Spicy Thai Mango Noodles with Shrimp

Lately I’ve been craving Asian food, or at least Asian-inspired dishes. I think it happens when my body is really lacking in certain nutrients and it craves a ton of the same vitamins and minerals that you can get from loading up a dish with veggies that contain Vitamin C and iodine-rich seafood. Whatever it … Read more

We met briefly at the Eat Write Retreat in Washington, D.C. a couple … Read more

Cholay: Indian Spiced Chickpea Curry

Spicy Indian dishes are a real treat to me. It’s food I crave, but don’t always make for myself. I don’t even seek out too many Indian restaurants (although I would love to). Instead, I learned most of what I know about Indian food from friends- in their kitchens, snooping around pots of curry, pans … Read more
