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. […]

slow-cooker gumbo

What do you do when you have about 6 cups of okra in the fridge? Make gumbo, of course! So at the farmer’s market last weekend I scored 2 overflowing pints of okra for just $4 total! Other vendors at the market were selling smaller pints for $3.50 each. So keep in mind it pays […]

summer vegetable pie

I recently went to my favorite you-pick farm and came home with 40+ pounds of tomatoes, 6 pounds of blackberries, and 2 pounds of these beauts: Oh man, are these eggplants amazing. I’ve grown up eating and loving the big, purple globe eggplants. But then I tried these. Oh, man. I’ve been missing out! These […]

panzanella

I heard of panzanella several years ago watching Giada on one of my regular Food-Network binges back when I had access to cable. The theory was completely appealing to me — bread, check. Tomatoes, check — but I never got around to trying one. In Italy earlier this summer I had the opportunity to try […]
