Chickpea & Tuna Salad

Chickpea & Tuna Salad

The other week, we went to Gocciolina, a wonderful Italian restaurant in Durham. While there, I ate the best chickpeas I’ve ever had in my life.

Coconut Rice

This. Is. Delicious. We’ve been eating a ton of rice lately, mainly because it’s super easy to make in one batch and then use as a base for more flavorful toppings. Plus, I just love rice. We have a giant bag of Thai Jasmine rice from Costco and have made a serious dent in it over … Continue reading

Triple Play: Pizza, Pizza, and Enchiladas

Triple Play: Pizza, Pizza, and Enchiladas

Few things are more exciting than build-your-own bars – taco bars, Bloody Mary bars, ice cream sundae bars, omelette stations…basically, you name it and chances are that I am excited about it. Unfortunately, such a smorgasbord of options is generally impractical to do at home. Particularly when cooking for a whopping two people. Thankfully, we recently had … Continue reading
