Grilling pita or slices of nice bread and topping them with grilled peaches, prosciutto, burrata, balasmic glaze, and basil, is a beautiful way to serve an elegant appetizer or light entreé for a girls’ night in.
We’ve fallen in love with the soy-marinated boiled eggs found at ramen shops and the festivals at Leo’s school, and they’re so easy to make at home. We use medium-boiled eggs (though the little dude likes them hard-boiled), and soak them in a solution of soy sauce, sherry vinegar, and sugar.
Guy loves his cooking magazines, and recently picked up a copy of a Better Homes and Gardens’ One-Pan Recipes in the check-out lane. The cover of the magazine featured this pan of ham and cheese melts, made with Hawaiian rolls, brushed with melted butter, chopped shallots, parsley, and garlic, and browned until melty and delicious. We made them for a weeknight dinner and then spotted them at the book club holiday party – they’re really great for any occasion.
We first tried shishito peppers on a rare date night during our two-hour wait for a table at Uchi. They were the only food option at the bar, but we fell in love with their crispy, salty, mild pepper bite.
To make your own, toss peppers with olive oil and sea salt, and grill until pleasantly blistered.
