• Braised Short Rib Pasta

    By Thursday, September 17, 2015 0 Permalink

    Braised meat is bomb. There is nothing more tender or better at serving up saucy goodness. But, I don't want to focus on what you guys already know, so let's talk about (braised) meat sauce. We're all familiar with Bolognese and this recipe is really a slightly more complex variation of that classic, at least ...

  • Quinoa Fruit Salad with Greek Yogurt

    Quinoa has been crazy trendy over the last few years to the point where it might be a tad overexposed. Like Taylor Swift overexposed. It's everywhere, from salads, to muffins, to the crust on pan-fried scallops. You can't escape it. You might say you can't...shake it off...haha. But like Taylor Swift, quinoa is surprisingly likable.Sure, haters ...

    Carbonara is one of those pasta dishes (like lasagna) that everyone thinks is sexy as hell but nobody really makes at home. It's a buzz word for deliciousness that we (incorrectly) assume is beyond our modest culinary skills. Foolishness!

    Summer is still weeks away but as Julia has mentioned a few times we are DEEP into the season for warm-weather eats. It's the season for cold beer, burgers, hot dogs, potato salad. You know, all that tasty baseball game friendly food. But sometimes you wanna class things up a bit with a little cold ...
