Chili-Rubbed Fish Tacos with Quick Pickled Radish and Avocado

Chili-Rubbed Fish Tacos with Quick Pickled Radishes and Avocado

Truth….when it comes to tacos (especially fish tacos), I’m a chronic taco overstuffer. Every.single.time. I should know better by now. But I don’t. It’s not likely I ever will. Instead of going lighter with the filling, I’ve just taken to doubling up on tortillas to make a stronger taco. And, when you have tacos that involve […]

Vegan Winter Squash Coconut Curry

Winter Squash Coconut Curry

I’ve had this Winter Squash Coconut Curry sitting on the back burner for way too long. Like, a few months too long. The only  upside of taking so long to share this easy weeknight dinner with you is that I’ve been making it over and over, and tweaking it here and there every time. So […]

Fusilli with Meyer Lemon Cream Sauce

I spent last week in Florida for my first work trip of the year. And, at the beach no less. Though my toes never touched the sand. I tried to be realistic with my expectations. A balance between hoping the Sunshine State would do its thing and show us warm, sunny days, and reminding myself […]

Harissa-Spiced Chickpeas with Poached Eggs

Today is a big day, so I’m starting it the best way I know how. With a killer breakfast (after finishing killer workout) and an extra strong mug of my favorite coffee. And, I’m feeling a little torn right now because I want to jump right in to how awesome this Harissa-Spiced Chickpea + Poached […]

Parsnip and Barley Risotto

Since we’re just two days out from Christmas I considered sticking with something festive with cookies, or sharing something with eggnog (because I’ve had the biggest craving for eggnog French toast), or a fancy, over the top hot chocolate. But, as you may have noticed, the rest of the internet has each and every one of those thing […]

There’s a lot I want to tell you about this pizza. Like, for starters, it’s one of the most amazing pizzas to ever cross my lips. Also, don’t judge a book by its cover. I feel like I need to get this part out there off the bat, because this is not a pretty-looking pizza. […]

Butternut Squash Carbonara

Butternut Squash Carbonara

If you need me, you can find me hiding under a blanket of pappardelle coated with creamy Butternut Squash Carbonara. It’s my solution to not panicking that Christmas is less than three weeks away, and not only have I not started my shopping yet, I haven’t even started thinking about the gifts I need to […]

Cider-Brined Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples

Cider-Brined Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples

After the way the beginning of this week unfolded, I’m doubly happy last weekend included these Cider-Brined Pork Chops. L has been traveling for work, and when he left I’m pretty sure he took my ability to cook with him. My dinners this week have been pathetic and embarrassing. For a point of reference, my least […]

I’m so thrilled you liked it so much and […]

Braised Chicken Thighs with Olives and Lemon

Olives and I haven’t always gotten along. They were definitely an acquired taste. I’m pretty sure it was the saltiness that deterred me all those year. Ironically that’s what I’ve come to love about olives these days. I’m not exactly what triggered my change of heart, or even when it happened. And it started slowly. […]
