Sweet + Savory Fall Favorites


I’ve been digging into the blog archives and baking + cooking a lot of my sweet + savory fall favorites! I wanted to share a quick collection with you here. There are soooo many more (more pumpkin stuff, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin gnocchi, scones, etc etc etc)…but I narrowed it down to a reasonable list for you. Will this become a…

Lemony Brussels Sprout Pignoli Pizza


Man oh MAN have I had some pizza cravings lately. And this combination of flavors has been my current go-to: bright bursts of lemon zest, slightly charred and crispy Brussels sprouts, bitter radicchio and toasted bits of pignolis (aka Diamond of California pine nuts). Sometimes I’ll add prosciutto (which is heaven) and other times sun-dried Kalamata olives (which I can’t…

Portuguese Soup With Crispy Prosciutto + Manchego Toast


I wanted to create a soup that was Caldo Verde adjacent, with potatoes and kale and sausage, but I wanted (NEEDED) more of a clear soup rather than creamy. So I set out to use all of the key Caldo Verde players: Portuguese sausage (I offer several substitutions below if you can’t find it), loads of kale and potatoes. Then thoughts…

Italian Sausage + Burrata Penne Pasta


This penne pasta comes together so quickly that it could easily be a mid-week, just-got-home-from-work dinner. But it also has a ton of Sunday supper potential. This sauce, sitting on the stove, going low and slow and filling the house with lots of warm basil and tomato smells. Yes…that’s the kind of Sunday I want to have. This penne pasta…

Burrata Caprese Burgers With Lemon Basil Aïoli


Holy moly. These Caprese burgers. Like a late summer farmer’s market collided with your local Italian butcher. All the best summer flavors (heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil leaves), a thick meaty-burger fortified with egg yolk and finely grated parmesan, an oozy layer of burrata and a bright pop of flavor from the lemon-basil aïoli. And the bacon rounds, let’s not…

Breakfast Nachos


We take our nacho game very seriously around here. We eat them for dinner, as a snack…basically any time we have an excuse to shove them in our mouths. Last summer we were lounging around and Gavin wanted nachos. I said ‘everyone, stop what you’re doing and follow me into the kitchen.’ I told them I would be oh-so-proud if…

Easy Peasy Labneh


The thought of making cheese never entered my mind. In fact, making this type of cheese (labneh) seems somewhat fraudulent…like it really isn’t cheese…but it is…and it’s so amazingly luscious and delicious you will never not (love a double negative) have it in your fridge. At all times. It’s true, I like to dazzle people with food. I like it to…

The lightness and joy that has descended upon our home is nothing short of bliss. Pure, peaceful, bliss. We’re going to bed late and sleeping in. We’re eating quesadillas, playing legos in the living…
