Five Ingredient Red Curry Coconut Sauce or Dressing

April 22, 2014

I didn’t intend for this recipe to be blog-post-worthy. I was throwing together a simple lunch bowl–leftover brown rice, fresh spinach, steamed broccoli, leftover white beans–and realized that I was running low on dressing. This is a rarity in my home; I’m a little dressing-obsessed, and I tend to make a few at the start […]

Sorry for the sparse posting this week, everyone! I’ve been juggling a bunch of work and also in New York, so I haven’t been near my kitchen as often as I’d like. I hope you’re all preparing for a nice holiday weekend. What can I say about this recipe? It came to me sort of […]

May 9, 2012

I wish I could begin this post by telling you all how well my biochem exam went, but I’m afraid it was no better than Orgo. That said, the end is near, and rather than dwelling on the negative (finals), I thought I would focus instead on the positive: I was so busy this year […]

Creamy Red Pepper, Chickpea, and Tahini Dressing

January 22, 2012

Hey all! Hope your weekends were relaxing, and that you managed to avoid some of the arctic chill we’re seeing here in DC (and, from what I hear, all over the Northeast). Mine was filled with the usual melee of studying, blog work, yoga, gym, and food. Food, of course, was the main highlight! I’ve […]
