Potatoes

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 →]

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 →]

Up until last weekend, the only time I had ever tried olive oil poached salmon was several years ago (2008?) at a restaurant in Philadelphia. The preparation shocked me…in a good way: it looked raw, but was warm and buttery in texture. It was incredible. I don’t know how I kept in my memory so [read more →]

Easter was quite a blog-worthy weekend. I have so much to catch up on! (Hence the long post title.) On the Saturday night before Easter, my friend Katie and I went to my mom’s house to cook dinner. Katie and I have been friends since freshman year in college and she just moved to Boston [read more →]

I’ve been itching to try my new sous vide machine with fish. Worried that a delicate white fish might fall apart too much, I went with some salmon fillets for the first attempt. They came out beautifully, and the cooking process is foolproof! I just love creamy sides with my salmon, so I made some [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 →]

Spanish Tortilla

Where do I even begin with tortilla? It’s something that I grew up with and first learned to make from my dad years and years ago. It’s amazing to me that a combination of such humble ingredients – potato, onion, egg, and olive oil – can taste so spectacular. Everyone who makes Spanish tortilla probably [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 →]

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 →]
