This soba noodle bowl is one of my go-to recipes for when Rene and I are in the mood for something Asian-ish and noodle-y, which is, roughly, most of the time.Apparently there is an old tradition in Japan of giving new neighbors soba noodles as a welcoming, “hope we get along!” kind of gift. Hikkoshi soba (moving soba) was a custom practiced from the 17th through the 19th century, when people often lived in communal dwellings and it was especially important that they didn’t hate each other.I learned this two weekends ago from my dad, while we were . . .
The two inherently great things about pasta are that anyone can cook it and everyone loves eating it. Whether swirled with red sauce or dressed up in garlic, red pepper flakes, and broccoli rabe (my favorite), there’s really no wrong way to do pasta.

Thank you for supporting the brands that support The New Baguette! If a Ukrainian person refers to “salad”, nine times out of ten they mean a mixture of cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, and dill. Growing up, this salad made up about fifty percent of our summertime diet - partly because cucumbers and tomatoes were wildly abundant and partly because the salad was the most delicious thing you could eat. Ukrainian cucumbers are so . . .
Inspired by Greek gigantes plaki, these easy braised beans are cooked in the oven with tomato sauce and oregano.Beans. Creamy, tender, cozy beans. I absolutely love them - in grain bowls, soups, mashed on toast, or topped with a fried egg - and eat them almost every day. Unfortunately, as far as many other folks are concerned, beans are like, the most unsexy food in the world. Is it because of the gas? I guess people are terrified of having gas...? It is weird that I'm talking about gas on my food blog? Let's get the gas thing out of the way...Yes, eating . . .
What elevates this kimchi fried rice recipe to “best-of-all-time” status? The variety of toppings! During a recent visit home to NYC, I was invited to an advance screening of My Life in Sourdough. If you haven't heard of it, it's a miniseries about a French girl living in Brooklyn, looking for love but becoming obsessed with her sourdough starter instead. The series is part comedy, part drama, and part cooking show. Clocking in at around six minutes each, the episodes are perfectly portioned as welcome distractions when you're avoiding all those midday work emails . . .

Thank you for supporting the brands that support The New Baguette! Apart from our decade-old Friendsgiving tradition, having my girlfriends over for brunch is one of my favorite food rituals.
