A few months back, my friend was raving about this hummus she found at a local Mediterranean restaurant. She claimed it was, “smooth as silk” and by far, the best hummus she’s ever had. Frankly, this bothered me. What was their secret? I wanted to make the best hummus we’ve both ever had. (What an […]
This recipe is so simple, and so tasty. And to top it all off, it’s quite healthy – full of lean protein and veggies and fiber (lentils are a total superfood). As healthy as this dish is, however, it does not skimp on flavor (and as an unexpected bonus, it’s vegan!). This recipe originally comes […]
Couscous is quickly becoming a favorite side dish/starch these days. It’s so light & fluffy, takes no time at all to make, and is actually pretty nutritious.

So honestly, I didn’t know what to call this. I’m not going to claim that I’m an Indian food professional, and in fact, this dish was very much an experiment like everything I make. Nevertheless, it was REALLY good and tasted a lot like an Indian dish I had the week before at an authentic […]
Who says you have carbs in every meal? Who made that rule?! That’s what I want to know. I say if I have nothing but a head of garlic, a piece of semi-freezer burnt chicken and a red pepper in my fridge, I can make a meal out of it! These were taken with my iPhone […]
