CHIPOTLE VEGGIE BURGER

CHIPOTLE VEGGIE BURGER // The Kitchy Kitchen
Sofrito, depending on where you are, is the base of many many dishes. Typically onion, fat, and a couple of other ingredients, it provides the foundation for other flavors to be layered.  For the base of these veggie burgers, I used an Ecuadorian style sofrito, with onion, toasted garlic, tomatoes, cumin, and cilantro.  The result is a rich and flavorful […]

S’MEACHES PIE

S'MEACHES PIE // The Kitchy Kitchen
S’Mores + Peaches, known as S’meaches […] around here, are sort of a Kitchy Kitchen staple.  I make a ridiculous amount  of them every summer, and actually posted a photo on instagram recently.  A follower commented “this should be a pie!” and immediately I thought “YES. YES IT SHOULD.” So here we are with a fresh peach pie, cuddled in a […]

ADULT ICED TEA

ADULT ICED TEA // The Kitchy Kitchen
Uh oh, dangerous drink coming at you.  Every time I’ve sipped this drink myself, or handed one to a friend, it is gone in a matter of seconds.  It’s light, refreshing, and tastes exactly like iced tea.  The only problem? It’s super boozey, so please try to sip slowly. This is the perfect hot weather drink that even gin haters […]

BRISKET BANH MI BURGER

BRISKET BAHN MI BURGER // The Kitchy Kitchen
The Bahn Mi is one of my favorite sandwiches.  Rich grilled meat topped with fresh vegetables, surrounded by a French loaf with mayo and hot sauce – beautiful.  So why not take these same flavors and try them with a burger?  I love the fattiness of brisket with the fresh, crisp flavors of raw carrot, cucumber, and cilantro.  Enjoy! INGREDIENTS […]

MARY-GARITA // The Kitchy Kitchen
Want the brunch refreshment of a bloody mary with the laid back afternoon vibes of a margarita? You’re in luck then, because I give you, the Marygarita.  Bloody Maria’s are no new thing, but I love the sweet / tart lime punch in a margarita especially with tequila, so I took my favorite aspects of each drink and combined them […]

THE GRILLED EVERYTHING BURGER // VIDEO

THE GRILLED EVERYTHING BURGER // The Kitchy Kitchen
Because why not?  You’re already adding smokey seared loveliness to the burger, why not add it to everything on top of the burger as well? This idea is super simple, and so is the execution.  Feel free to add your own bells and whistles to this subtle twist on a classic.  Also, butter the bun. You’re welcome. Note: If you […]

GLAZED DOUGHNUT ICE CREAM

GLAZED DOUGHNUT ICE CREAM // The Kitchy Kitchen
Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?  “Why?” You might ask. “Why would you do this?” My response, “Because it was there.” I get ideas for recipes from all kinds of creative corners, and sometimes, it’s as basic as “let’s mix it together!” This has become my most successful recipe creating technique by far. I just put together two things […]

ALMOND LAVENDER BOURBON MILK PUNCH

ALMOND LAVENDER BOURBON MILK PUNCH // The Kitchy Kitchen
Lavender is one of my favorite flavors. It’s like rosemary’s sexier, more refined sister. It’s earthy and minty, and just a bit floral. Plus it’s so damn soothing.  It’s like a Sade or Rhye song in scent form. And who knew it was so delicious when combined with almond milk and bourbon?  I was at an event for Good Eggs, […]

FLAG CAKE

FLAG CAKE // The Kitchy Kitchen
When I was in Montana visiting my fiancé’s  family, I came across something I had never seen before: A bear steering a speedboat across a lake, his family in the back, the USA colors flying in the breeze, and a sober, concentrated look resting on his brow in oils on canvas. I had never seen a speedboating bear with such […]

APPLE MINT SANGRIA

APPLE MINT SANGRIA // The Kitchy Kitchen
I feel like mint gets a bad rap as a flavor, but it’s one of my favorites.  It’s not just a garnish, or something intended for an ice cream cone; mint can be earthy, mint can be subtle, mint can be everything you thought it couldn’t, because the herb mint is so so sooooo different than mint flavoring. Imagine the […]
