Frittata with Broccoli and Turmeric

Frittata with Broccoli and Turmeric

Do you say turmeric or “toomeric”? Definitely got in a nice, civil argument with a friend about it. Turns out both ways work. I love when, in a conversation, you both keep using it the way you think it’s supposed to be pronounced. Like, “I’ve started taking turmeric supplements”. “Oh yeah? I cook with...

Italian Cheese Dip with Walnuts and Honey

Italian Cheese Dip with Walnuts and Honey

I came to the realization a few years ago that ultimately (except for the rare person like my friend Alison), most people just want warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert. I could make something fancy like panna cotta or pavlova and that would be nice, but we are basically just children and we just...

Soppressata and Arugula Pizza

Soppressata and Arugula Pizza

Pulled this sheet from Real Simple, date unknown (found it deep in my file). I love when sweet, spicy and salty converge and with this ingredient list, I knew that was a definite possibility. It was listed as an “Easy Dinner 2” but let me tell you, folks, this pizza is no weeknight afterthought....

Easy Chocolate Pot de Creme

Easy Chocolate Pot de Creme

The Creme should have an accent over the first e, but just ask me if I know how to do that. This was a recipe I’d pulled out of my America’s Test Kitchen magazine in 2008. That was before I even got married! I love that about food – this recipe is just as...

Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

With all that the online world has to offer when it comes to recipes, I still love magazines and I still tear out recipes I want to try and keep them in a file. I’ve had too many Pinterest fails – gorgeous photos and results that are seriously lacking in flavor. This recipe comes...

Southwestern Pork and Mango Skewers with Avocado Mash

Southwestern Pork and Mango Skewers with Avocado Mash

Another healthy one for the resolutioners (which is me this year, sort of). I get hurt with my birthday timing. As of January first I’m like, ok, time to go veggie-heavy and lose the holiday weight. Then my birthday comes on the 15th and I’m like, “I’ll have the burger. And fries. And beer.”...

Napa Cabbage Slaw with Apple and Walnuts

Napa Cabbage Slaw with Apple and Walnuts

I love cabbage, especially in slaw, and especially when that slaw isn’t a mayo-y mess. When I’ve tried to “wing it” in the past, I’m never pleased with the result. A few reasons why this recipe just nailed it. One, Napa cabbage (sold at every grocery store, though you may never have noticed it)...

Chipwiches

Chipwiches

I love that I got the red dotted underline on this post’s title. Yes, chipwich isn’t technically a word but everyone in the English speaking world knows what one is, especially if they’ve ever partook of the magic that is the Ice Cream Truck. So, America’s Test Kitchen, like usual, found a way to...

Pepper Steak

Pepper Steak

Pepper steak is a recipe I grew up eating, but it’s certainly relevant today. Naturally dairy and gluten free, it also happens to be wintertime comfort food at its healthiest. Serve it over cauliflower rice for a really light, nutrient rich, protein packed weeknight dinner.
