Easy Jambalaya

I almost called this Jammin’ Jambalaya but then I remembered I like having friends. Not only is it jammin’ though, it’zeeeeeezy. Not like 1-2-3 easy, but more like 1-2-3-4-5 easy. But not 1-2×87+369-44. It’s seriously just 1-2-3-4-5 easy. Good thing it’s not 862-13xthesquareofpie+infinitygoogle-81, right? I always hated math. This is actually a little thing that […]

Seared Indian Chicken over Coconut Rice

From a distance that looks like shredded parmesan, doesn’t it? “From a distance, the world looks blue and green, and the snow-capped mountains white.” I always hated that song. Bette sure is a fan of singing about eagles. Have you ever noticed? “From a distance the ocean meets the stream, and the eagle takes to […]

Vegetarian Coconut Rice Bowls

Vegetables on a Friday? OFF WITH HER HEAD. Hear me out! What if I told you they were seasoned and seared so properly you immediately hopped on your desk and rocked out some major Chandler Bing moves? What if I told you they were dripping in so much velvety coconut milk you immediately charged into […]

Easy Chicken and Vegetable Curry with Rice

This is so easy it’s almost a frickin’ joke. Especially if you use a rice cooker like these lazy pants. (I’m pointing to myself right now. And I’m crinkling up my lips to show sass.) So this is what happens. Are you ready? Don’t look at the next two photos because I want to tell […]

Middle Eastern Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Ummm, so I’m in New York City right now. I . . . have no idea. One moment I was staring at the wall scratching my armpits, and the next I’m in a cab in the middle of Manhattan on an impromptu trip with my home girl, Jessica. I’m sorry I called you home girl, […]

Baked Chicken Pinwheels and Late Summer Paella

When I was younger, like an hour ago, I used to want to own a charming little eatery. It would be a perfect mix of vintage tones and clean lines. Pale walls, rustic wooden little tables, candles in jars everywhere, fresh flowers, Stereolab on in the background, a little shaded patio. OMG will you come […]

Chicken Sausage Chili

“Um, this is totally chili,” says Bev to Aaron on the hottest day in all of eternity and then some. “I know, I know. Total accident. I was going for more of a beans and rice type of thing, and adding those chicken sausages you bought the other day, which was a genius move on […]

Chipotle Shrimp Salad Bowls

What started out as a sinless, innocent puppy love back in my college years, hath quickly and destructively grown into a full-blown, no holds barred, unmanageable, MUST HAVE OR DAH, injurious addiction.

Green Curry Chicken

These bowls right here? The ones in this picture? Oh – they are pretty cute, aren’t they? (T.J.Maxx. I KNOW.) But it’s what’s in them that can move mountains. Part seas. Launch rockets. Birth baby eagles. Tame frizzy hair. Celine Dion better MOVE OVER because I’m about to write the hittest of all hit songs […]
