  • 10 Cozy Things to Make in September

    acozykitchen.com | Mon, 10 Sep 2018 22:37:02 +0000

    AHH! September. HOWWW are we here already? I can’t even wrap my head around the idea that Thanksgiving is happening in like three months—make it stop! Time, please stand still! I feel like I say this every single month and it makes me cringe to think about that. Ugh. So here we are. September! It’s a strange month. It’s the month where the season transitions from summer to fall…yet here in LA we’re still dealing with scorching temperatures. So no sweaters for me any time soon. Also, sorry this is coming so late in the month. I was traveling last week and completely forgot that I owe you this riveting round-up post. 1. Vegetarian Bao Buns – These fluffy clouds filled with a mixture of sautéed veggies. They are dreamy and way easier than you could ever imagine. 2. Late-Summer Veggie Bolognese – I posted this last month and it is perfect for this time of year. The bolognese requires a food processor and everything gets chopped up very finely. The sauce is delicious and light. Scoop it over those cauliflower gnocchi everyone and their mom is talking about. 3. Mini Pound Cakes with Labneh Frosting and Roasted Grapes – […]

  • Very Crispy Waffles with Salted Honey Butter

    acozykitchen.com | Fri, 07 Sep 2018 07:00:41 +0000

    I’m currently high in the sky on my way back to Los Angeles. I just spent the last few days in Madison, Wisconsin (I loved it there—more to come!). But it’s the weekend time so it’s time to start thinking of what we’re gonna do tomorrow and Sunday morning. And I will personally vouch for these guys. I put this recipe in The Cozy Coloring Cookbook a few years ago (I can’t believe it came out two whole years ago) and realized I have never ever shared it! This recipe was developed by Billy, while I was developing another recipe. Sometimes we work that way. I’ll give him an idea, a jumping off platform, he’ll do the research and begin. And then I’ll work on something else and by the end of our trials we usually have things for the other person to try. And then we tweak and adjust from there. These were inspired by the waffles at Dinette in Los Angeles. Maybe the best waffle I’ve ever had. It’s super crispy and hella sweet (not my favorite aspect of them) and then they’re topped with sea salt and some maple syrup. THEY ARE SO GOOD. We headed down […]

  • Roasted Tomato + Hatch Chile Soup with a Grilled Cheese (of course)

    acozykitchen.com | Tue, 04 Sep 2018 07:00:04 +0000

    I had a dream that I directed a documentary about La Croix. I honestly have no idea what prompted this insane dream. Yes, I love that sparkling water but for it to appear in my dreams as my next creative venture is a bit weird. But maybe they have an exciting backstory—who knows! Anyway, I know that everyone is screaming FALL at the top of their lungs (especially Michael’s Craft Store. I mean they had autumnal wreathes in July). And yes, maybe I caved and ordered a slice of pumpkin loaf at Starbucks like two days ago, however, I am a huge advocate for stretching each season until the last very bit. Tomatoes are pretty much at their best toward the end of summer. They are juicy and delicious AND the best part is that it’s not super hot in Los Angeles right now so a bowl of soup isn’t totally out of the realm of possibility. While this soup does take a bit of time due to the tomatoes roasting, it’s super hands-off. The tomatoes roast in the oven with the hatch chiles. And then it’s just blended all up with a bit of cooked onion and garlic. One […]

  • Cozy Pumpkin Chili

    acozykitchen.com | Wed, 29 Aug 2018 07:00:03 +0000

    Fall is right around the corner and I’m counting down the days because your girl is ready for fall leaves, long sleeves, comfort, coziness and lots of pumpkin. I am ready. I’m currently writing a super diligent list of fall activities to-do; I’ll share it with you all soon! I’m thinking we can tackle it together. For this pre-fall activity post, I’ve teamed up with ALDI, where you should go for all your autumnal food needs. They have everything from canned pumpkin to the best baking ingredients (at affordable prices) to this Digital Pressure Cooker (only $39.99 available for limited time!). It’s a one-stop shop for fall! While pie was one of the first sweet dishes I wanted to nail; chili was one of the first savory dishes I wanted to be able to get right. It was one of those dishes that I knew I could make and not mess up. I like my chili cohesive and married. I like it to be on the thicker side. And I also love it with lots and lots of toppings. This pumpkin chili is so rich and delicious. And it comes together in under 30 minutes. It’s the easiest, breeziest weeknight […]

