Meatless Monday: Huaraches with Cheese, Mushrooms, and Poblanos

November 28, 2011

Depending on your viewpoint, working in downtown Chicago can be described as delicious or dangerous. I’m of course, referring to all the lunch options that abound just outside my door. Back when I lived in Massachusetts, I worked for four years in a tiny town on the North Shore called Wenham.  Our office itself was [...]

Brie & Apple Tartlets

November 14, 2011

Like cheese? Don’t forget to check out my fun giveaway from Il de France going on through 1:59 pm tonight. Lately, my Facebook feed has been decorated with quite a few people posting and reposting images of Nordstrom signs that explain why the store won’t be putting up holiday decorations until after Thanksgiving.  Having had [...]

Meatless Monday: Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Goat Cheese and Chipotle

October 17, 2011

This weekend came with a heavy dose of nostalgia that followed me into the kitchen. It all started when I went to see Matt Nathanson in concert in Chicago on Saturday night.  (If you’re not familiar with him and like indie pop music and talented songwriting I couldn’t recommend him more highly.)  It was particularly [...]

Meatless Monday: Roasted Beet and Ricotta Sandwiches

October 10, 2011

It’s official.  I’ve lost my momentum when it comes to unpacking my apartment.  Despite entering the whole experience with a pretty gloomy mood (as described in my previous post on the situation) I somehow managed to hit a bit of a stride.  The weekend before last was fairly open so I had two solid days of [...]

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 [...]

My Ten Favorite Recipes of 2010

December 31, 2010

It feels surreal that tonight we’ll be saying goodbye to 2010. Time certainly flew by! I know it’s cliche to say so as I find myself feeling like each coming year passes faster and faster, but I’m still amazed by the fact 2011 is almost upon us. Before the year is out I wanted to [...]

Meatless Monday: Grilled Portabellas with Chipotle-Goat Cheese Sauce

December 27, 2010

I’m always on the lookout for anything that could spark a little inspiration in the kitchen. I travel with my trusty moleskin notebook. I even leave it on my bedside when I’m being diligent. And in the times it is not handy, I’ve been known to scribble an idea or two down on a Post-It [...]

Meatless Monday: Honey Mustard Cashew & Tofu Pasta Salad

November 1, 2010

I always strive to bring balance to every aspect of my life whether it’s in thinking about how I approach my career or in how to build flavor in a dish.  Unfortunately, in reality it doesn’t always work out that way.  Lately things have been a bit chaotic in the work department.  A quick turnaround [...]

Pasta with Roasted Yellow Tomato and Goat Cheese Sauce

September 1, 2010

It’s funny how simply by using fresh, seasonal produce, something that might ordinarily seem pedestrian becomes craveable. Such is the case for me for pasta with tomato sauce. Typically, it’s not something I make often. It’s overlooked in favor of whatever is the dish that’s captivating me at the moment be it grilled lamb or [...]
