So, picture this – you’re moving to a totally different country to pursue a new job. Everything feels so incredibly different. Family and friends aside, what are the things you miss the most about your life at home right now? Is it your bed? Your […]

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 […]

Honeyed Burrata Toasts

Honeyed Burrata Toasts

Odd tidbit about me: when I was younger I really hated melted mozzarella cheese. You know, like the melted mozzarella cheese that is a key component of pizza? Didn’t like it. I would take the mozzarella cheese off of my pizza and eat saucy bread […]

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 […]

I no doubt get my best recipe inspirations from trips to farmers markets or early morning strolls in my garden. There’s something about finding an ingredient that’s fresh at its peak that makes me so excited to get cooking. With my garden still dormant for […]

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

It’s pretty easy to fall in love with fresh spring rolls, especially if you’re only used to eating deep fried spring rolls or egg rolls. Fresh spring rolls are made with rice paper that’s either fresh or moistened so that it’s pliable. It’s a little […]

Sunchoke and Radish Tartine

Sunchoke and Radish Tartine

So we’ve already pretty well established that I love cheese and bread. I’m really just always trying to find socially acceptable ways to eat more of both. And Tartines feel like a pretty good way to do that while still adding in some vegetables for […]

Chicken and Vegetable Hand Pies

Chicken and Vegetable Hand Pies

We’ve already talked about how much I love store bought puff pastry for its short cutting ways in the kitchen.  And I’d like you to know I feel very much the same way about store bought rotisserie chicken.  I’m unashamed to admit that I can’t […]

Baked Feta with Honey and Herbs

Baked Feta with Honey and Herbs

As far as entertaining goes, I’m going to contest there is literally nothing more crowd pleasing than melty cheese with some sort of dipping mechanism.  Tell me about your favorite appetizers – they almost all have melted cheese in them in some fashion. One of […]
