Where, Oh Where Have I Been?

I know I’ve neglected the blog lately.  Things have been just a wee bit nuts, between all the holiday hecticness and engagement excitement. Things are also extremely busy at work.

Green Tea Cookies

I love this picture. It has that old timey Christmasy feel.  My friend Mako’s sister knows I LOVE green tea, and she’s always very sweet and sends me packages of green tea from Japan. This last time she sent me Matcha (green tea powder). Matcha has been popping up all over the blogosphere in baked […]

WHHFD: Saag Paneer Lasagna

This past weekend I held the first official dinner party at my house. One of the guests was vegetarian, so I took the opportunity to try out this recipe that I had bookmarked in the latest addition to my cookbook library, Cooking With All Things Trader Joe’s.  The recipe called out to me because of its […]
