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!

Quick Cucumber Pickle Salad

I'm not quite sure what to call this. I get a lot of cucumbers through my farm share, and this is something I'll make sometimes when I'm tired of having them plain. This is milder than a pickle, and goes well with Asian and Indian food.

Yu Hsiang Beef Noodles

The first time I had food flavored with Yu Hsiang was at Mary Chung's in Central Square, and it immediately became one of my favorites. The sauce is a sweet and hot and garlicky, and goes well with just about any kind of stir fry. I attempted to make it at home, and the result was so successful I made it again the next day.
