Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Sunday mornings are generally for sleeping late, coffee and the paper, maybe some football if it’s in season. When we lived in New York Sunday mornings often meant brunch out somewhere as well. It is perfectly acceptable in New York to have brunch at 12 or 1pm meaning there is no rush to get up. […]

Curried Beef Dumplings

Ok fine, one more snack food post, and then I’ll make something healthy. This time I have a good excuse: poker. I had to bring food to a boy’s night poker game and we needed junk food. I was looking to do something interesting and the standard chips n’ dip thing didn’t really get my […]

Year One STL: Billy Goat Chip Company

Dr. Fiance and I moved to St. Louis on July 1, 2010. It is hard to believe that we are coming up on our first anniversary in Missouri. In honor of this first year I am going to be publishing a series of posts about the things that we have come to love about St. […]

Roasted Sweet Potatoes With Orange

Now is the time when I should be cooking all sorts of spring food, purchased from the farmers market, grilling stuff (if I had a grill) and in general being a good example of a seasonal cook. Yesterday however, I got a specific request for our weekly loft dinners: I was asked to make sweet […]

Roasted Asparagus

If whatever you are doing right now is not going to the farmers market to get a pound or so of fresh asparagus, then stop what you are doing right now. Run (do not walk) to the farmers market to buy fresh asparagus. Bring it home, trim off the woody ends and peel away the […]

Gorgonzola Risotto with Peas and Bacon

Dr. Fiance and I were out to dinner with her colleagues the other night and we got onto the subject of rice as a side dish. We all pretty much agreed that the choice of side dish at a restaurant plays as big a part in our choices as the entree, and for the most […]

Chorizo Sliders with Shredded Brussel Sprouts

Chorizo Sliders with Shredded Brussel Sprouts

I have gotten in the habit of ending up at Sanctuaria late nights on the weekend. They have excellent and inventive cocktails and they also serve food late (which is something that St. Louis is sorely lacking). One of the best things on the Sanctuaria menu is the Fritas, which are chorizo sliders. They will […]

Quinoa with Moroccan Winter Squash and Carrot Stew

Quinoa seems to be the in thing to be eating these days. It’s cheap, it’s healthy, and as long as you rinse it first it’s pretty easy to digest. It’s not exactly rice and it’s not exactly cous cous but in a lot of respects it’s like a cross between the two. My first exploration […]

Companion and Niche Blogging Event

Companion and Niche Blogging Event

It’s approaching 9pm last night and I’m in the kitchen attempting to saute shredded brussel sprouts while at the same time keeping an eye on my vegetable soup. This is made slightly difficult because I have the front of the stove half-way open so I can keep an eye on the bruschetta that I have […]

Eggs Jonathan

Aren’t Sunday mornings the bomb? Snow softly falling outside, NFL games on in the afternoon, and you (being the smart cookie that you are) made sure to lay in supplies the day before so that you don’t have to go outside. Eggs Florentine is one of Dr. Fiance’s favorite brunch treats, and since she’s been […]
