Chicken and Egg Salad “Toasts” with Lemon Aioli & Fennel Review


Recipe 30 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Let’s start off by saying this is not a good representation of Deb’s recipe. I failed tragically and what you see here is a fancy chicken salad sandwich…not toast. My husband oohed and ahhhed over it but it really is just a salvage of the…

Fig, Olive Oil and Sea Salt Challah


Recipe 16 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2018 has been a better start for you then you anticipated. I heard in church today that this early part of the year is the most depressing time for many people because all the holiday fun is over, the…

Bananna Bread


Recipe Box Series Okay…I’m excited :) I decided to do a new mini series! I’ll be doing it along side the Resolution Recipe series I’ve been plugging away at for the past…4+ years. Embarrassing. I’m calling this new series the “Recipe Box Series”. I kind of grieve the days of cooking where we wrote down…

Potato Frittata with Feta and Scallions


Recipe 14 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Another delicious morning with this handsome fella.

Baked Ranchero Eggs with Blistered Jack Cheese


Recipe 13 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman This was a fun one for me. I am a big fan of huevos rancheros for breakfast and yet I’ve never really tried to make them myself. My favorite place to get them, funny enough, has been from Ruby’s Diner. I think you may only…

Greens, Eggs, and Hollandaise


Recipe 12 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Another Saturday another breakfast! This is recipe number 2 so far that has called for a cheese cloth.

Big Breakfast Latkes

Chocolate Chip Brioche Pretzels


Recipe 6 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman I am not going to lie…this recipe killed me in so many ways. I earn my novice status with many recipes but my badge should be gold after making these. I know they may look like pretzels and they may even look good to the…

Ode to the Egg: Benedict Style


I have always loved eggs benedict. I think it’s the hollandaise sauce that really brings the whole thing together and is the “something different” needed to make it more special than a typical egg dish…ah…love it. My family use to make it on Sundays for brunch when we were in the mood to work on…
