Best Fall Cookbooks 2018

1. Sister Pie – I baked up their hand pies and they were awesome. I love this book! 2. Ottolenghi Simple – I love everything that he cooks. Sometimes I’ll go on Ottolenghi’s Instagram and just stare at his food. I love the sound of a book full of his simplified, easy, weeknight recipes. I can’t wait to cook from this book this over and over and over. 3. Cravings Hungry for More – I love me some Chrissy and I think this book is gonna be my go-to gift this holiday season. 4. Israeli Soul – I’ve never eaten Michael Solomonov’s food. I need to get to Philly at some point, but I’ve cooked a few of his recipes from his last book and they did not disappoint. SO GOOD. 5. A Common Table – I love Cynthia’s recipes and Instagram feed so I’m super excited about this one. The food is Chinese food meets Korean food with a love story in the background—can’t wait. 6. Estela – This book looks so beautiful, as does all of Ignacio Mattos’ food. 7. Carla Hall’s Soul Food – I am here for Carla Hall’s spoonbread and okra soup. I looooove Southern […]

Cheddar Rye Apple Hand Pies

I gotta a new pie book in the mail and I LOVE IT! The world needs more pie, I think. Especially this week (and after last week) lol. Last year, I was in Chicago for work so I decided to take a quick trip to Detroit to visit my brother who had just moved there for a job. And while he was at work, I asked some of you for recommendations and the number one place you cute people told me to visit was Sister Pie. I was super excited. I jumped in his car (he lent me) and drove to Detroit. I drove around, took in the city and then stopped dropped in. The place is vibrant, warm and feels like a place that serves the community. The case was jam-packed with baked goods so I ordered one of everything! When I got this book in the mail, I was pumped. As I was thumbing through the book, lots of things jumped out at me to make, but I settled on these Cheddar Rye Hand Pie Apple Pies because I’ve always wanted to add cheddar to my pie crust and never have. I figured this would be a good […]

10 Cozy Things to Make in October

My favorite month has arrived. October is the month of birthdays in my family. Amelia’s birthday is in a few weeks and she is incredibly excited about her new cake this year. Here’s a lil’ round up of my favorite things to make during the official month of coziness. 1. One-Bowl Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Brown Butter Frosting – I made this on my Insta Stories (see my highlights) and it reminded me how much I love this dang cake. The frosting is like a drug—it is delicious and addicting. And so many of you have made it with rave reviews. It’s honestly a season-must-make. 2. Chorizo-Spiced Pumpkin Pasta – Here me out: the spices in chorizo are worth putting in all the things. And they work wonderfully with pumpkin. This pasta is super easy to throw together and it is so delicious! 3. Cornbread Chicken + Dumplings – I love this dish because the dumplings are my favorite thing ever. They are fluffy and delicious and this uses a rotisserie chicken (if you want it to), which makes it a super easy recipe to make on a weeknight. 4. Asian Pear + Apple Pie – I love Asian pears. […]

Chai-Spiced Apple Skillet Cake

This is the time of year where Los Angeles weather is totally erratic. One day it’ll be 90 degrees and then two days later you’l need a sweater and some hot coffee to get your day started. By now, I know which one I get excited about. I’m currently wearing a sweater so I feel like it’s appropriate to discuss this chai-spiced apple skillet cake with you all. I wanted to provide a recipe that is super easy. Something that you can throw together in a one, two steps max. This skillet cake is it! It’s baked up in a cast iron skillet. If you don’t have a cast iron (I believe it’s a kitchen must-have), you can definitely bake this in a 9-inch cake pan too. I’ve been spending a lot of time writing down fall/autumn/Thanksgiving (yes, T-Day) ideas that I can’t wait to make. This was one of the first things I wrote down on the list. When we baked it up, I was like yes yes yes. It is so simple and easy breezy and is beautiful enough where you’d be proud to put it on a dining room table. Chai-Spiced Apple Skillet Cake Prep Time: 15 […]

Brown Butter Scallops with Sautéed Kale, Shishitos Over a Bed of Polenta

Autumn is days away. DAYS! Which is so incredibly exciting but I’m still trying my hardest to hold onto the last bits of summer and maybe even merge them with this new upcoming season. See: this dish! This meal is inspired by a dish I ate a few weeks ago when I went to Madison, Wisconsin to visit the headquarters of Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove. It was such an incredible experience touring the factories where they make their Sub-Zero refrigeration, Wolf cooking, and new Cove dishwashing appliances while learning all about the brand’s commitment to quality. Their appliances are pieces of art. The craftsmanship and artistry that goes into building each product is truly amazing. Beyond making quality appliances, it was exciting to learn that Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove is also committed to inspiring people to cook and create memorable food experiences. And that’s exactly what happened as we walked through their gorgeous Harvest Haven garden and ate meals in their beautiful barn. They had everything in that pretty garden. Everything from a 600-pound pumpkin to a greenhouse full of vine-ripe tomatoes—it was truly stunning. It was also sort of magical to eat blackberries off of a vine and then […]

10 Cozy Things to Make in September

AHH! September. HOWWW are we here already? I can’t even wrap my head around the idea that Thanksgiving is happening in like three months—make it stop! Time, please stand still! I feel like I say this every single month and it makes me cringe to think about that. Ugh. So here we are. September! It’s a strange month. It’s the month where the season transitions from summer to fall…yet here in LA we’re still dealing with scorching temperatures. So no sweaters for me any time soon. Also, sorry this is coming so late in the month. I was traveling last week and completely forgot that I owe you this riveting round-up post. 1. Vegetarian Bao Buns – These fluffy clouds filled with a mixture of sautéed veggies. They are dreamy and way easier than you could ever imagine. 2. Late-Summer Veggie Bolognese – I posted this last month and it is perfect for this time of year. The bolognese requires a food processor and everything gets chopped up very finely. The sauce is delicious and light. Scoop it over those cauliflower gnocchi everyone and their mom is talking about. 3. Mini Pound Cakes with Labneh Frosting and Roasted Grapes – […]

Crispy AF Waffles with Salted Honey Butter

I’m currently high in the sky on my way back to Los Angeles. I just spent the last few days in Madison, Wisconsin (I loved it there—more to come!). But it’s the weekend time so it’s time to start thinking of what we’re gonna do tomorrow and Sunday morning. And I will personally vouch for these guys. I put this recipe in The Cozy Coloring Cookbook a few years ago (I can’t believe it came out two whole years ago) and realized I have never ever shared it! This recipe was developed by Billy, while I was developing another recipe. Sometimes we work that way. I’ll give him an idea, a jumping off platform, he’ll do the research and begin. And then I’ll work on something else and by the end of our trials we usually have things for the other person to try. And then we tweak and adjust from there. These were inspired by the waffles at Dinette in Los Angeles. Maybe the best waffle I’ve ever had. It’s super crispy and hella sweet (not my favorite aspect of them) and then they’re topped with sea salt and some maple syrup. THEY ARE SO GOOD. We headed down […]
