Molokhia Soup Recipe

Molokhia Soup Recipe

Eat like a Pharaoh! I don’t care how you spell it (Molokhia, Molokheya, Mulukhiya) or what you call it (Jews Mallow, Jute Mallow, Mallow Leaves) because regardless of the name, this is one of my favorite comfort foods. It is a traditional Egyptian soup that was typically eaten by royalty in Ancient Egypt, but eventually … Continue reading

Pasta Primavera Recipe

Pasta Primavera Recipe

I’m kind of an idiot when it comes to Spring. My favorite season is the fall because it’s not as hot and humid as the Summer, which is great for a bigger guy like me that isn’t at his most attractive when damp. On the other hand, I always get excited for the Spring even … Continue reading

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

A while ago, a friend told me that he made himself some spicy tofu lettuce wraps. I never really got the full recipe from him, but he did tell me generally what he used to make them. I made some slight ingredient modifications and created my own recipe during Lent one year. Now, I’m not … Continue reading

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving is one of those great American holidays that no matter what religion or non-religion you are, we can all celebrate it. It’s a time to give thanks for all we have and for those we have in our lives to share it with. Every year since I was about 6 years old, my immediate … Continue reading

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

Soup is not a meal (unless it’s real Ramen or Pho) so let’s just get that out in the open right now.  Nonetheless, this butternut squash soup came out so absurdly well that I would consider eating it as a light meal (or a hefty snack) with some toasted bread. I don’t know what made … Continue reading

Goat Cheese and Arugula Pizza (with Chicken)

Goat Cheese and Arugula Pizza (with Chicken)

While out with some friends in Providence, RI, we had dinner at Union Station Brewery (owned by John Harvard’s Brewery and Ale House).  The food was decent, but one of the dishes, a personal arugula and goat cheese white pizza made me want to try re-creating it at home. I didn’t go with a white … Continue reading

Caprese Salad and Proscuitto Sandwich

Caprese Salad and Proscuitto Sandwich

This is one of my favorite foods of all time and I especially love it in sandwich form, so this is a two-part blog.  Caprese salad is of Italian origin and is absurdly simple to make.  It’s just fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and a little dressing. It’s just a great dish for when … Continue reading

Pico de Gallo Salsa

Pico de Gallo Salsa

This is a labor of love in salsa form. I learned the basic variation of this pico de gallo recipe from two of my long time friends. They made the salsa together and served it with tortilla chips at a cookout where the main feature was grilled clams in their shells. At this barbecue, I … Continue reading

Chipotle Flavored Pinto Beans Recipe

Chipotle Flavored Pinto Beans Recipe

These spicy and flavorful beans are absurdly easy to make.  I made them for the first time with just what I had lying around the house.  The chipotle peppers really make this dish, but the Canadian Bacon really added another element and depth to the flavor.  I often make these beans to serve with any … Continue reading

Hummus (Authentic)

Hummus (Authentic)

Making hummus is more of an art than a science… At least that’s what I was led to believe whenever I asked my mother for a solid hummus recipe.  Instead, the only knowledge I gained was about what was in hummus and what it should taste like.  Based on that, I had to just keep … Continue reading

Baked Eggplant with Sausage Stuffing

Baked Eggplant with Sausage Stuffing

Halved eggplant with tomato sauce, cheese, and sausage stuffing.  Disclaimer: I did not write this recipe, but I did edit the format.  It is a guest blogger’s recipe and it does look tasty! Ingredients: 1 carrot sliced  (60 cal.) 1/2 onion diced (60 cal.) 1 can diced tomato (100 cal.) 1 tbsp olive oil (120 cal.) … Continue reading
