Chickpea & Tuna Salad

Chickpea & Tuna Salad

The other week, we went to Gocciolina, a wonderful Italian restaurant in Durham. While there, I ate the best chickpeas I’ve ever had in my life. The chickpeas themselves were small and creamy, but the spicy sauce and olives that rounded out the dish elevated them to the next level. I really want that recipe. Since … Continue reading

Ribs.

Ribs.

This is my favorite type of recipe: simple, delicious, and utterly flexible. I like to use boneless beef short ribs or country-style pork ribs, as they both have a higher meat:bone ratio than spare ribs.

Easy & Delicious Beef Brisket

I love a good barbecued brisket, with luscious, smoke-infused fat, crispy edges, and tender meat that falls apart. Unfortunately, I don’t have a smoker.

The past … Continue reading

Crockpot Ginger Chicken

Crockpot Ginger Chicken

Another crockpot recipe to add to the arsenal! We’ve had a bag of dehydrated wild mushrooms sitting in the pantry for awhile (thankfully, no hallucinations ensued) and another half container of button mushrooms slowly showing their age in the fridge. Combine mushrooms with some ginger, garlic, fish sauce, and broth, and you have a delicious … Continue reading

Paleo “Sundae”

Paleo “Sundae”

There is no ice cream, no caramel topping, no whipped cream, and definitely no artificially-colored, sugar-infused cherry on top. Somehow, we took to calling this a “sundae” and it stuck. It is stupid easy and crazy delicious. I never measure any of this, so I’m just making up numbers in the recipe below for those … Continue reading
