma grew up in Maine, eating her first pieces of lobster at 6 months, so I have very high standards when it comes to fresh seafood. As you may have found it is very easy to overcook shrimp and calamari, but not at Aroy Thai.

My two favorite dishes here are the Pad Ka Pow and Pad Kee Mao (otherwise known as Drunken Noodles).

If you love Thai food and would like to learn how to make it at home I have phenomenal authentic recipes for red curry schicken, spring rolls, and papaya salad.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!

Here are my go-to recipes for guacamole and restaurant style salsa.

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.  

I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!

First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!
