After making that egg salad sammie, I was left with an influx of arugula and had to figure out a way to make it count. Which led me to this lovely, spicy and garlicy pesto sauce. A great alternative to the basil pesto we all know and love so much. But it’s always good to [...]

Egg salad is a classic. One of those old trusties that never disappoints. Unless you’re in grade school and your Mom sends you off with an egg salad sandwich for lunch. The horror of unwrapping your lunch and being hit by that all too familiar eggie smell is enough to make any kid want to [...]

Last night was epic. Empire season finale followed by the Broad City season finale. What more could you ask for? Not a whole lot. So naturally some friends and myself got together for a viewing party. I made these twice baked potatoes, roasted a chicken and threw together a little salad. There were also some [...]

In the words of Garfield, “Mondays: Blah. Lasagna: Yay!” Garfield is a cat who gets it. Monday’s are kind of blah. But a good serving of lasagna can turn that all around. And Monday isn’t all that bad when you got this dish in the oven and the new Kendrick album playing on repeat. Really [...]

I am very fortunate to have some wildly talented artists in my family – mainly my mother and sister. And because of this I have a bounty of art that all needs to be hung for the world (or my house guests) to see. Framing can get expensive. But I’ve come up with this little [...]

Cottage cheese pancakes are a staple of my childhood. One of those special morning treats my Mom would bust out every so often. The cottage cheese gives these pancakes a texture like no other. Creamy, silky and light. It might be hard to go back to those buttermilk kinds after you’ve tried these.   Cottage [...]

I’m headed up to Connecticut this weekend. And amidst the single digit weather (it was 3 degrees when I woke up here in Brooklyn this am) my good friend is taking the Penguin Plunge all in the name of raising money for Special Olympics Connecticut.

As a college student I had a handful of signature go-to snacks that I had perfected by senior year. Priorities. Because me and my friends liked to hang out. And sometimes we would get hungry. So knowing what to make at the drop of a hat was always helpful. I had come a long way [...]

Snow days are best for making soup and having a glass of your choice earlier than usual. And playing D’Angelo all day. So when the weather predictors called for 2 feet of snow here in NY last week myself and the rest of NY got over to the grocery store and stocked up on supplies [...]
