Moosewood Bible

Erin knocked out another great meal with Tunisian Potato Turnovers, a recipe from a Moosewood Restaurant cookbook we have. There's always something great lurking in those books, especially the Tuscan sandwich we made a few weeks ago ... think lots of marinara and roasted eggplant.

Tonight, we mixed things up with curried cauliflower, chicken saag (saag sauce pre-made thanks to Trader Joe's) and some fluffy Jasmine rice (sorry, we didn't have Basmati). We always like Indian, and were celebrating the uber-Oscar winnings of Slumdog Millionaire last night, the best movie I've seen recently.

Lastly, we finished things off properly with Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia wedged with a chocolate chip cookie. Yum!


  1. so we finally saw it, slumdog, and yes it was good... but.... that's about it for me. I still think the best foreign film (and just film in general) I've seen is City of God. The one about the Brazilian slum kids and drugs.
    Netflix it baby!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
