Dinner Rush! Wild Mushroom Risotto with Honeyed Mascarpone

Why is it that pasta is the go-to “pantry raid” dinner of choice? Sure, pasta just seems so effortless and satisfying. But here’s a fun fact: so is risotto. Arborio rice. Stock. Some aromatics. The vegetable of your choice. Cheese. That’s pretty much all you need to have on hand to get dinner on the […]

Dinner Rush! Italian Combo Calzone

Spoiler alert: Italian Combo Calzone is a shorter way of saying “you’ve earned something delicious for dinner tonight.” Borrowing inspiration from a classic Italian combo sub, this almost effortless calzone packs not just one but three different meats.

Dinner Rush! Grilled Carne Asada Tostadas

The tostada is to Tex-Mex what the club sandwich is to a chrome-and-neon diner. This open-faced sandwich comes high-brow or low-brow however you want to have it, served up on a flat (or sometimes slightly concave) crisp tortilla. Enjoy one for a snack, two for a meal or three for those moments of absolute desperation. […]

Dinner Rush! Honey-Bourbon Chicken + Herbed Salt Potatoes

Summer state fairs are a big deal in my stomping grounds of New York and New England. Concerts, ring tosses, red wine slushies (yes, they’re a thing) and the state’s finest butter sculptures — they’ve got it all. The best part, though, is the fair food.
