Marinated Tofu, Rice Pudding, Samin

I told Andy that yesterday in the kitchen felt like the fabled story of painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Every time I cooked something and cleaned it up, someone was right behind me dirtying up another one hundred dishes. It was mostly my fault, though. I had a bunch of things to test and retest for my book — a… Read more »

Fried Rice, Grandma’s Biscotti, Board Games

Hello and welcome to Wednesday. Yesterday Andy cut Abby’s hair (he’s the “detail guy” in the house); I tested some cabbage recipes and made a style guide for my book; and I think I saw my 18-year-old for a total of five minutes. (She was holed up in her room or outside riding her bike.) For bedtime reading, I took… Read more »

Black Rice Buddha Bowls with Peanut Sauce

For reasons that will become clear in the near future but that I will currently explain simply as “an occupational hazard,” I had to bake eight batches of box-mix brownies yesterday. Technically, I didn’t eat any of the brownies I baked, unless you count the batter from each scraped bowl, and the crumbs under the cooling racks, and of course… Read more »

Chicken and Rice for Beginners

Before this blog, before my diary. Before the phrase “cut and paste” conjured up anything more than scissors and glue, there was my spiral black kitchen book. The book is filled with recipes clipped from magazines and newspapers that I felt were manageable for someone like me — a twenty-something recent college grad whose spice rack contained three things: salt, pepper,… Read more »

Quick and Easy Pork Fried Rice

It’s almost irresponsible of me to tell you about the way I served this meal to my kids — because it’s exactly the way that, if practiced often enough, will drive you to swear off family dinner forever. I love fried rice. Before Andy and I had kids we’d make it with shrimp and pork and chicken all the time…. Read more »

Salmon Rice Bowl

Have you guys found the recipe for sushi rice on page 165 of the cookbook yet? And have you found the recipe for the salmon teriyaki in the “restaurant replication” section (p. 112)? I have! And that’s what was for dinner last night — a combo of the two: Rice bowl with Salmon, and crumbled on top: those Trader Joe’s… Read more »

Six Random Things

Good morning! I interrupt the Project Pantry Purpose series to bring you a bunch of things that don’t necessarily fall neatly into the usual categories, except for this galette, which I wrote about yesterday over at Cup of Jo. DALS loyalists already know it’s my favorite can’t-mess-it-up-no-matter-how-you-try dessert. Here are five more completely random items (including one plea for help)… Read more »

Picnic Chicken, Pesto Pizza, Parenting Through Protest

Good morning! Welcome to Week 14 of Pantry, Project, Purpose. Our section of New York hit Phase 2 of re-opening last week, and it was so heartening to see restaurants set up outdoor dining in the street. (Leave it to today’s Daily, though, to scare me all the way back to March.) We spent as much time as possible outdoors… Read more »

Burritos, Energy Balls, Tomato Garden

Good morning, and welcome to Week 10 of Your Quarantine PPP. It was gorgeous in New York all weekend and we tried to make the most of it by hiking at Rockefeller State Park again (we spotted two Baltimore Orioles, a prime sighting in our neck of the woods); lounging and reading on the patio with the dogs; and planting… Read more »

Albums, Snacks, Jerry Stiller

Good morning! Another unseasonably cold one in New York, but the sun is out, so I will take it. Yesterday I crossed something off my to-do list that I think might hold the world record for Longest Time Ever Spent on a To-Do List: I sent ten first-day-of-school photos to Shutterfly to make prints. Like a lot of parents out… Read more »

Dumplings, Daiquiris, Big Lasagna Party

Good morning! Hope you’re all healthy and safe and feeling ok as we approach our seven-week stay-at-home milestone. I started cooking down the fridge to prepare for the next food delivery (coming Sunday) so yesterday’s lunch was more charred broccoli with fried rice (leftover from our curried chickpea dinner) and crushed peanuts; for dinner, we uncovered some homemade enchilada sauce… Read more »

Egg Roll in a Bowl, Kale Salad, Angels

Six weeks as of today, April 24. Six weeks! I’m not sure what it adds up to exactly, but it’s a milestone nonetheless! On this rainy Friday, I’m pleased to wrap up the week’s content with a little help from Bean. (So meta!) Yesterday I ran in a state park, talked to my college friend on the old-fashioned telephone, video’d… Read more »

Lemon-Turmeric Booster, Khichdi, Meal Planning Help

Good morning. Yesterday was a big news day in the coffee department: We found our old handheld milk frother, which made our morning cup, and therefore our morning, just a little bit better. I talked to my parents; I wrote about a delicious spring salad over at Cup of Jo; I planned to work on some book edits in the… Read more »

Baked Pasta, Bok Choy, More Birthdays

Happy Monday, Team Quarantine. Hope you all had healthy weekends and Easter Sundays. Yesterday, I drove across the county to my parents’ house to say hi from the curb and drop off some flour and sugar. (That’s my mom pictured. She’s baking a birthday cake for her grandson, my nephew. Happy Birthday Owen!) I also went for a run in… Read more »

What Should I Make Next? Your Quarantine Recipe Index

Happy Friday, Everyone. Tonight, we’re celebrating getting through three weeks of quarantine with a classic comfort food dinner: Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and a peanut-y kale-cabbage slaw I’ve been meaning to test for my next book. We’ve been trying to think of something to do this weekend that might differentiate a weekend day from a weekday day. (A 10-mile family… Read more »

Crepes, Tofu Bowls, Video Diary

Greetings, DALS family. I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve gotten the nicest notes since I launched the PPP series, and I wanted you to know a) how grateful I am for this community and b) how therapeutic it is for me to produce helpful (read: distracting) content, however Groundhog Day that content is beginning to sound. On that note, yesterday… Read more »
