Meyer Lemon + Bacon Bucatini Pasta with Kale and Cauliflower – A Cozy Kitchen

I love a quick pasta, don’t you? It’s the perfect thing to have in your back pocket when it’s cold and chilly outside. I’m not gonna lie, I sometimes struggle with making these quick pastas interesting. A lot of times it’s just boring red marinara sauce and cheese. But Josh is great at this, grabbing…


Berry Crinkle Cookies

Crinkle cookies have always been super illusive to me. How do they crinkle? Why do they crinkle? Are they good? I have to say, they’ve always looked good to me. But how would they taste, I would question? The answer is…kinda good! I mean the chocolate ones are delicious. Like chocolate cakey cookies. What could…


Spicy Lobster Bucatini with Burrata (for Two) – A Cozy Kitchen

I feel like I haven’t talked about my super exciting life lately. Well, I spent the weekend doing work, working out and going to a Super Bowl party where I ate so many snacks that Monday required vegan meals ONLY. That halftime show was one of the most boring things my eyes have ever experienced….

(This post is sponsored by ALDI. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that keep A Cozy Kitchen cozy.) I’ve recently (re)discovered books on tape and this has leadled to some incredible and entertaining walks with Amelia.

Easy Cheese Dip Recipe – Best Appetizer for the Super Bowl or Any Party

This cheesy skillet dip is not so much a recipe as it is a description of the last-ditch attempt I regularly make to be a good dinner party host. A lifeboat made of melted cheese, if you will. Perhaps this sequence of events sounds familiar: you invite a handful of guests to a dinner party….

Sweet Meyer Lemon Wild Blueberry Cornbread – A Cozy Kitchen

I’m currently doing two things that are very topical: staring at the new Frank Ocean GQ cover and Marie Kondo-ing (yes, her name is a verb now) my entire kitchen. Or at least trying to. I realize that trying to get a totally aesthetically and pleasing organizational space requires a bit of an investment in…


Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry with Garlicky Bok Choy – A Cozy Kitchen

Before the holidays, I ate SO many cookies. Too many cookies. I was feeling a bit sluggish and vowed to eat super healthy at the beginning of the year. Basically, like everyone else in the world lol. But then I went to Peru and drank the water (from a glass of chicha that wasn’t boiled)…
