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…

Cake Batter Cheesecake Bars

Cake Batter Cheesecake Bars

We celebrated the 35th “birthday” of a weekly meeting on the topic of memory that my graduate advisors host. The majority of the alumni of this meeting have gone on to big research careers. I’ve only been a part of this meeting for a year, but it has been a great learning experience, and I…

Creamy Manchego Salmon Pasta

Creamy Manchego Salmon Pasta

Erin has this amazing memory from Barolo back in Seattle. It was one of our first meals in the city, and she ordered this rather amazing creamy salmon pasta. Every once in awhile, I like to try and recreate it (or something inspired by it). Today’s adaptation is a creamy manchego pasta with salmon. Yums.…

Reuben Pizza

Reuben Pizza

We pretty much love reuben sandwiches and are always looking for new interpretations of a reuben (see here and here). So here is our latest version…a reuben made into a pizza! It has all of the elements of your favorite reuben sandwich on top of a pizza crust with a little bit of fresh mozzarella,…

BLTA Pasta

BLTA Pasta

I know the final product was not what Dustin was expecting when I told him I was making him BLTA pasta, but in the end I think he was pleasantly surprised with how nice and gourmet-feeling this dish came out. Typically a BLT is not what you’d consider fancy, but take all of its standard…

Cajun Beer Can Chicken + Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Cajun Beer Can Chicken + Avocado Mashed Potatoes

We bought an entire case of Coors Light just so we could make this beer can chicken. The chicken itself was a fancy Jidori chicken, then we cooked it with Coors Light…I had to laugh at this disparity in the quality of ingredients. We really wanted to grill our chicken, but there was no way…

Beef Fajita Burger

Beef Fajita Burger

We spent 4th of July with this delicious monstrosity of a burger in our bellies. Inspired by this chicken fajita burger, we replaced the chicken fajitas with grilled skirt steak marinated in lime, orange juice, and tequila. Queso dripping out of the sides and a little guacamole on top makes it the perfect ode to…

Blueberry Mint Pie

Blueberry Mint Pie

This blueberry mint pie was inspired by my favorite lemonade flavor at a local upscale cafeteria restaurant. I’ve started stopping by after my barre workout, which pretty much cancels out all the hard work I’ve just done. It’s just so refreshing to sip on during my walk home in the California sun. I started thinking…
