Ina’s Salmon with Melting Tomatoes

Funny how stressful quarantines are better suited for wine and popcorn rather than the latest gourmet Mediterranean meal. Tonight would be different- tonight the Chrissy Teigan style of cooking salmon takes a Mediterranean vacation (that I could really, REALLY do with) with Ina Garten and this lovely recipe. The whole bit cooks for 11 minutes…

Gaby Made a Thai Beef Salad

How gorgeous is this salad from What’s Gaby Cooking? Yet ANOTHER win from this woman. Beautiful and cheese free which is what we are trying to be – at least this week. Her recipe is real heavy on the sesame oil, so I’m sharing my take here. Also, the original recipe calls for a crunchy,…

The Fluffiest of Omelettes

Need something to impress your luvah (orrrrrrr just yourself) and have nothing in the fridge? Thought so. I imagine that’s why Gaby whipped up this insanely gorgeous, impressive, and oddly simple recipe just for the occasion of Sunday morning luvah-land. Gaby’s Omelette Edit 3 large eggs, separated 1 T. parmesan Salt & pepper 1 T….

Gaby’s Chicken Schnitzel

One of the few saving graces of quarantine has been the chance to pause, reflect, and cook a whole bunch of things that you usually would not bother with. For me, this was Gaby’s Chicken Schnitzel (sounds a little…cheeky, no?). I was all, ok fine, that looks not that interesting, but since Gaby so highly…

Funk Food: Crab Fried “Rice”

This is one of those recipes that you know must be wonderful because my photos are so.damn.bad. I’m not much for cauliflower rice – it’s clearly not the carb it masquerades to be and it makes my stomach hurt? No thanks. I’ll just eat a salad. After reviewing my favorite Brewery Bhavana’s menu for their…

Gaby’s LA Chop Salad

This salad might be a contender for the best dish of quarantine. It’s like a deli sandwich exploded and the bread just disappeared, leaving a crunchy, fresh, meaty pile of chop in it’s wake. Wonderful. The real recipe also calls for chickpeas, but if I’m eating that level of carb, it’s going to be pasta….

Keto Street Cauliflower

This cauliflower is from the streets. The hard streets of Cast Iron Keto brought this idea to life, with some tweaks to the sauciness. The cauliflower grew up with a hard knock life, educated on the on the streets of Juarez. Or just like street corn, but better. Your choice. Either way, it was great…

Gaby’s Pan-Roasted Eggplant with Pecorino

Made this for the real eggplant lover in my life, who of course, loved it. To me it was good, but not life changing. Eggplant is a mop for oil and this recipe, the eggplants just kept drinking and drinking it up. They were good, but definitely felt like something a heavy-handed Italian grandmother would…

Garlicky Twisted Gaby Guac

My favorite read of quarantine has been What’s Gaby Cooking’s newest cookbook, “Eat What you Want!” Again, makes me wonder why I am just starting my relationship with her and how I don’t own the others yet! As I’ve made my way through her book, I have been saving her guacamole recipe for Cinco de…

Green Goddess Chicken and Dressing

This week was an experiment in eating green – chicken AND dressing. I took a recipe from the NYT and a dressing inspiration from What’s Gaby Cooking and made a salad sent straight from the garden. With this creation, you’ll get two, TWO items from the price of one. Love a sale! This color! Am…

Super Model Project: Sweet Miso-Butter Cod and Snap Peas

On Saturday a lovely bottle of champagne found its way to my doorstep. It would have been wrong not to bring it in and keep it very close to me during these trying times, so that is exactly what I did. This probably explains why I never got around to plating the Sweet Miso-Butter Cod…

Third Place Recipe of Quarantine: Teigan’s Parmesan Waffles

It’s Sunday morning, and if you aren’t immediately heading to your kitchen to whip of the third place recipe of quarantine, are you even living? Holy hell, these are incredible and not all that carb heavy. The parmesan brings a umami quality that I cannot even explain. Your kitchen smells incredible and after you eat…
