Meatless Monday: Mexican-Spiced Chickpea Balls with Avocado Cream

May 31, 2010

A few weeks ago I was out with some new acquaintances and the topic of food and diet came up. It turned out that each of us was making efforts to reduce our meat consumption in our own way. One of my new friends confessed he was running out of ideas for meat-free meals. He […]

Mushroom Lover’s Grilled Cheese

May 26, 2010

Slowly over the past few years my approach to buying groceries has changed. Maybe it’s the Type A girl in me, but I always used to go shopping list in hand, dictated by the recipes I had chosen for the week. Now I’m just as likely to wander over the farmers’ market and let the […]

Recipes You Should Make Before it’s Too Hot to Bake: Brioche

May 25, 2010

It seems like without fail there is always a week of unseasonably warm weather in April or May. I remember it fondly from college because it usually hit around study period.

Baked Polenta with Apples, Gruyere, and Bacon

May 20, 2010

It is amazing what a difference time and patience really make. It’s been almost a month since I emotionally admitted I was struggling with my move. Now I feel like I am in an entirely different place; I am recognizing the little steps I have made toward making my new city feel like home, but […]

She Has a Bad Temper

May 13, 2010

The she in the sentence would be me. But I’m not referring to my general demeanor (although I will admit that when pushed on a topic I feel passionate about I can be a bit hotheaded), I’m talking about my chocolate making abilities. While I like to think I have some talents in the kitchen, […]

Gougeres with Honey

May 11, 2010

I think we all have those recipes we intend to make, but never get around to.  They hide in the back of recipe boxes, or in the Internet-age, our bookmark list.  We frequently overlook them in favor of whatever is dazzling us at the moment.  And then if we’re lucky, when the time is finally […]

Parsley Pesto

May 5, 2010

It happens to me all the time and I suspect it happens to you too, because surely I cannot be the only one.  I’m standing in the grocery store with my scribbled list, or these days it’s more likely to be a typed list on my iPhone, staring at an ingredient for a recipe questioning […]

A Meatless Main for Cinco de Mayo

May 3, 2010

It’s not quite Cinco de Mayo yet but I thought it was still appropriate to share a Mexican-inspired recipe for those who might still be searching for something to serve on Wednesday.  And in honor of the Meatless Monday campaign I thought I would share something meat-free.  I love the idea of Meatless Mondays even […]
