Turkey Pot Pie

The great thing about turkey pot pie is that it uses up so many Thanksgiving leftovers in one dish. But it’s also great if you’re not going to be making a big Thanksgiving meal and you want all the flavors without all the fuss. Serve this with some mashed sweet potatoes and a side of … Continue reading »

Favorite Fall Recipes

While we are in the midst of trying to sell the apartment, I’ve been falling back on old favorites. Last night, I made a version of this Puglian specialty, orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausageĀ and every time I make it, it brings me back to a night in southern Puglia. The meatiness of the sausage … Continue reading »

Squash Blossom Pesto Pizza

Pizza is always a great go-to when you have people over because you can let them choose their own toppings. Make a big batch of dough, preheat the pizza stone and put out your topping options. I like to roll the dough out on an upside down cookie sheet so that you can just ease … Continue reading »

Strawberry Tart

Fruit tarts are probably my favorite dessert ever. I remember birthdays when I wanted a fruit tart instead of cake. This one has a flaky crust and pastry cream that isn’t too heavy. Plus, I found some delicious strawberries at the farmers market. I thought about just strewing them on top stems and all because … Continue reading »

Pizza with Pesto, Arugula, and Prosciutto

I love most kinds of pizza, but my favorite will always be the NY slice. I’m particular about the slice too– I prefer a slice with a crispy crust, flavorful sauce, and not an excessive amount of cheese. The crispy crust is key, and I usually prefer when I get the reheat– they put the … Continue reading »

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are a favorite around the apartment, and I think this may be the winning recipe. I was planning on giving the whole batch to Gareth to take on his trip this week, and I somehow kept to the plan. But I think I’m going to have to make them again soon, because … Continue reading »

Leek and Mushroom Quiche

I always forget how much I actually like quiche until I have some leftover pie dough and make one. It’s a perfect lunch with some salad on the side and so easy to make. Plus, you can use up any leftovers in the fridge. Just substitute or add to the ingredients below, and you can … Continue reading »

Focaccia with Grapes and Rosemary

This is similar to the nectarine and cherry tomato flatbread I made a couple weeks ago, although this time the recipe for pizza dough (or focaccia dough) worked out much better. This recipe is based on a traditional harvest-time recipe, although the original is probably made with wine-making grapes. The closest we can find here … Continue reading »

Peach Raspberry Crostata

I’m usually disappointed by NJ peaches, but the last two weeks we’ve gotten some really good batches. I’ve been watching last week’s ripen on the counter all week, and finally got around to making both a crostata and a crisp with some fresh raspberries thrown in. This crostata was so good, I was snacking on … Continue reading »

Quick and Delicious Berry Pie

I had a craving for berry pie this weekend, but I was too busy to make a traditional one from scratch. So I adapted a couple different recipes and came up with this one. It was absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to make it again next week. Although I may actually make it with … Continue reading »
