DARK CHOCOLATE ROSEWATER CAKE POPS

DARK CHOCOLATE ROSEWATER CAKE POPS // The Kitchy Kitchen
Cake pops! These little bites of heaven are the perfect treat for homemade valentines or for your Gal-entine’s party with your girlfriends. I also love the combination of rosewater and dark chocolate. Not only is it spot-on for Valentine’s Day, it also tastes lovely. The delicate rose flavor elevates the depth of the chocolate, and is a fun twist on […]

FIANCE CHILI

FIANCE CHILI // The Kitchy Kitchen
Craig, my fiancé, is obsessed with his chili. He’s almost as obsessed with “the back video” (a youtube video featuring a variety of stretches to help strengthen your lower back), and I’m pretty sure I’m number three on that list. Fourth is whiskey and indie rock – tied. Fifth is arguing with his brother, Eric, over “Top Five” lists. But […]

DSC_6836 title
This isn’t a recipe, but it is a good idea.  You can lay everything out on a platter hours before mealtime, hold it in the fridge, and look like a hero when breakfast rolls around.  The combination of rich smoked salmon with briny capers, peppery red onion, and some tangy freshly herbed cream cheese may not be original, but it […]

BI BIM BAP

BI BIM BAP // The Kitchy Kitchen
Living in LA means I’m a fork’s length away from amazing food at any given time, which means I’ve eaten a lot of Korean food.

Bi-Bim Bap is […]

JUNK FOOD SMOOTHIES

JUNK FOOD SMOOTHIES // The Kitchy Kitchen
Junk Food Smoothies are my new favorite thing. I resent diets so much. I went on a juice cleanse once, for eight hours, and by the end of the day I was practically snarling and foaming at the mouth.  Will power is not something I possess in the face of food.  I can muster the strength to say, “No Claire, […]

THE BEST SMOOTHIE EVER

THE BEST SMOOTHIE EVER // The Kitchy Kitchen
This is my new green smoothie, and I’m pretty obsessed with it (hence the title of this post).  It’s sweet, it’s spicy, it’s green, it’s ALL THE THINGS. It also manages to be creamy, without having any type of dairy or almond milk in it. Hope you dig it as much as I do! INGREDIENTS For 3 cups 1 large […]
