about me

My name is Ellen. I live in Chicago.

I’ll try any kind of food once. I’m a fan of handmade consumables, however I still like Fritos and Dr. Pepper.

I’ve recently renewed my commitment to a gluten-free diet, and am having a great time relearning how to cook without gluten.

  1. Ellen,

    I love you and I love your blog- keep the recipes coming, I always enjoy reading about your culinary adventures, cause it reads just how you talk, and I imagine your voice in my head. You are the best, I cannot wait till you open your own eatery- it will be tops just like you.

  2. Ellen,
    Love that you like to cook – the recipes that you mentioned sound great and make me want to bite into them literally!

    A note – since you are a rice eater and not averse to some Indian food – try some Devon street fair. You might make friends with the cooks around there and they will introduce to the ways of the Indian Restaurant cooking. Replace a lot of grease, fried onions and heavy tomato base that they use and you get simple Indian home fares. Easy way to learn Indian food prep. Also, like you said Garam Masala is better in Devon Street stores not McCormicks.

    If you need to exchange notes for simple Indian home (mom’s) cooking, you can always reach me.

    Happy cooking and keep the fusion coming. If you can think of other Mexican/Indian dishes that lend themselves to fusing, let me know. I am thinking they will be a hit with my fellow Indians/Latino’s in the Virginia market. By the way, did I mention I currently reside in Richmond, VA but am getting ready to move to Chicago or Mumbai (Will make choice in next week).


  3. I found your blog tag surfing. I like it. I am relatively new to the blogging world, but love to cook (I made Shrimp Tacos for lunch) and I like Chicago. If you don’t mind, I am going to add you to my blogroll.
