Shepherd’s Pie with Cauliflower White Bean Mash

I have been meaning to post this recipe – which is a follow-up to my cauliflower and white bean mash recipe – for ages, but as the weather started to warm up I thought maybe I’d missed my chance. But as the unseasonable chill sets in and it rains intermittently, it’s actually the perfect time to enjoy shepherd’s pie. This British dish is warm and comforting, but not...

Celebrating Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day

March 20 is Fred Rogers’ birthday, as well as Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day in his honor. Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood may not have aired in 15 years, but it is still the bar by which I measure all other kids’ programming. Television started as a rainy day treat. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) discourages screen time before age two, a 2007 study published in the...

Cauliflower and White Bean Mash

Mashed potatoes have always been one of my favorite foods. They are the ultimate comfort – creamy, hearty, warming. But, also, carb heavy, which not everyone is into. We’re not big on diets, but when we feel our pants getting tight we try to eat in a slightly more “slow carb” fashion which is, thankfully, very bean-friendly. And so the white bean obsession...

Beet and Burrata Salad with Orange Blossom Vinaigrette

I know Labor Day signals the unofficial end of summer, but officially there’s still two weeks left and the weather is balmy. Stretch it out with this salad which, I kid you not, is one of the loveliest things I have ever eaten. The roasted beets (yellow if you got ’em) are earthy and sweet, the burrata is creamy and rich, and the orange blossom vinaigrette is just the slightest bit...

Summer Corn Chowder

I don’t typically crave soup in the summer, but when I do it’s corn chowder. When I’ve eaten as much corn on the cob as I can handle but can’t seem to pass up those gorgeous ears at the farmer’s market, I get chowder on the brain. I like a corn chowder that is simultaneously creamy and light, with a hint of smoky bacon flavor and some bite left to the corn kernels....

Garlicky White Beans with Spinach and Tomatoes

Oh, hey. Remember me? I’m baaaaack. I just had a few things to take care of, like move back and forth between Israel, New York, and Massachusetts a few times. Oh, and have a baby. Who is now a toddler. Time flies, huh? But I never stopped cooking. I was roasting chicken with an infant strapped to me and making peanut butter cups during nap time. I now excel at making scrambled eggs...

Homemade Soda Recipes and a Giveaway

I have so much respect for anyone who starts their own business. To come up with a product or idea, test it, market it, send it out into the world – it’s exciting and scary, exhausting and exhilarating. Which is why I was so excited when my blogging buddy Heidi from Young Grasshopper told me that her and business partner Barbie were starting their own line of simple syrups, adorably...

Tomato, Tomatillo, and Avocado Salad

While I’m beyond excited to experience my first Northeast autumn in three years, I’m always a little bit sad to say goodbye to summer. This week’s heat wave aside, it’s been a pleasantly warm July and August filled with lots of time spent outdoors. In order to have one last hurrah with some of summer’s best produce, I made this simple but incredibly tasty heirloom...

Honey Cake for Rosh Hashanah

I’ve barely touched my blog since moving home from Israel to New York – it’s so easy to get swept up in life here! But Rosh Hashanah, which is early this year, is fast approaching and so I’m snapping out of my summer blog hiatus to bring you this incredible honey cake recipe from Cook in Israel: Home Cooking with Orly Ziv (the cookbook that I photographed). Honey is...

Chinese Fried Rice Recipe and Leftovers Blog Hop

Leftovers get a bad rap. It wasn’t until I got out on my own that I realized the value of leftovers, both from an economical standpoint and a creative one. Repurposing yesterday’s meal into something new and appetizing is one of the great tests of a home cook, and many of our favorite dishes the world over originated as just that: a way to disguise and stretch leftover bits of food....
