Crispy Duck Legs

When I shared my pictures and opinions of this recipe in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club Facebook group, my post started with, "Yall. Run and get some duck legs, so you can make the Crispy Duck Legs!" And now I'm telling anyone who reads this post the same! These are SO good. Honestly, I never thought... Continue Reading →

Classic Beef & Broccoli

Sticking with our Cookbook Club selection, we made another recipe from Grace Young's Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge. This month has been incredibly fun, even though we didn't join in until closer to the end of August. Ms. Young actually joined the club Facebook group and offered tips, suggestions, and kind comments on all of... Continue Reading →

Stir-Fried Ginger Broccoli

It's been awhile. We say this a lot. We obviously don't use this blog to make money or to showcase a business, so it's the first thing to fall by the wayside when we're busy. Currently, we have a baby, both work full-time, and are navigating a pandemic, so our blog has drifted to the... Continue Reading →

Berry Pavlova with Chocolate Drizzle

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a lot of things from us collectively. Lives, health, daily freedoms, jobs, money... Some of these things are obviously more important than others. One of the things that it has taken is simultaneously trivial and powerful - our celebrations. No one is dying for lack of a birthday party, but... Continue Reading →

The past week at work has been incredibly stressful, with a lot of confusion and worry. We actually are now on vacation for two... Continue Reading →

Sour Beets

Since having our baby girl, we realized that having friends and family over for dinner is a little more difficult than it once was. We love cooking and hosting, but given that she goes to bed in the 6 o'clock hour and lets be honest, most people are coming over to see her and not... Continue Reading →

Potatoes Vindaloo

Tonight's recipe is our second effort from Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi. Our first attempt was the super unique Eggplant & Mango Soba Noodles, which we loved! I love all things carbs, so a dish of not one, but two types of potatoes is right up my ally. We enjoyed cooking with curry leaves for the... Continue Reading →

Eggplant & Mango Soba Noodles

For Cookbook Club this month, we're cooking Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi. I love Ottolenghi... he's one of my favorite chefs to follow on social media and I find his recipes universally delicious! I was introduced to him several years back when my sister gave me the cookbook Jerusalem that he co-authored with Sami Tamimi. It... Continue Reading →
