I know I haven't been posting recipes as often that I thought I would. Truth be told, I only want to post recipes on here that I actually like. So, although I'm cooking quite a bit for this class, some of the recipes aren't up to my high "palatability" standards. I actually liked this recipe … Continue reading Cauliflower “Steaks” with Olive Pistou

I remember there being a Sex and the City episode on this (surprise, surprise, they always think of … Continue reading Minus One for the Singles

You've probably figured by now that I am going to post about Australia all week- and that would be correct. I'm going to start off easy. Some of the initial observations I had while I was in Australia. Then as the week progresses, I'll get into the internal, meaningful stuff. I'm going to be brutally … Continue reading Aussie ABCs
