End-of-Season Kimchi

This beautiful kimchi feels very special to me through the people that have touched it – late fall shishito, scallions, daikon, watermelon radish, and napa cabbage from Yellow House Farm and Calvert’s Gift Farm.

My Year of the Cucumber

I feel grateful for the cucumbers. I killed my tomatoes this year. There, I said it. I think it was a combination of poor transplant timing, a non-gardener house sitter, and the persistent rain this year, but they seemed like they barely stood a chance. Maybe it’s just as well – I am usually cursing…

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. 

Hummus & Simple Comforts

I wanted to write a simple hummus recipe, the kind of comfort that is easy to come by. Homemade is better, forgiving, and perfect.

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Salad

This is delicious. It’s good hot, cold, and with chips, and holds up well for a packed lunch or a potluck – a real make-ahead winner!

Kimchi Ramen

Ramen noodle soup with kimchi has become one of my dinner staples. The prep work comes together pretty quickly and kimchi packs serious flavor to make this soup hot, sour, spicy, and savory. Plus, adding kimchi is a great way to add more veg to this soup without having to think about prepping too much,…

Spring Radish Kimchi

One of my favorite things about spring is the abundance of radishes. This radish kimchi was my first preparation for our wedding reception!

Tom Kha Gai

Tom Kah Gai, or coconut soup with chicken, is a fantastic array of flavors that are balanced perfectly into a delectable bowl of soup. It is a little salty, sweet, spicy, savory, and sour- a little bit of everything! This version is based on recipes from the She Simmers blog and Thai Food by David Thompson,…

Veg Sushi

Sushi at home can be anything! Skip the fish and make your own from veggies, pickles, and tasty things.
