Indian Chickpea Curry

It feels like a Sunday. The house is quiet and I’m laying on the couch with a towel on my head. I think my neighbors are moving. No, they are moving; too many boxes in the hall. I have Dal on the stove and window cleaners are scaling our building. I hope they finish soon…Read more

Easter

We are super excited for the Easter Bunny to come. Every year, my husband and I take turns hiding eggs for each other. I stuff the eggs, hide them, he finds them, hides them for me, I find them, and then we get to eat them! It was the best tradition between the two of usRead more

Low Fat Granola

Granola. How many times can I talk about granola? Probably as many times as I can eat it, which is a lot, if people allow it. I’ve had sweet, gooey, chewy, sticky granola (my favorite, from Urth cafe in LA) and i’ve had crunchy, hard, sweet, yet slightly-savory granola. The latter being my favorite, healthyRead more

When he got home he brewedRead more

Bikini Bod Asian Quinoa Salad

Hello friends… I’m terrible at something called consistency. I’d like to say i’m too busy planning a wedding but really, i’m not. Truthfully, the ‘big’ things were ironed out months ago and the rest will be taken care of with the help of our amazing wedding planners. On the topic of weddings, I just read thisRead more

Savory Summer Salmon

This is my family’s favorite way to have salmon. It’s a great summer salmon because of the strawberries and oranges that top it off. If this isn’t aesthetically pleasing i don’t know what is.

Curried Cauliflower

Just outside my agency in Beverly Hills, CA there is a small cafe serving coffee, mouth watering baked goods, and lunch. I had a long drive ahead of me down to OC and decided to pick up some grub. Just as i walked in i saw a steaming plate of, ‘something’ walk through the kitchenRead more
