Thai red curry paste is something I always buy and recommend you do too. It’s a staple in Thai cuisine and is used in a wide range of dishes, from curries to soups and stews. It’s made by grinding together a variety of fresh herbs and spices, such as lemongrass, galangal, garlic, shallots, and chili peppers. The ingredients are blended together to create a smooth and fragrant paste that is spicy but more importantly full of flavor. I generally use it in these Crock-pot Thai Red Curry Lentils, which are cous Steph’s favorite dish ever. Thai red curry paste is also one of the key ingredients ..read more

I’m a big fan of “pantry-friendly” recipes. Though I have to admit that it’s kind of a vague term, since it doesn’t account for much of the diversity that influences what fills our cupboards. But I’m pretty sure that in almost every household you can find a can of tuna, an onion, some tomato paste, olives, parsley, and oil. That’s really all it takes to make this incredible Spicy Tuna Pesto Pasta. A low fat, tasty pasta dinner that can be rustled up in a matter of minutes from cans and packets in the pantry.

My Favorite Carrot Cake Recipe

This is the best carrot cake ever. Period. You should trust me on this one. And if you don’t believe me, ask my cousin Dan. He swears there’s no better carrot cake in the whole wide world. But let’s take a step back. To get a slice of this uh-mazing carrot cake, one would have needed to travel all the way to Berlin, take a cab to Jessnerstraße in Friedrichshain where a hipster café called “Aunt Benny” was quartered. And yes, I'm using the past tense, because sadly, the café closed in January 2020. The owners — who not only were skilled restaurateurs but apparently also had the ability of f ..read more
