In our “What’s for Dinner” segment this week, we’re talking alternative pastas, including those made from chickpea and lentil flours.
In “How’d You Make That?” Joy walks you through cooking up a tofu frittata.
Also related to our recent trip to New York to attend the IACP conference: We got to eat at one of our very favorite fast casual restaurants, Dig Inn. Our veggie-packed meals from Dig Inn helped Marisa cross the finish line for her next book and the both of us power up for the session we led at the conference. We wish this small chain would come to Philly next! On the plus side, we brought home inspiration for our own home cooking.
This week in “What We’re Loving” we sing a love song for split peas.

Joy has been experimenting with different (read: easier) ways to make the incredible, smooth, creamy, dreamy hummus from the Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking cookbook. Her latest tweak involves the Instant Pot.
As the cold weather descends (which it did very suddenly in Philadelphia), local salad greens typically become a memory. But some local farms are usual greenhouses to produce wonderful, salad friendly produce well into the off season. Joy and Marisa tell you where you can find it at our local markets.
How do you reverse engineer a restaurant dish? Joy and Marisa share their typical process.
