It’s a thing, and a good one at that.
Though I admit to not being all that well-versed in “My Drunk Kitchen” the video series, I still wanted to see how Hannah Hart’s humor translated into book form. I might have aged out of some of this life advice, but her enthusiasm and love of puns still won me over.
Another summer is winding down, which means those of us lucky enough to live close to orchards have access to delicious peaches.
I don’t like two of the primary ingredients in this dish, yet I will eat an entire pan of it all by myself. Something about roasting the tomatoes and caramelizing the onions brings the flavors together in a way that’s pretty amazing.
This was one of those recipes that arose out of necessity. And I love it.
Summer has arrived (unless you’re in England, in which case you are still waiting patiently), and you don’t want to cook stuff. A salad it is, then!
Yes, I probably should have made this for Mardi Gras, but I didn’t think of it in time. Besides, there’s absolutely no reason not to eat Cajun food every chance you get! The jambalaya recipe is adapted from Gulf Coast Cooking by Virginia T. Elverson; my dad used to make it, though I haven’t cooked up a batch […]
The Mughal Empire was founded in 1529 and at its height reached from Kabul (Afghanistan) to Kanyakumari (in the state of Tamil Nadu, in southernmost India). The Mughals were Persian and their cooks borrowed from Persian and Indian cuisine, leaving us with such beloved dishes as pulau, paneer, and biryani. This bread recipe is from […]
Snowe is a dessert recipe of sorts — it’s a sweet dish, though I could see eating it at breakfast, for a snack, etc. I think it will be especially nice in summertime. It’s a simple, light dessert — doesn’t require much prep time. Pictures and recipe after the jump.
During the Thanksgiving through Christmas onslaught of eating, I sometimes become more motivated to cook foods that I normally would not be able to eat. I’ve been lactose intolerant since age 15, and though lactase supplements help with some foods, other rich treats overpower the capabilities of those little white pills. Pumpkin pie is usually […]
Wafers, waffles, pizzelles. Whatever you call, it’s tasty. A medieval combination of waffle and cookie.
Medieval gingerbread is one of my specialties. It’s very easy to make and produces a lot of end product to share with family and friends. It’s a sweet or confection, not a cookie/cake like modern gingerbread. And sticky. You can also shape it, so it can be an especially pretty dessert. Pictures and recipe after the […]
Okay, so this was less adventurous and more experimental. I had milk that needed using up, I wanted something that was okay for Little Juniper, and whatever I made, I wanted it to be quick and simple.
In my piece on low-income cooking as self-care, I shared a picture of a ramen noodle stir fry with chicken, a recipe I received from my good friend and fellow food lover, Lauren. Like me, Lauren constantly looks out for delicious, inexpensive, and quick recipes. Since she shared it with me, it’s become a regular […]
Well, technically, it’s a cobbler.
