Gluten-Free & Paleo-ish in Japan

Just about a year ago, my mom and brother visited me in Japan. We had a wonderful time traveling, but I was a little worried about food. I wasn’t sure how adventurous they would be, as it was their first international trip. But I was super proud of how flexible they were and how willing […]

Crockpot Magic

I’m not a recipe developer. If I had endless time and an army to feed (also known as living with my immediate family again), then I could spend weeks creating the same recipe and tweaking it to my needs. The reality is that I live alone and I have a day job. So I only […]

Fast, Easy, Indian Summer Meal Ideas

Hi friends! I really hope Indian Summer is PC, because I’ve always liked that term. To me it speaks of the golden days of September, where summer’s warmth still lingers but also holds the promise of the comforts of fall. It reminds me of picking wildflowers at my grandparents’ house and coming home from the […]

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: Inaugural Post!

I’ve been feeling a bit guilty because things have been light on the recipe posts of late. Mostly I’ve been channeling my free time into writing and developing new materials for the re-launch of Eat, Recycle, Repeat on Tuesday, September 18th! In the meantime, I’ve been eating pretty much the same thing, or making food […]

Laarb-inspired Summer Salad

This…this makes my heart sing. The color, the different textures, even the fun shapes! I eat salad every day, but there is something particularly exciting about summer salads. Cool, refreshing, wholesome, and extra tasty with all the super fresh produce, I’ll munch my way through salads all summer long. For the past month or so, […]

Traveler’s Chicken

It’s my dream to wind my way through North Africa and the Middle East – Morocco, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, maybe Afghanistan – and stuff myself. That’s right – an eating adventure. I rave about any sort of food from that region, tagines with lemony chicken and olives, lamb and […]

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta & Spring Vegetables + Our first giveaway!

Last night my friend asked me what my favorite thing was in my fridge at that time. I couldn’t come up with a good response until today. Leftovers. Leftovers are glorious. My usual strategy is to cook two big meals on the weekend: turkey & vegetable soup, maybe a Thai, Nepalese or Indian curry, or […]

Anatomy of a Salad

I was trying to decide what recipe to post this week. I wanted to share something that I eat often, and finally it dawned on me: salad. I eat it every day, sometimes twice a day as lunch and part of dinner. And I NEVER, ever get tired of it. When I travel for a […]

Chicken Update + Breakfast Lettuce Wraps

Do you know what this is? Factory farm food! From this slightly controversial, rather brazen blog, “Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made [of] – things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically, the entire chicken is smashed […]

Balsamic Roasted Vegetable and Chicken Salad + Simple Lime Vinaigrette

Next to turkey, which is sadly not so popular and readily available in Japan, chicken is my go-to meat source, a favorite since childhood. I love it in soups, stews, stir-frys, broiled, grilled, pounded flat and stuffed, wrapped in (clean) bacon…it is so versatile I haven’t tired of it or the numerous ways to prepare […]
