    The markets here have shifted from yellow and orange orbs of citrus to banks of green asparagus, baskets of artichokes, bouquets of green garlic, and tiny favas the size of my ring finger. There are massive tangles of purple lilac and eggs for sale in shades of cream, pale blue, and soft mocha. I've braised baby artichokes every night this week, and made this soup twice. Spring it is. Do you remember the simple carrot soup I highlighted back in January? This is the asparagus version. I trade in asparagus for the carrots, then tweak a bit depending on what I have in the kitchen. But, really,…

I know. I'm one of those. But only sometimes.)The Ingredients:serves 81 tablespoon…

    So many new places to eat are opening up these days.  Not just in my neighborhood (in which there are a lot of great new places to explore and turn into hangouts…yay!) but all over.  Our local dining scene has never been more vibrant.  It is truly a diners market where one has a dizzying array of choices.  There are those maverick independents whose delicious and creative offerings are the work of a brave soul armed with just his (or her!) passion and the desire to share it.  Then there is the multitude of seeds being sowed by big gutsy restaurant groups – whose…

    Big hugs. If you're up for a bit of a project, and you want to make something to lift the spirits, this is where you need to land. A few of you asked about these dumplings when I posted a snapshot of them to Instagram a couple of weeks back. They were a Friday night project after a busy week. Instead of going out, an evening of repetitive filling and folding sounded perfect. The filling was inspired strictly by the contents of the refrigerator, as a trip to the store would have defeated the entire purpose :) The filling: caramelized leeks, green curry paste, and cooked mung beans. Everything…

    The Fall 2015 Ten Speed Press catalog did the dive through my mail slot the other day, and it looks incredible. I feel so fortunate to be in such good company. This is the point for me in the book process where things start to get very real. Behind the scenes, we're still putting some of the final touches on pages, tweaking little details here and there, but the catalog announces what is not far over the horizon. I took a few snapshots of the Near & Far catalog pages so you can see how things are shaping up (I'll thread them in below), I'm also chipping away at a post related to the cookbook…
  • Diana Henry's Uzbeki Carrots

    11 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    This is the most interesting carrot recipe I've tried in a long time, and I'll start by attempting to explain why. In a single bite, you realize these carrots are drunk with a cooking liquid infused with fragrant spices like saffron, cumin, and cinnamon. They take on pops of sweetness because they are punctuated by dried fruit. Deep savory flavor balances out the sweetness and is developed through a lengthy simmer incorporating caramelized onions and tomatoes. You hit spots of fresh, green herbaceousness from mint, and chiles, and cilantro, and then crunch here and there from pistachios. I…

    There is a list of impressive cookbooks queuing up for release this spring. Thoughtful, beautiful titles filled with writing and recipes that make you excited to light up your kitchen. I've been cooking from a number of these books, and can't wait to single out a few favorites in the coming weeks. First up is A Modern Way to Eat by Anna Jones. The book is a 352-page stunner, and an example of a first book going very right. You have Anna, who has substantial professional experience as a London-based writer and stylist (you've likely encountered her work on the pages of Jamie magazine). And she…

Dosa is thinner and crepe-like--sometimes crisp and sometimes softer. Uttapam is a thick pancake, with toppings of vegetables added to the "pancake" when it is just ready to be flipped over.

    Oh, yes, there will be another version!  But I just couldn't wait to post about it.Suspiro de Limeña is a romantic name for a luscious dessert with a long history.  The name means "A Limenian Woman's Sigh".  It's a fabulous Moorish-based dessert that can be traced back to the early 1800's in Peru. (Most rich and sweet Spanish desserts have Moorish origins.) Evidently is was created by Amparo Ayarez for her poet husband, José Galvez.  Because the dessert is both intensely sweet and delicate at the same time, he named it in honor of his wife.  It is immensely…

    In 2010, I wrote a blog post about a new (to me) discovery-- drinking chocolate. "Technically speaking, hot cocoa and hot chocolate are two very different beverages. Hot cocoa comes from a powder, while hot chocolate is (once again, technically speaking) what many call "drinking chocolate" or "sipping chocolate" - it's made from chopped bits of chocolate or small chocolate pellets that are melted (slowly and painstakingly) and then blended with milk, cream and/or  water. True hot chocolate tends to be much denser and richer than its powdery relative.  Interestingly enough, some…

"Mardo Gras" means "Fat Tuesday", the day before Ash Wednesday, when Christian Lent begins.  It's referred to as "Fat Tuesday" because fat and eggs, etc. had to be used up before the Lenten fast. Cakes, rich breads and pastries, and pancakes were made in order to consume these foods and not let them go to waste, and also…

Where are the baked kidney beans, black-eyed peas and gigantes? Baking is a phenomenal way to cook dried beans and a great way to make something more complex of canned ones; when you start considering flavors, the sky, nay, the globe is the limit. I want these red beans slow-baked in a big casserole, scooped with tortilla chips. I want baked black beans heaped over tostones, braised white…

  • potatoes with soft eggs and bacon vinaigrette

    16 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    I was going to offer today a kind of loose apology. “Sorry, guys, for all of the potatoes and eggs and utter randomness of recipes this winter,” and then shamelessly go onto blame this approaching third-trimester (ack, too soon) situation with its still-unpredictable food cravings I’m in but then I realized: this is actually nothing new. There isn’t a recipe in the almost 9 years and 975-deep archives on this site that hasn’t been fueled wholly by hankerings, usually arbitrary ones. Some people have lesson plans and editorial calendars, I have whims. It’s…

  • How to Steam Hard Boiled Eggs

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:03 pm
    Pssst! You want to know the best way to make hard boiled eggs? Steam them! That’s right, forget about boiling the eggs, just steam them. Some of the air from the hot steam permeates the egg shell making the egg more easy to peel.  Continue reading "How to Steam Hard Boiled Eggs" »
  • Roast Leg of Lamb

