Cherry Tart Manhattan

When cherries are in season, a few things come to mind. Tarts and Manhattans. To really break in the cherry, I figured I’d raise the bar with this little booze treat. Cherry Tart Manhattans.

Fiery Brussels Sprouts

Inspired by Chef Matt Cunningham’s hot appetizer from The Sinclair Kitchen, this Fiery Brussels Sprouts appetizer is an explosion of intense heat.

The Sinclair Kitchen

The timing had to be right for my first meeting with this smart beauty of a restaurant. That’s exactly how I would describe Cambridge’s Sinclair Kitchen, a smart beauty. Tucked away from tourists’ photo stops and mall stores, this venue tailors to the charm of Harvard Square and draws me in with allurement. The first vision I had of the Sinclair was back in…

Filipino Braised Ox Tail Stew – Paleo Kare Kare

I could easily say that Kare Kare is another one of my favorite Filipino dishes. Considering the nature of Filipino cuisine, it’s not unusual to favor every single thing Filipino. Calderata, Sinigang, Adobo Peppered Steak, Vegetables Stir Fry. In all these dishes I raved about how much I loved them and that they are my favorite thing. And this Paleo…
