I love how food can be associated with memories. That a bite or a smell can send you back in time. Hopefully it’s a happy one. Once there is a nip in the air and the days get shorter, for me at least, I sometimes need a little cheering up. There is nothing like a … More The Other Soup
In the blink of an eye, almost an entire year has come and gone. Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of things that happened, but almost none of them were food related. My life went from completely revolving around food, to it being an afterthought. From researching, cooking, and baking any free moment I … More Moroccan Vegetable Stew
A week or so ago, my husband asked why I don’t take more of his suggestions in the kitchen. I was confused at first and then realized that this was indeed something that I do. My kind and wonderful husband has quite imaginative suggestions. Some might even rival Grant Achatz…ok that is a bit of … More Apple Butter…With A Twist
The time has come! The year is finally coming to an end and I am looking forward to the next year. I remember other years when this day has come that I just couldn’t wait for the next year because I was over it and wanted a fresh start. This isn’t the case this year. … More Reflections on 2017: A Year Without Resolutions
I will skip the “Sorry I haven’t written in forever” speech because what’s the point? Since my last post, fall is upon us in Seattle. The cold has set-in and the rain is on its way. Pumpkin season is in full swing and our house is lightly scented with fall candles. Here is my shameless … More Pumpkin Crescent Rolls
If I am being completely honest, I haven’t been feeling like myself for a quite a while. I have only halfheartedly wanted to blog. I have tons of trashed or half written posts, but I just haven’t had the drive or desire to continue. Call it a quarter-life crisis if you will. I … More Soft Sprinkle & Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookies
Like almost every other holiday, Passover always sneaks up on me. I blinked and here it is. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t stressed, but I’m not sure stress is really the right word. Maybe overwhelmed? It always seemed so easy when I lived at home. I didn’t have to do any … More What’s for Seder?
I have done a decent amount of traveling, but outside of the states, the place that I have spent the most amount of time is Israel. Politics aside, cause this is not that kind of blog, I ate more amazing meals and food in general there than anywhere else. For many who have not ventured … More How much hummus is too much?
With the resurgence of so many superhero movies and shows, and the pestering of my boss, I realized that I never really explained why I started this blog or where my seemingly odd name choice came from. For starters, the reason I started this blog was not to be “discovered” or to become insta-famous. I happen … More Origin Story
When I sat down at the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would keep up with the blog better and then I blinked and it was March. Well I am sorry, but I will try to do better. Just like this blog getting away from me, Purim has snuck-up on me. For … More Chag Purim Sameach! It’s Hamentaschen Season!
