Recipe: Sautéed Veal with Corn and Tomatoes

Summer is slowly but surely coming upon us, and I have discovered a gem. Wegman’s, an upstate New York grocery chain, has opened a location in Chesnut Hill. Oh man, is it worth the drive. The selection and quality of my groceries has skyrocketed, as this store is a monster. Literally huge and filled with…

Recipe: Pork Schnitzel

Being a food blogger sometimes has some major perks. Like opening my door to a box full of bags of free Pretzel Crips. Awesome. After mowing my way through a few of the packages, I decided it would be cool to cook with the pretzels in a different way. What’s a better way to use…

Recipe: Roast Beef and Endive

Now that springtime is FINALLY here (for a while there I thought winter would never end), its time for fun light salads that are easy to make and fill you up after a run, or in my case, a challenging yoga class. Endive is a great lettuce, totally under-utilized if you ask me, so I…

Recipe: Greek Style Shrimp and Feta

This recipe is awesome. I made this for The Russian when we first started dating, and I’m still making it. Every so often he’ll get a gleam in his eye and ask me to make him this dish. It’s that memorable. It’s also that simple. Juicy shrimp, salty feta, and a hearty tomato sauce is…

Recipe: Classic Greek Salad with Steak

Who doesn’t love a Greek salad? No one, that’s who. I personally like mine without lettuce, a simpler salad that lets the veggies shine (and the traditional salad is without lettuce also, so it’s more accurate). Thanks to Food Network for inspiring the dressing, but you can really use any dressing you choose (or just…

Recipe: Simple Tomato Soup

Even though its March, it certainly doesn’t feel like it. It’s still cold and I heard that there’s gonna be snow this week. Lame. My mom always used to tell me that “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” All I know is, I better not still be wearing my winter…

Recipe: Moms Roasted Potatoes

What a crazy month it’s been. Besides picking up a third job, I’m moving this week and decided to visit my parents home in New York this weekend. I’m glad I did, because I was looking for a new recipe to blog about, and then my mom served me her roasted potatoes. Problem solved. Thanks…

Recipe: Chinese Cilantro Pork

I, like many other 24 year olds with a few (or three) jobs, rely on Chinese food at least a few times a week. It’s delicious. Don’t deny it. Sometimes, though, I feel a little sluggish after takeout. So what’s a girl to do? You probably already know the answer. If you like cilantro, this…
