Sticky Gochujang-Honey Chicken

What happens when you marinate chicken in gochujang (spicy Korean chili paste), honey, ginger and garlic? Deliciousness, that’s what. Sticky Gochujang-Honey Chicken is our newest weeknight favorite: a little sweet, a lot spicy and just plain tasty.

Chocolate Frangelico Mousse — a Christmas Peek from Cork and Knife

Chocolate frangelico mousse is our favorite way to treat our holiday dinner party guests. Light, fluffy chocolate mousse, flavored with nutty Frangelico liquor, and topped with whipped cream, toasted hazelnuts and chocolate flakes? It must be Christmas.

Stir Fried Farro with Garlicky Kale and Poached Egg

Stir Fried Farro with Garlicky Kale and Poached Egg

Tender stir fried farro, garlicky sautéed kale, and a perfectly poached egg. If that’s not a good breakfast, we don’t know what is. This simple, healthy grain bowl is packed with everything you need to start your day off right. 

Breakfast isn’t typically an ideal meal for slow food. Our modern lives pack our days with tasks demanding attention: we have kids to get to school, work deadlines to meet, errands pulling us in twenty directions. But while a cup of coffee and a quick carbohydrate filler, like a bowl of cereal or piece of toast, may get us up and out of the house quickly, they hardly constitute a satisfying and well-rounded meal. That’s why when we’re able to, dedicating a little more time to a breakfast that actually provides a whammy of flavor, as well as going some way to fulfill those balanced-food-groups and five-a-day promises, is a worthy goal.

Note: This recipe is part of our series with Serious Eats.

Garden Fall Wrapup

Garden Fall Wrapup

It's October, and the bulk of the vegetable garden is finished for the season. Of course, our herbs are still going strong on the deck, and we're still pulling out ripened tomatoes, but the soil beds are now empty. For our first year, we didn't do too badly. Here's a...

Herbed Lamb Burgers with Feta-Yogurt Sauce

Herbed Lamb Burgers with Feta-Yogurt Sauce

For me, lamb is definitely hit or miss. I either really enjoy it or really, really, really don't. There is very little middle ground. If it's too gamey, I don't like it. Overcooked, blech. Undercooked, even worse! Needless to say, I've made some expensive lamb...

Perfect Poached Eggs

Perfect Poached Eggs

Maybe it's just me, but for years I was completely intimidated by the idea of poaching eggs. I could make them pretty much any other way but poaching... um, no.  I  attempted it a few times and ended up with watery egg drop soup. Gag. The thing is, I really...

Kale and Walnut Pesto

Kale and Walnut Pesto

  Today we're making kale and walnut pesto (inspired by The Hop's Kale and Almond Pesto), to go with our Sausage with Creamy Polenta and Kale Walnut Pesto. Even if kale is not your favorite thing, this is a good way to try it because it's so good for you, but also...

Creamy, Soft Polenta

Creamy, Soft Polenta

This polenta is meant to have a soft, porridge-like consistency. We used it for Sausage with Creamy Polenta and Kale Walnut Pesto but it would be great with any kind of stew, as a substitute for mashed potatoes or noodles.   What you're looking for is course,...

Brunch at The Hop. Finally.

I'm embarrassed to admit it but Matt and I have lived in Beacon for over a year and we just made it to The Hop for the first time. It's shameful, I know. If you haven't heard of it,  it's kind of a craft beer mecca, half store, half gastro-pub. They have a tiny bar...

Sausage with Creamy Polenta and Kale Walnut Pesto

Easy scones

What ho, and all that, spiffing readers. I'm being especially upper-crust because I wanted to tell you about the scones I made a couple of weeks ago. Let's take a gander at them first. Have a good look, there you go, feast your eyes.   Alright, that's enough. Put...

The. Best. Mojito.

Does the world need another mojito recipe? Yes. Yes it does, because this one has a little something extra that, in my tipsy, slightly slurred opinion, takes it to the next level of yumminess. And no, I'm not suggesting you buy an expensive, impossible-to-find rum. Or...
