Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes

Truth be told, breakfast isn’t my favorite. If you wake up starving, you don’t want to spend an hour cooking before you eat. Not to mention I’m not crazy about sweets in the morning, even though Scott loves nothing more than dessert for breakfast. Usually it’s quick and easy eggs for me on the weekend, […]

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 […]

Pumpkin Ravioli with Greens and Feta Filling

This recipe is quite ambitious and I almost didn’t post it. But then I figured I spent way too much time on it not to share it. Plus the filling is delicious and it’s worth it just for that. This is the kind of recipe you make when you want to impress someone. Because who […]

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 […]

Basics: Whole-Wheat Tortillas

When was the last time you flipped over a package of flour tortillas and checked out the ingredients? It ain’t pretty. I used to eat Mission Carb-Balance tortillas, thinking they were a better choice than the regular ones. Well, here’s the ingredient list: Water, Modified Food Starch, Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced […]

Fried Green Tomatoes

This is a recipe I only make once a year. I mean, you can’t really buy green tomatoes at the grocery store, and the tomatoes in my garden are too few (and too small) to justify picking them before they’re ripe. So I have to wait til I go to the u-pick farm in the […]

Shrimp Scampi

They say the way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach. I’m pretty sure this recipe is the basis for that quote. The very first meal I cooked for my boyfriend, on a cold February night in 2010, was shrimp scampi. It was my very first time attempting it (though I’ve been […]

Bison Sliders

Summer means burgers! They’re everywhere this time of year. I mean, have you been to a cookout lately?  But rather than going with mediocre-tasting, low-grade beef loaded with who-knows-what, why not pick up some delicious grass-fed beef or bison? Really kick that patty up a notch! At a cookout we hosted a few weeks ago, I grilled […]

Blueberry Cornbread

You know it’s a good weekend when on Saturday, you pick several pounds of blueberries and sweet cherries and on Sunday, you PR in a 5K. Well, I had a great weekend, because I did both of those things and also made a pretty amazing dinner tonight. Ususally on Sundays, we go over to Scott’s […]

Almost-healthy brownies

This morning, before I even got out of bed (don’t judge), I emailed my mom asking for the brownie recipe I grew up with. I knew they weren’t healthy. I knew I wanted to make them over. My mom told me that the recipe was her paternal grandmother’s, a woman I never got to meet. […]
