I’m obsessed with peaches right now, of course, because how can you not be during the Summer? And this is my favorite way to eat them!

Spicy Fish Sandwiches with Citrus Poppy Slaw

Spicy Fish Sandwiches with Citrus Poppy Slaw

Making this recipe is basically a nightmare for me. It won’t be for you though! Okay, so maybe I’m being just a tad dramatic BUT I really, really, really, REALLY hate the smell of orange peels and guess what’s in the slaw? Orange zest. Ahhhh orange peels.

Linguine with Pickled Peppers and Crab

Listen, I am a total psycho for not having put pickled peppers in pasta my whole life. I feel like I really blew it on that one.

Before we get into the recipe, I want to just quickly go over what ‘nduja is. I’m getting this out of the way before you scroll down to the next photos and get turned off by the consistency. ‘Nduja is a spicy, spreadable pork from Italy and it is incredibly delicious!

Tequila Clams with Pancetta and Peppers

The first time I made these clams was kind of by accident—which is actually how most of my recipes come about—I knew I wanted to make clams and I wanted to use jalapeño but I didn’t have much of a plan after that. I had onion and yellow pepper and I found some pancetta that I had frozen and the Read More

Orecchiette with Scungilli and Neonata Sauce

First things first: Neonata means newborn in Italian and I want to make it VERY clear that I am not suggesting that you add two tablespoons of a newborn baby to your sauce.
