This morning, instead of my usual yogurt and fruit, I craved some combination of eggs, vegetables, and cheese. I opted for asparagus, which I love but don’t use often. Honestly, I forget about asparagus. I saw it in the market yesterday and we had a beautiful reunion. It goes wonderfully with eggs, and I love the way the stalks keep their slight crunchiness when sauteed. Read More

Looking to spruce up your usual summer potato salad? By adding just a couple special ingredients or even changing the type of potato, you can bring that ordinary potato salad back to life.

The cinnamon gives it an earthy fall flavor, but the lime kicks it back into the sunny season we all love. I prefer it to regular potato salad because sweet potato can be more flavorful and dimensional, as well as healthier because of its fiber content.

With only a few ingredients and a relatively short baking time, it falls under my favorite category of Easy/Cheap/Delicious. Read More

I spent three and a half months living in Venice, Italy when I was twenty, in the fall of 2007. It was a rare and fascinating experience considering most people breeze through the city for a week or two to hit the tourist spots and take a gondola ride.

I was still there after the tourists got too hot, the weather got too cold, the water got too high. In my weeks spent wandering the streets, exploring different neighborhoods, and trying to get beyond the frustrating layer of tourists, I found a sliver of the authentic Venice. Read More
