Penne with Balsamic Brown Butter

Hello everyone!!! So sorry that I have been MIA for so long. Ditto to everything Whitney has said. Sometimes life just gets crazy, but I’m SO glad to be back! The good news is that we survived the first two weeks of school- academics, mental breakdowns, oven fires and all. Will we survive the next

Sticky Buns, Faulty Fire Extinguishers, and Disaster Averted

When I decided to make sticky buns yesterday, I figured that going for something simple would be best. After all I’m no master of the oven; I’m actually a full fledged novice when it comes to anything baking. Who better to turn to than Ina when looking for a straight forward recipe with a delicious

Pan Seared Cod with Sauteed Summer Veggies

As you all know, Whitney took a cooking class at the French Culinary Institute this summer. Every Saturday she would spend the entire day on her feet, learning how to braise, saute, pan sear, and other things awesome and francais. Not only did she make delicious food, but she usually brought it home for me

Creamy Israeli Couscous and an Airplane Food Rant

This week I’m in California! Before I blog about all food West Coast, I thought I’d give you a little post about eating before boarding your flight to your next vacation destination. Now we all know that plane food is a little less than subpar. If you’re lucky enough to even be fed on a

Baked Egg Noodle Casserole Creation

A few days ago I was rummaging around the kitchen. I was exhausted from a summer of running around the city, and congested and sniffly from living with a congested and sniffly Whitney. What I craved was comfort food. I went to our pasta cabinet and I was surprised to see that all we had

Summer Squash and Heirloom Tomato Gratin

Some of the perks of coming home in the summer is being able to spend time with family and friends, exchanging stories about the year and sleeping inappropriately late. Something else that is a little more than helpful is my burgeoned grocery budget. Hey, I gotta feed the whole family! On Andrea Meyer’s blog, I

Union Square Green Market – Heirloom Tomato Salad

There are some aspects of summer that we wait patiently all year to enjoy. Some wait for the sun and a tan, others wait for the rolling waves at the beach. You know what I wait for? Heirloom tomatoes. Heirlooms are not just your ordinary tomato. They are a wide range of colors and sizes

Dabbling in the Kitch – Stuffed Tomatoes

I am very lucky to have a roommate/best friend/co-blogger who is attending classes at the French Culinary Institute this summer. Every Saturday, Whitney comes home with stories of flambeed chicken, animal cheeks, stewed lamb and buttery baked barley. I only wish I could take part in this exciting culinary experience. This past Saturday, Whit came

Dabbling in the Kitch – Diane’s Tomato Pie

I have come to realize why pizza is one of the most popularly made and consumed foods in the US. The crust is thick and doughy, the sauce is hot and oily and of course the cheesy is ooey gooey. You really can’t go wrong with that sort of combination. But what happens when you

Dabbling in the Kitch – Tuscan White Bean Soup

For those of you who live in New York, you will have noticed that yesterday was quite an anomaly of a normal summer day. It was rainy, breezy and cold. Mother nature was certainly lending herself to a more autumn feel. After taking about a 20 minute walk and enduring the dreary drizzle, I was
