Random Single Gal Recipe: The Juicy Lucca Burger

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I’ve added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice of ripe tomato. So, now it’s the Juicy Lucca, although she wasn’t allowed to have any because it has onions in it. Obviously, you can adjust this recipe so that it’s for as many people as you want, but in true Random Single Gal Recipe style — and considering it’s Independence Day — the following is if you’re just cooking for one. (Also, as I live in an apartment with no outdoor space, it’s also tailored to a stovetop griddle pan.) Happy 4th of July! Keep reading »

Reader Call Out: Random Single Gal Snack Recipes!

Earlier this week, our marketing coordinator, knowing my favorite pastime is cooking/eating, sent me an excited email about the snack she invented one particularly hungry afternoon. “So, in the past week strawberries have been amazing,” she wrote. “I decided to put a smear of fresh goat cheese on a Nilla Wafer and topped it with half a strawberry — it was AMAZING. Like a tiny cheese cake without any of the work!” This got me thinking that A) I need to buy some strawberries at the farmer’s market this weekend (my fridge is always stocked with goat cheese) and B) this would be a great introduction for my first request for reader submissions for our “Random Single Gal Recipes” feature. So, {encode=”amelia@thefrisky.com” title=”Email me”} your favorite snack recipe — Dips! Mini-quesadillas! Other tiny edibles! — and I’ll post my favorites next week. (For reference, “bag of Fritos” does not count, but “Frito Pie” does.) Get ready nom-nom. Keep reading »

Random Single Gal Recipe: Creamy Linguine With Roasted Tomatoes, Peas & Mozzarella

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week), I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

Random Single Gal Recipe: Spicy 4-Bean Chili

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week) I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

It was nearly 100 degrees in NYC this weekend, with a million percent humidity — seriously, it was soupy outside. So I did what any hungry genius would do on a day as hot as the devil’s balls — I made chili! This is the same recipe I made a few months ago and swore I would post (and then didn’t). My dad always made really yummy chili for us when I was growing up. This isn’t his recipe, but it’s inspired by him, as he always made a straight-up bean chili, without any meat (although you could certainly add ground beef or turkey if you’d like). Also, this time around, I made sure to wear plastic gloves when chopping the jalapenos (you can also use red chili) because chili oil is really hard to get off your skin, as I found out.

Random Single Gal Recipe: Vegetarian Breakfast Tacos

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week) I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

I am from California, which means that you could basically put anything in a tortilla and I would eat it. Mexican-influenced food is my mother-effing jam and there is nothing I love more than a breakfast taco or burrito. A place near my apartment has an amaaaaazing breakfast burrito for brunch on either Saturday or Sunday — whichever day it’s not available, I’m left to fend for myself, which is how I came up with this super simple I’m-almost-embarrassed-to-publish-it recipe for breakfast tacos. I’m not embarrassed to post this recipe because chances are, you probably are in a bit of breakfast/brunch rut and trading in your usual omelet or Eggo waffles for Mexican breakfast is a sure way to start your weekend off right.

Random Single Gal Recipe: Roasted Salmon And Brussels Sprouts

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week) I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

Currently, New York City’s temperature feels like a hot, wet towel blanketing every surface. It’s exhausting. Eating a heavy dinner doesn’t help with the fatigue. Lately I’ve been really trying to eat a lot more fish, especially in the evenings when the last thing I want before hitting the sack is a heavy, rich meal. I also have been laying low on the carbs post-work (unless we’re talking booze, which I do not restrict), so for dinner I’ve been making heartier vegetables, like Brussels sprouts, to accompany my protein. Don’t give me that look. Brussels sprouts are delicious when prepared well, extremely affordable, and totally filling, but not in a so-stuffed-you’re-gonna-barf way. After the jump, my recipe for roasted salmon with Brussels sprouts. Keep reading »

Random Single Gal Recipe: Pasta Al Limone

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me — I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so every week I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

It’s a blisteringly hot week in New York City, but 85 degree temps do not stand in my way of eating pasta. However, spaghetti with meat or cream sauce is a lil’ heavy when it’s so hot, so linguine with lemon is a nice, light alternative. Additionally, ever since I heard about the evils of white flour, I only ever cook whole wheat pasta at home, which is much better for, you know, my rockin’ bikini bod. Also, I genuinely prefer the taste of dried whole wheat pasta over dried semolina pasta. (However, if I go out for Italian food, it’s fresh, yummy, doughy semolina pasta all the way.) After the jump, my full recipe for Pasta Al Limone. Keep reading »
