Baked Cod with Lemon Caper Cauliflower Sauce

Baked Cod with Lemon Caper Cauliflower Sauce

Of all the classic food combinations that exist in the world, I could make a strong case for lemon and capers being one of the greatest. Sharp, briny, salty, acidic – they breathe life and flavor into dishes. And when you add garlic in there? […]

Simple Roasted Baby Carrots

Simple Roasted Baby Carrots

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 […]

Root Vegetable Gratin

Root Vegetable Gratin

We can thank the French for a lot of wonderful culinary things – the baguette, steak frites, vin chaud, French onion soup, alllll the fromage, croissants, the list goes on and on. And somewhere up on that list is the gratin. Anything gratinée, or au gratin […]

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 […]

Roasted Beet Salad with Walnut & Feta Gremolata

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 […]

Kale & Persimmon Salad

Kale & Persimmon Salad

While I do adore the holidays and all the celebrations and delicious food that come with them, sometimes it all just leaves me craving some salad.  That’s how I feel after this past weekend, where we just celebrated Thanksgiving in the United States. I usually […]

Sweet Carrot Soufflé

Sweet Carrot Soufflé

Okay, before you skip over this post because soufflés sound hard or because carrot soufflé sounds weird let me tell you two things. One, this is not a real soufflé.  There’s no beating egg whites into oblivion and worrying about the rise and fall of your end […]

Persimmon and Camembert Galette

Persimmon and Camembert Galette

Note:  I originally published this Persimmon and Camembert Galette on May 7th 2018, but since it’s persimmon season now I’ve been busy recipe testing and have an updated version to share.  Hope you enjoy! I never have been much of a baker – I find that […]

Charred Eggplant & Farro Salad

Charred Eggplant & Farro Salad

I’m still very much on the Italian/Mediterranean cooking kick since I came back from my trip to Europe.  Every time I travel there I’m reminded of how much cooking Mediterranean food feels natural to me.  It’s very much how I choose to cook at home, […]

Roasted Squash Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

Roasted Squash Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

Tahini is a power ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisine, but still hasn’t completely made its way into the mainstream in the US.  You can find it in some specialty grocery stores and in the international section of regular grocery stores, and it should absolutely become […]

Tomato & Mozzarella Baked Gnocchi

Tomato & Mozzarella Baked Gnocchi

As if your social media feeds haven’t told you already, it’s officially fall!  For me that means cozier everything – cozier clothes, cozier weather, and definitely cozier meals. You already know from my last post that I have an affinity for gnocchi because of my […]
