The restaurant mecca that is Noma

So after over a year of taking a break from my blog, I’ve decided I have to do a special post on my food experience at Noma.  For those you not in the know, Noma is commonly thought to be one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in the entire world.  It’s held … Continue reading

Blueberries and cream cookies

This is my 200th post and I have officially kept this blog for just over two years now!  I can’t believe that I’ve been able to keep up blogging for this long and to be honest, with my impending move to London and the craziness of starting business school, I’m not sure that I will … Continue reading

Baked tofu with kale and quinoa

So right now I am currently into alternating extremely healthy quinoa recipes with equally delightful unhealthy cookie ones.  It is obviously now time for our next quinoa recipe which is made even more complete by the addition of kale and tofu.  The tofu in this recipe is baked as opposed to sautéed in a pan, … Continue reading

Chocolate toffee cookies

If you are looking for some SERIOUS chocolate in a cookie, this is a very safe bet.  All of you milk chocolate lovers, just step away –  this cookie is only for serious chocolate addicts.  I proudly count myself in this group and thus thoroughly enjoyed this cookie.  I actually used half unsweetened chocolate and … Continue reading

Quinoa, cucumber, and radish salad

Oh dear, I have let too much time slip by without updating again.  I actually have heaps of recipes to share with you all and the majority of them are quite good for you and involve quinoa.  All of the travel and prep for business school hasn’t actually slowed down my cooking and baking, but … Continue reading

Stuffed tomatoes

It’s been a while since I’ve done a stuffed veggies dish and when I saw this one I had to try it immediately.  I love tomatoes, especially in the summertime, and the mix of goodies that went into this one looked amazing.  As you all know I have a slight obsession with chickpeas (really, almost … Continue reading

Apple and sweet potato egg cups

Say what now?  Apple and sweet potatoes combined with eggs?  Yes.  My egg cup ways are back with a vengeance.  I’m currently camped out in northern Virginia for a little while and so I’m really buckling down on my healthy recipes and trying to eat very clean foods when I’m not going crazy visiting friends. … Continue reading

Totally American cookies

Happy fourth of July everyone!  For the first time in a while I am actually in the states for this very American holiday, although today I cooked a dinner of spaghetti squash and a tomato sauce with spinach and tofu crumbles, soooo I’m not as patriotic as most.  Nevertheless, since coming back to the states, … Continue reading

Cambodian food revisited

I’m quite delayed in posting this but I did want to take the time to post one last entry from my trip to Asia!  This was my second time in Cambodia, but I got to spend much more time there this time and thus was able to do much more food research ahead of time … Continue reading

Blueberry cranberry banana bread

After six weeks on the road, it’s been delightful to settle back into life in the states with family and friends and have much more consistent access to a kitchen (or rather, my friends’ kitchens).  Upon discovering some old frozen bananas in my mom’s freezer, I decided it was necessary to bake a new type … Continue reading
