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 →

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 →

Spicy Elotes

Our friend Amanda texted yesterday and asked if we had a good street corn recipe. We've never made it before, but I remembered seeing a recipe in one of our cookbooks. I broke it out for her, but realized that we had all the needed ingredients on hand ourselves (key since we're still trying to... Continue Reading →

Berry Lime Popsicles

Happy Fourth of July! I don't know about y'all but summer is definitely in full swing here. It was 92 degrees at 10am this morning! Even though it doesn't feel like summer, since we can't do many of the summery things we would normally be doing, the heat certainly reminds us of the season. One... 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 →

Corn Cacio e Pepe

Happy Mac n Cheese Day! When we realized that was today, we couldn't pass up the opportunity! We love mac n cheese around here - from the classic Kraft blue box to the most upscale restaurant variation. The dish we made tonight falls somewhere in the middle. The pasta did come from a box -...

Summer Mac n Cheese

There are some dishes that just scream a certain season to me. A big pot of chili or anything involving a gourd in the fall. Hearty, meat-heavy dishes that are roasted or stewed or crockpot-ed in the winter. But summer... Probably the most seasonally iconic dishes are summer ones! There are just so many -...

Minty Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad

I, like most other people I know, love a juicy summer watermelon. It is just so refreshing and delicious! I remember that my grandfather always used to (and probably still does) put salt on his watermelon, which I thought was absolutely crazy. I thought that salt would ruin the sweet taste. Through the years, I've... Continue Reading →
