On one onions

Bacon and Prosecco caramelized onions I just needed to jot down this recipe that I recently came up with that I am in love with. It’s very simple, it requires few ingredients but it does take an investment in time. In terms of flavor it is well worth the wait! Let’s get on it! Serves…

Flexing my mussels and Popping bottles

Mussels in Prosecco sauce with grilled whole grain bread slices. Mussels are my go to dish! I love it because it makes me feel a little bit fancy but it is cheap and quick. I am not kidding about cheap, they are around $2.99 per pound in most stores. I get them fresh from the…

Call me Mari Mari

Calamari two ways – Grilled and fried calamari with tri-color pearled couscous in a tomato shrimp head sauce. This morning I woke up and had a taste for something a little special.

Plantain gnocchi with brown butter Alfredo sauce and fried basil I wanted to created a meal that reminds me of home but slightly elevated.

Baked lemon salmon with caramelized onion au gratin potatoes and sautéed garlic kale. Salmon is one fish that is easily accessible and tasty enough that it makes its way into all of our kitchens. I am somewhat of a purest when it comes to seafood, I don’t add much sauce or stuff them with more…

Even though I am in my apartment during quarantine, I still want to have an experience around my meals. I want…

In The Cut – Gray Monuments⁣

When I came upon these pieces by Yuri Pardi I was taken back by how close it was to Günther Domenig’s home.  I hadn’t seen fashion clearly take on the forms of a building I knew, and I had already been working on Palate Architect for 8 months. The gray colors of the 3D projections against the…

Stuffed and Squashed

Grilled grey squash stuffed with lemon basil ricotta, topped with yellow grilled spiral squash noodles on a tomato base  I have grown to love squash in a way I never thought I would. There are a number of foods that I realized I didn’t care for because of how other people prepared them. Squash was…

Cuckoo for Coco(nut) Pops

Vegan coconut ice pops with grated sweetened coconut I felt nostalgic, I had a craving for my grandmother’s coconut ice pops that she used to make and sell in St Kitts. My sister and I were chatting a last week about how much we loved these things. How many memories we had about them. As…
