Watermelon-Jalapeno Daiquiri

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 […]

Peach Guacamole

It is no secret that I looooove guac. It was one of my major cravings as soon as I got home from Italy. I make it at least once a week, and I’m not embarrassed to oh-so-subtly eat every last bit out of the bowl. Usually I reserve this sort of behavior for when I’m […]

Carrot Soup

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Well, I’m not exactly the first person to make carrot soup but it’s definitely necessary and considering I’ve never even had carrot soup before today, it kinda feels like an invention. At least to me. I’ve mentioned that I’m not the biggest fan of carrots, and yet […]

Turnip-Leek Soup

Happy new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays; I certainly had a blast (hence the lack of posts). But after the debauchery of eating out, parties, and lots and lots of beers that lasted from Thanksgiving til New Year’s Eve, I am so, so ready to refocus and refresh. It’s been wonderful to read […]

Pumpkin Pie Hummus

It’s so easy this time of year to give into store-bought (read: highly processed junk) treats. We tell ourselves it’s okay to indulge in something once in a while…but this time of year, when is it ever once? Especially when there’s the office and schools overflowing with these goodies, not to mention all the parties […]

Farrisotto with Butternut Squash and Cranberries

What is more autumnal than winter squash and cranberries and some nutty, al dente farro? Not much. I’ve been leaning heavily on these squash-y, grain-y combos lately. They feel so comforting now that the evenings are chilly, and the savory textures are a world away from the crisp sweetness of summer. The first time I […]

Apple-Olive Oil Cake

I got a bit of a craving to bake something today, and with about 20 pounds of apples to go through still, I needed a recipe that called for more than 1 apple. Unfortunately, so many recipes uses fruit as an afterthought or a flavoring, rather than the star ingredient. Honestly, all too often sugar […]

Black Bean Hummus

This recipe isn’t glamorous, or even particularly attractive, but damn is it tasty. As in, I was licking the spatula. And the spoon. And the knife I used to spread it on our sandwiches. And the food processor blade (Please don’t do this. It is a terrible idea.). What is it about beans, tahini, olive […]
