Dippy Eggs & Spicy Feta Provolone Soldiers

I can’t recall where I first learned about toast soldiers for dipping into soft boiled eggs but I remember thinking it was genius. My family did it a bit differently. Instead of boring plain toast, my mother would make a grilled cheese of sorts and

This is the time of year to be thinking of others. I have been a bit selfish this month, taking some time away from this blog, working on things that I want (like my new book- more soon), binging on Penny Dreadful and Criminal Minds,

Guys, I’m completely Olympic obsessed. I watched every single day. Also recorded any events I would miss knowing they wouldn’t re-air on primetime. Bob Costas has become a household name. WTF am I going to do now. New favorite sport: Weightlifting. New best friend: Aly

This is my nightmare holiday. I have never been able to hold out through a week of a unleavened Passover diet. If I’m not mistaken, I think 12 hours is my record at this point and that’s just because I slept in late that year. I live

Roasted Yams with Honey, Espelette, & Lime Yogurt from GJELINA

Out of all the cookbooks that have been published in the last year, I have fallen utterly in love with Gjelina. I mean… I live for this book. After writing my own, I fully understand the work and thought behind creating a cookbook. It’s time and
