From my farmer's market adventure, I had quite a bit of cilantro left. Also, since I had gone on a falafel binge, I hadn't eaten meat in a while. And, since I was craving some Indian food, I decided to make some chicken curry instead of order from Bricklane.

As you recall, my sister went to Buenos Aires over the summer. She came back with some dulce de leche. Wait, scratch that. She came back with this:
Totally unbeknownst to me, of course. I wanted to bake cookies, and it was her snack day for her volleyball team. So, I decided that I had to make something with dulce de leche.

Any time I go to the Union Square farmer's market, my eyes are always bigger than my reusable bags and eyes. I had been wanting to make some squash blossoms all summer long, but never really acted on it. So, finally I saw some at the market and got them on the spot. The first time I had squash blossoms was last summer at Pure Food and Wine. They were so amazing! I guess I should see if Pure has a cookbook I can get the recipe from.

Gnocchi is by far my favorite dish at any Italian restaurant. I love it when it is paired with a meat like proscuitto, or pancetta. I also love it with truffle oil or pesto. I most recently had it at Paprika, and it was pillowy soft melt in your mouth amazing. Other notable places I've had it at Alta (equally melt in your mouth delish) and Araxi in Whistler (with lamb and black truffles. OHHHH EMMMM GEEEE).

Marisa's September 2010 Cooking Light magazine had a lot of great fall recipes I really want to try. I love fall. It is by far my favorite season for so many reasons. The air is cool and crisp, so I can blow dry my hair and it won't fro out. Sweaters, leggings and boots are great outfits. The subway trains aren't 1,000 degrees and I don't sweat buckets on my way to work (no, I was not in spin class...just waiting for the 6 train). I love apples and pumpkins and fall squash. I also love halloween, which is the best fall holiday EVER. Coincidentally, I also love sangria. Apples and sangria? Sold.
