  • Spaghetti with breadcrumbs, chili, fennel seeds and sardines

    • sosayi on January 14, 2019

      Absolutely going to be making this dish again. Great, quick, pantry pasta and my family loved it. Capers, currants, pine nuts, lemon, chile flakes, sardines... the combo was just full of flavor.

  • Lentils and tiny pasta

    • sosayi on March 02, 2018

      Very delicious and cozy/comforting dinner. Subbed black lentils for green/brown (what I had on hand), and added a few things: parm rinds and tomato paste during lentil cooking, and a splash of red wine vinegar for finishing when drizzling with the olive oil at the end. I used rosemary as my herb of choice. I really enjoyed the equal amounts of lentils to pasta. I feel that I've always wanted MORE lentils to pasta in other variations, so this was good. Very basic recipe that is open to endless variations.

  • Malted banana and rye bread

    • sosayi on February 06, 2019

      We really enjoyed this loaf. It's not too sweet, which I loved, and the nutty taste of the rye flour and the malt really worked well with the banana. I will note, I was about 1/2 a banana short and it worked fine. I also split the single loaf into two smaller loaves (one that was cooked with chocolate chips for the little dude) and they cooked in about the same amount of time as the whole, large loaf was supposed to, so the larger one might take a bit longer to finish. Just a heads up.

  • Grilled green beans with feta, dill and pine nuts

    • sosayi on May 18, 2018

      A super simple, but great, green bean recipe. Just grilled green beans tossed with feta, dill, toasted pine nuts, lemon juice (I used the juice of grilled lemons) and olive oil. A favorite flavor combo and will be repeated for sure.