    29 Mar 2015 | 11:23 am
    The most important thing to remember about cooking a lamb roast is to not over-cook it. Lamb has such wonderful flavor on its own, and is so naturally tender, that it is bound to turn out well, as long as it is still a little pink inside. Continue reading "Roast Leg of Lamb" »
  • Deviled Eggs

    24 Mar 2015 | 10:10 am
    Deviled eggs! Easter egg hunts and summer picnic potlucks. I have been known to devour a dozen of these in one sitting. Deviled eggs are easy to make and are always a hit at gatherings. To make them extra pretty, just pipe the egg yolk mayonnaise filling with a star-tipped piping bag (or cut off the corner of a plastic sandwich bag). Continue reading "Deviled Eggs" »

    10 Mar 2015 | 10:35 am
    Do you have a favorite meal for those need-something-quick-and-don’t-want-to-have-to-plan-or-work-too-hard days? I keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer just for those times when I’m too busy to plan, but want a quick and easy meal. I’ll put some frozen shrimp in a bowl of ice water, and if I’m serving them with pasta, by the time the pasta water has come to a boil the shrimp are defrosted enough to cook.

  • Cabbage and Kale Slaw with Caraway Ranch Dressing

    6 Mar 2015 | 3:39 pm
    Have you heard? Kale is “trendy” these days. In fact, it may be on the tail end of its hip popularity, I’m guessing the kewl kids have moved onto something else, like radicchio, ramps, or radish tops. “Hot” or not, kale is okay by me; we love our greens here. Kale and cabbage together are a classic combination, most notably found in Irish colcannon mashed potatoes. Continue reading "Cabbage and Kale Slaw with Caraway Ranch Dressing" »

  • Slow Cooker "Melt in Your Mouth" Pot Roast

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:38 pm
    There's nothing quite like sitting down to a hearty, slow cooked dinner at day's end. And, it's even better when that dinner is pot roast with all the trimmings. This recipe has proven to produce the best pot roast I've ever made. Every component is pure perfection. The meat is juicy and fall-apart tender. The vegetables are cooked just right and are full of flavor. The seasonings are simply spot on and the broth yields a fabulous gravy-like sauce that is divine when poured over everything prior to serving. -- posted by Chef #1800068351

  • Does Your Grilling Marinade Have These 3 Elements?

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:24 pm
    A grilling marinade is a very simple way to add flavor and moisture to grilled items. If you follow these basic rules, you’ll be able to create a long list of unique combinations of ingredients and invent your own grilling marinade. Any grilling marinade will be made of three basic ingredients; Oils, Acids, and Seasonings. These three categories are the beginning of a grilling recipe that you create. Oils will not penetrate meat, they’ll simply coat the surface. This is why I usually don’t include oil in my grilling marinades unless I choose a highly flavored oil like walnut…
  • Grilling Rub Adds Flavor for Even the Worst Cooks!

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:23 pm
    Creating your own grilling rub is a great way to add unique flavor to meals, regardless of the cooking method you choose, or your cooking skill level. Healthy cooking recipes call for less fats and salts. Many commercially available seasoning mixes for the grill contain a large proportion of salt. Salt is inexpensive and heavy. It’s easy for a manufacturer to weigh-down and thin-out a pre-made grill seasoning mix with salt. Why pay someone else to mix your spices for you? A few simple combinations of dry seasonings can have you creating your own grilling rub without the addition of salt…
  • Michael Pollan on Oprah: “Learn To Cook”

      Michael Pollan is the author of four best selling books that examine our culture of food in the United States. He's my hero. He's been able to identify the growing problems with our industrial food system, but more importantly, masterfully communicate these ideas to everyone that's not a food scientist. And he says "learn to cook and YOU hold the power over food". Michael Pollan was on Oprah in January of this year. I'm generally not able to watch Oprah during the day, but when I saw the author of "In Defense of Food", "Omnivores Dilema",…

  • Scotch Eggs – This is an Easter Egg You Want in Your Basket

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:27 pm
    I’ve gotten so many requests for Scotch eggs over the years, I figured with the Easter holiday coming up, the timing was right to post this fried miracle of culinary engineering. In my version, I keep the egg soft, so when you bite in, you get that amazing contrast in texture between the molten yolk and the crispy sausage shell. This is traditionally a picnic item, so the hard-boiled egg makes sense in that setting, but as far as serving it as a snack, or for a first course, maybe with a salad, I highly recommend the softer approach.If you use the exact measurements below, the times given…

    If you saw the post from earlier today, you know this video has been delayed do to mysterious, and near catastrophic audio problems, but finally we have the first “demi” of the recipe, and I hope it was worth the wait. This is my technique for veal demi-glace, and there’s not much to it. I’m going for a pure veal stock reduction, fortified with nothing more than mirepoix and tomato. I don’t do the classic roux-based “espagnole” sauce, which is traditionally mixed with veal stock and reduced by half. Modern versions like this forgo the flour, and simply reduce the stock until the…

Plus, I really wanted to show some more gelatinized sauce slapping. People really seem to enjoy that, maybe a little too much. Once you go through all the trouble of making homemade demi-glace, you’ll want to make sure you portion and store it properly, so that it provides you with many months of stellar sauces. As seen in the video, you should get 16 nice blocks, each enough for about two servings, depending…

    Wild salmon, quinoa, and kale – these burgers are not only super healthy, loaded with good-for-you omegas and tons of protein (21-1/2 grams of protein) they also taste delicious and are easy to make.

    Mushrooms marinated overnight with lemon juice, cilantro, red onion and bell pepper. I couldn't decide if I wanted to call this poor man's ceviche or vegetarian ceviche, but what I did want to make clear is that the flavors in these marinated mushrooms are what you would expect to taste when enjoying ceviche, only without the seafood.This makes a great appetizer, and the flavor gets better with time. My husband, who's not a mushroom fan loved this! You can make this up to a few days ahead, if desired, it would last a week if not longer. Click Here To See The Full Recipe...

