Greek Sc-alad

This weekend I combined two of my food loves- Greek salad and scallops- into a marriage called ‘Scalad.’ Pretty satisfying combination even if the scallops were very sandy like these were. I’m French, they call seared scallops, “snackee” for the sound they make when you sear them. Apparently this is “snack, snack.” No recipe, just…

Hot Greek Salad

Everyone has been baking together feta and tomatoes during quarantine and while I still haven’t tried that, I have invented a hot Greek salad that’s quite nice. It feels healthy, so maybe it will even bring you a hot Greek? Yet to be seen…. It’s a great way to use up veggies in your fridge,…

Supermodel Project: Adeena’s Greenas

Great greens, it’s a healthy post! A move out, followed by a move in without cookware and a birthday….the last couple weeks have been a bit indulgent. And by indulgent, I mean weirdly cheese heavy, but not that weird, because Switzerland. Thankfully, IKEA sent me a pan and Chrissy Teigan had been advertising this recipe…

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…

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…

First Place Recipe of Quarantine: Gaby’s- Chicken Larb Bowls

Chicken Larb Bowls was my first recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking. The recipe were absolutely delicious and very easy to make. I served my larb over Chrissy Teigan’s coconut rice on day one and ate it over salad greens the rest of the week. It was so good, in fact, that I’ll be making it…

Super Model Project: Red Curry Chicken

Chrissy, girl. Friend I’ve never met, spirit animal, sister from another mister, and kitchen diva… I love you. I love your recipes… I LIKED this one. It was tasty, it was easy, it tasted like a comforting piece of home. BUT IT WASN’T SPICY ENOUGH. Not even close. I realize you wrote Cravings 2 when…

Ina’s Pork Tenderloin

I made a nice pre-second-to-last-GoT episode dinner on Sunday basically because I needed an occasion to cook Ina Garten’s pork tenderloin recipe. (Oh, and a get-rid-of-all-the-veggies (and bacon) sweet potato hash). Nom. So, Ina suggest serenading (marinating) the tenderloins for 3-24 hours. I’m an overachiever and opted for 32 hours and it was just delightful….

Funk Food: Take Out Level Stir Fry at Home

The other night, after a really long work day, I decided to cook for company at the last minute. I figured a stir fry would be easy and fairly quick so I just bought all the seemingly relevant items and went to town. I promised myself I’d give it a quick Goog and just commit…

Zucchini Carbonara

Sometimes you come home from a couple weeks of travel and eat a pizza and sometimes you make Paleo recipes like this Zucchini Carbonara. I was very skeptical of this, but my love of all foods Italian and my need for my pants to fit are at a constant battle, so it seemed worth a…

Green Eggs and Ham – aka the recipe for Arugula Pesto

Just in time for St. Pat’s, or Dr. Seuss Week…I understand that is a thing…? Here is a very festive way to clean out your fridge – a green eggs and ham egg bake. First, you’re going to take that bag of arugula that you bought a week ago and didn’t really touch and turn…

Funk Food: Sweet Potato Muffins

After my weekend of experiments with mashed sweet potatoes, I didn’t know what to do with all of the leftovers…and there were quite a few! I came across this recipe on Pinterest for “muffins” made of mashed sweet potato. They looked lovely, but after they came out of the oven, I wasn’t totally bowled over…
