How about a berry cheesecake milkshake for breakfast?, I enticed Mike one Saturday morning.
Cheesecake-flavored anything is his favorite; combine it with berries and he’s in heaven. Needless to say, he was pretty excited about breakfast that day.
That is, until he saw me add cottage cheese to the blender in a moment of inspiration. (more…)

When Mike and I can’t agree on dinner, I like to cook “his” and “hers” style.
Sometimes it’s completely different meals, like spaghetti with homemade beef ragu for him and fish or chicken with a side of veggies (preferably roasted) for me. But if I’m lucky, it’s a similar meal that’s easily customizable for both of our tastes, like salad with different toppings or sandwiches with different fillings…or quesadillas! (more…)

The only kind of juice Mike likes is carrot.
I don’t like to make it for him every day (a friend of a friend’s cousin’s mom swears that her baby turned orangish from feeding her carrots every day!), but I make him a fresh glass of it a couple times a week in the morning when I make my own juice blend. (more…)

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to shy away from bold-flavored foods…
Extra, extra onion on every sandwich. (I wish I were kidding. If you’re ever at a sandwich shop and you hear someone order their sandwich with double extra onion, walk up and say hi because it’s probably me.)
At least one more clove of garlic than every recipe calls for.
Tunafish for breakfast…why not?! (more…)

What I love most about summer is local, seasonal fruit. Melons, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, and of course peaches. (more…)

In my home, desserts are just as seasonal as any other food.
It would be strange to have a hearty beef stew for dinner in the middle of summer, and it would be all but unheard of (except for a birthday celebration) to have a rich, heavy chocolate cheesecake for dessert. Summer calls for fresher, lighter fare all around…dessert included. (more…)

So, the other day I walked into the bathroom and found the entire contents of the medicine cabinet strewn into the sink. Makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, medicine. It wasn’t pretty. (more…)

You know the appetizers they bring to the table at Indian restaurants – usually papadums (lentil crackers) with dipping sauces and chutneys?
When I started craving one of those chutneys and looking forward to it more than my actual meal, I knew I needed to make it at home. (more…)