No coring, and the seeds just pop out. II used the thicker blade on my Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicerto make my apple zoodles, which are not just for zucchini!I just remove the stems and place the thicker end in the little spokes for a better grip.  Then spiralize and quickly…

Cottage cheese are sliced into thin triangles which are stuffed with a paste of nuts, coated with chickpea flour marinate, deep fried and then dunked into rich creamy gravy to make a delicious Paneer Pasanda. The preferred gravy for Paneer Pasanda is deep red in colour, which comes from ground tomatoes, deep fried onions and turmeric powder.

Earl Grey Raspberry Milkshakes are my latest guilt-free dessert obsession – they’re sweet, creamy, and can be whipped up at a moment’s notice.

Since we were there around lunchtime, we bought some food to go along with our beer. I don’t remember everything we had, but the Reuben chowder really stands out in my mind. I remember thinking it sounded kind of weird – and I wasn’t convinced that sauerkraut in soup could possibly be good ­– but it was freezing out and the soup was cheap so I gave it a shot. After one spoonful, I was sold.

    Years ago, when vegetables and fruits were only available in certain seasons, leeks were one of the few that survived winter and lasted until the first new spring vegetables were available. Maybe for that reason I still like most to cook and eat leeks from late fall to early spring. So the other day, which was still very cold and windy, I made a leek dish for dinner. I wanted to try a simple Italian dish of leeks baked in cream. But when I was about to put a dish in the oven, I found in my refrigerator a piece of Gorgonzola cheese. I thought that Gorgonzola would go well with leeks in cream…

So when I spotted treviso I have been buying it every couple of days and making all the dishes I have always wanted to try with a true cooking radicchio. And today's recipe is a combination of two dishes that I ate. In a magazine that I brought last time from Italy I found a recipe for…

I decided to make it over the weekend when my son had his friends over, so the dessert did not last for too…

    Today a very light and easy salad. I used to buy Napa (also called Chinese) cabbage very often and made many salads with it.

They enthusiastically approved this recipe for sharing. Yesterday, I served it again and a young friend asked me for the recipe. This salad has some exotic flavors thanks to mango and jicama. Both are those days widely available in all grocery stores. Jicama, which has a…

    This cake is a prefect dessert for today's weather as it tastes best when it is warm. And it is also very easy to make. It is neither a typical tart Tatin nor a true upside down cake. It is rather a combination of both. The crust of this cake is soft like in upside down cakes but it is much thinner, more like in tart Tatin, and a little bit similar to muffins in texture. My son, who is a lover of all simple apple cakes, praised it very much and had half of it before it cooled down. You can serve it with a dollop of crême fraîche, sour cream , or whipped cream, which will melt slightly on…

    Today, I’m going to show you how to cook rice like a chef. The process is simple really: cook rice like pasta. First, let’s talk about the more standard method for cooking rice.  You start by adding water and rinsed rice to a pot in a certain ratio depending on what type of rice you are cooking.  Sometimes you add salt and fat to flavor the rice as it cooks.  The water comes up to a boil, you clamp a lid on, and then cook for a specified time period.  The rice soaks up all the water, and you finish with a fork fluff.  Simple enough. Now, let’s go over the new process.

  • 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes!

    29 Mar 2015 | 4:46 pm
    These are the easiest protein pancakes that I have ever made. They do get a little crumbly because they are only 3 ingredients. But, the taste is still great, and they are very filling due to the high protein and fiber content. I will also give you options of other ingredients you can add to enhance the texture and flavor. 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes Makes 1 serving of 4 medium pancakes 1.5 scoops of a good quality grass-fed whey protein (sweetened with stevia is preferable) about 1/4 cup coconut flour about 2 Tbsp. brown rice flour Other ingredients you could add if you have on hand: 1/2…
  • Healthy Snack Idea: Roasted Chickpeas

    15 Mar 2015 | 7:17 am
    Sometimes get tired of the usual snacks: veggies, hummus, fresh fruits, bars, seeds, and nuts. And that is when I whip up some roasted chickpeas! I had been buying the pre-packacked Good Bean snacks from Target, Whole Foods, or HomeGoods. I love them, but one pack is about $4. You can make them on your own for about $2 (plus the cost of energy to cook them) and you can make double or triple the amount. I will say that The Good Beans snacks come out much dryer and crispier than the ones you make at home (unless you have a good quality dehydrator–you could get closer). Roasted Chickpeas…
  • Loaded Baked Cauliflower

    20 Jan 2015 | 12:03 pm
    Instead of a loaded baked potato, how about loaded baked mashed cauliflower? Sounds like a delicious idea to me. It is grain free, gluten free, soy free. It is not dairy free, although you could use a vegan cheese or skip the dairy altogether and use more garlic and olive oil. This isn’t the prettiest picture, but I was too excited to eat it that I couldn’t wait to fancy up my picture! Haha. I would recommend making either one large casserole of this in a 9×13 pan or using individual ramekin baking dishes to make everyone their own loaded faux-potato side dish. That makes for…

  • Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

    5 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    I have seen this cauliflower “fried rice” idea on Pinterest, and have been wanting to try it out to see if it is as good as it looks. It turned out really well! And it was easier to make (and took less time) than I thought. This recipe works well on my grain free diet that I am doing right now. And is gluten free as long as you use gluten free soy sauce. Cauliflower “Fried Rice” Ingredients: 1 lb. chicken breast or tenderloins diced and marinated ahead of time in San-J cooking sauce (gluten free, GMO free) 1-2 Tbsp. gluten free tamari soy sauce (I use the San-J brand)…

These crunchy and delicious superfood snacks are available in two flavors – Cashew and Almond. They feel like a cross between a crunchy granola bar and a nut-cluster.

