In the dead of winter, it’s easy to feel low. The holidays are over and the sun sets before 5 in the afternoon. The freezing weather keeps us pent up inside, often alone, resulting in cabin fever of epic proportions. If the January blues are getting to you, why not take this opportunity to share meals… more →

There are several basic foods that we feel everyone, EVERYONE, needs to know how to cook, and topping that list is rice. Rice is the start of so many amazing dishes. It can be served under a stir fry, or over a salad. In a soup, or on it’s own as a pilaf. It completes… more →

A raw challenge on the heartiest of holidays would be a buzz kill for most bird hungry feast goers, but for me it was just the thing I needed to get in the spirit. Thanksgiving was to be spent the usual way– at my grandma’s Upper West Side apartment amongst a bounty of pickled appetizers,… more →

You know what ruins good food? An awful presentation. Spending hours in the kitchen simmering and sauteing expensive and exotic ingredients wont hold a note once you serve it up in plastic.
