ShareSince my last post I’ve done a rather large overhaul on our pantry and our fridge. So far, so good; we’ve been able to eat mostly whole foods and from scratch meals, aside from two nights when we were out (see my comment about not being too nuts about the resolution). In my excitement (ok, […]

ShareWhat is it about curry that strikes fear in the hearts of so many meat and potatoes Americans? Just the mention of it makes my father get twitchy and start looking for the exit. I think perhaps people just assume that curry is synonymous with thick, heavy, saucy, coconut-y dishes that smell vaguely like a […]

ShareWell, look what the cat drug in…the dog days of summer have finally arrived here in the Northeast, and the concrete jungle that is Manhattan in August is as hazy as a college student on holiday in Amsterdam.  Given that our air-conditioning chug-a-lugs slowly to life on even the coolest of days, my oven has […]

ShareFew things strike fear into my heart more than onion dip from a can, or beer cheese out of a plastic tub. Why serve over-processed, store bought gunk when it’s so easy to whip up delicious and healthy snacks right in your own kitchen? After all, we’re not in college anymore (and for those who […]

ShareI love shrimp, but I’m always looking for a way to spice them up a bit.  Hailing from Baltimore, I grew up with peel and eat shrimp that were spicy from the gallons of Old Bay they’d been cooked in (those of us with origins in the Chesapeake area would likely bleed Old Bay.  It […]

ShareI’m usually more than a little sad about the return to reality post-vacation.  Particularly if said break involved the beach.  Yet, while my mind is telling me one thing, my body is screaming quite another.  After 4 days of barbeque, beer and daily trips to the ice cream shop, my arteries are clogged as hell […]

ShareWeeknight meals should strike a balance between healthy and quick.  Especially Monday.  I’m usually still full from my “weekend eating” by Monday night.  That’s why these Greek turkey burgers are such a staple around here.  They’re made with only breast meat turkey (the regular ground turkey actually has about as much fat as lean ground […]
