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

So, my right wrist is immobilized in a brace after a stupid hockey injury landed me with some torn cartilage. We’ve been eating out, eating frozen, and eating a lot of popcorn lately, as a result. It’s been maybe a week and a half to two weeks of that, and I’m about ready to kill

There’s nothing quite like coming home to the smell of a dinner that’s made itself while you were at work. It’s even better when you end up with a ton of leftovers (or enough to invite a friend over for dinner)! While the prep is admittedly a little more difficult when you’ve got one hand

The Fiancé and I have very different definitions of green chili, thanks to our mothers. My mom’s is green and served as a standalone dish. His mom’s is red and served burrito-style. Both are delicious. While I’m not sure at what point in marriage I gain the rite of passage that is learning my mother-in-law’s

We’ve covered Diwali, Hanukkah, and Christmas in our holiday food and story features. Now, it’s time to go way back to a celebration that may seem familiar in some ways, though it is often forgotten as a niche practice in the shadow of the flashier, more popular holidays. I’m talking about the Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice

“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as

This year, to bridge the gap between Thanksgiving and New Year, I’m going to feature a series of collaborative posts that highlight different winter holidays from around the world. It will be a tour of culture, history, and of course, food from all different cultures and religions, and starting it all off is the Hindu
