French Lentils with Roasted Root Vegetables

Print Friendly

Meatless!  . . . Tuesday. I’ll admit, I’m not that that creative with vegetarian cooking. Back in the day when I was jazzed about expanding my vegetarian horizons, I tried making tofu a lot. I deep fried little strips. I pan fried little squares. I slipped silken blobs into soups. I even tried baking it! […]

Homemade Baby Food. Four Recipes, Yo.

Print Friendly

Okay, you guys, baby food is ugly. This has been your warning. But it’s soooo easy to make and I just couldn’t get through this phase without sharing a few of my go-to purees for the gremlins. And no, they’re not going to be gremlins for Halloween. Which actually breaks my heart because I seriously […]

And I mean cotton-pickin’ simple. It’s the end of summer. We ain’t got no time for riff raff. Ain’t got no time for willy nilly. Ain’t got no time for whip snip dipper dap snickery do loo. (I don’t have answers.) This is so simple it’s plain silly. But I like it! I like silly. […]

Thai Three-Bean Salad

Print Friendly

I’ve been just Thai-ing to show you this. You’re already mad at me. I created this recipe for my in-laws’ huge annual 4th of July pool party in Fayetteville. I was absurdly excited about it, until I set it down on the serving table next to exactly 38426534 other salads. Blast! It was still good […]

Potato and Pepper Pizza with a Roasted Garlic Thyme Sauce

Print Friendly

Carbs on carbs. Just the way I like it. But it’s not even that, fully. It’s mostly that. It’s probably 65% that. It’s the sauce! It’s 37% the sauce. Because it’s (A LOT of) roasted garlic, fresh thyme, a touch of cream and a little bit of silky olive oil. BA-LENDED. It’s probably 47% the […]

Indian Roasted Potato Salad with Swiss Chard

Print Friendly

Now this is a salad. But not like salad salad. More like SALAD, BABY. Actually, when I made it, Aaron and I tasted it together and I said, “It’s hearty! Definitely could be a side dish.” But he spoke right at the same time and said, “Whoa! This is definitely more like a salad.” So […]

Sun-Dried Tomato and Mascarpone Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I just figured out your new favorite lunch of all time. It involves sun-dried tomatoes (yes, again). And mascarpone cheese. And the grainiest, sproutiest bread you can find. A kiss and half of butter. Your giddy pants. Like always, I buy a tub of the mascarpone cheese with a fat stash of plans to make […]

Baked Spicy Cornbread Croutons

Print Friendly

As in CORNBREAD cornbread. Moist (sorry) yet crumbly (sorry.) Dense (sorry?) yet light (not sorry?) Spicy (no need to be sorry) yet sweet (nowhere near sorry.) Are you already worn out? Sorry. Remember the game Sorry? Me, too. That’s all I had to say. Anytime I say the word sorry I say it like Gilly […]
