Broccoli Risotto

Risotto is kind of a go-to Friday night dinner for Matt and me. We always seem to have risotto rice, parmesan, and some kind of vegetable on hand. It’s the perfect cheap date-night dinner. Broccoli risotto was on the menu last Friday night. The result was like an adult version of cheesy broccoli and rice. [read more →]

Sweet and Sour Cabbage With Tofu

So, I’m trying something a little new with my blog and recipe formatting. I’m getting my blog redesigned this month (yay!) and realized I should probably figure out how I want to format my posts going forward. I’m experimenting with Ziplist for my recipe formatting. Anyone with a Ziplist account can save Ziplist-formatted recipes to [read more →]

I didn’t grow up in the south, but I did grow up eating my dad’s hoppin’ john every new years day. It’s supposed to bring you good luck for the year – and while I’m not necessarily superstitious, I’m not one to break with tradition, either. My dad’s version always involved some kind of smoky [read more →]

Fried Rice with Cauliflower

I recently read this blog post about using sauteed, grated cauliflower as a healthier alternative to rice or couscous. I was intrigued because I absolutely love cauliflower and had never thought of grating it. However, I also like carbs with my meals, so I tried the technique for the first time in fried rice using [read more →]

I get so many cooking ideas in my head, but never seem to have time to execute them. One of my goals while I’m taking a little time off and figuring out my life is to really experiment with new recipes instead of falling back on the same old standbys. I tried out this Glazed [read more →]

Rice Biryani

When I mentioned to Katie that I wanted to make Tandoori Chicken last weekend, she emailed her uncle P.K. (who happens to be from India) to see if he had any recipes to share. Having already tossed around the idea of a vegetarian rice biryani dish as a side, I was thrilled when he emailed [read more →]

Making a paella has turned into an Easter tradition in my family. I don’t know when or how it came about. All I know is I look forward to it every year. Our Easter Sunday this year included Katie and Matt (who had just taken an overnight bus back from New York…he’s a trouper). We [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 →]

Last night’s dinner turned out pretty amazing for a clean-out-the-fridge dinner. We used some leftover butternut squash and mushrooms to make a delicious risotto, helping get our growing rice collection a little more under control. I’ve been a huge fan of raw kale salads lately, like this one from 101 Cookbooks, so I tossed some [read more →]

I bought a Sous Vide machine! I had been itching to buy one for while, and when I suddenly got two catering gigs lined up I thought it would be the perfect time to go for it. It has been well worth it so far. I’ll have many more sous vide posts, but I’ll start [read more →]

Pre-Thanksgiving Feast

Since Matt and I won’t be together on Thanksgiving, we cooked our own Thanksgiving dinner at my mom’s house last weekend. Matt wanted to make some dishes off of Marco Canora’s Thanksgiving menu, and I of course wanted the requisite turkey, cranberry sauce, and brussels sprouts. I couldn’t find bone-in, skin-on turkey breast (too early [read more →]
