Caramelized Onion and Sausage Pizza with Arugula | TheCornerKitchenBlog.com #pizza

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

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

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 […]

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. […]

Weeknight Garlic and Herb Crispy Roast Chicken Breasts

This weekend I tackled the dreaded closet switch-over. The second I got started, I sort of wished I hadn’t. Until I found my navy & white vest from Stitch Fix earlier in the year. I cannot wait to wear it! Bring on all the fall things! Since I was in full on fall mode, it […]

Pasta with Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce (Vegan)

September 9, 2014
Not much beats a big plate of pasta with Homemade (Vegan) Creamy Tomato Sauce...especially when you can get it on the table in 30 minutes! | TheCornerKitchenBlog.com

  I remember when I discovered that I could substitute applesauce for oil in making muffins. It pretty much felt like I struck gold. I was also a little baffled as to why everyone wasn’t already doing this. I mean, it seemed like a total win-win. Until I took one bite of those muffins. Uh, […]

This simple vegan and gluten free Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry is fresh, delicious and you

Say hello to my new favorite 20-minute dinner – Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry. The alternate title was here’s-everything-in-my-fridge-that-needs-to-get-eaten-before-we-go-away-for-the-long-weekend-stir-fry. Just didn’t have the same ring as the actual title. A little too long, perhaps? Yea, I kinda thought so too. Last week was an awkward week in terms of cooking. After […]
