Avocado Toast

Avocado on Rye Toast

I was born in the late 70s, a time when the Internet as we know it was still a distant dream for a bunch of tech guys trying to connect the entire world. So no, I’m not a Millennial. And while I do know a few that I absolutely adore, I have to admit that […]

Garlic Dip/Dressing

Garlic Dip

So last week was all about the different spice mixes you can create in your own kitchen and store in your pantry instead of wasting all that money on them in the grocery store. And just like you can do it with spices, you can also do it with dips and dressings (and just about anything […]

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.

Twisty Roasted Garlic Breadsticks

We make pizza a lot over here and last time, I had a whole other batch of pizza dough left over. Feeling ambitious, I decided to whip up some breadsticks to serve alongside the pizza. As I was rolling them out, I had a vision. I’ve made “twisty breadsticks” before, but found that the dough didn’t quite […]

Salted Caramel Popcorn

Is there anything better than caramel? I mean, really, I’d argue that it’s even better than chocolate. After all, we don’t try to get our roasts and vegetables to chocolatize now, do we? No, we want them to caramelize, because only then do you get the buttery, sugary tastiness that only comes from caramel and almost-burnt […]
