LA SENORITA COCKTAIL: A VERY GOOD DRINK INDEED

DSC_1054
Smokey yet feminine, tart but sweet, my la señorita cocktail is all about balance, and a great introduction to those wary of mezcal.  Imagine tequila’s smokey cousin: that’s mezcal. It can seem a little rough around the edges if you’ve never had it before, but served in a floral paloma-esque cocktail it goes down so easily. INGREDIENTS 1 ounce fresh […]

RAW CARROT SALAD

RAW CARROT SALAD // The Kitchy Kitchen
Texture is one of the most transformative aspects of an ingredient. Make it tender by slow cooking and concentrating the sugars, frying until crisp until savory and crunchy, or serving thin and raw with a clean, fresh snap. Today, I’m going with the latter, keeping the carrot salad light and spoonable. The balance of heat with creamy yogurt with the […]

DOUGHNUT CAKE

DOUGHNUT CAKE // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
Doughnuts are already over the top – it’s fried dough covered in sugar after all – but I wanted to see if I could make doughnuts OTTT (over the top…top), so here they are in cake format. This is one of those things you didn’t know you wanted until you saw it staring back at you, and I can’t help […]

PALEO BOLOGNESE

PALEO BOLOGNESE // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
Food should be nourishing and delicious. It sounds simple, right? With sweets especially, it can be so hard to find treats that are as good to eat as they are for you. My friend Laurel, the baker behind the grain-free and refined-sugar-free (and sometimes vegan) goodness known as Sweet Laurel Bakery, has shared some of her simplest and most satisfying […]

FUNFETTI CROISSANTS

FUNFETTI CROISSANTS // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
Croissants are a breakfast staple and already delicious on their own, but after being so inspired by Union Fare’s whimsical creations, I couldn’t help myself in creating a batch funfetti croissants of my own. It’s very simple to do, and can be made with store bought dough if you’re in a rush. I can’t wait to try this with other […]

SALTED ICED LATTE

SALTED ICED LATTE // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
Ok guys, this is a little vulnerable for me, but…I’m a coffee wuss. I so badly want to love new world style lemon + blueberries syphon coffee, but in my heart of hearts, I’m a French roast girl. I want round, honeyed flavors, like hazelnut and dark chocolate. I don’t want my coffee to be “challenging.”  Imagine the kind of […]

VINTAGE INSPIRED CORN CHOWDER

VINTAGE INSPIRED CORN CHOWER // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
Chowder is one of the oldest recipes in the American culinary canon. Salt pork (or bacon) and potatoes are a must – the rest can be negotiable depending on where you live. American regional cuisine has always been a fascination of mine.  All of those secret gems of recipes, popping up at church picnics and family reunions, are the culinary […]

THE BEE STING

THE BEE STING  // THE KITCHY KITCHEN
I stumbled across this recipe for a batida (meaning a Brazilian cocktail made of fruit juice, cachaca, and a sweetener) in one of my favorite vintage cookbooks, The Gold Cookbook by Louis P. DeGouy, 1947. I love that it’s made with three ingredients, and I love that it tastes like adult lemonade. I think you’ll find The Bee Sting to […]
