Delicious Vegan Breakfast Hash

  Question: What do you serve your family when they visit for Thanksgiving? I’m not talking about the big meal. I’m sure you do the whole turkey and pie thing. (Or maybe you like to order takeout Chinese, who knows?) I’m talking about the rest of the meals. When your out-of-town family comes to stay for more […]

Rhubarb Vanilla Jam

We recently spent two weeks in Ireland. Ireland is gorgeous, in case you were wondering. Wildflowers are absolutely everywhere, peeking through the cracks in ancient stone walls and clumping along the sides of the roads. There are rock-bordered, green fields for miles, thanks to the soft, misty rain that falls almost every day. We loved exploring traditional Irish […]

Beet Hummus

Last week, I made these amazing beet burgers. Beets are lovely, aren’t they? I think beets are the most beautiful color in the whole world. But…I have to admit that I really hate to eat them plain.

Mothers of newborns need meals that require almost no effort to put on the table. Things that basically cook themselves while we attempt to entertain […]

Pico de Gallo

Olive Oil-Braised Spring Veggies

Recently a few good friends pointed out a personal flaw to me. (Don’t you love how friends can tell you the real truth?) As we sat around a huge table, stuffing waffles and frittatas into our mouths and rocking with cuddly babies, they gently informed me that although they like reading about food, they don’t […]

Couscous-Stuffed Eggplant with Tahini Sauce

Can I please just riff for a moment about things going wrong? Because you know that happens to you when you are making dinner, too. Like…sometimes I get all set and purchase all the ingredients I need to make a delicious gluten-free, vegan meal with my mom…and then when I open the pantry, my chickpeas […]
