Fried Eggs with Crispy Kale and Ramps

We’re nearing the end of the all-too-brief ramp season here on the East Coast. So far, I’ve been trying to get the most out of ramp availability this spring. In April I taught two classes on Asian cooking using seasonal ingredients and managed to get a bunch of students addicted to these delicious wild leeks. [...]

Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I’ve been making smoothies non-stop these past few weeks. Maybe it’s in anticipation of all the ripe late spring and summer fruits that will soon be in the markets. But lately my breakfasts have been looking more like the smoothie above instead of this or this. And that’s a very [...]

Coconut Quinoa Granola

This coconut quinoa granola was supposed to have been posted last week. Then I ate it all before I had a chance to take any photos. You’ve been warned. It’s that addictive.

I go through periods in which I would eat the same thing every single morning for 3 to 4 months: oatmeal with dried cranberries, toast with raspberry preserves, almond croissants, Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, Barbara’s [...]

Strawberry Rhubarb Buckle

I can thank my first  job out of culinary school for introducing me to how wonderful strawberries and rhubarb can be together. The job was at an catering company in Manhattan that specialized in large-scale events. I worked in the pastry department, which meant that we could spend an entire day creating hundreds of portions [...]

The Best Orange Bread You’ll Ever Have

I’ve made orange bread countless times before but can’t remember coming across a recipe as great as this one, from James Beard’s American Cookery. First of all, who doesn’t like a bread that perfumes their kitchen with a light citrus scent? Second and more importantly, the texture is pretty incredible, somewhere between sliced sandwich bread and [...]
