Chicken Enchiladas

{f you’re subscribed via email, I’m so sorry for those two weird email notifications regarding a “new post” last month. Something was wonky with WordPress and it was triggering emails. The internet is a mystery to me sometimes. I’m trying to make sure it doesn’t happen again!} Today, we are talking about enchiladas. It’s a delicious dish that might feel intimidating to make…until now. Sometimes I just need some comfort food, a little spice, and lots of cheese. If you feel the same way, this is your dish. This recipe will have you making homemade enchilada sauce (that the chicken cooks in!) using only a small list of flavor packed ingredients. If you’re not a fan of chicken, you can easily sub it out for roasted veggies, black beans, or another type of meat. Here we go! First, you saute some diced onions in a large pot. Then you add [Continue Reading...]

I was excited to get the opportunity to work with Kraft and create a recipe using their cheeses. I’m always overly eager to consume any and all types of cheese so this project was perfect. I decided to make this tart because I love the combination of flavors and texture. It’s creamy, sweet, and slightly salty with a flaky crust. The trick to this dish is to get your onions fully caramelized and then to add tons of cheese! It makes a great appetizer for a party, a delicious snack, or a fun addition to a weeknight dinner. All you need is a sheet of puff pastry, some olive oil, red pepper flakes, a sheet of puff pastry, onions (plus some butter), arugula, and 3 types of cheese: mozzarella, goat, and parmesan. I recommend making this recipe in 2 parts: 1) Caramelize the onions the night before and then 2) Assemble and bake the tart [Continue Reading...]

Sausage, Apple, and Sage Stuffing

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! And I can’t wait. It’s my favorite holiday by far…you don’t have to stress about getting people gifts, friends and families get to spend quality time together, and then you just eat and eat and eat until you want to pass out and nap. Who could ask for more? One of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes is stuffing. I guess it’s technically called dressing if you don’t cook it inside the turkey…but that sounds like salad dressing and it’s confusing, right? So let’s stick to calling it “stuffing” even though it’s baked in a casserole dish. This stuffing is sourdough heaven. It has a slight apple tang, a hearty flavor from the sausage, and then a heavy  drizzle of browned butter and fried sage. Can we talk about combining browned butter and sage for a minute? It produces the most amazing aroma ever. If you’ve [Continue Reading...]

Shrimp and Avocado Crostini

Avocados are amazing. Especially when you find one that’s perfectly ripe and beautifully green after you slice it in half. You know that awesome feeling, right? Or is it just me?? It’s like a small, but very fulfilling food win that deserves a pat on the back :) And shrimp? Anything with seafood is delicious in my book. Add a little citrus and spice, and you’ve got yourself an easy, flavorful snack/appetizer! Remember how I’m training for my first half marathon? Well, it’s in less than a month…EEK!…and I’m definitely not prepared. I’m running the race with a few coworkers, my roommate, and two of my friends so although I’m huffing and puffing during each of my runs, I’m really excited to finish a 13.1 mile race! A fellow food blogger friend, Ishita, was also training for a different half (which she just completed–go Ishita!) so we had a lot [Continue Reading...]

Sriracha Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is quite possibly one of my favorite comfort foods. And hot sauce? Hot sauce is my best friend. This sriracha mac and cheese has it all. For many of you, autumn has arrived and pumpkin spice everything is everywhere. Leaves are probably turning all of those pretty fall colors. But in San Francisco? It’s summertime! For about 2-3 months out of the year, we get some warmth and sun in this foggy city. And even though I’m soaking it up while it lasts, I’m starting to crave those cold weather comfort foods. Ergo, sriracha mac and cheese. Sriracha is added into the cheesy béchamel sauce and then extra hot suace is also drizzled on top right before serving. Spicy perfection! I got this idea from my friend Cassie who is awesome at whipping up great meals. She invited a huge group of us over and made multiple [Continue Reading...]