  • Simple Slow-Cooker Yellow Dal

    12 Mar 2015 | 9:19 pm
    “Dal” is an absolute staple in our house. It is pure and simple, Indian comfort food. Essentially, it is spiced lentil stew. Rich, warm spices like turmeric, cumin, and coriander fill my kitchen when I’m cooking dal. And the husband always loves it. Layla does too! She eats it up with no problems at all. You can make dal with just about any type of lentil. I like using yellow split peas – or “chana dal” because of their flavor and texture. But I’ve made dal with red lentils, small black lentils, even black eyed peas! You can use the same spice combo…
  • Spicy Bean and Quinoa Salad with “Mole” Vinaigrette

This is a protein packed dish with bright Mexican inspired flavors: quinoa, pumpkin seeds, jalapeno pepper, black beans, and mixed greens tossed with a spicy mole vinaigrette. It’s healthy, filling, and has fresh clean flavors. I had tons of leftovers, so I actually ended up throwing this into a whole wheat wrap the next day with some guacamole and enjoying it for lunch – it was great! The husband is…
  • Sweet Sesame Noodles with Tofu and Broccoli

    Noodles just got a makeover! Crispy tofu, buckwheat soba noodles, scallions, sesame seeds, and broccoli tossed in a spicy peanut sauce makes this dish super tasty but also very light. Peanut noodles, or most Asian noodle dishes, aren’t usually the healthiest (tons of fat and refined carbs from the peanuts, sauce, and noodles), so I had to make a few modifications to keep all of the flavor of the original recipe but make it much more guilt-free. I was inspired by this recipe from CookingLight, but obviously changed out the chicken for tofu to make it lighter and veggie friendly.

I knew it existed for a bit but unfortunately didn’t see it available in my local markets until now.  The possibilities for other convenient recipes suddenly are not possible for other casseroles and sauces. Thanks to Pacific for making this gluten free cream of mushroom!  My wife loves it a lot! I used one of our favorite…

    Fajitas are a popular Tex-Mex cuisine consisting of grilled meats and vegetables presented taco-style with corn or flour tortillas with pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole and lime wedges are often served on the side as condiments. The fajita traces its humble beginnings as far back as the late 1930’s in the South Texas ranch lands. It was then a common practice to give tougher cuts of meat to Hispanic ranch workers as partial compensation for their services. These less desirable meats were often marinated in spices and tenderizers, grilled over wood flames and then rolled between warm…

When I make these meatballs for parties, I usually serve them plain with different kinds of sauces on the side (sweet and sour sauce, marinara and BBQ sauce are favorites) so guests can help themselves to the flavor boosts they prefer. For super tender meatballs, I use equal parts of ground pork and ground beef to achieve a good ratio of fat. I grate my onions instead of chopping which gives the meatballs wonderful…

Every year, I look forward to Superbowl, not because I can tell a linebacker from a quarterback, but because I can’t get enough of the fabulous game day eats.

The cheesemaker, Soyoung Scanlan of Andante Dairy, hand-crafts Metronome cheese in a shape traditionally reserved only for goat cheeses, giving Metronome an air of mystery for anyone schooled in the art of traditional French cheesemaking.

I mean, you can only own so many baking books before you see the same brownie recipe pop up 15 or 20 or even 50 times. To say I have cookbook ennui would be an understatement.

I used different meat. So, I…

    They say, “Time and tide wait for no man” and boy is it true. So much has happened since our last post it is almost crazy to think how much time has went by. First and foremost, we’ve locked up all the main details of our wedding! Which took what seems like forever to get done. Now it’s just the little things, which as you know how ‘little things’ work, it’s going to be probably just as much stress as the other bigger things.  That’s life though, right?

    There has been a lot going on these past few weeks in our home. First off, the wedding planning is into the final stages. We’re finishing up the last minute details, and with only a few months away, I still need to book a DJ. Despite it being our wedding, Jane and I don’t really like the whole plan months and months in advance stuff. I think it’s because it’s not us. Sure we plan out stuff to an extent, but we’re more of a go with the flow type. We sway back and forth doing what we like or what we discover to be interesting. I think a part of us just wants to skip everything and go…

To discuss things, life, the future, etc., It has always been our thing. It’s become so ingrained in us, that if there is a big topic to discuss or contemplate, we’ll go on a walk. Should I take that new job? Let’s go on a walk. Should we up and move? Let’s go on a walk. Sometimes its for 20 minutes, other times it’s for a an hour or two. What’s funny is that I don’t really know how this came to be. I guess we just like to get some fresh air and the blood…

I went to the doctors and got some antibiotics, so I’m on my way to a speedy recovery. Thank God. What’s awful about cooking and being sick is that as soon as you start to feel bad, you’re done. You have to leave the kitchen. So when this happens, I’m left watching Jane do all the work. I do not like this. I love cooking and like moving around and doing stuff even more.

There are literally thousands of different kinds, styles, etc., Despite me being completely removed from the entire process, as I am not going to see her in the dress, the dress itself, or even pictures of said dress…

It has always been a tradition that those two dishes are on the Christmas and Easter menu. The ham starts off as a mega sandwich piled high; lettuce, tomatoes, mustard, cinnamon raisin bread. I love it. As the helpings go on, I lose the bread and just start snacking on the ham. On Christmas day, my parents and oldest brother come over for a nice dinner.

    It seems like everyone is on some form of diet nowadays. One of the popular ones is the Paleo Diet. The food is a protein heavy system with lots of grain free, gluten-free, dairy free meals. You’re going to be eating lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seafood and free-range quality meats. Sounds good to me. I’ve been looking for a change in how I eat. I want to eliminate all the processed foods and sugars. Since Paleo seems to be big, I thought I’d look into it.

