Over the last few years I’ve simplified the way I cook at home.

Have you ever experienced a new dish or meal at a restaurant and can't forget about it? A few years ago I ate at an Indo-Chinese restaurant. It was the first time I've had Indian - Chinese fusion. I love Indian and Chinese...but I'd never expeienced them together. The...

When there's a mixture of rain and snow coming down outside, there's nothing cozier than a big bowl of spicy turkey chili!

The internet has thousands of chili recipes. I get it. But I've missed sharing recipes with you (other than a few over on Insta), and this one real...

Hey, hey!

Have you ever had one of those restaurant experiences where you ate the most amazing dish and keep thinking about it? That happened to me while I was visiting New Orleans for a conference in May. I traveled with my friend, Amari, and we skipped the conference...

I think my system is in a little bit of shock with the cold, snowy weather we've had the last few days. I head to Phoenix this weekend and can't wait to get there - the weather is in the 90's! Until then, I can't help but crave hearty meals to warm me up. Today I'm sha...

When I put on a big pot of soup to cook it's because I want to eat something warm, hearty and comforting. I'm one of those rare people who enjoys eating soup year round, even in the middle of summer. Weather is in great flux this time of year and Chicago is experiencin...

Happy Sunday, everyone! Are you enjoying the beautiful weather we are having? Yesterday, I took some time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and it felt SO good.  Instead of heading to my usual Saturday class at my yoga studio I took my mat out into the sun to do a...
