Truth me told I’ve never tried a Black Bean Burger prior to making one for this post.
Beets have always puzzled me. They are REALLY good for you (my grandmother once told me they are like laundry detergent for your body as they are loaded in antioxidants and help cleanse your liver) so I’ve always wanted to incorporate them into more recipes, but never quite sure how. I see them at the […]
In my visits to the islands, I have always enjoyed the coleslaw they serve there- slightly sweet, with raisins and not too much mayo.

It’s partly because I’m so in love with Francis Mallman’s cookbook 7 Fires where he shows us Argentinian grilling techniques of grilling over a Chapa, which is like cooking on a griddle over a big wood fire.

I really love deviled eggs. I’ve been on a hiatus of making them though for the past 5 years or so because my husband is so weird about eggs. However, we had a party over Christmas and I knew these would be a hit. I got the idea from a friend who brought these to […]