  • Tomato Confit with Burrata and Pesto from a Basil Plant I Haven’t Killed…Yet

    acozykitchen.com | Tue, 28 Aug 2018 17:19:50 +0000

    I miraculously have a basil plant that I haven’t killed…yet. I gave her a name. And her pet name is Susan. She is strong and vibrant and I cannot tell you how shocked I am that she’s alive and thriving under my supervision and guidance. I’ve purchased basil plants in the past and every. single. time, I kill them. NOT THIS ONE! Here’s what I have done to aide in prolonging its life: 1. She gets all the water she needs. 2. The sun is her friend. 3. I used this thing called Trash Can that Hilton recommended. It’s compostable fertilizer and it has helped a lot. 4. And I trim her all the time, i.e, make pesto. Every year Josh makes tomato confit and while I’ve always enjoyed the fruits of his labor, I’ve never taken it upon myself to make it…until now! This is an easy-fied version of his method. And it still tastes delicious. It’s as simple as can be. You just add a few pints of cherry tomatoes to a baking dish, along with some garlic, salt and crushed red pepper and let it cook in the oven for a loooong time. When it’s done, it’s […]

  • Sesame Chocolate Chip Cookies

    acozykitchen.com | Fri, 24 Aug 2018 07:00:52 +0000

    I’m currently doing that thing on Netflix where you open the app and then look around for 30 minutes, debate what to watch and then give up and start internet-shopping for couches. I also sometimes put something on and then just look at my phone instead. 2018 can be depressing. Sometimes I’m like, was life easier with regular cable? Things were more decided for us in some ways…anyways I decided to make a firm decision for us all. To make this twist on our favorite cookie–the chocolate chip cookie. This batch is simple. It has a healthy amount of sesame seeds and instead of tahini–I was going for more of a sesame flavor vs. tahini–I decided to use toasted sesame oil. It’s delicious and noticeably there but not overpowering. The sesame seeds add a nice nuttiness to them and give some pretty nice texture. These are slightly flatter cookies than my normal ones. I wanted them a bit flatter because I was craving a thinner, chewier cookie…yet still soft. I did this fantastic science by literally just decreasing the flour by about 1/3 and because of the sesame oil, I felt like it needed a bit more sugar–not a ton […]

  • Zucchini Chocolate Cake

    acozykitchen.com | Wed, 22 Aug 2018 07:00:36 +0000

    For some reason, I’m still totally enthralled with the idea of Azalea Banks wandering around Elon Musk’s house. It’s truly hilarious story that I hope we learn more about. If you’re into procrastinating, it’s a fascinating lil’ story. Secondly, on this beautiful Wednesday morning, I made a little playlist on Spotify. It’s a cooking playlist but can be used anytime when you want to feel peaceful and escape the world around you. For me this is always at the grocery store. I always bring my headphone with me so I can be in my own world while I pick up things and put them in my cart. Now, let’s move to this cake. This zucchini cake started with the highest hopes. It was meant to be a watercolored cake with yellow petal flower with dark green vines. Well…it didn’t work exactly according to plan. I mean does it ever? But there are plenty of happy accidents and this is one of them. I am fervently against fondant. I actually hear marshmallow fondant tastes delicious but I can’t buy it and well, it simply sounds like too much work. So, when my buttercream watercolor dreams failed, I turned to piping tips […]

