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 […]

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 […]

Roasted Beet Salad with Walnut & Feta Gremolata

Beets tend to be somewhat polarizing as far as vegetables go – kind of like cabbage or brussels sprouts – you either love ’em or you hate ’em. (Also realizing I’m posting about two controversial vegetables twice in a row – oops!). But beets really […]

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 […]
