April 5, 2013

Today I could tell you all about how happy I am that Spring is finally I here. The birds are happily singing in the early morning hours replacing the need for an alarm clock, the flowers are blooming and the days are finally long enough to make it home from work before dusk. Well, sadly […]

Mini Pepper-Mushroom Quiche

December 7, 2012

First things first. Only 17 days til Christmas Eve! And a little vacation status report: I safely arrived in Puerto Rico Wednesday just before midnight. I nearly missed my connecting flight from Miami because my luggage wouldn’t arrive, but after what seemed like a half marathon through the airport in Miami I arrived at the […]

Sesame Crusted Fish with Ginger Noodles

November 30, 2012

Growing up in Indonesia I was definitely more than spoiled with heavenly fragrant food rich in flavors. Somehow the Asian cuisine incorporates so many more aromatic flavors than our standard western recipes do. We tend to use the same seasonings over and over again. Salt and pepper will find their way into most dishes even […]

Quinoa Stir-Fry

You guys, today I have a treat for you! After a weekend full of baking and licking spoons full of chocolate this is the kind of food I’m craving.

Tender Oven-Roasted Duck Filets

November 16, 2012

I promised you the recipe for one of our favorite family recipes, tender oven-roasted duck filets. Don’t think that this is a complicated dish to prepare just because it’s duck.

Fried Lemon-Ricotta Gnocchi

November 10, 2012

Whoever first created gnocchi, I love you. I just love the texture of the potato dough, how chewy they are and the fact that they’re bite-size. However, the person who came up with the idea of frying gnocchi must have been some sort of genius too. I think it’s commonly agreed that frying food makes […]

Brown Sugar Roasted Pumpkin Risotto

October 29, 2012

I used to think cinnamon and brown sugar were reserved to enhance the flavor of only sweet meals. These past few weeks however I have discovered that enhancing the flavors of pumpkin or squash by adding sugar will make the natural sweetness of the pumpkin come through even more. And as if that wasn’t a […]

Mama’s Healing Chicken Soup

October 25, 2012

Remember how I was sick for 2 weeks and consequently couldn’t run the half-marathon. Ya, you’re right no need to go over that again. I made it to the doctor last Tuesday and it turns out I had sinusitis and pneumonia. I had to stay at home for the rest of the week and did […]

Cherry Tomato & Herb Sugo

August 31, 2012

If you’re in need of a little weekend kitchen project, I have just the right thing for you: make your own sugo! Don’t you just think it’s so sad that local, sweet tomatoes are available for such a short period of time. I know that in our garden things are going crazy right now. We […]
