Quarantine Cooking: Savory Dutch Baby

Like so many others, we’ve been spending our time in quarantine cooking up a storm. I mean, what the hell else are we going to do, exercise? Hahahahahahahaha. Kathleen has really used this quarantine to take her cooking to the next level. We’ll be sharing her successes here on this site, as soon as I …

An Italian Feast of Epic Proportion

The last week or so has been particularly stressful. People deal with stress in different ways—some people (i.e., weirdos) exercise, some people throw themselves into their creative outlets, and some people, like us, eat. And when I say eat, I mean consume a meal of such magnitude, such grandiosity, and such epic deliciousness, it can’t …

Recipe: Gnocchi with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce

For some reason, up until last year, I’d lived my life without ever eating gnocchi. I don’t know exactly why this is. I’ve always been a picky eater, this is true, but gnocchi should have been right up my starchy, carby alley. Never fear though, I’ve discovered the joys of gnocchi, if late, and am …

Recipe: How to Make Classic Pasta Carbonara

Over on our Recipes Page, we just added a page for probably my favorite category of food, Pasta and Rice. And what better first recipe to post on this new page than my favorite pasta dish of all-time, classic Roman pasta carbonara! It’s very possible you’ve never tasted a good carbonara, because so many restaurants …

Recipe: Gravy, or Is It Tomato Sauce?

Kathleen’s family, having strong Italian-American roots, has equally strong views regarding the naming of tomato sauce. To them, this classic Italian sauce is always called gravy. No matter what you call it, there’s no doubt that a good recipe for this Italian staple is a must-have. There are no shortage of gravy recipes, from the …

A Recipe for A Vegetable Dish I Don’t Hate

Over on our Recipes Page, I just did the unthinkable: I posted a recipe for an exclusively vegetable dish. What the hell’s gotten into me? My struggle with vegetables is well-documented among my friends and family. Despite loving food and wanting to experience a wide range of cuisines, I’ve had an aversion to veggies for …

Stop Ordering Crab Rangoon and Make These Spicy Crab Dip Eggrolls Instead

We’re on something of a roll with homemade eggroll appetizers (pardon the pun). A couple weeks ago, we posted a recipe for our take on a BBQ pork-filled eggroll. We enjoyed that dish so much, we set our minds to coming up with more tasty things we could stuff in wonton wrappers. We came up …

Lamb Shawarma Burgers

Last weekend, we took a slightly different approach to the traditional Memorial Day cookout. Tired of the same old burgers, we experimented with some new flavors, with spectacular results! Our first entry on our Meats Page, these herbaceous, spicy Lamb Shawarma Burgers will zest up any occasion. And don’t forget to top them with our …

Spice Up Your Memorial Day Party With The Perfect Deviled Eggs

My love affair with deviled eggs is a recent one. I first had a restaurant version with a lobster filling which was exceptional. A few weeks later, my uncle made a batch for a family picnic. Now, though, I’ve had a version to top them all. Knowing my taste, Kathleen set out to make a …
