While on a short trip visiting my Mr. Big in LA, one of the most intimate and memorable moments was cooking together. There is something very sexy about being in the kitchen and preparing soulful and sexy food. The smell of the spices, tasting the food as the cooking process progresses, and the intimacy of being in the kitchen together have a lot to be said. Lets say it brought me closer to BOILING point, and ready for another kind of intimacy in a room other than the kitchen!
So I would love to share this easy yummy recipe with you all. It is one of those dishes that looks like you have gone to an incredible effort but actually is really easy. It will administer all the comfort that is required on a beautiful fall day.
