I got back from Romania earlier this week (more about that later, I promise!). I usually come back from vacation feeling very inspired in the kitchen, but the food in Romania? Umm, not that great   Read More ...

I have limited experience with eggplant and my brother and cousin still give me a hard time about these eggplant and blue cheese paninis I made for dinner one night in college. They were less than stellar. After that experience, I pretty much gave up on eggplant for a while,   Read More ...
