Flourless Brownies, Two Ways

April 16th, 2012

Flourless Brownies, Two Ways

Many people probably used Passover as an opportunity to diet, cut out the carbs and sweets for a week, eat more salad. I concocted two different types of flourless brownies and made ice cream sundaes with them every night.

Northern Spy’s Kale Salad

January 13th, 2012

Northern Spy’s Kale Salad

So I know I just posted a kale salad recipe, but you can never have too much raw kale in your diet, kiddies.

Dijon-Braised Brussels Sprouts

December 13th, 2011

Dijon-Braised Brussels Sprouts

I made these Brussels sprouts twice this week. Yes, this recipe’s a definite keeper, but also I had to make them a second time because the first time I was too distracted by what our new edition, Joey, was getting into to take pictures. And the distraction was totally justified; I took my eyes off [...]

Gluten-Free Kale Tart

November 15th, 2011

Gluten-Free Kale Tart

About a month ago we had dinner with our friends Ruthie and Forrest, and Ruthie made this kale tart. While we were eating it she totally talked it down, saying how it wasn’t as good as it normally was and she had to leave out the cranberries, etc., but I loved it. So much so [...]

Raw Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad

October 31st, 2011

Raw Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad

Bring this to Thanksgiving this year only if you want the majority of your family and friends to glower and sneer. It’s a slawlike salad of finely shredded kale and sliced brussels sprouts, topped with toasted walnuts and parmesan, and dressed in a mustard vinaigrette; Bon Appetit advertises that it will “cut through the richness [...]

Pumpkin Soup

October 10th, 2011

Pumpkin Soup

The first time I tried to carve a pumpkin, I was shocked by how difficult it was and ended up having to draw the face on with a Sharpie. All those Halloweens I’d watched my dad do it in the backyard, it had looked easy; he, and the job of carving those big pumpkins, suddenly [...]

Raw Corn Salad

September 7th, 2011

Raw Corn Salad

The span of days between posts is creeping to greater and greater numbers, and I’ve been going back and forth between feeling guilty and defensive, between wanting to explain/justify/apologize for this obvious lapse and wanting to ignore it, pretend it’s not happening, hoping that in the grand scheme of the blog this summer will be [...]

Almond Butter & Blueberry Jam

July 26th, 2011

Almond Butter & Blueberry Jam

I’m not one of those people who likes fresh berries best by the handful. I need them doctored: sugared and baked into pies, cobblers, and crumbles; blended with yogurt and honey and juice into a smoothie; churned into an ice cream; simmered into a sauce, compote, or jam. If I was my normal self these [...]

Moroccan Carrot Salad

July 9th, 2011

Moroccan Carrot Salad

Ironically I’m pretty sure I’ve actually lost weight since becoming a full-fledged baker/pastry chef/chef or whatever I am nowadays. The sweltering heat of my basement kitchen is utterly appetite-killing; the prospect of having to taste test a new scone or muffin, vomit-inducing. I throw back glass after glass of icy water yet rarely pee. All [...]

Black Pepper Chicken Thighs with Mango, Rum, and Cashews

May 11th, 2011

Black Pepper Chicken Thighs with Mango, Rum, and Cashews

I made this chicken last week, which will forever be known as Ice Cream Week (decision still pending on that project, btw), and I keep forgetting that I need to tell you about it. I’ve been too busy gallivanting around in this gorgeous sunshine, walking along the Hudson River Park and the High Line, making [...]

24 Egg White Frittata

May 6th, 2011

24 Egg White Frittata

It’s time to address what’s been going on over here. I’ve been working on an ice cream project. Okay, but that’s all I’m going to say for now. As I’ve mentioned before, making ice cream requires a lot of egg yolks, thus leaving you with a lot of egg whites. When I first started making [...]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

April 15th, 2011

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Well, it seems I’ve met my match: a dessert so ridiculously rich I can barely stomach it. I’ve only been able to eat this cake in the thinnest possible slivers, and only then with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream to temper the intensity of the chocolate. I’ve gone back for a second sliver [...]

Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip

April 8th, 2011

Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip

There are two things I can count on the husband to say every time we eat a meal together at home: (1) “Did you make a pie?” (this during the last bites of the meal) and (2) “Where’s the appetizer?” (this at the moment he walks in the door and sees that I’m still sweating [...]

