Quinoa Pasta with Kale and Lemon

No, I’m not going gluten-free. I’m lucky that I don’t seem to have any issues with eating gluten, but I do eat an awful lot of pasta and am looking to branch out a little. I recently bought some quinoa pasta out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised with the taste and texture. The big [read more →]

Kale, Apple, and Ginger Smoothie

Today is the day – I finally start school! I’m weirdly nervous even though all I really have to do on the first day is show up. As much as I enjoyed my long break, I definitely thrive on routine so I’m happy to get started. Lately, I’ve been trying to make green smoothies part [read more →]

Our meals have been a little random lately. Instead of planning what will go with what, we often cook a bunch of simple sides and eat them all together. We’ve been making these crispy flattened potatoes at least once a week with all of the potatoes we’ve gotten from our farm share. The idea comes [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 →]

Before I get to this pasta, I have some news to share… Matt got into medical school! He’ll be starting at Cornell in the fall, which means we’re moving back to NYC in August. As much as I’ll miss Boston, I didn’t feel done with New York just yet. This news was so exciting on [read more →]

Variations of spinach with pine nuts and raisins can be found on most Spanish tapas menus these days. While it’s always a good combination, it never particularly excited me until I tried the version at Kika Tapas last summer. The key to their version? Just barely wilting the spinach and adding a squeeze of fresh [read more →]

I’m not a big salad eater. That said, I’ve had some root vegetable and hearty green based salads out recently that have started to change my mind. This shredded brussels sprout salad was born yesterday when I randomly found myself actually craving salad. I’m pretty it was my body’s way of trying to cancel out [read more →]

Mushroom Bolognese with Gremolata

While I’m usually a huge fan of cooking in for Valentine’s Day, Matt and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, Posto, last Friday for a belated Valentine’s meal. We’ve been making an effort to eat out less lately, so going out these year seemed more special. When we do go to Posto, we [read more →]

Sometimes the simplest foods are the best. Matt and I were blown away by the kale salad we tried at City House in Nashville, and our recreation of it has been in our repertoire ever since. The original salad of kale and thinly sliced radishes was dressed with lemon juice and olive oil, and topped [read more →]

I subscribe to a lot of food magazines. Last summer they really started to pile up, and I couldn’t bear to just throw them all away. So, I started clipping out recipes I wanted to try and consolidated them in a binder. Fast forward to today. I’ve only looked at this binder a handful of [read more →]

Arroz Con Leche Brulee

I don’t think I realized how delicious arroz con leche was until I was in Spain last month. We had SO MUCH of it there, and I didn’t come across a single version that I didn’t like. My favorite was definitely at El Ñeru, where they actually bruleed the top. Oddly enough, I actually own [read more →]

Ensalada Rusa

I usually dread office potlucks. However, my client in Miami had a thanksgiving potluck last week and I was actually intrigued. Most of the people at this office are from South or Central America, so they made things like rice and beans, plantains, and flan. It was – dare I say – tasty! My contribution [read more →]

Provençal White Bean Dip

I feel like I’ve kind of OD’d on hummus, so the Provençal White Bean Dip recipe on Serious Eats last week caught my eye. The addition of roasted garlic really takes this recipe to a whole new level. I also added a little bit of lemon juice to brighten the flavor a little bit. Aside [read more →]

Plum Cake Tatin

I noticed that my mom had bought some prune plums last week that were ready to be eaten. I’ve seen Ina Garten make this Plum Cake Tatin on her show Barefoot Contessa many times (you know how Food Network likes it’s reruns), so I thought it would be the perfect thing to bring when we [read more →]

Sole Meuniere

Having recently read Julia Child’s memoir and seen “Julie & Julia”, I have been wanting a good excuse to make Sole Meuniere. For those who haven’t seen the movie, Sole Meuniere was Julia’s first meal when she moved to France and what inspired her to learn French cooking. I thought it was the perfect meal [read more →]

I was contemplating breakfast on my walk home from the gym the other morning and started craving smoked salmon. I had to stick with my standard ham sandwich breakfast that morning (yeah, I eat lunch food for breakfast), but I went to the grocery store after work and crafted this smoked salmon and goat cheese [read more →]

I made a quick and easy dinner for myself tonight with some salmon and the fresh peas I got yesterday at Green City Market. I kept the peas simple by just steaming them and tossing them in a little bit of butter, but I made a nice horseradish and lemon cream to spruce up the [read more →]
