"The child of displaced Bostonians in the fertile heartland of America, my food tastes and interests have always been wide and varied. Growing up watching a myriad of cooking shows, and anxiously awaiting the delicious concoctions my family would create in the kitchen and on the grill, I have always had a love of good food and tasty meals. Some of my favorite ingredients to cook with are garam masala, kale, butternut squash and fresh garlic. I also make a mean mustard salad dressing and my refrigerator pickles have been described as "otherworldy."

I pride myself on being quite the adventurous eater. I have dined on venison with hunters, snacked on fried cricket, cooked soup with freegans and licked ants in the Australian rainforest. These days, I am living in Chicago, tending to an indoor herb garden and cooking up big batches of rice and beans, chili and curry. I have a deep passion for fresh food and good cooking, and I hope to share my love and expertise of tasty healthy cooking on!"

So I'm thrilled to share this fabulous recipe from Matthew with everyone, and you can find several more tasty recipes just like this at!
