Spiral cut vegetables aren’t REALLY a substitute for pasta, but they’re still tasty.
Oh my god, y’all.
This customizable recipe is perfect cold weather food.
I love nice warming ginger foods on cold nights, don’t you?
Maybe you’re one of those people blessed with air conditioning, but I spent all summer sweating it out and not wanting to cook anything. After a while, there were foods I wanted, but the brain-melting temperatures made turning on the oven the last thing I wanted to do. Now, finally, it’s cooled off here and I’m […]
Winter greens, especially kale, appear to be one of the majorly desired ingredients of the moment. Unlike that other ubiquitous recent-recipe staple, quinoa, winter greens are a food I legitimately love, rather than feel like I should. To combine it with one of my other favorite foods, white beans? Now that’s a love meant to […]
I have had a can of pinto beans sitting in my pantry. In true apartment-living style, my pantry is a large cabinet above my microwave, but “pantry” sounds much nicer, though, upon further reflection, I am not sure that a sentence about a can of beans really merits much dressing up. Anyway, I have had […]
Winter is the perfect time of year for cookies. For starters, if you make too much cookie dough, you can freeze it just by throwing it outside (in a sealed container to prevent attracting raccoons and other rabies-laden but surprisingly adorable critters). For seconders, completely disregard that first point and just continue to use the […]
A disclaimer ““ these aren’t muffins so much as just hyper-portable cornbread. Regular cornbread can be trucked around, but when you don’t want to be weighed down, or when you have limited pocket/bag space, these hyper-portable cornbreads are just the thing. I am certain that cornbread muffins that are legitimately muffins are also delicious, but […]
I have a complicated relationship with eggplant. I mean, it’s not that great of a relationship and I definitely would not advertise it on my Facebook page, but eggplant is very much a part of my life. I make it rarely because I do such a terrible job of preparing it. Yet every time I […]
Another week, another new recipe put to the ultimate test, my kitchen. Imagine, if you will, a room lined in stainless steel, its floor an impenetrable tile surface, the imposing appliances and dim light only increase the feeling of being enclosed. This is a fortress of culinary creation from which you will not escape. This […]
This recipe for lentil soup came to me in a bit of recipe-related serendipity.
Maybe it’s the Halloween displays at Target, or maybe it’s the reemergence of “pumpkin” as a ubiquitous and shockingly orange flavor, or maybe it’s that I’m recovering from my first cold/flu of the season, but lately I’ve just been feeling hearty. It might be 90 degrees outside right now, but I am ready to get […]
I like food. I’m also a grad student living on her own for the first time since undergrad who isn’t used to supplying her own meals and knowing what things cost. So I’m trying to devise new meals that are cheap and easy, but still relatively nutritious.
