  Normally when you ask for an iced coffee at a cafe, you get a cup of coffee with ice cubes in it plus or minus milk. I was surprised when I asked for one in Germany while on vacation and I got an iced coffee with vanilla ice cream in it. Let me tell you, the ice cream made it so much more delicious! I especially like to add ice cream to my iced coffee on really hot days, […]

What is it about heat that has us craving salads? I live down the street from a salad place, and the first hot day of summer is always the same: lines down the block. I like salad as much as the next person but, sometimes, it’s nice to vary it up a little. Here’s an interesting salad using broccoli slaw, broccoli’s little brother and coleslaw’s cousin. (Does that also make coleslaw broccoli’s cousin?) Anyway, this recipe has multiple advantages: it’s a […]

I definitely felt very domesticated that day. You could easily switch up the spices to incorporate different flavors and use what you have on hand! Enchilada Sauce Ingredients 2 cans crushed or diced tomatoes 7oz can diced green chilies ½ onion, roughly chopped […]

miso-asparagus_960

I think that easy, delicious, complex side dishes are a genre that needs more exploring. For example, this dish! It takes very little work, uses ingredients that pack a ton of vibrant yet nuanced flavors, is salty and a little bit sweet, and is very healthy to boot. The base of the sauce is a miso-soy, garlic-ginger concoction, which basically just screams “ingredients that punch above their weight!” I use it here with asparagus but, really, it would go well […]

BroccoliWhitePizza1_960

The first time I tried a white pizza was with my husband at a pizza restaurant close to where we live in the city. We accidentally ordered it from the menu. Growing up, all we ever had was pizza with red sauce, so we both completely missed that this restaurant offered a few pizzas with white sauce! He was not a fan, but I loved it. My favorite topping on white pizza sauce is broccoli. They go so well together. To make white pizza sauce, […]

Polenta is one of those things that makes you wonder exactly what you’ve been doing with your life. OK, that’s an overstatement, but still, you can whip up this delicious, rich, corny and creamy side dish in about fifteen minutes with minimal work and expense. It’s only about three ingredients.
