4 Foods to get you Summer–Body ready without breaking the bank!

Hey All, In light of my previous submission by my friend Helen, I’ve been receiving lots of articles from writers wanting to share their tips on cooking, staying healthy, and eating in general. It’s been awesome and super fun to read things by others, and I want to support my fellow writers (and in this…

Recipe: Basil Salt

Last week, my garden was overrun with basil.  I didn’t know what to do, as the space was competing with tomatoes, and the tomatoes were quickly winning.  It’s a massacre out there for all the other veggies. I have been doing everything I can to preserve the beautiful basil my garden produced, and this recipe…

Recipe:Stuffed Squash Blossoms

This summer, I finally decided to tackle something that I have been either too busy, or too afraid to tackle: My very own garden.  I know it sounds silly, but I have dreamed of growing my own food for some time now.  I have to say, it has certainly been a learning experience.  What to…

Recipe: Plum Coffee Cake

It’s no secret that I’m not the best at baking, mostly because I shy away from trying it. It intimidates me. When I saw this post from StrawberryPlum, however, I had to try it. I love coffee cake, and, ironically, how well it pairs with tea. Figured I’d give it a go, I mean, it’s…

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: 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…
