When I was in the fifth grade, my math teacher was going around the room, asking all the students what they had for breakfast. She got to me and, without missing a beat, I said ‘nothing.’ Her whole lesson was thrown off by that revelation. What? A fifth grader who didn’t eat in the morning? […]

The longer I cook, the more I find that I have certain go-to recipes that are as ingrained in my repertoire as number 2 pencils in a school child’s pencil bag. They are my tried and trues, my favorites, my without-thinking creations. My tried and trues can be made without fuss or muss, because they’ve […]

It’s the second International Tuesday, and I tapped into my Thai cookbook for a yummy soup recipe. It looked good in the book, and even better in my bowl. To be fair, I did make some modifications from the original recipe as a result of need. I’ll be posting the recipe on the morrow and […]
