    New design

    After over 3 years of presenting this blog using a mostly out-of-the-box WordPress theme, I finally figured out what I wanted to do instead. Presenting the new Get Cooking design! I use my recipes all the time, and I generally look them up on my phone so I can see them in the kitchen. I […]

  • Happy 2nd Birthday to Us!

    Happy 2nd Birthday to Us!

    We’ve been a little quiet here due to the holidays (Chanukah followed shortly after Thanksgiving this year) and then a rather unpleasant bought of the flu, but we simply can’t ignore this very important day! Get Cooking’s 2nd birthday! We’ve  learned so much in the last two years, and hopefully you have too. We’ve explored […]

  • Want more Get Cooking?

    A few months ago, I added a little feature to our sidebar here that pulls in interesting food related articles we are reading.

  • Mabo Dofu, Featured on Just Bento

    Just Bento published a guest post by yours truly this morning. The post features my take on Mabo Dofu, a Chinese turned Japanese dish that I fell in love with some years ago.

    Picnicking under the cherry blossoms

    After a long week of packing, moving and unpacking, eating mostly instant foods or takeout, it was refreshing to have a day off to enjoy the weather and some fresh, unprocessed produce before returning to work tomorrow. Because we noticed many of the cherry blossoms in our neighborhood blooming, we thought it would be a […]

    Posts will be slow until we’re finished moving

    Things have been a bit slow here at Get Cooking because Jen and I are in the process of moving to an apartment of our very own. We have mostly been cooking our favorite staples on repeat and enjoying delicious lunch boxes for days on end. While it has been tasty and comforting, there has […]
