IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT: ROAD TRIP SNACKS

The road trip movie, the romantic comedy, and the “will they or won’t they” movie were all originated by one man, in one movie, Frank Capra, the director of It Happened One Night.

DRIED APRICOT + MASCARPONE TART

DRIED APRICOT + MASCARPONE TART // The Kitchy Kitchen
I love recipes like this. It looks super fancy, but is actually pretty simple, and once you know how to make it, you can create a million different tarts. It’s like this: braised dried fruit + whipped mascarpone (or other sweet cheese) + shortbread crust. So imagine this: Braised dried cherries + whipped cream cheese + chocolate shortbread crust Or… […]

THE SPICY MARIA

THE SPICY MARIA // The Kitchy Kitchen
Gotta love a boozy brunch! This is a fresh, muddled Bloody Mary but with a spicy tequila kick. I added cucumber juice to cool the whole thing down, but if you don’t want to bust out your juicer, just muddle in extra cucumber and tomatoes to get extra liquid. This is my new Sunday morning fave. INGREDIENTS 3 cherry tomatoes, […]

This cocktail could not be easier: four ingredients, […]

ROASTED TOMATO TART WITH PALEO CRUST // The Kitchy Kitchen
Savory tarts are my go-to brunch dish.  They’re easy to prep ahead of time, and you can serve them warm or room-temp, making them a hostess’s dream. Better yet, this version is vegan and paleo, so anyone can enjoy it. The cauliflower crust is simple, and can be adapted to whatever flavor profile you like (add cumin and chile for […]

EL GUAPO

EL GUAPO // The Kitchy Kitchen
Spicy, fresh, and very handsome indeed, El Guapo is one of my favorite cocktails. I’m not huge on sweet stuff, so I love that this drink is bone dry but with a little salt and pepper to give it a bit of edge.  Enjoy! INGREDIENTS 1.5 ounces lime juice 1 small persian cucumber, thinly sliced 3 ounces tequila blanco 1/2 […]
