I may be a little late to this miso train, but I’m jumping on that bandwagon hard-core. As an ingredient I wasn’t really aware of until college, I had been a little skeptical of it, and had only ever heard of it being used in miso soup. Then I started to pay a little more attention, and I got curious. The miso glaze from Love and Lemons was like our gateway drug into The World of Miso. After that encounter, we became a little obsessed: Robert attempted to put that miso glaze on anything he could get his hands on, and I started pinning any recipe that mentioned that magical umami ingredient. Then there was the miso-creamed kale that rocked my world, and the miso-maple roasted roots that took our salad from “great” to “totally boss.” In case you can’t tell, I want to cook with miso some more. A lot more. As usual, Food52 came to the rescue by telling me all about how to cook with miso, and better yet – how to make a week’s worth of dinners with a batch of miso butter. I need to try that.

I pin a lot of recipes. I get irrationally sad and frustrated sometimes because I know I could never make all of them. These “Wish List” posts are a way for me to highlight some of the amazing recipes I would like to make, with each one focusing on a specific ingredient or type of food, etc. If you make something from here, please let me know! I will live vicariously through you.
I’ve been craving curry foods recently. I’m honestly not that familiar with curry recipes, and I think I didn’t even learn what curry could taste like until college. I know that curry blends differ greatly and they are used in a variety of different ways, but I’ve been craving the kind of stew-y, soup-y curry dishes that you pour all over rice in a big bowl while you snuggle up with a blanket and watch too much television. I think this craving has a lot to do with the fact that one of the best things that Robert and I “threw together” for dinner one night in the past few months (in my opinion) was this pumpkin curry fettuccine dish with curried vegetables. Plus, it’s winter. Winter makes me want to eat heavier foods, hence this curry wish list instead of the kale wish list (which is sure to surface at some point in the future). If you have a favorite curry dish, please let me know! [Read more…]
