Tamarind Chutney

  You know what I love about going out for Indian cuisine? Tamarind Chutney. Seriously, the sauce that accompanies pakoras, samosas and battered paneer is like the best sweet and tangy dipping sauce there is, hands down. As yummy as Tamarind Chutney is, it is so very difficult to take a […]

Hagrid’s Pumpkin Patch Rock Cakes

Happy Hallowe’en!  To celebrate this occasion, I, along with some fellow Food Bloggers, decided to create a dinner party fit for the season.  We created a lovely themed Harry Potter feast that would put the food served at Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington’s Death Day to shame (although, really, any food would do so). My contribution? […]

Turtle Cheesecake

Okay, I have a problem. I have an insatiable love for chocolate… I can’t hide from it, so I have full-on embraced my problem. Take the other night for example, on a whim I made a chocolate-y, caramel-y Turtle Cheesecake. It was wonderful and glorious and everything perfect.

Mapo Tofu

What is it about food that brings together family and friends? The older I get the more I realize just how much relationships and food go hand-in-hand. Currently, my social gatherings are more centered around food than ever before. I honestly cannot think of an occasion with friends and family that […]

Cheddar Ale Soup with Ham and Potato

  Goodbye August, Hello September! For the record, I am part of #TeamFall and always have been, long before Pumpkin Spice Lattes and chunky cable knit sweaters were in style. As a kid, September meant going back to school, fall camping and hunting season with my dad. As an adult […]

Summer Harvest Chili

Ah, summer. Who doesn’t love long, warm, sun-filled days of lounging and resting. Unfortunately, not all summer days are sunshine filled. Summer storms can dampen even the brightest mood and force you to forgo your BBQ plans. Don’t fear! You can still enjoy the tastes of summer by reaping the rewards […]

A Frugal Kitchen: Rules for Saving Money and Eating Well

  There is something to be said for frugality in the kitchen. A commitment to eating frugally, without compromising on nutrition and balance can be difficult. Fortunately, frugal home cooks are not alone in this challenge. Much like eating a gluten-free, vegan or organic, committing yourself to a frugal mindset can often […]

How to Eat Well Without Going Broke in Paris

Paris is a city like no other. Paris is, at its core, an eclectic melting pot that is influenced by both old tradition and progressive thought. The overall vibe of the city is both chaotic and relaxed. At the heart of this mixed pulse is the cuisine. Much like the […]
