Thanks to my friend Sharm for this delicious pumpkin pie recipe! When I tried this recipe out, I substituted the buttermilk with egg nog and omitted the egg. I also didn’t have brown sugar in the house so I substituted white sugar, using about half the measurement (1/4 cup). Finally, I added 2 tbsp white […]

Subtly sweet and simple to prepare, the jicama root makes for a satisfying, healthy snack. This Mexican tuber looks a bit like a turnip, and is also considered an alternative to water chestnuts in stir fry recipes. If you haven’t already added this delightful little delicacy to your kitchen shelf, why not pick one up the […]

On my new kick to write about whatever food I may be thinking about rather than trying to churn out new fusion recipes while on my weird “non-aggravating” diet, I offer to you the humble Honeycrisp apple. Raw, whole, and usually organic in my experience, this apple is absolutely, by far, the best apple I […]

Okay, sorry I couldn’t come up with a better title. Truth is, I haven’t posted in such a long time, I think I am beginning to forget how.

While living in the Republic of Georgia, I was introduced to a new way of seasoning meats and vegetables–with walnuts. Eggplant, fish, chicken, pork, and beef are all dressed with absolutely delicious walnut sauce, usually accented with cinnamon and cloves. It’s a completely different experience!!

(Note: She found this place through http://11870.com/–good for all kinds of businesses and restaurants, anywhere you are!) Although the restaurant was not far from our flats, we […]

Now that I’m back in the US, I am much more wary of the food I buy at the supermarket, and I have been doing a bit of research, some of which I will be posting in the next few weeks. So I was thrilled earlier this week when I found organic strawberries at Whole […]

Springtime brings us one of my favorite faux fruits: the strawberry.  This “accessory fruit”–or vegetable, depending on how you define it–is, in fact, the swollen tip of the stamen, or the base where the flower grows.  The seeds, or more accurately, the achenes, that attach themselves to this swollen bit are more than just annoying […]

Tomatoes and Avocados as sweets?  Yes, these “faux veggies” deserve a second look. Their versatility practically begs us to play around and find new ways to use them. Who’s to say there aren’t other potentially fantastic “double agents” just waiting to be discovered? Another of my favorite tapas from Mercado de la Reina (see Sobrasada […]

I made it out to Berlin recently to visit friends.  I thought that, without a doubt, I would walk away with some new wonderful currywurst addiction.  Instead, I fell in love with Kartoffelsalat, or German potato salad, which I picked up as a side dish one damp and chilly afternoon at Curry 36, an apparently […]
