No-Fry Cottage Cheese Fritters

Post by Mala Machado

I was chatting with a colleague the other day and she mentioned eating a salad topped with these things that I can only describe as cottage cheese fritters. She had a prettier name for it and said her family frequently made them. Totally sounded so delicious but when I got home, I couldn’t remember any […]

Easy Everyday Salad Dressing

Post by Mala Machado

I really dislike buying salad dressing. If your house is anything like ours, then you know the next 2 stories by heart. 1) You open a bottle and get one good use out of it. Oh wait! I could be exaggerating. Maybe you’ll get two whole uses out of it. Then, it hits your fridge and somehow migrates to the […]

Bosnian Pita – Spinach & Cheese

Post by Mala Machado

At a previous job, I had the pleasure of working with a sweet Bosnian girl. Conversation, as it does with me, turned to food and I asked her what she enjoys cooking for her new husband. This is when she introduced me to the idea of a Bosnian dish called Pita. Not like pee-tah (how […]

Seriously Twisted Cucumber Sandwich

Post by Mala Machado

This is a SERIOUSLY twisted cucumber sandwich. No soft, white, crust-less bread. No light, simple flavors. It’s definitely not the sandwich at your grandma’s tea party. Instead, this sandwich brings it with complex, fresh, flavors, a big crunch, and even a fried egg! The fresh flavors of cucumbers and pea sprouts combine with the mild tones of provolone and […]

Lavender & Blueberry Honey Ice Cream (Eggless)

Post by Mala Machado

It’s winter and if you know me, even a little, you know that I’m miserable in the winter. So, as I planned for a recent visit from my family in Florida, I found myself really, really, longing for the Florida weather of my childhood. An escape from all this dreary winter! Strangely enough, ice cream came […]

Pav Bhaji – Mala Style

Post by Mala Machado

Ahhhh…pav bhaji…spicy, buttery, and filling. I just can’t get enough. Pav Bhaji has very meager origins – as a melange of left over vegetables for a quick meal in the working class – and because of that, it’s generally very dense in carbs and calories. Pav Bhaji started out on the west coast of India […]

Spaghetti Squash with Thyme and Mushroom

Post by Mala Machado

Spaghetti squash is an answer to the pasta conundrum. Not THE answer…but it’s a great crutch. Lots of people remove meat from their diets and suddenly find themselves surviving on cheese and pasta alone. That is not healthy. I realize that it’s difficult to become a vegetarian on your own, without family support and/or as an adult, after you […]

Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Post by Mala Machado

I didn’t really grow up eating brussels sprouts. That strange, mushy grayish green thing that cartoons complained about was enough for me to know that I could live life without ever trying them…until one day, I did. I don’t know why I let these little guys into my life, but boy, I am so glad I did. […]
