Citrus Salad with Rosemary

 I love the brightness of citrus in the middle of winter, when we don’t have a lot of good fresh fruit. I add it to salads and grains, but you can’t go wrong with half a grapefruit and a spoon. When I’m looking for something a little more elegant however, this salad is perfect. A … Continue reading »

Herb Roasted Almonds

These make a great snack with drinks, before dinner, or just about anytime. These will be on my table for New Year’s Eve, but they were also out throughout the holidays and were great to munch on between all the big meals. I first had these kind of specially roasted almonds in LA last year, … Continue reading »

Turkey Pot Pie

The great thing about turkey pot pie is that it uses up so many Thanksgiving leftovers in one dish. 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 »

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 »

Olive Oil Poached Bluefish Crostini

Bluefish is a very oily, delicious fish but it sometimes is challenging to cook because it is so strongly flavored. My favorite is smoked bluefish, but until we have a smoker (and a backyard to put it in), I have to find other ways to make it. These crostini are excellent and the pickled salad … 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 »

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 »

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 »

Spelt Pappardelle with Leeks and Mushrooms

As you may know by now, I have a thing for pasta. But after two weeks of pasta-free cleansing, I couldn’t decide what kind I wanted first. And then I started to feel like maybe I shouldn’t be too decadent (with a loaded mac and cheese, for instance), since I just spent two weeks without … Continue reading »
