    I cook a lot of simple meals. The type of meals California cooks occasionally get mocked for. You know the equation - a great ingredient sautéed with local olive oil and seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. Repeat. For example, this time of year, (as we've discussed) I cook artichokes once or twice a week, and I put all my focus and attention into picking out the best artichokes and then preparing them beautifully. I rarely use more than a bit of oil in the pan (after blanching), salt and pepper, and a bit of lemon zest to finish. I like the artichoke flavor direct and unobstructed, their…

    A Year of Slow Cooking

    I've been trying to cook from the archives a bit lately. There are so many recipes that I'll cook on repeat for months, and then neglect when a new favorite makes an appearance. There are many, many recipes in my life, and to those that get sidelined on occasion, rest assured, I still love you. I dusted off this lazy day peanut noodle salad for lunch yesterday. It's a perfect, colorful bowl of peanut-slathered soba noodles punctuated with spring onions, tofu, more peanuts, and asparagus. A total crowd-pleaser, and makes a great lunch in a jar if you need a new option for work or travel. When…
  • A Few Words on How to Cook Artichokes

    Heidi Swanson
    18 May 2015 | 10:30 pm
    If you're going to invest the time into cooking artichokes, you want them to be fantastic. In the spring I tend to cook artichokes once or twice a week, and although the process takes time and attention, I can't help myself. When they're good, there are few things I'd rather be eating. That said, I think a lot of people are intimidated by the process, or they think it's not worth the effort. My friends confirm this. The topic has come up a few times lately, and the conversations are typically punctuated by a confession that they never cook artichokes at home. So I thought I'd do a quick…

    There is quite a lot going on here. I'm putting the finishing touches on this little bear of a project. The photos are shot, the cover is set, and the files are locked down. It's the stretch of time between creating the content of a book, and when it goes to the printer. When things get a bit quiet. You're past the point of being able to tweak or change things, and you're waiting for your turn on press. Having a bit of a lull has been nice. I've been photographing beautiful California-made ceramics for a Spring update here, and getting all Marie Kondo on the house. Also, I've been cooking as…

    This is the time of year that I switch from making soup several times a week to making hearty full-meal salads with whole grains, potatoes, pasta and noodles, or sweet potatoes, with beans or tofu or other vegan protein and lots of vegetables (and sometimes fruit-- fresh or dried-- and nuts).  This ensures that we have something ready-made, nutritious and tasty in the refrigerator at all times for quick meals or snacks.These recipes are two that we have enjoyed recently-- one an old favorite, and one new, made up to utilize what I had in the freezer and fridge.NOTE: About Szechuan chili…

Use about 3 tablespoons per average egg, or 1/4 cup for a large egg (you don't have to whip it for this use-- just use in its liquid form).  This use for aquafaba as an egg replacer in baking was first posted by author/blogger, vegan cook extraordinaire…

    We have a bulk food store in our nearest town now, and they carry an interesting array of whole grains.  One that caught my eye was "Purple Prairie Barley", so I bought a small amount. But I never got around to using it until a few days ago. I knew already that barley is a grain very low on the glycemic index, providing slow-acting, longer-lasting energy, and that it's a good source of soluble (viscous) fiber, too.  Purple barley has an added bonus in that it is a variety sometimes called “naked barley,” or hull-less barley, which doesn't need pearling, so it still has the…

    Growing up in California, home of the “Artichoke Capital of the World“, I have developed a deep and abiding love for that noble thistle. In fact, it’s a personal secret mission of mine to teach anyone and everyone who’s remotely interested how to cook and eat artichokes. But I have to tell you, as much as we Californians love our ‘chokes, we have nothing on the Italians. Hit any farmers market in Italy in spring and you’ll find bushels of “carciofi” for sale, at a price of 10 for 1 euro! For comparison, our globe artichokes usually run $3 each…

You’ll find juice stands selling a variety of agua fresca, and street vendors peddling fruit on sticks and zesty fruit salads. Where our fruit salads tend to be rather predictable, a typical Mexican fruit cocktail has elements of chili and salt, and perhaps some cilantro and onion as well. The combination is interesting in the best possible way, and terrific served alongside Mexican food or on its own for a snack.

You might say I have no shame at all. I might say that I cleverly rail against the narrow confines of that which we know as breakfast.

    Please welcome guest contributor Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen, author of The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook: 101 Asian Recipes Simple Enough for Tonight’s Dinner, who shows us how to make this Chinese-American classic, Broccoli Beef. ~Elise After moving out of the dorms in college, I found an apartment to share with 3 others. My job was to cook, and as long as what I put out on the dinner table was better than instant ramen, I didn’t have to clean the kitchen or vacuum. A mighty fine trade of labor, if you ask me! But then pretty soon, friends of roommates discovered my cooking talent…

  • Deep-Fried Creamy Chicken Gravy – Almost Chicken Croquettes

    28 May 2015 | 8:34 pm
    There are two kinds of chicken croquettes. They all have a crispy, deep-fried exterior, but some are firm, meaty, and nugget-like, while others are much softer and creamier. It was that second kind I was attempting here, and I got so close. To make a long shorty short, I used too much butter, and milk, and while they did stay together enough to form the signature, golden-brown crust, the inside was positively sauce-like. I had no intention of turning this classic into some kind of gimmicky attempt at a viral video, but as I ate them, I couldn’t help but think of how much they tasted like…
  • Braised Lamb with Radishes and Mint (and Anchovies, but Don’t Tell Anyone)

    27 May 2015 | 10:39 pm
    I had a fantastic appetizer recently featuring lamb belly, radishes, anchovies, and mint, which inspired today’s post. It sounded amazing, but I’d only glanced at the description, so when it came, I was more than a little surprised to see the radishes were fully cooked. This was a new one for me, and I absolutely loved it. Like most root vegetables, radishes don’t have a ton of flavor, but I found them slightly sweet, earthy (duh), and aromatic. Plus, they seemed to have effectively absorbed all the other flavors in the dish. One thing led to another, and I adapted the approach to…
  • Sea Bass a la Michele – Just the Way She Likes It

    26 May 2015 | 5:16 pm
    Whenever I can’t decide on what to do with a piece of fish, I usually opt for this easy and crowd-pleasing technique, which involves roasting seafood after it’s been slathered in a highly seasoned vinaigrette. And by crowd, I mean wife. The acidic bath seems to do something to the sea bass as it roasts, and not only do you get a very flavorful exterior, but the inside it seems to stay moister and more succulent, than if you just used a spice rub. In fact, Michele loves this roasting method so much, that I decided to name it after her. Also, I couldn’t think of a name, and if I called it…

  • Classic Strawberry Shortcake – Thanks, Grandpa!

    20 May 2015 | 5:57 pm
    I was visiting my mom last summer, and overheard her and my aunt talking about making strawberry shortcake using “dad’s” recipe. They were obviously talking about my grandfather, which was surprising, since I had no idea he baked. I remember he did a lot of cooking growing up, but it was things like frittata, meat sauce, or polenta. I never once saw him bake anything sweet. Nevertheless, he apparently gets credit for inventing our official family recipe for strawberry shortcake, which I’ve adapted here.What he had done was taken the strawberry shortcake recipe off the box of a…

    Oak Dining Table and Chairs SetsOak dining table and chairs sets remind me of holiday dinners at grandma's house. Her old oak table was one of the round ones. That is, it was until the two extra leafs were put in, then it became a large oval. Hers was the old pedestal type with bear claw feet; it must have been a hundred years old when I was knee high to a jackrabbit. For holiday dinners, there were a bunch of adults sitting around that old table, leaving only a couple of empty spaces for the oldest of the grandchildren. It was a big day when you became one of the older ones, could sit…

    Recently, our local grocery store had a huge sale on ground chuck and ground round. I purchased about 15 pounds, then had to decide what to do with it. One reason I bought it was that I wanted to make some homemade chili, but it was too much ground meat, even for chili. My solution? I cooked it all, then put it up in the freezer in 2 cup portions. The 2 cup portions were just about what I would put in a hamburger casserole or stovetop hamburger pasta meal. Because this advance bulk cooking was done, in the future, when I want to make my hamburger stroganoff or a mac and cheese hamburger dish,…

