Most of my mornings revolve around flipping eggs while simultaneously sweating my ass off in our kitchen at Black Dolphin Inn. So by the time I’m home, the idea of sweating even more over lunch is a major no-go. That’s why I always try to make something that’s fresh, flavorful, exciting, and well, something doesn’t involve a lot of added heat.

When I was whipping up some lunch for Jerm and I the other day, I wanted to make something that was similar to a BLT but a little bit more extra. Insert these beautiful babes. Toasty sourdough, creamy burrata and bright tomato jam pair with fresh leaves of butter lettuce, fragrant basil and crispy bacon. Add a little maldon salt and a few pinches of red pepper flakes and you’ve got a perfect summertime dish that is good anytime of year. Continue reading

Food Network Facebook Live episode 10: Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza

Animal Style Cheese Burger Pizza - just like In n Out but on a pizza!

Before I moved back home to Florida, I was dead-set on heading west to California. I had been totes over New York for quite a while but was afraid to move because I thought everywhere else would be boring. As for California, well, it just seemed ideal. The people were like-minded, super eco-conscious and progressive, one of my favorite ways to chill was actually recreationally legal, New York winters didn’t exist there, and most importantly — there were In-n-Out Burgers.

As an East Coast gal, In-n-Out was one of those things that I yearned for. Not being able to get it on the reg only made me want it more. I dreamt about their burgers dripping with animal sauce goodness, crispy fresh-cut fries smothered in cheese sauce and topped hot peppers, and a perfectly spun milkshake in my hand. But nah, for some reason, somebody decided to keep it a West Coast thing. And I will never forgive them for that. **insert devil eyes** Continue reading

Food Network Facebook Live Episode 7: Summertime Galette with Heirloom Tomato, Sharp Cheddar + Fresh Thyme

Summertime galette with Heirloom tomatoes, sharp cheddar and fresh thyme

I’m such a sucker for summertime food. From drippy rocket pops to decked out hot dogs on the grill, I melt at the thought of it. Literally. But with all the junk that comes with grill-outs and pool parties, there’s also some super delicious produce that screams of the season, too.

Down here in Florida, tomato season is just beginning and we’re getting the prettiest, tastiest tomatoes we’ve had all year. You might have seen on my insta-story the 10 lbs of organic sun golds that my neighbor brought me a few days ago. We had so many that I had to make a big batch of sweet and smokey tomato jam… which will definitely be making an appearance on the blog soon! It’s insane how crazy they’re growing… I can’t even eat them fast enough! That’s part of the reason I’m obsessed with this summertime galette. They’re the perfect way to use up lots of cherry tomatoes or other overflowing produce that you might have on hand. Continue reading
