Hey, it’s my bloggerversary. I know, a year already? I’m totally shocked I haven’t abandoned this thing yet.  I’d like to thank all of you that read and comment and generally make me feel less socially awkward. You guys are the very best. So I decided to make some chicken soup for this special occasion. […]

Vietnamese Tomato Rice Soup with Shrimp

Vietnamese Tomato Rice Soup with Shrimp | NutrientsYouFools.com

This isn’t your average deli-style tomato rice soup. It’s brightened up with lemongrass, lime, fresh herbs, and insanely good ramps. If you want the old fashioned tomato rice soup, use Google — you will find lots. What you won’t find lots of is a Vietnamese style tomato rice soup… because I kind of invented it. […]

Birthday Butter Mochi Cake

I spent a month in Hawaii this past fall. I know, I know, that’s horribly obnoxious, but it was wonderful and relaxing and I needed it. Trust me, I’m kind of neurotic. Nothing has calmed my scattered, high-strung soul quite as well. The beaches, the sun, the food… I realize I’m getting more annoying with […]

Spring is officially here, and that means something other than kale at the farmers’ market. I’m kind of getting to the point where I literally can’t with kale anymore. Same goes for chard and collard greens. It’s time for something new. Time for crisp lettuces, bitter greens, peppery radishes, and sweet strawberries. While I’m used […]

Persian Jeweled Rice: Javaher Polow

Persian Jeweled Rice | NutrientsYouFools.com

Things I’ve learned from living in other people’s homes: people love their wine and their spaghetti sauce/noodles. Like, stock pile levels of love. I’ve also learned that most people have crappy spices. So crappy they should be embarrassed. I’m not super crazy about my spice collection, but I show spices the respect that they deserve. […]

Back when I wrote up my recipe for Peruvian Cilantro Chicken Soup, I mentioned how much I loved Peruvian food and I vowed to share more with you all. So before it gets to be summer, let’s make one last creamy soup. It’s full of everything in the world that is delicious. Cream, cheese, shellfish, […]

Caramelized Turnip and Bacon Fried Rice with Shrimp

Caramelized Turnip and Bacon Fried Rice with Shrimp

Of all the “safe starches”, white rice is my favorite. Sure, it’s not as noble as the potato or as complex as cassava, but, gosh darn it, I enjoy it. I’m a huge ethnic food fiend and guess what goes great with a ton of multicultural food… rice. And I’m not talking about cauli-rice. No, […]

Honeyed Rosewater Labneh with Cardamom and Crushed Pistachio

Honeyed Rosewater Labneh with Cardamom and Crushed Pistachio | Nutrients, You Fools!

I get sentimental about Valentine’s Day. It’s one of the only holidays I get excited about.  And when someone is as anti-everything as I am, it’s probably good to be sappy about something, even if it’s silly and corporate. That’s what I keep telling myself anyways. What I find strange is I dislike almost every aspect of public […]

Roasted Garlic Chicken Soup with Harissa

I rarely cook Arabic food. I grew up eating it, so my standards are high. I’m afraid that my flavor memory won’t match my cooking. Basically, have no faith in my ability to cook like my mom. And, to top it all off, my mother never gave me her recipes. So, I’ve spent a good chunk of my […]

I can pretty much do what I want.  So my dear controlling readers, it’s citrus season!  Ah citrus, those little bright beacons […]
