  • Fast and Easy Irish Soda Bread

    Posted on March 17, 2013 by Laura in Baked Goods, Breads, Ingredients from Scratch, Posts by Laura, Side Dishes, Uncategorized.

    I came across this recipe one evening searching for a fast bread to make to go with dinner that didn’t require yeast and multiple risings.  It comes from an old American Heart Association paperback cookbook that my mom sent with me when I moved out as a teen many many years ago (copyright 1973!).  I’m […]

  • Shortbread Tips

    Posted on November 29, 2012 by Sarah in Posts by Sarah, Uncategorized.

      These tips for making perfect shortbread come from the amazing cookbook Baking from Dorie Greenspan.  It is worth every penny.  Go buy it.  Some recipes for shortbread call for using a food processor.  Dorie’s recipes all use a stand mixer.  I’m sure both would work. 1. “Use fresh butter that is soft, but not […]

  • Almond Crusted Fish

    Posted on November 19, 2012 by Sarah in Uncategorized.

    Originally titled Almond Flounder Meuniere and made with small flounder, I made this Dorie Greenspan recipe using cod.  The measurements below are for two servings, but it can easily be doubled or tripled.  If you grind your own almonds, be sure to blanch and remove their skins prior to grinding in your food processor or […]

  • A message from Ina Garten…

    Posted on November 13, 2012 by Sarah in Uncategorized.

      Taken from her cookbook Barefoot Contessa Family Style. Several years ago, a friend of mine decided to impress her new husband by making him Thanksgiving dinner.  She prepared the turkey, put it in the oven, and said, “Let’s take a walk while the turkey cooks.”  When she came back to base the turkey and […]

  • Tangy Tomato Shrimp

    Posted on October 28, 2012 by Sarah in Main Dishes, Posts by Sarah, Uncategorized.

    The sauce in this dish is incredible.  If you’re not a fan of shrimp or you’re a vegetarian, throw in some pan-fried tofu or sautéed vegetables instead.  All the moisture is preserved in the shrimp if they are cooked still in their shells, so you can expect easy preparation and messy eating.  Fast, impressive and […]

  • Caramelized Chicken with Lemongrass and Chilies

    Posted on October 18, 2012 by Sarah in Main Dishes, Posts by Sarah, Uncategorized.

    The grandmother who shared this recipe, Huong Thu Nguyen, states, “It takes awhile to make good caramel sauce without burning it.”  I didn’t burn mine, but it didn’t quite caramelize as much as in the picture the way it was supposed to.  I’m sure I will get it after another try or two.  Regardless, we […]

  • Plum Wood Smoked Salt

    Posted on September 1, 2012 by Sarah in Posts by Julian, Uncategorized.

    Sometimes I get on odd tangents when it comes to the things I make in the kitchen. This usually happens when I see something at the store that is super expensive, such as smoked salt, and I feel like I could do just as good of a job without adding all the chemicals or “anti-caking […]
