Spanish Clam and Chorizo Pasta

Spanish Clam and Chorizo Pasta

Pork and paprika are two heavy-hitting Spanish ingredients – when they’re together in a meal, I’m immediately transported back to Spain. This pasta with Spanish chorizo and lots of sweet paprika is no exception. It’s full of bright, Mediterranean flavors that are worthy of a […]

Herby Breakfast Crepes

Herby Breakfast Crepes

Entertaining friends for breakfast is always a tricky – it seems no matter what you choose to make, timing it just right so that everyone can eat together is always difficult. Things like pancakes or French toast have to be made one or two servings […]

Garlic Scape & Spring Onion Focaccia

Garlic Scape & Spring Onion Focaccia

So, if you have Netflix and are even remotely interested in eating or cooking food, I’m guessing you’re very familiar with the series Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. It’s the Netflix series that follows the same format as the cookbook from Samin Nosrat that focuses on […]

Prosciutto with Melon

Prosciutto with Melon

There are things in this food world that just go together. Bread and butter. Peanut butter and jelly. Tomato and basil. Nutella and banana. Cheese and wine. Milk and cookies. I could go on and on, but instead, I’ll leave you with one pairing that […]

Crema Catalana

Crema Catalana

I need to caveat something I’m about to say with a disclaimer. I LOVE crème brûlée. It is one of my favorite desserts, and I can’t resist ordering it whenever I see it on a dessert menu. It’s perfectly rich and light and not too […]

Garden Salad with Sesame Miso Vinaigrette

Garden Salad with Sesame Miso Vinaigrette

This is now my third spring with the garden at our house in Nashville, and I still maintain that this time of year is my favorite for the garden. It’s in late spring that the root vegetables and lettuces start becoming harvest ready, and the […]

Fresh Watermelon Spritzer

Fresh Watermelon Spritzer

Vietnam is 12 hours ahead of the US Central time zone (where Nashville falls), which means when we visited Vietnam last year, we really struggled with the jet lag. We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City late on a Sunday night and then boarded a […]

Potage Aux Légumes – French Vegetable Soup

Potage Aux Légumes – French Vegetable Soup

The beginning of spring is such an exciting time for produce – I love seeing new vegetables crop up at the farmers’ markets. Root vegetables, tubers, and salad greens usually lead the charge before the abundance of summer fruit and vegetables arrive. And there’s just […]

How To:  Make Homemade Labneh

How To: Make Homemade Labneh

Making cheese yourself sounds really hard, right? Sounds like it would be a lot of work, you’d need some fancy equipment or ingredients, and it probably wouldn’t be worth the effort, right? Wrong, my friends! Enter homemade labneh. I bet you have all the things […]

Spanish Orange & Olive Salad

Spanish Orange & Olive Salad

Spanish food doesn’t get all the same love that other Mediterranean food does. From my experience in the US at least, we idolize the Mediterranean cuisine of France and Italy, we exoticize Mediterranean food of Morocco and Greece, and we kind of forget about ALL […]

Lemongrass Beef Banh Mi

Lemongrass Beef Banh Mi

Pho and Banh Mi are likely the two dishes you think of when you think of Vietnamese food. Like Pad Thai in Thailand, ceviche in Peru, pasta in Italy – Banh Mi is just iconic for Western palates. Until we traveled to Vietnam last year, […]

Quick Pickled Asian Vegetables

Quick Pickled Asian Vegetables

I was perusing the Asian market up the street from our house earlier this week in search of dried shiitake mushrooms, mirin, and pickled ginger for my Milk Street Tuesday Night Recipe this week and was thinking about just how little we utilize pickled things […]
