Not All Food is Good.

Some weeks, we do good (see: last week). Everything we cook is delicious and perfectly seasoned and nice looking to boot. Other weeks, not so good. What sounds like a good recipe sometimes turns...

The New Kitchen!

The New Kitchen!

We’ve moved and our new kitchen is about as fantastic as apartment kitchens come. Maybe even better. Plus we got to paint it bright turquoise, and who wouldn’t love that?

Our first foray into lentils… inspired by the great Alton Brown… and I like what I tasted. Though anything simmered with onion and tossed with bacon can’t be bad, right? haha. Needless to say,...

Featherlight Chocolate Cake

Featherlight Chocolate Cake

As good as the Mocha Buttercream Cake is, I can’t enjoy it, as it is chock full of dairy in all its creamy and buttery forms. So, in addition to the massive three layer...
