BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUFFLE

BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUFFLE // The Kitchy Kitchen
This isn’t an airy, light soufflé that floats off the table. This is a a savory, rich, cheesy dish with a bit of levity.  The extra puff from the eggs saves it from being too decadent, and creates a delicious foundation for these classic flavors. If you don’t want to whip these together at the last minute, no worries. Just […]

PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE MUFFINS // The Kitchy Kitchen
You’re obsessed. It’s ok, so is the person next to you. And that person over there.  Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yep, other than fall TV, I can’t think of a better harbinger of the change of the seasons.  Few things say SUMMER IS OVER like a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Here’s the thing though…I’m not big on them.  I like my coffee […]

BEER STEAMED MUSSELS

BEER STEAMED MUSSELS  // The Kitchy Kitchen
Steaming shellfish is one of the easiest, quickest meals you can put together. With a little prep, you can have it ready to eat in under fifteen minutes. And the combinations are practically endless: combine white wine/dry vermouth/beer/broth with onion/leek/shallots and clams/mussels/ shellfish, and then finish with basil/cilantro/parsley.  A little bit of lemon, garlic, and butter are always a good […]

BROWN BUTTER SEA SALT POPCORN BALLS

BROWN BUTTER SEA SALT POPCORN BALLS // The Kitchy Kitchen
These are a classic halloween treat that seems to be met with groans: “They’re handing out popcorn balls?” But you know what? They’re super delicious.  Sort of like rice krispie treats made with popcorn instead. My version is super simple, just with the added flavor of browned butter and sea salt, but these are fantastic to fold in fun extras.  […]

MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE CALAVERA CUPCAKES

MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE CALAVERA CUPCAKES // The Kitchy Kitchen
About three weeks before my birthday, I would reach for my mom’s copy of “The Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Book” and start thinking.  Was it going to be a Koala cake? Maybe an above ground swimming pool cake? What about this pink castle, with ice cream cones as the turrets? My mom did not go to culinary school, none […]

VEGAN CHOCOLATE SHAKE

VEGAN CHOCOLATE SHAKE // The Kitchy Kitchen
A chocolate milkshake is a classic indulgence. Rich, creamy, and what other dessert can you thoughtfully sip? To create a light (and let’s be real, metabolism appropriate) chocolate shake, I mixed the ice cream and switched in frozen bananas, sweetened it with maple syrup for richness, and used hazelnut milk for a subtle nutella-esque decadence.  It’s real damn good. Just […]

WALNUT HERB PESTO WITH CRUDITES

WALNUT HERB PESTO WITH CRUDITES // The Kitchy Kitchen
I have a rule about hosting parties: 3 to 1.  For every one dish I need to serve ala minute (anything hot, or put together right before serving) I have three make ahead dishes.  This could be a cheese board, brownies, simple crostini, or, in this case, crudités.  Crudités is a classic French appetizer made of raw (or quickly blanched) […]

ROASTED VANILLA GRAPEFRUIT MIMOSAS

ROASTED VANILLA GRAPEFRUIT MIMOSAS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Mimosas are the best breakfast cocktails: refreshing, crisp, and filled with bubbles. It’s the perfect antidote to all of those syrup-laden carbs and quiches you inhaled only moments before. Mimosas are also a really easy recipe to play around with.  It’s basically an ounce or two of citrus juice mixed with sparkling wine. The only thing to balance is that […]

SWEET CORN SUCCOTASH GAZPACHO

SWEET CORN SUCCOTASH GAZPACHO // The Kitchy Kitchen
Being a native west coaster, I didn’t actually know that succotash was a real thing, until I came across it on a menu. I had only known it as part of Daffy Duck’s signature exclamation, and it was such a lyrical sounding word, like Timbuktu or Rancho Cucamonga, that I just put it in the same category of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I […]
