Traveling Italy (Part 2) – Chianti, Siena and Tuscany

There are not many places in the world that I’ve seen like Toscana (Tuscany to us North Americans).  Especially in the summertime, when man, that Tuscan sun is intense – the movie didn’t lie about that one. So after an amazing few days down on the Amalfi Coast, Aimee and I made our way via [...]

Traveling Italy (Part 1) – The Amalfi Coast and Campania

So with a few days of married life under our belts, Aimee and I set off to Italia – a place we’ve long looked forward to traveling together for the sights, architecture, art, bot mostly the food and wine.  Our first stop on the trip was the Amalfi coast, where after loads of recommendations, we decided to [...]

David Chang’s Momofuku Fried Chicken Recipe

Sorry for not posting more lately.  Aimee and I are getting married very soon, and that means that our lives are literally consumed by planning and work with little time to do other things we love….like cook and write here on TFD.  In any case, tonight was one night that I did find some time [...]

Traditional Pad Thai Recipe with Baby Bok Choy – The Classic Thai Standard (Video Post!)

Let’s face it, we all probably know and love Pad Thai in some respect. It’s perhaps the most popular Thai dish in America today, something that you’ll likely try before anything else if you’re not a seasoned Thai food connoisseur. We’ve tinkered with other Thai dishes in the past, such as this Pad Kee Mao [...]

The Ultimate (and Simple) Warm Broccoli Salad Recipe

Totally simple recipe here, nothing too fancy, but some great flavors and easy to prepare.  These are the sorts of recipes that I love to make when I don’t have a lot of time on my hands, because I can literally have them ready in 10 minutes, and it’s a wholesome, satisfying meal.  I add [...]

Zucchini Raisin Bread Recipe

The first time I ever heard of Zucchini bread, I thought is was rather gross sounding, but that was before I tasted it.  You see I’ve never been a huge fan of zucchini, besides in certain French applications like ratatouille.  This recipe was adapted from an old friend who swore by it (and by this, [...]

Guinness Braised Beef Short Ribs Recipe – Last Taste of Winter

This post was co-authored (really the recipe was co-cooked) by @taylorbarstow At some point during the winter, I inevitably will get a serious craving for some delicious and wholesome braised beef short ribs. With winter waning, a few of us on a ‘dudes night’ decided to do something we rarely all do together: cook. It [...]

Ad Hoc Grapefruit Cake Recipe – Delicious idea for Grapefruit!

Grapefruit is the last citrus fruit that I usually think of – it sort of gets lot in the fuzz among the stars: lemons, oranges and limes.  This is unfortunate though, as I absolutely love the flavor of grapefruit, especially when the bitter flavor is mixed with sugar and sweet ingredients.  This cake was a [...]

Julia Child Vichyssoise or Potato Leek Soup Recipe – Simplest Soup Ever

Go ahead, say it: “Vichyssoise” – sounds fancy and French, I know – but for a fancy sounding soup, this one is perhaps the simplest recipe we’ve posted yet. When making Vichyssoise, there are basically 4 ingredients – if you don’t count the salt and pepper (white pepper in this case), plus the cooking process [...]

Homemade Harissa Hot Sauce Recipe – North African Hot Sauce Made with Sun Dried Tomatoes

My introduction to Harissa was with the super spicy version that’s served in falafel and shawarma restaurants like the famous Falafel in Central Square Cambridge. That version is pretty intense, and will really kick you in the ass if you’re not careful. This version is a bit milder, with more of a slow heat the [...]