  • Red Beans & Rice using Blue Runner Dried Premium Select Red Beans

    15 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    At one time, when you asked someone what type of red beans they were using in their scratch-made pot they would either tell you Camellia or Blue Runner. That was all you needed to know because you knew that Camellia signified dried red beans and Blue Runner was canned. That’s all going to change because Blue Runner now offers a dried “premium select” red bean. I was fortunate enough to get a few packs of Blue Runner‘s dried red beans to sample. That’s especially nice since they are only selling the dried beans locally to New Orleans as of right now. Let’s…

I usually try to make a different recipe so I have something new to post here on the website. Plus I like experimenting with different ingredients and red bean-techniques. But I do have my favorite recipes that I make often. There really isn’t a need to post the same recipe every time I cook it, right?

Ahhhhh… To celebrate, we’ve joined some of our favorite bloggers in a HUGE giveaway – $800 cash! Who couldn’t use that little pick-me-up to help celebrate spring! Here…
  • Lemon Poppy Seed Bread #BreadBakers

    10 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    When it comes to muffins, I’ll usually end up opting for another snack… unless they’re lemon poppyseed. Yum! I ate a lot of them in college because they were quick, cheap, and filling. Anything lemon poppyseed sounds yummy to me! Allison knows I love these lemony treats too. So when she told me the theme for this month’s Bread Bakers was Seeds, we both knew I’d be pintertesting this lemon poppy seed bread recipe we recently pinned. The recipe calls for a lemon glaze to be brushed over top of the loaf, with adds a little sweetness to it. It also gives it a…

You expect this kind of thing in Pennsylvania, where my mom and sister live, but not here! Though I can’t complain *too* much, since the rest of the winter was super mild. You know what they say about Virginia…if you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute. But please, Mother Nature….I can haz spring?

    31 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    Every Tuesday, Italian expat  Emiko Davies  is taking us on a grand tour of Italy, showing us how to make classic, fiercely regional dishes at home. Today: A simple, comforting Roman-style semolina gnocchi. Gnocchi come in all shapes, sizes, and ingredients, depending on where you go in Italy. Quite different from the traditional Northern potato gnocchi or their cousins, ricotta gnocchi, these "Roman-style" gnocchi are made from cooked semolina flour, cooled on a tray, and then cut out into rounds before being baked. It's a considerably easier preparation than making potato…

    Don't be fooled by its humble name, beans are some of the most satisfying meals to put together for a weeknight. They are easy, healthy and hearty enough for the most die hard carnivores to not miss meat. A fantastic source of protein, beans are a vegetarian staple and true comfort food.Though cans of beans are really easy to use, cooking beans from scratch is not nearly as labour intensive as commonly believed. I usually soak the beans overnight but there are many that skip this step, swearing by the flavor of un-soaked beans. This recipe is adapted from Nydia's Kichen, which…

    2 Mar 2015 | 1:07 am
    Sometimes, I am at a complete loss for words when I sit down to write a post. I really just want to say "This is good. Eat it!"Meatballs exist in every culture in some form or other and they are always some of the heartiest, most satisfying dishes. "Kofta" is essentially the Indian version of this well loved hearty dish. The word "kofta" isn't exclusive to India, it is used all over the Middle East and there are just as many varieties. In this recipe, I have used ground lamb. Ground beef can be used too. A while ago, I discovered that I could substitute wheat bran for breadcrumbs in…
  • Char Kway Teow

    23 Feb 2015 | 3:42 pm
    I have been really enjoying the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine lately. The flavors are intense but the cooking process is quick and not too complicated. "Char Kway Teow" is a Malaysian stir fry made with fresh flat rice noodles, very common on the streets of Penang . It can be described as Pad Thai's Malaysian cousin to the uninitiated (like me!). I recently ordered "Char Kway Teow" at a restaurant in Auckland called Mix Moon (very close to a certain infamous sculpture) . It was fantastic. Though traditionally it is cooked with shrimp, Chinese sausages, blood cockles and cooked in lard,…
  • Malaysian Sambal Eggplant

    16 Feb 2015 | 1:42 am
    I picked up some Chinese eggplants from the Asian grocery store with the very noble intention of including more vegetables in my diet. Eggplants are not my favorite vegetable, so you can appreciate just how noble an intention this was. The only way I enjoy eating them is in a baingan bharta - mashed and spiced beyond recognition. Sometimes when you are an adult you have to sneak veggies in your meals, even the ones you don't like. These long skinny eggplants though, are not ideal for bharta so I decided to try something new and exciting. Sambal Eggplant! The idea came to me in a flash - I am…
  • Pico de gallo

    10 Feb 2015 | 12:51 am
    Pico de gallo, or very simply "pico", is a fresh mild salsa that is a must have on taco nights. No chiles were harmed in the making of this salsa. It is mild enough for the meekest of Mexican food lovers.Pico takes me back to warm Florida summers. Scratch that. HOT Florida summers. Tomatoes are the real star of this show, so make sure the tomatoes are ripe, firm and fresh. In this recipe I have used lemons instead of limes, just because I had them on hand. If you have limes, use limes. If you have Key limes, use Key limes. And give Florida a kiss for me. Pico de galloIngredients6…

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    As a kid, my dad always made hot dogs for me cooked down with tomatoes and onions and garlic. When I first lived in New York City, I remember reaching straight for the red onion hot dog sauce on the hot dog carts because it tasted the most like home. Caribbean people have a gift for jazzing up “poor people’s food”, so it’s not surprising that almost every Caribbean country has a version of this dish. In Spanish-speaking countries, it’s usually called salchichas guisadas (pronounced sal-CHI-CHAHS gwee-SAH-dahs). They taste like next-level hot dogs. Just, the best. Caribbean Hot Dogs…
  • Cucumber Salad with Gin Dressing

    I generally think it is total bollocks when people describe tasting the various “notes” in wine and spirits. I never seem to pick up that “hint of burnt pineapple”, lol. Until I came across the most magnificent local gin, Hat Trick Extraordinarily Fine Botanical Gin made by High Wire Distillery here in Charleston, SC. It was a revelation to actually, really taste the bouquet of flavors. We went through the bottle much too quickly to save some for a recipe, but it did get me thinking about experimenting with bringing the cucumber flavor to the forefront and dialing back the gin in…

