Sometimes Dinner Looks Like This

In late March and early April, there’s a limit to my cuisinal inspiration.

Brussels Sprouts Pasta

Lunchtime Flexibility – The ease I referenced in my last post has stayed with me in the kitchen this week.

Cooking it Fresh: Spring Radishes

It's challenging to create a recipe when you're faced with both ingredient and time restrictions.

Orzo with Broccoli Pesto

Weekday Lunch: Orzo with Broccoli Pesto – The most recent thief of my cooking motivation is the Fall time change.

Macaroni with Beans, Roasted Pumpkin, and Ham Hock

It’s Worth It – If you caught my recent post about Fleisher's you saw that after two years of vegetarianism, I've started to eat small amounts of meat again.

Tagliatelle with Rhubarb and Dill

Rhubarb Tagliatelle – Rhubarb never overstays its welcome at the farmers market:  it shows up, people flock around the bins, and then it's gone.

Acorn Squash Lasagna

Cooking it Fresh: Acorn Squash – I found many options, both online and in a few of my cookbooks, for my previously mentioned task of reviving acorn squash's reputation to be something I want to eat.

Cacio e Pepe

Need a dinner idea tonight? – How about Cacio e Pepe?

Sunday is for slow, rich dinners

A few Sundays ago, we were in the mood for a filling, warm, and frankly heavy Sunday dinner.

Late Summer Pasta

Uncomplicated – Yesterday demanded an easy meal.

Frankies Eggplant Marinara

Frankies Eggplant Marinara – In full disclosure, I've yet to go to Frankies Spuntino or Prime Meats, though I have been to Café Pedlar numerous times (which should count for something by association!).

Fiery Tomato Sauce

Fiery Tomato Sauce – I view a homemade tomato sauce as a blank slate.

Zucchini Galette

All Day Eating – We viewed the 4th of July as the official kick-off of our summer in Brooklyn.

Bittman’s Pasta with Potatoes

Minimalist Creativity – Our final CSA from the always wonderful Garden of Eve Farm resulted in….more potatoes!

Spaghetti with Ramps

Jumping on the Ramp Bandwagon – Until moving to Brooklyn, I was unaware of the relative insanity that surrounds the start of ramp season.

Soba with Pea Shoots, Mushrooms, & Leeks

Our First Spring Green – I was unaware of exactly how delicious and fleeting pea shoots were until they became a surprise addition in our Garden of Eve CSA share this past weekend.
