Rice Balls (Arancini)

Rice Balls (Arincini)

I had my first rice balls about a year ago. My grandma was in the hospital (she’s much better now, thankfully!) and one of the only shining lights was that there was this fantastic Italian grocery store my mom knew about close by. We picked up a bunch of good stuff, along with ready-made rice balls to […]

Air Crisper Fries

Air Crisper Tray

I recently moved into a new home and my mom came up just a couple of weeks later for a visit. Knowing how much I love to be in the kitchen, and how much I probably loved being in my brand new kitchen even more, she brought me the perfect housewarming present – the Gotham Air […]

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

prosciutto-wrapped-asparagus

I love wrapping things in prosciutto, and when it comes to asparagus, there’s more than one way to do it. Well actually, there’s only one way to wrap prosciutto around asparagus. It’s your basic “drop it on and roll it up” technique, but there’s more than one way to enjoy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. You can leave both the asparagus and prosciutto raw, you […]

Harvard Beets

harvard-beets

Harvard beets are a funny thing. They’re kind of like pickled beets, but instead of being simmered in a pickling liquid and served cold, they’re quickly run through a warm gastrique and served hot. I spent some time trying to find out why these particular beets are known as Harvard beets, but my search was in vain. I still […]
