Christmas is a mere 4 days away and this Jewish girl could not be more excited! Our holiday traditions include a bagel brunch for breakfast, a matinée with the kids (this year the chosen flick is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), and then an early dinner out at our favorite Chinese restaurant. We may even throw in a family game night. Traditiooooooon, tradition! It's the kind of lazy, low key day that makes me want to skip...
So I did this thing where I made cinnamon pate a choux and filled it with tiramisu pastry cream. It's super fun, screams holiday, and is about to be gone because I can't stop eating them. And why should I? Tiramisu cream puffs are a dream come true -- light, flavorful, and far easier to make than you might expect. (Read on! I'm sharing my tips!) If I'm being perfectly honest, tiramisu ranks high on the...
Homemade biscuits with white cheddar and sage and topped with rye and drizzled with sweet honey and butter. They are actual heaven and rise SKY HIGH. Your new favorite biscuit recipe! I'm loosely southern. Meaning that while I'm from Florida, which is technically the south, if you ask anyone from Georgia, Alabama, or Louisiana if us Floridians are included in the roundup of southern states, they'll likely roll their eyes then throw out a comment about...
Drunken braised short ribs with rye. Let that sink in for a minute. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? This recipe is the perfect marriage between all things fall and winter that I simply cannot live without. And I'm fairly certain you need to try it to believe it. First, ain't no time like sweater weather to cozy up with a big plate of short ribs. Or a bowl, if you're into eating it with...
There is something so magical about the holiday season, that no matter how frustrating it can be to buy and wrap a hundred presents, or how traffic suddenly increases by 100x, or how the days grow shorter, the promise of spending the holidays wrapped around a table with loved ones can suddenly uplift and renew even the grumpiest of stooges. That's what this apricot glazed chicken does for me. It reminds me that the most...
I walked into Starbucks this morning because - to my horror - I was out of iced coffee. I don't usually let it get to this point, but with Thanksgiving barely behind us, and having to play catch up on all the work I let slide over the long holiday weekend, I somehow forgot to stock up on my kryptonite. Needless to say, I was not at my finest this morning. But no matter I...
Bourbon-whipped butternut squash mash with crispy sage and parmesan. Let that sink in for a good minute or two. This is one of those recipes that as soon as I made it, I gobbled it up, got really angry that it was gone, and immediately went to the store the next day to buy more ingredients and make it again. Not a joke, not an exaggeration. In fact, I am going to make a bold...
Very important question: do you own a waffle maker? If yes, hooray! I got your day-after-Thanksgiving brunch figured out. If no, I think we know what you're asking Santa for this year, am I right? Because GUYS, hello, just look at these cornbread stuffing waffles! They're crispy and light and airy at the same time and they're packed with so much flavor. And did I mention they're made from cornbread stuffing? Like actual leftover stuffing from your...
Nothing beats moist, decadent homemade chocolate cupcakes with espresso buttercream. In fact, I bet you'll find yourself eating the espresso buttercream frosting with a spoon! Alright, let's get one thing straight: these homemade chocolate cupcakes are great and all, but the star of the show is the over-the-top, unbelievably delicious espresso buttercream. Grab your spoons, friends, 'cause this one you can eat straight from the bowl. So when is a good time to make these...
Why am I calling this "dinner party chicken?" Because everyone hates serving 'just chicken' when they're entertaining! I promise, though, that no one will complain if you put this down in front of a crowd of hungry guests. It's chicken, but elevated. The magic comes from those briny, salty, sweet additions. It's seriously addictive. Actually, maybe I should call this 'crack chicken." I'm talking a seemingly overwhelming amount o shallots, olives, and most importantly, grapes. But...
