  2. Beet Green Salad with Tahini-Lime Dressing


    The end of peach season came with great sadness. But then beets moseyed their way on in as fall started. Most people toss the tops of beets, but the greens are actually quite hearty and full of fiber. I like them raw, but you can sauté or braise them if you find them to be a little too tough. 

    The number of people this recipe serves depends on what you use in the salad. This one was pretty hearty and serves about four if eaten as a full meal.

    I’d post to this site a lot more often if it was short on words and featured just the recipe. There might be some changes happening soon…

  5. Pan-Seared Salmon with Parsley Yogurt Sauce

    I can have an astounding lack of motivation when it comes to making an elaborate meal after a long day of work on a weeknight, but I’ll never bust open a TV dinner. Why sacrifice quality when short on time or patience? Just make a simple, restaurant-quality dish that takes only minutes and won’t pump you full of sodium and preservatives.

  6. Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

    As one evolves, so does one’s palate, making things that were gross during childhood delicious in adulthood, and vice versa. However, my relationship with a well-made PB&J is a love affair that has stood the test of time. But while the classic sandwich is a great lunchbox item, there are far more creative things you can do with those two ingredients.

  7. Mango Couscous

    Mangoes were on sale for a zillion for ten bucks, and it wasn’t until I was sitting on the train with a crate full of mangoes that I realized that I needed to figure out what to do with them before they went bad. Luckily, Easter was on the horizon.

  8. Gluten-Free Fusilli with Chicken in Lemon Ricotta Sauce

    When the word ‘pasta’ comes up, one usually visualizes it dressed in something buttery, something creamy, or something tomatoey. And while a hearty sauce is usually the element that makes the calorie count of a pasta dish skyrocket, it actually is possible to have a creamy, rich sauce without compromising the health factor.

  9. Pappardelle with Pancetta in Butternut Squash Sauce

    When you’re living with a guy who’s never had beef or pork, it’s easy to forget that real bacon isn’t made of turkey. Just kidding. Once you’ve had real bacon, you know that nothing REALLY compares to the taste. It’s just a different kind of love. So when I had a couple of friends over for dinner recently, I decided to oink it up a bit and put some pork on our forks.

  10. Asian Slaw with Peanut Dressing


    The addition of a Vitamix into our home (best Christmas present ever - thanks BF!!) has led to a major influx of smoothies and sauces into our diets. I’ve since become obsessed with making homemade peanut butter, but now that I have multiple jars of the stuff, I had to start getting creative with ways to us it. And in comes the slaw.
