Cavatappi e Salami alla Vodka

Cavatappi e Salami alla Vodka

When asked where I grew up, I almost always answer, “New York”. The reality is that I grew up 15 minutes (95 minutes with traffic) out of the city in Bergen County, New Jersey. For all the reasons, NJ just has a bad rap and

Dippy Eggs & Spicy Feta Provolone Soldiers

I can’t recall where I first learned about toast soldiers for dipping into soft boiled eggs but I remember thinking it was genius. My family did it a bit differently. Instead of boring plain toast, my mother would make a grilled cheese of sorts and 

Walnut Brie Mac & Cheese

Walnut Brie Mac & Cheese

I have a huge soft spot for Kraft® Macaroni & Cheese. Yes, the dirty hooker of the mac & cheese world. I’m not ashamed. I easily go through a box by myself. Not sure why they started putting the “lighter” version instructions on there. Pffftttt,

We’ve got a “Big Boy” tomato plant in my front yard. We built it a nice cage thing with some sticks and twine. It’s super cute and it just sprouted some flowers. I obviously don’t know my gardening lingo. Tas totally fell on it, by

Matboucha Shakshuka en Cocotte

Is it french? Is it Middle Eastern? Is it delicious? Is it easy? Can you (kind of) make it ahead? Will you like it? Are you obsessed with Shakshuka yet? Yes. To all the things. Plenty of times have I had Oeufs en Cocotte at 

Harissa Chimichurri Skirt Steak

Harissa Chimichurri Skirt Steak

As I was throwing dinner together I realized that this is a damn good recipe. So I shot a few photos before this baby got cold. I cook my steaks sous vide. It’s life changing. This skirt steak “cooked” for 6 hours and was fork
