Like the chorizo of Hawaii, Portuguese sausage is a fresh or smoked sweet-spicy sausage that's used in breakfast dishes, plate lunches, and at many tailgates. This recipe combines Portuguese sausage with other local flavors -- sweet onion and sweet bread - for a Hawaiian slant on classic Thanksgiving stuffing.
During our trip to the Tuscan countryside, we came across one of the most interesting pastas we'd had in a long time. Made with burrata, saffron, and guanciale, it's an easy pasta that's decadent and totally amazing.
We'll admit it: we're major fan girls of Giada DiLaurentiis because, well, tbh, we feel like we relate to her. We too are from California, we too love all things Italy, and our cooking is very much inspired by both places. So it's no surprise that we swooned when we saw her newest book, Giada’s I...
While road tripping to Texas I found myself at La Gloria in San Antonio. They specialize in Mexican street food and they make tons of tlayudas aka the king of Oaxacan street food. But, like a lot of Mexican food that has made it's way to Texas, this has become it's own thing, which is why at this TexMex restaurant they call it Mexican Pizza.
On my first trip to Italy, I'd religiously finish the day with a cone of straciatella gelato while the adults would sip on ice-cold Limoncello.

One of my fave moments during my recent trip to the Amalfi coast was at the hillside town of Ravello where I spent a lazy day poolside. While there I tried these super light elderflower spritzes and I've quickly become a fan.
There are times you gotta go 100% classic. Like with tiramisu. A few quality ingredients and a little extra effort means the difference between a soggy or heavy version or a light, airy, not-too-sweet one like this recipe!
Santa Ynez has a downtown that looks like it's a freeze frame from an old Western movie, but then has gems like SY Kitchen. We couldn't stop raving about this Fusilli alla Salsiccia so I recreated it here; but, let's be real, you should travel there to taste for yourself!
If you know me, then you know I have a thing for Piri Piri sauce, which explains my love for Nando's Peri Peri joint. When we were filming Off Menu in Washington DC, I ate there and got the chicken with tons of mashed peas. The mashed peas are buttery but have herbs and a good amount of chili heat, which make them the inspiration for this Smashed Spicy Pea Bruschetta.
