Spaghetti Squash: It’s Not Spaghetti, but It’s Good

The truth: Spaghetti squash is not spaghetti. It doesn’t taste like spaghetti (because it’s a vegetable); the texture isn’t like spaghetti (it’s crunchy). So if you’re looking for the ultimate healthy, gluten-free, low-calorie, eat-a-lot-and-still-be-skinny pasta substitute, this is not it. PS. It doesn’t exist, and if it did, we’d all look like Giselle. But here’s the

Dabbling in the Kitch – Scallion Pancakes

Scallion pancakes. Fried. Oily. Chewy. Savory. Who doesn’t love them? These simple pancakes are the replacement for dinner rolls at basically every Chinese restaurant.

Exams are over and I’m finally home! What better to do than watch sex and the city and cook!! I saw an episode on the food network of Paula Deen making an Asian Chicken and Orzo salad and I thought that might be a fun thing to try- especially because I can make it kosher
