Thai Quinoa, Millet, and Vegetable Salad

April 18, 2012

About four times a year I make the trek home to Minnesota. I have a love-hate relationship with the drive. On one hand is much easier to pack up the dog to drive than it is to fly. There was nothing worse than finding my generally unflappable dog shaking inside his kennel because he’d been [...]

Lightened Fingerling Potato Salad with Caramelized Onions, Bacon, and Blue Cheese

June 14, 2011

I’ve never been one of those girls who sits on the sidelines. Usually when something interests me I leap in exuberantly.  Because of that, I have no idea why I’ve waited to so long to join the Daring Kitchen.  I’d seen some of my favorite bloggers post impressive and creative monthy entries for the Daring [...]

Strawberry Mustard Crusted Tofu with Balsamic Strawberries

May 3, 2011

One of the weird side effects of blogging and avidly reading others’ blogs is that I often find myself with a strong case of produce-induced jealousy.  It usually follows the same storyline.  Another blogger – usually in a climate that is currently much sunnier and warmer than mine – posts a recipe or a photo [...]

Banana Tea Cake & Thoughts on Cooking Without Recipes

March 28, 2011

“How can I learn to cook without recipes?”  It’s a question that I get a lot once friends or colleagues find out that I have a food blog.  It’s clear that the recession has spurred a lot of home cooking and once people become comfortable with their repetoire of recipes they are often eager to [...]

Guiltless Vanilla Bean Ice Cream & Black Raspberries

July 9, 2010

It seems like wherever you grow up there are stereotypes of what people from your state or region are supposed to be and act like.  They are the kind of blanket statements that create the basis for those “You know you’re from Boston if…” jokes and or those quizzes that tell you what percentage Chicagoan or [...]

Caramel Apple Ice Cream & Happy News

October 27, 2009

Not only is fall one of my favorite seasons, Halloween is also a favorite holiday. Growing up October 31 was always a big deal in my family’s house. When I was in elementary school my parents began the tradition of throwing Halloween parties for my sister and me as well as our friends. The highlight [...]

Apple Date Muffins

October 1, 2009

Among the things I have discovered about myself while working in the city is my lack of self control around a bakery case. In the early morning I find myself taunted by oversized-bagels ready to be toasted and schmeared with cream cheese, crispy croissants that promise molten interiors of chocolate or cheese, and dense scones [...]

Plum Topped Baked Oatmeal

September 19, 2009

When I was in college I thrived off being busy.  My days were a whirlwind of classes, extra curricular activities, sorority functions, internships and part-time jobs.  Call me odd but trying to be a wonder college student was my kind of adrenaline rush.  I often did some of my best work late in the night [...]

Mango Berry Granola

May 17, 2008

When I left work today I really needed a pick me up.  I’d found out that one of my favorite mentors had resigned from my company and additionally that I might not be able to go to a prestigious award ceremony because it would conflict with important research for one of my accounts.  On top [...]
