Quick but delicious weeknight dinners are my jam. I don’t like to spend more than 40 minutes but I don’t want to be completely boring or entirely routine. I like a bit of variety and I like to have a bunch of strong meals in my rotation. I recently tried a new sheet pan recipeContinue reading “cook | sheet pan shrimp scampi.”
I love making linguine with clams–and I like to change it up; sometimes a red sauce, sometimes a white wine one. This one was made with some leftover tomato sauce I had in the freezer and needed to use up. I added white wine, garlic, spicy red pepper flakes, parm, and a little basil beforeContinue reading “cook | spicy linguine with clams.”
Salad niçoise is one of my go-to’s for back porch summer dinners, especially with guests. I like that guests can mix and match–add anything to their salad they like, and leave off stuff they don’t care for. It’s a win win. And now that we’ve finally got back porch weather, bring on those entree salads. WhatContinue reading “cook | niçoise porch life.”
This was a simple, quick, but super delicious weeknight dinner. All together, it took about 20 minutes, from start to finish.

It’s simple, throw tons of garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, and olive oil intoContinue reading “weeknight dinner | pappardelle with clams.”

Jared Flood’s new book is a dream. As if my obsession with Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns could get any stronger, enter Woolens. If you haven’t grabbed a copy, please do. It was a great pairing for a fish vera cruz weeknight dinner on the back porch. The recipe is from America’s Test Kitchen BestContinue reading “woolens x weeknight dinner.”
One of the easiest–and most delicious–weeknight dinners I’ve made in a long while. You barely have to do anything, the fennel, potatoes and carrots are deliciously lemony, and the chicken thighs are fall off the bone moist. I’m adding this to my regular rotation. Grab the recipe here.
It’s that season. Late fall, heading toward winter. So, it’s all roasted veggies and roasted birds. This one I stuffed with half a head of garlic and a whole lemon, cut in half. Then I put salt and pepper on top and brushed the skin with melted butter, surrounded it with golden beats and brusselContinue reading “roasted.”
Last night, I wanted a quick dinner that wouldn’t be over the top filling and pretty easy to execute because I was heading out to the Jesus and Mary Chain show later. Enter this shrimp and pineapple fried rice. I did a few mods–I sauteed the onion and garlic, then added raw shrimp and cookedContinue reading “fried rice.”
The other night, I made some pretty bang up fish tacos. I grilled off some fresh wild caught local sole, which I marinated in olive oil, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and some cumin. The tacos were topped with pickled red onions in lime juice, bibb lettuce, cucumber, and a homemade lime crema. The crema wasContinue reading “fish tacos.”
Ridiculously hot temperatures and back to work means easy, cool, light dinners at home. Hello, cobb salad, my favorite friend. I like to make chicken and hard boil my eggs ahead of time, so really, the day of, there’s no cooking at all.
There’s nothing better than eating fresh, local produce in summer. Here’s my weeknight dinner: mixed greens, local goat cheese and roasted beets, as well as a bit of granny smith apple, walnuts and a blush wine vinaigrette. Doesn’t get much better.
