Fish Tacos

Hello from the other side. I wanted to post a thousand meals… Sorry it’s been so long, but this little guy named Atlas has been consuming my life. Between walks, trips to the dog park, and obedience classes, it’s hard enough to squeeze in a workout and cook something by rote for dinner. Don’t worry, […]

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 […]

Cucumber-Tomato Salad

It’s that time of year, when gardens and CSA bags are overflowing with cucumbers. As soon as I picked up my newest pile on Saturday morning, I knew what I wanted to make. So I grabbed some ground lamb out of the freezer to thaw, threw together some tzatziki sauce, and whipped up this salad […]

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Ah, early summer. My CSA started back up for summer two short weeks ago and yet, I am already drowning in produce. But, you know, in a good way. Since it’s just the two of us, we tend to have more than we can feasibly use. A lot goes into the freezer (which makes ice […]

Pesto Pork Tenderloin with Potatoes & Carrots

This is a two-for-one recipe today, since I’ve been less than diligent with posts lately! I was out of town this past weekend in Asheville, NC. They have such a thriving local food culture — tons of restaurants featuring local and sustainable ingredients, supporting their local farms and the environment. It was really cool and […]

Perfect Potatoes

So honestly, this post was supposed to be called The Perfect Omelette. But after a flipping mishap that splattered my cooktop, clothes, and face with egg (Cue “We Will Rock You”…), I decided this post would instead be about the pan-crisped potatoes I served alongside that omelette (which was destined to become a scramble). But […]

Sweet Potato and Beet Galette

You guys. I just made the prettiest dinner ever. And it was delicious. AND easy! How often do those stars align?! This is fancy enough for a party, maybe a Thanksgiving appetizer. Your friends will think you slaved away in the kitchen all day, and you’ll smile slyly because you know it is simple enough […]

Autumn Kabobs

I love grilling in the fall because it’s not too hot to hang around outside, and not too cold yet that you need to wear mittens while wielding tongs. Although today it was in the 80’s so I guess this doesn’t matter anyway, does it? The point is, October heatwave notwithstanding, the produce has turned […]

Tomatillo Salsa

One of my favorite foods is tomatoes (in case you haven’t noticed lately). And one of my favorite foods made from that favorite food is salsa. As in, when I was a kid, if we ran out of tortilla chips but still had some salsa, I would dump the little broken pieces and crumbs into […]

Basics: Pesto

Nothing says “summer” like a huge batch of basil pesto. The stuff you buy at the store can’t hold a candle to the real deal, and it couldn’t be easier! As you can see, I am just swimming in basil. So I pruned down my bushes, gave it a quick bath and spin-dry, and crammed […]
