Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

In Southern New Jersey, I live near farms where I can pick blueberries for 4 weeks every summer. Hammonton, only a 30 minute drive from me, calls itself the blueberry capital of the world. And indeed, New Jersey blueberries are fantastic. I’m a recent transplant […]

Easy Pancakes

Easy Pancakes

We make pancakes ridiculously often, and this recipe for super easy pancakes is the recipe we use on a regular basis. Alex and I both have it memorized. I love how simple it is – just whisk together the ingredients and cook. No whipping egg […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These delicious, gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars epitomize compromise. For instance, you need to make a dessert for a potluck. You want to make cookies for a potluck. But you don’t really want to make cookies for a potluck. You know, the dough-scooping. Making sure cookies […]

Barbecue Spice Rub

Barbecue Spice Rub

I’m long overdue to share my favorite Barbecue Spice Rub with you. It’s salty, peppery, and slightly sweet. If you’re vinegar-averse, this is for you!! I’ve loved it ever since I first made it 8 years ago, when I started this blog with my 365 […]

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

This Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame Oil, and Cashews is my absolute favorite salad. The lime juice is zippy; the sesame oil, toasty and delicious; the cashews, crunchy and buttery. Jalapenos add a slight but not overwhelming amount of heat. And grilled steak – if […]

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

It’s been 8 years since I first made Alton Brown’s Plain Ole’ Brownies (as part of my 365 Recipe Challenge). I’ve often felt that, although I attempted the brownies two or three times, I didn’t quite do them justice.* So I finally tried them again.

Bulgogi Tacos

Bulgogi Tacos

I love this recipe for bulgogi tacos. It’s a delicious, actual 30-minute weeknight dinner that my 3-year-old eats and eats and eats, and so do we adults. Even so, just how much I liked it surprised me. I’m not generally a fan of fusion cuisine. I […]

Campari Margarita

Campari Margarita

It surprises me that I’m writing a post about a recipe for a Campari Margarita. It surprises me because, in fact, it’s the only drink with Campari that I’ve enjoyed. I’m sure some of you are in the same boat as we are, with a […]
