Avocado Toast w/ Apple Cider Vinegar Poached Eggs

The key to a good day is a good breakfast. Everyone has heard this since when they were a kid. I think we take for granted sometimes our dreary bowl of cereal or a lonely cup of coffee as our only breakfast. And if you’re the yoga-attending, spandex-wearing, wine drunk at 4pm kinda person reading…

Roasted Chicken w/ Potatoes and Onions

Hopefully, if you are reading this have read my previous post about having dinner with my girlfriend. If not, it was Baked Salmon with Wasabi/Honey Panko.

Burgers @ Trackside Station, East Stroudsburg

On one of my excursions up to the Poconos to visit my friend and occasional trouble making companion, Nalin, we ventured out toward East Stroudsburg for a place for lunch.

Gujarati Shrimp

The Dadarwalas have been very kind to me over the years. Nalin and I have been friends since high school, and we have been causing trouble for about eight years now. I am proud that we call each other friends, but even more proud that when we walk into each other’s home, we yell “Mom!…

The Pickleback
