Delicata Squash Ravioli

I love making homemade ravioli because the process is so relaxing. It’s also fun to do with other people, and if you’re just getting into cooking, it’s very gratifying to see the final product that YOU made. It’s a time commitment, but you can make any kind of ravioli you feel like. I once made … Continue reading »

My Favorite Breakfast: Avocado Toast

I found a recipe for avocado toast in a Bon Appetit cleanse a while ago, and it quickly became my favorite snack, breakfast, or lunch. I adjusted the recipe a little to balance the tartness of the lemon with some honey. Make sure to allow your avocados to ripen, they should be just a little … Continue reading »

BBQ Chicken and Homemade Barbeque Sauce

I found it surprisingly hard to take pictures of BBQ chicken. For some reason, chicken just doesn’t seem that photogenic. Plus, it took a lot of willpower to keep myself from eating it immediately. If you’ve never made your own BBQ sauce, you should try it next weekend. It’s so much better than bottled, and … Continue reading »

Quinoa with Snap Peas and Mint

I’m a big fan of quinoa because it reminds me of pasta but it’s actually a seed so it’s healthier. You can basically treat it as you would any small pasta and it works, although my favorites are either mushroom-based or citrus-based. When I saw these beautiful snap peas at the farmers market, it seemed … Continue reading »

Pear and Gorgonzola Crostata

Crostatas are great because you don’t have to worry about a pie shell. You bake them on a cookie sheet and they are wonderfully rustic and delicious. It’s still pretty chilly here, so the fall/winter desserts are still what I’m craving. I love pears with blue cheese, and when it’s still warm, this is a … 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 »

Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder and Pork Tacos

I’ve been thinking about slow roasting a pork shoulder for a while now. I’ve always thought it was some big endeavor with an expensive piece of meat, but it turns out I was totally wrong. The meat was very inexpensive and it couldn’t have been easier. A dry rub on the outside, and you put … Continue reading »

Salmon with Pepita and Kale Pesto

If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting as much this week, it’s because I’m trying out the Bon Appetit Food Lover’s Cleanse.┬áIt seemed like a good idea to try eating healthy for a couple weeks, as we tend to do this time of year. I’ve had a lot of oatmeal, muesli, and pumpkin … 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 »

Nectarine and Cherry Tomato Whole Wheat Flatbread

Sometimes things don’t go quite the way you expect in the kitchen. Part of cooking is rolling with whatever happens, it’s not a mistake unless you make it one. This dough didn’t turn out the way I expected because the yeast I used was not alive, however, it was still delicious so let’s just pretend … Continue reading »
