Sides

Kimchi Pancake (kimchijeon)

Kimchi Pancake (kimchijeon)

Lately I’ve been getting the urge more and more to try NEW dishes. Foods that I quite honestly have been scared to make for a very long time. More Vietnamese and Korean and Indian food, perfect french baguettes, deep dish pizza. I’ve started using several […]

Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions

Although burger season is officially over (sad face) I’ve still been making us delicious veggie burgers inside on my cast iron pan.  The best part of cooking burgers inside is that it saves so much time, I can focus more on whipping up unique and […]

Spiced Nuts

Spiced Nuts

One of my favorite ways to class up a centerpiece is by turning it into a big bowl of something festive and edible.During the holidays, sweets are every where: the office, the convenience stores, well-meaning friends and family. It can be hard to say no […]

Green Ribbon Salad

Green Ribbon Salad

When the days are long and hot, and the veggies are all starting to ripen, there’s no better way to use up nature’s bounty than in massive salads.  They consist of relatively little prep time, zero oven time, and, with a little planning, can look […]

Blackened Corn & Pepper Salsa

Blackened Corn & Pepper Salsa

Corn was 50 cents a cob at the farmers market this weekend, so you better believe I stocked up! My all-time favorite way to eat corn is a quick parboil in salted water, and then finishing it on the grill.  It’s fast, easy, and can […]

Guyanese Bara

Guyanese Bara

My BFF recently got married. The wedding was beautiful, the day was perfect, and everything went so smoothly it almost didn’t feel real.  It was an outdoor wedding, and the weather stayed hot, but tolerable all day.  Even late into the night everything continued to […]

Aam Ki Chutney

Aam Ki Chutney

I’ve been itching to make a chutney for awhile now, but just haven’t been able to work up the nerve to jump all in.  I mean, if you think about it, it is a little intimidating!  The point of a chutney, as I see it, […]

Sweet and Sour Kebabs

Sweet and Sour Kebabs

Grilling season is in full force at our house, and that means burgers, corn, brats and of course, kebabs!  I fluctuate between wanting whole veggies, grilled just the way they are with a bit of oil and s+p, and craving a jam-packed shish-kebab covered in […]

Mexican Inspired Veggies

Mexican Inspired Veggies

Being a vegetarian, it goes without saying that I like my veggies. I eat red peppers like apples, I don’t need to smother my corn in butter to enjoy it, and I happily munch on avocado ‘on the half shell’. This being said, I have […]

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

I love tomatoes. I’m not sure if I’ve made that clear yet, so let me reiterate. TOMATOES ARE LIFE! OK, now that I have that off my chest, I feel better. This recipe (of course) is all about tomatoes. Pica de gallo is a very […]
