Have you ever bought “b-grade” tomatoes in bulk? Well, if you are planning on it, do it on a day that you will have time to do something with them SOON, don’t pick them up on the Wednesday of a ridiculously busy week and think that you can leave them “til you have time” because, […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

Do you like risi e bisi? I do. I won’t lie, when I say it, it sounds more like “reees-beeesy” I’ve had this dish about a million times in my life, but it has been a long, long time since I made it. This is the recipe from my mom’s book. Everybody Cooks Rice. Does […]

Empanadas and a few sides

Last year for my birthday I literally got everything I wanted. It was insane. Who knew if you put together a very specific list and sent it out into the wild world of the web, you could receive said items before, on, or just after your birthday! Where am I going with this, you might […]

When it’s time for dinner, sometimes you need to nosh on something while you think, cook, talk, answer the phone, press 3 to be taken off the call list, and do conversions from one recipe to…. normal numbers from the country of one’s birth… This calls for a little app, and a dinner that takes […]

salmon and two salads

In just a few words, I can show you how to bastardize a perfectly good recipe, by the legend, the lady herself. Julia Child. It’s vinaigrette. It’s super easy. But, in my world, it is even easier to walk by the aisle that holds vinegars and oils without noticing time and time again.. This means […]

auntie’s flat bread (pizza)

One thing that I am frequently surprised about: how much I enjoy eating a fresh tomato. This seems like no crazy ordeal, for sure. But had you met me over a decade ago and suggested I chop up a nice fresh tomato and toss a piece in my mouth, I would tell you that you must be […]

Tumala d’Andrea

I bought this Saveur cookbook over two years ago. This was the first thing that I saw that made me dog ear the page. A timbale, named for the drum, or tummala, tumala, it’s got a few names… An Italian casserole. It looked amazing, but way too overwhelming to take from the page to the kitchen table. […]

Quick Jambalaya

The title should probably read “how to cook dinner in under 30 minutes without going to the grocery store” because I flatly refused to waste precious sitting down time after work with the stress of the grocery store, plus, I couldn’t find my list, and I wasn’t interested in making an expensive mistake. I got out of […]

csa share : week 3

It’s a funny story, how I signed up for my CSA share this year. Well, at least my friend Steph who I’m sharing my share with this year thought it was funny. I went out for food and drinks (emphasis on the drinks, margaritas, to be exact) with my sisters and a friend. I had two (or […]

Enchilada, the WHOLE enchilada.

After my bean fiasco the other night when I made ribs and cornbread, I was left with so many beans it was disgusting. I decided to do a quick shopping trip at a store I don’t usually go to after work to grab up a few ingredients to male some enchiladas. I am a great […]
