These tiny, sweet bay scallops are perfect as a quick bite to start a special meal. I paired them with a small glass of my shrimp bisque in this duo of seafood appetizers, and they were both among my favorites. The scallops have a tangerine juice reduction drizzled over the top, along with some wonderful extra … Continue reading »

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 »

Roasted Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We survived the hurricane without any damage beyond getting a little stir-crazy, so I have to feel pretty grateful. We didn’t lose power or have any terrible flooding, but all we could do for days was watch the damage on TV. Of course, one of my first plans of action was to get to work … 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.

Weeknight Veal Ragu

I love a good bolognese, but sometimes I just don’t have time on a weeknight to invest in making it. That’s where this kind of pasta sauce comes in. It cooks in the time it takes to boil a big pot of water, and it uses enough veal to flavor the sauce but not enough … 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 »

Farinata

This is a traditional Ligurian recipe made from chickpea flour, so it’s gluten-free. I particularly liked making it really thin, so it gets nice and crispy. You can change the toppings or leave them off completely, and it’s a delicious hearty snack. This is an adaptation of an original recipe from Marcella Hazan, the Julia … Continue reading »

Roasted Thyme Tomatoes

I love heirloom cherry tomatoes from the farmer’s market. They are so sweet and flavorful, and I love to make a big batch of these slow-roasted tomatoes and keep them in the fridge to toss in everything. They’re also fabulous on their own, just on a couple slices of toasted baguette. The olive oil mixes … Continue reading »
