Thai Red Curry Chicken Soup

After the hurricane when we came down with colds, I had an impulse to make chicken soup. But being congested, I really wanted something I could taste. I always love Asian soups, and a little spice sounded like a great idea. And it was. But next time, I won’t wait to be sick to make … Continue reading »

Watermelon Gazpacho and Grilled Shrimp

In the summer, we all switch over to cold soups, which I don’t really enjoy all that much. I’m not a big fan of raw onion or raw garlic, so gazpacho has never been a favorite…until now. A little bit of heat with the juicy tomatoes and the refreshing watermelon makes a delicious summer soup … Continue reading »

Ginger Glazed Salmon

I think this may be my favorite salmon recipe. It’s certainly one of the most memorable ones, and I’m already craving it again. The ginger and sweet glaze is such a perfect complement to the salmon, and it’s surprisingly easy. Roasting it at a low temperature keeps the fat from rendering out of the fish, … Continue reading »

Fiesta Fish Tacos

Mexican food always means a party. There’s a time and place for (Italian) comfort food when I’m looking for a pick-me-up, and then there’s time for fish tacos and margaritas. I love these because they’re not so heavy, and I can make them quickly and concentrate on spending time with friends. Plus, when margaritas are … 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 »

Avocado Pesto

I won a box of avocados from Serious Eats a couple weeks ago, and I’ve been working on some recipes with them. This avocado pesto worked well with this whole wheat fresh pasta, and also as a topping for some deliciously sweet scallops from the farmers market. The avocado gives it a creaminess and richness … Continue reading »

Salmon Ceviche

A couple months ago I made a really delicious scallop crudo and I was craving something similar. But I had just had scallops the day before, so I decided to get some really beautiful salmon and use that. While the citrus juice “cooks” the fish, it doesn’t actually cook it so make sure you have really … Continue reading »

Peach and Nectarine Sherbet

  I got tons of stone fruit at the farmers market this week, and I made the plum tart earlier. Then I decided on some sherbet with the peaches and nectarines that were already ripe. Sherbet is generally sorbet with some milk in it to give it a little more substance. This ends up basically … Continue reading »

Edamame, Mushroom, and Tomato Salad

This was part of a very healthy Saturday lunch, and it was quite filling due to the edamame. The combination of colors was really quite pretty, and the broth was really tasty. It was another recipe designed to use up some leftovers in the fridge, and it worked well. Edamame, Mushroom, and Tomato Salad 1 … Continue reading »

Chili Rubbed Shrimp and Grilled Corn with Manchego and Lime

I don’t make spicy food that often, but I was craving some spicy grilled shrimp the other night. I had also picked up some fresh corn from the farmers market, but I didn’t want to do boring old corn on the cob. I usually do an Italian spin on corn salad or even a cheesy version, … Continue reading »
