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

Asian Beef Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

Sometimes having a good friend over for dinner can be stressful. You want to impress them (obviously), but you don’t want to be slaving away while they’re sitting on your couch awaiting your latest dating gossip. The trick to really winning the at-home dinner date is having everything pre-prepared so all you need to do

Olympic Eats: Hummus

It has come to my attention this week that I will never be in the Olympics. I hold my knee cartilage too dear for moguls, I slip and fall just looking at ice, and I refuse to sweep my apartment, so curling is just out of the question. But it’s okay. At least I can

What We’re Eating: Super Bowl Cheesy Taco Dip

Well it’s just about the end of the first quarter in this year’s Super Bowl. So far, I’m feeling pretty good about things. Don Cheadle is in a commercial, Peyton Manning is looking fine…and I’m eating the most delicious taco dip ever. Isn’t that what the Super Bowl is all about? Finding places to dip

Summer Risotto with Zucchini Ribbons, Corn and Fresh Basil

Oh who doesn’t love risotto? It’s creamy, delicious, filling and well it’s perfect. The main reason why I love risotto so much is because you really can do anything with it. There are so many different additions you can make- different vegetables, different wines- the options are really endless. Yesterday I wanted to make a

A Light Summer Potato Salad

SOME people would call me a picky eater. I have to admit I do tend to stray away from certain grotesque foods. But other than that, I really do try to keep an open mind. The greatest of the “grotesque foods” is by far mayo. It’s white, gloppy, gooey, fattening and just makes everything creamy

Kosher Chicken with Black Bean Sauce

I came home today and craved my favorite dish from my favorite Chinese restaurant. In Newton, there’s an amazing posh Chinese place called Bernard’s. Bernard’s is elegant and serves true Chinese cuisine. The best dish that they serve is that Chicken with Black Bean Sauce. It is served in a piping hot stone pot, almost

Classy Eggplant Parmigiana

Today I want to talk eggplant parmesan. This is not eggplant parm that you pick up at the next door hoagie place. It is not too dry or too greasy. It is not deep fried in a vat of day old oil. It is also not covered in any sort of fake, Kraft sliver of

Canned Soup: from Blah to Voila!

This is the enemy… Canned soup takes about 5 minutes to cook. The hardest part is probably opening the can. Just open, pour and heat. You don’t even need to add water anymore. The convenience of the soup in a can is extraordinary. Even for clean up- you just have to wash one dish. However,

Vegetarian French Onion Soup

My whole life I have always loved french onion soup. How could one possibly not enjoy that warm beefy broth with tender onions? How could one not devour the broth soaked crouton smothered in creamy, gooey, and slightly torched cheese? If I had to think of a perfect comfort food, it would definitely be french
