Cheese is crucial to this dish.

When I was in Italy last summer, one of the best things I ate was a lasagne dish with homemade pasta, bechamel sauce, and bolognese sauce. In Bologna, of course, with a generous pour of red wine in my glass, too. My aunt and I had a very relaxing couple of days to close out […]

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “You don’t post for almost 2 months and then you give us a SALAD?!” But guys. This salad. It sounds so simple on the surface, right? Beets and goat cheese, hasn’t that been done before? Yeah yeah, but not like this. Sure, you can roast beets at 400 degrees […]

Mango-Carrot Smoothie

Happy new year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 flew by. I had such a great year and I hope you did too. I traveled — a lot. Asheville, NC, San Diego, Madison, WI/Chicago, Italy, Boston, a Midwest Thanksgiving roadtrip, Tampa, and finally Hawaii. I am so lucky that I got these opportunities to travel […]

Chicken and farro soup

Soup season is officially upon us, people! The weather lately has been decidedly dreary, with plenty of rain and wind and chilly temps. I knew when I got home today that it would be soup for dinner. A few days ago I posted an article on my Facebook page extolling the benefits of eating and […]

roasted broccoli

Alright, so I’ll be upfront with you here: Roasted broccoli is nothing new, but if you haven’t been eating yours this way, you are seriously missing out. This is an easy way to totally elevate an everyday, ho-hum side dish. You’ll seriously consider ever going back to steamed. I’d been waiting all summer for broccoli. […]

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

This recipe is so quick and easy I almost feel like it’s too good to be true. But it’s not! Isn’t that the best? And I bet you have all the ingredients at home right now. Yeah, really. Broccoli cheddar soup is a restaurant favorite, but you and I both know it’s not exactly the […]

beef stew

The leaves are changing, there’s a nip in the air (at least in the mornings), and the days are getting shorter. That can only mean one thing: Soup’s on! Well, in this case…stew’s on. I broke out the Dutch oven for this one and let it simmer away slowly on a Sunday afternoon while I […]

veggie lasagne

First off, sorry for the radio silence. Sometimes the weather is just too nice to spend evenings writing blog posts…sometimes I’m awfully busy with I don’t even know what, and all I can think to make is endless nights of tacos…sometimes I try to cook some things that sound good in my head but don’t […]

Watermelon-Jalapeno Daquiri

It’s Friday. You’ve had a long week. You deserve a cocktail. This one is perfect for a late summer evening. The watermelon is cool and crisp, yet the jalapeno warms your throat — and the booze warms you from the inside. Of course, if you’ve got tequila you can turn this into a margarita. Experimentation […]

Huevos rancheros

Whenever I go out for breakfast, I usually base my decision on two things: What options include avocado? Are there huevos rancheros on the menu? If there are huevos topped with avocado — done deal. So on the rare weekend mornings I have leftover tortillas at home, I take a break from frittatas for one. […]
