Working in an office has its perks.
Not many, but there are a few – for example, internet connectivity, air conditioning, and proximity to office supplies. But the real bonus is working next to an awesome lunch spot. They make Fridays so much sweeter.
I have raved about Viga Italian [...]
This week’s food feature has been sitting as a draft for two weeks.
Tonight’s dinner is 100% inspired by a bottle of salad dressing.
We’re not trying to eat healthier or use up vegetables. Salad is for dinner because Brianna’s came out with classic buttermilk ranch dressing, and we are dying to try it.
Have you ever tried Brianna’s dressing before? There [...]
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 was set [...]
Welcome, salad I haven’t made before. Come into my life and help me survive another day without baked ziti. The idea for Niçoise salad came to mind, as a cool meal to top off a hot day. Salad is all I felt like eating in the heat, but who can eat the same [...]
This is an easy spin on the traditional pizza pie or calzone. Pizza samosas are just what you would imagine: pizza in samosa form. I rolled out whole wheat pizza dough into individual triangular shapes.
Then, I spooned tomato sauce and piled on the filling. I went with broccoli, onions, and [...]
We celebrated the third anniversary of our first date today. For all intensive purposes, we call this day our anniversary, because we’ve been together ever since. I’ve matured so much, in fact, that instead of spending almost $100 on a fancy dinner out for this occasion, I decided to do it all for free at home.
I made a simple but delicious menu that wouldn’t require much heat in the kitchen (it’s still way too hot.)
Whenever I come across the tomato-basil-mozzarella combination, I fondly recall the salad days of college. I use that phrase figuratively and literally, because in college I tried a lot of salad-only diets.
During a stint with my part-Sicilian roommate, we would eat salads for dinner most days of the week.
My parents grew up in Alabama. Suffice it to say, they know a thing or two about mayonnaise.
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 [...]
