Creamy Goat Cheese and Roasted Asparagus Carbonara

March 12, 2014
Goat Cheese & Asparagus Carbonara

So, yeah. I’ve made this twice this in two weeks. And both times, I would’ve happily cage-fought a 12-ft tall land-sharkzilla for the leftovers. (Or a close second, a 6-ft-2 Jason.) Because it’s THAT amazing. I’m already a carbonara fiend – pasta tossed with a creamy, peppery sauce made with eggs, Parmesan, and bacon. It’s [...]

Goat Cheese & Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Who else went overboard and bought nearly 6lbs of asparagus because it was $.88/lb? Welcome to the hoarder club! Who else has eaten roasted asparagus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner pretty much every day? Welcome to the we-clearly-don’t-understand-hoarding club! Cheap asparagus means two things: 1) Spring is just around the corner (and seriously, could it [...]

Blood Orange, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad

How excited am I that blood oranges are back? That excited ^. Also? This excited: Last spring, we planted a tiny blood orange tree in the backyard. And somehow it survived. We won’t let any blooms go to fruit this year but next year, man. Next year. Besides margaritas, one of my other favorite things [...]

Gyro-Stuffed Bell Peppers with Quino & Feta

When Jason and I met, I was living in this tiny, dirt cheap apartment with my fluffy white kitty, Shasta. Shasta & I had accidentally stumbled across the greatest deal in the entire city. We had million dollar houses, the city’s nicest park, running trails, a golf course, and gorgeous green space at our front [...]

Goat Cheese & Black Pepper Biscuits

We all deal with stress, disappointment, and defeat in different ways. At least I assume we do. Unless you tell me that you, too, head straight for your kitchen to fry up all the bacon and chop all the onions in the house. While knocking back a couple goat cheese biscuits. To each her own, [...]

Spicy Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salsa

This salsa is what happens when you cut open what feels like a perfectly ripe avocado and find… well, not a perfectly ripe avocado. A perfectly ripe avocado isn’t grey inside. Dinner was supposed to be a fantastically delicious repeat of Salmon with Strawberry-Avocado Salsa. Studies have shown that you can’t have “fantastically delicious” with [...]

The Fig Burger

A burger so nice that last week, we had it twice. In a row. Seriously. Fancy burgers have been a thing around here for a while (Exhibit A. And Exhibit B.) but this one is my new summer favorite. Do you like figs? And caramelized onions? And wine? And burgers that you have to transfer [...]

Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers with Honey and Bacon

My little brother’s exasperation with/at goat cheese is the stuff that family jokes and big-sister-harassment are made of. “Goat cheese? Like from a real goat? Is that natural? Can a goat make cheese?” [makes dramatic "icky face," waves off delicious food with goat cheese] But I still love him. And even though my mom didn’t [...]
