Milk Bar’s Birthday Cake

It’s my birthday week!  I had a lovely birthday complete with a deep tissue massage, two very nearly 80 degree days, TONS of new cookbooks from family and old friends, and dinner at my favorite restaurant with new friends.  I always make it a point to take a vacation day from work on my b-day.  For …

Chocolate Soufflé

Into every healthy diet a little chocolate must fall.  Chocolate soufflé is the perfect homemade Valentine’s gift that screams I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I MADE YOU A CHOCOLATE CLOUD!  Trust me, this is one gift that will be appreciated.  Making a soufflé is not difficult (I swear), it’s just a little time-consuming and fast-moving.   I …

Breakfast Bowl: Chia Pudding with Fruit

Last month I was feeling like I’ve been in a breakfast rut so I googled healthy breakfast bowls and came across a surprising amount of recipes for chia seed pudding.  I’ve been eating this all week and like it so much that I’m sharing it with y’all. I am probably late to this chia seed game because I thought cha-cha-cha-Chia seeds …

Turkey meatballs with Zoodles and Noodles

If the month of March’s slogan is, “comes in like a Lion”,  I think January’s slogan should be, “comes in like a slap”!  Let’s face it, we just finished almost two straight months of gluttony; Thanksgiving dinner, Thanksgiving leftovers, Christmas cookies, multiple holiday parties and feasts (more leftovers) and don’t forget something lavish for NYE, too!  Now all of a …

Khoresh Karafs

Let me disclaim: I am an American self-taught home cook (not an old Persian lady) and this is my quick version of a tasty khoresh. What is Khoresh, you ask?  Khoresh is the Persian equivalent to a French braise.  Persian cooking is complex, typically with a lot of exotic ingredients, but I’ve found Khoresh Karafs to …

Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Tart

I Loooooove Thanksgiving dinner with a capitol “L”.  I love all the preparation of lists, grocery shopping and cooking with my mom in anticipation of the gluttonous once-a-year meal it yields. I love my mom’s sausage stuffing the most (and yes, it’s stuffing because she does stuff it into the bird). Here’s Thanksgiving tidbit #2 that you …

Maple Roasted Carrots

Thanksgiving tidbit #1 that you didn’t know about me: I hate cooked carrots.  Like, nope, no thank-you, I only like ’em raw.  I can remember being six years old and secretly palming my mom’s cooked carrots under the table to Brandy, the family golden retriever (sorry mom).   Leave it to Ina Garten to make cooked carrots not only palatable, but so downright …

Baked Doughnuts

Baked doughnuts are definitely not fried doughnuts but basically eating a doughnut for breakfast is like eating cake for breakfast so everyone still wins.  This particular doughnut is in fact called a cake doughnut, meaning there isn’t any yeast involved.  You can totally be eating doughnuts in roughly 30 minutes from beginning to end and …

Porky Rice Bowls

I feel like we have just gotten into the swing of all this heat and suddenly the temps are (sort of) dropping, the days are getting shorter and Baby P is this new upwardly mobile, vocal little human.  I feel like we have eaten a lot of awesome things this summer that I was lax on posting about, because, well, LIFE.  This refreshing, …

milk bar’s compost cookie

The Compost Cookie® is my first attempt at a Christina Tosi Milk Bar recipe, but it will not be my last.  I really want to try her birthday cake recipe (complete with funfetti sprinkles and birthday cake crumbs!) but figured I’d first cut my teeth on something as simple as her cookies.  Simple.  HA.    This recipe is …
