    Cooking together

    For New Year’s I spent a few days up in the mountains with my closest people. It was a long weekend of cooking, eating, playing, and laughing. Getting away from the noise of the city and going into nature to make our own is a great way to reset and start the new year with […]

    2022 brought me to many places, and this café in Porto is one of them. I took beans back home, some of which were from Latin America; I can’t help but find it funny that I’m bringing Latin American beans back to the New World.

    Improvising with a chickpea stew.

    I had a plan for last week, but I treated it more like a framework. Part of the plan included buying ingredients for a set of dishes that I thought would fill my week (and me) nicely. So far I’ve made the tuna salads, mash with meatballs, and this warm and soft chickpea stew. While […]
