Butternut Squash Risotto

This was an incredibly easy weeknight dinner after a week of long and involved meals. You can also potentially use up holiday leftovers, since I pre-roasted the squash the day before and added the mashed squash right at the end. It still has all the holiday flavors, but it’s great all winter long. Butternut Squash … Continue reading »

Lemon Chicken with Fresh Fettuccine

I finally got around to trying out the new pasta machine a couple weeks ago when we had some great friends over. It’s a bit of a project to make fresh pasta, but it’s worth it. Plus, you can add in anything you want flavor-wise, although I generally just make plain pasta because I like … Continue reading »

No-cook or Quick-cooking Dinner for Hot Weather

We have been having a long heat wave here in NY, and I can’t quite bring myself to heat up the kitchen again until it breaks. I’m thinking about some no-cook or quick-cooking meals, and of course, the first thing I think of is salad. I love a beautiful caprese salad with fresh tomatoes and … Continue reading »

Flounder in Cartoccio

This is a perfect quick spring dish– I came home from work late and made it in 15 minutes. (That’s also why there are no “after” pictures– in those few minutes it got dark out.) You can do this with any kind of fish or any toppings you want (although it works better with less … Continue reading »

White Wine Sangria

Sangria is one of my favorite things to make in the summer. You can make up a big pitcher and it’s just a party in a glass. For some reason, it transports me to the beach or a picnic or a cookout– maybe it’s the fun colors. You can make infinite varieties and I love … Continue reading »

Asparagus, Ramp, and Leek Soup

It’s that time of year where everyone goes crazy over ramps. I tend to like them best in pastas and risottos or with eggs, but I decided to try them in this soup. It’s the perfect spring soup, which I like to leave a little chunky by using my immersion blender. If you can’t get … Continue reading »

Tagliatelle with Cabbage, Shrimp, and Pecorino

Ok, I know this doesn’t sound like something you’re going to go right out any make, but I truly urge you to try it. It’s such a perfect, delicious, surprising pasta and it’s one of my favorites. They make a similar dish at one of my favorite NYC restaurants, Celeste, and I had to try … 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 »

Shrimp Bisque

While this soup is not necessarily Italian, I think it works very well with all the other flavors. You could substitute marsala or another sweet Italian dessert wine and it would be maybe a little more authentic, but I’m a big fan of the Sherry with the shrimp. I served this in little glasses because … Continue reading »

Shrimp alla Buzara

I got the idea for this one from a Lidia Bastianich Feast of the Seven Fishes, and it’s delicious. It was a little unclear if the breadcrumbs are meant to be sprinkled on top or if they are supposed to thicken the sauce, but either way it’ll work. She says it’s from the Northern Adriatic … Continue reading »
