Milkbar Crack Pie

  This recipe is straight from Christina Tosi’s Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook.  Crack Pie is my favorite dessert and I’m so happy with how these turned out, they were spot on.  The only difference I’ll make is to maybe multiple the oat cookie recipe 1.5x for more crust.  Other than that, these were perfect! CRACK…

Momofuku: Roasted Brussel Sprouts/Cauliflower in a Fish Sauce Vinagrette

This was one of my favorite appetizers from Momofuku.  It’s definitely not something to be eaten by itself as it can get a little salty but it’s a really good side dish when eaten in moderation.  This recipe was modified from David’s Chang’s cookbook, Momofuku.  Makes about 8-10 servings. Ingredients: Brussels sprouts Cauliflower Fish Sauce…

Okay this I’d actually eat every day for a week.  It’s light, refreshing, and has just the right amount of flavor.  The star of the dish is definitely the avocado salsa cause the chicken is nothing without it, but it goes really well with the charred flavor you get from using an actual BBQ grill….

Momofuku Milkbar’s Cornflake Marshmallow Crunch Cookie (Copycat Recipe)

I love, love, love sweet and salty so this cookie is my favorite!  It’s from Christina Tosi’s Momofuku Milk Bar Bakery in NYC.  The combination of sweet/salty buttered cornflake crunchies and roasted marshmallow is a match made in heaven.  I have yet to taste the real thing but with this copycat recipe that my sister…

Meal Prep: Creamy Garlic Mushroom Parmesan Chicken

Okay this is not the healthiest of recipes for meal prep, it’s actually rich af but if paired with something light like a kale salad or something then it’ll make up for it lol.  The sauce is so good, like something you’d get from a restaurant.  It’s basically an upgraded version of Alfredo sauce.  I’d definitely use…
