Roasted Sweet Potato Baked Eggs

Some recipes are born from a love of making some of my recipes easier. I love to whip up a good quiche or frittata but sometimes I like to keep things simple (really simple). This baked egg dish is about as easy as it gets, once you get quick at dicing. The Sweet Potatoes Don’t...

Kabocha Ricotta Pancakes

During February, I start to get the itch. While it’s still snowing in many parts of the country, the Central Valley in California transitions into spring. And I really shouldn’t even say transition. It’s more you wake up one morning and there are blooms on the trees and flowers everywhere. And so, I start impatiently...

Ginger Sweet Potato Soup with Crispy Farro

Post sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill. See below for more details. I feel like not much needs said beyond winter and soup.

Black Olive Red Lentil Pasta

Post sponsored by Barilla. See below for more details. When it comes to vegetarian pasta dishes, it can feel a bit harder to get protein into the meals. I typically opt for making a side salad loaded with chickpeas and occasionally I’ll make a version of lentil Bolognese. However, sometimes I just want a simple,...

Winter Date-Night Dinner Ideas

In the grand scheme of weeks, my husband and I don’t get out very much. We work, we hang out with our son, we repeat. However, our times after our son goes to bed are ones we cherish. It’s the time we unwind. The time we connect with each other about our day. That time...

Chickpea Casarecce Pasta with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chimichurri

Post sponsored by Barilla. See below for more details. When it comes to pasta in the winter, I tend towards pasta with cream sauces or loaded up on cheese. It’s a hold-over from all those snowy days in the Midwest. However, now I occasionally opt for something I can throw in the car for a...

Chickpea Crepes with Roasted Vegetables and Chipotle Compound Butter

I love recipes like this one. There are three components, all in their own way delicious and solid. Straight-forward roasted vegetables look like the star but I actually think it’s the chickpea crepes and the chipotle compound butter. Compound butter and do a little dance There’s nothing quite like compound butter. Butter is pretty fantastic...

Saving the season: Lemons

There’s nothing quite like having an abundance of citrus. I think it accounts for about 50% of all joy during the winter months. The pucker-inducing flavor, the vibrant color, the bright fragrance: there’s nothing quite like it. And, if you’re like me, you like to have some of these flavors year-round. I use lime/lemons in...

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup with Chimichurri

Chipotle Red Kuri Squash with Chickpeas

Over the past few months, I’ve been sharing off-the-cuff recipes on instagram (which I save in highlights). This has primarily been because at the heart of cooking, I don’t measure anything. Exact recipes aren’t my thing (which may come as a surprise, given I’ve run this site for 10+ years). While I’m more than happy...
