Cocoa-Banana Breakfast Bread

Why should breakfast bars and protein cookies get all the glory? These mini-loaves have all the joyful decadence of a chocolaty banana bread while packing 14 grams of protein and nearly a quarter of a day’s recommended calcium. Plus it’s fiber-rich and high in iron. […]

Carrot Cake with Creamsicle Frosting

Gnocchi with Bison and Wild Boar Ragu

Today is “Gnocchi Thursday” at the divine @nostranapdx, but in case you’re too lazy to leave your house, this is a *really* good and very fast knockoff of their gnocchi with beef and pork ragù with red wine and parmigiano ($19). It’s Nicky Farms ground bison and wild boar browned with a coarse purée of onion and garlic, with a little butter, a splash of garnacha (plus a little homegrown heirloom tomato sauce for zazz and body), parm, oregano, S&P and a tiny pinch of chile. Don’t @ me, but the ragù is served with store-bought gnocchi (hey, at least it’s imported from Italy!), and a bit of the cooking water was added to the sauce to make it more silky. Done in under thirty minutes, no reservations required. 🍖 🍝 🍖 Bison and wild boar are like beef’s and pork’s sexier, more interesting cousins, and thanks to @nicky.usa, one-pound packs are available at better-stocked groceries around the Northwest (like @newseasonsmarket and @metmarket). 🍖 🍝 🍖 🍝#meatconcierge #nickyfarms #bison #boar #feralswine #wildboar #buffalo #pasta #gnocchi #italianfood #dumplings #homemade #meat #ragu #meatsauce #redsauce #foodstagram #food52 #instayum #instafood #instagood #forkyeah #carbs #gluten

Black Radish Salad with Bacon

I had a couple of leftover bierocks from a shoot today (upcoming in @pomomagazine — stay tuned!), so tonight’s dinner was merely a matter of tossing together a nice little Rettichsalat mit Speck. This is just a bowl of matchstick-cut black radishes with @nueskes bacon, […]

Kamut-Black Radish-Radicchio Salad with Pistachios

Revisited this winter salad for dinner, padding out the toasty kamut with a little more asparagus, black radish and radicchio (added a little more pistachio and a dash of red wine vinegar), and served with a simple seared chicken breast seasoned with za’atar and orange. […]

In the 1970s, Pizza Joints Pulled Out All the Stops

Remember eating pizza with your family while the dulcet tones of Pinball Wizard tore loose from a Wurlitzer pipe organ? The 1970s were real special times. I wrote about the Organ Grinder and the history of pipe organ pizza joints for Taste.

Marmalade Tea Cake

Okay, here’s the recipe for the orange marmalade cake WITH the recipe for it! It’s a wonderfully fragrant cake with a tender crumb, and I’ve made so many of them lately that I could practically do it in my sleep now. Recipe below the jump. […]

Sous Vide Venison and Warm Kamut Salad

This venison is ridiculously good, but the salad? Five stars, would visit again. Don’t look now, but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Practice the gentle art of seduction by staying in to cook for that special someone (or #treatyoself) with this sexy plate: […]

Middle Eastern Tantanmen

Another delicious bowl in my Year of Ramen™️: a Middle Eastern spin on tantanmen. Instead of a regular sesame-chile broth, I made a garlicky beef broth with toasted sesame purée and preserved lemon, topped with a ragu of ground Anderson Ranches lamb seasoned with lots of garlic, paprika and homemade za’atar, plus harissa and pine nuts. There’s a nice bright dollop of herby chermoula and crispy, spicy roasted chickpeas on top. And of course, lots of locally made @umiorganic ramen noodles! Crazy, you say? Crazy like a kitsune! 🦊 🍜 🦊 🍜 (psst — you can get this Oregon-raised lamb from @nicky.usa !) #inthenoodz #meatconcierge #noodles #noodlehead #ramen #lamb #ragu #meat #soup #sesame #goma #harissa #chermoula #instayum #instafood #instagood #food52 #foodstagram #foodgawker #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #taste #fusion #middleeasternfood #mediterranean
