When it seems like I have nothing to make for dinner, I can at least count on having the ingredients for this tuna & pasta dish.
I learned the recipe in college from one of my friends. She said it is an Ethiopian recipe, but as I’ve prepared it over the years, I’m sure it [...]
You may not know that I have past experience working as a pizza cook. Back in high school, I worked at Bertucci’s as carry-out staff, a hostess, and eventually moved to back-of-house.
I was in charge of portioning out baggies of cheese, frozen chicken, and scallops in the morning. When customers [...]
The trees are swaying to and fro but largely staying put. There is a larger possibility for a squirrel to break through my kitchen window than a tree limb. We haven’t lost power either, so all engines are go in the kitchen.

I think the name is more complicated than what it really is… food on sticks.
Although I don’t have a grill, I [...]

Despite the condiment’s vulnerability to heat, Southerners are not known for skimping on the mayo. My mom’s potato salad recipe is a homestyle preparation that cannot be beat. It is mayo-based and I’m not prepared [...]
The last thing I crave in 90° weather is a hearty soup. But, I made it anyway because it seemed like a better idea than turning on the oven.
In my latest box of Boston Organics produce, I got lots of root veggies and fruit. I didn’t have enough room in my [...]
