Chickpea Vegetable Pasta Soup

Chickpea Vegetable Pasta Soup

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting back into the swing of things with some healthier, veggie filled dinners. Growing up, one of my favorite meals my Mom made was Chickpea Pasta Soup. The soup of my childhood was pretty simple: butter, onion, garlic, […]

Cranberry Chutney

Cranberry Chutney

I don’t know how food bloggers make full holiday meals ahead of time in order to post recipes, and then do it all again for the real thing! Needless to say, I am not making an extra turkey just to post it on this blog. […]

Slightly Modern Salad Nicoise

Slightly Modern Salad Nicoise

Usually I start dinner already having decided whether it will become a blog post. This is a dish I wasn’t planning to post. I was trying to come up with a way to use as many of my CSA vegetables as I could before we […]

Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs with Leek Gravy

Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs with Leek Gravy

I debated a lot about posting this recipe. The thing is, the sauce is unbelievably ugly. However, for how ugly the pictures are, this chicken and sauce were amazing. The chicken was crispy and moist from being seared and then roasted. The leek and lemon […]

Growing up there was a ‘fancy’ Chinese restaurant in town that we would frequent on special occasions. They had big lazy-susans in the center of the table for easy family-style dining, which were very exciting for children. It was there that I fell in love […]

Raw Tomato Sauce and Spaghetti

Will was out of town much of last week so I was back to cooking for one. When I am cooking for just myself I gravitate towards simple and easy dishes, leading to today’s post! Week 2’s CSA box included a large container of beautiful […]

Asian Tacos with Napa Cabbage Slaw

Asian Tacos with Napa Cabbage Slaw

At the risk of sounding like a cliché millennial: I love tacos. When there is a protein, spicy sauce, and cheese involved what is not to love? We did not eat much Mexican or Latin American food in growing up except for the occasional ground […]

Zucchini, Corn, and Jalapeño Pizza

Zucchini, Corn, and Jalapeño Pizza

I love a good vegetable pizza. However, the veggie combinations at pizza shops are often lacking and I am always surprised when it costs $2 per veggie to make my own. So making my own pizza is a cheaper way to make the veggie pizzas […]
