Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Quinoa Salad

Do you ever wonder what food trends will look like a generation from now? Every now and then when I’m walking through the grocery store, my mind starts to wonder — what produce will be the hot new trend in 20 years?  What methods of cooking will be most popular?...

Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce

My friends have gotten used to the fact that they are always my guinea pigs for trying out new recipes. It is the rare — very rare — occasion that I bring a dish to a gathering that I have actually tried before.  Instead, they have come to expect that...

Samosas-3

Baked Samosas (2 Ways!)

Look out, world.  I finally learned how to make samosas.  Actually, I learned how to make real-deal traditional vegetarian samosas, but then had the idea to also try converting them into a (considerably) quick-and-easier version in mini phyllo cups.  So today I’m sharing two samosa recipes below, which happen to...
