Asian Bok Choy Pizza

So when the idea for bok choy pizza struck me the other day, I figured the first thing I’d do was google and see if anyone else had done it and had a good looking combination.  I was pretty excited when a search brought up my site first until I realized that I, of course, [...]

The post-computer disaster food round-up

First I went to Pittsburgh for a few days where I wasn’t cooking, so there was no food.  Then my computer started doing wacky things…bad wacky.  It got worse and worse until it hit rock-bottom, became completely useless, and I had to wipe everything out and reinstall the operating system.  So that’s my story and [...]

Green Garlic Baked Ziti

If there is one dish that I always associate with comfort food, it’s baked ziti.  There’s just something so darn fulfilling about oven-baked pasta, I crave it constantly, and I’m always looking for good alternatives to the cheese laden version I got started on.  Enter this dish. Green garlic was the vegetable du jour at [...]

Potato, Corn and Avocado Chaat

I’m convinced that everyone on this planet has a shopping problem.  A lot of girls have a shoe problem  (I know some guys that have a shoe problem too).  Or a purse problem.  Many of my favorite people (including myself, I admit it) have a book problem.  But my biggest weakness?  Ingredients.  Whenever I’m out [...]

Some Fridge Clearing, Cheribundi and a Hike

I’m totally enjoying all this Spring Sun…and not so enjoying the spring rain, but it’ll pass, I hope.  In honor of all the great weather, we hiked up a local “mountain” the other day and I took a couple pictures to share.  The first is the view from a little more then half way up [...]

Shiso/Edamame Salad and a Creme Brulee Giveaway!!!

It’s finally time for that review and giveaway that I’ve been teasing…but I’m going to make you wait just a bit longer while I talk a bit about this salad I put together last night.  The local farmer’s market had it’s opening day this weekend, and of course I had to make it out there [...]
