After nearly 17 years in Los Angeles, I’ve decided to move to the Detroit area. I haven’t set a timeline in stone yet, but I’ll probably start driving cross-country with JJ towards the end of March.

I’ve been thinking about moving for a long time now – at least six months. The gears started turning in my head when I realized that Read the rest of this entry »

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Almond Dressing

February 15, 2019

I’ve been using (and eating!) riced vegetables a lot lately. They’re just so easy and convenient. They cook quickly, can be added to so many dishes, and best of all, good for you! (For more riced vegetable ideas, click here, here, and here.) So, here’s another recipe involving riced vegetables. This time, I used riced broccoli as the basis for a delicious salad.

I Pulled a Strange Can Out of the Back of My Cupboard, and Then I Opened It and Ate It

January 28, 2019

You know how you sometimes find things buried deep in your cupboard or pantry, and you don’t remember when you bought them, or why? I had one of those moments the other night, when I was looking for something else and stumbled across a can of… turnip greens.

I love olives, but I want to use them in new ways, apart from eating them straight from the jar (even though that’s a perfectly suitable option). Read the rest of this entry »
