Kitchenarian Cardamom Rice

I have been on a journey; a journey to find the rare cardamom pod. It is a spice so rare that I had to search the city high and low and make many calls before I found it. My journey took me to Whole Foods. It is a store I love, but don’t visit too […]

Kitchenarian Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites

Everything doesn’t always run smoothly in my kitchen. In fact, some days things can get quite frantic.

Kitchenarian Bacon Asparagus Salad

When I go to a restaurant for lunch or dinner, I am always drawn to the salads. Not necessarily because I think they are the healthier choice, but because they are usually a wonderful combination of flavors and textures topped with an incredible freshly made dressing that I don’t often create at home.
