Broccoli Calzone

Broccoli Calzones for #SundaySupper

It’s Oscar time! I’m not a big movie buff, so I’m not big into watching the show, but I do love a great Oscar viewing party with nibbles and fancy cocktails. I love any reason to gather around for hours of eating and drinking with television as background noise (e.g. the Super Bowl, award shows, pageant parties, and er, election results?) Today the #SundaySupper family... read more →

Chinese Almond Cookies for Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! 2015 marks the year of the goat/sheep/ram and that’s my sign! I’ve never been one for astrology but in the spirit of the new year I read this little profile on the sign of the goat. Even though I’m not a “believer”, I am married to a horse (allegedly a compatible sign), got engaged in February (a goat’s lucky numbers are... read more →

Interestingly, despite my love for meatballs, it was only recently that... read more →

After Casablanca, A Simple Chicken Fried Rice for #WeekdaySupper

Using up leftovers and weekday supper, it’s a win-win! Using up the perishable foods in... read more →

Creamy, Cheesy, Cauliflower & Sausage Casserole #SundaySupper

I’m the first to admit that casseroles are not my strength. I didn’t grow up eating casseroles because my mom’s cooking is grounded in Taiwanese techniques and flavors. Because casseroles don’t really bring back childhood memories, they don’t pop into my mind when I’m looking for new recipes. But, I do love the idea of casseroles, especially in the winter when the warmth of the... read more →
Moroccan Bessara

Moroccan Bessara Soup #WeekdaySupper

It’s eating in instead’s blogiversary! Three years! I’ve done a little growing up since my first post in 2012. Even with the celebration of eating in instead’s 3rd blogiversary, all of the over-eating and over-drinking in the last two months has me ready to get back to normal food. It’s not just Thanksgiving and the ramp up to Christmas that’s gotten to me; Omar and I celebrate our... read more →
