My Dad’s Garlic Chicken

Garlic chicken was one of my dad’s specialties. It was originally based off a recipe in an old favorite Spanish cookbook, but has evolved over the years and now lives in my (and my mom’s) head. I’ve been so busy lately experimenting with new recipes that this old favorite somehow fell out of my repertoire. [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 →]

I started going to Dali Restaurant years ago with my parents when they first moved to the neighborhood. I always thought it was maybe a little overpriced, but consistently good.

This was the day we drove up to Haro in Rioja for our mini wine tour. We were SO looking forward to this part of the trip. The drive up took about four hours, and we saw a double rainbow along the way! My mom had been feeling sick all day, so Matt and I [read more →]

Lobster Fideua

(As you can probably tell, I’m a little behind on blogging on all of my cooking while I was in Boston because we kind of cooked non-stop, but here goes my last post from my trip.) My parents met in Spain and lived there for some time before I came along and, as a result, [read more →]

Santa Margherita Great Taste Challenge

I entered the Santa Margherita Great Taste Challenge on a whim last week with my Seared Scallops with Pappardelle and Saffron Sauce recipe that I posted back in March. The contest asked for a recipe that would pair well with one of their three wines: Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, and Chianti. I thought the richness of [read more →]
