Thumbnail image for Ricotta Parmesan Gnocchi & Brown Butter Broccoli October 10, 2014

Oh, Ricotta Parmesan Gnocchi, how I do love thee. Cheezy little pillows. Melt in the mouth dumplings. Soft buttery morsels. Ok, you get the idea.

I love leftovers. There’s just no two ways about it. And I swear, leftovers are the mother of invention, at least in my kitchen. So there I was, making a thousand spring rolls and my fridge was filled with 8 containers of different dipping sauces. And the recipes make a pretty fair amount, too. I [...]

In the last couple of years I have run across recipes that included Japanese yuzu kosho, but I didn’t know what it was. There were so many other recipes I wanted to make, so I just stuck those yuzu kosho recipes in a file and moved on. One day recently I was checking my files [...]

Both dishes contain fresh ginger, shallots, coriander and fish sauce, but the Thai Curry was flavored with guajillo chiles, [...]
