Rick Andrew Martinez Double Pork Carnitas

Need a totally fail-proof make ahead main to feed a crowd? Rick Andrew Martinez delivers yet another perfect recipe, this time instead of Brown Butter Toffee Cookies, it’s double pork carnitas. That man is so creative. He ruled my taco buffet this weekend and I can confirm that these are tasty both hot and cold….

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…

Sticky Chili Chicken

Well, instead of cooking up one big dish on Sunday afternoon noon, now I cook Saturday nights until one or two in the morning. I’m on week three of this odd cycle and it has become the highlight of my week. I crank up IG Live (again, so weird in itself) and find a DJ…

Ina’s Turkey Sausage Lasagna

What’s the best leftover you can think of that’s delicious served cold? Revenge? Close. For me, it’s anything red sauce pasta, which is how I cam to test drive Ina Garten’s Turkey Sausage Lasagna as part of my Hurricane Dorian readiness plan. This was beyond simple to make and will absolutely be a staple in…

Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles

I made these asparagus puff pastry bundles for a far-too-decadant side for early Valentine’s Day dinner last weekend. The leftovers have been a fun dinner when eaten with a simple green salad. I mean they are basically puff pastry pizza, so what could really go wrong? Without further ado, here’s another easy (and make-ahead recipe)….

Funk Food: Almost Take Out

It’s another funky Friday over here in the land of macarons and mayhem. Though, I must say things are looking more like this than any sort of trouble, which is just fine by me. Socializing and (a few too many) cocktails were out of the way early this week so tonight I’m just talking you…

Super Model Project: Pan-Seared Scallops

Chrissy Teigan dragged this recipe off straight off of a Sports Illustrated ¬†photo shoot. She told me herself. Spearfishing for scallops in designer swimwear is tough, but it sure does burn calories – which comes in real handy as this recipe features both butter AND oil. Lucky arteries. Actually, it was really delicious and stupidly…

Mayhem Breakfast Pizza

The best Sundays in the world are grabbing a coffee and the NY Times, throwing on some jazz, and cooking a savory breakfast while the person who gives you butterflies curls up on the couch to start their day and trade fantasy football players. Brunch should be served with champagne and then you are going…

Cheesy Pooooofs

I recently made these gorgeous creatures for a dinner party stater. So easy and quick, your spawn could do it! That is… If you remembered to thaw the puff pastry….which I didn’t. Thankfully, 30 minutes on the counter while showered and pulled an outfit together worked out just perfectly. Cheesy Poofs – Classy Edition One…
