Recipe | Leftover Cranberry Sauce Bread

Back in the day, when I was all anti-establishment and down with the man, I would have never found myself partaking in Black Friday madness. But this year, I’m counting down the days to Black Friday because we need a new couch. Couches are expensive! Sales on couches are good! Do you know what four…

Twice-Baked Butternut Squash

What I Ate This Week | Twice-Baked Butternut Squash & Other Thanksgiving-y Things

If I were making a big Thanksgiving dinner this year, I would make Twice-Baked Butternut Squash. But I think we’re probably going to get stuff from Whole Foods for dinner next Thursday. I am a bad food blogger! Bad! Our families are in Illinois so it’s just Chris and me, so while every year I…

Recipe | Brussels Sprout and Apple Tart with Walnut Pesto

Thanksgiving is next week. Did I just blow your mind? Fine, maybe not. Maybe you are a person who has things together, who plans everything in advance, and for that, I commend you. I used to be that person too. But then I turned into a person says “Have a good weekend!” on Tuesdays and…

Shallot and Shiitake Gravy

Recipe | Shallot and Shiitake Gravy

I had a pretty big freak-out over this post because I realized that I didn’t have a gravy boat right before I was ready to start photographing it. In my head, I had a gravy boat. But in reality? No gravy boat. I found an article on gravy boat alternatives from The Kitchn, which was…

50 Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving

50 More Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving

Last year I posted 40 vegetarian main dishes for Thanksgiving and people found it pretty useful. So I thought I’d do it again. Except this time, there are 50 recipes! Oh, and I threw in some bonus gravy recipes too because mashed potatoes should never be eaten without gravy. Now all of your vegetarian Thanksgiving…

Recipe | Kale and Delicata Squash Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette

Maybe I’m just noticing this because I’m a food blogger, but it seems like people are more obnoxious than ever about food. I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years now and I think the last time I was pushy about it was when I was 15. I don’t try to convert people; I don’t rant…

Recipe | Wild Rice with Roasted Grapes & Walnuts

Last weekend, Chris and I decided to get AppleTV. My plan was to get it, subscribe to Hulu, and then start watching old episodes of Rock of Love immediately. I was so excited that on the way to Best Buy, I sang the Rock of Love theme song, and since I only know approximately 3…

Rosemary Roasted Carrots Recipe

Recipes by me, photos by Rikki Snyder. Even though I have a food blog, I have to confess that I get overwhelmed when cooking a few things at once. Does that happen to you too, or am I just especially weak and easily confused? It seems like the more I have going on in the…

Wild Mushroom Gravy

Recipe | Wild Mushroom Gravy

Recipe by me, photos by Rikki Snyder Before I stopped eating meat, turkey was always an afterthought for me on Thanksgiving. It was the gravy and mashed potatoes, the cranberries, the green bean casserole–those were what I really loved to pile on my plate. The turkey was just an obstacle–my mom would make me it…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Apples

Recipe | Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Apples

Last week I asked about brussels sprouts on my Facebook page. And you have strong feelings about them! Many of you had a similar experience of hating them when you were kids and loving them as adults. I liked pretty much every vegetable as a child, but brussels sprouts? Those I just would not touch….

Trimmed-Down Cheddar & Chive Duchess Potatoes (made with cauliflower!)

Recipe | Trimmed-Down Cheddar & Chive Duchess Potatoes (made with cauliflower!)

Okay, I’m going to say it so you don’t have to: these are ugly duchess potatoes. I am well-aware of this! Most Duchess potatoes look like ethereal little clouds on a baking sheet, while mine are rather inelegant blobs. But see, these aren’t regular duchess potatoes–they’re healthier duchess potatoes. So you have to compromise on…

Recipe | Brussels Sprout & Grape Galette

There are some things you shouldn’t say to a cook. You know what one of those things is? “Interesting…” That was what my husband said when I told him my idea for this recipe. “A Brussels Sprout & Grape Galette! Maybe with some walnuts too and a balsamic reduction. And Parmesan cheese!” I thought it…

Sweet Potato Stacks with Crispy Sage Leaves

This post is more than just a sweet potato stacks recipe. It’s a lesson in pinning. (See, I’m not just a food blogger! I’m an educator!) When I started using Pinterest, I had a tendency to repin things without clicking through. I have a board devoted to side dishes (yes, I really do!) and when…

Smashed Red Potatoes & Leeks

Recipe | Smashed Red Potatoes & Leeks

When I was growing up, mashed potatoes made a frequent appearance on our menu. Usually it was on Sunday nights–my parents would make a roast and mashed potatoes with lots and lots of sour cream. We’d often have canned corn on the side too and I loved mixing the corn with the potatoes and the…
