christmas cookery

December 22, 2012

I'm plowing ahead with menu-planning this year, and I've come up with too many things to make for 2 meals. I've been asked to contribute just one side dish and dessert, which is actually harder than just planning a whole meal because I want them to be THE BEST and there are so many great options to choose from:

thanksgiving 2012

November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I took a different approach to Thanksgiving. I didn’t host anything, I barely made plans at all and I decided that if I did cook, I wouldn’t be too ambitious about it. As you can see from year’s past, (2010, 2011) I tend to go overboard on planning and cooking. There […]

Adventures in Ice Cream Making

May 25, 2012

1

I was gifted an ice cream maker earlier this week, right in time for Memorial Day Weekend and the official start of summer. I was so excited to start mixing and churning, but I didn’t really know which recipe to start with, so I turned to the ice cream expert in my family, my lovely […]

We are about three weeks behind on our New Roots Organics bin and in serious danger of our veggies go to waste. We’ve had to let go of a bunch of greens and our strawberries have to be eaten tonight or ELSE. I’ve been so busy lately (more on that later) that our weekly menu […]

Holiday Cookie Extravaganza

December 8, 2011

0

I spent all of last Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights covered in flour and overly hot thanks to our ambitious plan to bake 5 different kinds of holiday cookies and fudge. Not only did we endeavor to make six kinds of baked goods, but we also doubled each recipe – resulting in hundreds of cookies […]

thanksgiving menu-planning

November 22, 2011

This year, I’m hosting Thanksgiving by myself. Sure, my guests are responsible for bringing dishes to round out the menu, but to be completely honest, sometimes I don’t like eating other people’s food. That’s why Heather and I took on the entire spread last year, and probably why I started out making only 3 dishes […]

recipes of the week

There is an absurd amount of food in our refrigerator right now. On Monday we hosted the EPIP Seattle steering committee for a potluck in which we made Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork  Tacos  and a fresh spinach and feta salad. The guests heeded my plea to bring something other than just wine or a dessert […]

Check out these awesome recipes that we’ve made this week! Leek Carbonara Pasta – so yummy. I don’t like eggs but I like what eggs can do to pasta. Plus, there’s bacon. This is NOT the recipe that we used – ours came from Martha Stewart’s Everyday Living but those recipes never seem to end […]

LEVerage, a dinner party (and tour of SEA)

October 11, 2011

0

In honor of my philanthro-friend and fellow EPIP Board member Edgar’s visit to Seattle, we threw him a dinner party of epic proportions and leveraged all of our daily deals in order to do so. This was particularly appropriate because Edgar also just launched his own consulting firm, Leverage Philanthropic Partners, so it all tied […]

Some delicious things have been cooked up in our kitchen recently. I’ll add them over on my recipe page shortly. Sriacha-Baked Salmon and Kale Wraps with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce – we used the gypsy peppers that arrived in our CSA but I don’t think it made too much of a difference. Always good to […]

fall flavors + orange food

I am a summer baby and I’m pretty sure that’s why the thought of having to stop eating asparagus and start eating squash kind of sends me into the depths of culinary despair. I’ve had a hard time learning to like squash, and trust me, I’ve tried. I can KIND OF get excited about butternut […]

Friends, meet Pinterest, my latest addiction. I’m not entirely sure how I stumbled upon it, but I find it highly superior to Polyvore, which is focused on fashion trends. Here’s how it works: You sign up and install a little link on your bookmarks bar. Whenever you see something you like or that inspires you, […]

this is delicious: summer corn chowder with bacon

August 24, 2011

If you’re faced with the “problem” of having just a little bit of everything and a whole lot of corn in  your refrigerator, do as I did and make your own “souped up” (get it?!) version of this corn chowder. Summer Corn Chowder with Bacon I discovered this recipe as part of my Iron Chef: […]

how to throw your own Iron Chef party!

August 23, 2011

Here’s my advice if you’d like to throw your own Iron Chef Party – and you should! It was SO much fun. Pick your opponent, choose a date, and craft your guest list! Obviously we had a built-in rivalry as roommates, but you should definitely make sure to battle against someone who you know is […]

Iron Chef: Battle Oats!

August 23, 2011

Sunday was the first in what I imagine will be a series of cooking showdowns between my roommate Heather and I. We hosted an “Iron Chef” competition (three dishes to make and three hours to cook) and were joined by a dozen of our friends who were eager to judge. We solicited suggestions for the […]

asparagus, a dozen ways

June 14, 2011

To my delight, asparagus has appeared in our New Roots Organics bin nearly every week for the past two months. The presence of asparagus is just about the ONLY thing that makes it feel like Spring in Seattle – it’s still freezing and my new mantra is “it’s never nice until after the 4th… it’s […]

last days of summer recipe dump

September 17, 2010

As always, good things are coming out of our kitchen with all the end-of-summer produce coming through our New Roots Organics box. I made Smitten Kitchen’s peach shortbread for a rainy BBQ at Kendall and Doug’s, in honor of her parents being in town. I think I inadvertently added an extra quarter cup of flour, […]

It’s a busy week and I had no idea how I was going to make it through my New Roots Organics bin before I leave for CO on Saturday. I had some ground beef that I wanted to use, and this woman at the grocery store was going ON AND ON about stuffed peppers, so […]
