Fava Bean and Ricotta Crostini

Matt and I found out today that we got student housing in NYC for the upcoming year! We’ll be in “family housing” (not dorms, don’t worry) in what they call a 2-room studio. I’m sure space will be tight, but that’s actually not too bad by New York City standards! We’re mostly happy that we [read more →]

Chicken with Honey and Beer Sauce

As you may have noticed, Culinary Colleen has undergone a little facelift. Huge thanks to Yellow & Savvy for my new design! So, this chicken.

Ok, so I know the picture isn’t great, and my first attempt at grilled pizza was far from perfect, but it was still pretty delicious. We just bought one of those little Weber charcoal kettle grills and I naively thought it would be as easy to use as a gas grill. Turns out I have [read more →]

Battle Burger: Colleen vs. Jarret

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to enter the annual Build a Better Burger contest that I always see on the Food Network. To be honest, I’ve never actually made a burger before, but I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to come up with some recipes! There’s no limit to the number [read more →]
