Christmas Pasta

So, what do you do when your basil plant is starting to droop, you have an open packet of turkey breast in your fridge, and you want pasta really, really badly? Simple. You make pesto, throw in the turkey breast and some cavatappi, and call it Christmas pasta. Make it green and red, and no…

Orzo Stuffed Fennel

I. Love. Fennel. It may not be in season anymore, but I don’t let little things like that bother me. I will find fennel. And so help me, I will stuff it and bake it. Today, it’s a Mediterranean orzo salad. Tomorrow it could be kimchi. The day after it could be Nutella. There’s no…

Badrijani Nigzvit- Georgia

I don’t like eggplant. I don’t like it at all. I think it’s slimy, and unappealing, and weird. Kind of like the government right now. The difference is, you can deep fry eggplant and make it good. Most things are good deep fried! That sounds so American. I’ve been trying to pass for French since…

Tomato Soup

You can’t have soup week without tomato soup! And you can’t have a president without a brain! Oh yeah! You definitely can! Moron! Him, not me. I like to think I operate on a higher plane. Where was I going with this? I had a point. I know I had a point. I was like…

Vegetable Broth

The base. The OG. The backbone. The broth. Making chicken broth is easy enough- boil some bird bones. But veggie broth? Veggie broth is as easy or complicated as you make it, and it is so, so, so much better than the stuff you get in the store. I like to make this in bulk,…

Worcestershire Spaghetti

This is my go to recipe when I’ve been studying for 7 hours straight and I can’t remember how to spell blue and I NEED PASTA. It takes all of 5 minutes to throw together, and it’s surprisingly healthy! SAT season is coming, and whether you’re taking an exam or have to deal with someone…

Truffle Garlic Green Beans

This is the first of my Thanksgiving recipes! This may well be the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me. And these beans, folks. These beans. These BEANS. Well, truth be told, the beans aren’t the star of the show. It’s really the sauce that makes this dish. The buttery, garlicky, truffle-y, mouthwatering,…

Souse- The Bahamas

It’s the first recipe in the Bs! It took me a while to get around to this one. I kept getting distracted by things like ‘the sauce’. We should get something out of the way: Souse isn’t as photogenic as, say, dandelion green pesto or double chocolate chip cookie pancakes. It’s delicious, what it lacks…

Dandelion Green Pesto with Prosciutto

DANDELION GREEN PESTO WITH PROSCIUTTO   Once upon a time, I went grocery shopping, which I happen to love. And I saw dandelion greens. And the rest of the store faded away. It was just me and those greens. It was like I wasn’t even moving of my own accord, I just knew those greens…

Salmon with “The Sauce”

This dinner had been stewing in my head for a pretty long time. This post has also been stewing in my head for a long time. I’ve been meaning to write this post for weeks now! Well, I finally got around to it. This sauce… This sauce will change your life.   INGREDIENTS   Three…
