I don’t kid around when it comes to guacamole. I already have some fun variations on guacamole on the blog (see my festive pomegranate guacamole and kale guacamole).
If the state of my kitchen is any indication of my mental state (it is), I’m a mess. Cookbook launch anticipation is getting to me!
Queso! I adore it, but I always overdo it, and waddle out of Mexican restaurants with a belly full of cheese.
Yesterday was not my day. I made a very dumb, very expensive mistake yesterday, and I need you to tell me you have made some very dumb and expensive mistakes before, too.
This post is brought to you by eureka!® Organic Bread. I have a couple of friends who don’t love brunch.
I’ve been meaning to tell you about these blondies for a long time now. They’re from my friend Sarah Kieffer’s book, The Vanilla Bean Baking Book.
I opened my inbox in Madrid a few days ago to discover the best email subject line—Love Real Food in Anthropologie!
Hello from Kansas City! I’m glad to be home with my Cookie girl. We have a lot of snuggles to catch up on.
I know, this recipe won’t appeal to everyone. If you appreciate spicy jalapeños and keep a bottle of hot sauce on your table (Cholula forever)—this recipe is for you, and definitely for me.
Hello from Morocco! I am actually writing this from a plane over the Atlantic, on my way to Madrid and then Marrakech.
Have you ever ordered broccolini on a pizza? (No.) Is that a ridiculous question? (Probably.) I’m always on the hunt for interesting veggie pizzas, so I’ve sampled no less than three broccolini pizzas at brick-oven pizzerias.
This post is brought to you by ALDI. Hello, it’s Kate of two weeks’ past. I wrote this post in advance of my vacation in Morocco.
I’m slowly working my way through the veggie options at the sushi restaurant that opened near me. The other day, I ordered a side salad to accompany my sushi.
This strawberry salsa recipe has been haunting me since I spied it in Andrea Bemis’ new cookbook, Dishing Up the Dirt.
I hope you are soaking up the sunshine today. Since St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone, I thought I’d offer some redeeming green recipes.
This post is brought to you by Newman’s Own. After a few glorious days of sunshine and sleeveless-shirt weather, it snowed again yesterday.
I have a challenge for you (and me) today. I challenge us all to start making a giant fresh salad on Sundays, so we can eat salad all week long.
This post is brought to you by ALDI. Have you ever tried roasting your mushrooms? I discovered during the making of my cookbook that roasting not-so-fancy mushrooms condenses their flavors into gourmet territory.
Do you ever sit down to write someone a thoughtful note and freeze? I do, all the time. I want to get it just right and the words just don’t come.
Eeep! My cookbook arrived yesterday, all wrapped up in a pretty green ribbon. I’m sitting next to it now.
