Spiced Cottage Cheese over Sauteed Collard Greens - Ethiopian Recipe

Whenever we go out for Ethiopian we usually get some kind of combo meal, sort of an ‘Ethiopian 101.’ Most restaurants have this, and everything we’ve ever had from that section of the menu has always been good, even if I can’t always remember the names of the things I am eating.This time we decided to try a couple of appetizers too. One of the things we got was this awesome Spiced Ethiopian Cottage Cheese served with a bit of sauteed collard greens. It was called Ayib Begomen. Ayib means cheese, and gomen means collard greens. I absolutely loved this appetizer....more

Bacon and Caramelized Onion Salad with Homemade Bacon Vinaigrette

Sometimes we all make some great decisions. Other times we make some really shitty ones… Needless to say I've made both in a period of two days. The bad decision was thinking my fiancé and I would be able to help someone out by taking care of their dog for a couple of months. I mean in reality it's really not a bad thing, but for a cat lover like me it's created two different sides of our little family. Myself and Bella (cat) on one side, Rick and Allie (dog) on the other… Who knew in two days such little four-legged creatures could create such chaos in our tiny home!...more
