Farmer’s Market Ratatouille

Aside from being one of my favorite movies, this simple dish is also one of my favorite things to eat during the summer. Squash, eggplant, and tomatoes are in major abundance in these hot summer months and this is the perfect dish to showcase their deliciousness. I’m calling this Farmer’s Market Ratatouille because at this time of year, all the ingredients for this are overflowing at my neighborhood market. There is so much of it and everything is so tempting that I have to try not to make this dish every week.

Corn Chowder


So I bought all this delicious summer corn this August and froze it thinking how fantastic it would be to have a delicious corn chowder in the dead of winter. But then winter never happened and I still had all the corn…So, in celebration of the fact it’s basically summer in March (it was 84 degrees the other day…think about that), why not make something with my summer corn? And fear not, if you don’t have any summer corn collecting frost in your freezer, canned or frozen corn will work just as well.

2011 in Review

Just thought you all might find this WordPress report fun to look at. I’m so happy that this blog is around and you enjoy reading it : ) Sadly, I only posted six times last year! Six! In light of this, my Groundhogs Day resolution (yeah yeah, I’m a little late…) is to post more. I’ve always heard that it’s important to make your goals attainable, so I pledge to post twice as much as I did last year! I’ve been up to a lot stuff these past few months and I’m really excited to share some great recipes with everyone. Stay tuned……..

Here’s an excerpt from the WordPress 2011 report on my blog:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.

Cool, huh?

Big News for Tiny Kitchen!

Friends! I’ve moved, and the Tiny Kitchen isn’t so tiny anymore! Though this sort of makes my blog name irrelevant, I couldn’t be more excited about having a real kitchen. One where the refrigerator will open all the way, there is more than one square foot of counter space…amazing!

Stay tuned for some up-coming holiday recipes!


Thanksgiving is right around the corner! It’s my number one most favorite holiday of all time ever. It’s just food, family, and football. That’s it. So amazing. Every year I head up to ol’ New Jersey to serve as my dad’s sous chef for the shebang. Since I’m under no obligation to bring a side dish and I hate showing up empty handed, I thought I’d share my canned applesauce this year. It’s a great host(ess) gift to bring, as it’s a sweet, lovely, fall treat that’ll last forever. And it comes in a mason jar!

Pumpkin Chili

It’s finally faaaaaaaaaall!

Fall is easily one of my top three favorite seasons (summer…I’m looking at you…), especially because it marks the beginning of the holiday season and all the awesome food festivities that accompany that time of year. The season got off to a really late start in DC, with the weather FINALLY dipping below 75 on a regular basis just a couple weeks ago (and then it immediately started snowing, but that’s another issue…..). Anyway, to ring in the most wonderful time of year, I thought it would be fun to pay homage to the quintessential fall fruit: the pumpkin.

Start getting hungry…..
