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 […]

Strawberry Bellinis

Strawberry Bellinis

I was recently reminded of that time that I prepared way too many bellinis for my good friend Jen’s bridal shower. I’d never planned for a formal (-ish) party before and I had no sense of scale, no idea how much of anything would be […]

Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take […]

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

This recipe isn’t particularly seasonal. Sweet potatoes are a fall vegetable, right? But then again, with the unseasonably cool weather New Jersey keeps having, a warming Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew sounds pretty hot right now. This thick and creamy pureed stew is warm and […]

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Making and enjoying this recipe for Spicy Pork with Asparagus is directly related to our spring cleaning efforts. Recently Alex and I have gone through much of our stuff to try to downsize. One day, eventually, we will buy a house, and we had might […]

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup is a delicious and easy vegetarian meal. It’s been too long since I made it, and I’m so glad I tried it again! I originally wrote about this recipe in 2010 – it was #337 of my […]

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

Japanese Fried Chicken (Tori no Kara-age)

This Japanese fried chicken is near and dear to my heart. The recipe, called tori no kara-age, was the first dish my host mom ever made for me when I studied abroad – we ate it the night I moved in with my homestay family. […]

Whiskey Sherry Cocktail

Whiskey Sherry Cocktail

It’s been a few months since I last wrote about a cocktail. Alex and I have found a new one to share with you – this delicious Whiskey Sherry Cocktail. Just in time for National Cocktail Day! Last summer, on a rare occasion that we […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other […]
