Shawarma Gets the “Avengers” Stamp-of-Approval

Shawarma, a Middle Eastern street food staple, makes a guest appearance in the recently released The Avengers movie. OK, it might not have a starring role, but Iron Man (a.k.a. Robert Downey Jr.) does crave some after a kick-ass battle scene. “Have you ever tried shawarma?” Iron Man asks Captain America. “There’s a shawarma joint […]

Pulled Pork Nachos

Three ingredients were the key to my survival in college: tortilla chips, shredded cheddar and chunky salsa. Armed with a Chevron card borrowed from my father, I would charge anything and everything under the sun, except actual gasoline.

Carrot Cupcakes

Often carrot cake can seem like a throw back to the ’70s, when they were dense and tasted ultimately too good for you. This updated version is moist, sweet and has a rich combination of spices that makes it one of the tastiest cakes ever. Adding a bit of orange and lemon zest to the […]

Ready for Ramps

Not long ago the appearance of asparagus announced that winter is over. But asparagus is now available year round in the supermarket, so for me it’s the arrival of ramps that tells me spring is here. Just last weekend I discovered bunches of these fragrant little plants at the Union Square Farmer’s Market and they’ll […]
