Movie Date Night In With G.H. Cretors Popcorn!

June 4, 2017

Once upon a time, when Mr. Spice and I were newly married and weren’t working crazy hours, we would go to see movies all the time! Pretty much every weekend we’d go out to dinner, see a movie, and then hang out in the Borders bookstore afterwards. (I miss Borders!!) Ahhhh, those were the days! […]

Good Food Made Simple Review

May 10, 2017

I promise, one of these days I will get the hang of preparing healthy and nutritious meals from scratch every day, every meal. It’s a major life goal, really. But right now with a very active toddler on the go every minute of the day, it’s not happening. I’ve been resorting to keeping easy to […]

Salted Chocolate Caramel Bars – Bake a Difference with OXO for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and Dorie Greenspan

September 20, 2016

You guys know I am not a very confident baker, so why on earth did I decide to attempt to make chocolate shortbread and salted chocolate caramel?  Especially with a 13 month-old running around like […]

Bengali-Style Chinese Noodles

July 11, 2016

This is a comfort food dish from my childhood that I love even to this day. It would make appearances on potluck dinner tables, a welcome reprieve to all the traditional Bengali dishes like pullao, korma, dal, vegetables, various beef/chicken/fish curries. I also remember eating it for lunch with my cousins when we’d go visit […]

Tenderest Cardamom Pancakes

May 29, 2015

I’ve happily eaten yogurt for many years, but it has only been within the past few that I’ve transitioned from being merely a yogurt consumer to a yogurt user as well.  You see, it took me a while to appreciate how versatile yogurt is and how it can be used in so many different ways. […]

Don’t Be a Jerk Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Chips + Cooling Yogurt Dip

December 31, 2014

I’ve been going through a potato chip phase lately.  Usually my chips cravings tend towards the nacho cheese tortilla chip spectrum (the store-brand generic ones have MUCH more flavor!), but for the past few months, potato chips have captured my tastebuds. Jalapeno kettle chips, dill pickle flavored chips, Limon (like a spicy tangy lime), cheddar […]

*CLOSED* Late July Organic Multigrain Snacks Review and Giveaway

March 3, 2014

Nothing makes this girl happier than to come home to a big box of chips. Mr. Spice saw the box and shook his head, since I pretty much have a box from Amazon every week. Whatever. When I told him it was samples for the blog it seemed to mollify him a bit, but only […]

How are everyone’s New Year’s resolutions coming along?  Still following through or have you fallen off the wagon?  I won’t judge, I promise.  I’m plodding along — definitely more active, and trying to eat healthier, but I still like to eat too damn much!  One thing I’ve started incorporating more into my routine is fruit […]
