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 ...

Slow Cooker Mushroom Farrotto with Gremolata

I’ve been experimenting with my slow cooker lately without much luck. I love the idea of slow cookers – that you can just set it, forget it, and dinner is just ready when you come home. And I love how slow cookers can make tough cuts of ...

Chicken and Cabbage Potstickers Spicy Soy and Sesame Dipping Sauce

Potstickers have been on my things-to-make-someday list for way too long. I’m obsessed with them, and I always go through the bags of frozen potstickers from Trader Joe’s in, like, 2 days. And because it is a huge project to get around ...

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. ...

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. ...
