The First Step to Changing Your Life Is Talking About It.

Indian Summer Salad

Finally, a recipe! For those of you who didn’t know, I was organizing my kitchen this week, which resulted in a lot of anxiety and not a lot of cooking. But everything is finally back in order, and just in time for the holidays. Alas, now I can actually make something semi-presentable for blogging. Yesterday […]

I’ve loved learning about traditional Persian dishes–the only problem is some of the preparations are very tedious, and definitely not ideal for […]

Not Your Average Stuffed Peppers

Welcome to We’re Talking About Food’s first post! One thing you should understand about my cooking style is that I’m an intuitive chef.
