I am going to cheat for my first real post. This recipe is from my mom, and it is just too good not to share. I went to visit my mom over the weekend, and she made this delicious, simple, healthy lunch. She served salmon steaks, a watercress salad, and toasted Russian rye bread. I love Russian breads – they are very dense, chewy, and flavorful – so different than most of the breads available in the bread aisle of Shoprite. This toasted bread doesn’t even need butter on it – it has so much flavor of its own. If you ever see this type of bread in your local Russian/Polish/International deli, you should try it! (more…)
After months of Aldo telling me that I should start a food blog, I am finally taking the plunge! I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, and I love trying new ingredients. I also get really excited about making things from scratch. In this blog, I will post my recipes – from fresh takes on salads, to more complex dishes that are inspired by my Russian babushka and Aldo’s Dominican abuela 🙂
I hope that you come back to this blog to check out the new things I’ll be cooking up, and I hope that you will leave comments, tips, suggestions, and share your favorite recipes.
