Speaking from experience, I can say that holiday eating is beyond deadly for the waistline. We’ve already received four different boxes/tins of candy and I know for a fact that there will be more. The holiday parties I’ve attended so far boasted an array of cheeses, crackers, cookies, and in a few cases, pizzas, further […]Read more "Healthy Holiday: Tomato Vegetable Soup"
Being at home definitely has its perks. There’s the free food, the parents to make fun of…aaaaand the awesome kitchen gadgets! We’ve got a standing mixer (be still my heart), a huge cuisinart (it works like a DREAM), a cookie press (adorable and retro), a Canon SLR (note the new and improved photos!!!!!!!!!!1), and a […]Read more "Camels, Christmas Trees, and Wreaths!

I adore Indian food. It’s filling, hearty, and full of delicious spices. I’ve been eating naan, curry, pakoras, etc. for most of my life and looooooving it. We ate out at Indian places a lot BUT we never made our own Indian food. I always assumed it was super complicated and involved. How did they […]Read more "Indian Cookin Part 1: Vegetable Pakora and Naan Bread"
I was inspired to make bread pudding after having an experience that I’m sure many of you can relate to. You land yourself some nice bread and for a few days you eat it at every possible moment. It’s fresh, it’s chewy, it’s delicious, you love it. Then a couple days or so go by. […]Read more "Thrifty Thinking: Bread Pudding"
