Stracciatella Gelato

There’s chocolate chip ice cream. And then there is stracciatella gelato. Don’t you dare think one is a direct translation of the other because that is grossly untrue. And if you’ve ever had true stracciatella gelato, you’ll know exactly what I mean. Stracciatella is… otherworldly. You’d think plain vanilla ice cream with bits of chocolate...

Roasted Fennel and Israeli Cous Cous Salad

You want real life? This is it. This is how we eat on nights when we haven’t specifically planned to make something else. On nights like those, we basically take what’s in the fridge, roast it, toss it with cous cous, and top it with goat cheese (always goat cheese). Sometimes it’s quinoa, or pasta,...

Brûléed Yogurt with Fresh Fruit

Mornings are boring. Cereal is boring. Yogurt is boring. Unfortunately I rarely have, or want to devote, enough time to make something for breakfast that is not boring. This recipe is literally ready in minutes, and just might change my mind about boring yogurt once and for all. This recipe was inspired by a dish...

Marinated Chickpea Sandwiches with Lemon Confit

Taylor has been talking about a marinated chickpea sandwich for months now. I don’t know where the idea came from but I finally told him to just find a recipe and make the damn sandwiches already. Less talk and more action; put your money sandwich where your mouth is. I started calling these the 72-hour...

Raspberry Sea Salt Brownies

There are some things you expect in a good brownie. A rich, chocolate flavor. A chewy, fudgy texture. A crispy, crinkly top. With that in mind, these brownies are both expected and unexpected, both sweet and sour, overly decadent with a surprising brightness and salty finish. I expected the raspberries to mellow out in the...

Magimix® Vision Toaster Giveaway

Our old toaster was pathetic. Really. When we first moved to Tennessee, while Taylor was reluctantly painting our kitchen walls turquoise, I spent hours online picking out a toaster. I finally purchased a cute little $35 toaster on eBay, wooed by the turquoise color and less concerned about the actual functionality of it. When the...

Purslane and Pickled Strawberry Salad with Fried Goat Cheese

Pickled fruit is not a new concept, but I don’t see it utilized nearly often enough. Heck, it’s not something I utilize often enough. Because pickled fruit, is, to put it bluntly, kind of awesome. Now, don’t confused pickled fruit with dill pickles. A ‘pickle’ is, technically, simply something (fruit or vegetable or otherwise) that...
