What I Learned From My Whole30 Experiment

When I first heard about Whole30, I thought it was crazy and quickly dismissed it as something I would never try. It requires 100% compliance 100% of the time, and there are way too many restrictions: no dairy, no grains, no sugar, no soy, no legumes ...more

This Gazpacho Reminds Me of the Day I Discovered Spanish Food

The first time I ate gazpacho was one of these authentically untraditional (rather unusual and un-Spanish, too) experiences. It wasn't that the gazpacho tasted untraditional (or unusual or un-Spanish). But where I found it—and the spot where I sat ...more

The Internet is pretty mad at Beyoncé right now. Earlier this month on “Good Morning America” she “unveiled” that her vegan diet helped her lose weight and keep it off her self-described naturally curvy body.

Fast Fry Beef and Kale

This meal is so easy and so fast you wonder how it can satisfy your hungry crew. That is precisely the beauty of this dish. I used the kale from my kitchen garden and threw it in a little at a time so some bits were cooked but still a little crunchy.In our usual Not Too Sweet style I also made a vegetarian option. For me, I substituted the meat for cubed extra firm tofu. We then finished the dish off with a classic caesar salad....more

A Cheat Treat Of Teochew Style Braised Meat, Chicken Liver and Egg

I love eating completely braised eggs where the sauce gets right through and all around them. I always feel cheated whenever I buy a superficially braised or Chinese Tea egg where the outside looks perfectly browned and the inside tastes all bland and  makes you go ‘bleah’. I call that outright deprivation....more
