Vegetable Thai Green Curry

Thai Vegetable Green Curry CloseUp

For an easy meal, I highly recommend keeping a couple of kinds of curry paste on hand. I know, I know, this is a food blog and I should be more authentic and make it from scratch, but there are prepared Thai curry pastes out there that are pretty tasty.  I won’t go into each brand but please go to ...

Vegetable and Three Cheese Quiche

Vegetable and Three Cheese Quiche CloseUp

Real men don’t eat quiche!  Not that I’m a man but it seems that that’s always the first thing that pops in my head any time I see/make a quiche. Fun backstory for the young’uns out there (like me) – that line is the title of a funny book about masculine stereotypes.  It’s weird how things like that line disseminate ... Read More »

In fact, embedded video below if you want to check it out. So was I seriously dancing like that?  Yes, yes I was – don’t ... Read More »

Vegetable Couscous with Pesto Goat Cheese Artichokes

Vegetable CousCous Goat Cheese Pesto Artichokes

Quick post because I’m still working on catching up and my new classes have just started *ugh*. For the most part I like couscous but tend to find it just a bit, well odd.  I think it’s a bit of the texture when you’re eating it.  It’s these tiny balls that I’m sometimes not sure whether to chew or just ...
