First Bite: Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Muffins

Posted by piphunt on April 15, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

A couple weeks ago I headed into the Tetons with some fellow Marmots for our annual winter catalogue shoot. Group camping trips are an easy target for accidental gluten/dairy/whatever consumption, especially since I wasn’t partaking in the grocery trip. Losing control over my food can send me into a state of panic – what if […]

Comfort Food: Shepherd’s Pie

Posted by piphunt on February 2, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

I’m on a comfort food mission. This dish is something that was often in our fridge or freezer growing up. It’s inexpensive, easy to make, freezes well and hits the comfort food spot. What’s not to love? I even have my roommate Amy’s approval, as she ended up eating it for breakfast and lunch this […]

Crock Pot: Getting back to your root veggies

Posted by piphunt on January 30, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

Winter makes me think of root veggies: butternut squash, carrots, sweet potato, parsnips, suede, celeriac. It’s the time of year I want to turn my oven on and fill up the whole house with the warmth and toasty smell as the vegetables caramelize slowly. However, roasting veggies can take way too long when I get […]

Comfort Food: Smoothered Shrimp and Okra

Posted by piphunt on January 19, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

Jamon loves okra. The first time I ever tried it was in Vegas last year, it was only an appetizer, but at first bite I knew that I could just eat a bowl of it and be happy. O man. It was so yummy. We licked the plate clean. Since then, I’ve been on the […]

Dinner on the fly: A Quick and Easy Curry

Posted by piphunt on January 12, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

I love experimenting in the kitchen. Sometimes it’s a slow, multi-step process; a dance through the silence of my house, no music, no tv, no roommate. I can revel in the stillness and silence. My only company is the chop, chop, chop of my knife, the bubble of the pot, the sizzle of onions carmelizing […]

Dinner with friends: Chicken Paprikash

Posted by piphunt on January 9, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

I don’t even know what we were laughing about but the feeling lingered and I thought, “when was the last time I laughed that hard?”. Laughter used to be synonymous with life. But the last couple years, I don’ t think I laugh as often or as hard as I used to. It made me […]

Salmon Burgers

Posted by piphunt on January 6, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

I had never thought about making salmon burgers till I saw a recipe for them on Elana’s blog over the summer. I made the recipe from her blog (without adding or substituting anything!) and it was absolutely delicious. I rarely find myself in a pinch for meal ideas, but after working the 9-5 and coaching […]

Crock Pot: Chili – without the beans

Posted by piphunt on January 4, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

  First off, I got a Crock Pot for Christmas! Yay! I’m very, very excited about this. Mike told ┬áme that I better use it more than twice…. I don’t think that will be a problem. The question is, can I use it twice in a 24 hour period?

A Lazy breakfast (that was fast and easy)

Posted by piphunt on January 3, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

I bought Paleo Comfort Foods for Jamon’s mom and step-dad for Christmas, I didn’t even have a chance to look through all the recipes (shhhh) but the picture of this one stuck with me. I didn’t grow up with eggs in a basket, but I can clearly remember the first day I saw Jim making […]

Ringing in the 2012 with Scallops

Posted by piphunt on January 1, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, The Little Chef

Last night I wanted to make something special. I was almost inspired. Almost. I was also tired, cranky, and dehydrated from coaching in the balmy 4 degrees at Alta all day. Wait, wasn’t it 55 on Friday? When did it suddenly decide to be winter? I mean, it’s cool and all, just please bring us […]
