Tortellini, Chicken, and Arugula Salad + Weekly Menu

Tortellini, Chicken, and Arugula Salad + Weekly Menu

I’ve got a serious case of the Sundays. According to hubby, I’ve been “moody” all day…and I can’t really disagree. My dad is currently in surgery having his gallbladder removed and if that isn’t enough to being in a bad mood about, it hasn’t stopped raining since Friday night. And I HATE rain. I’m daydreaming…

Roasted Smashed Potatoes with White Balsamic Reduction

Roasted Smashed Potatoes with White Balsamic Reduction

This post was created in partnership with Alessi Foods. All opinions are our own. You may remember that we’re huge fans of Italy: both the place and the cuisine. We spent our honeymoon in Rome and the Amalfi Coast, then returned 7 years later to repeat the trip (see our photos here and here). The food is unbeatable, and much of our recipe inspiration comes from Italian flavors and approach. Balsamic reductions are typical Italy. If you’ve ever tasted one, you’ll know eye-popping taste: sweet on the front end, tart on the backend, and complex with both fruity and dark notes. It’s syrupy drizzle that’s created by boiling down vinegar until it becomes sweet and thick. Balsamic reductions can be used on literally anything: salads, roasted meats, fresh fruit, desserts, and cheese plates. The Alessi Foods line, descended from a Sicilian family business started in the 1900’s, has a new line of reductions made with only a handful of ingredients and without artificial thickeners. Alessi sent this white balsamic reduction and challenged us to be creative with our use of it. We came up with this: crispy and salty roasted smashed potatoes, paired with the fruity, nuanced sweet drizzle and […]

Garlicky Greens | Component Cooking

Garlicky Greens | Component Cooking

In cooking, full recipes are usually my last resort. I like improvisation behind cooking and challenging myself to do this completely changed the way I cooked. Sure, I share quite a bit of recipes but I’ve also tried to extend what I’m doing to include the idea of improv. My second book was a branch, […]

Weekend Reading, 3.26.17

Weekend Reading, 3.26.17

One of my favorite discoveries of 2017 so far (thanks to Twitter) is the work of Ashley C. Ford. I read and hear a lot about vulnerability these days, but it’s rare to encounter writing that’s as truly vulnerable, candid, and self-exploratory as Ashley’s. I never feel as though her essays are intended to teach me a lesson or prove…
