How to Hard-Boil an Egg

Alright, it’s been three weeks. I’m still not sure how long I’m going to continue this whole challenge, but we’re throwing a very non-Paleo cocktail party on July 6, so that *might* be a reasonable day to break it. Then again, I do have a hankering for some ice-cream. And I have access to an … Continue reading

New Orleans: A Food Photo Journal

Last weekend was the gluttonous celebration of both my birthday and The Terrorist’s birthday, and a luxurious sweltering trip to New Orleans was just what we both needed.

But the evening that it all came together and we realized that through all our online dating consternations, we were looking for each other, I made the meal of my … Continue reading

South Indian Food Porn

In honor of my recent carb-a-licious trip to New York, we take a break from our regularly-scheduled girl-whinings and fitness-ramblings to present: South Indian Food Porn. My family is from a city on the Southeastern coast of India called Chennai, where the culture, the language, and the food are completely different from the more common … Continue reading
