The past couple years on St Patrick’s Day, we’ve ended up making guacamole because it’s quick, easy, edible and green, sans food coloring. But after what happened last year, I decided to go in another direction. We went last minute to the store (mistake #1) to grab […]
Lemongrass is one of my favorite flavors. I would put it in every marinade if I could. I even have a lemongrass plant, although he has yet to produce a real stalk. Right now he looks like a pot of overgrown grass. (I don’t know why I assign genders to […]
These sushi rolls are easy, yummy, and I don’t have to worry about dealing with raw fish. I leave that to the professionals! Besides, these are amazing just as their little veggie selves. Veggie Sushi Rolls 1 cup sushi rice 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar 1 Tbsp sugar ½ […]
Fruit, citrus, spice and herbs. That’s all you ever need for a good salsa, and the specific ingredients can vary as widely as your imagination, or refrigerator contents. This particular salsa needed to happen because I had a mango that was threatening to expire, and an overgrown mint plant.

Cinnamon Vanilla Caramel Corn:

This is a very unusual, yet fantastic combination from Austin’s family. If ever you want to impress your guests, your date, or your cat, this will do the trick. Ok, your cat will not be impressed. (Unless you ditch the rinds and just sprinkle catnip over the prosciutto.)
Austin’s family has a recipe involving pickled watermelon rinds. I had never even heard of such a thing, but it sounded pretty good to me. After scouring the supermarkets for a jar and finding zilch, I decided to just make my own. I checked out a number of recipes, but I chose […]
This appetizer idea popped into my head last weekend. They turned out amazingly well, for something so impromptu. I guess it’s a sign that I need to host a party soon, so I can make more and experiment with adding cheese and jalapeno!
