Vegetable Tetrazzini Recipe

Vegetable Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini is one of those deliciously retro casseroles that has stood the test of time. We might not be making Wieneroni or Ham and Bananas Hollandaise anymore, but everyone’s mom still makes Chicken Tetrazzini. It’s a classic! A classic that is not horrifying! In case you haven’t had Chicken Tetrazzini before, it’s a pasta-based…

One-Pot Pasta Primavera

One-Pot Pasta Primavera

I’m totally a sucker for one-pot meals. I mean, fewer dishes? Less fuss and muss (whatever “muss” is)? I’m in. So when I saw one-pot pasta floating around Pinterest awhile back, I was intrigued. I made Martha Stewart’s version pretty much immediately, and I loved it. And, because I’m a food blogger and this is…

Pumpkin Loaf

What I Ate This Week | Pumpkin Bread and Apple Nachos! Because it’s fall.

Last year I bought a big bag of teff flour because I wanted to make injera. (If you haven’t been lucky enough to try it before, it’s an Ethiopian flat bread and it’s delicious!) The injera was a disaster, and the bag of teff flour sat and sat and sat. I mean, what can you…

Super Duper Raw Power Salad

What I Ate This Week | Raw Salad, Raw Brownies and Cooked Cabbage Rolls

One of the things I got out of my failed juice cleanse experiment was the push I needed to add more raw foods to my diet. I have no desire to eat 100% raw, but when it comes to vegetables, I definitely prefer cooked, which means that my eating habits are not as well-rounded as…

Shiitake Panini with Roasted Asparagus Pesto Recipe

Recipe | Shiitake Panini with Roasted Asparagus Pesto

When I make asparagus, nine times out of ten, I roast it. Steamed asparagus is good and sautéed asparagus is better, but neither compare to roasted asparagus. Just like with cauliflower, roasting mellows the flavor of asparagus. It gets caramelized and tender and just perfect in every way. As soon as I saw spring asparagus…

Asparagus Ravioli with Pan-Seared Mushrooms Recipe

Recipe | Asparagus Ravioli with Pan-Seared Cremini Mushrooms

When I first started blogging, I was a little bit shy when it came to telling people about it. Now that my blog (and everything related to it) is my job, I’m a little more bold and I feel okay telling people that I’m a food blogger when they ask what I do. Usually people…

Strawberry Oat Scones

What I Ate This Week | Look, I made scones!

And I’m pretty proud of myself too. I’ve never made scones before, so I was half excited, half prepared for disaster. But it wasn’t a disaster! Blueberry Strawberry Oat Scones // See? It looks delicious, right? And these scones are vegan too! My husband ate three of them in about 10 minutes, which probably isn’t…

Lemony Asparagus Risotto

Recipe | Lemony Asparagus Risotto

I really don’t understand how it’s already mid-April. How did this happen?! Over the weekend, I came to the realization that summer is right around the corner and I haven’t fully taken advantage of spring vegetable season. I’ve made Brussels sprouts once this spring. Once! And I’ve made a whopping two asparagus recipes. So I…

Oven Roasted Tofu and Bok Choy

What I Ate This Week + Some Big News!

You may have noticed that I gave my blog a wee facelift over the weekend. I wanted to update my logo with something that better reflected the content of my blog and Jenna from Threee Design Studio did a fantastic job turning my vague ideas into something concrete. If you’re looking for clean, modern logo…

Thai Red Curry on Plate

Recipe | Thai Red Curry with Asparagus and Tofu

I love Thai food, but it’s very rare that I cook a Thai recipe and have it turn out right. Even when it’s good, it’s just slightly off. It always tastes like a pale imitation of real Thai food. It’s like when you go to a Chinese buffet and you get a slice of pizza…

Pesto Pizza

Recipe | Pesto Pizza with Roasted Red Peppers, Cremini Mushrooms & Asparagus

It’s no secret: I’m excited about spring. Super excited! While the weather and sunshine and longer days are nice, it’s the gardening that I’m really psyched about. Last summer was our first as homeowners and I was finally able to grow a variety of herbs to cook with mere steps from my kitchen. Oh yes,…

Cupcakes and asparagus! Although, full disclosure, I didn’t eat the cupcakes this week–they’re from a guest post I wrote for Texas Type A Mom that she posted a few days ago. But anyway, here’s what I ate this week! (And the cupcakes.) Roasted Asparagus with Capers & Lemon Juice // This is one of my…

Caramelized Onion Hummus

What I Ate This Week | Hummus Failure

As I type this, our furnace is out and my fingers are like icicles and I’m about 5 minutes away from turning on the oven and sticking my hands inside. I don’t understand how 60 degrees can feel so warm and pleasant outside, but inside, it feels absolutely frigid. Shiver. So let’s get down to…

Farro Risotto with Wild Mushrooms and Asparagus

Recipe | Farro Risotto with Wild Mushrooms and Asparagus

Even though I love risotto, I don’t cook it very often. It’s not that I find it complicated or that it doesn’t turn out well when I make it, it’s just that I’m lazy and easily distracted. Standing over a Dutch oven full of rice and broth for 40 minutes seems like some kind of…
