One of my favorite TV shows is a program called Unique Eats, where chefs and other food personalities shared their food experiences at different venues around the country. Recently, a new spinoff series began airing that was created in the same vein, called Unique Sweets, and I quickly became a fan of that show too. Instead […]

On some of my trips to the Asian market, I am sometimes lucky enough to come across some leftover pieces of salmon that are packaged up and sold really inexpensively. When I find them, I buy up as many as I can and toss them in the freezer for a quick meal. Each pack may […]

A nice alternative to the traditional mayo based potato salad I’ve made in the past, is something my dad used to make when we were kids – a fried potato salad tossed in a homemade vinaigrette dressing.

I must say that I’m a little late in arriving to the quinoa craze. It’s definitely not that I don’t like quinoa because I do. I’ve enjoyed quinoa flakes in my homemade muesli mix and my homemade granola for a few years now — but so far, that was the only way that I had […]
