This breakfast potato hash is perfect for using up bottom-of-the-crisper-drawer vegetables like onions, mushrooms, and kale.Rene hates cooking. So much so that you can actually hear it in the way he cooks - the way we whacks the knife on the cutting board, how he dismissively tosses garlic onto the counter, how he drops a used mixing bowl into the sink. What’s even more annoying than this orchestra of noises is that he’s an amazing cook. He has those essential kitchen instincts that can take others years to master - he’s patient with searing, attentive to . . .
These savory corn pancakes, inspired by the current "breakfast all day" trend, are hearty and satisfying for any time of day.Are you guys as crazy about the "breakfast all day" trend as I am? I'm talking avocado toasts, yogurt bowls, savory porridges, breakfast salads, jammy eggs on everything... I mean, how can you not love this type of food? It's literally everything I want to eat, and if there wasn't already a book by that title, I'd probably set out to write it myself. Both NYC and LA are teeming with all-day cafes right now (see: Dimes, De Maria, and . . .
This savory porridge is made with fiber-rich farro and umami-packed shiitake 'bacon' (crispy roasted shiitake mushrooms). It's perfect for brunch and can be prepped ahead for weekday breakfasts.If I had to pinpoint the exact moment my interest in savory porridge was piqued, it would have to be the 2014 Bon Appétit article about Sqirl - the breakfast-and-lunch-only Los Angeles restaurant with a cult following. All this sexy talk of chewy grains topped with runny eggs and salad-y things; thick, nearly burnt toast drowned in house-made jam in flavors like . . .
Are you sick of me talking about Cape Cod yet? If yes, I’m #sorrynotsorry… The thing is, we kind of live for this annual retreat from reality, and I honestly don’t know how people who don’t have a tradition like this stay sane throughout the year. This will be my last post on the topic - promise! (Until next summer, that is).As mentioned last week, this tradition was conceived nearly twenty years ago (!!!) by Rene’s aunt and her college friends - all of whom immigrated to the US from Poland around the same time in the late eighties/early nineties. All of their kids . . .
This chia pudding recipe is my go-to make-ahead summer breakfast. I love to use it as a vegan yogurt substitute and top it with fruit and granola.One of the most exciting weekends of the year for women in the food industry is the Cherry Bombe Jubilee. Whether you're there in person or following along on Instagram, this conference gathers all the baddest b*tches of the food world under one roof to meet, exchange ideas, and support each other. I've been lucky to attend for the past two years, and both times I've left with new friends and renewed motivation for . . .
This avocado tartine (inspired by Brooklyn's Cafe Madeline) is piled high with fried halloumi cheese, soft-boiled eggs, radishes, and sesame seeds.When I first moved into my current neighborhood, living down the street from Cafe Madeline was one of the things I was most excited about. A killer coffee shop and breakfast/lunch cafe, Madeline is a central meeting hub of the Ditmas Park area. They brew Toby's Estate coffee, have an ogle-worthy pastry counter with these fluffy, several inch-tall croissants, and serve an all-day menu that runs about 80 items deep . . .
