I just came up with this theory that all established recipes made with three ingredients or less are delicious. You want examples? Peanut Butter and Jelly Grilled Cheese S’mores Mac & Cheese Cereal & Milk Bagel & Cream Cheese Quesadillas And now, roasted salsa. This is one of those recipes that won’t complicate your grocery list, it won’t break the bank, and it takes almost zero effort to make. AND it fulfills my three ingredients or less theory. Just try […]

Well, I guess this is kind of another way to have summer for longer than we are allowed by the seasons. Smores are pretty much a summer staple, but, for whatever reason, no one ever eats them any other time of the year (uh, I know the reason actually, it’s called cold. no one camps in the cold). If you’ve never had a smore, and to be honest it’s difficult to imagine anyone growing up without ever eating one, (but […]

Whenever I sit down at a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant I always scan the menu and my eyes immediately fixate on lamb burgers. I love the rich, juicy taste of the heavily spiced meat and I especially love the tangy taste of tzatziki sauce. Now, I didn’t grow up eating a lot of dairy based products. I actually didn’t like cheese, yogurt, or what have you, because I learned when I was small that most dairy products are essentially old milk […]

The UK national academy of science compiled a list of the 20 most significant inventions in culinary history, and, for whatever reason, the Magic Bullet didn’t make the cut. But we’ll share their results anyway! So what was the most significant invention in the history of food and drink? The oven or the toaster? The pot or the spork? Not surprisingly, it was refrigeration. Refrigeration has helped people since the mid-18th century to not only store food, but keep it […]

Remember Gogurt? Remember when you wanted to eat it, but it was warm from sitting in your mom’s car after a long day of errands? Remember when you stuck it in the freezer to get it cold faster? And then forgot about it and discovered it the next day!? That’s what all of those new-fangled create-your-own-yogurt places remind me of. But sometimes, I’m too lazy to walk down the five flights of stairs to the place down the street. It’s a lot easier […]

Duyen made some virgin piña coladas recently that looked delicious. And it seems we are on similar wavelengths because I made some, too. Only I like rum. Quite a lot actually. Also, I wasn’t smart enough to look up an actual piña colada recipe, so I just made it up. We had pineapple. And coconut milk. Seemed easy enough, right? Not going to lie, it took a couple of tries. A lot of re-blends, if you will. So I don’t […]

Sometimes I buy avocados to add to sandwiches that I pack for lunch. Sometimes I get lazy and don’t pack lunch. Sometimes the bread goes bad and I have two avocados left. What do I do? Well, when life makes it so you put off packing lunch and you have ripe avocados, you make guacamole! Spicy guacamole to be exact. Remember when Alton Brown’s Good Eats was new and quirky? I miss those days. But I love this easy guacamole […]

Oh Summer. We loved you. We will always love you. Some things just epitomize summer in the best of ways. I love summer more than any other season by far and I love everything that goes along with summer, too. Long days, warm nights, sunscreen, sandy feet, popsicles, sticky hands. And watermelon. Is there anything more summery than a juicy watermelon dripping down your face and arms? I’m pretty sure there isn’t. So, to celebrate the end of Summer, I give […]

Canned and dried fruit? Rice cakes? We all know that potato chips and cans of sugary soft drinks are terrible for your body, but a new article on Huffington Post’s health blog Healthy Living argues that even rice cakes and granola bars are bad snacks. Sure, chocolatey and peanut-buttery sugar-ladden granola bars might not be great for your health, but what about the healthier granola bar alternatives that are high in fiber, healthy grains, and protein? Read the article, go […]
