“Build a sandwich around 3 ingredients that start with the letters B.L.T.” that was the directive for this month’s challenge. And you know we’re not talking bacon, lettuce and tomato! Continue Reading
Yeah, this won’t win an award for food styling but, you can rest assured, it’s packed with flavor and tricks to limit starch while still enjoying a plate of pasta. Continue Reading
I stopped for lunch at Japango in Boca Raton. I was mildly aware of this strip mall restaurant which has been around for a while, but I’d never ventured in.
I wanted something light. I thought sushi would be perfect. It was, but in a way I never expected.
This was the meal that never ended! Continue Reading
Rich, briny, full of protein and unctuous healthy fats. See ingredients. Continue Reading
Yeah, I know. Crab-stuffed flounder has been done for time immemorial, but not here. And … in typical FOODalogue fashion, it veers slightly offtrack with a decidedly Italian flair.
While protein is usually the star of most meals, this dish is equally about the accompaniments and I must admit … the sauce was killer! Continue Reading
Yes, apple is present everywhere in this dish!
I always try to take the theme of these challenges to some place different … some place unexpected. I knew immediately it would be featured in a savory dish: (1) for the obvious reason that I’m not a dessert-maker and (2) I love the yin and yang of sweet and savory.

It generally turns into one of those ”what was I thinking?” moments.
A package of frozen Wild Pacific Salmon Burgers seemed like a good idea for a quick and healthy meal. But after trying the first one, I was underwhelmed. And since it was a Costco purchase, you know there was more than 1 burger in that package. I had to get creative. Continue Reading
When I first started working in Manhattan and could afford to eat out with my friends, I remember going to a pub-like place where the specialty was Blue Fish. It was always served with a baked potato. And I always ordered it.
Fast forward a lot of years and life finds me living in Florida. I was told Blue Fish was a cold-water fish (though Wikipedia says differently) and I never saw it on a menu or at the market again
Until one day … Continue Reading
