BURRATA RAVIOLI WITH PEA PESTO + PROSCIUTTO

DSC_7775-2
These are three of my favorite ingredients, all mixed together, and the time it takes to make fresh ravioli is totally worth it.  I like to make the ravioli on a lazy afternoon and then freeze them so I can rustle them up whenever I’m yearning for cheese stuffed pasta (which is every minute of every day, but whatever). The […]

OHIO LEMON PIE // The Kitchy Kitchen
My favorite cookbook in my entire vintage cookbook collection (it’s not anything too impressive, but I’ve accumulated about 2 dozen at this point) is The Shaker Cookbook: Not by Bread Alone by Caroline B. Piercy. Here’s the thing about A LOT of vintage cookbooks: they weren’t edited that well.  Sometimes you’ll find that the recipes haven’t been tested at all, […]

This is the salad equivalent to frozen grapes: super refreshing, your last chance against a hot summer day. The cool fruit combined with refreshing mint is enough, but with a bright honey/lime combo and some habanero, it’s exactly what you need when you’re sweating buckets. This works with literally ANY other fruit, by the way, so get creative with it!  […]

PALEO PECAN TURTLES

PALEO PECAN TURTLES // The Kitchy Kitchen
Bet you didn’t think you could have a refined sugar free, vegan chocolate treat – but here we are with one of my favorites: chocolate turtles. Sweet and rich, with a bit of sharp depth from the dark chocolate, and crunch from the pecans, these little bites immediately put a smile on your face. Pecans are the classic, but feel […]