    If you're looking for something new to make on the grill, you're going to love this!  All the lemony, garlicky flavors I love in a scampi, but lighter because there's no butter and just a touch of olive oil. After I grill them, I squeeze more lemon over them and top them with a little fresh grated parmesan – SO good!I put lemon slices in between the shrimp for presentation but it's totally optional. If you plan on doing this, it's best to double up on the skewers so the lemon and shrimp doesn't rotate around the stick when you're grilling. I actually forgot to…

    I LOVE the salty-sweet combination of watermelon, mozzarella, arugula and balsamic – a delicious twist on the classic Caprese which is usually made with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. Cutting the watermelon with a star-shaped cookie cutter makes these perfect for Memorial day or July 4th.I'm actually not a huge fan of tomatoes until late August when they are falling off my tomato plants, so watermelon is a great alternative. And these are so easy to make, no cooking required. The hardest part is cutting out the shapes (which is NOT hard at all, Madison loves helping me with this). You…

    28 May 2015 | 1:30 am
    Bright, tangy potato salad inspired by the flavors of nicoise salad and tossed with a mustard vinaigrette. Make a big batch on Sunday for a ready-to-go side dish all week! Lately, I’ve been all about taking some time on Sunday nights to get a head start on meals of the week ahead. I’m not talking about anything crazy – little things like cooking a few extra pieces of chicken to use on salad or in pasta or cooking a big pot of rice or whole grains can make a huge difference on a busy weeknight. I’m also finding that it helps a ton to make a simple potato, pasta, or grain…
  • Hoisin Glazed Chicken Kebabs

    26 May 2015 | 1:30 am
    These easy chicken skewers are a sure-fire crowd pleaser. If you marinate the chicken ahead of time, they’re ready in just 10 minutes! Serve them with cilantro rice or sesame carrot salad for a quick meal. We had a great food weekend this past weekend. From Friday night’s risotto (a culinary school assignment) to blackened mahi sandwiches at a lakeside restaurant (what is it about being on the water that makes everything taste better?) to new recipes for carrot and quinoa salads, we had one great meal after another. One of the highlights of the weekend were these Hoisin-glazed…
  • Spicy Chipotle Hummus Pasta

    Lauren Keating
    21 May 2015 | 1:30 am
    You won’t believe how quickly this spicy chipotle hummus pasta comes together! Saute the chicken and vegetables while the pasta cooks and you’ll have dinner on the table in about a half an hour. Have you ever cooked with hummus? We eat it all the time, but almost exclusively as a snack – set me up next to a pool with a tub of hummus and some pretzels and I’m good for hours. From time to time I’ll also also use it on a sandwich or in my favorite no-mayo potato salad, but other than that I haven’t really branched out in terms of using it as an ingredient in…
  • Blueberry Crisp with Lemongrass + Ginger

    Lauren Keating
    17 May 2015 | 6:56 pm
    Individually-sized blueberry crisps are an easy dessert that’s perfect for late Spring. This recipe gets a Southeast Asian flair from lemongrass and ginger. Using coconut oil instead of butter in the crisp topping means this dessert is also dairy free and vegan! This blueberry crisp with lemongrass and ginger is one of the best things that has come out of my kitchen recently. It’s sweet (but not too sweet), a little bit spicy, and loaded with a double portion of juicy blueberries. Since crisps can be messy to serve, I baked this recipe in individual portions. Top them off with…
  • Farmhouse Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

    Lauren Keating
    14 May 2015 | 1:30 am
    This gorgeous farmhouse salad highlights the best produce of the season: asparagus, peas, and radishes. Grilled chicken and chickpeas add plenty of filling protein and soy nuts add gluten-free crunch. Topped off with a bright citrus vinaigrette, this salad is the perfect way to celebrate Spring! We had the most ridiculously beautiful stretch of 90-degree weather over the weekend. I loved every second of it! We spend tons of time outside, had a date night at our favorite hot dog joint, and finally bought a new set of patio furniture. (Amazon is the best! We found a great set that was totally…

  • Tomato Pancakes with Herbs and Goat Yogurt

    Pots and Frills
    24 May 2015 | 4:23 pm
    I was raised in the culinary tradition where pancakes were always served sweet. In my quest to get to know other cuisines I have discovered that very often they are savory and can be made almost from any vegetable. My latest discoveries were pancakes made from corn and today's recipe--tomato pancakes. In a book about Greek cuisine I found out that fresh tomato pancakes are served in Santorini. I could only imagine how wonderful they can taste made from sweet ripe tomatoes and served on a hot evening with a glass of wine. The original Greek recipe is very simple and plain, easy to make. It…
  • Jerusalem Artichokes Soup

    Pots and Frills
    18 May 2015 | 5:20 pm
    Just before the season for Jerusalem artichokes (aka Sunchokes) ends, here is a recipe for a soup made from those artichokes. There is probably no simpler, practically, two-ingredient, and at the same time more intriguing soup. Because it is so easy I served it many times to my friends and each time I was asked for the recipe. The recipe is similar to some Italian recipes for the chestnut soup, where chestnuts are cooked with cream or milk, and turned into a purée. And that is what this sunchokes soups is too. Artichokes are cooked in milk, puréed, decorated, and the soup is ready. The…
  • Steak and Mint Thai Salad

    Pots and Frills
    7 May 2015 | 5:43 pm
    During the grilling season which has just started, I often have some day-after steak leftovers. They are perfectly fine but often not plenty enough for the whole dinner. Just recently, I got an idea on how to use them. They can be turned into a wonderful salad which can be served on the next day for lunch. This is the salad that my Thai friend shared with me one of those days when she was teaching me Thai cuisine. At that time we grilled steaks for that purpose, which of course would taste even better but those leftovers can be great too. Spring is a season when herbs start to pop up in the…
  • Dandelion Salad with Caramelized Onion

    Pots and Frills
    1 May 2015 | 7:08 pm
    Dandelions were one of the most annoying weeds that grew in my backyard in Poland. As a child I enjoyed playing with them when they were blooming, but did not know then that they could be eaten. Later, while living in Geneva and shopping in French food markets, I often saw bunches of dandelions especially in early spring displayed in the fresh vegetables section. French recipes for dandelions were all kind of salads in which dandelion was served raw. Although I love all greens, dandelion seemed too hard and too bitter to enjoy it raw. I knew however that dandelion was extremely nutritious,…
  • Lemon Rice--Easy Dish from Italy

    Pots and Frills
    25 Apr 2015 | 3:29 pm
    A couple of months ago in my local public library I bought for one dollar a second-hand book about Italian cuisine. It was published in 1968. I got it, out of curiosity, hoping for an original recipe. I liked this book very much. It gives a overview of the Italian cuisine by regions. The recipes are very traditional and typical of the areas they come from. I also love the old pictures of people, places, and dishes that bring back the atmosphere of Italy in the 1960s. Browsing through the book I found a recipe for lemon rice that looked interesting and I made it already on the following day.

  • Throw a Backyard Memorial Day Bash with these 12 Simple Recipes (and tips!)

