About

A blog about cooking and food, and how to make it taste good and be healthy. The dishes are almost all gluten/dairy free, and many are vegetarian. The focus is on techniques and ingredients over recipes - this is about everyday cooking, and that means making it work with whats on hand!

Thai(ish) Pork Kebabs

This dish is one I like to make when I find quality ground pork. Because it's winter, I pan-fried it, but I usually make these on the grill (and on sticks). Pork has a wonderful taste on its own, and in this dish it is complemented by southeast Asian flavors.

Baby Bok Choy with Sausage


One of the things I like about good Asian grocery stores is that they have a wide variety of green vegetables. Baby bok choy is one of my favorites - it grills well and also works in stir fries like this one.  I like simple protein/vegetable/grain combinations, because they encourage healthy eating while also being filling and tasting good and fast and easy to cook.

Lemongrass Chicken

The chicken in this tangy dish is covered with flavorful chunks of garlic, ginger, and lemongrass. Its easy to make, and its strong flavor complements rice and steamed vegetables.
