S’MORES LATTE

THE S'MORES LATTE // The Kitchy Kitchen
Toronto is one of my favorite food cities. The combination of myriad cultural references with youthful exuberance leads to some very fun, very delicious surprises. Enter Sweet Jesus […], the facetiously named ice cream shop that also specializes in comically over the top coffee drinks. More is more is more here. The S’mores Latte is a regular latte, topped with a […]

BAKED CLAMS ELIZABETH

BAKED CLAMS ELIZABETH // The Kitchy Kitchen
This is perfect little bite before a meal: warm, savory, and unexpected, it gets your palette working and your face grinning before you even get to the table.  The combination of fresh herbs with aged cheese is fantastic with the smokey, briny flavor of the clams. If you’ve never opened a clam by hand before, have your local fishmonger show […]

QUINOA “RICE” PUDDING

QUINOA COCONUT PUDDING // The Kitchy Kitchen
Rice pudding is one of my favorite comfort food desserts. In France, riz au lait is just as much an art form for grandmas as knitting or lacemaking. The texture must be yielding and tender, the flavor full and mildly sweet, and usually a swirl of thin caramel crests the top. I wanted to create a “weekday” version of this […]

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 […]

CHICKEN TENDERS // MOM MONDAY

CHICKEN TENDERS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Many of my girlfriends and family are fun, awesome, and fabulous young moms, and though I’m still a few years away from little ones of my own, the idea of “mom friendly” dishes has popped up more than once.  I was a pretty open minded eater as a little kid, but my brother on the other hand…ketchup and brown stuff […]

FRUIT + CHAMOMILE CREAM WITH CRUSHED TOFFEE

FRUIT + CHAMOMILE CREAM WITH CRUSHED TOFFEE // The Kitchy Kitchen
You’re welcome. I know that might be a bold way to open this, but for real, get ready for your new favorite summer dessert.  I’m one of those people who can’t say “no” to dessert under any circumstances, so when I’m waddling away from the BBQ buffet, stuffed to the gills with ribs, or burgers, or whatever else I just […]

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 […]

CARROT COCONUT SOUP WITH MOLE-ESQUE SAUCE

CARROT COCONUT SOUP WITH MOLE-ESQUE SAUCE // The Kitchy Kitchen
While visiting Mexico City we made a stop off at Puebla, a smallish colonial town that is famous for three things: the battle of cinch de mayo, chiles en nogada, and mole.  Holy moly the mole (sorry). Mole is a bit legendary in central Mexico: created by nuns in a poblano convent out of odds and ends in their kitchen […]

BERRY CITRUS PAVLOVA

BERRY CITRUS PAVLOVA
It’s Pav time!  Pav, for the uninitiated/un-Antipodean, means pavlova, created to honor Anna Pavlova’s famous tutu on her trip down under.  Kiwis and Aussies alike will have crocodile dundee level knife fights over who actually created it (just kidding, it’s actually a koala thunderdome), but in the end it doesn’t matter much, because we’re all too busy eating it to […]
