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…

Toulouse Sausage White Bean Stew

So this Whole30 program/diet thingy that I keep seeing everywhere..what’s up with that? Hats off to you if you tried it, it works and you love it! I am not dismissing it any way and I did think about it for a fleeting couple of seconds but there’s something about a set of rules and…

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Beef Chili

When I wrote my first post in April 2015, I was pretty thrilled to be starting something new and seeing where it would go. Maybe meeting other bloggers on the way and getting to know a little bit about them and forming online blogships 🙂 Getting out of my zone and throwing some creativity into…

Stir-Fried Eggplant, Peppers and Tofu

I love brunch and being lazy on a Sunday. I always eat a lot of great food and desserts when I go out to brunch (thankfully, I don’t have brunch every week). I’m not exaggerating when I say a lot! I don’t regret it though. At this moment, my lazy ass is sitting here in…

Filipino Pork Adobo with Mango Salsa

Testing, testing… Listen to me! This is one of the best things that will happen to you! You need to drop everything and make this! Don’t be put off by the number of ingredients. It is not that time consuming. Besides, what could be more important than this 🙂 I made it last night and…

Thai Red Curry with Kabocha Squash

I do love this time of year–gourd season! Candy corn! Pumpkin time! Apple cider! Squash here there and everywhere! I have cooked with butternut squash but not with any other kind so I decided to get some acorn and kabocha squash from the Farmers Market. They look pretty..but… Don’t let the looks deceive you because they…

Chicken Wings for the Soul!

We are back! Main course number 2 for the Fourth of July feast–that passed. Yes, I know but I have been behind so bear with me. I need to catch up and put all this good stuff out there so you can salivate and drool and run to the kitchen to make it. I rarely…
