It’s time to introduce one of my favorite cooking methods: the salt dome.
On a recent trip to NYC I scored some incredible culinary lavender at the Union Square Market and decided to put it to good use. For those who have never cooked with lavender before, it is highly, highly suggested.
Also, Chemist in the Kitchen is officially 3 months old! WOW how the time flies, and it’s all thanks to that delicious gluten-free sweet potato gnocchi that became my first post ever. Thank you all for your support and encouragement in this food blog journey so far!
My hot-blooded Latina mother has never granted me the privilege to write down any of the family recipes. Normally, she guards her secret formulas with sharp knives and booby traps, but recently she trusted me with the family beef empanada recipe. Little does she know that I have decided to share it with all of you wonderful people on my food blog! (Mamá, if you’re reading this: Lo siento mucho de verdad mamá… ¡No fue mi intención lastimarte!)
Remember how last week I had mentioned that I don’t have an Italian nonna to impress? Well, now I wish I did, because this pizza dough recipe would make her proud!
