Torchy’s Tacos Copycat Street Corn

First thing’s first: I don’t care much for corn. However the success of my street cauliflower and the visit of my wee niece and nephew had me recreating the dish for something simpler and more traditional- corn. It was a hit! I even liked it. What I didn’t like were the corn ‘hairs’ as I…

Limoncello Cookies

My loves, I miss you! I think about you and writing all the time, but it’s all been a bit full on lately, hasn’t it? I haven’t been cooking, like at all. Minor lie, Monday I decided to braise a pork roast and ended up throwing the entire thing straight into the garbage, it was…

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…

Most Popular Recipes on the Blog

Hope that everyone’s quarantine is going as well as can be expected during these strange times. If you’re like me and everyone else in America, err the world, you have been cooking up a storm! While I personally have yet to make banana bread this quarantine, everyone else is which is why it seemed necessary…

Shallot and Prosciutto Pinwheels

What’s an appetizer you can grocery shop for in advance when you don’t have a car because you’re supposed to be moving to Europe in two weeks- Shallot and Prosciutto Pinwheels! Three of us devoured the entire batch of this easy, make-ahead tread on Easter. They were also enhanced with a mustard-horseradish sauce intended for…

What’s Gaby Cooking? Beef Larb

You know I’m ride or die with Chrissy Teigan’s recipes, but lately Gaby has been my girl. After making the chicken larb a couple times in a row, it was time for a shake-up with her beef larb recipe. While it was a nice change, hands down the best one so far has been the…

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…

White Chocolate Banana Pudding Pie Trifle

Real Talk: I have never had banana pudding. Ever. I also hate fake flavorings, so I don’t know what compelled me to need to make and consume this. Perhaps an old school comfort food in a daunting time? Since no faux banana flavor would be used in this recipe, white chocolate would have to do…

The Charles- Dallas

What another weird day in quarantine, eh? I spend half of my day- literally like 12 hours- working, trying to get caught up on projects where I am over due. The other 12 hours I am doing my best to go on walks, not have anxiety attacks, and of course, cancel travel…which is a nightmare….

PSA: Supermodel Soup is Sauce

Public Service Announcement: if you’ve recently made Creamy Tomato Soup, you hopefully, are flipping nuts over it too. If you haven’t; do it. Well, I had a serving left after travel last week and tossed it around some Trader Joe’s arugala/parm ravioli. Brought sauce raviolis to a boil in a medium pan and reduced for…

Alison Roman’s Tiny, Salty, Chocolatey Cookies

Not usually a chocolate gal, but I had a hankering for it this weekend and decided to give this ‘tiny’ cookie recipe from Alison Roman a go… There’s no flour in them, so they’re basically a health food. While very easy to make, something odd happened to my batch. I tried to slide into Alison’s…