    Brandon Matzek
    19 May 2015 | 4:28 pm
    Memorial Day is right around the corner, and it’s about that time to dust off your grill, gather friends and family, and throw a big, backyard bash.  I’ve put together a short list of simple recipes to help you get the party started.  But first, let’s talk party tips: Don’t make your whole menu from scratch.  Pair one or two (or three) of the recipes below with store-bought items to keep your event stress-free.  Just make sure everything is good-quality. If friends or family ask to bring something, tell them alcohol or ice.  I always forget to buy extra ice.
  • Hard-Boiled Egg Toast with Chermoula

    Brandon Matzek
    13 May 2015 | 12:09 pm
    Chermoula.  Sounds crazy, but it’s super tasty.  Let me explain. Chermoula is a North African sauce made with herbs, spices, lemon, garlic and olive oil, similar to a chimichurri or an Italian salsa verde.  It’s bright.  It’s fresh.  And it’s just packed with flavor.  For the past few years, North African condiments and spice blends have really been coming to the forefront in home kitchens (harissa, za’atar, preserved lemon), providing big hits of flavor with minimal effort.  I think Chermoula might take the spotlight next. Here, I’ve paired this…
  • Kimchi Grilled Cheese Recipe

    23 Apr 2015 | 12:54 pm
    Did you know April is National Grilled Cheese Month?  I recently realized this, so I dedicated several delicious weeks this month to perfecting one of my favorite grilled cheese sandwiches, the Kimchi Grilled Cheese. Several months ago, I discovered the amazing pairing of kimchi and cheddar one evening after work.  I often come home starving after a long day of work, and I like to eat a little snack before diving into dinner preparation.  These snacks consist of leftover bread with olive oil, bits of cheese , slices of cured meat and/or any of the various fermented or pickled things…
  • Roasted Poblano Queso Fundido

    Brandon Matzek
    22 Apr 2015 | 1:40 pm
    Queso Fundido, Spanish for “Melted Cheese”, is truly a thing of beauty. In it’s most basic form, Queso Fundido is just melted stringy cheese flavored with onion and garlic, and it’s often paired with roasted poblano peppers, spicy chorizo or sautéed mushrooms.  Here, I’ve taken the classic poblano pairing to the next level.  Three fat peppers get nice and charred under the broiler, and one gets chopped and mixed into the Queso Fundido while the other two transform into a vibrant green purée flavored with garlic and lime.  The contrast of the warm, rich…
  • Raw Carrot and Beet Salad with Feta, Mint and Harissa

    Brandon Matzek
    17 Apr 2015 | 7:07 am
    Good morning and Happy Friday! Today, I’m sharing a vibrant raw salad made with purple carrots and beets.  These nutrient-packed vegetables are grated, and then tossed with fresh herbs and a bold citrus-harissa vinaigrette.  After a brief rest in the fridge, the salad is finished with crumbles of salty feta cheese. Carrots and beets have been showing up regularly in my weekly Specialty Produce Farmers Market Box, so I’ve been trying out all sorts of cooking preparations to use them up.  This method of soaking grated veg in a spicy, acidic dressing is common in Moroccan cuisine.

  • Old Fashioned Banana Bread

    17 May 2015 | 7:20 pm
    There are lots of fancy modern banana breads out there. I'm sure they are all delicious but sometimes you just want something that reminds you of an afternoon spent in the kitchen with your Mom or Grandma or maybe those special care packages your family would send you when you went off to college. I'm guessing they weren't the fancy banana breads but just plain, basic stuff with the occasional chocolate chip thrown in. If you are yearning for a slice of THAT banana bread, try this. It's delicious, simple and will take you back to the excitement of opening those care packages or your Grandma's…

    This is a simple way to make use of overripe bananas and avocados. Feel free to add chocolate chips (1/2-1 cup) for even more chocolate flavor.

  • Broccoli Farro Salad

    2 Feb 2015 | 10:54 am
    This salad is easy to make. I make it for dinner and take lefts overs for lunch. I've only recently started adding farro to our shopping list but I love it! It makes the dish more substantial and adding whole grains is always a plus to any meal. There are many different kinds of farro and some are quicker to cook than others. I use Trader Joe's 10 minute farro but what ever you use just follow the package's directions. You can even make it ahead or make more than you will use so you have left overs!If you can't find farro, you can substitute something else - rice, barley, bulgar wheat, quinoa…

  • How to Keep Your Vegetable Garden Free of Root Maggots

    28 May 2015 | 11:46 am
    One of the best crops a first time gardener can grow is radishes. They come up fast, mature quickly and they’re darn tasty too. The first time I successfully grew them on my own I was amazed at how well they did. The pride I felt when I plucked a little scarlet orb from the warm dark earth was something akin to accomplishing a massive feat. I. Had. Done. It. I planted seeds and produced my own food. I hustled over to the hose to wash off the soil and have a snack, I turned my perfect radish over only to discover the massacre that was the other side. It was pockmarked, eaten and wormy, root…

  • French Ratatouille Recipe

    19 May 2015 | 3:18 pm
    If you’re like me and saw Disney/Pixar’s tale of the rat-turned-chef, you probably wondered about the dish that (spoiler alert!) humbles the crabby food critic at the end. Well, with zucchini, eggplant, Vidalia onions and beefsteak tomatoes arriving in my Full Circle delivery this week, I took it as a sign to attempt this classic French ratatouille. The recipe itself is fairly straightforward, although I would recommend using a mandoline if you’d like to skip all the fine slicing. Merde!

    Guest Blogger

    I always look forward to spring: warmer weather, beautiful blooms, gardening adventures, gorgeous green veggies and outdoor dining. Whether I’m going to a potluck, cooking for friends and family, or packing up the ol’ picnic basket, I am known to make a pasta salad (or two) to share. Pasta salads are my go-to because they are delicious and easy to assemble, they feature a bounty of seasonal produce, and they travel so darn well. I always make my pasta salads vegan and mayo-free so they hold up nicely and everyone can enjoy them. Going to the farmers’ market in spring reminds…

  • 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes!

    29 Mar 2015 | 4:46 pm
    These are the easiest protein pancakes that I have ever made. They do get a little crumbly because they are only 3 ingredients. But, the taste is still great, and they are very filling due to the high protein and fiber content. I will also give you options of other ingredients you can add to enhance the texture and flavor. 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes Makes 1 serving of 4 medium pancakes 1.5 scoops of a good quality grass-fed whey protein (sweetened with stevia is preferable) about 1/4 cup coconut flour about 2 Tbsp. brown rice flour Other ingredients you could add if you have on hand: 1/2…
  • Healthy Snack Idea: Roasted Chickpeas

    15 Mar 2015 | 7:17 am
    Sometimes get tired of the usual snacks: veggies, hummus, fresh fruits, bars, seeds, and nuts. And that is when I whip up some roasted chickpeas! I had been buying the pre-packacked Good Bean snacks from Target, Whole Foods, or HomeGoods. I love them, but one pack is about $4. You can make them on your own for about $2 (plus the cost of energy to cook them) and you can make double or triple the amount. I will say that The Good Beans snacks come out much dryer and crispier than the ones you make at home (unless you have a good quality dehydrator–you could get closer). Roasted Chickpeas…
  • Loaded Baked Cauliflower

    20 Jan 2015 | 12:03 pm
    Instead of a loaded baked potato, how about loaded baked mashed cauliflower? Sounds like a delicious idea to me. It is grain free, gluten free, soy free. It is not dairy free, although you could use a vegan cheese or skip the dairy altogether and use more garlic and olive oil. This isn’t the prettiest picture, but I was too excited to eat it that I couldn’t wait to fancy up my picture! Haha. I would recommend making either one large casserole of this in a 9×13 pan or using individual ramekin baking dishes to make everyone their own loaded faux-potato side dish. That makes for…

    Spring and summer are here, and I’ve moved more towards making lighter dishes, but over Memorial Day I had a craving for chili that I just had to satisfy. Enter: This slow cooker white bean chili. I was inspired by this recipe from CookingLight, and powered by my slow cooker (which I absolutely love for cooking dried beans and lentils) – we ended up with a delicious smoky chili packed with veggies, protein and deep spices. And can I just tell you – the leftovers the next day were even more rich and flavorful. The perfect balance of heat from the ancho chilis, the…

    At one of my favorite restaurants in SF, Nopa, they serve the most delicious baked white beans, topped with feta, herbs and breadcrumbs. It comes warm and sizzling in a skillet: crispy from the breadcrumbs, creamy from the beans, and with a little bit of bite from the feta. Since we’re far far away from Nopa now, I was determined to try to recreate their “Wood Baked Giant White Beans” at home. And when I came across this recipe from Vegetarian Times, I knew I had found the inspiration I was looking for! You can make it with dried beans but I chose to do it with canned to…

