Moist Herby Turkey

This moist herby turkey recipe took several years to perfect. It’s juicy, moist, and everything a turkey should be. Now I’m giving it to you.

Tres Leches Crème Brûlée Cheesecake

You probably don’t know this about me: I’m a baker. Not professionally, and I enjoy all types of cooking, but I have a special place in my heart for experimenting with and creating baked goods (though I’m always up for making something from a favorite recipe). I’ve been experimenting with cakes lately. I look up…

The Best Food Ever | Italy

It’s very possible that if I was to choose my favorite cuisine, it would be Italian. What’s not to love? There’s pasta, pastries, gelato, cotoletta, croquette, and mozzarella.

Read the World Wrap-Up | India

When I think of India—especially now, after reading the literature and eating the food—I think of aromatic spices and colors, conquering sultans and rajas, sumptuous palaces and temples. I think of gold and jewels and steamy jungles. I think of a faraway world that’s perhaps not nearly as far away as I’d thought.

Rouladen | Germany

In order to really experience Germany this month (as much as a person can from across an ocean), I decided to explore German cuisine. When you think of German food, do you think of Bratwurst and sausage? Well you should. Those Germans are all about their sausage. But they’re also about more, such as rouladen….

Little Lizzies

They must’ve turned out pretty well because I won the overall…

Zucchini Lasagna with Mushrooms

I didn’t wake up this morning wondering how I could contribute further to the destruction of authentic Italian cuisine, I swear, but opportunities can’t be wasted. I was asked to whip up a batch of healthy(er) lasagna using zoodles instead of pasta (because we have a buttload of zucchini from the garden). I remembered this…

Kale and Walnut Pesto

I know what you’re thinking: How did I get so lucky to receive a blog post from Allison two days in a row!? You obviously lead a blessed life. That, and I like cooking. Today, I decided to bastardize the traditional Italian sauce, pesto (don’t tell my sister-in-law) because we have a ton of kale,…

What to Eat Now

Like most human beings, I’m interested in food. Who’s not? But I’m even more interested in healthy delicious food. No, the two aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, Time magazine’s What to Eat Now focuses on food that is both delicious and healthy. This 112-page book is separated into three section: the kitchen, the body, and the…
