Some of you may know that while I run this food and cocktail blog, my partner Alona runs the travel blog, Jet Set Together. This means I do quite a lot of traveling (and eating) all over the world. One of my favorite things to…

I lived in China for four years, and while I don’t particularly like most Chinese foods there are still a few dishes I absolutely love. I would eat these garlic pork string beans at least once a week. They are the perfect side dish, or…

Indian Bread Omelet

Indian Bread Omelet

So last week I followed the trend and made the wildly popular 1932 depression-era Peanut Butter Bread. I figure, it seemed to do really well on my blog, so why not follow the trend this week and try this Indian Bread Omelet. To be honest…