They are juicy, ripe, plump and there are so many varieties that are available: heirloom (my fav), roma, beefsteak, plum, cherry, grape – I could go on and on. One of our guilty pleasures is freshly made creamy tomato soup with grilled cheese. I like to healthify it by making my grilled cheese on sprouted wheat bread, using olive oil spray instead of butter, and using a secret ingredient instead of cream for the tomato soup. My lighter tomato soup was inspired by a recipe from CookingLight. I roast the tomatoes and…

  • Indian Spiced Cabbage with Peas (or “Cabbage Sabzi”)

    Anjali @ The Picky Eater
    19 Apr 2015 | 2:37 pm
    I have a confession: I’m not usually a huge fan of cooked cabbage. I love raw cabbage: in salads, coleslaw, etc. – it has a nice crunchy texture and mild flavor. But I’ve often found that cooked cabbage, if it’s not done well, can turn out mushy and tasteless. The only way that I like eating cooked cabbage is through this amazingly simple but incredibly flavorful Indian Spiced Cabbage recipe. Warm spices like cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric add depth to this recipe, cayenne pepper + a serrano chili give it a little kick, and I char the cabbage slightly to give it…

I have barely tracked since the beginning of the year. I have also only attended a handful of Weight Watchers meetings. I’m paying almost $45/month for something I’m just not using. I haven’t gained weight back but I also haven’t been losing any more. I  felt stuck the last few months, so I’ve decided it’s time to change things up. Hopefully these biceps will be a little more…
  • Week 22: Weigh Watchers Weigh In

    10 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    I got some bling this week… For every 25-lb increment you lose on Weight Watchers, you get one of these charms. Yes, I think it’s cheesy, but that didn’t make me any less excited to get it. It had been a while since I’d been to a meeting, so the 3.6 lbs I was down at this weekend was a cumulative loss over several weeks during January. But I finally got past the 25-lb mark, for a total loss of 26.6 lbs on Weight Watchers and 30 lbs total since the beginning of July. In the meeting, I was asked to share some differences losing 25 pounds has made in my life. I…
  • I Would Usually Quit Right Now

    4 Feb 2015 | 5:53 am
    In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I haven’t given up on Weight Watchers or gained back a ton of weight. This month has been a hectic blur between cruising, mourning a loss, flying to NYC for 18 hours to get a new cat (long story), new job stuff (more about that later!), etc. I’ve missed quite a few WW meetings so I haven’t done my usual weekly weigh in updates. My weight is still hovering around where I was during the holidays. I was gone for a week on a cruise at the beginning of January. I was up about 4 lbs after my cruise but I have since taken it off. I ate and…

  • Kung Pao Chicken

    18 May 2015 | 11:30 pm
    Kung Pao chicken is a spicy Chinese stir-fry made with bite-sized chicken, peanuts, vegetables and chili peppers. Although authentic Kung Pao derives its distinctive flavors from the use of Sichuan peppercorns, this classic Szechuan dish has been heavily adapted over the years to accommodate western tastes and availability of ingredients. In my version, I add zucchini, water chestnuts and bell peppers for a delicious medley of flavor and texture. Give it a try tonight, this popular Chinese takeout is easier to make at home than you think. Kung Pao Chicken Print Prep time: 15 mins Cook time:…
  • Egg in a Nest

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:05 am
    Like the avocado egg cups I posted here some months ago, this egg in a nest was inspired by a pin I discovered on Pinterest. When I followed the link, I was not suprised in the least to find that it was a Pioneer Woman’s recipe on Food Network. She is, afterall, the Queen of Yumminess. Guys, I can’t tell you how awesome these baked eggs are. Easy to make and requiring simple ingredients you probably already have on hand, you can make a huge batch in a jiffy to enjoy for breakfast or any time of the day you need a quick energy boost. Enjoy! Egg in a Nest 5.0 from 1 reviews Print…
  • Beef Fajitas

    26 Mar 2015 | 11:35 pm
    Fajitas are a popular Tex-Mex cuisine consisting of grilled meats and vegetables presented taco-style with corn or flour tortillas. Pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole and lime wedges are often served on the side as condiments. The fajita traces its humble beginnings as far back as the late 1930’s in the South Texas ranch lands. It was then a common practice to give tougher cuts of meat to Hispanic ranch workers as partial compensation for their services. These less desirable meats were often marinated in spices and tenderizers, grilled over wood flames and then rolled between warm…
  • Spinach Stuffed Chicken

    14 Mar 2015 | 2:17 am
    Here I am (finally) with a spankin’ fresh recipe, spinach-stuffed chicken. In this delightful dish, chicken breasts are filled with creamed spinach and rolled in seasoned Panko crumbs. The stuffed chicken parcels are then baked in the oven until moist and gooey in the inside and golden and crisp on the outside. They’re wonderful paired with a green salad for a light lunch or served over pasta for a satisfying dinner meal. Enjoy!

  • Italian Meatballs

    1 Feb 2015 | 12:20 pm
    Planning your Superbowl shindig? Guys, these Italian meatballs are a must! Plump, juicy, moist, flavorful, they’ll surely be the first to disappear on your buffet table. When I make these meatballs for parties, I usually serve them plain with different kinds of sauces on the side (sweet and sour sauce, marinara and BBQ sauce are favorites) so guests can help themselves to the flavor boosts they prefer. For super tender meatballs, I use equal parts of ground pork and ground beef to achieve a good ratio of fat. I grate my onions instead of chopping which gives the meatballs wonderful…

  • The Dark Knight Cake (Triple Chocolate Layer Cake)

    Stephanie Stiavetti
    27 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    I love cake, but I have a serious aversion to bad cake. What do I mean by bad cake? Too-sweet cake. Too-dry cake. Boring cake. Uninspired cake. Cake that tastes like it’s made from a cake mix, or cake that has a texture resembling a used sponge from a college cafeteria dish pit. Some people believe that any and all cake is good, just for the sheer fact that it’s cake. I’m not like that. For me, bad cake is the worst form of baking heresy. And there are a lot of bad cakes out there. I’m always tinkering with recipes, trying to make them more interesting. More……

    We all need help sometimes, no matter how good a cook we are. Things go wonky: Cake pans overflow, vegetables melt into a gray gelatinous puddle, chicken suddenly decides to go rubbery in the frying pan. Even those of us who wrangle food for eight hours a day run into our fair share of problems. Like, just today I put a few potatoes in the oven to bake. One &@$#!% potato refused to cook while all the other potatoes in the oven baked just fine. Either this potato had nine lives or there was something seriously wrong with it. I’m not sure who cursed this demon tuber, but it sat…

    I get so many questions from home cooks about learning how to prepare quick, healthy meals that taste delicious. Dinnertime stress is a real problem, even for me! But I learned how to eat awesomely every night, even while crazy busy. Do you have a burning question about how I did it? I really want to share everything I discovered. Here are a few examples of the questions I’ve gotten just this week: What can I do to improve my knife skills? How can I make my bland dinners taste better without expensive ingredients? Do I need a cabinet full of spices if I want to be a good home cook? How…

    21 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    There’s no business like beer business. Especially the canned beer business. Old Forge Brewery is a 4 year old brewery in Danville. A town that stands outside of time itself. Drive in restaurants. Train shops. Other oldeny Things. If it weren’t for the Sheetz, you’d think Danville literally froze in the quaintest time possible. Old Forge started as a brewery in just 2011 and distributes the most hip[ster] of all beers, canned beers. At the brewery, we learned that not only do cans keep light from getting in, but they also keep oxygen out better than bottle caps, so your…

We knew there was French food, that fellow Traveling Circus fiends liked the place, and that was it. We had fallen head over heads for the menu. It was a blind-date for sure. On arrival, we were underdressed, over enthusiastic,  and really bad loud. (So a bad blind date?) Truth be told, it was more fun than it should be. (Should French dining be… fun?) But no matter what, Le Manhattan is a blind date worth…
  • Creamy Shrimp and Grits

    5 Jan 2015 | 11:54 am
      There’s an ongoing joke that I’m a non-southern Southerner. My family is from the South and cooking wise, I tend to identify with those roots. While I’ve lived all over the U.S., I’ve only ever visited the South. So I guess I’m Southern-by-association. What’s the point of this? I love Southern cooking and Southern dishes. I grew up eating them and when I visit, diet be damned, I’m eating like a backwater native!  The last time the Whiskey Bacon crew went south we had shrimp and grits, with the grits being a spicy grit cake with bacon.

