  • Everyday Gnocchi

    Gnocchi is one of those recipes that mystifies me when I find out that someone thinks that it’s difficult to make, because not only is it really easy (and cheap) to produce, it’s also easy to produce a lot of it; and that’s exactly what we do. It’s common for me to whip out about […]

  • Leek Powder Pierogis

    We are very often products of our upbringing. This recipe is a really fun blend of my mother’s culinary curiosity and my father’s Polish ancestry. Leek powder was borne out of my mother getting sick of throwing out leek greens, so she found a way to use them and even make them keep for a […]

  • Spaghetti and Meatballs

    We’ve been on a pasta kick, and what good is a that if you don’t have spaghetti and meatballs in there somewhere?

  • Chard and Walnut Pesto

    I’m not gonna lie. The conception of this dish resulted from me trying to be totally cheap. Basil is usually overpriced, and lasts for, like, a freakin’ day.

  • Lemon Basil Lasagna

    Sometimes, we like to go all out on a meal. Lasagna is one of those meals. We know we’ve been posting some quick recipes that you can make on a typical weeknight, but this one—this one is for the weekend. Lasagna is a production, especially if you’re making (almost) everything from scratch. For this we […]

  • Chicken Marsala with Fettuccine

    Relatively quick and easy. Complex, rich, savory, and sweet. It’s hard to keep track of how many times we have made this recipe. It’s our standard cream sauce pasta dish, giving the boot to the run-of-the-mill fettuccine alfredo. You won’t find anything out of the ordinary with this recipe. It’s just really really good. Oh, […]

  • Pasta alla Carbonara

    “You don’t need expensive equipment to make pasta. All you need is a rolling pin and a sharp knife, and you’re good to go.” Pasta alla carbonara is one of the easiest in the pasta canon, complete with echoes of the all-American breakfast: bacon and eggs. It is a great dish that finds a great […]
