Crab Salad BLT

January 18, 2012

Before Christmas I mentioned my love of holiday traditions, but I realized the other day that I forgot one – new year’s resolutions.  For a long time I never made any.  They seemed like a cliche and I assumed that even if I did make one, my follow through would be poor. Then in 2007 […]

Beef Stroganoff Burgers

December 28, 2011

This was one of those recipes I never intended to post.  I made them for one of my friends over the summer, a casual dinner enjoyed on the back porch with copious amounts of wine and good conversation.  Because of all the socializing, snapping a good photograph of this dish was the last thing on […]

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 […]

Lobster Salad Stuffed Arepas

March 30, 2011

Last month I had a great time participating in the 5 Star Makeover hosted by Natasha of Five Star Foodie Culinary Adventures and Lazaro of Lazaro Cooks! This month’s challenge: to create a dish using sustainable seafood.  It was one I was particularly excited about because sustainability in food production and harvesting is something I’ve […]

Glazed Sweet Potato, Ham and Brie Melt

December 13, 2010

It’s official.  It’s getting cold here in Chicago.  Though my friends, all of whom have lived here MUCH longer than I have, tell me the worst is yet to come.  Of course, I am already shivering.  For someone who has lived in cold climates (Massachusetts and Minnesota) her entire life it in no way makes […]

Open-Faced Harvest Melt

November 24, 2010

Being one for nostalgia and whimsy, I love the winter holidays.  In November and December I wish I could slow the months down, wish I could squeeze out more drops of celebration and festiveness.  But alas I can’t, no more than I can make time tick more slowly in the summer, when I’m soaking up […]

Pomegranate-Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwiches

September 29, 2010

Ever since I attended the Foodbuzz Festival Blogger Festival last year I’ve been dying for the chance to go back. Not only do I always appreciate an opportunity to spend a weekend in one of my favorite cities in the world, but I met so many new blogging friends.  I often say that one of […]

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 […]

Baked Sweet Potato Falafel Wrap

January 13, 2010

I love the Internet because it makes discovering new recipes so much easier.  What’s even more fun, is it sometimes feels like a game of telephone as bloggers make the same recipe in their kitchens and add different spins and adaptations and those recipes become passed on and adapted.  Such is the case with today’s […]