    16 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    Right before law school, my husband backpacked through Europe with some friends. One night in Florence, they had an amazing blueberry steak in a local restaurant called Acqua al 2. It was so good, he’s often said he would return to Florence just for that dish! And he’s not the only one. I went in search of the recipe and there were a bunch of people online looking for a copycat recipe. I found one page that purported to be the actual recipe from the restaurant, but it used ketchup, flour, mustard, vinegar, orange juice… it just sounded like it would taste like a blueberry barbecue sauce…
  • Doro Wat

    9 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    I first encountered Doro Wat when I saw it here: Nom Nom Paleo’s Doro Wat (Spicy Ethiopian Chicken Stew). I’ve been to plenty of Ethiopian restaurants, but I guess the menu description never caught my eye. It’s a blow-your-mind, spicy chicken dish with a rich gravy. I’m so glad that the first time I got to try this dish, it was at home. Oh how I despise having to eat family-style from one big platter at Ethiopian restaurants. I am way too greedy for that! Especially when it comes to this dish. Michelle uses pre-mixed Berbere seasoning, but I don’t have local access to that and find…

    We have all become very fussy when it comes to pizza, these days. Everyone seems to have a favourite pizza restaurant and the competition is fierce. But there is Pizza, and then there is PIZZA.  So this week, after hearing about ‘Perri Pizzeria e Cucina‘ in Northcote (Melbourne) from a few different people, I decided to go check it out. I took some harsh critics with me too – my 3 kids.  They are very lucky to have eaten some of Australia’s best pizza, from internationally awarded pizza chefs, so I was keen to see what they thought.

    One thing I really love about the De Bortoli family, is the beautiful way their family interact with each other. The fourth generation of De Bortoli’s are coming up through the ranks now, and they bring a fresh perspective to the winery. While we were in Griffith recently, I sat down with Emery, her daughter Leanne, (who heads up the winery at the Yarra Valley) and two of Emery’s grand-daughters – Anna and Sophie.  We had a chat about the ‘Deen’ range of wines, named after Emery’s late husband. Each bottle features a different picture of Deen in action, representing all…

    Picnics are one of my favourite things about summertime — both spur-of-the-moment sandwiches on the lawn, and well-planned out feasts. What’s not to love about sitting out in nature, enjoying some company and a plate full of delicious food? In an ideal world, we would all have servants to carry the silver and crystal along, as well as chairs and tables, tents, and a fancy multi-course meal – just like they did in the ‘olden days’. In reality, our family picnics are mostly of the last-minute variety that involve me grabbing a bread stick, and a roast chook and a roll of…

    I honestly do not know how I had never tried Baba Ganoush before. For as long as I can remember I’ve loved hummus, guacamole, and almost all of the variety of dips out there. Yet, somehow I seemed to have missed Baba Ganoush. Since my first taste of this rich, creamy dip I have been obsessed. I can’t and won’t stop eating it. I love aubergine, and the fluffy melt in the mouth texture it has when it’s been cooked right. So when it’s been baked into this dip, it is complete Aubergine perfection. Although it requires some time to make – as the Aubergine needs…

    Falafels are definitely one of my favourite foods. I adore chickpeas, and they somehow manage to sneak their way into so many of the dishes I make at home. They are such a versatile ingredient, and one of my favourite way to use them is to make them into falafels. I could easily snack on them all day, and they pair so well with other Moroccan dishes, like tagine, hummus, or my new absolute favourite – baba ganoush. Most falafels are fried heavily in oil, which gives them their crisp, darkened outer shell. However, I’m more of a fan of baking side dishes/snacks like this in the…

    It has been my dream to create a brownie recipe. For as long as I can remember, they’ve been my favourite chocolatey treat. I’ve tried numerous, countless attempts now to create my own brownie recipe, but somehow it’s still not quite there. However, amongst my attempts to create one, I’ve managed to create some great alternative recipes. Most of them have been more like fondant puddings or sponges, but delicious nonetheless. During my latest attempt to create a brownie recipe, I ended up making something worthy of becoming its own creation. After the success of…

    Over the past few weeks I’ve been going on walks through the hills where I live. I originally did it to just enjoy the countryside and get outside to clear my mind. However on each walk I began to notice all of the different streams and water openings around me. Along the paths and roads there are multiple pipes with pouring water, different gutters, natural streams and puddles. On each walk I began to notice the beauty of the flowing water and their crisp, clean reflections. So, as I proceeded walking I began to build a collection of photographs I would take on my iPhone to capture…

    I really do love curries. They’re just so simple to make, yet always manage to be packed with flavour. For me, taste is a huge priority when it comes to making food. As much as I love a healthy dish, it still has to taste nice for me to enjoy it. That’s why I love curry so much, you can easily pack them full of vegetables and then cover just them in a rich sauce to make a meal that’s delicious and nutritious. I made this dish with a tomato base, and then filled it with chickpeas, red pepper, onions and lots of spices. I used a huge red pepper, which was the equivalent of…

This chapter explains why protein is needed and how much protein children should eat. It gives you a guide to planning balanced meals containing the right amounts of protein.

Not too long ago I shared a recipe for sweet potato fries, and while I was making them, a brilliant idea popped into my head… “Cinnamon roll flavored sweet potato fries” Of course, whilst cutting the sweet potatoes I changed my mind and decided to make them bites.

Unfortunately, those potato based foods aren’t a group you can be serving to your family day after day.

