Red Pepper

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 →]

Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese is a wonderful thing, so my mom and I both agreed it needed to be part of our Easter spread. The combination of cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and jarred pimentos might sound strange…until you try it. It’s dangerously addicting, especially on ritz crackers. Inspired by the pimento cheese I had in Chattanooga last year, [read more →]

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Matt and I are starting to realize why we got such a good deal on our Davis Square apartment. Being on the third floor of an old townhouse means that it’s unbearably hot in the summer, yet our apartment has basically no insulation to keep the heat in during the winter. I’m pretty sure when [read more →]

Almost everything that is tomato based is comfort food to me, and that’s exactly what I was craving last night. I was in luck because the folks at Tuttorosso tomatoes recently send me a gift basket of canned tomatoes to try out and review. Now that I’m unemployed and working with a much stricter food [read more →]

After a week of working from home – which included food at Dali, Journeyman, and of course our truffle feast (plus the two days of truffle dishes we had with the leftover truffle) – I was actually looking forward to some healthy eating this week. I came across these black bean and goat cheese quesadillas [read more →]

Three Bean Chili

What I love about making chili is that it’s so easy to improvise. It turns out differently every time, but only gets better and better. I used three types of beans for this version – black, pinto, and kidney. The base consisted of cooked down onions, red bell pepper, and poblano pepper. A few chipotle [read more →]

Grilled Scallions with Romesco Sauce

Spring onions with Romesco sauce is a popular Catalan combination. I couldn’t find spring onions at the store last weekend, so we did the same thing with scallions on the 4th of July. It turned out to be a great recipe for summer grilling. There are tons of recipes out there for Romesco. It’s typically [read more →]

Huevos Rancheros

Matt and I randomly had all of the makings of huevos rancheros sitting in the fridge last Sunday and – aside from getting some jalapeno in my eye* – it was one of the best impromptu brunches to ever happen! We bought this huge bag of masa flour to make tacos with homemade tortillas several [read more →]

I made my scallops and saffron sauce the other night to try out with the Santa Margherita Prosecco, so my mom and I came up with some easy appetizers to serve beforehand. I wanted to make some bruschetta with my mom’s garden tomatoes and basil. My parents had just been to a wedding where they [read more →]
