Fig Chutney (Updated)

8/28/22 Update: Our text from our original post/recipe is below, but the recipe is the updated version. We've made this one a few times this summer - it is fig season after all - and want to update the recipe just a smidge for how we're currently enjoying it. Plus new pictures! =========================================================== Ok y’all.... Continue Reading →

Elotes Italianos

Got excited to make some elotes tonight, as part of our Fourth of July weekend grilling, but turns out we didn't have the cotija in the fridge like we thought. Our improvisation led to making this corn in the style of Mexican street corn, but with the flavors of Italy. Turned out just good enough... Continue Reading →

Spicy Pasta alla Norma with Sausage

We're definitely adding Joshua McFadden's Six Seasons to our list of favorite cookbooks. And this recipe may just be our favorite one (so far) from there! We've been getting these gorgeous fairy-tale eggplants from our Farm Share this summer and, not being super experienced eggplant-ers, have been trying new ways to enjoy them. Not only...

Garlic Scape Compound Butter

Farmer's market season is here! We finally have joined a Farm Share, after wanting to for years. (See our farm's explanation for those not familiar with the concept.) We're hoping that this will help us to eat more locally grown and seasonal produce, as well as prompt us to try new items that we don't... Continue Reading →

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 →

Corn Risotto

For the few people out there who read our blog with any regularity, you already know that I love risotto. I love carbs in general, and the adaptability of risotto specifically. We've experimented with taking risotto in a lot of different directions before (see our other risotto recipes), but this summer-y version is a new... Continue Reading →

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The unofficial end of summer has arrived. You'd be hard-pressed to know that here though, given that it's going to be sunny and in the upper 80s. We're spending our weekend at "The Land" as we call it - in rural Amherst County. While we still have the last remnants of... Continue Reading →

Lemon Blueberry Skillet Cake

Today marks my first full week of being home with the baby on maternity leave alone and Selim's first week being back at work. I'm learning that neither is easy. Selim has to get up early, after having frequently interrupted sleep all night, go to work all day, and be separated from this little baby... Continue Reading →

Apple Cinnamon Galette

It's well documented on this blog (and if you know me in real life...) that I don't like/am mildly terrified of baking. But every fall, like clockwork, I feel the need to bake something with apples in it. It's a personal rite of fall passage, along with my need to decorate with tiny gourds, take... Continue Reading →

Fig Chutney

Ok y'all. Remember that fig chutney that we made last weekend to go on top of some roast pork (Pork Tenderloin with Fig Chutney)? We've been talking about it all week. It was that good! So good that we felt the need to make it again and share it as a standalone recipe. The super... Continue Reading →
