Lettuce Sandwich Recipe: Wait! Don’t Go!

I wrote about My Grandmother’s Ravioli a few months back. It’s a show featuring Mo Rocca where he interviews sweet G-Ma’s for their prized recipes. This sandwich was inspired by an episode in New England about Lobster (of course) and oddly, lettuce sandwiches. Wait! Come back! They’re actually pretty tasty. The original recipe which can […]

Ma’s Creations: Quinoa Pulao Recipe

So Ma recently heard about quinoa from a friend. She pronounces the protein and iron rich food in the same way I did at first. “Qui-noa” rather than “KEEN-WAH”. I like the way she says it, so I haven’t corrected her just yet. My favorite recipe using the grain/seed up until then was this breakfast […]

Ways to Use Fresh Tomatoes #9,921: Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwiches.

The little bodega down the road mysteriously manages to sell Jersey tomatoes cheaper than the farmer’s market.

These legumes, while delicious are milder than the traditional so I kicked up the seasoning a bit. The end result […]

Pad Thai is one of those dishes, like biryani that we’d tried to make a few years back but failed spectacularly. They ended up mushy and the tamarind concentrate tasted […]

Pineapple Miso Cilantro Sauce Via Vegetarian Times

Post Superbowl (congrats Patriots), we happened to have leftover pineapple (from pizza) and cilantro (from nachos). After a bit of googling I came across this Vegetarian Times “sambal” which means sauce in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and other countries. We didn’t modify much from the original recipe except the amounts. I love how the miso thickens […]

Turnip Greens Recipe – Ain’t No Thing

Ain’t no thing but a turnip green. If you’re not familiar with turnip greens, they’re a great option to have in veggie rotation. Like most greens they’re chock full of good vitamins –  in this case, vitamins A, C & K along with calcium. (Vitamin K by the way helps the body process protein and calcium). […]
