While perusing Instagram for the 72nd straight minute the other day, I came across a post by The Kitchn illustrating what produce is in season right now. And out of the 8 items drawn, I’ve only eaten 4 of them! So this week, I started making my way down the list by trying what IContinue reading “The great garlic scape of 2021”
Last week, I signed up for Caroline Chambers’ What to Cook When You Don’t Feel Like Cooking newsletter. So naturally I looked nowhere else for this week’s dinners. It was a Caroline-filled week! The first two dinners were new recipes to me, but all the ingredients were old, familiar friends—a pickle-brined chicken sandwich and sesameContinue reading “Adding pork to the menu”
A couple weeks ago, in preparation for my forthcoming visit, a friend of mine texted me asking, “You eat Italian combo sandwiches?” to which I replied “Sure.” It was the perfect, innocent response that showed no signs of my intense hatred of pepperoni and other salamis and, instead, permitted me to still be the low-maintenanceContinue reading “Accepting that I might like salami”
Hello, friends! After a brief encounter with the fearsome pollen gods, I’m happy to be back to cooking and nose-breathing this week! And not a moment too soon because just before my untimely allergy demise, I had received not one but TWO new cookbooks to dive into! So it only seemed appropriate to make myContinue reading “Jambalaya, pants on fire!”
Each week, I browse my many recipe reservoirs for that week’s dinner inspiration—Pinterest, Half Baked Harvest, cookbooks, you get the idea. Knowing that I’d have a short work and cooking week (hi, vacation!), I panicked when I realized I didn’t have a plan for the blog. Luckily, NYT Cooking, easily my most “adventurous” recipe reservoir,Continue reading “Finding fennel’s flavor”
I once was at someone’s house when they were kind enough to grill some hamburgers, put out a bowl of chips, and make a quick salad for lunch. Lucky for me, this was just in the last couple years, so I actually liked burgers (curse me for not blogging about my first burger a coupleContinue reading “Conquering quinoa”
As I alluded to last week, this week brings my four-part “Dips and Spreads” series to a close. To recap, thus far, I tried tahini, labneh, and hummus, all with relative success! Given that I never used to think I’d like Mediterranean food (I used to hate feta and refused to try any dips forContinue reading “Tzatziki? More like tzatz-icky!”
It’s time for part 3 of my 4-week “dips” series! If you’re not caught up, I tried tahini in part 1 and labneh in part 2, both with relative success, which means the dips series lives on! For this week, hummus was a natural next dish to try. Several people had suggested it, particularly sinceContinue reading “The hummus that tried to kill me (maybe)”
After trying tahini last week, I decided I’ll do a little miniseries on different dips and spreads. (This obviously would not be the case if I didn’t like the tahini, but since it was successful, I had the courage to move forward with more dips). So this week I gave labneh a try. It’s basicallyContinue reading “Spreading the love with labneh”
