Cocktail Hour: October Favs

Happy Halloween, Foodies! Welcome to my first Cocktail Hour! This is something I’ve been wanting to start for a while. A weekly conversational piece to discuss both food and life in general, outside of my recipe posts. Each week I’m going to pick a topic to write about from either my personal list of ideas…

Butternut Squash Soup with Brown Butter Apples + Savory Granola

Hey Foodies! You ever have one of those days? You know the spilled coffee all over your favorite shirt, found out your computer charger is broken, can’t find a quiet place to work (even though you’re at a library???),  and now it’s 1 PM and you haven’t accomplished anything, kind of day? Yeah, me too….

Caramel Stuffed Dark Chocolate Cookies+ Orange Zest Sugar

Hey Foodies! Hope you all had a spook-tastic Halloweekend and you’re not too candied out. We’ve got a long holiday season ahead of us and that means sweets on sweets on sweets. We should really be thinking of Halloween as the kick off to sugar season. You have to start building up your sugar tolerance…

Pasta: A Five Part Series. Part 4; Shapes

Happy Halloweekend Foodies! I hope you all love Halloween as much as I do. How could you not? For one, you can shamelessly binge all three Halloweentown movies and all eight Harry Potter movies.

Pasta: A Five Part Series. Part 3: Printed Pastas

Hellooooo Foodies! As always, I hope you’re having a wonderful week. It’s been a pretty crazy week here in Doha, if you haven’t heard it rained! Not just like a couple of sprinkles, it was a full on thunderstorm and the most rainfall in the history of Qatar. As you can imagine, it was full-blown…

Pasta: A Five Part Series. Part 2: Colors

Hey Foodies! Welcome back! I hope you’re having a wonderful week, enjoying the autumn weather. What have you been cooking since the season changed? Maybe a nice chicken and wild rice soup?

Pasta: A Five Part Series. Part 1: Pasta Dough and Basics

Hey foodies! Hope you’re having a great day. If you’re not, you came to the right place. I say that because you’re here to learn about making pasta which, to me, is the best form of therapy. Along with baking. Which is one of the many reasons why I wanted to do this five-part series….

I’m Back Ya’ll!

Greetings friends, Popping in to let everyone know, I’m back! I took a little unexpected break this summer, so here’s what’s been up. After leaving Doha, I decided to take a little uninterrupted time to travel with Arlo. We hadn’t seen each other in 100 days and having time to be together without work or…

My Favorite Doha Eats
