At the end of my last post, I promised another “Thai” recipe. And yes, I know, tacos are not Thai but just hear me out.
Our first day in Thailand, we were excited to get out and experience the town and eat real Thai food. We walked around searching for the perfect [...]
wa `alaykumu s-salāmu. For delivery please?
Ah yes, Madam.
Chicken Tikka. Lamb chops, eight pieces. One hummus. One yogurt salad.
Is that it for tonight?
Yes, thank you.
And that is the conversation I have at least once a week with our favorite nearby hole-in-the-wall delivery place. It is inexpensive, hot, [...]
A friend of mine showed me a farm stand not too far from where we live. I have really come to love going there. The produce is always fresh and is much cheaper than anywhere I’ve found on the island. That’s where I got those oodles of strawberries C decided [...]
Do you ever watch food shows, like Chopped or Top Chef and try to come up with what dish you would make if you had those ingredients or that challenge? My husband and I do all the time- actually we do whenever the kids’ aren’t playing commando with the TV remote. [...]
When I made my blackening spice blend I had this salad in mind. I wanted to make a light and healthy salad for dinner that was still tasty and satisfying. While one might think that I was doing this because it’s just after the New Year when [...]
I usually don’t make anything with Thanksgiving leftovers. I don’t mean they go in the trash, I mean we eat the same meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until the food is gone (which usually takes a few days around here.) In years past, it’s been just my husband and I to devour [...]
This post was supposed to be a guest post by my husband featuring his wonderful Thanksgiving turkey but I think we’ve both just awoken from our turkey comas, and he unfortunately awoke with a cold. But I had planned on making stock from the left over turkey carcass anyway. In most of my [...]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it’s Wednesday when I’m posting this “make ahead Monday” dish. To be honest, I’ve been so busy playing catch up that we’ve been ordering delivery from our favorite kabob place more than I’ve been cooking. But better late than never, right? I’m going to keep this post short [...]
I picked up the latest copy of Food Network Magazine this weekend and of course, I bookmarked tons of recipes. One of their features was for different versions of a DIY hot pocket. I used to love those things as a kid; my favorite was pepperoni Pizza. I knew [...]
I think that “Mexi-Monday” will have to become make-ahead Monday. Now that Ramadan has ended, life has picked up in our host country. We are able to get out more, meet new friends and enjoy our surroundings. We’ve been getting home late after a day of play dates, coffees with friends, and ballet and music lessons. [...]