  • Peanut Butter Bacon Brownies

    Two reasons I should not be the one making brownies – I don’t bake well and I hate chocolate. Not despise or dislike. Hate. Without the presence of peanut butter, chocolate is a crime against humanity. Yeah, I said it…bring it on! So why did I attempt these brownies? Why the hell not! Peanut butter and bacon are sexiness personified and without that nasty chocolate fellow hanging around, they both get a chance to shine. All kidding aside, I also love peanut butter… probably in an unhealthy way. I saw and tried one of those ’3 ingredient magical…

Tender baby kale and spinach leaves form the base of this salad. Red quinoa adds a soft, nutty and colorful contrast with the greens and can be added when it’s cool or warm. (I’m a fan of warm!) Spindly carrots, strips of crinkly Napa cabbage, green onions and cashews are mixed throughout for a little crunch in every bite. Add chicken if you aren’t enjoying the meatless version.

    28 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    I looooooooooove pancake. Eating pancakes brings back so many happy memories of making breakfast with my mom. She was also notorious for making pancakes when we needed a quick dinner. I’ve had my fair share of pancakes, sugar free, carob chip pancakes and even low carb with flax. But my favorite is a pancake with a […] The post Sometimes You Just Need Pancakes for One appeared first on YUM eating.

    It’s garden season and that means plenty of herb growth. While many herbs can be grown year-round, there’s just something special about freshly grown herbs in the summer. So what do you do when you’ve grown your herbs and now you’re not getting through them fast enough?

    Now that we are at the ‘unofficial start of summer’, I wanted to share with you my ‘official’ summer side item: inlagd gurka – a Swedish cucumber salad. I actual make this throughout the winter and spring months – it reminds me of summer and the events held at the Swedish club that my family is apart of. During the midsommer smorgasborg, this is one of the many side dishes served. And sometimes multiple people bring it.

    I’ve always known that fika was special to Sweden. It was a time for those to come toegther and take a break over coffee (or tea) and enjoy a treat. And this can happen often. Sweden is the world’s top coffee consuming nation. FIKA: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break by Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall is an amazing little recipe book that covers everything you need to know about joining in fika at home. The authors start with the history of the Swedish coffee break, the importance of it, and what you need to create it at home – and that’s by making some sweet treats!

    17 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    I felt like I was walking around the renaissance festival while eating one of these giant turkey legs. My wife thought that the Robin Hood costume was too much… but I was taking from the crock pot and giving to the poor, hungry boys. I’ve never actually had the turkey leg at the festivals – I’ve had soup in a bread bowl – but generally we try to skip the food lines since it can be an expensive experience. I was surprised when I found all the tendons buried beneath the meat of the drumstick. After plucking a few out I decided to shred the meat and serve it that…
  • CROCK POT: Garlic Chicken Drumsticks

    6 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    A vampire would not survive on my cooking. I put garlic in almost everything. And it’s usually a lot. That’s one of the reasons that I love this simple and cheap crock pot dinner. You can substitute any type of chicken in this recipe, like the thigh, but I love using the drumstick. Whenever I go to the grocery store, I always swing by the meat department to see what’s on ‘manager special’. They usually have drumsticks on sale and I buy them every time – my freezer is packed with them! The last time I went, I bought a couple of packs of 12 for around $3…
  • CROCK POT: Brown Sugar Pork Loin

    26 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    How do you get the kids to eat their food? You listen to Mary Poppins – a spoonful (or cups full) of brown sugar helps the dinner go down! The dinner go down! The dinner go down! Sorry. When you’re a stay-at-home dad to a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old, your style of music, movies, and speech tends to alter a bit. My wife always laughs at me when I tell her my ‘tummy hurts’ or ask her if she needs to ‘go potty’ before we go somewhere – even when the kids are not around. Normally the kids have no problem eating their meats, but when I seasoned the pork…

You will not believe how completely perfect this frosting is, especially when paired with a chocolate cake. This frosting is so good, you can get away with using a boxed cake mix. Not a fan of raspberry? You can also use other flavors to make it your own, or just make it a plain vanilla frosting. Throw all of your other butter cream recipes away. You don’t need them. This one is that good. Can you tell…

    So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be honest…I still like my other scone recipe better most of the time. They’re very moist and cake-ier than most scones. But these are so wonderfully different. Orange and chocolate is the perfect pairing, and my other scone recipe is way too moist to make…

I’ve just been chickening out on making them. Jess is the bread baker in this family…usually. Yeast breads scare me a little! So, I kept putting off testing this recipe. But we have success!

Elevating a whole chicken off the base of the crockpot allows it to brown beautifully and cooking it at a lower temperature than in the oven means the meat is fall-off-the-bone-tender. I used Goya Sazon seasoning because that’s what I like, but you could easily swap it…

I took a quick bite as I was heading out the door. Stopped. And turned right back around to the kitchen to eat some more. It is sooo good! I upped the amount of parmesan cheese from other similar recipes so that it would form a nice crust, instead of runny liquid. Dill is always the perfect compliment to salmon and the ground mustard provides a little background heat. Roasted Salmon with Parmesan…
  • Jamaican Brown Stew Fish

    11 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    I have been craving fish something serious lately! I popped into my local seafood market and spotted two gorgeous red snappers. I knew immediately what I was going to make with them. This is a classic Jamaican dish. I have vivid memories of sitting at the dinner table carefully removing little bones from the fish and shoveling rice, fish and gravy into my mouth. Cooking the fish still on the bones helps thicken the sauce. Despite the name, this isn’t a soup. It’s fish and gravy. The lady at the market asked me if I wanted the heads still on the fish when she cleaned them. Yes! Best part…
  • Sticky Orange Ponzu Wings

    4 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    When the weather starts to warm up, I usually prefer a lighter, more casual dinner. One of my favorite things to do is put together a selection of appetizers and just let everyone wander into the kitchen to eat as the evening goes on. These wings are perfect for that. The marmalade makes the chicken skin sticky and also helps bind the other seasonings to the wings. The ponzu sauce adds depth of flavor and saltiness. These are excellent both hot and cold!

  • Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo

    27 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    I’ve been so overwhelmed and drained lately because we just moved. It makes it hard to put together lunches or dinners. The easiest solution has been to have a lot of cooked chicken ready to go. I know a lot of people just chuck some chicken breasts in the slow-cooker, but that is entirely too bland for me and I don’t really like stringy meat. This recipe is my salvation. I make a batch on Sundays and pair it with drained, canned green beans throughout the week for lunch. The chicken thighs stay nice and juicy and the vinegar and spices give it a nice tang. This would also work well on…

    In my opinion, fudge has to be the best treat to eat, after chocolate of course. This version of fudge, however, is quite a bit different from the traditional kind. The ingredients create something that’s oh so delicious and soft, melting in your mouth and the palm of your hand. This is a lot more delicate than a traditional fudge, and doesn’t set completely – which is why I called it a melt. Because of this, you get a rich, chewy and creamy candy thats super decadent, and just like soft toffee. It’s utterly irresistible. For me, this recipe is the ultimate…

    Coconuts are such an amazing ingredient. There aren’t many foods that work well in both in sweet and savoury dishes, as well as multiple cuisines! It also amazes me just how many different forms you can buy it in – oil/cream/water/sugar/milk and so on! In this recipe, I used coconut oil and coconut milk. Both of these ingredients create a delicious creaminess in the curry, which is perfect for balancing out the warmth of its spices. I made this a fairly mild curry with a slight kick, so that you could really enjoy the levels of flavours and tastes within it. I really wanted to…

    How much time do you allow for yourself? How often is it that you spend time alone, focusing purely on you? Solitude is something I value incredibly, and as I thought about it today, I wanted to shed light on its importance with you. Dedicating a period of time to detach myself from the world each day brings me clarity and peace of mind. However, in this world, separation can feel incredibly rare. Everyday we are surrounded by external things filling our minds, thoughts and ideals. Unknowingly, this affects our moods, our emotions and our actions.   Spending time alone allows you to…

    Blueberry muffins are definitely a confectionary classic. Being one of my favourite foods to eat, there’s nothing I enjoy more than biting into one warm when the blueberries are all plump, succulent and juicy. Mmm. This muffin is a special one, as it’s a recipe made with my new-found love: Tapioca flour. Strangely, this is an ingredient I only recently really discovered, even though having some in my cupboard for a while. I wasn’t particularly sure what to use it in at first, but then the other day I took the plunge and decided to make some of my classic pancakes with it.

