This past Ramadan I got really used to drinking smoothies at iftar and sometimes even at suhoor.  Now here were are a couple of months out, and they are very much still on my radar, especially since I’ve frozen so much of the fruit that was leftover and still gets left over from weekly shopping. But what I decided to ... Read More »

Sweet & Sour Beef

final - sweet and sour beef

I don’t make Asian food that often at home, but I really do love it. I recently had a real craving for sweet and sour something- whether it be seafood, beef or chicken.

Quick and Easy Chicken Wings

Quick & Easy Chicken Wings

My love of eating chicken wings began in college when I really got a taste of how wonderful they were- mild, hot and spicy and always with some sort of creamy dip and a side of fries.

Super Quick Chicken Marinade

super quick chicken marinade

We’re all getting back to a more ‘normal’ routine after the month of fasting in Ramadan, which in my house actually means more cooking- or at least more need to be prepared for three meals a day instead of 1.5, as at least either our Iftar or Suhoor doesn’t take up a lot of our stomach space by the end ...

Baked Shrimp with Garlic, Fresh Herbs and Red Pepper Paste

On my Sicilian side of the family, they really love shrimp. My aunts bake it in the oven with some very simple ingredients like garlic, parsley and olive oil. The taste, smell and flavor is everything I remember about Sicilian summers and about my family here and there. I never really learned the exact recipe for it, but after tasting ... Read More »

Tuna, Red Pepper, Garlic and Basil Pasta

My entire house has been under construction for several months now, and we’re living right in the midst of it.
