Nikoli’s Kitchen

Nikoli’s Kitchen

Welcome everyone! This show is all about my journey of positivity and scratch-made food, inside the kitchen and out. I’m not a chef, I’m just someone extremely passionate about food and trying to make the world a better place, one dish at a time. Every episode, I’ll talk about what’s happening in my world to try to help people, and I’ll share a featured recipe for you to make at home. Thank you so much for listening, and thank you so much for coming on this journey with me.

I know it has been such a long time, but WELCOME BACK to Nikoli's Kitchen! In this week's episode I talk about where I've been and the "log jam" that is my brain, and I talk about making Challah Bread from scratch on a livestream and turning it into French Toast with strawberries and a cream cheese mascarpone drizzle! Thank you so much for tuning in, and make sure you come back every week for a brand new episode!

Welcome everyone to another brand new episode of Nikoli's Kitchen! This week it's our first featured recipe of season five, and we're talking about homemade ravioli! That's scratch-made pasta, marinara, AND cheese filling, hand-stamped and cooked to perfection (when they didn't explode).

Hello and welcome to season FIVE of Nikoli's Kitchen everyone! This week, no featured recipe- in fact, you'll find many episodes going forward will be missing them. The format of the show is changing. It will be singularly focused week to week on a single topic, like you're sitting down with me in the kitchen, maybe while we're eating, maybe while we're cooking, and like I'm just telling you what's going on in my life. I hope that ...

Hello and welcome to what will likely be the final episode of 2022! This week, I'm talking about this amazing Asian BBQ Sauce I made out of a lot of the leftovers and components of Asian dishes I've made on the show over the past year or so. I don't know Asian food very well, but I know BBQ sauce, and I was thrilled to try to chuck tamarind and palm sugar into one, and the results absolutely blew me away.

Welcome everyone to the first inter-season Quick Bite after season four! Today's "quick" bite isn't quite as "quick" in terms of cooking or preparation, but I promise you that nothing in the world says "stick to your ribs" food quite like my Smoked Cheddar Chicken Chili. The perfect bowl full of warmth and home for a cold winter evening, this chili is packed with decadent chili flavors, smoky chicken thighs, and rich cheddar cheese...

Buongiorno! Welcome to butchering Italian pronunciation on a new Nikoli's Kitchen! I've really wanted to do some kind of shredded braised beef dish, so I LET THE HEAT HIT THE MEAT and started building a ton of layers of flavor into this Pasta alla Genovese. Originally I wanted to make a version of a dish I made on my old food show a long time ago, a beef and onion ragu, but in researching it I came to find out that this is more wha...
