I love to make food and eat food! Let’s talk about recipes, new discoveries, our personal connection to food, and more.
It’s been a while since I made some pasta dinner at home, but a recent craving called for some creamy truffle pasta, which I decided to top with prosciutto. A glass or two of wine may have been consumed with it too. For this recipe, you need some pantry staples…Keep reading
Even though I’m not much of a breakfast person, I do enjoy my brunch — and having breakfast food for brunch. Two of my favorites: definitely omelettes and wraps. I often make omelette wraps as they’re always so satisfying and filling, but this time, I thought I’d vary it a…Keep reading
Thanks to a friend’s recent suggestion, I decided to incorporate more chickpeas into my meals. I usually just use them whenever I make hummus, but chickpeas are definitely more versatile than that. So for a recent dinner, I thought I’d roast them along with my protein. I’m a big fan…Keep reading
