Pasta with Sun Gold Tomatoes

Matt and I didn’t get out act together in time to sign up for a CSA this summer. While there is certainly no shortage of great farmers markets in NYC, I’ve missed the weekly surprise veggies to plan our menu around. I think it’s ...

Pasta e Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)

It’s taking everything in my power to not go on a rant about this weather. I know, it’s winter. I’m just a total wimp. I seriously have no idea how I survived living in Chicago for 2 years. But let’s focus on the positive. ...

Cauliflower and Black Olive Gratin

I made such an effort last week to eat so healthily – fruits and vegetables galore – only to end up with a nasty cold this weekend. Perhaps the weeks before that of traveling and celebrating the holidays have finally caught up with me. ...

Broccoli Risotto

Risotto is kind of a go-to Friday night dinner for Matt and me. We always seem to have risotto rice, parmesan, and some kind of vegetable on hand. It’s the perfect cheap date-night dinner. Broccoli risotto was on the menu last Friday night. ...

Spaghetti with Roasted Sweet Corn and Cherry Tomatoes

The weather has been gorgeous here.  My appetite for large meals often wanes on hot days and I find myself craving something lighter and fresher.  Something more “seasonal.”  What could be more synonymous with Summer than fresh garden ...

Kale and Pasta Frittata

I’ve talked about how much I love frittatas as a way to use leftovers. This recipe is great for not only using leftovers or spare vegetables, but also to clean out the pantry. Whenever I notice there are several partial bags of different types ...

Spaghetti with Ramps and a Fried Egg

I look forward to ramp season every year, partly because it signifies the start of spring for me, and partly because they’re just so darn tasty. Their unique flavor, sort of like a cross between onion and garlic but with a peppery bite, ...

Fava Bean and Mushroom Farrotto

Formaggio is a dangerous place to shop without a list. I went on Friday looking for dinner ingredients, not knowing what I wanted to make yet. Matt and I were having a date night in and I wanted to make something fun and springy. I started by ...

Creamy White Bean Soup with Rosemary and Parmesan
