Baked Cauliflower and Farro

In Washington, DC today it was a beautiful 71 degrees F! in February! We took a scenic 2 hour walk and just before we made it home, my favorite, friendly black and white cat Thomas was sunbathing and taking a nap on a car. I called to him and he came down to greet me…

Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Coconut Curry

I have been away. I have been occupied and preoccupied and trying to be a better version of me, which is much harder than I thought. I last posted a recipe right before Thanksgiving and now Christmas Eve is upon us. For some reason I could not stop watching the iZombie episodes. Story of a…

Panang Curry with Tofu & Vegetables

I don’t know about you but when I am in the kitchen cooking, I listen to music. Usually, it is Deep Purple or Pink Floyd but I also mix it up and simply put shuffle on Pandora. Music makes the cooking experience even better because it is like food for the mind. You find yourself…
