Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
This homemade chicken noodle soup is getting me through winter. Making it has become a sort of ritual—I roast a chicken every Sunday and use the leftovers for soup. There’s something so grounding about a pot of stock simmering on the stove. Life is chaos everywhere but at least we have homemade chicken broth!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
This recipe was five years in the making. I took my first stab at chocolate chocolate chip zucchini bread on a whim after tinkering around in my kitchen. It turned out amazing but then I lost my recipe and all of my subsequence attempts failed miserably. I got discouraged and ended up stepping away.
Lemon Thyme Tart
It’s so strange to observe how I’m marking time during this pandemic. I’m so much more aware of how the presence or absence of ritual defines my life. Case in point: This is the first recipe I’ve developed in over a year. That seems crazy to me, but the truth is I just haven’t had the time/will/energy/bandwidth to play in the kitchen.
I’m obsessed with labneh. Obsessed. I literally find a way to put it in/on anything. To me, it’s everything I love about yogurt, cream cheese, and crème fraiche. I love to add a spoonful to my salads, or enjoy it as a snack with fruit and honey, or with chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh herbs.
Allow me to introduce you to my house cocktail, the Rosemary Paloma. It’s a refreshing summer drink featuring my booze of choice: tequila. Besides being delicious and easy to make, what I love about it is that it’s not too sweet. The rosemary simple syrup adds a subtle savory note to this citrusy cocktail.
