Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa Recipe

I like to use the Reminders app by Apple, which conveniently syncs between my iPhone, my computer and my iPad. It’s very handy. I have fourteen individual lists of reminders, each one packed full of stuff to do. There is even this great function where you can set a reminder to repeat at a specific […]

Dried Apricot and Almond Rice Salad

Dried Apricot and Almond Rice Salad

As a food photographer, I often end up with leftover ingredients from shoots and sometimes it’s hard to figure out what to do with them. In cases like this I usually turn to my electronic copy of How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman (which is available at the app store). I use this app […]

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Last week I had some friends over for some pulled pork and I made cole slaw to go with it. My recipe called for both red and green cabbage. The thing is, if you use two whole cabbages to make slaw then you have enough slaw for about fifty people. So I made half that […]

It’s approaching 9pm last night and I’m in the kitchen attempting to saute shredded brussel sprouts while at the same time keeping an eye on my vegetable soup. This is made slightly difficult because I have the front of the stove half-way open so I can keep an eye on the bruschetta that I have […]

Getting My Greens: Kale

Getting My Greens: Kale

Everyone has been all a-twitter about kale these days, and after some prompting by some friends I finally took the plunge and picked up some up. I was a little skeptical about kale because my only experience with it thus far was using it as a garnish for molded jello when I worked wait staff […]

Wednesday Night Goddess Salad

Wednesday Night Goddess Salad

I was all excited about my baking yesterday that I woke up extra early. I often have to struggle with my impatience to get started with something (in this case, baking) and my natural inclination to, you know, stay in bed. So I stayed in bed a bit longer and procrastinated by perusing through some […]