    Outstanding! Before I go too far into this, I just need to say: omagursh these are awesome. Be warned though, they are pop-able and dangerous! When you combine the two delicious flavors of chocolate and orange... it's like tranquility for a food addict. Chocolate dipped orange cookies equal mmmmm and yes please. In addition to these amazing cookies, we had a really great week. The weather is perfect here in the Northwest. The sun is out, and it's the perfect temperature outside. It's not common for us to have so much sun and so little rain this time of year, so we are enjoying it as much as…

    Classic apple pie is sure to please. I have never met anyone who disliked apple pie, have you? Fruit, sugar and a perfect pastry recipe... how can you go wrong? Whenever I need to share bad news with Michael, I know that, if I set out a pie and a fork, everything will be fine. No pie and no fork, it's bound to be chaos. When I was growing up, my parents had a large yellow transparent apple tree in their backyard. It was pretty good size too. Every year it produced hundreds of apples. There were more apples than we could ever use, yet we still tried. Dad always made the pie dough, and my…

Call my love for it weird if you wish, I think you are missing out. These cookies though, are diary free. I didn't believe it at first, but it's true. They are delicious and kind to my belly. Imagine that! I know you will love banana walnut cookies as much as I do. This week we are celebrating my son's 14th birthday. Can you believe how the time buzzes by so quickly?

Two, Michael is a veteran so we can get low-cost insurance through USAA. They really do a great job providing top of the line insurance at really great prices for veterans. Now that we have insurance, Michael and I are catching up on our long-overdue dental work. Ohh man... and that's what brings me to Tillamook's Udderly Chocolate.

    St. Patrick's Day is here. I wanted Winnie to have a little something cute to wear. Green, of course, because then she can't get pinched! How did that start anyway? Who first decided that we can pinch someone if they don't wear green? Regardless, I made this crochet clover headband for Winnie to wear to our home-school group tomorrow. I don't think that she needs the anti-pinch protection of green because none of the kids would pinch her, but she will look cute in it anyway. I whipped this pattern together, using a smaller variation of the crochet flower pattern, with the addition of a stem.

    30 Mar 2015 | 5:19 am
    I’ve noticed a shift in my style lately. I’m turning more and more to classic, casual pieces even for occasions I’d normally dress up for. Cozy, neutral classics are my new uniform. I suppose if I had to read something into it, the change is for a couple of reasons. One, my work schedule has been particularly crazy. I’m working in the pediatric emergency department this month and our shifts begin and end at all sorts of odd hours. Switching from a 6pm to 3am shift to a 7am to 5pm shift makes the days and nights blur together. As if that isn’t enough, every…

    I have a secret. Twin Peaks isn’t the best place in San Francisco to see a great view of the city. Not even close. The real best place to catch the view is away from the tourists with their fancy cameras. Tucked away in the Southeast corner of the city. Off the beaten path. The views! I’m talking 360 panoramic views of the entire city. And both bridges! The streetlights dot the city like a parade of little fireflies. And it’s so quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The perfect place for a cheap date night, which is right up our alleyContinue reading: San…

People go out of the way to help each other, mentor beginning bloggers and pass on the tricks that they’ve learned along the way. I’ve never felt like blogging is a competition, or that I’m being judged for my blog not being good enough, or big enough. In all fairness, my harshest critic is probably myself!

    After 2 and a half years and nearly 550 blog posts, I decided to take a look back through my archives, and pick out 10 of my favorite posts. The fact that a blog is basically a public, sometimes silly way of documenting life is actually really cool. Years from now, when no one even reads blogs anymore, I’ll still have a record of my life, and it’ll be a fairly accurate look at how I actually was as a girl in my 20s, a new wife, a new business owner, etc. It’s also fun to look back at how my writing style and blog voice have changed over the years.

A cashier at a gas station asked me if I’m from southern India. One of my dad’s coworkers asked if my mom is from another country after seeing a picture of me on my dad’s desk. Friends have joked that my parents probably secretly adopted me from a random country my dad visited when he was in the Navy.

    I love sandwiches, ever since we’ve got a Subway near our home I have to keep myself from going there too often (once a month or so, is still quite ok, I guess..). Subway serves these delicious B.M.T sandwich, and I’ve always wondered if these sandwiches are healthy or not. I guess if you don’t eat them too often they don’t do any harm. Now, since today March 17 is ‘Submarine Day’ I thought that calls for a tasty kind of submarine instead, of the real sub..marine…ones.. so here’s a quick recipe! It wasn’t hard to pick a submarine sandwich,…

    Hummus is a popular food dip or spread from the Middle East and is believed to have originated in Lebanon or Egypt. Basically it’s a very tasty chickpea mash with herbs and spices added. We just love to snack away hummus on fluffy Turkish flatbread in the weekends, that’s why we make hummus ourselves. It’s really easy and you can customize it the way you like it! Homemade hummus is a great alternative to storebought hummus. I agree that the storebought stuff most of the times is really tasty, but why not make it yourself?

  • Low Calorie Spinach & Turkey Bacon Quiche

    28 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Easter is coming soon, which usually means a lot of food and a few desserts lurking on the table. So in preparation for all that carrot cake, I made a healthy, reduced calorie quiche for this week. If you are planning to eat an entire cake next weekend, and are looking for a super low-calorie quiche, you can always go completely crust-less. But I love crust and stubbornly refuse to part with it, so I’m keeping it balanced by cutting calories with the filling. (I guess that means only half a carrot cake for me). I stayed away from heavy cream, pork bacon, yolks and high calorie cheese, and…
  • Lemongrass Taco Pizza

    25 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    I am still obsessed with lemongrass. Up to now, it’s been mainly a fabulous marinade ingredient in my kitchen. Nothing wrong with that, except I just wasn’t in the mood for chicken last night. Tacos are a favorite go-to for last minute dinner plans, but I wasn’t feeling that either. Then my brain somehow pulled up a memory of a taco pizza I had as a kid, back in my Oregon hometown. (The photo below is a historical house, not the old pizza shop)! It was the 80’s, but I still remember it as one of the best pizzas ever. I did a mental happy dance at the notion of adding lemongrass. I…

