Brie and Apple Tartlets with Apricot Mustard

Brie and Apple Tartlets with Apricot Mustard

One of the main reasons I went to culinary school is because I love parties. To me, a good party is dependent upon good food. I wanted to plan parties professionally, so I thought knowing about food was the best way to be a great […]

Cheesy Gruyere and Sage Potatoes

Cheesy Gruyere and Sage Potatoes

I don’t know about you, but at the holidays my family loves potatoes. Meat and potatoes, in fact. Such a midwestern cliché, but it’s true! I love potatoes too, and since there are very few other times a year that I would indulge in a cheesy, creamy potato I tend to take my holiday potatoes very seriously. After all, if I’m going to indulge just once a year, they better be seriously memorable! These Cheesy Gruyere and Sage potatoes are so deliciously good, they’re a no-brainer for your holiday table this year.

Crispy Skin Salmon with Cauliflower and Pancetta

Crispy Skin Salmon with Cauliflower and Pancetta

Earlier this week I posted a recipe for a wonderfully cozy bowl of creamy chicken soup with dumplings. I mean, talk about craveable comfort food, right? Although, as the title “The Craveable Kitchen” might imply, my food cravings don’t always run the comfort food variety. In fact, my daydreams about food often lean more towards entertaining. A certain idea might start with the craving of a particular ingredient, say pancetta, and then before you know it, I’m rounding out the complete dish with crispy skinned salmon and seared cauliflower all piled perfectly high for a beautifully plated main course. Just like you see here:

Creamy Chicken Soup with Dumplings

Creamy Chicken Soup with Dumplings

What can I say? Creamy chicken soup is good all on it’s own, but adding doughy pillows of stock-simmered dumplings, well that just takes it to an entirely new level. Cream-based soups have always been my favorite. I have very clear memories as a young […]

Butternut Squash Holiday Hummus

Butternut Squash Holiday Hummus

With the holiday season in full swing, we need some party food recipes to help us celebrate. I am all about chips and dip as I confessed here in my first “get to know me” post. But, I also enjoy making healthy choices when I can. Seeing as how hummus is inherently vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free, it’s a great compromise for the hors d’oeuvres table. You satisfy all those competing food restrictions with one simple dish! How’s that for convincing!?

Sure, there are lots of packaged options at the grocery store these days, but making hummus is fun to do and it is truly simple. I always find it enlightening to make foods I enjoy from scratch. Most often, fresh also just tastes waaaaay better. Once I try a traditional recipe a few times, there inevitably comes a time to add my own twist. In this case, I up the seasonality and add some holiday flare with sweet and earthy roasted butternut squash. With a sprinkle of rosemary salt and pomegranate seeds, we’ve got a winning dish. Doesn’t it look lovely? And festive? Who wouldn’t be excited to dip into this party dish?!
