  • Bittersweet’s Chocolate Chickpea Spread

    Bittersweet’s Chocolate Chickpea Spread

    Move over Nutella, I’ve found a chocolate spread that’s richer, thicker, cheaper and easier to get my hands on. I’m not sure I’ll ever look back.

  • Lemon Pickles

    Lemon Pickles

    This post has been a long time coming. I really wanted to make sure I liked these little guys before posting them. Last night, we finished the jar of lemon pickles we made around the time we had Iron Chef Lemons at work. That’s how many lemons there were – it took over three months […]

  • Apple Pies

    Apple Pies

    For me, fall means apple picking. And apple picking means apple pies! The minute the weather turned crisp, we grabbed some friends and headed upstate to pick as many apples as we could carry. Empires and Jonagolds were ripe in abundance so we filled up mostly on those. Empires have a pure white flesh and […]

  • Iron Chef: Lemon!

    Iron Chef: Lemon!

    At the beginning of the month, my workplace hosted a large event. The centerpieces at event contained lemons. After the event, lo and behold, my entire office was awash with lemons.

  • Chicken Gyros

    Chicken Gyros

    After Passover ended, I immediately rushed out and got some delicious thick flatbread at the supermarket. One of the last nights in our old apartment, I had a major craving for gyros, but realized that, except for the bread, I had almost no proper ingredients. I had no lamb or beef, and not a clue […]

  • Almond Milk

    Almond Milk

    After a recent trip to the local wholesale warehouse, we ended up several pounds of almonds, pecans and walnuts on our hands. Emily over at Dragonfly: Tales from the Phantom Rickshaw posted a recipe for almond milk that sounded like such a simple and tasty use for almonds, I just had to try it. Good […]

  • Happy Birthday to me!

    Happy Birthday to me!

    This year I opted for a simple birthday. I really just wanted to stay home and relax yesterday because this month has been and will continue to be a busy one for me and all of my friends. I haven’t been cooking as much this week, so there won’t be recipes for a little while, […]
