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

Frittata!

Frittata!

I’ve never made frittata before, but have always wanted to. Usually on Sundays. A week or so ago a bunch of us fell asleep at a friend’s house post-bar, and upon waking Duke and I decided to take the opportunity to make some fancy brunch. We made this excellent frittata adapted from one of the … Continue reading

Eggplant Rollies

Eggplant Rollies

In the meantime, please bear with the iPhone photos. A while ago I made potato gnocchi totally from scratch. It was certainly time-consuming, but would’ve been a … 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

Lentil Burgers

Lentil Burgers

I’m still trolling the internet for great vegan and vegetarian food blogs–there are actually a surprising amount of decent ones–and am eager to make up for the last homemade veggie burger disaster (really dry crumbly failure black bean burgers, which I didn’t even bother to post). I saw a recipe for lentil burgers on one … Continue reading

Food Pictures

I made this to take to work the other day and it looked rather pretty, so obviously I took a picture of it. Lovely Duke Charles made me pancakes on Sunday, since I had a really really long day at work on Saturday. We also got free blueberries, score.