  • Late-Summer Veggie “Bolognese” with Cauliflower Gnocchi

    acozykitchen.com | Mon, 20 Aug 2018 18:22:32 +0000

    I spent my weekend drinking smoothies because I was gigantic idiot and hit myself in the mouth with a medicine ball (I thought it was a sandbag when I slammed it on the ground) and couldn’t eat for a few days. I could speak just fine but chewing wasn’t ok. ANYWAY, I’m back and recovered. Stupidest thing I’ve done in a long time; I’m glad I survived! I also spent the weekend celebrating my mama’s birthday and took her to see The Waitress—which was SO good. I loved the movie but the play was WAY better so I highly recommend if it comes to your town. Let’s talk cauliflower gnochhi. I’ve been seeing it all over the internets lately so I wanted to give it a try. I headed to my local Trader Joe’s and followed the cooking directions from Laura’s Insta Stories—not what is on the back of the bag and, to my huge surprise, it tasted pretty good! I’ve now been keeping a bag or two in the freezer and it’s great to have on hand when you need a quick meal. This late summer veggie “bolognese” is my favorite. It’s so good and fresh and light. This […]

  • Hamburger Cake

    acozykitchen.com | Wed, 15 Aug 2018 17:24:55 +0000

    Two cake posts in a row?! Not to worry, I have some savory foods in the pipeline coming soon. And then I have more cake. I like to think that this cake is part savory part sweet because it’s a cake that looks like a hamburger! Do you follow Lyndsay from Coco Cake Land?! She’s one my favorites on the innanet. She’s so funny and sweet and strong and rad. Her new book Coco Cake Land: Cute and Pretty Cakes to Bake and Decorate is out and it is hoooooot! It’s full of pretty and cute cakes that you can bake and decorate. There are step-by-step photos and things like cactus cakes, rainbow cakes, pineapple cakes with faces and so much more. I like to think that it would make a really cute gift…but we’re not in holiday season just yet (thanks the heavens!) because I’m not about that right now—too stressful. People keep talking about summer coming to an end but it is still ridiculously hot in Los Angeles. And there are still summer fruits at the market thriving so we’re still in summer and I’m ok with that. And what is more summer than a hamburger cake? It […]

  • Peach Maple Yogurt Cake

    acozykitchen.com | Wed, 08 Aug 2018 19:02:11 +0000

    I’m currently watching old BadGirlRiri music videos because I’m procrastinating from cleaning out the dishwasher. There’s a white film that’s coating all my dishes and after I did some googling I found that it must be clogged and I gotta clean it with citric acid. Sounds fun! A few weeks ago, I went to Vermont where everything is maple this and maple that. I came home regretting that I didn’t buy a jar of maple cream. So I figured it wouldn’t be too difficult to make it and umm…it’s not difficult per se, but man is it time consuming and petty. I love pettiness but not this type of pettiness, you know?! I’m dreaming of maple cream cookies or making cajeta or dulce de leech but with maple. Maybe I’l put my cookie cutters that I bought in Japan to good use. Instead, I opted to put off my maple cream dreams for fall (sounds more seasonally appropriate) and make something summery…with just a hint of maple. This cake is so fluffy. The yogurt gives it a lovely light texture, while the peach jam that’s in between the layers gives a nice summer-y vibe. The yogurt and maple in the […]

  • 10 Cozy Things to Make in August

    acozykitchen.com | Sat, 04 Aug 2018 07:00:00 +0000

    This is what they consider The Dog Days of Summer. Those sultry, hot AF days that feel slow as molasses. I’ve been all over the place this month—some days I feel energetic and like I can take over the world (today is one of those days luckily) and then other days where the heat and sun make me tired. What has been keeping me energized has been the brainstorming for fall things—I can’t wait! But first, we have August to enjoy and attend to so here’s a list of delicious things to cook in August. 1. Grilled Veggie Sandwiches with Chipotle Hummus – Chipotles in adobo make everything taste good. FACT. Mix one chipotle in adobo with store-bought or homemade hummus and boom—deliciousness. And then add grilled veggies and some bread. A+++ 2. Aperol Spritzes – I recently went to a new restaurant and I ordered an Aperol Spritz which came with a very heavy splash of olive brine and four olives and OMG they just read my mind. I love Aperol Spritzes and these variations make me happy. 3. Freeze Some Cookie Dough – I guarantee you know someone in your life that could use a cookie. Life is […]

