Cauliflower and Chickpea Curry

Caitlin Alaina - October 24, 2017

Living abroad and experiencing different foods and flavors definitely gives me inspiration in the kitchen. I’ve always loved curries but traditional Indian curries are heavy and require hard to access spices. This recipe is quick, easy and healthy but still bursting with flavor!

Cookie Dough Truffle Easter Eggs

Caitlin Alaina - March 22, 2016

I adore holidays. Family, traditions, food, decorations, games, laughter, and celebrating the true meaning of each special day… I love it all! Living overseas often proves challenging to create a memorable holiday. Turkey doesn’t celebrate American or Christian holidays so Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter can seem like just another day. To combat the lack of holiday spirit surrounding us, I like to come up with fun …
