Spicy White Bean and Greens Soup

Spicy White Bean and Greens Soup

So strange, but I got bloodwork done for a routine physical and my cholesterol was slightly high. I realized I’d been eating more meat than ever, mostly because my husband likes it; that being said, he’d just watched that documentary on Netflix, Game Changer. He liked the idea of dialing down meat, finally taking...

Cast Iron Pan Pizza

Cast Iron Pan Pizza

OH my word. I think I ate at Pizza Hut once in my life, clutching my book-it coupon, but it was memorable. That greasy crust on the “personal pan pizza” was marked on my memory in a very intense way; when I saw this recipe in my ATK magazine I couldn’t wait to give...

Tahini Banana Snack Cake

Tahini Banana Snack Cake

There have been a lot of healthy recipes lately and it’s time for something delectable. This recipe comes straight from my favorite cookbook for kids, The (surprise surprise) America’s Test Kitchen Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs. Tessa also has the cook book version. Both books are AWESOME and the intros and guides are...

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

This recipe is from America’s test kitchen except for that I subbed 1 1/2 c. bittersweet chocolate chips for the 1 c. of pecans and the 1/2 c. of milk chocolate. Why? Because their method is perfection and yields the most dense, chewy cookie bars that you can imagine. The change is because I’m...
