Crosnes

I stumbled across these funny little tubers called Crosnes at the Union Square Greenmarket last weekend. I grabbed a handful before even looking at the price ($20/lb – yikes!). I did a little bit of internet research and found out that they are a member of the mint family. They can be sautéed, fried, pickled, [read more →]

I realize that this is yet another post about a tomato recipe, but Matt had a huge bag of them in his apartment that needed to be used last weekend. His fault! I also wanted to use the Zingerman’s Marash pepper flakes he got me from his trip home to Ann Arbor the prevous weekend: [read more →]

Gazpacho with Smoked Paprika Croutons

I‘ve been making a lot of gazpacho this summer to make the most out of tomato season. In the past, I’ve made it the very traditional way with stale bread to thicken the soup, but we had a huge heirloom tomato from my neighbor’s garden last week that was so good that I just pureed [read more →]

Gnocchi (and Football)

Matt was psyched for the first Patriots game of the season last Sunday and we had been talking about making homemade gnocchi for awhile, so we combined the two and made a day out of it. We slow-roasted some amazing tomatoes from my neighbor’s garden and pureed it into a sauce to go with the [read more →]

Smokey Spanish Potato and Egg Sandwich

I’ve decided to try out my luck again in another recipe contest – Mezzetta’s Make That Sandwich. I don’t want to get my hopes up because the huge cash prize has probably drawn tons of people, but I thought I’d share my recipe anyways. I think it’s pretty darn good! Smokey Spanish Potato and Egg [read more →]

Pimientos de Padrón

Pimientos de Padrón are something my mom always talks about from when she lived in Spain. The great thing about these little green peppers is that some are sweet, and some are spicy. Really spicy. There is really no way of knowing until you put one in your mouth. It’s like Russian Roulette! I was [read more →]

My family and I usually feel like different flavors the night after Thanksgiving (too soon for straight-up leftovers!). We started off thinking that we’d make my grandmother’s turkey croquettes with our Thanksgiving leftovers, and this turned into a little tapas night. We made some clams, spicy limas with chorizo, and patatas allioli to go with [read more →]

Pork Stir-Fry with Sugar Snap Peas

I had some leftover cooked pork tenderloin in the freezer from when I made the five spice pork a couple of months ago and thought it would make a wonderful stir-fry. I found a recipe for stir-fried pork tenderloin with sugar snap peas in one of my Food Network cookbooks, so I adapted it to [read more →]

Garlic Roasted Asparagus

Roasting is my favorite way to cook asparagus. I make a lot of variations of this by adding things like balsamic or parmesan cheese, but here is my simple recipe for garlic roasted asparagus. Asparagus Garlic, roughly chopped (I used 4 cloves for about 1 and a half bunches of asparagus, but I change the [read more →]

Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I’ve been seriously craving a pulled barbeque pork sandwich after seeing them all over the Food Network last week. I was bored on Saturday so I thought: why not try to make one? Since I don’t really have the time or equipment to barbeque a pork butt, I decided to make something similar with chicken [read more →]

Once again, I may have gotten overly ambitious when planning my dinners for this week. I was up late last night cooking, but it was totally worth it (and really, it was my fault for starting too late). I had a couple of frozen pork tenderloins in the freezer and I remembered a delicious recipe [read more →]

Sesame Noodles and Grilled Veggies

Barbeque season has officially begun and I couldn’t be happier about it. My friend Matty had a Memorial Day BBQ last weekend and it was the perfect opportunity to make some awesome bbq fare. My roommate Katie and I decided to make grilled balsamic vegetables and cold sesame noodles. Sesame Noodles This recipe is slightly [read more →]

Thai Red Curry: Lightened Up

I absolutely love Thai red curry and, for long time, I assumed that it was really complicated to make. When I lived in Philadelphia a few years ago, my friends and I finally asked the owner of our favorite Thai restaurant, Smile Café, how they make their curry. He told us that they basically mix [read more →]
