I’m generally irritated by food trends that hone in on a flavor and then you see it EVERYWHERE. I find the whole red velvet craze particularly irritating – red velvet pancakes, red velvet Oreos, red velvet M&M’s, red velvet vodka, red velvet doughnuts, red velvet whoopie pies – the list goes on and on. Thankfully […]
If you aren’t familiar with the roasted red pepper dip, Muhammara, it’s time to get aquatinted. It’s spicy, smokey and just the right level of spice. Amazing smeared on bread or pitas, but also makes a great dip for vegetables. This version uses jarred, roasted red peppers, making it perfect for these dull winter months […]
It’s been blisteringly cold here in the north-east this weekend. Among other things, this means boot weather for this spoiled little girl. I’ve been getting over some horrible cold or flu thing, and having to outfit Aida with boots in my woozy state, has been slightly irritating to mildly dangerous. Luckily Aida is […]
I will be making this over, and over and over again. First, because I am a total sucker for anything with sour cream, and second because it’s completely amazing. How could you go wrong with soft, fluffy […]
I’ve said it before, but fall is my absolute favorite time of year – the cool weather, the fall colors and who could forget all of the amazing food? It has been an incredibly gorgeous fall in PA too. The temperatures have been mild and the leaves have lasted forever.
As usual, Aida […]
So much has happened in the past four months – we’ve been to Norway, Sweden and Iceland (again), we’re finally feeling settled in our new apartment, and my little sister got married. All the while, I’ve been cooking, baking and trying new recipes, and enjoying some […]
I drove back to New York to spend the 4th with my parents, and like any other trip home, it involves a lot of cooking, baking, grilling and cocktails. We picked sour cherries and strawberries from a local fruit farm, and made a lovely pie, and this deliciously easy strawberry shortcake.
It’s hard to believe that four years ago today, I was sitting at my computer in Columbus writing up this same recipe, and posting my first ever post. I don’t typically like to get corny or sentimental on the blog, but everything kind of fell perfectly into place, so why the hell not? Please just […]
I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend. Mike has been traveling so Aida and I have been cleaning and organizing the new place, going to the park, and binge watching entourage like it’s nobody’s business.
I love fajitas in the summer. It’s a quick, low fuss meal that can be thrown on […]
So, if you haven’t heard already, Chipotle released their Guac recipe last month. How awesome is that?!? I’ve probably made it about five times now. Even when half of my kitchen was boxed up, ready to move, I figured out how to make due for homemade guac. I’ve always been a huge fan of […]