    Recently, my lovely godmother rescued a beautiful pig named Gloria. Only weeks away from being sent to unnecessary slaughter, my godmother did everything she possibly could to save Gloria’s life. Rescuing this beautiful pig, she travelled hours to transport her to a new, happy home at Farm Animal Sanctuary, Evesham. Here, Gloria would be able to live the long, joyous life she deserved. However, Gloria’s story is an incredibly lucky one. Humans can be incredibly cruel to animals, and every year over 150 billion of them are sent for slaughter through various trades and practices.

All of the kids would huddle around the buffet table just waiting for the warm garlic bread to come out of the oven and placed in big baskets. I’m pretty sure my brother John’s plate had 6 pieces of bread and a minuscule amount of salad and spaghetti, but how could you possibly resist something that smells and tastes so delicious.

By adding sunflower butter (also known as sun butter) to this smoothie he gets a protein packed punch that provides a great start to his day or serves as a nutritious after school snack. You can certainly use a nut butter in this recipe such as almond, peanut, soy or cashew, but there’s something we love about using sunflower butter (which also…

There’s nothing I hate more than tossing into the composter or garbage food which could have been easily frozen and consumed weeks, if not months, later had only I frozen them before their expiration. Fortunately, over the years I have learned to become a model freezer. It means that anytime I’m feeling lazy or haven’t been to the grocery in a while I can simply…

While there is another sweet called by the same name in South India (read Kerala), it is an entirely different thing from the Halwa of the North India. The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word “Halwa” is Bollywood movies. Most Hindi movies from the 70s until the 90s has a mention of Halwa or, Motichur ke laddoo, when it comes to a scene where someone announces something good, happy or, auspicious. Though things have changed now and happy news in recent movies kicks off celebrations in the form of a few bottles of beer or,…

  • Radish Yogurt Raita

    For a North Indian, no dinner is complete without a raita. As a kid, the last part of our dinner would usually be curd mixed with rice and sugar. If we did not end it that way, we felt as if our dinner was incomplete. Even today you will find curd being served at the end of any dinner party, mostly in marriage parties in Bihar. We never bothered making raitas. Curd in the raw form was what we preferred. It was when I moved into Delhi that I got the first taste of raita and I learned that it was a part of the Punjabi culture there. Just as it was in Bihar, where raw curd and sugar was served…

This past month has been a relatively light one at work and I haven’t had a ton of side projects going on either. Turns out, my sleep ‘sweet spot’ without setting an alarm is nine hours.

    For Christmas, my mom gave us several really cool kitchen gadgets that I was so excited to use right away. The only problem was that the day before we opened the gifts, our house flooded and we didn’t actually have a kitchen anymore. That meant that all of our fun new gadgets were stored away for the next three months, which was a bummer. So, now that we’re back in our house and actually settled in, I’m finally getting to try everything out! One of the first things I wanted to try was a mini doughnut pan, so I made these tasty little cinnamon doughnuts. I dipped a couple of…

I’m excited to be linking up with the Show Us Your Books link-up this month, that Erin told me about!

I also enjoyed seeing how, over time, the…

  • Smoked Salmon and Lemon Risotto‏

    26 May 2015 | 11:00 pm
    Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I am biased when it comes to things that involve salmon. We do love our fish, especially our salmon and take it very, very seriously. When I am asked “what is typical West Coast cuisine?”, well I would undoubtedly say that it’s known for its seafood and healthy, fresh, local foods. Think simplicity, clear flavors with the possibility of infusing some Asian influence into it. And when it comes to fish, salmon is the ingredient that most readily comes to mind. Salmon is rarely just ‘salmon’. We have wild alderwood smoked salmon, jerky,…
  • Pecan Rhubarb Muffins

    26 May 2015 | 1:12 pm
    These delicious and healthy muffins are made with nutty wholegrain spelt flour, Greek yogurt, tangy rhubarb and crunchy pecans. They are perfect for breakfast or as on-the-go snack.  For these muffins, I used unrefined whole grain spelt flour. Spelt is an ancient grain related to wheat that has a fabulous nutty and complex flavor. Compared to traditional wheat flours, it offers a wider range of nutrients, has one of the highest dietary fiber contents of wheat varieties, and is easier on the digestive system due relatively low gluten content when compared to whole wheat flour and even…
  • Persimmon & Watercress Salad with Rhubarb-Ginger Dressing

    24 May 2015 | 10:00 am
    I love creative salads. This one is just that. Inspired by the wonderful assortment of fresh farm produce, abundance of spring herbs, and exotic fruit sold at the farmers market, this salad is a mix of sweet persimmons, peppery watercress, bitter and spicy radicchio, plus a little fresh mint and chives, all tossed together in a tangy, sweet and sour rhubarb dressing and topped with buttery yet crunchy, and delicious toasted cashew nuts. Watercress with the roots still attached In season right now, as with rhubarb, watercress can be found fresh in good greengrocers or at the farmers’…
  • Spring Couscous Salad with Asparagus and Artichokes

I eat them every day — not only is this insanely healthy but it also inspires me to come up with new and delicious salads ideas, which by the way, if you are looking for the perfect spring salad, then you are in luck. This delicious bowl of goodness is seriously tasty. It’s packed with bright green and crisp tender asparagus, tangy sliced marinated artichoke hearts, sweet cherry tomatoes and spring green onions, all tossed together with light, fluffy couscous, then infused in fresh basil and lemon flavors. This is the kind of…
  • Königin-Pasteten (Vol-au-vent) with a Creamy Veal and Mushroom Ragout

    22 May 2015 | 10:00 am
    As a main meal or finger food, it’s representative of a traditional German or French dish made for special occasions or to celebrate a festive time of year. Armed with this information, and a festive occasion (my birthday), that was my wish. Königin-Pasteten with a creamy veal and mushroom ragout. It was a Monday night and I was looking for a break from dining out. Since we suffer fabulously from that thing called city living in Europe, we live within the confines of small maze of Jungenstil walls with old world flare, but sadly no balcony to speak of. So my favorite Schwabe and I have…

    Once a month, I help out with the culinary demos as a volunteer with CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture). Renowned chefs and cookbook authors come to share a recipe — and samples — with the public, and as a volunteer, I work alongside them to prepare the recipe. A couple weeks ago Sascha Weiss, the executive chef at The Plant Cafe in San Francisco, prepared a delicious chickpea panisse with roasted asparagus, maitake mushrooms and pea-pistachio puree. The entire dish was flavorful, but the puree in particular inspired me to start making more purees and…
  • Roasted Cauliflower Steak with Quinoa

    Vegetarians rejoice because you can have steak too — it’s just a different kind of steak. I’ve often read cauliflower steak recipes and thought It sounds so simple, yet the presentation is of restaurant caliber. This rendition uses all parts of the cauliflower to make a cauliflower puree that’s simple yet elegant.

