Breaded Cod With White Wine Marinade

When it comes to marinades, I firmly believe that seafood takes the cake in the flavor department. They are top notch when it comes to soaking flavors in, all the way to the core, so that every bite is perfect. Cod is especially good because as it cooks, the surface breaks apart and all the marinade juice left on the ...

Bomb-tastic Balsamic Shrimp Salad

Before I start this recipe, I just need to say that I hope my efforts are greatly appreciated. My roommate and my fiance had to spend two weeks walking into random balsamic vinegar clouds and choking as I tested this recipe. Over and over again I heard the same woeful tale of what it was like to be struck in the eye by a ...

Broccoli and Red Pepper Frittata

When I was younger, and more of a hipster, I couldn't understand the obsession with brunch. Women in their late-twenties and early-thirties raved about this institution of sisterhood. Characters on TV spoke about brunch as if it were a sacred part of the weekend, not unlike observing the Sabbath. And when I was fifteen, home ...

Zucchini and Tomato Galette With Parmesan

I'll be honest, here: I had no idea what galette was until about six months ago. My younger sister, a culinary arts major, was at the kitchen counter making what seemed to be a strange-looking pizza. It had big slices of tomato on it, and lots of thyme and spices that I'd never seen on a pizza before. "Why are you folding ...

PB&J Green Smoothie

The mighty smoothie has never been more popular than it has been the last few years. Between berry bowls and green smoothie detoxes and acai mixtures, it's everywhere. You can't get on Instagram without seeing a Californian post their daily dose of blended fruits (not hating, just jealous). Man cannot live on them alone, but ...

Salmon In Foil With Mustard Honey Glaze

It may seem strange that an Alaskan-based food writer would go almost an entire year into her blog and not post a salmon recipe. Although I eat salmon all the time, in many different forms, I guess it just didn't occur to me to post something about it. But the other day, I realized that most people don't have the privilege to ...

A Basic Bruschetta

I adore bread. Although I've adapted some recipes on this blog to be lower carb, I try not to think about the c-word while I'm eating (no, not that c-word). I am a firm believer that bread is the most important meal of the day, and it should be eaten whenever possible. So it should come as some surprise that, until this ...
