Boulettes

with 2 comments

Boulettes (North African style) might be my new favorite food.  In fact, I enjoyed this meal so much that I might break my self-imposed rule—I try not to cook meat for myself unless I’m having guests over—and make them.  A new friend invited me over to his cool, Architectural Digest-style apartment to eat these tiny meatballs on Sunday night.  I didn’t watch him make the sauce, but I know that he added bright, stewed cherry tomatoes and that he was missing a few of the spices. Despite these missing ingredients (definitely turmeric and maybe even saffron), these boulettes were fan.tast.ic.

Elizabeth Olsen + Bon Appetit

leave a comment »

As it turns out, Elizabeth Olsen might be more of a foodie than I am. She travels with her own seasonings (sea salts to be specific), has attempted to butcher her own lamb, keeps a warm spot in her heart for bolognese at Bar Pitti, and has a similar affection for/fascination with Eric Ripert. Take me to Il Buco, Lizzie; I am great company.

Wit & Delight’s Rigatoni w/ Kale & Prosciutto

with one comment

How amazing and delicious does this recipe look?  I will be buying italian sausage and chopped pancetta from the grocery store this weekend to store in my freezer for hearty winter recipes.  Will have to whip this recipe up on a Friday night during finals to impress myself.

Daily Dose: 10-31 {Happy Halloween}

leave a comment »

Happy Halloween everyone!  I hope your day is filled with candy and friends and ghoulish gin buckets.  I will be wearing a giant dice costume for the second time this week/weekend–I put in too much effort to toss it after one wear.  And now for something orange and delicious-a Barefoot Contessa Mac & Cheese recipe.  I’d love to try this recipe soon….maybe I’ll half it in order to justify making it.

Roasted Asparagus and Chanterelle Fricassée

leave a comment »

And on Wednesdays I post recipes.  First up – this delicious roasted asparagus and chanterelle mushrooms recipe I found on Roost, my new favorite food blog.  I will definitely be taking a trip (or multiple trips) to Fairway, Citerella, Agata & Valentina–all my old haunts for groceries–to pick up healthy foods and to bask in the fall produce.  Though, I think asparagus is a spring vegetable.  Maybe I should have gone with this aromatic roasted root vegetable medley

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”
