Orecchiette con broccoli

I am definitely on a pasta kick. This takes about 20-30 minutes to make, is healthy, is extremely flavorful due to the pungent garlic and sharp parmigiano cheese. And it uses De Cecco pasta! Sounds pretty perfect, if I must say so. If you don’t know about De Cecco, check out my last post where I talk […]

Racchette pasta with shrimp, red pepper, and broccolini in a white wine/lemon/garlic sauce

Now that I’ve recovered from the gorge fest, aka Thanksgiving, I am finally back in the kitchen!

You can really add whatever you […]

Detox Monday

Monday. We meet again. Another weekend has passed us by and yet another weekend of me promising myself that I will eat well (by “well” I really mean healthy-ish). And yet again, another epic fail! Ugh. Why is it that when the weekend rolls around I throw out all my food rules that I so […]

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 […]
