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…

If there exists a burrito that makes me want to hand out high-fives like Halloween candy, it’s this burrito right here. And that’s saying a lot considering I am in no way, shape or form, a high-fiver. Roasted portabella mushrooms? Shazam! Roasted chickpeas? INCREDIBLE! Cauliflower Rice? Bangarang! Chimichurri sauce?

Between the book and the blog, I’ve been dealing with a lot of writer’s block lately and the internet is the best remedy for that. While writing this post, I bought a cat cave on Etsy, I browsed Houzz and remodeled my kitchen in my head (where I have an unlimited budget!), and I spent…

And with Christmas right around…

Cremini and Chard Stuffed Shells Recipe

Recipe | Cremini and Chard Stuffed Shells

It’s always good to try to improve and be a better person and whatnot, but I think when you reach your 30s, you start to give up on that a little bit and accept that in some areas, you’re just always going to fall short. And that’s okay! Sometimes giving up is liberating. Like on…

Peach and Kale Salad with Maple Miso Vinaigrette

What I Ate This Week | Back to Normal!

Back to normal! I can barely contain my excitement! I’m finished with the recipe part of my cookbook, which means we don’t have to eat cookbook food all the time.

Were you trying to find something on my blog on Saturday and some strange, completely different site was on here instead? Yeah, that happened! I had a major (major) technical hiccup over the weekend.

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…

Seitan Cacciatore Recipe

Recipe | Seitan Cacciatore (and a little bit about seitan)

When I told my husband I was going to do a post about seitan, we had the following conversation: “Well, if you do a post about seitan, the title should be ‘Hail Seitan!’–get it? Hail Seitan?” “I think that joke has been made before…” Husband is completely dejected. “Aw, I thought that was clever.” “Nope,…
