Crunchy Green Beans

I grew up thinking that I hated green beans. But, I read a cookbook by Top Chef alum, Kevin Gillespie and decided to try them again. In the first chapter, he talks about how as an adult, he had all these foods that he “hated” and decided to give it a three time rule. Try […]

Homemade Chicken Curry // The Beard and The Baker

Chicken Curry

I love Indian Food, well I love the buffet at Aab. One time, I convinced The Beard to go to an Indian buffet, assuming it would be as delicious as Aab. It was terrible. Now, we only have Indian food if he makes it, which I think is a fair trade. There are a few different […]
