Skinny Crispy Oven-Fried Cod

I love the crunchy exterior of fried fish, but try to stay away from deep-fried foods as much as possible. However, oven-baked fish filets are often not as crispy and can easily be overcooked. This recipe is different. These cod filets are juicy and tender, with a beautiful golden-brown crust. I’ve also added a little […]

Chicken Wellington with a Mushroom Cream Sauce

While digging through the bottom of my freezer, I found a package of unused puff pastry dough. I wasn’t exactly sure how long the dough had been in there, but we’ll just pretend that it had only been a few weeks. I pulled the dough out to thaw in the refrigerator while I sat down to create […]

These chewy pancakes are super-flaky and can either be fried or grilled to perfection. Fried pancakes tend to be a little more moist and chewy, while grilled pancakes are a bit more crispy since the […]

Sartù Di Riso (Meatball, Sausage, And Rice Timbale)

I know what you’re thinking. Why on earth did you put meat in the middle of a cake? That’s just gross. Don’t worry, I’ll explain. Sartù di riso is actually an Italian rice dish, not a cake. It can be baked in several different types of pans, but I love using a bundt cake pan. By using a […]

Black Squid Ink Risotto with Seared Scallops

With holiday season quickly approaching (crazy, right?), I thought it would be fun to share a few recipes that were a bit more elegant and fit for a holiday party. Even though I often make scallops and risotto for weeknight dinners, I think it’s also sophisticated enough for special occasions. Instead of turning to Mushroom Risotto, my […]