Almond Chicken Soup with Sweet Potatoes, Collards, and Ginger

April 5th, 2011

Almond Chicken Soup with Sweet Potatoes, Collards, and Ginger

Wait, what is this? Oh riiight, it’s that soup I made back I have no idea when. But I remember it being good, real good, like a peanut soup but with almond butter instead of peanut butter, aromatic of fresh ginger and lime, and with collard greens and sweet potatoes thrown in for…a bit of [...]

Greek Squash Frittata

March 4th, 2011

Greek Squash Frittata

I feel a bit uncomfortable referring to butternut squash as simply squash, since to me “squash” refers to the crook-necked yellow variety that my mom would always make. But up north the default squash seems to be butternut, a winter squash, which makes perfect sense seeing how it’s winter here for most of the year.

Blood Orange Ice Cream

March 2nd, 2011

Blood Orange Ice Cream

A few posts ago I briefly mentioned a blood orange olive oil cake that I made and loved two years ago but that disappointed me when I made it this year because the oranges I bought were bitter. I was turned off to blood oranges for a few weeks, but I eventually had to give [...]

Glazed Roast Chicken with Porcini and Potatoes

February 28th, 2011

Glazed Roast Chicken with Porcini and Potatoes

“How the hell does one complicate a roast chicken?!?!” was the response I got when I texted my cousin that I’d made a really good roast chicken, “but it was a complicated one.” How does one turn a dish that should be simple and straightforward into a four-hour-long headache of loads of dirtied pots and [...]

Filets Mignons with Mushroom Sauce

February 16th, 2011

Filets Mignons with Mushroom Sauce

The husband requested filet mignon for dinner. I said, “boring!” The compromise was that I got to make a sauce. Filet doesn’t need one, of course, but where is the fun in simply searing some salt-and-peppered steaks in a pan?

Braised Cabbage

February 11th, 2011

Braised Cabbage

I’ve been saving this one for a lull. It’s not like I haven’t been cooking over here (although I’ll be the first to admit that the scale has tilted sharply in favor of desserts, leaving actual food by the wayside), it’s just that a recent slew of ambitious recipes has failed to excite me as [...]

Gluten-Free Vegan Snickerdoodles

January 27th, 2011

Gluten-Free Vegan Snickerdoodles

Don’t be afraid! You’ve come to a happy place. Although I get why you might be wary and confused, because why on earth am I making gluten-free vegan cookies? Well. I have this gig where I test recipes from upcoming cookbooks, which I’ve mentioned before, and when my editor (I love saying that, “my editor”) gave me [...]

Vanilla-Almond Rice Pudding with Dried Currants

January 21st, 2011

Vanilla-Almond Rice Pudding with Dried Currants

I realize that complaining about the weather is the most boringest thing ever, but gosh darn it, this is the coldest, most horrendous winter ever, and no, I don’t say that every year. On the contrary, I am a self-professed winter lover who finds the cold air invigorating and the falling snow throat-catchingly beautiful, and [...]

Chicken with Roasted Grapes

January 17th, 2011

Chicken with Roasted Grapes

Does chicken with roasted grapes sound a little odd to you? It did to me, which is why I needed to make it.

Smoky Spanish Carrots with Fennel and Toasted Hazelnuts

January 12th, 2011

Smoky Spanish Carrots with Fennel and Toasted Hazelnuts

When you make these carrots (and you will make them), do yourself a favor and double the recipe because it’s really disappointing first of all to only have a teensy bit of them left over and more disappointing still to come home after a long, hard day of work and gym to discover that that [...]

Tortilla Soup

January 6th, 2011

Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup is a movie. It’s also a soup.

Macaroons, Two Ways

January 4th, 2011

Macaroons, Two Ways

No one wants to look at cookies right now, I know I know I know. It’s officially diet and exercise season. But I suspect that some peoples’ resolutions for the new year included being more organized, planning ahead, and procrastinating less, and so this is how I’ll spin the macaroons: it’s never too early to [...]

Roasted Cod with Herb Vinaigrette

December 19th, 2010

Roasted Cod with Herb Vinaigrette

When we’re feeling like we’ve been eating “badly” and need to cleanse, we eat fish to reset ourselves. It totally works. But I hardly ever get creative with it because I like fish best when it’s simply roasted, seasoned with herbs, fresh or dried, whatever I have, and finished off with plenty of lemon juice. [...]

Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Almonds

December 12th, 2010

Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Almonds

I wasn’t sure exactly how many beets I’d need for the ice cream, so I overbought, planning to make one of my favorite salads with the extra. There’s nothing revolutionary about pairing beets and goat cheese, I know, but there’s a reason everyone does it. Sweet, earthy, firm beets are simply perfect with slightly tangy, [...]

Beet Ice Cream

December 10th, 2010

Beet Ice Cream

A month ago or a couple months ago or something (I’ve sorta lost track of time) I hired a web designer person to help me redesign the blog. When Nick and I had our preliminary meeting, he confessed to me that he was tinkering with homemade beet ice cream. I think it goes without saying [...]

My Chili

December 3rd, 2010

My Chili

I have a huge pink recipe binder full of clippings from magazines and newspapers and annotated printouts from blogs and emails, as well as handwritten recipes on index cards from grandmothers, but I’m pretty sure this is the only recipe in there that I actually typed up as a Word document, printed out, and three-hole [...]

Whatchamacallits

November 30th, 2010

Whatchamacallits

Probably all of you remember my little rant on Halloween about wishing I could stay home and make homemade candy bars instead of going out. I went to the party that night, but I promised that the homemade candy bars would happen, and when I promise something, I deliver, even if no one could give [...]

Roasted Butternut Squash with Sage-Hazelnut Goat Cheese

November 20th, 2010

Roasted Butternut Squash with Sage-Hazelnut Goat Cheese

This was so super delicious and pretty. Spicy, savory, sweet, nutty, herby, creamy, and seasonally appropriate. Basically perfect. Except for one thing. It’s so troublesome, I can’t put it out of my mind: the sage-hazelnut goat cheese looks like crumbled blue cheese. If you were approaching this dish at a buffet table, for instance, you’d [...]

Brussels Sprout Hash

November 16th, 2010

Brussels Sprout Hash

I have to get something off my chest. I’d already been feeling guilty that I hadn’t posted a main course in a while because I know sometimes people are just like, gimme something to make for dinner tonight, and yo, where’s the beef? And then I was looking over my ridiculously long queue (I say [...]

Sweet Potato Fries with Marshmallow Sauce and Ranch

November 6th, 2010

Sweet Potato Fries with Marshmallow Sauce and Ranch

Back in the early days of this blog, one of my first loyal readers (what up, Danny!) wrote me an email detailing an experience that had changed his life forever. A longtime fan of sweet potato fries paired with ranch, he was blown away by a new dip he’d been served with them in a [...]

Roasted Curried Cauliflower

November 2nd, 2010

Roasted Curried Cauliflower

I have a real big problem with Indian food, not because it gave me horrible, debilitating food poisoning the last two days of my honeymoon in Africa, but because whenever I try to cook it at home it just outright refuses to taste like anything even close to authentic. Great Indian food, especially when it’s [...]

Green Tomato Chutney

November 1st, 2010

Green Tomato Chutney

Wow! Way to take completely inedible, well-past-their-prime tomatoes and turn them into a sweet and lovely concoction you’ll want to dump onto just about everything. To the husband, “everything” includes salads. Salads composed of green leaf lettuce and crumbled blue cheese. I do not endorse this. Instead, you should use this chutney as an excuse [...]

Maple Butter Baked Seckel Pears

October 28th, 2010

Maple Butter Baked Seckel Pears

Sometimes I don’t have anything particularly illuminating to say about a recipe but I really like the photos. I wouldn’t want to deprive you of some baby pear porn, so here goes.

Swiss Chard with Raisins and Almonds

October 20th, 2010

Swiss Chard with Raisins and Almonds

I’m particularly fond of any recipe with dried fruit and nuts (wonder why?), and this is one I’ve made multiple times. The husband finds the greens a bit bitter, which they are. But he seems particularly sensitive to bitterness whereas I handle it pretty well. Like it, even.

Peanut Butter Brown Rice Crispy Bars

October 17th, 2010

Peanut Butter Brown Rice Crispy Bars

It must be a really long time since I’ve made granola bars. Silly me, I thought I could just waltz right into my kitchen and whip some up. It took a lot of hunting around before I finally located the brown rice syrup at the back of my pantry, a woefully small amount left in [...]

