Individual Bread Puddings

Bread pudding is the perfect way to use up leftovers, whether it’s vegetables from last night’s dinner, bacon from yesterday’s breakfast (who has leftover bacon?!), or bits of cheese after that party. The important thing is to have some flavorings like onions, garlic, and herbs along with cheese and eggs to soak into day old … Continue reading »

Feast of the Seven Fishes (Year 2)

This year’s Feast of the Seven Fishes is probably going to be reduced by a couple courses to maybe 5 or even just 3. The important part of the Feast is that it’s an odd number of courses. The most traditional of my courses is the baccala alla vicentina, which is one of my favorites. … Continue reading »

Parsnip Gratin

Gratins make anything better. A nice cheesy, crunchy crust on top of any vegetable is an improvement. I also love that you can make gratins ahead of time and finish the cooking in the oven, so you can leave the kitchen and entertain guests. And of course this makes them perfect for the holidays, when … Continue reading »

Boozy Bourbon Milkshake

The big tip with boozy milkshakes is to chill the alcohol if you are using something you don’t already keep cold. In this one, I use bourbon and a hint of Kahlua along with good vanilla ice cream. Always a good end to a meal. Boozy Bourbon Milkshake 2 cups vanilla ice cream 2 ounces … Continue reading »

Plum Skillet Cake

The best part about this cake is that it’s incredibly easy and done in half an hour. It’s part clafouti (which is a french pancake-like tart), part cake, and you can make it with any kind of fruit. I think next time I would cut the fruit smaller and try to squeeze in more, but … Continue reading »

Strawberry Cake

Strawberries are probably my favorite fruit. Or maybe blueberries. Either way, I overdose on all things strawberry when I see huge spreads of them at the farmers market. At some point, I decided I wanted to try them in some cake and I found a recipe on Smitten Kitchen that I edited a bit. This … 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 »

Pomegranate Vanilla Panna Cotta

I’m a big fan of panna cotta– you can make it ahead, you don’t have to bake it, and it’s creamy and delicious. There’s an infinite variety of ways you can make it, and this version layers a vanilla bean panna cotta with a pomegranate gelatin (homemade jello, of you will). The original recipe I … 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 »

Linguine Bolognese

I’m not a big fan of going out for Valentine’s Day because restaurants typically overcharge and it feels a little forced. Plus, my favorite evenings are ones spent at home over a delicious meal– why do something different? I see Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to be reminded how good we have it every other … Continue reading »
