Smoky Spicy Three Bean Chili
This week it finally got cold. I can smell a crisp chill in the air. You know what that means. It’s chili season!! When I add chili powder and cumin to a big stewpot, my kitchen is instantly converted into a space of warmth and comfort. I have always found bean chilis to be more […]
Ages ago, I stumbled across a recipe that combined hummus and avocado together—two flavors I probably never would have thought to eat in the same bite. I always thought of hummus squarely within the tradition of Middle Eastern foods, while avocado belongs to the cuisines of South and Central America. But ever since I threw […]
Pickled Red Onions
I am basically convinced that pickled onions are the best condiment in the world. They are tangy and just a little sweet, with a crisp bite. You can put them on almost anything, from sandwiches to eggs to grain salads to tacos (and, trust me, when you do, you will be taking your food to […]
When I was a kid, if someone had asked me what my favorite foods were, I would have said chocolate, pizza, and broccoli. I’m not really sure how broccoli made this list. But I’m not taking it back. I do truly love pizza and broccoli, and they are also amazing together! Have you ever thrown […]
Breakfast is my favorite. It used to be my favorite because it was a great excuse to eat giant amounts of sugar in a socially acceptable way. Cinnamon buns, I’m looking at you. But these days, I’m pretty obsessed with eggs. And hollandaise. Oh, hollandaise, you make my heart skip a beat. When I go […]
Easiest Romesco Sauce with Grilled Cauliflower
Last week, we went to the beach. It was eventful, to say the least. (Just picture losing not one but two of your children for several heart-stopping minutes, while the third eats sand every single time you look away.) After we decided to stay off the beach (gee…I wonder why?), we basically spent the rest […]
Easy Southwestern Salads with Cumin-Roasted Sweet Potato
My six-year-old son recently reported to me that my favorite food is salad. Salad? I thought. No way. My favorite food is not salad. It’s cheese. In fact, my dirty secret is that I don’t actually like to make salads.
In case you haven’t figured this out yet, I’m a really picky eater. And as summer has gotten into full swing again, I’ve circled back around to the fact that cookouts are a challenge for me.
I bet you have a favorite vegetable. Mine is asparagus. Or maybe spinach. I like green things. Which is why I’m so happy that it’s Spring! I eat a lot of asparagus in the Spring. But I recently learned (or maybe re-learned?) that my husband hates asparagus. So I’m trying to convince him by sticking […]
I am on a breakfast kick. You already know I love eating my greens for breakfast, and I think you should too. I could seriously be happy eating breakfast all day. So, introducing: the best egg casserole in the whole world! True, there is no sausage in it. Actually, for me, that is exactly what makes […]
