Spicy Red Curry and Coconut Noodle Soup with Shrimp

As usual the weather in LA has been really funky, from 80˚F and sunny skies one day to a brisk 60˚F and overcast weather the next. It's always changing, day by day. Lately I've been craving noodles like crazy, specifically of the Asian variety (and nope, not preggos!). So with the combination of fluctuating temps and my weird noodle cravings, I've been making a lot ... read more

Creamy Chicken and Farro Soup

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season! Whether you celebrated it or not, I hope it was a relaxing time for all. I got to see my new nephew again and it was AH-MAZING! It's incredible to see how big he's gotten in a short 1 1/2 months! Dexter (my dog) is still not thrilled about losing his spot as the only "child" in ... read more

Hearty White Bean and Kale Soup

I’ve been semi-living off this hearty white bean and kale soup for the past two months. I know it’s probably annoying to hear someone living in warm, sunny weather to complain about the weather, especially when the rest of the nation is going through subzero temperatures, but I can’t help it. I miss the chill of the winter season. Yes I do. It’s hard to ... read more

Shanghai Soup Dumplings

Soup dumplings are one of our favorite things to go and eat. These little babies really melt in your mouth, and the trick for that is such an easy one. Geletanized stock...or Aspic! When we realized this, our minds were totally blown. What a good trick!! These dumplings are really easy to make, so don’t let the folding and crimping situations of the wonton wrappers ... read more

Spicy Black Bean Soup

It has been unbearably hot in Los Angeles the last couple of days. I get really angry when I’m too hot, and my face is in a permanent state of red, and I sweat too much. I hate it. Hate it bad. Ironically, we are posting a soup recipe today. Something I would totally not eat during this weather. So I would like to dedicate ... read more

Roasted Cauliflower and Parsnip Soup

Did everyone have a good Christmas? I was in Idaho, where it wasn’t as cold as I would have thought. There was snow on the ground, but nothing fresh. It was the kind of snow that was crunchy, and for some reason I always think about freezer burn when I encounter this kind of snow. My favorite part is this beef rib roast my step ... read more

Pumpkin Beer Cheese Soup

Hi Guys! If you haven't notice, Teri and I are stoked about the fall season. Not only do we get to put on our cozy clothes (if LA will just hurry up and make up its freakin' mind about the weather!!), but we get make cozy dishes and eat cozy foods! Today we have beer cheese soup. I grew up a mere hop-skip away from ... read more

Egg Drop Soup

There are two kinds of people, people who turn red when they are embarrassed, and people that do not. I can feel the blood travel from torso into my face when I am embarrassed enough to turn red, and I know it is happening. There is nothing I can do about it, and it sucks. The thing about turning red is you can’t just act ... read more

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Hi hi hi! It's been one of those weeks for me where you run around and wake up in the middle of the night with thoughts of things to do and things to buy. I just moved into a new studio that is super awesome, and it makes me feel important. I will post pictures soon. The new studio is where all the new SFB ... read more

Creamy Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup

Hi All! The very first time I had REAL tomato-basil soup for the first time at The Noodle Cafe when I was about 12 or 13. This little gem is in a small suburb of Chicago (where I grew up) and to this day it's still one of my all time favorite restaurants. There are a few reasons for this: 1) The food is amazing. ... read more

Baked Chicken Rigatoni and a Roasted Poblano Bechamel

I've been having major carb cravings lately. I mean nothing really new about that I guess, but I've specifically been craving all the pastas....and not like fancy handmade pastas (which is actually one of my few food 'kryptonites') or simple garlic and buttered noodles pasta, but extra creamy, baked pastas. At first I set out to make one of my favorite baked macaroni and cheese ... read more

Roasted Tomato Salsa

I recently remade this recipe and forgot how yummy it is. In fact I had it for dinner with a beer and it was a glorious way to welcome in the weekend. This salsa really is so good, and a perfect way to use up those beautiful tomatoes we are all seeing at the farmers market. Consider this a reminder to make some amazing delicious ... read more

We have a studio we work out of, and part of the studio space is dedicated to props. We buy props pretty much anytime ... read more

Farfalle with a Creamy White Bean and Roasted Garlic Sauce

Lately I’ve been trying to eat better; not necessarily get all crazy with getting on a “diet” (mostly because that word freaks me out), but just by trying to modify some of my favorite foods so I’m not eating bacon cheeseburgers, whole fat cream pastas, loaded pizzas, and rich and creamy pate everyday. One of the things I’ve been doing lately is trying to modify ... read more
