Lazy Sushi Bowls (a.k.a. Scattered Sushi) | Make Ahead Mondays

I’m really excited about today’s post. Why? It’s another one of those things I’ve been making for years and I’m just getting around to sharing it with you. I always feel a mixture of thrill and guilt when I share these perennial favourites. Thrill because I’m giving you something we love so much and guilt [Read On]

The Unsophisticated (Chilled Two-Wine Spritzer)

A little housekeeping: Unfortunately, I got a little education this week when I learned about Scrapers. Am I the last person alive to  hear about these folks? What they do -in a nutshell- is steal the RSS feed from a blog and republish it for whatever reasons they have to doing so (getting hits, pilfering [Read On]

Spinach and Garlic Alfredo Pizza (With or Without Onions and Anchovies)

Monday, I declared this week to be Pizza Week. Today is the first pizza in the series. All of these pizzas will use the No-Knead Whole-Wheat Semolina Pizza Dough recipe I posted Monday. As much as I love a good, plain old pepperoni and cheese pizza, there is something about pizza that makes me wildly [Read On]

Kimchi Pancake (Kimchijeon)

Back in the day -when I worked early hours as a prep cook and late nights as a slinger of pub grub- I wondered more than once how I’d ever find true love when I always smelled like garlic, onions and a fryolater. It was a valid concern folks… I remember one particularly busy week [Read On]

Cream Puffs and Profiteroles | Make Ahead Mondays

  My husband turned eleventy one on Saturday. Okay, not really… He turned forty six, but to hear the guy talk, he sounds like he thinks he’s butter scraped over too much bread.  Don’t feel too badly for him, though. He is the only person I’ve ever known in my life who -when asked how [Read On]

Whole Wheat Popovers with Greek Yogurt Creme and Strawberries

Two days ago, I walked into a doctor’s office and paid them to shoot lasers into my eyes. I felt very Jetsons… very Star Trek… very Galaxy Quest. I half expected Dr. Crusher to walk into the room to scan me. My sole disappointment was the utter lack of sound effects accompanying the laser eye [Read On]

Ninfa’s Green Sauce (Bonus Recipe Hack)

Full disclosure: I’ve spent some time in Houston but I’ve never been to Ninfa’s. I’m not even sure I’m pronouncing the name properly. Is it NIN-fahz? NEEN-fahz? neen-FAHZ? However you say it, though, I now want to eat there desperately because if this sauce is a sign of what they have to offer… Well, let’s [Read On]

Baked Maple Oatmeal

I know I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m not a breakfast person. I maintain that with one big exception. See that bowl up there? That’s the exception. That is baked oatmeal. I had a big time Goldilocks complex about oatmeal, and not being someone who eats until ten-thirty/eleven-ish each day, I never really felt [Read On]
