Stuffed endives with goat cheese, pomegranate arils, and rosemary croutons

One day I’m assembling stuffed endives, arranging them artistically on a platter, and gracefully offering them to my roommate and her dog wearing a bow tie*, and the next day I’m taking covert bites from a block of cheese out of my purse and calling […]

Mediterranean Stuffed Acorn Squash

Mediterranean Stuffed Acorn Squash

I have this poster in my kitchen with the heading “District Harvest: What’s in Season in Washington, DC,” and my house guests often study it when they’re not admiring my collection of half-dead succulents. It’s a beautiful infographic with concentric circles depicting what produce you […]

Pasta Alla Checca with Goat Cheese and Balsamic

August 15, 2018, and my basil plant will live to see another day. In fact, even after at least one near-death experience and some damage inflicted by the neighborhood hooligans (rabbits), my basil is thriving. And don’t get me wrong, this basil has been subjected […]

Basil, Parsley, and Rosemary Pesto

Fried Goat Cheese Salad with Figs and Blueberries

Fried Goat Cheese Salad with Figs and Blueberries

This dish was inspired by a menu item at The Tombs in Washington, DC. I frequented The Tombs in college, but to be honest, it had less to do with the fried goat cheese and more to do with the Dirty Girl Scout. The Tombs […]
