Caramel-Onion Chicken

I got this idea one night when I only had 30 min, and I’m passing it on to you. This one’s a little bit of alchemy– one of those times when I don’t even believe how much I can twist ordinary flavors. I used Ras el Hanout again,  but you can hit a lot of…

Bison Chili

I did a survey last week,  and got some good insight into you guys: most of you have been around for more than a year (aww), you actually try some of the things you see here (even though I want to boost that number) and you prefer poultry and seafood. Same! But,  I don’t want…

Chicken & Dumpling Soup

I looked up yesterday and realized that two months have passed. Stuff is starting to open back up (for better or worse) but just when I started thinking about going back outside, it started to rain again. Great. Well, instead, I’m making soup. Good soup. I’ve been doing my part to support local restaurants…but that…

Salmon Köfte Pita | Sweet Potato Fries

Is food nostalgia a thing? If not, I’m making it canon right here, right now. Everything going on has made it a bit less convenient (and fun) to cook at home, but don’t give up! Here, I’m taking on Middle Eastern style meatballs– but instead of beef and lamb, I’m using salmon. Then for bonus…

Lahmacun: Turkish Flatbread

What’s my favorite street food? DÖNER KEBAB! What’s my second favorite street food? LAHMACUN! Yeah, I definitely have a type… Lahmacun (pronounced: Lah-Mah-Joon) is an awesome Turkish flatbread. I’m not fully aware of it’s origin story, but it’s another quick bite that you can grab at most Turkish restaurants, and stalls–especially in big cities like New York,…

Chicken & Hominy Chowder

I’ve had a lot of time lately… almost too much. I’ve been able to catch up with the blog, and get a few weeks ahead– for the first time since maybe November! I’m doing my best to make this quarantine work for me but… is it over yet? This week, I’m taking on chowder– but…

Artichoke, Eggplant & Spinach Ravioli

It may have been 9:00 on a Sunday night, but Dani got the urge to make pasta and I couldn’t say no. Wait a second,  let me back up. We’ve had a pasta maker for two years– it’s an awesome wedding gift,  right? Well the box was missing two vital parts: the clamp that holds…

Chorizo Meatballs | Black Bean Purée

In today’s productive diversion from the state of the world, let’s talk about innovation. It took a while to find this old picture,  but aww look at my early thought process.  Chorizo-Stuffed Squid, Avocado Crema, and a Black Bean Cake. From what I remember,  the squid and cream were awesome– but the bean cake dried…

Chicken & Grits à la Carbonara

How are you guys doing? Really. Things have changed a lot in ten days here in Atlanta, but for some all of this has been going on for months. I hope everyone out there is healthy, and in a good mood– and I think I can help with that last part. The stores around here…

Savory Crepes | Arugula & Spinach Gremolata

I’m on a roll– this makes it three weeks on the fly with new food.  Ahhh, it’s good to be back. This week, I’m taking on breakfast– rather, brunch for dinner.  I’m making crepes from scratch, and filling them with mushrooms,  onions,  and bacon. There’s a lot to unpack here,  but it’s going to be…
