Caramelized onion and Brie tart

Note to self: This tart is just beautiful but I highly suggest adding a fresh arugula salad on top to cut down the richness of the all the cheeses and caramelized onions and pears. It would work wonderfully for an appetizer or you can even cut it into bite sized pieces and add a toothpick…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Gulab Jamuns

Note to self: Gulab Jamuns are basically the signature dessert of Pakistan. Its like a warm, sweet little ball of deep fried goodness and soaked in syrup. I guess the best way to explain it for those of you who’ve never had before it is that it’s like a cross between a dense warm donut…

Creamy Tomato Soup

Note to self: My inner Miami girl is coming out…It’s starting to become colder and colder up here in Georgia and I often find myself waking up with my teeth chattering. Growing up in Florida has spoiled me to summer and palm trees all year round. Not that I mind a reprieve from the heat…
