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...
10 minute muesli is made with natural oats, dried fruit, nuts and is made perfect by a splash of cold milk! Say hello to the adult version of cereal that is about to replace any and all boxed varieties in your life. It's a bold claim, but that's how strongly I believe in this recipe. this homemade muesli is easy, quick, packed with nutrients, and so crazy satisfying that you'll kick yourself for not making...
Who's ready to up your dinner party game? Raise your hand if you're constantly on the search for recipes that are easy to execute, yet show stoppers? This girl is. Like always and forever. Hosting friends and family is one of my greatest pleasures, and feeding them well tops the list of ways to make each visit memorable. Sure, you could order a pizza or grill some burgers -- and trust me, there is a...
Did I ever tell you about the first date my husband ever took me on? He brought me to a restaurant by the beach where I promptly ordered a chicken caesar salad and proceeded to eat only half of it. He still makes fun of me to this day for ordering something so lame. Grouper! Shrimp! Salmon! Anything would have been more appropriate than a caesar salad. Alas, I am who I am and that's...
Let me give it to you straight: over the course of my life, I have fried many things. Latkes, doughnuts, french fries, rice-cracker crusted tuna... you know, the usual. But these ricotta fritters with chocolate cara cara sauce are bar none the best. These little bites of perfection are lighter than air and can be whipped up in no time. I want to keep them for always. Which is a pretty hard thing to do given...
Spicy crab pasta with lemon and capers. It's a love letter to seafood and carbs, and also to anyone you deem worthy enough to serve it to. This is the perfect example that simple and unfussy can be both elegant and refined. When I tell you how long it took to make this you won't believe me. Literally comes together in minutes -- don't even try to make the sauce while the pasta is cooking,...
Whole wheat morning glory muffins -- or as I refer to them, less-bad-for-you-than-bakery-style-muffins -- are less of a guilty pleasure than most, and are here to help you hit the ground running in 2019. I've got goals, man. Goals to turn 2019 into a year of 'yes' rather than holding myself back, afraid to step outside the box. Often the thing holding us back is fear, and I'm determined to push that aside in favor of...
Is there a recipe in your life that you know so well, inside and out, backwards and forward, that you find yourself making it on repeat? It's both a reliable dinner party staple, and a comforting date night in when you crave the familiar. That's what Melissa Clark's anchovy chicken has become for my family. And before you go running for the hills, let me assure you that if you think you don't like anchovies, you're...
Holiday cheer: it comes in many forms, but my current favorite is this cranberry gin shaker. I'm branching out, folks! Not just popping open the predictable bottle of bubbly or full-bodied red, which by the way, are solid choices. But this year my husband gave me a hard time about drinking the same-old same-old, week after week. I'm a bourbon girl through and through, so in addition to wine, I have exactly one mixed drink...
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...
