French Lentils with Roasted Root Vegetables


Meatless!  . . . Tuesday. I’ll admit, I’m not that that creative with vegetarian cooking. Back in the day when I was jazzed about expanding my vegetarian horizons, I tried making tofu a lot.

Shrimp Pho


Pho pho pho your boat, gently down your throat. Who else is sad I don’t write food jingles? And also, I know it’s technically pronounced “fuh,” but fuh fuh fuh your boat made me feel awkward on the insides. I would say, “what the fuh!” but my mom would remove me from her will. So […]

Beef Stir-Fry Cabbage Cups


Rock-a-bye-baby. So I’m trying to get more into Asiany foods. Like, more more. So much more in fact, yesterday I drove all around the city for HOUUUURS (okay, down the street for 15 minutes) to find this SPECIFIC kind of fish sauce, or else I’d combust into flames, thus causing my ashes to blow away […]

Asian-Style Steak Pizza


Sweet. Tangy. Pungent. Fresh. Surprising. Crispy. Tender. Choice. Delightful. Yummy. But I’m not here to talk about my electric personality, OHHHHH. Snap? Oh.
