Cuba Libre DC

My stomach is full right now, and my heart is happy.  I met up with my dear friend, Anthony, for dinner at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar.  Our original plan was to meet at Habana Village in Adams-Morgan.  However, they are not open on Tuesdays.  I was in the mood for Cuban food, so…

Chickpea/Lentil Pasta

I took a much needed break from writing these past couple weeks.  It has been a very busy month for me between work and some pressing personal deadlines.  I love writing for my blog more than I could ever explain, but I knew if I didn’t hit pause, I was going to accomplish what I…

The 12 Days of Biscotti

I took on a HUGE baking challenge for this holiday season.  Just part of that was challenging myself to make 12 different types of biscotti.  (You’ll see the other part soon).  I had some help coming up with a dozen flavors, but each were hand-crafted with love.  I turned my apartment into a mini biscotti…
