This braided pesto bread tastes like summer! It's made with an easy homemade pesto, and I pinky promise it's easier to braid this loaf than you'd think! Braided pesto bread is everything that is right in the world. It's cheese, pesto, and bread. I KNOW. I'm not sure what else it could do to win you over short of baking itself, but if you too are longing for summer to never ever ever end, this one's...
Light and vibrant weeknight pasta with pancetta and peas gets jazzed up with fresh mint and shiitake mushrooms. The perfect spring or summer pasta recipe, and it cooks up in less than a half hour! The history behind this spring pasta favorite runs deep. It's the dish I first served to my now best friend and her husband when they came over to our home for our first co-family dinner party. I knew my friend's husband was...
The crispiest grilled chicken wings I've ever made are cooked at 450 F for 25-30 minutes on a Traeger smoker. You'll never fry them again! My husband and I have been loving our Traeger smoker - loving. The best thing we've cooked up so far? For me, it's these crispy grilled chicken wings. The skin is earth shatteringly crispy. How to make crispy grilled chicken wingsCould you cook these low and slow on a smoker? Certainly....
Asian stuffed peppers are gluten free, dairy free, and Whole30, and they also happen to be simple and quick enough to prep on a weeknight after a busy day at work! I remember very distinctly having the idea for these Asian stuffed peppers and deciding ahead of time that I was going to love them. After all, what's not to like about what is essentially dumpling filling without the guilt of frying? On top of being healthy,...
These mini blueberry streusel muffins are super moist thanks to the combination of butter, oil, and Greek yogurt. Who knew mini blueberry muffins could taste this good?! My absolute favorite blueberry muffins (like, ever) are from this small restaurant in New Canaan, CT called Rosie. They are massive, a gift in and of itself, and if you go first thing in the morning (we always do), you are rewarded with muffins that are fresh-from-the-oven and ever so...
Impossibly creamy cheesecake with chocolate chip cookie crust and dulce de leche swirls. Let me start by saying this: my husband and I are bonafide cheesecake snobs. We've eaten the best of the best in NYC (and no, it is not Junior's), and tear down every which way that a cheesecake falls flat or doesn't make the cut. So believe me when I claim this dulce de leche cheesecake to be damn near perfect. I...
Flaky puff pastry with spinach and feta, baked and topped with everything bagel seasoning. The perfect appetizer! All hail these mighty Israeli cheese bourekas! I'm not kidding when I say these are like little crack-filled pillows and highly addictive. Something about the salty cheese, crunchy puff pastry, and sprinkling of everything bagel seasoning on top just screams, "eat me!" and they disappear lightning fast! Are these cuties difficult to make? Nope! Do they take time? Sadly, yes. But...
Roasted vegetable salad of potatoes, brussels sprouts, and crisp haricots verts come together to form the perfect vegan and Whole30 salad with a homemade shallot dressing that will blow you away. I wouldn't say I go out of my way to make meals vegan or gluten free, but when it happens it's definitely an added bonus. Throw in the terms easy, meal prep, and filling and we've got ourselves a winner that will show up again and again on the...
Chocolate raspberry rugelach with the flakiest cream cheese dough. Buttery perfection! I have this feeling that when my kids are older and reflecting on their favorite dishes from childhood, these chocolate raspberry rugelach will top that list. They certainly top mine! I've been making these same rugelach, with an adapted version of the filling from Smitten Kitchen, for years, and our entire family agrees -- pure bliss. How do you make rugelach dough? First, let me...
Layers of matzah, a toffee-like caramel, semi-sweet or dark chocolate, and an abundance of sea salt. Matzah crack is one treat you will crave every single day. You asked, and I heard. The demand for matzah crack was so overwhelming that I decided to go ahead and put it up on the blog, even though Passover is long behind us. Which is actually fine because as far as I'm concerned matzah crack should be a year round...
