Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

We had some of the best fried chicken—truffle honey laced fried chicken with a most delicious slaw—  I’ve ever tasted at Manhattan Beach Post for brunch a few weeks ago. I really wanted to try to recreate it– I think it would be the perfect fried chicken for chicken and waffles since it has a…

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

There are a lot of B’s in that title, but everything is so important to the flavors of the dish that I just couldn’t bear to leave one out! I’ve seriously been in a creative run lately when it comes to new dinner idea. Browsing foodgawker, I stumbled upon an impressive looking chicken burger that…

Soft Scrambled Egg Brioche Breakfast Sandwiches

Soft Scrambled Egg Brioche Breakfast Sandwiches

A few weeks ago we headed into Grand Central Market for breakfast at eggslut. Despite getting there on the early side, we still had quite a wait in front of us, but once we finally got our food, we knew why we had to wait− because we were eating some of the best breakfast sandwiches…

Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

I had no intention of making actual monster cookies, but when I was asked to bring desserts for a small event at school and decided to show up with rosemary chocolate chip cookies, I figured I’d better also show up with a more mainstream cookie to please the slightly less adventurous eater. I had all…

Summer Vegetable Fried Rice

Summer Vegetable Fried Rice

I recently read an article about things you will experience within the first year of moving to Southern California. One thing I  found to be true was the statement that you will feel guilty when you purchase produce from some place other than the farmer’s market. The vegetables used in here are from the grocery store,…

Falafel Fail + Garlic Sauce Goodness

Falafel Fail + Garlic Sauce Goodness

Let’s start off with the positives. We made fluffy, delicious pita (and ate way too much of it over the course of two days). We made perfect garlic sauce, officially known as toum, like you’d get from a Mediterranean restaurant when you order shawarma. We’ve been eating garlic sauce with everything from eggs to our…

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adding rosemary to your chocolate chip cookies will change your life. At least I think so, as well as a few other individuals that sampled this creation− they were a big hit with my peers and Dustin’s coworkers. Lately I’ve been obsessed with infusing herbs (basil and mint) into ice cream, and I also remembered thoroughly enjoying…

Funfetti Biscotti

Funfetti Biscotti

Tomorrow we start our diet. Our food consumption has been a little out of control lately, so Dustin and I have vowed for the month of August to be more about clean eating. More salads, fewer desserts. I thought about trying the Whole 30 diet where you eliminate sugar and basically eat just lean protein and…

Caramelized Peach Caprese Salad

Caramelized Peach Caprese Salad

Caprese salads are definitely my meal of choice for the summer. An upgraded peach version has been on the middle of my summer to-do list for awhile. However, this dish jumped to the top of the list when I saw this recipe for a caprese salad with caramelized peaches. We didn’t have smoked salt, but I was…

Chipotle Peach Pie

Chipotle Peach Pie

This chipotle peach pie will shock and awaken your taste buds! I fully expected this pie to be a little bit smoky and hot when I first bit into it, and even I was still surprised. But in a good way− I kept going back for more and more! You’ll never go back to boring peach…
