Panko-crusted Salmon & Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

Tonight was our fist time making dinner at Julia’s new studio apartment! Although it’s a small kitchen to work with, the appliances are all brand new which is a big plus. There is also a new addition to the cooking-at-Julia’s apartment experience…a kitchen table! We didn’t have one at her old apartment, and it is… Continue reading Panko-crusted Salmon & Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

Cheesy Pizza with Sweet Potato, Onions, and Kale

Tonight we got a little more creative with pizza-making, cooking up a less-traditional sweet potato pizza with caramelized onions and kale, another great Pinterest find from The Type A Housewife.com: http://thetypeahousewife.com/2011/03/recipe-sweet-potato-pizza-with-kale-and-caramelized-onions.html We have been wanting to try kale for a while since it’s supposed to be so good for you, and since we both love sweet potatoes… Continue reading Cheesy Pizza with Sweet Potato, Onions, and Kale

First Post- Moroccan Style Lamb with Chickpeas

It was a great chance to try out Philippe’s new DSLR camera and gave us the idea to start blogging about all our culinary conquests! We hope to post at least once or twice a week… Continue reading First Post- Moroccan Style Lamb with Chickpeas
