Sparkly Cranberry Cake

I realize the holidays were nearly a month ago now, so consider this recipe a bit late or bit early for Valentine’s Day. You will want to make this for Valentine’s Day. It has red accents like that. Maybe just sub out some raspberries and let me know how it goes. This cake is THAT…

Funk Food: Waffles!

In between reliving some delicious food and drink from the recentĀ last-minute trip to the UK , I’m attempting to detox from booze (UGH) and eat low carb (UGH UGH). It has been absolutely freezing this week and the only hobby I want to have is pasta and wine. Last night, about every person I know…

But(ternut) this Salad, Though

A couple of weeks ago, I awoke for the strongest craving for butternut squash. The need for that Carmelized savoury goodness just could be stopped. The weird thing was I had never tasted butternut squash before…so why was I craving it? I imagine this is what being pregnant must be like. Naturally, I listened to…

Stir Fry this into Rotation

In an effort to cook with sambal as much as possible before heading to Indonesia (hopefully) very soon, I stir fried a massive vat of veggies and chicken for the week. My current stir fry obsession was a peanut sauce based s’fry. Today, we leave that all behind in search of more heat. This recipe…

Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

What Came First? The Eggplant or the Emoji? šŸ†

This weekend I hosted company who freakin’ loves some eggplant – the food not the emoji. So, I found the most wonderful looking recipe I could find and readied myself to making a delicious main dish for Saturday night dinner. Naturally, I leaned on Ina Garten’s Eggplant Gratin. Now Ina’s recipes are so foolproof that…

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon. There, I said it. It’s basically a 0 on the ass whooping scale. On one hand you have God’s most perfect food, pretzel bread, and on the other belly flattening salmon. This has to even out to zero. Right? That’s what I’m telling myself and you should too. I took Ina…

Tipple THIS. Ina Did.

Looking for a drink that’s so multipurpose that it could have you… texting an ex (if you needed an excuse), getting arrested for public indecency, planning dope adventures, spending too much money, DJing at a strange party, and rewatching SATC a decade too late….All at the same damn time? Does it also need to be…

Funk Food: Eggplant Pizza

The Funk Food of the weekend was Julia Child’s Eggplant Pizzas. They are ludicrously easy and just as delicious. I’m not sure how something so simple is so delicious, but that’s precisely when to not ask questions. Add toasted breadcrumbs to soak up any tears of confusion. Naked and afraid eggplants doing their thang. This…

Funk Food: Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles

My life is beginning to feel like a constant ebb and flow of travel and eating whatever I want and coming home and counting calories. It’s a little annoying as it seems like the last couple years if I just look at food the wrong way, the weight sticks around FOREVER. Anyone else feeling the…

Nutella Bark

What’s the world’s most perfect food? Nutella, of course! That’s why when I needed a truly quick (like 20 minutes) quick treat to bake for a recent birthday, I turned to this super simple recipe. It’s the quality ingredients that make it, so it can be a tad pricey to throw together, but perfect when…

Nutella Crack

This is a Momofuku Milk Bar recipe (purportedly) that is (purportedly) more addictive than crack. I whipped up dinner for my neighbor last weekend and we had this for dessert. He took the leftovers home in (his) dirty Tupperware that had previously housed egg rolls. He claims that this recipe was so good it didn’t…
