Minestrone Salad

This is my third videoblog post.  If you are reading this through email or RSS, please click through to see the video.  Thanks!   When I was younger I recall pasta salads being a staple item come summer time.  They were ubiquitous at summer barbecues and beach parties.  I haven't encountered a pasta salad in [...]

Tempeh Each Day Keeps The Doctor Away!

August 1st, 2006 · 7 Comments

It's true that there are lots of healthy benefits to be gained by eating tempeh which, if you're not familiar with the stuff, is made from fermented soybeans.  I always found both tofu and tempeh to be dry, bland, and lacking in flavor but I didn't want this to be the reason that I was [...]

A Sure Bet Vinaigrette

July 30th, 2006 · 6 Comments

I love salads and one accompanies most dinners that I prepare.  I love to enjoy my salad after the main course as I find it to be a lovely finish to the meal.  My everyday dressing is simple and fast but I have to admit that making other variations are pretty simple too and they [...]

One Corny Recipe

July 19th, 2006 · 6 Comments

I had promised Kareem a cooking class over a year ago for his birthday and I had long since forgotten about it but Kareem sure hadn't.  A few weeks ago I finally delivered on the long-overdue birthday gift and we visited Chef's Inc. in Los Angeles.  Things have been so busy here that I've yet [...]

Menage a Trois

July 11th, 2006 · 7 Comments

You're getting a three-for-one post here as each element of this dinner is blog worthy in my opinion.  One of my staple meals is this simple salmon with lentils dish which I like to serve with the tzatziki sauce that I recently posted about.  Alongside I prepared my spinach salad with everyday honey balsamic dressing [...]

A Delicious Mouthful

July 9th, 2006 · 7 Comments

One of my all-time favorite meals is a simple one of bircher muesli accompanied by some hearty bread and delicious cheeses.  This is what I would enjoy as a light supper on summer evenings with my Grossmami in Switzerland.  Now, you might be wondering what this bircher muesli thing is that I'm talking about (pronounced [...]

What…er…Melon?

June 18th, 2006 · 5 Comments

Although it isn’t officially summer according to the calendar, the weather has gotten significantly warmer and I’m seeing all the signs at my grocery store and local market that summer is in fact here. Today I bought a big round emerald striped watermelon for a mere $3.98. They were in a large bin out there [...]

Doing the Can-Can

June 17th, 2006 · 8 Comments

I’m already starting to feel that summer laziness kicking in. It’s that feeling of just wanting to lie on the couch after a long day of work – still hot and sticky from the journey home. I find that I don’t have a very big appetite on hot summer days and I definitely don’t want [...]

Table for One, Please

May 31st, 2006 · 8 Comments

In general I enjoy food and cooking as a shared experience. I like to cook meals that elicit a positive response and now that I have a blog where I write about the food that I cook I make an extra attempt at making meals that are presentable and blog-worthy. My boyfriend is definitely the [...]

I’ve Bean Inspired

May 23rd, 2006 · 3 Comments

My inspiration for dinner this evening came in several parts. First, I happened across some beautifully ripe mangos at the store. How could I resist when they were also on sale??? Then, my boyfriend Kareem expressed to me his craving for some beans. My vision was complete when I opened up my refrigerator and found [...]
