Spicy Broccoli Salad

Our friend Satomi is a little famous around the Austin potluck scene for her broccoli salad which includes bacon, raisins and mayonnaise. Sounds weird as hell but it’s really tasty. I wanted to come up with a slightly spicy, slightly less sweet version of hers that would work well as a side dish for tacos or enchiladas. […]

Shrimp and Pesto Stuffed Squash Blossoms

I couldn’t find them recently when I was really craving one. So I made my own. My dad used to make a really good sandwich with […]

Spicy Pickled Beets

Inspired by this description of a Mexican pickled beet botana from the Yúcatan, these pickled beets are a little spicy, sour and sweet. They’re a delicious addition to your stocked refrigerator — eat them on their own; make a salad, adding arugula and crumbled goat cheese; or put some on your cocktail-hour snack plate. The habanero adds […]

Beef Satay Meatballs

For when you want something a little sweet and a little spicy, but all you have is some boring ol’ ground beef, make these beef satay meatballs!
