An ongoing exploration of taste.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

I am a diehard New York Giants football fan and one of my favorite things about football, are all the great foods you get to eat on game day. It’s almost like for that one day a week, you can eat all this delicious, not so healthy food, and not feel bad about it because football and snacks go together like Gin and tonic (that’s the saying right?) One classic dish, which at least incorporates some vegetables in it, is my Spinach and Artichoke Dip. I make mine on the healthier side, while most recipes call for an entire package of Cream Cheese; I make mine with a mixture of lower-fat but tasty ingredients.

Indian Spiced Nuts

This is probably one of the most addictive recipes I have and will be loved by everyone because of the great flavors that it encompasses. It will satisfy both the sweet tooth and the savory tongue and will leave you wanting more. It’s a great dish to have out during a party or while watching the game or it’s a great snack for during the day while at work.


While shopping this weekend on our weekly Whole Foods run, I was greeted by a display of beautiful fresh basil plants at the entrance to the building. This basil plant was just calling to me to take it home and make delicious meals with it’s leaves - and so that’s what I did…and that’s how Baby Basil came into my life an inspired this weekend’s appetizer to pair with a glass of wine: Italian Bruschetta. Bruschetta can be made in many different ways, but personally, I like mine with cheese on it… everything’s better with cheese! So here’s my take on a classic Italian appetizer (or side dish!)