Warm Butternut Squash and Chickpea Salad

October 16th, 2010

Warm Butternut Squash and Chickpea Salad

This is, to me, what cheesesteak pie is to the husband. It’s the best thing ever. Since I made it, I’ve been thinking about it nonstop. I want to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, I’m eating it right now. I think I may have to go out and buy another butternut squash [...]

Truffled Potato Gratin

September 27th, 2010

Truffled Potato Gratin

We may have to emphasize quantity over quality this week. I didn’t even know where to start. I have eight posts queued up and not one is expendable. For no justifiable reason I am panicked about this and maybe just maybe a bit scatterbrained. Also, I’m losing a lot of hair. Does that happen from [...]

Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos

September 10th, 2010

Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos

My first encounter with turkey legs was traumatic. Early on in our courtship, the husband and I took a trip to Disney World (yes, we were still basically children). And there was this place in the Magic Kingdom, in Frontierland, that sold smoked turkey legs. We figured they had to be amazing because all the obese [...]

Fennel-Dusted Chicken with Brown Butter and Capers

September 3rd, 2010

Fennel-Dusted Chicken with Brown Butter and Capers

This is the week of ridiculously quick and easy pan sauces. Like, requires-three-ingredients-takes-two-minutes quick and easy. It’s also the week of working through some of the recipes I tore out of my Gourmets over the years. Sigh. They really make me miss that magazine. There were so many dishes like this one and the salmon, [...]

Pan-Seared Salmon with Agrodolce Sauce

September 1st, 2010

Pan-Seared Salmon with Agrodolce Sauce

So you know how a few months ago I said I had sworn off pan-searing salmon because it stunk up my apartment for days? Well, I relented. For the first time in about three years, I did it. And it did stink up the house, but so what? There’s an easy remedy for a fishy-smelling [...]

Creamy Polenta and Fried Eggs with Goat Cheese

August 30th, 2010

Creamy Polenta and Fried Eggs with Goat Cheese

Number one, it is a frickin’ miracle that this post is even happening right now. How is it possible that every time the last four times I’ve managed to transfer pictures from my new camera to my computer I’ve forgotten how to do it and spent many many minutes, I might even say hours, trying to [...]

Braised Curried Cucumbers

August 23rd, 2010

Braised Curried Cucumbers

Ahh. It does feel good to be back. I just spent 17 days in Israel with no computer, no cell phone, and no kitchen, feeling completely cut off from my normal life in the best possible way. What I treasure most about vacations are the totally inane daily decisions that take on such importance. Should [...]

Creamed Corn Ice Cream

August 17th, 2010

Creamed Corn Ice Cream

Blah blah blah the weird ice cream flavors have to stop. They will stop when I am DEAD. I am not the only one interested in off-the-wall ice cream flavors. Not the only one by far. And this one wasn’t even my idea. A friend of mine emailed me to let me know that Momofuku [...]

Chicken with Peaches

July 30th, 2010

Chicken with Peaches

You know the peaches are good when there’s a whole beehive’s worth of bees buzzing around them. And you know you really want some of those peaches when you’re willing to just thrust your arms right into the danger zone. I’ve had more close encounters with bees this summer than I’d care to. Not that I’d [...]

Rustic Hummus

July 16th, 2010

Rustic Hummus

I’m always surprised when people tell me they’ve never made hummus. It’s such a good candidate for home cooks because the payoff is so great. Homemade hummus takes almost no time at all and is far superior to anything you can buy at the grocery store, not to mention much more economical. Plus, there are so many [...]

Lamb Chops and Beans with Georgian Cilantro Sauce

July 12th, 2010

Lamb Chops and Beans with Georgian Cilantro Sauce

The husband requested lamb chops for dinner, and I do everything he says. I wanted to make some sort of pesto to go with the lamb, and this one, a variation of what is apparently a mainstay of Georgian national cuisine, intrigued me. There was cilantro, parsley, apricots, walnuts, walnut oil…yum, yum, yum, yum, and [...]

Ginger and Lemon Roasted Chicken with Braised Fennel

July 6th, 2010

Ginger and Lemon Roasted Chicken with Braised Fennel

Well now that summer’s in full swing, an oven-roasted chicken is probably one of the last things you want to be making, right? In fact, I’ve probably picked the worst possible day to present you with this recipe, what with temperatures in these parts reaching record highs. You’d probably prefer a recipe for, say, beer-can [...]
