Recipe: Italian Deli Cookies

These are really similar to the cookies I used to get all the time in Italian bakeries / delis growing up in New York. I didn’t have a pastry bag so I simply rolled the dough into very small, even sized balls I would absolutely suggest using a pastry bag or spritz machine to make…

Recipe: Moco Loco

I saw and ate a lot of Hawaiian food back when I lived in Seattle but I never had the privilege of eating moco loco which is basically something like a trash plate style dish: hamburger patties with mushroom gravy served over rice with a fried egg on top. Feel free to make this vegetarian…

Recipe: Mushroom Stroganoff

My husband loves mushroom dishes lately and he also loves stroganoff (which I hate) so I figured it was worth it to give this a try and what do you know? He loved it. I find it kind of weird but it comes together easy enough with things I usually have on hand that it…

Weekly Lunches: #33

I have been dangerously lax about posting lunches this year and I’m not sure why. I’ve even had trouble keeping up with posting them on Instagram but I guess you can’t do all the things all the time? Either way there’s only a few more weeks left in the year (more like a dozen and…

Recipe: Breakfast Braid

Basically just another twist on making a breakfast sandwich of meat, cheese, and eggs. This is great if you want to make grab and go slices for breakfast and freeze them or if just want to look like you made a fancy version of breakfast for dinner. This is a super easy recipe that comes…

Recipe: Lemon and Raspberry Battenberg

Surprisingly this is both a very simple and a very difficult cake to make but I can assure you that guests will be impressed even if you deliver a technically imperfect masterpiece. Since its just one cake recipe all the work is in the assembly so if you’re like me you’ll probably make a mess…

Recipe: Chicken Satay Salad

This is a really delicious salad even though I’m someone who usually doesn’t like savory applications of peanut butter. This has just the right amount of heat and sweet that makes it delicious. My suggestion would be to prepare everything ahead of time except the rice noodle and just make these right before you serve…

Recipe: M&M Cookies

These are classic and easy and since I’m not actually a big fan of peanut butter I like these better than the peanut butter m&m cookies I previously made. This is a single bowl, no wait cookie that comes out absolutely perfect every time and is so simple you probably have everything in your house…

Recipe: Vegetable Biryani

This is not a difficult recipe but it is time consuming. The weird part is before I finished making this I was sure I’d never make this again but after eating it, it might just be worth the hassle. I will probably try other biryani configurations in the future but this dish will make you…

Recipe: Hazelnut Babka Rolls

These are just mini versions of babka but they’re soooooo good and using Nutella or any other hazlenut spread makes this a breeze. I added a brown sugar cinnamon topping just to bring them over the top (and make them look a little fancier).
