Roasted beet, potato, and goat cheese salad

Roasted beet, potato, and goat cheese salad

If only I’d had some rosemary. Would also be good on a bed of spinach! Chop raw potatoes and beets into bite-sized pieces, toss in olive oil/salt/pepper/rosemary(?) and cook at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Beets will be a bit firmer. After it’s cooled a bit, sprinkle some goat … Continue reading

I don’t know how to do Swiss Chard

I don’t know how to do Swiss Chard

A lot’s been going on since the last post–first, life updates! 1. Cat is still lovely, although she’s grumpier now that it’s hot and humid. I am too. 2. Got back together with an old boyfriend, Kevin. Things are going rather well; living in the same place is much better for healthy relationships. 3. Spencer … Continue reading

Sourdough bread!

Sourdough bread!

One of my stocking gifts this summer was a small dehydrated container of King Arthur Flour’s original 150 year old sourdough starter. I’d made sourdough starter about this time last year but wasn’t diligent enough to use and maintain it, so eventually it died. I’m going to be better with this one. I’ve already made … Continue reading

Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

Spencer and I have decided that we need to cook together more. Translation: he needs to use the kitchen for purposes other than pouring bowls of cereal and cups of coffee. I welcome it; given that I tire easily of eating the same meal for days on end, it’s nice to go through a given … Continue reading

Rosemary Hummus

Rosemary Hummus

Hello! So… how’s it going? It’s been a while since my last post, but I swear I have legit reasons for not posting. I got a job, moved to Boston, lived with my grandparents for a month (while I love them and appreciate their housing me rent-free, our respective culinary predilections simply don’t line up. … Continue reading

Stuffed Zucchini with Mushrooms

Stuffed Zucchini with Mushrooms

I saw a recipe on Pinterest (one of my new go-to sources for food inspiration) for stuffed zucchini. I’ve dabbled with stuffed vegetable recipes, but usually they tend to feature tomatoes or disgusting red peppers. After positing this observation to my Dukely companion, he mumbles something about asking for stuffed peppers for his special birthday … Continue reading

Sunday Morning Scones

Sunday Morning Scones

Hungover college students on Sunday morning (okay, afternoon) in a house with no easily accessible food is NOT good. We floated the idea of going to the dining hall (gross laxative food), going out to eat (too expensive), or going to the grocery (too much movement, too many lights and people). Pretty much the only … Continue reading

More Pizza!

More Pizza!

Last time we made pizza (see entry below) we only used half of the dough, so put the rest in the freezer for a future bro-out sesh. Our second iteration of pizza, however, turned out to be far bougier than I could ever have dreamed of. Behold the squash-brie-basil-red onion-goat cheese pizza. Originally we were … Continue reading

Friday Night: Pizza and Beer

Friday Night: Pizza and Beer

Rare indeed is the night when the Duke has consumed more than three beers and doesn’t utter this phrase: “Hey… do you want pizza?” Generally within 2 hours of beer consumption is when he first floats the idea. Maybe it’s because he’s part Italian? I think his pizza cravings have gotten worse the past few … Continue reading

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

You may have noticed on the other food blog that we made Pumpkin Challah, which later turned into Pumpkin Challah French Toast. What you may not know is that that brilliant idea was preceded by these pancakes. They turned out well, but they would’ve been better had I been allowed to put chocolate chips in … Continue reading
