Slow-Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Tomato Pie

I am so. Freakin‘. Excited. for tomatoes. While I’ve been busy crying over my one lone tomato on my plant at home (with two new potentials as of last night, yippee!), my CSA has delivered. I got to take up to 3 pounds with last week’s pick-up, and you better believe I took every last […]

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 […]

Frittata for One

I had something like this at brunch with friends a few months ago. At the time I wasn’t crazy about the particular dish but I liked the concept. I knew with some customization, I could make it perfect. And I’d also been making a lot of omelets (necessary when you get a dozen eggs a […]
