Southwest Meatball Skillet

Ugh, pretty sure I have senioritis.   Is that even possible to have in grad school?  I’m just done. I don’t know; I’m simply dreading the new class that’s starting on April 30th.  It’s funny, one month of only taking one class instead of two and I’m completely spoiled! But anyway, let’s talk food.  I’m pretty sure my love of Southwestern/Mexican ... Read More »

Lightened Up Bolognese Sauce

When I was younger I was an unabashed carnivore. I ate my burgers plain with cheese and ketchup, and would always eat the meat in dishes and often skipped the veggies.

Another bad – my twitter account was suspended and ... Read More »

Go figure. So I’m going to have two variations/ideas ... Read More »

Spicy Turkey Pitas with Zucchini Fries

So I’m a huge fan of Middle Eastern food: kofta, falafels, shish taouk, the list goes on and on. I mean, how can you not like it? Pillowly pita bread, wide varieties of highly seasoned meat, baba ganoush, hummus – all delicious. (And yes I had to look up the spelling for the majority of those words). I also love ... Read More »
