As I’ve probably mentioned, I’m completely obsessed with Game of Thrones, as are my sisters. We’ve been watching the show, reading the books, and most recently we (and the rest of our potluck people) have been cooking the food!
Our first potluck was in dreary January at my sister Meg’s house, and the wintery food of Winterfell sounded like a good place to start. She set her table beautifully with white and silver – Stark house colors! – and we loaded it up with delicious fare.Blog Read More
I’ve been bugging my friend Mariela for awhile to teach me how to make her famous empanadas (or pastelitos, whichever). She is Ecuadorian and therefore knows what she’s doing. Unfortunately this weekend our plans fell through, but my always adventurous friend Gloria and my sister Meg and I decided to forge ahead anyway and try our hand at it. The results were delicious, and we had a lot of fun muddling through!Blog Read More
I’d mentioned that in my first trimester since I was so morning sick that Pakistani food and other spiced-up cuisines were not really appealing to me and I was wanting the fresher, cleaner flavors of Japanese food (that and like, Taco Bell.

After a longer than expected break, I feel renewed creativity, and am wanting to get back in the blogosphere – and also back in the kitchen, which I’ve been desperately missing for the last couple months!Blog Read More
For this month’s Secret Recipe Club, I was paired with Julie from Julie’s Eats & Treats. She has plenty of recipes for a sweet tooth, and since I don’t bake as much as I’d like I thought this would be a good opportunity to try one of them out. But more about that in a minute.Blog Read More
So things have
slowed down ground to a halt around here. Various life events – awesome Pakistan trip, deathly plague of respiratory infection, new baby! New baby! (Not mine, my sister’s) – have kept me out of the kitchen for a little bit. Besides making obligatory pot of beans.
Time for another Secret Recipe Club! I was so happy to be matched this month with Devon from deli-cute-tessen.com, because I am always on the lookout for new vegan recipes to try. Deli-cute-tessen has tons and they look just delicious.Blog Read More
