Crispy teriyaki salmon with grilled zucchini strips

It’s only Wednesday and I’ve accomplished some pretty big things this week already. I’ve managed to eat half of a wheel of Brie cheese since Sunday….alone. And to think I cancelled my gym membership.

No cream potato and leek soup with pancetta chips

Oooooooo-weeeeeee! It’s cold! Before you start scoffing and rolling your eyes (I see you, Northerners) let me explain myself. I grew up on an island, Key West to be exact, and I practically wore flip-flops year round. I have lived in Miami for the past seven years and essentially wear flip-flops year round here.

You can really add whatever you […]

Cauliflower tomato curry with jasmine rice

DISCLAIMER: this recipe will most likely make your house smell like an Indian spice market in New Delhi (not that I’ve been but I imagine it smells like this) and the picture looks like a pile of cat vomit but I swear this recipe is really tasty and worth the smell seeping into every nook […]

Eggplant Zucchini Lasagna

Tonight I felt like having something cheesy, warm, and baked. This vegetarian lasagna is still hearty (due to the eggplant) and is quite easy to make. You can make this with whatever veggies you have in your fridge (mushrooms, broccoli, bell peppers, etc) and it will still come out yummy! I’m using fresh mozzarella slices […]
