Fresh Veggie Stackers

Fresh Veggie Stackers

This is one of our go to recipes. We love making these on busy week nights as well as lazy Sundays. We don’t go out and buy things specifically for these too often. Most of the time we just see what we have on hand […]

Grilled Avocado and Vegetable Tacos

Grilled Avocado and Vegetable Tacos

When I think of summer, I think of grilled vegetables. The smoky flavor that penetrates into the vegetable as they cook over the coals is what I dream of during the cold months. These tacos bring that flavor to the forefront by giving the grilled […]

Spicy Jalapeño Sauce

Spicy Jalapeño Sauce

This sauce is one of the most versatile sauces you can make. The cilantro and lime add a very refreshing flavor to any Mexican or southwest dish. The heat from the jalapeños hit you at the end with a nice burn that is not over […]

Vegetarian Dumplings (Pot Stickers)

Vegetarian Dumplings (Pot Stickers)

One of my favorite foods is Dim Sum (Chinese bite sized dishes), But to be honest it isn’t always possible to order in or to eat out (especially when we are on a budget).  So I decided to make some (sum- haha). I know a […]

Totchos

Totchos

The popularity of this dish has sky rocketed in the past few years, especially in the NYC area. Although it is pretty basic, Alissa and I make this when we just need something quick for dinner. I realize it is not the healthiest meal out there, […]

Shaved Asparagus and Lemon Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Shaved Asparagus and Lemon Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Want to be the talk of the brunch scene? Yeah. Make this! Along with being reasonably easy this quiche is awesome. The thyme and the lemon are a perfect match for the tender spring asparagus and onions and I haven’t even talked about the crust […]

Caponata with a Kick

Caponata with a Kick

To be very honest I had never heard of this dish until I moved to Brooklyn. Although caponata has the ability to stand on its own with its complex flavors, it also mixes well in a variety of other dishes. I recommend putting it on […]

Vegetarian “Meatball” Sub

Vegetarian “Meatball” Sub

These “meatballs” pack a punch both in terms of taste and defeating hunger. The garlic and fresh basil burst with flavor in your mouth with every bite. They can be either baked or fried.  We have done both, and love them either way.  Whichever way […]

Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers

Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers

This is a unique and inviting twist on a traditional recipe. The tanginess of the cheese and salty olives combined with the filling lentils and quinoa makes this a delicious and very hearty meal. The whipped tahini garnish lends a creamy texture to blend all […]

Whipped Tahini

Whipped Tahini

We love tahini.  Then we found whipped tahini.  Wow.  It is so rich and tangy.  Just simply delicious especially when paired with salty or savory dishes.  It really can be used for just about anything- chopped veggies, pita chips, or any Mediterranean cuisine.  We can’t […]
