Spanakopita with Swiss Chard and Homemade Ricotta

Spanakopita with Swiss Chard and Homemade Ricotta

I love Swiss chard. The bunches of “bright lights” we’ve got growing in a pot outside aren’t doing so hot (not sure what would cause chard to stop growing but it’s been “not quite...

Brie and Garlic Scape Pizza

Brie and Garlic Scape Pizza

I’m always on a quest for the best pizza crust recipe. Both Taylor and I love the thin and crispy kind, so at least we are in agreement of what the “best” will be....

Weekend Update

Thought you would all want a little garden update, considering the last time I posted these pots were still empty and the itty bitty seedlings were still in the shower. My how they grow...

Orecchiette with Italian Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Anchovy Croutons

Orecchiette with Italian Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Crunchy Garlic Breadcrumbs

I’ve eaten broccoli rabe twice. The first time, I hated it. We spent something ridiculous like $6 for a bunch of broccoli rabe (obviously out of season) in the grocery store. Can’t remember exactly...

Steak with Cucumber and Radish Salsa

If Taylor had to pick one thing to eat, his last supper of sorts, it would probably look something like this. Savory morsels. Little bites of pork and cheese. To him, this is the...

Strawberry Pomegranate Sorbet

Strawberry Pomegranate Sorbet

Strawberry Shortcake with Cream Biscuits

Strawberry Shortcake with Cream Biscuits

Darn those farmers’ market strawberry vendors. It would have been perfectly reasonable to pick up a pint of ripe local berries, but of course, they had to be running a special: 3 pints for...

Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Banana Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

I’m diving into this whole real-milk ice cream thing head first. This is the third batch of ice cream I’ve made in two weeks, and I’ve already got a few more recipes lined up...