    While I love the flavors of pizza and pasta, I’m not always in the mood to eat that many white carbs or order an entire serving. Plus, Italians love their large pasta dishes and “single-serve” pizzas are often more appropriate for two. This recipe brings Italian flavors to a dish with whole grains and less cheese than your classic pizza or pasta. It’s easy to cook and makes great leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. Ingredients: > 1 tablespoon olive oil > 15-ounce tomato sauce > 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved > 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt > 1/2…
  • Hearts of Palm and Avocado Salad

    Courtney Buchanan
    24 Apr 2015 | 4:39 pm
    A couple weeks ago, I had a delicious meal at La Bodeguita del Medio in Palo Alto and was inspired by a simple yet flavorful salad. The Palmitos salad is composed of hearts of palm, frisee, avocado, red grapefruit, sugared walnuts and a lime vinaigrette. The combination of flavors was both refreshing and filling, so I decided to try to recreate the salad. It’s slightly different and combined with a recipe from Food & Wine — plus some of my personal touches. Not only is this salad delicious, it’s easy to throw together in the office, given that the ingredients are pre-cut.

    Portobello mushrooms aren’t a crowd pleaser by any means. In fact, many people can’t think about choosing that over steak (often the two choices at formal events). But for those of us who prefer portobellos over a piece of meat, it’s refreshing to find a recipe that truly plays to a portobello mushrooms strengths and brings out all the right flavors and textures. This recipe, which features several components that pair well together, is simple in execution, yet complex in flavor.

    Love pulled pork? This pulled pork recipe can be made in either a slow cooker, or a pressure cooker. Either cooking method will give you a flavorful roast you will find hard to resist.Pulled pork is so easy to prepare with a pressure cooker. I personally love my Instant Pot. I use it for rice, beans, roast, short ribs, I have even made macaroni and cheese in my instant pot. This is a great way to cook meat during the summer. By using a pressure cooker you won’t heat up your kitchen by cooking in your oven. It also costs less in electricity to use an electric cooker.For this recipe I…

This copycat Stouffers Macaroni Cheese recipe is made completely from scratch. I know a lot of people want to cut out preservatives and they still want to enjoy their favorite flavors. This recipe uses a couple of types of cheese, and has a wonderful cheese flavor. This casserole then gets baked in the oven and the top can get the wonderful browned bits on top. I know now this dish typically get’s microwaved when you buy the frozen…

This may be the one you like to dry. This recipe is made simply, chopped cabbage, chopped carrots, and a tangy slightly sweet sauce that is drizzled over these freshly chopped vegetables is hard to resist.I personally am a huge fan of Captain Ds.

    Restaurant Style Sweet and Sour sauce is very easy to make. I know that when you try making your own sweet and sour sauce you won’t buy another jar. It may seem like a mystery, you know, how to make sweet and sour sauce, but I promise it is very easy to do. You may even have the ingredients on hand if you want to make your own homemade sauce. One of the things I like most about recreating restaurant favorites is that you know exactly what you put in your own food. I know when you try this sauce you will be amazed at how much better it tastes than what you can buy in a jar.Unlike many…

    For anyone who has tried to find a decent vegan protein powder, I’m sure you know where this is going. They’re just not that great. I recall a time where I purchased and returned multiple powders because I just couldn’t stand the taste.  While I was breastfeeding, I tried to limit my dairy consumption after finding out that my baby wasn’t taking too well to heavy use of dairy products. And, since I’m often an extremest, I eliminated cow’s milk protein all together. So began the hunt, as I wanted to continue having an occasional protein shake. Beware of…

After all, a couple days of diarrhea is one thing, but going on a week with bad diarrhea is scary. All of a sudden, something that once was really not a big health scare in my mind became a BIG deal because it wasn’t getting better. Thank heavens, we are now back to regular, healthy, formed stools again! But due to this terrible flu, I’ll never look at diarrhea the same again. The post…

  • Lemon Creme Pie Bars with Gingersnap Crust

    Carrie Louise
    25 May 2015 | 5:49 pm
    Most often, you'll find that lemon flavored desserts are either lacking in the lemon flavor department, or they are seriously over sweetened. To be delicious, they must have a nice balance of sweetness to tartness. Traditional lemon bars have a strange texture to me; the consistency is a bit to much like a 'gel,' and the crust is too floury. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I love when desserts have a nice, clean slice, with no ragged edges. These Lemon Creme Pie Bars meet all the requirements for the perfect lemon dessert. Creamy, refreshing, lemony, and just the right amount of sweetness.
  • Two Bowl Chocolate Fudge Cake

    23 May 2015 | 7:27 pm
    This no-frills cake is made quickly, with no eggs and no butter, so it's actually vegan, and dairy free, if you're into that kind of thing. If you're not, don't worry, this cake is so dense and rich and chocolately, you won't miss a thing. You can make it in just one bowl, and there are no special steps involved. Frosting is optional, though I've never put anything on this cake, other than a dusting of powdered sugar. I call it the 'break-up cake' because similar to a pint of ice cream, you can just grab a fork and dig right in to this cake, straight from the pan, and eat all of your feelings…
  • Chocolate Peanut Brittle Cookies

    Carrie Louise
    12 May 2015 | 7:04 pm
    I'm always on the lookout for the perfect chocolate cookie. It's tough to make a good textured cookie when using melted chocolate in the batter. They often come out much to soft and cakey (think whoopie pie), or flat and crispy, or just not enough chocolate flavor. When I saw a photo of these cookies on The Sugar Hit, I was intrigued. If you're not already following her on Instagram, or getting her recipe emails, you're missing out! So after just a few small changes, and drastically reducing the size of each cookie, these lived up to my expectations. Crisp on the outside, thick, and almost…
  • Greek Yogurt and Blueberry Jam Pancakes

    Carrie Louise
    25 Apr 2015 | 3:19 pm
    I don't like strawberries, but I like strawberry jam. I don't like blueberries, but I like blueberry jam. In fact, other than bananas, pineapples and the occasional slice of watermelon, I don't really like fruit at all, but I eat it because I know it's healthy. So the typical recipe for blueberry pancakes, where you just dump fresh blueberries in the batter, doesn't appeal to me at all. So to get the flavor of the blueberries into these thick and fluffy pancakes, I use high quality blueberry jam. Not only does it turn the batter a fun blue color, but you get the fruity taste in every bite.
  • Mini Egg Brownie Tart

    Carrie Louise
    3 Apr 2015 | 6:34 pm
    Buying holiday candy is always a good idea, because since it's seasonal, and only available for a short time, you know it's fresh from the candy factory, and produced just for the occasion. I'd have to rank Reese's Reester Bunnies as my favorite Easter candy, but all things Cadbury come in tops, as well: Creme Eggs, all varieties, and of course, the sometimes harder to find, Mini Eggs! These uniquely crispy shells are filled with chocolate, and consumed by the dozens...for me, at least. Adding them to the inside, and top, of a fudge brownie, seemed like a logical next step. Use a store bought…

  • Wonton Nachos with Pulled Chicken and Mango Salsa

    26 May 2015 | 8:45 pm
    Wonton nachos are a fun way to use wonton wrappers to create a colorful and festive feast. The wonton chips are baked with minimal oil until crunchy and crispy. The mango salsa and pulled chicken create a decadent and exotic flavor at a very modest calorie count. After I created some super comforting braised pork shanks last week, I couldn’t wait to use the leftovers to create even more dishes. When cooking that recipe, I threw a few boneless, skinless chicken thighs into the pot of braising pork, to create some tender chicken at the same time. Today, I’m sharing this wonderful nacho dish…
  • Braised Pork Shank with Black Beans

    22 May 2015 | 12:09 am
    The braised pork shank is so tender that the meat falls from the bone at the slightest touch. The rich sauce is enhanced by the velvety black beans. This is an easy one-dish meal that requires very little active cooking time and ensures the best flavor. My fridge almost never runs out of braised meat. It is so easy to cook in large batches and freeze for later use. The recipe might look a bit long, but all you really need to do is to brown the meat, dump all the spices in, and let it cook for several hours. I have posted quite a few braised recipes on my blog, including braised spare ribs,…
  • Cranberry Coconut Flour Muffins

