Pasta with Clams & Sausage

On Instagram a few weeks back, The Kitchn announced that they were creating a virtual cookbook club (ie: a book club, but with cookbooks...). I got really excited! I love cookbooks, trying new recipes, and getting inspired from different sources, but honestly sometimes I'm a little lazy about it. Frankly, a lot of times it's easier... Continue Reading →

Dill & Goat Cheese Risotto

I've had this idea for a risotto with dill and goat cheese to yield a dish with a rich and creamy texture like a normal risotto, but with a tangy, less heavy flavor. This is one of the best things about risotto in my opinion - it's one of those kitchen sink dishes that can... Continue Reading →

Lamb Meatballs with Minty Pesto

Here's our first guest chef post courtesy of Ally's mom! How this hasn't happened before is mind-boggling because she is an amazing cook. Ally was super lucky to grow up with a mom who made homemade dinner essentially every night of the week. As a typical ungrateful teenager, Ally used to not appreciate this as much as...

Maple & Mustard Pork with Shallots

We're baaaaack! Very sorry for the lack of recipes for the past few months! The dates of our blog absence directly correlate with the first and early second trimester of Ally's pregnancy with our first child!! While this is spectacular news, our blog did suffer for awhile there. Ally has been fairly sick for the first... Continue Reading →

Pork Tenderloin with Fig Chutney

Fall is so close we can almost taste it! It's September, college football debuted yesterday, the NFL regular season starts this coming week, and Halloween candy and pumpkin-flavored everything are starting to show up in stores. The bad news? It's still 90 degrees and sunny outside. The forecast is calling for 90+ degree days for the... Continue Reading →

Peach & Burrata Salad

As promised, here's the recipe for the gorgeous salad hidden in the corner of one of our pictures from Saturday night's Patatas Bravas with Super Garlic Aioli! Ally's cousin Emily is responsible for this dish, and we're hoping this is the first of many of her creations we'll share on here (you should see some of... Continue Reading →

Roasted Patatas Bravas

If you're anything like me, when eating at a Spanish tapas restaurant you can't pass up the quintessential tapas dish - patatas bravas. These little potatoes are a little spicy and a little tomato-y and just perfect dipped into a classic garlic aioli! We made a super garlicky aioli to go with ours, and it was delicious!...

White Wine Poached Shrimp

Selim has been perfecting this dish for months now. And by perfecting, I mean tweaking it every single time he makes it, with each iteration a smidge more delicious than the last, even though the very first attempt was excellent! It all started one time when we had a left-over half bottle of wine and... Continue Reading →

Basic Braised Beef Brisket

Sometimes writing a blog post is hard. Sometimes we just can't think of a lot to say. This is how the conversation about this recipe went... "Ally, not everything we make is so enlightened that I have a lot to say about it." If we're posting it, it tasted good - trust us.   Basic... Continue Reading →
