Make Ahead

  • What were you up to in 2002? I was living in Washington D.C., awash in spreadsheets and up to my eyeballs in crazy co-workers. I decided to quit my catering job with the venerable Dean & Deluca, and jump in with both feet into the personal chef business. I heard there was great opportunity, and I was ready for the challenge. The
  • Grilled Cheese just may be the perfect comfort food! Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside –  warm and rich and creamy, it’s practically a MUST-DO this time of year.  What comes to your mind when thinking about grilled cheese? For me, it’s sitting at the kitchen table with my little bro, anxiously awaiting my mom’s
  • What the heck are pizza beans you ask? Are they beans on pizza?? Pizza on beans?? You’re intrigued, I can tell. 😊 As far as I know the term was first coined by Deb Perelman, one of my favorite blogger/chefs, in her second cookbook. The story goes that she, 6 months pregnant, was invited to a potluck. Instead of making a
  • Apples, Pumpkins and Pears, OH MY!! Autumn is officially here. “Lexi, didn’t you just make a cake a few weeks ago?” YES. Yes I did… and do I have ANOTHER beauty for you.  Fall is THE BEST time for baking, and never fear, I’ve got cakes galore (check out my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Hazelnut Streusel,
  • It’s time to UP your hummus game. I’ve got just the way to take this standard appetizer from DULL (sorry, it just is) TO DELECTABLE. Sure you can peel back the plastic, and serve it right out of the tub alongside baby carrots and pita chips for an instant appetizer. But once you’ve tasted the GOOD STUFF, you’ll
  • It seems to happen earlier and earlier each year… the great pumpkin invasion. People all across this land go crazy for pumpkin spice anything! I used to try resist the temptation, holding off as long as I could, and saving the bounty for later in October and November. But nowadays I fully embrace pumpkin’s arrival. You

One that will keep you and all your NFL loving friends and family quenched- and stoked for fall. Truth is, it took me a while to come around to Bourbon, or
  • Labor Day is here. Yes, the unofficial END of summer is this weekend. The last big hoorah, the last time we can wear white pants (wait, that’s not still a rule!), and the last excuse to party until… well the next party. Do you know what you’ll be having this weekend? I do. This simple – and simply delicious –  corn

  • How did I use up the leftover beans I had from my Pizza Bean recipe? Rosemary, Parsnip and White Bean Soup. Beans add a rich creaminess to soups without adding cream! Saute onions and garlic in a saucepan. Add cubed parsnips, fresh rosemary, and chicken stock to cover. Simmmer until softened, add some beans, then puree everything in a blender. Add more stock to thin it out if you need, and don't forget the salt and pepper!