    20 May 2015 | 6:35 pm
    These cranberry coconut flour muffins have a scrumptious, creamy, and moist texture, with only 175 calories per muffin! Have you ever cooked with coconut flour? I started to experiment with it lately and soon fell in love with it! Coconut flour is light and soft in texture and has a great fruity and sweet aroma. Beyond its pleasant flavor, coconut flour is gluten-free and contains more fiber and protein than wheat flour. (You can read a bit more about coconut flour here.) It is a perfect ingredient to add both sweetness and nutrition to your daily meal, by replacing a portion of wheat…
  • Thai Brussels Sprouts Salad

    14 May 2015 | 6:01 pm
    The crispy Brussels sprouts are mixed with colorful veggies and plenty of herbs, then drizzled with the sweet sour Thai chili sauce. It is a wonderful side dish that is bursting with flavor, full of nutrition, and can be on the table in 30 minutes. My trip to Austin has been great so far. I overcame the jet lag easily, thanks to the mild weather and amazing food. It has been raining quite a bit, but that didn’t bother me at all. I spent a lot of time indoors to get settled into my new home, and spent the rest of the time enjoying books and cooking. The rain always stops in the…
  • Easy Kung Pao Chicken

    11 May 2015 | 4:01 am
    A quick and easy kung pao chicken that only requires 20 minutes to prepare. Use this method and you’ll always create moist and tender chicken with no fuss! Although I wrote about kung pao chicken a long time ago, I decided to create an easier version after I posted the all-purpose chili garlic sauce. Why create another kung pao chicken when there are millions already out there? Because I wanted to create the quickest way with the best kung pao flavor. Why this recipe? It only takes 20 minutes (15 minutes if you use already-roasted peanuts) to get the dish on the table, while the average…

  • Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

    Rachel K. Burke
    14 May 2015 | 8:23 pm
    I can’t believe I went my whole life without knowing how easy it is to make your own chocolate. And of course, after learning this, my first impulse was to make my childhood favorite candy – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Sorry Reese’s, but these homemade peanut butter cups are so much better! They’re vegan, gluten-free, completely clean, and of course, delicious! For some reason, the chocolate seems to lose a little sweetness after it freezes, so feel free to add as much sweetener as you’d like. I like to use both coconut palm sugar and either agave or pure maple syrup to make it a…
  • Quinoa Tabbouleh Dip (Gluten Free!)

    Rachel K. Burke
    11 May 2015 | 3:08 pm
    This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I don’t like parsley, so I sub chopped spinach instead. (Way tastier!) B) I use quinoa instead of bulgur. (Way healthier! Quinoa has so many great nutritional values: low glycemic, gluten-free, a complete protein, and packed with fiber.) C) Tabbouleh is commonly referred to as a salad, I like to add some crumpled goat cheese, make homemade gluten-free tortilla chips, and use it as a dip instead! (But of course, if you’re a vegan, feel free to use vegan cheese or omit it altogether.) D) I…
  • Veggie Egg Frittata Muffins

    Rachel K. Burke
    9 May 2015 | 4:28 pm
    One of the reasons many of us struggle with maintaining a clean diet is lack of time. Daily meal preparation can be extremely time consuming, which I think is why a lot of us end up purchasing store-bought food – because it’s faster and easier than slaving in the kitchen after a long day of work. These egg frittata muffins are the perfect solution if you’re looking for healthy, homemade breakfast on the go. They’re packed with vegetables and protein, easy to make, and you can make a large quantity and store them in fridge for an easy to-go breakfast to bring with you to work, or for a…
  • Strawberry Spinach Salad with Homemade Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

    Rachel K. Burke
    2 May 2015 | 6:03 pm
    While I do love a good strawberry spinach salad, the most exciting part of this recipe is learning how to make your own strawberry vinaigrette dressing. I never realized how easy it was! And this way, you don’t have to worry about any questionable ingredients in store bought dressings. I like to add sliced strawberries and apples to this salad, but feel free to add any of of your favorite fruits. Blueberries and raspberries are also a good touch. Ingredients: For dressing: – 3 tablespoons coconut oil – 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil - 2 tablespoons apple cider…

I have so many cocktail ideas (especially with all the new vodka flavors nowadays – whipped cream… cookie dough…) but this Blueberry Vodka Fizz recipe is one of my favorites. It’s simple, tasty, and a great low-calorie option since soda water is calorie-free. (And doesn’t this pretty photo make you want one??)

  • Zucchini Pancakes with Piri Piri Aoli (paleo & gluten free)

    28 May 2015 | 6:20 pm
      Zucchini Pancakes Back when we were dating, the hubby came back from a trip to London raving about Piri Piri sauce. Pronounced Pee-ree Pee-ree, it is actually the African bird’s eye pepper. It was used by Portuguese settlers who found it while exploring in Mozambique and fell in love with it as we have.  A few ethnic markets near us started carrying Piri Piri hot sauce from time to time and we would stock up whenever we saw it.  Once I tasted it, I realized what all the hullabaloo was about!  The flavor in that stuff is off the charts!  It is not your typical hot sauce.  Now…
  • Stuffed Bell Peppers (vegan, paleo, & gluten free)

    20 May 2015 | 5:36 pm
    I was doing a sort of cleanse a couple weeks ago and there were no carbs allowed for a week.  Yup, a whole week!  It was strictly protein and veggies.  Now I know this is normal for many, but not for me.  I don’t eat much bread or rice, but I NEED my fruit! We don’t eat meat in our house on Monday, and usually I make lentils or something involving rice or pasta.  I noticed that one of the meal suggestions for the week was stuffed peppers with ground beef.  I was a vegetarian years ago and with being gluten intolerant you get very used to removing certain ingredients from…
  • Chocolate Cake

    I have been making birthday cakes for everyone in the family for years.  Mostly because they feel guilty if I can’t eat it!  I really do enjoy it though.  It’s therapeutic in a way.  At first I would decorate the cakes with good old fashioned frosting, but then you see all of these gorgeous fondant cakes and my artwork didn’t seem so appealing anymore. When my younger daughter was about one year old I took a series of cake decorating classes.  I had all these bright eyed ideas about opening up a gluten free bakery and selling my pretty cakes and cupcakes.  A few events…
  • Mint & Cucumber Yogurt Dip

    7 May 2015 | 4:11 pm
    A blend of dried mint, cucumbers, fresh garlic, and yogurt makes this dip a great companion to anything from crackers to kabob.  I usually just dip my veggies in it.  So good! There is a popular Persian side dish that is very similar in flavor.  I’ve changed it up a bit by using lebni instead of yogurt.  Lebni is a very thick Arabic style yogurt.  Greek yogurt can be used as well, but lebni is even thicker and creamier than greek yogurt.  I know, it’s hard to believe that such a thing exists!  It’s delicious on it’s own and what doesn’t taste better with a…

Seriously though, I would dream of pasta!  I went without for a few years so I don’t crave it as often, but my kids ask for pasta at least once a week.  Pasta is just so versatile.  Add sauce or just do olive oil; only add veggies or add meat too.  It can be thrown together rather quickly, which is great…

Who can resist them? Even better, who can resist a chocolate chip cookie made with three types of chocolate and dried cherries? I’ll admit it. I can’t.  If I see them. I will eventually eat them. Maybe that’s why I generally only bake them during the holidays. You know what they say about having too much of a good thing?! (But don’t let my lack of self-control prevent you from making these…

But handling and cooking meat was something she did not like to do. I wasn’t worried since I knew there was always the internet and cable TV to teach her how to cook.  Growing up with so much technology and information at the touch of a few keystrokes is amazing. More amazing was the fact that she still asked for my recipes. Imagine my surprise when she shared one of her recipes with me! Mind you, I did tweak…
