I love white beans – and normally eat them with a touch of olive oil, and Parmesan cheese and  a dash of cilantro. But today I am craving a soup – and this one is perfect, minus the Crockpot, but for sure with a few slice of rustic baguette and a bottle of cab. INGREDIENTS […]

Food: Dinner Tonight – Oven Fried Chicken

There are two things I love – Korean BBQ short ribs, and fried or battered chicken of sorts.

Food: Dinner Tonight – Butternut Squash Pizza

A few weeks ago I had food poisoning from a chicken salad I bought for lunch. The same one I normally ordered from an organically sustainable eatery in downtown.  After that incident, I haven’t craved meat and the idea of seafood makes my stomach turn. Not sure what happened, but it’s as if my stomach […]
