WATERMELON JALAPENO SANGRIA

WATERMELON JALAPENO SANGRIA // The Kitchy Kitchen
I have never met someone who doesn’t like watermelon. If you don’t like watermelon, and want to make yourself known, say hey in the comments…but for some reason I don’t think there will be a lot of you. Watermelon is just so damn good when it’s good. This sangria is simple, and plays on watermelon’s refreshing taste. Mint, lime, and […]

A sophisticated yet simple appetizer shouldn’t be a headache to put together.  I’ve you’ve ever made mac and cheese, this fancy sounding gratin is even simpler.  Make a white sauce, fold in the ingredient, and bake! It’s warm, gooey and absolutely delicious. Try it with cauliflower for a vegetarian version. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS Serves 4 as an appetizer, 2 as a […]

CHEDDAR JALAPEÑO CORN DOGS

DSC_2838-2
Have you ever watched Jeopardy? That’s silly, of course you have. The Before and Afters are some of my favorites, mostly because of their deft wordplay, which usually comes out of the contestant’s mouth in a clunky and self-doubting manner: “What…is…The Sweater Song of Ice and Fire? No? What is…Victoria’s Secret of Nimh? This recipe is kind of a before […]

MAPLE BACON DOUGHNUTS WITH PIG CANDY // The Kitchy Kitchen

FLORAL INSPIRED AFTERNOON TEA

FLORAL INSPIRED AFTERNOON TEA
”The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.” Now, I know we all love Lizzie and Darcy, but honestly, my favorite prideful curmudgeon and the outspoken free spirit that changes him, couple is Eliza and Henry, from My Fair Lady. He is an EPIC chauvinist. Just…next level. I mean, […]

CHICKEN PIE

CHICKEN PIE // The Kitchy Kitchen
Chicken pie makes me think of rainy days, sweaters, and curling up with mom on the couch to watch Jeopardy. This is such a homey, simple dish, and what I love about it is that you can add whatever left overs you like to it: peas, carrots, kale, sausage, cheese, odds and ends of all kinds. This isn’t a super […]

MOJITO POPS

MOJITO POPS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Frozen desserts in the summertime are a must, and it’s hard to think of anything more refreshing than a mojito.  Lime + mint + rum + sugar is such a winning combination.  I decided to have a little fun with it and freeze it, because the only thing more refreshing than a mojito is a mojito popsicle.  Try this with […]

THE BACKYARD COCKTAIL

Spicy, tart, and just a bit herbaceous, this is a refreshing way to serve smokey and rich mezcal. Sort of like a man smoking a cigar in a panama hat and white linen.  Mysterious, masculine, but totally summer ready. INGREDIENTS 3 mint leaves, plus more for garnish 1/2 teaspoon green tabasco 1 ounce mezcal 1/2 ounce chartreuse 1 ounce lime […]

TOMATO JAM GRILLED CHEESE

TOMATO JAM GRILLED CHEESE // The Kitchy Kitchen
Jam and cheese sandwiches are a thing in England, and they ought be a thing here too. You’re basically taking a cheeseboard and putting it between two slices of bread. For this version, I thought it would be fun to play around with tomato jam, especially as they’re just starting to get into season. The jam is lovely and surprising […]

BURRATA WITH STONEFRUIT + CHILI + MINT

BURRATA WITH STONEFRUIT + CHILI + MINT // The Kitchy Kitchen
Burrata is one of my favorite things. It’s up there with brown butter. Basically, if it’s in a dish, it’s somehow improving it, and I must eat it. During the summer, I love pairing this fresh, creamy cheese with bright stone fruit. The acid in the peaches, plums, and nectarines are a fantastic counterpoint to the cheese’s mild sweetness, and […]