  • Breakfast Taco Brunch with Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo

    acozykitchen.com | Fri, 03 Aug 2018 07:00:50 +0000

    Running this blog has taught me so much about people’s allergies and diets. Every time I post, there are usually a few questions like,  “can I make this nut free?” “can I make this without eggs?”  “can I make this meal more plant-based?” A lot of times it’s hard for me to answer those questions because I never test recipes with variations like that, which makes it tough to get a confident, firm answer. That’s why I’m so excited with today’s post. For this post, I teamed up with JUST to show you their new product that literally blew my mind. It is an egg-free scramble. It tastes like eggs, it scrambles like eggs and looks exactly like eggs, but it’s magic ingredient? The 4,400 year old legume called mung bean. It’s a delicious, protein-packed, non-GMO, cholesterol-free product that cooks and tastes like a chicken egg. You simply pour it out into a non-stick skillet and cook it like you would regular scrambled eggs. It’s super simple. The color comes from carrot extract and turmeric. The texture is literally identical—it’s wild (watch this video to learn more!). I love watching the people’s reactions. I decided to throw a delicious, low-key […]

  • Spicy Heirloom Tomato Pizza

    acozykitchen.com | Wed, 01 Aug 2018 04:53:37 +0000

    Billy has been out of town this entire week so it’s just been me trying to paint on buttercream and catching up on a bunch of computer work, i.e., watching Lauren Servido’s videos on Instagram and editing photos. It’s been a glorious couple of days in my week, I have to say. Very peaceful! You know what isn’t peaceful is Target, man. I walk in thinking I’m going to see summer outdoor patio furniture but instead it was a huge display of back to school drama that just stressed me out. I’m not even in school, haven’t been in years, but I’m stressed for the children—let them play! I always went back to school in September so late July just seems a bit aggressive, don’t you think? Though, I always did love a some fresh new school supplies. They felt so nice and clean. Let’s talk this pizza! This is a full summer time pizza. It’s a celebration of tomatoes and spiciness. It’s very difficult for me to go to the super market or farmer’s market right now and NOT buy an heirloom tomato and a pint of cherry tomatoes. I eat them all the time. I eat sliced tomato […]

  • How to Make a Doughnut Wall

    acozykitchen.com | Mon, 30 Jul 2018 07:00:49 +0000

    I went to school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It’s a teeny little college town (especially compared to a big city like Los Angeles). I went to a conservatory, which technically means you’re classically trained in whatever you’re studying, but what it really means is that you’re stressed out all the time and you study and work like crazy. We’d have super early shoots at 6am and I’d always, ALWAYS drive past Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (their original location!) and let me tell you, that “HOT NOW” sign that would light up was like a spark of joy and hope to us all. Today, in honor of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ 81st birthday, I’m teaming up with them to show you how to make a very simple and very cute doughnut wall. It was much simpler than I had imagined in my brain. I thought a drill would have to be involved and a tabletop wood cutter but it turns out, I was able to streamline it so it was super easy. I headed to my local hardware store and bought a piece of plywood. They actually had a place where they cut it down for me to my desired size (I went with […]

  • Grilled Summer Squash Gyros with Herbed Tzatziki

    acozykitchen.com | Fri, 27 Jul 2018 07:00:52 +0000

    A few weeks ago I hopped on a plane and went to a place I’d never been before: Burlington, Vermont. I was super excited. In my brain when I think of Vermont, I think of maple trees and green grass, clean air and rolling hills and lots of farms. My imagination was correct because that’s exactly what I experienced and I loved it so very much. I was invited by Stonyfield to visit their network of organic family farms, learn about their history, present day goals and future. And let me tell you, it was a fascinating experience. Their co-founder, Gary Hirshberg, was so inspiring and warm and charming. (If you want to hear more about his fascinating story, here’s a link to his episode on NPR’s How I Built This.) The first farm we visited was my favorite because it had what I love on any farm: baby animals. And lots of them. When we arrived to Julie Wolcott’s farm, she was tardy showing us around because two cows were about to give birth (she assists their births to make sure mama is ok). We ended up meeting the baby calves and they were only an hour old. They […]
