These are by far the best fish tacos I’ve ever had. With a desire to pay tribe to their provenance, and to create a quick reference for myself, I am sharing them here. I first came across this recipe on Food52.com, however it is originally by a woman named Emily, of FiveandSpice.com / @fiveandspice. Emily explains that the inspiration to make these tacos came from the cookbook Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzzane Goin. When I looked into it, […]
I would never go so far as to say that an all-vegetable dish could actually fool a meat-lover, but there are some that I believe would wholly satisfy the most ardent of carnivores, and this is one of the few and far between. After searching high and low online, I finally just turned to a favorite Bolognese recipe that I first came across in the Epicurious bookazine Italy, which I reference regularly, and made educated adaptations. Including opting out of […]
If meatballs with tomato sauce aren’t a fun weeknight dinner, I don’t know what is. Thanks to fresh herbs and garlic, these turkey meatballs would be delicious as a stand-along anchor of a well rounded meal, accompanied by greens and potatoes – actually a more authentically Italian take than the Americanized version featuring tomato sauce. I’ll take one of each! These are light, quick to make and great for a crowd.

On a crisp day this chili is just what the doctor ordered, in so many ways. It’s a great make ahead and pre-portioned servings freeze beautifully. This chili is meatless and can be a welcome respite from heavy cold-weather dishes, yet is still very satisfying.

So. California. Home to the vegetarian movement in the U.S. The Golden State whose sunshine and mild climate makes possible remarkable produce all year long. Hotbed of almost countless sustainable food startups and home to internationally influential chefs. And place where, to date, my out of home dining experiences have for the most part led to absolutely delicious foods that are as fresh a treat as one could hope for. Except for, you won’t believe it, shockingly underwhelming veggie burgers. […]
This dish is so good, after I ate the portion pictured here, I immediately ran to my computer to share this recipe. (And I mean immediately – dishes are not yet done. Those who know me know that this means business about how good this dish is – I rarely, *rarely* do anything before cleaning up dishes after dinner, they irk me so.) You have to make this pesto, it is so delicious, flavorful and light. It comes together really […]
This delicious dish was unusual for us only in that we do not by design have to avoid gluten. However with what feels like a growing number of friends who must omit the grain-based protein, it seems to make sense to get a handle on a few staples. I am proud to say that our first gluten-intolerant dinner guest pronounced this dish delicious! This lasagna can be made with traditional noodles as well. Which leads me from various dietary needs […]
Two things inspired this dressing – one, a delicious version of it I got to try last weekend at one of our favorite restaurants in New Paltz, NY, the Mountain Brauhaus. I’d assumed it’d be more like a dip for the veggies in my salad (I requested it on the side as usual) but for lack of a better visual, it was actually runny. Plus, the flavor was perfect, and when a friend tried hers and said, I taste dill […]
Lately there is a proliferation of beautiful farmer’s market finds across the Internet and social media, and for good reason – the gorgeous produce of Spring is certainly photo-inspiring! But I think there is a year-round, unsung hero of the farmer’s market, and that’s fresh chicken. In addition to tasting noticeably more delicious, a favorite benefit of using fresh, organic, local chicken is the homemade broth that you can make with it, and knowing that the chicken is truly […]
