  • fig gorgonzola walnut honey pizza

    fig gorgonzola walnut honey pizza

    Greetings! This recipe is based on one I’ve made a few times over the last two decades. It’s originally from a book called Vegetarian Pizza, by James McNair. The only difference is I used a different recipe for the dough. Every time I made this in the past though, I’ve always used dried figs; I…

  • garlic rolls

    garlic rolls

    Greetings! I know garlic confit sounds a little fancy, but it’s basically slow cooking a bunch of peeled garlic cloves in oil in a 200 degree F. oven to bring out their sweetness as well as make them soft and spreadable. This takes about 2 hours in the oven, though, so if you’d rather not,…

  • chicken and waffles

    chicken and waffles

    You may or may not notice that this is a recipe is from a blog post I did several years ago. For about a year, I’ve been wanting to do spot checks on my blog posts to make sure the recipes were not only written correctly, but also whether I’d make any changes to them.…

  • chicken adobo

    chicken adobo

    Chicken Adobo. It’s arguably the National Dish of the Philippines. While there is agreement of what the main ingredients are–chicken, vinegar, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic, bay leaves–there are a ton of different recipes and variations to choose from. How do you make your chicken adobo? I decided to make mine by initially browning it…

  • The Great Meat Imposter: Unripe Jackfruit

    The Great Meat Imposter: Unripe Jackfruit

    I’m not usually a fan of vegan or vegetarian dishes that try to mimic meat dishes. But this is an exception. This I had to try! Over the years, I’ve noticed more and more posts of unripe jackfruit in recipes claiming it is just like pulled pork. I had to see for myself. It’s definitely grown…

  • butternut squash galette

    One Word: Flakey! By the way, is it “flakey” or “flaky”? I’m going with flakey. If you like a flakey crust recipe, and you don’t mind the “rusticity” of a galette, then this recipe from Epicurious is for you! Autumn roasting of fruit continues! That’s right, butternut squash is technically a fruit. Crazy, huh? And yes,…

  • summer squash, corn and chiles over rice

    summer squash, corn and chiles over rice

    Summer Squash is abundant in our area, and since Ben worked the local farmer’s market, the other vendors gave him a whole bunch as barter for Ben’s pizza! But other than making zucchini bread, which we will still need to do, Ben cooked one of his typical meals for us tonight, which was awesome! This…

  • Slow Cooker Chicken, Sausage, and White Bean Chili

    Slow Cooker Chicken, Sausage, and White Bean Chili

    This is a new post of something I’ve posted before. I made it this morning because it’s perfect to come home to after a busy day when you don’t feel like cooking, but want something that is hearty and easy to serve right away. This is a recipe that I really equate with fall, but…

  • Kari Ayam (Chicken Curry)

    Kari Ayam (Chicken Curry)

    Kari ayam is Indonesian Chicken Curry. I’m not going to pretend that I grew up eating this, or that I am very familiar with Indonesian recipes or ingredients, but since I have made this a few times, I find that it is very satisfying, and wanted to include it here. In fact, I dare say that this…
