There comes a moment in everyone’s life when you realize sandwiches for dinner are the only way to live. Especially on nights when there’s no other way to cradle your mangled soul after finding out the whole Friends thing is a hoax. We’ve been HAD. But enough about that. We have melted brie to attend […]

Shrimp Naan Pizzas with Thai Coconut Arugula Pesto

I . . . don’t even know where to begin. Perhaps that reejankulously long title? It’s because I couldn’t leave any word out! And believe me, this is watered down from what it was before. I was going to call it Shrimp Arugula Garlic Ginger Green Curry Paste Coconut Sugar Double Pepper Naan Cilantro Lime […]

Vegetarian Barley Toss

Taste the rainbow? Wait, don’t sue me! Actually, let me try to come up with my own new colorful, healthy slogan, eh!? Okay, here goes: “Taste all that color, chach mcgrach.” Ehhh, boring. “It’s like eating crayons, but not as waxy.” Why do I kind of like that?   “Because sweating in Hypercolor is sexy.” […]

Grilled Tilapia Salad and Chicken Parmesan Salad

I guess I’m not a . . . total liar. After all, I guess it is possible to have too many bites of chewy on the inside, crusty on the outside pizza with melted, stringy mozzarella, or flaky biscuits with warm butter and jam . . . ugh, or freshly baked loaves of bread straight […]

Open-Faced Vegetable and Prosciutto Melts

Our garden is already absolutely insane. Just look at this. It might not look like much to the naked eye, but I can assure you, it’s pretty tow up. And oops, in need of weeding. This isn’t even the entire thing! We have little beds along most of the fences. Of tomatoes. Of course. Each […]

Roast Beef, Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Panini

Whoa there, beefy mcbeeferpants! I didn’t mean to post two beef-a-roo (or is it beef-a-MOO? OHHHHH) recipes two days in a row. Maybe I’m low on iron? Maybe a message was subliminally sent to me in cloud formation from the sky? Maybe I’m still sad that Elise got sent home on American Idol but relieved […]

Pork Kebabs with Apples and Potatoes

Excuse me but, where’s winter? I’ve looked under the bed, on the side of the house and in my purse and I’m not seeing it. I even looked at our Kansas City long range forecast and there’s like, no sign of the old man. I’ve always wanted to say “long range.” I feel so grown […]

Creamy Penne with Blue Cheese, Arugula and Toasted Walnuts

This recipe makes me sing a little Dionne Warwick tune that I’m absolutely positive you treasure in your heart as much as I do. The classic, “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again.” Except the lyrics go like this in my head: “What do you get when you fall in love? A bucket of penne with […]
