I'm just a girl who is passionate about food. It is my personal quest to try to expand my culinary horizons both at home and abroad. However, I was not always passionate about food. I had my epiphany much later when I got my very first job...at a sushi joint here in town. And just like that "Hook, line and sinker"...a foodie was born! I'm a P/T blogger, P/T yogini...but always a foodie.

What’s in the box – Fourth Delivery of our CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

Delivery #4 of our CSA delivery was yesterday. We were warned that this delivery would be a little smaller as the spinach was not quite ready (it’s been raining a lot).

These special shows occurred on the Friday, … Continue reading

To my dear friends, I’ve finally done it….I’m putting an end to my cheese-making virginity by signing up to participate in CHEESEPALOOZA. Inspired by last years’ amazing journey of bloggers and enthusiasts alike for CHARCUTEPALOOZA, I’ve decided to get my hands dirty and commit to doing this, instead of just being a spectator. Will there … Continue reading

Malaysian Curry Chicken

There are a few times every year that I get really homesick for my parents cooking.  Malaysian Curry Chicken, Chicken Satay with peanut sauce and also Laksa are the dishes that make me think of warmer climates and amazing family. Although I’m blessed with only living ten minutes away from my mom and dad, and only … Continue reading

Channa Masala is a dish made primarily of chickpeas, with origins in South Asia (mainly Pakistan and in Northern India). Although it is usually served mostly dry, I prefer mine to be a … Continue reading

Operation “eat at home…” in full swing

With only one income coming in right now, DH and I have been (for the most part) eating our way through the items in our freezer, fridge and pantry. It’s actually quite amazing that you can still create healthy and delicious meals even as you are standing … Continue reading

Excuses, Excuses…

I apologize for not posting anything this past month. It’s been insanely busy (I know, excuses…excuses). I really did have every intention of posting some delicious recipes, but life got in the way. Here is a photo of the northern lights in my area about two weeks ago.
