African Peanut Soup Recipe

African Peanut Soup

You know how sometimes you have really crisp, distinct memories of nothing in particular? I barely remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, but for some reason, I have a very clear memory of making peanut soup in our old apartment back in Wisconsin. I was frozen to the bone after getting home from work…

Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion BBQ Naan Pizzas

What I Ate This Week | BBQ Sweet Potato Naan Pizzas Are Everything Delicious

I think I use naan as a pizza crust more than I actually use it as naan. You know how when you’re 10 and you discover English muffin pizzas and then everyday after school, you’re making English muffin pizzas because they are the easiest, best snack? Naan pizzas are the adult equivalent of that. Sweet…

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos Recipe

Recipe | Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos

For better or worse (often for worse), I am an idea person. Not really in an inspiring, visionary type of way. More in a “Hey, I have an idea! I’m going to glue Japanese candy wrappers to a piece of cardboard and frame it!” kind of way. I’m less Steve Jobs, more lady on Hoarders…

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. The cookbook food was delicious, of course! But sometimes it’s nice to be able to say, “I’m not hungry for a big dinner tonight. Let’s…

Frozen Peanut Butter Pretzel Pies

What I Ate This Week | Make These Now: Frozen Pretzel Peanut Butter Pies

Whoa, it’s Friday–how did that happen? And where did the first week of August go? I am resolving to cram as much summer (and corn, obviously) as I can into the next month. I’m going to the beach, I’m buying a Slip-N-Slide, I’m going to go on a picnic, and I’m going to wave down…

What I Ate This Week + A Cookbook Update

People keep asking me about my cookbook and I guess I haven’t really talked about it much after I announced it in April. (April! Has it really been that long?) Right now I’m in the thick of recipe development–I’m trying to develop 10 recipes for the book each week, in addition to the usual development…

What I Ate This Week | Samosa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes & A Whole Mess of Strawberries

I’m on my way to Nashville today for a 3-day weekend, with a stop in Asheville, NC on the way back. Nashville is one of those cities that I’ve driven through many times, but haven’t actually visited. Recommendations for things to do (and places to eat) are definitely welcome because I’m probably going to be…

Sweet Potato & Kale Gratin

Recipe | Sweet Potato & Kale Gratin

I feel like I’ve written about all my failed Thanksgiving sweet potato attempts several times already (or maybe it just feels that way?) and I really don’t want to bore you with yet another story about those sweet potato failures, but I’m going to do it anyway. Because without those failures this Sweet Potato &…

What I Ate This Week + My New Favorite Kitchen Tool

The last time I was at Fresh Market, I spotted a pomegranate deseeder sitting next to a box of pomegranates in the produce section. I didn’t understand how it was supposed to work, but I figured that if it didn’t work, they wouldn’t be selling it, right? (Which reminds me, I need to go buy…

Wow, it’s November! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was complaining about summer ending. And now we’re smack-dab in the middle of fall. Fall! When everything is pumpkin flavored! Fall!

Sweet Potato French Toast Cups

Recipe | Sweet Potato French Toast Cups with Vanilla Cardamom Creme Anglaise

A typical weekend breakfast in our household involves microwaved muffins or string cheese. We’re always busy on the weekends and it seems like from Saturday morning to dinnertime on Sunday, we’re running errands or working in the yard. Taking the time for a sit-down breakfast seems like a small luxury. And when we do have…

Garlic Rosemary Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Recipe | Garlic Rosemary Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Sometimes recipes come together right away and it’s a wonderful, wonderful thing. And other times, it takes several tries to get it right. This was one of those “several tries” recipes. Remember a few months ago, I made sweet potato stacks? The potato I used for that recipe was a behemoth and a lot of…

Kale and Sweet Potato Quesadilla

Recipe | Kale & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

There are two things you should know about this recipe: 1. The name is a lie. There’s no queso in these quesadillas. But calling them “dillas” makes them sound like something cutesy off of a children’s menu, doesn’t it? 2. Yes, if it sounds familiar, it’s because I made these with leftovers from my Sweet…
