Seaweed Pasta

Seaweed Pasta

In full disclosure, I haven't made pasta very many times in my life. But my husband just received his great-grandmother's pasta maker. His great-grandmother was born in Italy and came to the United States, eventually landing in Pennsylvania. I don't know much more (yet!) about the history of this particular pasta maker, but it has been an inspiration to start making fresh pasta. I think making pasta is much easier if you have a stand mixer. We don't. So we kneaded it by hand, which took a long time and constantly had me questioning if we were doing this right....

Seaweed Snack Mix

Seaweed Snack Mix

This snack mix doesn't need too much of an introduction -- it should come with a warning though: it is seriously addicting. Something about the combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy makes this a snack mix that will satisfy and keep you coming back for more! This recipe can be made with lots of substitutions or alterations: use any nut if you don't have cashews, or use maple syrup instead of honey. Ingredients 1 ½ cup of cashews ¼ cup of sesame seeds 1 tablespoon olive oil  2 tablespoons of honey*  1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar  1 teaspoon turmeric  1...

Grilled Oysters with Seaweed Butter

Grilled Oysters with Seaweed Butter

It's no secret that the folks at Hog Island Oyster Co are big time heroes of ours! They are true leaders in sustainable shellfish farming, environmental stewardship, and science-informed aquaculture. They're the best. And their oysters?! Out of this world! So when they created a Seaweed Butter for grilled oysters with ... our Spicy Seaweed Flakes (!!) ... we were beyond thrilled. If you haven't had grilled oysters, let me say: it might be a hard sell for a true oyster fan (HOW CAN YOU BEAT SLURPING FRESH OYSTERS?!) but these grilled oysters are incredible. For anyone who doesn't eat...

The Best Dang Grilled Corn (Golden State Grilled Corn)

The Best Dang Grilled Corn (Golden State Grilled Corn)

I served this corn at a recent dinner party and it was *truly* called the best corn ever. The combination of sweet, mild chile powder, toasted garlic, and savory seaweed flakes in the Golden State Seasoning Salt creates a perfect blend for slightly carmelized, sweet corn. The garlicky yogurt sauce is optional -- and honestly, hard to wait around for, so definitely prepare it ahead of time. The corn is perfectluy lovely (and vegan) on its own. Ingredients: 6 ears of corn, shucked Extra virgin olive oil  4-6 Tbsp golden state seasoning salt 4 scallions, thinly sliced 1 bunch cilantro,...
