Thanksgiving By the Numbers

Do you bake your Thanksgiving pie or do you buy it from the store? How big was your Thanksgiving bird? Is cranberry sauce a must at your dinner table? These little details are what make the Thanksgiving holiday so special – the traditions, the meal. Imagine a Thanksgiving without Aunt Patty’s stuffing, or that classic end-of-meal pumpkin nog. Around the world and around the nation, these traditions differ, but one thing is certain: we should all be grateful for what […]

Whether breakfast is the most important meal of the day or not is up for debate; I think we can all agree, however, that whatever it is, it ought to be delicious. This berry ganache is easy, sweet and healthy, and is a great addition to countless breakfast dishes. I made this with mini-waffles, but feel free to add it to cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, French toast or most anything else you can think. Berry Ganache Ingredients Equal parts: Strawberries Blueberries […]

The first time I tried tzatziki was drizzled over a falafel salad one day when I stumbled upon a seemingly popular food truck. It was so delicious as a salad dressing that it instantly became one of my favorite dressings to use on salads. You can use it over a variety of salads, but my favorite is still that cucumber and falafel salad. You can also use it in pitas or as a dip. Tzatziki Salad Dressing  Ingredients 1 cup […]

I was recently at a great Korean restaurant and had “maeun galbi jim” — braised short ribs in a spicy sweet sauce. It was rich and delicious with lots of unusual ingredients (turnips, chestnuts), as well as one of my favorites, gochujang (fermented chili paste). I had to recreate it myself. I found chestnuts at a farmer’s market and that was basically the hardest part. This was an incredibly easy dish to make with tons of deep flavors. The Magic […]

Peanut butter pie is one of my top favorite desserts, ever. It’s so quick and easy to make, too! Oreo cookie crumbs make a chocolatey crust, which is filled with a creamy, lightly sweetened peanut butter filling. The pie is frozen until ready to serve and then topped with crunchy chopped peanuts, drizzled with chocolate syrup and decorated with whipped cream. Make sure you remember to set it out about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve it to […]

The first time I tried pesto pizza, I was skeptical because tomato sauce is all I ever knew. I was surprised at how much I loved it and now I like to make it at home. You can also add chicken, artichokes, olives; the list goes on. The best part about this pizza is the fresh, homemade pesto sauce. I have a basil plant in my kitchen that grows like crazy, so these days, I’m making pesto constantly. This pesto […]

I’m not one for health food, but sneaking vegetables into classic dishes is a great way to get away with eating bacon-fried rice as a healthy dinner. Cauliflower is great as its own thing (roasted in the oven as a side dish), great in the place of meat (as in my cauliflower tacos), and great in the place of grains and starch (this recipe). Come to think of it, cauliflower is just plain great. Cauliflower: an unlikely superhero. Now that […]
