Homemade Vanilla Extract

One day I was handed a bundle of dried out vanilla beans. (I’m interning at Food Network, so these sorts of things happen.) I was slightly confused at first as I thought, “What do I do with dried out vanilla beans?” My colleague that handed them to me—as if she read my thoughts—then said that […]

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

I was reading somewhere the other day about how you should always have a cake in your home. The article mentioned that it was a good way to be hospitable when having guests visit by being able to offer them a slice of cake. I don’t follow this rule for fear of having cake take […]

Vegan Celery Root Mashed Potatoes

If you’re a regular reader of The Hungry Hutch, then I’m sure you have a lot of questions based on the title alone of this post. The first one I’ll address is “What is a celery root?” As you’ve probably deduced, it’s the root of a celery plant. It’s relatively neutral in taste with only […]

Sweet Potato Chili

Some of us are recovering from Easter feasts, others are still in the midst of Passover, and the rest of the population is simply wondering what to cook for dinner tonight. No matter what your state of hunger, I think I’ve got a recipe that you can use (or at least save for next week). […]

Easy Chocolate Truffles

On Valentine’s Day I had the opportunity for my first live television segment! To be honest, I was pretty skeptical all the way up until it actually happened. I’d been in talks with producers a couple of times before and none of those conversations panned out. So this time I kept my expectations low so […]

Asparagus & Cauliflower Soup

Though it might not necessarily seem that way when you step outside, spring has officially sprung. This time of the year represents a season of renewal for many people. For some this manifests itself in the planting of gardens, dying of Easter eggs, or nutritional changes in preparation for summer—but one of the most popular […]

Peach Pie

The snow is starting to melt away and I’m beginning to see the actual pavement of the sidewalk. I think that means winter is coming to an end. (YES!) The official start of spring is just over a week away. Do you know what comes after that? SUUUUMMMMMMMMMEEEEEERRRRR!!!! (I’m a little excited in case you […]

Sausage and Ricotta Frittata

Frittatas may seem impressive, but they’re much simpler than they might appear. They’re my go-to dish for feeding a crowd at breakfast, brunch, and sometimes even dinner. (Yes, I ate leftovers of this very recipe for dinner.) Here I combine the eggs with sausage, onions, and ricotta cheese. I used a breakfast sausage for this […]

Lentils with Bacon, Kale, and Dried Cranberries

The Oscars have once again come and gone. Some of the most memorable moments from the nearly four hours of airtime were: Lady Gaga demonstrating just how talented she is via her Sound of Music/Julie Andrews tribute; someone’s dog named Larry getting thanked in an acceptance speech; NPH in his tighty whities; Common and John Legend’s performance […]

Baby Kale Salad with Fruit, Feta, and Walnuts

I spent my evening making some impromptu peanut butter cookies to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I figured I should write about a salad to counteract my gluttony. This isn’t so much a recipe, per se, but more of a list of ingredients I found in my kitchen to make a deliciously healthy lunch. A good […]

Orange Yogurt Pound Cake

My mother has been making a sour cream pound cake recipe for years that has been passed down from my great aunt (and probably a generation or two before her). It’s famous at holiday gatherings with family members all vying for a slice of heaven. That is, if it even makes it out of the […]
