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 »

Lemon Tiramisu

I had a bunch of the Italian ladyfingers used for tiramisu, but no time or mascarpone to make the original. This is a pretty Americanized version, but I could just call it Lemon Pudding or Lemon Trifle and that would be fine too. No matter what you call it, it was a lovely end to … Continue reading »

Wild Mushroom Crostini

I love mushrooms. Except for shitakes and button mushrooms. More often than not, I pair them with marsala and thyme or rosemary. They just go so well together and give everything a nice meaty, earthy flavor. Occasionally I treat myself to some beautiful varieties at the farmers market, and this week I got some hen … Continue reading »

Mushroom Lasagna

I love making lasagna when I’m going to have people over because I can hang out with people instead of standing over the stove the whole night. It’s also just great comfort food, and it makes me feel better whenever I’m a little down (almost as much as a delicious grilled cheese, especially when it’s … Continue reading »

Comfort Food: Tuna Noodle Casserole

I always thought I didn’t like tuna noodle casserole until college. We had a wonderful southern cook for a few weeks who introduced me to this delicious variation on mac and cheese. I like to think the tuna gives it more nutritional value, but this dish is not about being healthy. I go to this … Continue reading »

Tiramisu

  Tiramisu has been one of my favorite desserts for…well…about as long as I can remember. My favorite is at a restaurant on the upper west side called Celeste. This is more of a traditional tiramisu, but I’m still working on their secret….I think some chocolate chips is part of it, but I’m not sure … Continue reading »

Mushroom and Spinach Bread Pudding

A couple years ago I came across a recipe for savory bread pudding and tried it out. Ever since, it’s been my go-to dish for using up leftovers in the fridge. There are endless varieties that you can make, and it’s actually better if you make it the night before and let it sit. All … Continue reading »

Roasted Snapper with Oranges, Onions, and Marsala

  Roasting a whole fish is as easy as roasting a chicken, but it takes even less time. One fish is perfect for two people for dinner, and if you don’t know how to fillet it, you can just pull pieces off the bones. (Generally, to fillet you cut along the top of the bones … Continue reading »
