Honey Roasted Carrots with Feta & Pistachio

Over the past few months, I've been seeing some amazing-looking roasted carrot recipes on Instagram, with some similar attributes. These by Noor Murad from a January Ottolenghi column, with mozzarella, maple, and hazelnuts. There was another with labneh and another with garlic yogurt. The combination of roasted carrots plus some sort of dairy, topped with... Continue Reading →

Ukrainian New Potatoes

Over the past few weeks, I, along with much of the rest of the world, have watched in horror as the Russian invasion of Ukraine has played out on the TV and internet right before my eyes. It's hard to know that you can't do much of anything other than bear witness and donate to... Continue Reading →

Miso e Cacio e Pepe

Circling back to September's Cookbook Club selection for this one. I knew I wanted to make this as soon as we opened the book, but just hadn't gotten to it yet. I'm glad we finally did! This was easy to bring together and used ingredients that we already had on hand. (Although we may keep... Continue Reading →

Afghan Chickpea Curry

This was our second attempt from May's Cookbook Club selection, Parwana, by Durkhanai Ayubi. The first, Afghan Lamb & Root Veggie Aush, was a big hit. We have about 80% of the recipes in this book earmarked to try. I was also very encouraged when I was picking this book up at the library and... Continue Reading →

Cauliflower in Turmeric Yogurt

Do we cook anything not inspired by the Cookbook Club anymore? Barely. February's selection is The Flavor Equation by Nik Sharma. The original recipe utilizes kefir and thickens it for the sauce. Sharma talks about how he likes the tangy, sour flavor of the kefir for this dish. When I read that, I thought that... Continue Reading →

Saffron Butternut Squash Soup

We're a little bit in love with January's Cookbook Club selection Falastin. We always bookmark some recipes at the beginning of the month when there's a new cookbook. This month, we bookmarked pretty much the entire book, and just might actually follow through. This soup was pretty easy to prepare and a great winter and... Continue Reading →

Seven Vegetable Couscous

Last night, the world in general, and American women in particular, lost an icon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Notorious RBG, died at the age of 87. The tiny legal legend was a champion for equal rights for women and the queen of dissent on the Supreme Court. The news of her death hit me harder... 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 →
