The Idealist Chef
Allegra's Eggplant Sauce for PastaIt's an easy to make, hearty Italian dinner. I made it for the first time when I was homesick for mom's cooking and it's been in my arsenal ever since.
Allegra's Homemade FalafelI made this for my parent's anniversary present one year. Making falafel is a great way to impress company ;-)
Allegra's Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap CrustI make this every year for Thanksgiving. It started off as a fun addition and has turned into something my family requires. They won't hear of a Thanksgiving without it!
Emily's Soft Polenta with Mixed Mushrooms and GremolataOne of my favorite places in Jersey City makes a version of this for brunch. It's worth traveling for! I can picture Victoria whipping this up for a brunch.
Elena's SalmorejoI love, love, love this easy soup from Andalusia. Easy, tasty and different than the famous gazpacho. A hidden gem from the Spanish cuisine.
Alex's Chocolate SoylentIt's the perfect quick meal for anyone who doesn't like cooking and isn't wild about food!
Kara's Berry Buckle (after Melissa Clark)An adaptation of a NYT recipe that makes a lovely brunch item or a light dessert. It's also flexible enough to take on most yummy fruits you have on hand.
Matt Cifaldi's ChimichurriI really like this sauce in the summer and on steaks or sausage sandwiches, but it's good on just plain bread too! I discovered this when living in Argentina, and it's super tasty. It reminds me of my time there. Good as a marinade too!
Denise's Pinterest Zucchini Shrimp ScampiIn my efforts to try to eat less carbs and more veggies while still enjoying food, I found this recipe on Pinterest, bought a spiralizer to make the noodles, cooked it one day for my family and LOVED IT! Then I had to return to the spiralizer.
Andrea's Spinach and Artichoke Dip!I discovered this recipe on my quest to find the best, low maintenance snacks for a SuperBowl party I was hosting. Such a lifesaver when you're having a bunch of people over and you need something quick and easy to tide over the hordes of hungries. It's also super easy to double the recipe for extra large crowds or an extra treat to enjoy on your own!
This cookbook is for our resident Giada, Victoria Crispo. Happy birthday!!
