Sweet Soy Glazed Salmon

After a weekend filled with carbs & starches (Sat: pasta carbonara & Fri: sweet potato fries & pimento cheese fries at our new favorite restaurant) we decided to go to one of our staples: salmon.  It's easy to cook; it can be broiled, grilled, baked, pan fried, or steamed, and doesn't make you want to...

Homemade Pasta Carbonara

In 2015, we went on a trip to Italy & Turkey. After eating our way through Rome, we became mildly obsessed with fresh pasta. So we got the pasta attachments for our stand mixer and have been trying to master making pasta from scratch ever since. The first time we attempted homemade pasta, we decided... Continue Reading →

Hodge-Podge Vegetable Soup

What do you do when there are a bunch of vegetables that have been in your refrigerator and pantry for quite some time?  You make soup!  Ally loves soup, and I've learned that somehow, I come up with a great tasting soup.  The key is in getting the liquid portion to taste delicious as it...

Mango Coconut Veggie Curry

I love pretty much any and all Asian foods and flavors. Thai-style curries are among my favorites. But disclaimer... I threw together this recipe myself. And as an average American with European mutt ancestry, I make no claims about authenticity of any sort. But with that being said, I think this turned out really well.... Continue Reading →

Berry Mocktail

So this afternoon, I decided to treat myself to a cool little drink. It's somewhere between a smoothie and a sparkling... Continue Reading →

Sfiha

Yesterday morning before going to the grocery store, we had a pretty standard conversation around here... "Do you want to pick out a new recipe to try tonight before we go to the store?" "Duh." Selim was perusing one of our favorite books, The World's Best Street Food, from Lonely Planet. Our friend Kayla gave it... Continue Reading →

Mediterranean Cucumber-Zoodle Salad

Have you been introduced to zoodles, the semi-recent food craze and healthy-eater favorite? I love these spiralized "noodles" of zucchini. We've made several dishes with them, and I think they work great as a noodle or grain substitute if you're into that kind of thing. What I don't think however, is that they are "just...

Ancho Chili Salmon with Sweet Summer Salsa

This was an easily thrown together dinner from the other night. We almost always have salmon in the fridge and wanted to try something a little different to go with it. So basically, we looked at our fridge and fruit bowl, mixed a few ingredients together, and ended up with an awesome, repeat-worthy dinner! The... Continue Reading →

Shrimp Etouffee

Have to start somewhere right? For our very first blog post, I give you a pretty easy recipe for shrimp étouffée. The other day we saw some nice-looking fresh shrimp on sale and snatched it up. So we were trying to plan a dinner around said shrimp. I caught a glimpse of Emeril on TV,... Continue Reading →
