Great Ingredients: No Recipe Required

As we get closer to our move — 11 days and counting! Our one-way airline tickets for Sunday, July 6 are purchased! — it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to deal with keeping us well fed. I love the process of making up new recipes or devouring other peoples’ cookbooks for inspiration, shopping for the perfect ingredients, and spending a few hours playing in the kitchen, but... read more

WF2 Recipe: Chicken Nanking

Confession #1: In the midst of purging our stuff and preparing for the movers and dealing with the disruption caused by a string of people tromping through our house (prospective buyers, inspector [and, sadly, not this kind],  foundation guy, plumber), I have zero desire or time to be creative in the kitchen. We are literally eating grilled chicken and raw vegetables at most meals for the near future. On... read more

Grain-Free Green-Ola

The other day, my friend Jen — who is one of those people with good taste, a quick laugh, and the neat trick of making being cool seem effortless — was raving about this stuff called Greenola. It’s a commercially-produced, grain-free granola with bits of kale included in the salty-sweet nuggets. She let me try a bite, and I agreed: it was delicious! But it was also pretty pricey for a very small... read more

Basic Zucchini Noodles

Go ahead and say it! It’s OK to complain a little among friends. At first, saying “no” to pasta – and replacing it with vegetables! – is no fun. I understand. We all go through it. But here’s the thing: We have choices. Tasty choices. There’s no reason to give up the fun of twirling long, strands of yumminess on a fork. With a little patience, some ingenuity, and the loving support of... read more

WF2 Recipe: Lizard Sauce

Once upon a time, we took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Costa Rica, thinking it would be a big adventure. For a variety of reasons, it was not a dream vacation. (It wasn’t all bad: there are some fun stories here, here, and here.) There were two major bright spots: I loved the lizards that ran rampant over the landscape, and at every meal, a bottle of Salsa Lizano was on the table. Kind of like Costa... read more

WF2 Recipe: Mulligatawny Stew

There is a ridiculously long list of new recipes on my whiteboard that I want to share with you, but that requires re-making them, picking out cute photo props, taking a photo, then writing up the blog post — all of which seems impossibly daunting right now. My thoughts are like this: OMG, WE’RE MOVING TO VERMONT IN, LIKE, 6 WEEKS, AND WE NEED TO PLAN THE MOTHER OF ALL MOVING SALES AND DAMN IT! WHY... read more

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here’s a recipe that can turn a mundane Monday or a tiresome Tuesday into a fiesta! These pork chops are packed with so many festive flavors — and they’re so easy to make — this could quickly become a weeknight favorite at your house.

Tricolore Salad

Spring and summer are potluck season, and a big, brightly-colored salad is like a big bowl of love. Plus, it’s a sneaky, delicious way to get everyone to eat more vegetables. This quick salad showcases the colors of the Italian flag: green basil, white zucchini, and red tomatoes — and it tastes like leisurely, sunny days. Serve it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish, or as part of an antipasto... read more

Tropical Tacos With Jicama Slaw

I can hold two conflicting thoughts with equal conviction, and I have no problem with that whatsoever. For example: I generally like people who are educated and well-groomed, but I have a soft spot for Kid Rock (Sorry!). I like to dress in black, but can’t resist the colors pink and orange together. (like this) I like bananas — but not banana-flavored things — and the texture of pudding makes me... read more

Paleo Bibimbap

Here’s my take on the Korean classic bibimbap. Enjoy! Every culture has it’s own version of a culinary hug in a bowl – a comforting pile of food that showcases local ingredients and is designed to feed the... read more
