When I was growing up, I think my mom might have only served me meatloaf twice. I was never really a fan of it and it kind of disturbed me to see my dinner in loaf form. It just doesn’t seem natural.
It’s been a busy couple of months, but finally, after a lot of travels and after-work obligations, I’ve had the chance to make more home-cooked meals again. When I was paging through a recent edition of Real Simple, I found this recipe for red lentil dal. This is one of our favorite dishes at Odd […]
Are you frustrated with the lack of dairy-free, gluten-free, or vegan food trucks in Milwaukee? Recently, I was lucky enough to chat with Steve Perlstein and Jennifer Block, purveyors of delicious soups, salads, sandwiches, and anything else they can dream up for the fabulous new food truck, Simmer Milwaukee.

I know it was far from good for me, but my childhood memories of Kraft Mac and Cheese are fond ones. I loved the way those little fun-shaped noodles tasted. And why was it that the fun shapes tasted better than the regular? A mystery of life.
