Kenilworth Market Basil Noodles

As the weather has gotten warmer, I’ve missed easing through spring a bit, but am now starting to crave some summer goodness! Asparagus and basil overlap their seasons for just a few weeks and make a tasty spring treat together! 

Kimchi Ramen

People are put on earth for various purposes; I was put on earth to do this. Eat noodles right here.

Pulled Pork & Sweet Potato Pie

A couple weeks ago I was gifted some beautiful purple-fleshed sweet potatoes by my colleague who owns Roberts Roost Farm. After trying a few simply diced and steamed, I was amazed that their rich, deep, beautiful purple hue stayed so vibrant alongside their deliciously sweet flavor! I started dreaming about what I might be able…

Green Tomato Casserole

This casserole is incredibly decadent, with layers of crisp, tangy green tomatoes plus rich pimiento style cheese and cheesy breadcrumbs. A great dish to say farewell to fall and settle into winter — I promise you, this is delicious.

Pizza (A Love Story)

Butternut Miso Soup

Kimchi Poutine

Kimchi adds a welcome spice and acidity to fries and miso gravy. This is the ultimate meal for when you need to eat with your hands, lick your fingers, and chow down.

Vegan Pumpkin Mapo Tofu

I was in the mood for mapo tofu a few days ago, and made a vegan version substituting Chinese cabbage and shiitake mushrooms for meat. The mushrooms have a deep umami, and paired with crumbled soft tofu, the recipe below made for a rich, savory, spicy stew.
