Creamed corn is one of those items that I always look fondly upon from my childhood. I can really only relate it to the holidays, specifically my family’s ‘recipe’ for corn casserole. Nevertheless, the idea of creamed corn makes me happy; just not from a can. Also, at least for this recipe, there’s no cream [...]

Summer Vegetable Pasta with Chickpeas

While some of my recipes stem from wonderful restaurant dishes, others are created out of disappointment. Take for example this vegetable pasta dish.

Romesco Sauce | Component Cooking

Of all the components I’ve shared so far, this romesco sauce recipe is my favorite. It’s an easy sauce/spread that’s made from a few simple ingredients, primarily roasted red peppers. If it’s summer, I recommend making your own roasted red peppers but during the cooler months, jarred roasted red peppers sustain me. Romesco’s smokey flavor [...]
