Oven Risotto with Tuscan Kale Pesto

Spring doesn’t last long here in Austin—whether the days are brisk or balmy, we all rush out on Saturday mornings to soak up as much as we can before things start heating up. We’re richly rewarded for getting up early too-market stalls are flush with tender, delectable spring greens, lettuces, sweet crunchy carrots, and the […]

Broiled Teriyaki Salmon

Maybe it’s because this preggers girl is having sushi withdrawals, but lately, I’ve been craving lots of light, healthy fish dishes with spicy Asian flavors. Inspired by the teriyaki-glazed salmon I’ve ordered at more than one great restaurant, I set out to recreate my own version in a dinner party-worthy entrée that’s easy to prep at home […]

My Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes

Guess what? I finally have a slow-cooker in my life! Apparently I dropped enough hints, because my mom and my mother-in-law each got us this beauty for Christmas (yes, we returned one), and my favorite hobby of the new year has been testing out recipes that I can throw in the cooker in the morning… then reap the […]

Linguine with Kale & Caramelized Onions

For some, it’s online shopping, for others, it’s their boxed set of Lost DVD’s… I, personally, get more than a tiny bit obsessive about new cookbooks (seriously, it’s a problem.) Over the holidays, I literally couldn’t stop reading At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen, the new vegetarian cookbook by chef Amy Chaplin. The mouthwatering photos, nourishing and simple […]

From Camille’s Kitchen :: Brown Butter Pumpkin Pasta

As much as I love experimenting with new recipes and innovative flavors, there’s something about the winter months that just calls for the comforting foods and familiar flavors that I associate with the holidays. Think about how you feel when you come in from the cold and are handed a steaming mug of spicy cider, or bite […]

Our Dia de los Muertos Menu

Yesterday, we shared the vibrant Dia de los Muertos bash we threw with Veuve Clicquot, and today I’m dishing up the delicious recipes and sweet treats that we paired with our bubbly. I love any excuse to celebrate, and a Dia de los Muertos party just might become an annual tradition after this sunny afternoon spent with beautiful flowers, great food, and lots of Clicquot in hand to […]

Pumpkin Spice Tacos

The fervor with which people rush to Starbucks to have their first Pumpkin Spice Latté of the season has become almost cliché; this year our neighborhood store launched it earlier than ever, and I observed customers actually sweating in the still-90 degree heat while they savored their first spicy sips. Even to a non-flavored coffee gal like […]

Tuesday Tastings :: Turkey Koftas with Zucchini Ribbons & Chimichurri

Over the weekend, we had a few friends over to jump in the pool and fire up the barbecue, and all of a sudden I remembered why May is my favorite month of the year. There’s something so thrilling about an entire summer stretching ahead, with Memorial Day cookouts and lazy days by the pool […]

Tuesday Tastings :: Fish Tacos with Avocado Crema

Do you guys have a Super Bowl food tradition? Maybe a chili bar with all the toppings, burgers on the grill, or that perennial football favorite, chicken wings? If I had my pick of all the traditional game day grub, I’d personally pass on the greasiness and go straight for the TACOS – that perfect […]

The Super Foodie :: Roasted Sunchoke Soup

Jerusalem Artichokes — also known as sunchokes — are one of the vegetables I get most excited about when Fall comes, and in the next few weeks they’ll reach their peak. They’re so delicious when roasted with a little olive oil and sea salt, and when I have time to spend in the kitchen, they […]
