We miss these bad puppies. They were a regular late-night snack when we lived in Manhattan. The shop down the block from our flat not only made the best falafel, but also had the best house-made tahini sauce for topping.

We never deep-fry food in the house. And last night was no exception. Too messy, too many calories, take it from there. But we love Buffalo Wings with a crème fraîche and blue cheese dipping sauce.

Baked Buffalo Wings - These easy to make hot wings are crispy without being fried. You can add more cayenne or use a higher hot sauce to butter ratio if you like them spicier!

Not quite the traditional lamb roast. This Easter we decided a serious comfort food bowl of Youvetsi was the ideal treat.

Dead simple and incredibly good. This spicy chorizo pasta relies on tomato purée and red wine to make a rich sauce. Put an extra handful of shredded fresh basil on top.

Spicy chorizo pasta - Very nice, didn't have any red wine, so used chicken stock, just as good!

This past weekend, we had house guests who were hankering for a BBQ brisket with corn n the cob. Weather not being the best, this oven version fit the request to a tee. Even better the next day served over noodles.

Achiote-Guajillo Grill Marinade. Another successful rediscovery from our trip to Mexico in March.
