Smoked Chocolate Lava Cakes

Smoked Chocolate Lava Cakes

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since I’ve blogged. It’s not that I don’t have anything to talk about. In fact, I have a huge backlog of recipes I fully intend to write about. But getting a PhD is a lot of work (in case you haven’t heard). Any free time I get,…

Red Velvet Cookies

Red Velvet Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re having a lazy morning (with fresh squeezed blood orange juice) followed by a brewery visit and (apparently amazing) pastrami sandwiches for lunch. Tonight we are celebrating by going downtown to watch the Kings play win. Last night we celebrated by making the most delicious pizza we’ve ever created at home using…

Mini Chocolate Covered Cacao Nib Cookies

Mini Chocolate Covered Cacao Nib Cookies

When we visited Boston a few months back, we toured (and devoured lots of chocolate) at this wonderful chocolate factory called Taza. In addition to more traditional chocolates, they make a Mexican inspired chocolate with a really unique, kind of grainy (but definitely not in a bad way) dark chocolate. We came home with many…

Edamame Soup

Edamame Soup

This soup is the perfect use for the leftover créme fraîche from the mussels in cider. I’m a big fan of edamame, but it is typically one of those things I only eat if it comes gratis with the sushi we’ve ordered (as much as I enjoy edamame, I don’t think I could ever convince Dustin…

Mussels in Cider

Mussels in Cider

It’s been an incredibly long time since we’ve posted something. There just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day for work/school, creating and cooking new and interesting meals, writing about them, and sleeping. Trader Joe’s frozen meals and easy repeat meals have become a staple on our weekly menu. But we did make…

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Making a homemade cheeseball is a fun and surprisingly easy appetizer. I can definitely see making this again for parties because it’s simple to prepare in advance. I liked the idea of rolling a cheeseball in all of the fun stuff you’d find on top of an everything bagel. Inside of all that good stuff is…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

When I visited my parents in Indiana before Christmas, I helped my mom bake a bunch of cookies to put into holiday gift baskets for their neighbors. I chose these cookies because they are super simple (I’ve made them before), they remind me of brownies, and covered in powdered sugar before baking, they look like…

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

I bought a family-sized package of cheese tortellini when we made this spinach and artichoke tortellini soup and only used half off it. While the spinach and artichoke version was light and refreshing, this meaty, tomato and pepper version was much heartier and fall/winter appropriate. Originally I envisioned large chunks of sausage or chorizo, but…

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Boy was this a delicious meal. We stopped by our local cheese shop, and on a whim bought some fresh burrata. When we tried to decide what we would actually eat the burrata with, all we could settle on was some kind of awesome pasta. I set my sights on making a damn good tomato sauce…
