Kebabs in a Blanket

Kebabs in a Blanket

We’ve got a “Big Boy” tomato plant in my front yard. We built it a nice cage thing with some sticks and twine. It’s super cute and it just sprouted some flowers. I obviously don’t know my gardening lingo. Tas totally fell on it, by 

Ejjeh Quiche

Ejjeh Quiche

Ejjeh: a Lebanese omelette or frittata of sorts made with tons of herbs. I’ve seen it as a very thin green omelette that is then stuffed into a pita with tomato. I’ve also seen it as little herb and zucchini fritters. Which leads me to believe that 

Coconut Sugar Pie

I had dinner with a friend a few weeks ago at a new-ish Ford Fry joint, Beetlecat. We dined, we chatted, we stuffed our face with octopus over labne, ginger curry shrimp, lobster rolls, and tostones with oooeee sauce. Then like any good northerner turned southerner, we

Tahini Dirty Blondies

I like blondies… a lot. More than any brownie on earth. And if you add peanut butter to that blondie… I. Could. Just. Die. I have been forbidden from making blondies at home because I will take down a whole tray before they’re even cool 

Banana Bacon Fat Cornbread

Pomegranate Molasses BBQ Ribs

Pomegranate Molasses BBQ Ribs

You know that kind of North Carolina style BBQ sauce that makes you cough when you inhale it because of the amount of vinegar in it? Well this is that kind of saaawwce. It’s sweet and sour and tangy and my ultimate BBQ sauce for 

Kimchi Bacon Creamed Corn

Kimchi Bacon Creamed Corn

  Creamed Corn. Never tried it. Thought it could only be found at the bottom shelf of the canned vegetable aisle at the grocery store. I’m from the north where you don’t see or hear much about creamed corn. Then I moved to the dirty dirty where
