Ina’s Cacio e Pepe Eggs

Ms. Ina claims she makes cacio e pepe eggs for dinner parties of the ‘breakfast for dinner’ variety. While I find this somewhat hard to believe as this was exceptionally simple, they were a little more special than your usual scramble, so why not. I’ll buy it, like I’m off to buy some more Pecorino….

Greek Lemony Chicken Soup

There’s something to be said about the worse the photo, but if it’s posted here, that the recipe must be REALLY good. This is one of those. My photographic skills are not only lacking, but more so here as I couldn’t wait to dive into this bowl of flavorful goodness. ADDITIONALLY, I am not one…

Loaded Biscuits

Loaded biscuits, biscuit bombs, cheddar-apple-bacon-chive biscuits, clean-out-the-fridge biscuits. Would a biscuit by any other name smell as savory? Whatever you call them, hop to it for a winter morning loaded in biscuity indulgence. Loaded Biscuits

Ina’s (Chipotle & Rosemary) Nuts

Wow- Ina’s nuts are DELICIOUS! These savory, slightly sweet nuts are going to be in regular rotation of my apero menus. My guests agreed that these were the standout of the meal and I’m only sad I sent a nice chunk of them away as part of my lovely hostess duties. Ina’s Nuts

Cold Longevity Noodle Salad

It turns out that longevity is a lot like revenge and is best served cold. This simple dish was a standout of my lunar new year brunch with friends taking it to go and it being the highlight of the following seriously bonkers work days. Save yourself about half of the sauce and prep extra…

Spring Roll Crisps

Need a simple and ludicrously easy impressive looking snack that you’ll also find as the starter of The Cape hotel in Cabo? Thought so. What a happy accident to stumble into this no-recipe recipe! Spring Roll Crisps

Chrissy’s Cucumber Salad

Happy lunar new year, ya’ll! I don’t know anyone more ready for some cleansing, fresh vibes than this girl right here…which I suppose is ironic being that the holiday was ushered in by a carb-laden dim sum brunch and just wee bit of wine with the girls. There was this cucumber salad that Chrissy Teigan…

Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice

One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is anything involving spicy tuna and bonus points if its resting on a bed of crispy rice. So, when I found this original Nobu copycat recipe, I knew that this had to be my special new year’s eve dinner. I need to try again on the rice as I’m…

Hashbrown Crust Quiche

Christmas this year saw the introduction of a beautiful new brunch creation that was as simple to make as it is colorful– hasbrown crust quiche! Made in a springform pan, it looks daringly more elegant and complicated than it actually is. She held together quite nicely when sliced! Hashbrown Crust Quiche For the crust: For…

Ina’s Chipotle Cheddar Crackers

I must have been good this year as I received TWO new Ina cookbooks for my collection! Despite not planning any meals whatsoever while at my parents’ house, I had to break into Ina’s ‘Go To Dinners’ with…well…not a dinner, but the best salty, savory, apero snack I’ve made in awhile. ‘Twas so nice, I…

Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles

Leftover whipped sweet potatoes crowding your fridge? I can attest that shoving them in some waffle batter is an excellent use of their efforts for breakfast the next day and perform equally as well in the toaster on day two. Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles Adapted from Grace and Good Eats

Ina’s Winter Squash Soup

Is it clear I’m coming upon 40… I love soup….this must be a key sign of entering the next decade. This one was so easy, so comforting, and ludicrously simple if you buy squash that is already cubed. It’s definitely one for the winter rotation and if you top it with pretzel bread croutons and…
