  What do you think of when you think of vegetables?  Do flashbacks of your childhood spring up?  A stern parent pointing their finger at you while threatening no dessert if you don’t finish your greens?  Does your imagination conjure up something dull, lifeless and tasteless?  Something frozen or from a can?  Something you eat…

Beer Brisket

    In high school, my husband was quite the sweet talker.  I wouldn’t know since I was on a different continent entirely so I did not witness his charms or any of the other awkward phases of youth we all suffer through.  Instead I just heard the stories, which were corroborated by his family. …

Chicken Fajitas

      Let me preface this by saying that I know fajitas were originally made with skirt steak.  Some food purists would argue that steak is the only way to have fajitas but I disagree.  You gotta change with the times if you to stay current and fajitas NEED to stay current.  They are…

Lamb and Butter Bean Stew

         If you ever find yourself near a Yemeni restaurant, definitely go in.  We recently discovered this unique and wonderful cuisine from a local restaurant here in Malaysia and it soon became our favorite take out spot.  A mixture of Middle Eastern with Indian flavors and influences here and there and very…
