Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Cinnamon-packed and pumpkin-filled, these moist muffins make the perfect coffee side-kick!  Don’t get mad at me please! I know I know, it might be a little early, buuuut it’s half way through September, so I would say I have waited long enough to start the pumpkin baking. (; I love Fall and all the things […]

Coconut Chickpea Curry

This Thai curry is quick to make and way better than takeout! You’re gonna want to cozy up with a bowl of my version of curry this winter. Vegetarians and meat eaters are invited to dig in!  If you are a lover of Thai curry then you will LOVE this recipe I have for you […]

Steamed Zucchini

“How about broccoli for breakfast?” My husband was standing in front of the refrigerator this morning, doing his breakfast scout-out of available foods. I was a little surprised that this suggestion came from HIM, my meat-loving man . . .  but we sauteed the leftover steamed broccoli with a little butter, salt, and pepper, stirred […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup is a restaurant favorite, and so easy to make at home! Like any soup, the recipe is pretty flexible, depending on what is in the pantry. The recipe states tomato paste, but you could use canned tomatoes instead. You could substitute pinto beans for the kidney beans and black beans, or use […]

Eggplant Kuku

Among the many gifts my husband gave me when we were first married was a stack of 20 cookbooks. All were from different cuisines: Afghani, Persian, Moroccan, Turkish, Caribbean, Japanese, Chinese, South American, Cajun, Somali… well, you get the picture. I’m still trying to figure out what the take-away message is. He claims I’m the […]

Cucumber, Pepper, Fake Crab Salad

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t love the cold. I don’t love winter. I don’t love the lack of fresh produce in the grocery stores. Although the snow-covered outdoors is beautiful this time of year, I am constantly reminded that spring is nowhere near. I am originally from Florida. I’ve only been up north (if […]

Sesame Cabbage Salad with Mandarin Oranges

Once upon a time there was a girl who got a little overwhelmed, threw a hissy fit, created culinary excellence, forgot how, and found it again. Please allow me to tell you her story. It all started less than a month after she got married. She had just moved, with her husband, to a new […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies

Am I the only one who ate a whole lot of PB&J as a kid? Today is all about PB&J sandwiches. Of the cookie variety, that is. Last night, Kobe and I made peanut butter and jelly (and chocolate frosting) cookies. Even though we spend a lot of time together, Kobe and I have found […]

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is no need to ask my hubby what my number one most annoying habit is. I can tell you. When I turn off the water after taking a shower, I (sometimes?) forget to adjust the knob that turns off the shower head. Translation: every single time Kobe turns on the faucets in the bathtub, […]
