Meatless Monday: Tomatokeftedes (Tomato Balls) with Tzatziki Zucchini Pasta

August 6th, 2013 by

The first night that we arrived to Santorini, it was pretty late. Our flight had been delayed and we had been traveling for more than 18 hours, but we were determined  to eat something Greek. So, we dropped our bags off at the hotel and walked 5 minutes to a local spot called Anoti Restaurant. We […]

Zucchini Noodle Review: Gustorganics (NYC)

August 3rd, 2013 by

Unfortunately, not many mainstream restaurants have spiralized pastas on their menu.. According to my research in NYC so far, the only restaurants that serve spiralized dishes are generally the vegan/vegetarian ones. Once I started this blog, I vowed to uncover every spiralized dish in the greater NYC area. Feel free to send me leads if you […]

Meatless Monday: Zucchini Spaghetti and Sriracha Fried Eggs

July 29th, 2013 by

Mark Bittman, a food columnist for the New York Times, wrote an article in 2008 about “Spaghetti Fried Eggs,” an adaptation from a dish published by Arthur Schwartz (once the NY Daily News restaurant critic and food editor.) Often referred to ask “the poor man’s spaghetti,” this simple meal formerly consisted of not much more […]

Zucchini Pasta Made for Men

July 24th, 2013 by

I met this really cool chick at the cooking demo I did in Hoboken a couple weeks back. Like me, she’s a blogger. Unlike me, she’s a newlywed! Her blog, Life a la Wife, chronicles her adventures living with her new hubby! Alyssa loves to eat healthy, be active and live life to its fullest…. […]

Meatless Monday: Grilled Ricotta Spaghetti & Brussel Sprouts with Butter Beans and Sundried Tomatoes

July 22nd, 2013 by

It’s another Meatless Monday and what vegetable better to hold its own than the brussel sprout? For me, it was love at first sight. I will never truly understand why people dread these little guys. They’re so mysterious – are they a baby cabbage? Are they miniature heads of lettuce? They always keep me guessin’. […]

Inspiralized Dinner Party with HobokenGirl

July 18th, 2013 by

If you’ve been following my Twitter or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been spending some time with Jen from HobokenGirl (a Hoboken blog geared towards girls). So, what’s up with that? Well, besides the fact that she’s a cool Jersey chick with an adorable French bulldog pup named Pierre, her audience happens to be perfect […]

Spinach, Mushroom and Turkey Bacon Pasta (Zucchini Pasta)

July 16th, 2013 by

This whole eating meat again thing gets better and better each day. I’m taking it slowly – I think filet mignon will be the last thing I try, as I baby step into a carnivorous lifestyle (after my nearly 5 year hiatus.) Today’s baby step: cook with bacon. Of course, I couldn’t just jump right […]

Bikini Bolognese

July 9th, 2013 by

Giada, you would be so proud. I just made a divine turkey bolognese. I’ll be honest, I’ve never made turkey bolognese, so I did a lot of Googling (and went first to Giada, duh). Luckily, it was one of those fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants days… everything I added to the skillet seemed so….. right. One of the reasons […]

July 2nd, 2013 by

Welcome to our first Tasting Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I will be posting up a new recipe – no theme, just something I am “testing” for my cookbook (yes, I’m writing a cookbook – more to come on that!) Obviously, I love to share my recipes and LOVE hearing feedback from readers. In many Tasting Tuesdays, […]
