I got too busy with school this week to even write about what we got in our CSA, and that’s a shame because we got some great stuff. Fresh peas, broccoli, beets, swiss chard, kohlrabi, fennel, summer squash, garlic scapes, dill, and, thankfully, not too much lettuce. Somehow, we made it through almost all of [read more →]

Ever since we visited San Street, an Asian street food truck in Ann Arbor, MI, Matt and I have been wanting to recreate their spicy tofu buns. It was an actually very simple combination of fried tofu, scallions, and cucumber. The key was the sauce on the tofu, which was a Korean fermented chili paste [read more →]

Easy Stir-Fried Bok Choy

I had so many blog posts planned around our CSA veggies, but we’ve been getting so many that it’s hard to keep up! We got this bok choy in last week’s CSA and turned it into a simple stir fry. I used a method from Steamy Kitchen that involved adding a bit of garlic and [read more →]

I get giddy whenever I pick up our weekly CSA box. I’m sure the excitement will wear off after awhile (maybe). This week we got huge bags of braising mix and mesclun, along with red Russian kale, scallions, bok choy, head lettuce, fennel, cilantro and green garlic. Tonight’s CSA-inspired meal featured the scallions. Matt and [read more →]

Happy Father’s Day

Father’s day comes at an odd time this year, as yesterday was the third anniversary of my dad passing away. My mom and I spent the weekend honoring his memory…and food was a big part of it. Spanish food, specifically. My parents lived in Spain for many years before having me, so cooking Spanish food [read more →]

In a way, signing up for a CSA has simplified our dinner planning for the week. I’m making an effort to resist the urge to still buy a bunch of ingredients to cook with our CSA veggies. Instead, we’re trying to rely more on pantry items to go with our vegetables to make cheap, delicious, [read more →]

Matt and I signed up or our very first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this summer. It’s sort of a win-win because you’re supporting a farm, and you also get tons of delicious, organic vegetables to look forward to each week. And I love the surprise! We had been wanting to sign up for one for [read more →]

Kale and Pasta Frittata

I’ve talked about how much I love frittatas as a way to use leftovers. This recipe is great for not only using leftovers or spare vegetables, but also to clean out the pantry. Whenever I notice there are several partial bags of different types of pasta in our pantry, I make a pasta frittata. Having [read more →]

For me, it doesn’t get much better than a sweet potato hash for breakfast. I’ve been trying to make it something that’s quick and easy to throw together when I wake up because if something seems too complicated to make when I first roll out of bed, I just won’t do it. I’ll just make [read more →]

It might seem like I eat such a variety of foods because of what I show here, but much of the time I’m not blogging, I’m eating pasta and red sauce. Its one of the few meals I literally never get bored with, which is great because I can make a big batch of tomato [read more →]

Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. Mine was filled with lots of good eats… Matt and I started a sourdough starter recently and used it for the first time in a Sourdough Pizza. We used Serious Eats’ dough recipe and combined it with their vodka sauce pizza recipe. The sourdough flavor was [read more →]

Zingerman’s Tour de Food

Matt and I traveled to Ann Arbor, MI to visit his family last weekend, and while the family visit was the first priority, we had a pretty serious food itinerary as well. Zingerman’s is an Ann Arbor institution that Matt got me hooked on when I first visited his hometown a couple of years ago. [read more →]

Matcha, Mango, and Ginger Smoothie

The February issue of Bon Appetit this year featured several recipes using matcha. Matcha is essentially green tea powder, but it’s supposedly even healthier than brewed green tea because you consume the entire green tea leaf. I spotted it at my local Japanese market recently and didn’t think twice before putting it in my basket. [read more →]

My Favorite Spots in Somerville

Since I just moved, I thought it would be fun to put together some of my favorite spots in Somerville from my two years there. That’s not to say I won’t be going back to these places, ever – after all, Cambridge is just next door. I just know Matt and I definitely stuck to [read more →]

When Matt was in his post-bacc program last year, he would always make sure he was prepared enough for his exams to be able to relax the night before. This usually meant making a nice (and often elaborate) meal, and that was always perfectly alright with me. I only hope I can be so disciplined [read more →]

First of all, happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! As usual, our mother’s day celebration over the weekend revolved around lots of good eats. My mom had been sick all week, but luckily felt better and regained her appetite just in time for the weekend. She actually had a conference to go [read more →]

IPA Beer-Off

A few weeks ago, my friend Katie hosted a beer-off. This is seriously something we have talked about doing for years, and once we started living in the same city there was no excuse to put it off any longer. We wanted to essentially do a blind tasting of several beers, make tasting notes, and [read more →]

Egg and Asparagus Toasts

Phew. We are finally moved and (mostly) unpacked! I really should be more organized and used to moving at this point. I mean, since college I’ve moved from Philadelphia to Chicago to NYC to Boston. Here’s to hoping the next move (in, oh, 3 months) will be easier! It has been awesome to return to [read more →]

Things have been slowly getting back to normal around here…except that our upcoming move has totally crept up on us. We’re not moving to NYC until sometime in August, but we’re actually moving to East Cambridge for the summer to house sit for my mom’s friends. I swear, packing always takes longer than I think [read more →]

Boston Strong

I know I’ve been kind of absent lately. I didn’t really know what to say after the Boston Marathon bombings, and my regular posts seemed not so important anymore. I was lucky – I wasn’t there, and my mom was watching two miles away from the finish line and was evacuated right away before even [read more →]
