Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast

Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast

A Thanksgiving recipe. I know. Already! But today is November 1st, and if I want to stay on track with all that I want to share with you before Thanksgiving comes with its turkey and sides and leftovers, gotta start early.  Bear with me, and […]

Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Friends! We’ve made it to Friday.  We all deserve a 30-minute or less meal, and here’s the one. I’ve been on a soup kick and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So as much as I bombard you with ice cream recipes […]

Chicken & Cauliflower Soup

Chicken & Cauliflower Soup

Hey, fall. You’re here! It’s been such crappy weather the last few days. Cold and rainy, they’re the kind of days that make me want to sit on the couch and eat a lot of bread.  I did allow myself that one night, but then […]

Greek Lamb and Rice

Greek Lamb and Rice

I’m a lunch packer and I always have been, ever since the days when Baba would come home and comment on how the admins in his office would spend $12 a day on lunch when they were only making $12 an hour or less when he, […]

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

I’ve been searching for bowls of comfort these days over bowls of greens, and chili, obviously, comes to mind.  It’s rare that I ever try anyone else’s chili over Mom’s when I want something basic because, while everyone INSISTS that their particular chili recipe is […]

Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing)

Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing)

It’s September and while we all know that salad season is winding down to make way for chilis and soups and all the rib-sticking goodness, I’m giving you this salad because really it’s a salad for all seasons.  Salads are seasonal; the spring varieties tout […]

A Weekend Roast

A Weekend Roast

Despite the fact that I love to eat and I love to cook, sometimes I find myself uninspired when the weekend hits. Because that tends to be when the kitchen magic you see happens, a sort of cook’s block akin to writer’s block, isn’t a […]

Mango Coconut Salad

Mango Coconut Salad

This recipe was supposed to be part of another recipe (coming later this week) but I didn’t want to get lost in the shuffle because it’s so good. I often make really delicious salads (salsa? salad? what’s the difference?*) for garnishes that can really stand […]

Mole-Q Chicken Tacos

Mole-Q Chicken Tacos

I’ve been in Ann Arbor about five months or so, and I can’t say that there’s too much about the city of Chicago that I miss. Maybe it’s because I’ve been back almost a handful of times since I’ve moved, with the next one already […]

Poached Eggs in Spicy Mexican-Style Tomato Sauce

Poached Eggs in Spicy Mexican-Style Tomato Sauce

Since it’s still Birthday Week, I’m exercising my prerogative to eat all of my favorite foods. While I’ve already hit up sandwiches, some things barbecue, Doritos (seriously, my love) and all the ice cream (we’re working on 2x a day at this point- thank God […]
