Pasta with Sun Gold Tomatoes

Matt and I didn’t get out act together in time to sign up for a CSA this summer. While there is certainly no shortage of great farmers markets in NYC, I’ve missed the weekly surprise veggies to plan our menu around. I think it’s actually easier for me to be surprised because I’m so indecisive [read more →]

Long time no talk! I guess I fell out of the blogging routine over the past few months… Life has been busy, but great. My nutrition program has been flying by and I’ll be applying to dietetic internships before I know it. While I think this blog will always be primarily a food and recipes [read more →]

Three Bean and Corn Chili

Happy new year! I’m back from my unintentional blog hiatus…and my new year’s resolution is to blog more regularly. I’ve missed it. I can’t believe what a whirlwind year of change 2013 was for me. In the very beginning of last year, Matt and I were living in Somerville and not quite sure what the [read more →]

It might seem like I eat such a variety of foods because of what I show here, but much of the time I’m not blogging, I’m eating pasta and red sauce. Its one of the few meals I literally never get bored with, which is great because I can make a big batch of tomato [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 →]

I don’t know about you, but my winter blues are in full effect. And that upcoming blizzard here in Boston? Ugh. (Also, since when did they start naming blizzards? Is it going to be that bad that it needs a name?) Anyways, I may not be able to change the weather, but I can certainly [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 →]

Vegetarian Hominy Chili

Sometimes, recipes don’t turn out as planned. I had grand plans last week to make posole using the bag of Rancho Gordo hominy that had been sitting in the pantry for far too long. After deciding on a recipe from 101 Cookbooks and starting to cook the hominy, I realized the ground chile I bought [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 →]

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 →]

Baked Eggs with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

Now that my marathon training is in full force, Saturday brunches after my long runs have become a regular thing. And I love it. There’s seriously nothing better than coming back from a 13 mile run to a delicious brunch and some mimosas on the deck. Matt and I have been making a list of [read more →]

Tomato Fideua

Fideua is a paella-like dish made with thin noodles called fideos. It used to be one of my dad’s specialities (and I think I always secretly like it more than paella). I’ve developed my own version over the years, which I’m not even sure I should call “fideua” anymore, as mine are usually vegetarian and [read more →]

Ricotta and Oven-Dried Tomato Crostini

Thanks to my mom’s new tomato garden, Matt and I have had more tomatoes sitting around our apartment than we know what to do with. I know, such a tough problem to have… Matt had the idea to keep our cherry tomatoes from going bad by oven-drying them. The idea is that you put the [read more →]

I have always loved a good panzanella salad, but it was one I had at Marlow & Sons in Brooklyn last summer that really blew me away. The crunchy bread and juicy tomatoes were topped with a perfectly runny poached egg. I know tomatoes aren’t quite in season yet, but I am getting impatient. I [read more →]

I was feeling a little under the weather earlier in the week, so I wanted to make a bowl of something comforting, but still somewhat nutritious, for dinner. This combination of tomato sauce, sausage, and cheese with pasta really hit the spot. I crumbled the goat cheese on top and it melted into the tomato [read more →]

Eggplant, Pepper, and Tomato Salad

I was looking for something light and refreshing to go alongside the tortilla and mushrooms I made on Sunday. The Eggplant, Artichoke, Pepper, and Tomato Salad that I found in my favorite Spanish cookbook, The Foods and Wines of Spain by Penelope Casas, seemed a perfect way to squeeze in some of the last summer [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 →]

Eggs In Purgatory

I’m not sure how the name Eggs in Purgatory came about, but it’s basically eggs baked in tomato sauce. It’s also my new favorite brunch dish. The dish is very basic and starts with a good tomato sauce. My go-to tomato sauce is the Rich Tomato Sauce from Marco Canora’s Salt to Taste. The recipe [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 →]
