About Tori Avey

Thanks for stopping by! I am fascinated by the story behind the food – why we eat what we eat, how the foods of different cultures have evolved, and how yesterday’s food can inspire us in the kitchen today. Read more...

    This looks good, but there is no way I’m going to try a recipe that requires me to print all of those pictures to get the directions. Please try to change your format for recipe printing.

      Lisa, there is currently a glitch happening with my print versions. My web guys will be fixing it in the next week or so, please check back in a bit and it should be fixed.

      Randy – there is a red “print recipe” button near the ingredients. Press it and you’ll end up with a printable version, no pictures.

    Tori, fabulous recipe. I will try this soon. Very creative. Thank you! I’ll be interested in reading your “tools of the trade” post, too.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was terrific! It would be great if you could include more vegetarian and vegan recipes on the blog!

    Tried this over the weekend……Yum! We have just recently discovered quinoa at our house and love it. This recipe was awesome and I am already thinking of the different veggies/spices I will use the next time I make it.
    So good!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! A new favorite in my home. Even my husband gave it a thumbs up. Thank you for this – I was looking for more ways to add quinoa to my (newly vegetarian) diet.

    This looks really great! I love it when you mix (South) American and European ingredients. As both a Latin American and a Jew I really, really appreciate this combination.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of doing a post on cookware? I would love to know what kinds of pots, pans and knives you use/think are the best. I recently got really good knives and I’m amazed at how more enjoyable cooking is with those!

      If I could make this for breakfast this morning, I would! Can’t wait to try it.

      I, too, would be interested in reading a post on cookware. Since I’m relatively new to cooking, I don’t have a lot of things in the kitchen. Since I have to spend money to stock a kitchen with equipment, it would be great to have some guidance in the process. Would rather buy something nice once than to buy things I don’t need/won’t use. Any consideration you could give to this would be greatly appreciated!

      One last thing – I LOVE the pictures throughout the recipes! Having those is a huge help – takes the guesswork out. No more “is this right?” moments. Keep up the great work! I’ll be back to this site regularly!
