GREENEST GREEN JUICE

GREENEST GREEN JUICE // The Kitchy Kitchen
The farthest I’ve gotten with a juice cleanse is about 8 hours. Lame, I know, but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that juice is just a delicious breakfast and snack for me. There’s something about a glass of green juice that just revives. I love this blend for all of the bright herbs, refreshing cucumber, and a hint of […]

GREEN GODDESS SALAD + DRESSING

GREEN GODDESS SALAD + DRESSING // The Kitchy Kitchen
Green Goddess Dressing, though considered a token of late 1970’s cuisine, is actually from the 20’s.  You can tell because of the abundance of tarragon, anchovies and mayonnaise.  The only thing that doesn’t feel 1920’s about it is the absence of a hard boiled egg.  I swear 90% of recipes from the 1920s involve a hard boiled egg. A digression! […]

S’MORES ICE BOX CAKE

S’MORES ICE BOX CAKE // The Kitchy Kitchen
This is on of my most favorite desserts ever. It’s a sliceable s’more. Layers of rich chocolate ganache, whipped cream, toasted marshmallow and graham crackers come together in glorious show stopping glory. It’s so impressive looking, if a little messy, and very easy to make. Plus, I get to bust out marshmallow fluff, which makes me feel ten years old […]

CAULIFLOWER / BRIE SOUP

32-2
This soup is just soooo luxurious. Like, driving in a Bugatti with a scarf whipping in the wind luxurious, or skiing in Gstaad, or maybe it’s as luxurious as you’d expect a soup with brie in it to be.  But it also manages to be so simple.  It’s under 10 ingredients, done in 45 minutes, and if you pop a […]

THE HUDSON

THE HUDSON // The Kitchy Kitchen
North of Manhattan lies the Hudson River Valley, home to historic estates, granite cliffs, former factory towns, orchards, undulating farmland, and a hundred other things worth seeing. For this rich, herb-fueled take on the Manhattan, the Hudson River Valley seemed like the perfect touchstone for its name. INGREDIENTS 2 1/2 ounces rye whiskey 1/2 ounces amaro averna 1/2 ounces benedictine […]

SPAGHETTI + MEATBALLS + MARTINIS

SPAGHETTI + MEATBALLS + MARTINIS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Movie-wise, romance-wise, comedy-wise, and cookie-wise, The Apartment is one of the best movies ever made. Billy Wilder and IAL Diamond are at their sharp, witty best with the dialog. The scenes just sizzle and snap until you realize the camera hasn’t moved for a full minute and here you are still entirely engrossed. The story follows your classic everyman underdog, […]

ZUCCHINI PASTA WITH PESTO

ZUCCHINI PASTA WITH PESTO // The Kitchy Kitchen
Don’t you just love it when something good for you tastes wonderful? Yes, I added cheese and olive oil, but still, baby steps. Zucchini “pasta” has been a pasta sub forever, and with good reason.  It’s tender/toothsome quality, plus its absorbency makes it a great stand in for pasta. The thing to look out for though, is over cooking it. […]

TOASTED COCONUT BLACKOUT DOUGHNUTS

TOASTED COCONUT BLACKOUT DOUGHNUTS // The Kitchy Kitchen
These are some classic, fried-dough style doughnuts. Or is it donuts? I’ve never really understood if the extra “u-g-h” was a stylistic choice, or an actual differentiation, but, as with most pedantic questions, does it really matter? Toasted coconut adds warmth to the rich, dark, and I’ll say it – bitter – dark chocolate. For some reason “bitter” turns people […]

BANANA PUDDING WITH CARDAMOM

BANANA PUDDING WITH CARDAMOM // The Kitchy Kitchen
Sometimes simple is best, and it doesn’t get more nostalgically simple than banana pudding. The truth is, you could make this with instant pudding and store bought whipped cream, but COME ON…make it from scratch once, and revel in the perfection of it. Cardamom, the key spice in Chai, is beautiful with banana, and mixed with simple eggy custard, crisp […]

THE PINEAPPLE SMASH

PINEAPPLE SMASH // The Kitchy Kitchen
Smokey mezcal and chipotle are balanced out by rum and pineapple honeyed sweetness. This is sort of like a “south of the border” old fashioned, with some island vibes thrown in.  INGREDIENTS 2 chunks pineapple angostura bitters 1 big pinch chipotle powder 2 ounces mezcal 1 ounce rum 1 teaspoon maraschino DIRECTIONS Muddle the pineapple, bitters, and chipotle in the […]