    The other weekend I found these pretty blue stones at a bead shop in Harvard Square. Their itty bitty size made them perfect for earrings. You know how sometimes the plans in your head don’t work out as easily in real life? It happens. After about 3 failed design attempts, and several lost crystals, it turned out the problem was that I only have TWO hands. I managed to borrow a third, but if you can’t find a spare, then try one of those handy alligator clip devices. (Actually called  Helping Hand Magnifier.) Hands or alligators. This is a must. You can take my word for it that it’s…

    I can tell spring is close, even though I still see piles and piles of snow everywhere. Our 8+ feet is finally melting at last, and I can’t wait to put away my winter coat and forget what it looks like until next December. Nothing reminds me more of warm weather than pineapple. Every March about this time, I go to the grocery store and hope that bringing one home will trump whatever that silly gopher said back on February 2nd. And yes, so far it seems to be working! Last year I made Pineapple Lavender Syrup, but this time around, a tropical salsa sounded good. We had been planning on tacos…
  • Turkey & Swiss Chard Ravioli with Sage Cream Sauce

    14 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    I was planning on creating a chicken broth based cream sauce with lemon, wine and garlic. But it was not meant to be. Oblivious to the fact that I was using light cream, and not heavy, I made a big fat sauce-fail instead. It started out fine, until I poured in the cream and the whole thing turned into a pan of curdled-grossness. Lemon + light cream = YUCK. Austin had to come in and invent a whole new sauce while I finished constructing the little raviolis. Making ravioli takes a little more time than my usual dinner recipes, but I’m ok with that for a couple reasons. They are fabulous.

    Spice the Plate Spice the Plate - A food blog with authentic Chinese recipes, cooking tips and resources for food photography.

Today I am going to share a recipe about how to make a simple and tasty stir fry dish using this convinient ingredient. It only takes about 15 minutes to make this dish from scratch to finish.

    Spice the Plate Spice the Plate - A food blog with authentic Chinese recipes, cooking tips and resources for food photography. Sweet and Sour Chicken is one of the most popular Chinese dishes and also one of my personal favoriates. The recipe I am going to share today, is a simple version of how to make this dish. Instead of coating the chicken with batter, I marinated the chicken with egg white from one egg, 1 teaspoon of potato starch and 1 tablespoon of cooking wine for about 10 minutes. This could also help maintain the chciken’s tenderness.Continue reading: Sweet and Sour…

  • Portobello Mushroom Stuffed with Herbed Goat Cheese

    Portobello mushrooms aren’t a crowd pleaser by any means. In fact, many people can’t think about choosing that over steak (often the two choices at formal events). But for those of us who prefer portobellos over a piece of meat, it’s refreshing to find a recipe that truly plays to a portobello mushrooms strengths and brings out all the right flavors and textures. This recipe, which features several components that pair well together, is simple in execution, yet complex in flavor. Ingredients: > 2 tablespoons walnuts > 1/4 cup fresh parsley, leaves separated from stems…
  • Lentil and Cauliflower Soup with Gruyere Cheese

    I’ve always loved veggie-dominant soups, preferring minestrone to chicken noodle, even before I stopped eating meat. When I stumbled upon this recipe from Martha Stewart, I knew I had to try it because it combines the components that I love about lentil soup (minus the ham) with those from minestrone soup. The smoked gruyere cheese on top is the perfect finishing touch, especially as the cheese melts atop the cauliflower and other veggies. It reminds me a bit of French Onion soup, without being too dominant of a cheese layer. Enjoy! Ingredients: > 1 tablespoon olive oil > 1 onion,…
  • Zucchini Salad

    When summer decides to come in the middle of March, the last thing I want to be doing is slaving over a hot stove or oven. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor or variety just because you aren’t turning the temperature up to 350°. This raw zucchini is simple, healthy and delicious. The lemon flavor truly shines in this recipe, while the almonds provide a crunch and the feta a creaminess. Ingredients: > 6 medium-sized zucchini > juice and zest from 1 lemon > 1 tablespoon olive oil > 1 package alfalfa sprouts > 1/4 cup slivered almonds > 4 ounces…
  • Raw Fig Bars with Pecans

    I was never a fan of Fig Newtons growing up — I opted for Oreos or chocolate chip cookies. But as people say, your preferences, including your tastebuds, change every seven years. While I still love sinking my teeth into a rich piece of fudge, my sweet tooth often opts for fruit flavors instead. Last year, I followed a raw diet for three days, and after three days, I was ready to eat simple things like steamed vegetables and cooked quinoa. Nonetheless, I still like to experiment with raw recipes because eating foods in their raw form keeps all of nutrients intact and at their highest…
  • Vegetable Farro with Figs and Sunflower Seeds

    Every week I plan my meals for the next week or two, so I can do grocery shopping on the weekend and schedule the cooking throughout the week. Recently, I remembered my slow cooker, which hasn’t been used since last winter. The slow cooker can be a woman’s — or man’s — best friend. The only challenge is finding recipes that are healthy, and in my case, vegetarian. A majority of slow cooker recipes involve a large white rice, bean or meat component, which can be fine as long as you pair it with heavy dose of vegetables, but I wanted a recipe that was naturally good for…

    The Cheesecake Factory Chicken Piccata has to be one of my favorite ways to enjoy this classic dish.

  • Homemade French Onion Soup

    16 Mar 2015 | 8:04 pm
    Homemade French Onion Soup is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I don’t know why a soup that is so simple in the ingredients tastes wonderfully complex and rich. You can make this soup, it may take a little extra time, but once you make this, you will never buy this in a can any longer.Growing up for special occasions my family would go out to a nice steakhouse for a fancy dinner. Being a child of the 1980s this meant you could order French Onion Soup in a fancy restaurant. This was a soup my mother never made. So for me, it was a treat only available at a restaurant. When I grew…
