Liberty London Girl’s Chicken Pie

“Making a large pie can seem daunting, but wonderfully, it’s actually rather simple, requiring nothing more complicated than a standard roasting pan,” says Sasha Wilkins of Liberty London Girl. She shared this recipe from her newest book Friends Food Family: Essential Recipes, Tips, and Secrets for the Modern Hostess with us during her US book […]

Slow-Cooker Chicken & White Bean Chili

We finally (!!!) just had our first semi-chilly day in Austin, and you should have seen our team… Decked out in scarves, boots, and turtlenecks, you would have thought we were experiencing an arctic blast, when it was actually just under 60 degrees. It’s amazing how the changing temps cause such a shift in what I’m […]

Sausage, Cherry & Sage-Stuffed Turkey Breast

“Though a whole roasted bird is traditional, l think that a turkey breast rolled up with stuffing is hands-down the most flavorful way to serve the bird on Thanksgiving. I ask my butcher to debone and butterfly the turkey so that the hard part’s done before I bring it home. If you’d like, prepare the […]

How to Cook Perfect Quinoa Every Time

I don’t know what I ate before quinoa became a permanent pantry staple of mine. It sounds cliche given how much quinoa has been dubbed a “trendy” food, but if you ask me, the grain is here to stay. I usually make a big batch at the beginning of the week (practically with my eyes […]

Sicilian-Style Zucchini Spaghetti

I know, I know… I can’t stop talking about my new addiction to spiralizing (as shown here and here.) And we really only have one person to blame thank: when Ali of Inspiralized sent me one of her genius inspiralizers to try out, it was so simple to use that I started creating noodles out of […]

Mango & Cucumber Noodle Salad

Have I mentioned that I finally have a spiralizer in my life? I don’t know why I waited so long (especially since I’ve been pinning zucchini noodle “pastas”  for months now) but ever since I added this model to my kitchen gadget collection, I’ve been making noodles out of, well, just about anything that can become a […]

A Taste of Persian Cuisine

What do my mom’s salmon chraimeh, Camille’s mom’s almond bread and Morgan’s mom’s chicken parm all have in common? Besides for the fact that they’re delicious beyond belief, each one is the kind of dish that can only be learned firsthand. In their cases, a written recipe in a book doesn’t compare to standing beside the cook herself and hearing […]
