My Favorite Way to Eat Asparagus (or any veggie for that matter)

Asparagus can be a tricky vegetable. Luckily, I’ve found that most veggies taste good roasted. It’s a fool proof way to cook them too. Asparagus falls under this category. It is delicious roasted in the oven. This recipe is so simple, it’s embarrassing. It’s not really even a recipe so much as it is a method of cooking. Whenever I roast vegetables, this is how I do it. I’ll use asparagus as an example: (more…)

Home made potato chips – minus the fat

I received two very interesting Christmas gifts from Pampered Chef this Christmas. One gift was recognizable and one was not.

Nostalgic Food

 

I found it. A restaurant that reminds me of my honeymoon. Obviously, if you read my previous posting, you saw how Greek food made an impact on me. I had accepted the fact that I probably wouldn’t have quality Greek food like that again for awhile (until I venture back to Greece – which I plan on doing at some point). However, my grandmother, who, bless her heart, knows how I loved the food in Greece, informed me of a restaurant that her Greek friends referred to as “the best Greek restaurant in town”.

Lamb Shank

I have eaten there twice in the 2 weeks I have been back from my honeymoon. (more…)
