Cheese loves salty meat. And so do I.

October 14, 2012


Well hello world! It’s been a while… Summer happened and (I admit) that blogging became less of a priority. Not that I don’t love this blog… or cooking… or writing about cooking… It’s just that after 8 months of winter in New England, I tend to spend as much time away from the computer in […]

A Healthier Vehicle for Meat Sauce: Spaghetti Squash

May 7, 2012


My favorite dishes include fried chicken, grilled steaks, lasagna and the crispy deliciousness of pork rinds (fried pork fat). Basically, I love anything fried, high in cholesterol and packed in carbohydrates. Not exactly a healthy combination! And – as my mom reminds me – not at all figure flattering! So to avoid heart disease and […]

Eating Well In The ATL

April 18, 2012


When my husband and I boarded our AirTran flight this past Friday for Atlanta, GA, we didn’t know what to expect when we landed. We were on our way to visit our good friends, Mike and Catie, who traded in their New England lifestyle for a little bit of southern comfort. Atlanta had never been […]

Grilled Chicken, Fresh Beer & Cornhole = Suburban Fun

April 12, 2012


For as long as I can remember, I have always dreamed of having an outdoor kitchen with a fully stocked bar, some taps for the homebrews, and a killer grill. Growing up in Southwest Virginia, the grill was fired up almost year-round. My mom made the most amazing steaks… There was nothing better than the […]

Ode to Rincon: Fresh Fish Tacos

March 12, 2012


Spring is on it’s way! Who cares that the groundhog predicted more weeks of winter… what does he know? He’s a groundhog. All I care about is the fact that neared 70 degrees today in Boston and I can smell the soil melting. Soon Bostonians will be laying out in bikinis at the public gardens, […]

A weekend of dinners.

March 7, 2012


My husband and I have been together since we were 18 and have been pretty much inseparable since. I can probably count on one hand the number of weekends we’ve spent away from each other over the past decade. And of those times, it’s usually me that is being called away from home for work, […]

Warm Spinach and Cous Cous + Orange Soy Salmon

February 15, 2012


New England winters conjure images of snow capped hills, children romping through the park with rosy noses, and a cozy stew simmering over an open fire. Year after year, I look forward to the winter months not because I love to ski (downhill sports are NOT my thing), but because I love the hearty dishes […]

Happy Hindustani Holidays!

Originally posted on The Red Thread:
This Christmas was the first that Brian and I have ever spent together, and an unusual Christmas it was.  Christmas Eve, we feasted on Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Yes, you can get KFC in India, but instead of providing mashed potatoes, gravy and biscuits in the “Family Feast” menu option,…
