It’s A Wrap!

December 5th, 2006 · 7 Comments

I love summer rolls.  The cold chewy texture of rice paper wrapped around a little package of refreshing flavors is so fun to eat and pleasing to the palate.  There are endless combinations and the fun is in creating rolls that match your tastes.  I was inspired to make these vegetable rolls after I enjoyed [...]

Hummus That Makes You Go Hmmm…

(This one really couldn’t be simpler.)   A few months ago Kareem and I joined our friends Dan and Alicia for brunch in their neighborhood.  Since Kareem and I had never really explored that 'hood Dan, a fellow foodie, gave me a tip on a good gourmet market in the area.  On our way back [...]

Asian Persuasion

April 27th, 2006 · 6 Comments
