I’ve really been into making hummus lately. Buying it in batches at the store, with the amount of it I can eat in a week, gets expensive quickly. Making it at home is way cheaper, even with this recipe, which is the most expensive because of the tapenade. Of the three I’ve made so far,

When you have a finnicky stomach like mine, it’s good to have multiple cures and fixes up your sleeve. I’ve got ginger chews, teas, mental exercises, you name it. Sometimes, though, you need to add something new to your repertoire. That’s where this turmeric millk comes in. It’s a sweet, spiced, hot milk drink that

As delicious as my spicy hummus is, sometimes I need to mix things up a bit. Back when I used to buy hummus, I used to love the roasted red pepper kind. I also really liked olive tapenade hummus, though it was almost impossible to find, which is why I have to figure out my own

Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables, and I wish I could eat them every day. They’re a fun finger food, less work than crab legs, and surprisingly filling. Another bit of good news is that, if you’ve never roasted artichokes at home, it’s not a terribly difficult recipe, though it does take a little

One day, I was sitting down and having lunch at a restaurant with my Poppa, and the waitress came over to take our orders. We both ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. Before the waitress turned and left, Poppa asked her, “do you know what we used to call these

One of my friends came over to help me bake, and he brought up the idea of using aquafaba in something “for science.” It was an experiment and it went… pretty well. Our meringue ended up a little overworked and not super presentable, but everything else about the pie looked fantastic. This recipe is one

This recipe was quite an adventure. The recipe for molasses pie that I found was tucked away in a 106 year-old book that I picked up at an antique store. The recipe consisted of the ingredients for filling and topping two pies, and the instructions for baking amounted to “bake in one crust, remove from

There’s a local antique shop in town that has a variety of items, from world war relics and period clothing to old dolls and kitchenwares. They also occasionally have some incredible finds, such as newspapers from the day of the first moonwalk or the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, or 105 year-old home medical and

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods). Fortunately for everyone involved, these
