Red beans & rice
It's not Monday but red beans & rice anyway. Recipe from John Besh's My New Orleans.
Wontons are what's up
Wonton soup with fried pork fat and shallots.
Chocolate Truffle Coated with Pistachios.
John Thorne's cheesecake.
Yes. I always make this much.

Cayenne chile with breakfast? Yes, please. This beauty was from my Dad's garden.
Simple big bread from Jacques Pépin.
This is my favorite soup, ever! Homemade chicken broth, rice noodles, cilantro, scallions, mung bean sprouts, lime, jalapeño slices, and fried shallots. Mind blown.
Not just any cookie
Bouchon Bakery's chocolate chip cookie. I could share, but why?
Never underestimate how good homemade chicken broth is. I let mine cook for at least eight hours. Here it is with shredded chicken, fideos, and sliced jalapeños. Almost all soups deserve fresh jalapeño slices.
There can only be one
Me & cousin Amanda with my favorite hot sauce, Marie Sharp's extra hot habanero. I'm totally addicted.
Toasted bread, summer tomatoes, fresh pesto, and mozzarella.
All good food starts here: roasted onion, tomato, garlic, and chiles.
Chicken thighs braised in tomatillo salsa, summer squashes, corn, and queso fresco.
It's always good to know a great gardner. They will hand you bags of squash in the summer. Here are braised pork chops in guajillo chile sauce. A Rico family original.
