Dinner Rush! Steak Sandwiches with Tomato Jam + Watercress

Look, I know what you’re thinking. “Tomato jam? In February?” Yes, tomato jam in February. February is, in fact, the perfect time to be enjoying this spread of the gods. Being that they’re out of season in most of the U.S. right now, savoring the joy of the tomato usually means eating yellow-greenish slices of [...]

Dinner Rush! Ginger Pork Patties with Miso Mayo + Oven Fries

A beautiful thing happens when two culinary superpowers collide. When the savory bliss of miso goes head-to-head with the creamy indulgence of mayonnaise, magic happens. Magic, my friends, that merits repeat dips from some crispy oven fries. While I can hardly lay claim to the invention of miso mayo, singing its high praises has become [...]

Dinner Rush! Rigatoni with Meat Sauce and Peas

There’s no sense in even trying to deny the allure of rigatoni. You love it, you know you love it and there’s no shame in admitting it. Those thick tubes of perfectly cooked pasta, harboring secret pockets of saucy delight. Don’t even try to wipe the drool off your keyboard. Resistance is futile. Seriously, though, [...]

Dinner Rush! Seared Lemon Caesar Salad

Now that we’re a fresh and free-wheeling three weeks into the New Year, it’s clear that you’re doing everything right. You’re hitting the gym, drinking less, sleeping better and pounding back salads for lunch like it’s your job. Right? Three out of four? Really it’s that last part that’s cause for most concern. There’s a [...]

Dinner Rush! Paprika Steaks with Maple-Worcestershire Shallots

Polar vortexes, bubbles freezing in mid-air, snow falling by the tens of inches – it’s all too much! Calm down, 2014! A year kicking off with such atmospheric tenacity certainly merits a bit of indulgence. Make it a steak night, why don’t ya? Few pleasures in life quell the inner carnivore’s urges like a steakhouse [...]

Brunch Rush! Sausage, Egg and Cheese Strata

What do the following seasonal phenomena have in common? Fitness- and diet-tracking apps flood the social media feeds. Champagne glasses clink and toast to health and good tidings. Everyone starts singing “Auld Lang Syne” (even though no one actually knows the words). Many of us brace for the first hangover of the year. That’s right [...]

Brunch Rush! Christmas Frittata with Whipped Ricotta

When I was a kid, every Christmas morning’s fast was broken with quiche. It was just my mom’s special holiday thing. She’d load up a frozen, compression-molded pie crust with ham and cheese for us, peppers and onions for her, and we’d open presents while it baked away. It was no Thomas Keller-esque creation, nor [...]

Dinner Rush! Lemon-Pepper Chicken with Orzo

I can remember growing up and rifling in awe through my grandma’s collection of spices. The sights and smells of things like mace, nutmeg and ginger were exotic to a curious 8-year-old. What did not seem that exotic, though, was a jar plainly labeled Lemon & Pepper. I mean, it smelled nice and all, but [...]

Dinner Rush! Hummus Plate with Spiced Ground Beef

I think it’s a bummer that we treat hummus only as a dip or a condiment. Don’t get me wrong; I’m more than okay with its ubiquity. The fact that I can now snack on my commute home with a grab-and-go pack of roasted garlic hummus and pretzels from the train station kiosk makes my [...]

Dinner Rush! Vietnamese-Glazed Pork with Edamame

I spend a lot of time with recipes, usually writing, photographing or testing them. Like reading anything consistently, the work becomes familiar and you start to pick up on its patterns — in the case of recipes, that tends to mean similar cooking methods or ingredients. I had a record-scratch moment the other day as [...]
