Vegetarian Sausage and Pepper Pizza

A vegetarian sausage and pepper pizza is probably my favorite pizza, since having it at a local place near me, but I could never get it right myself. Mostly because the sausage was never right. Sausage is one of those things that should be easy to replicate with seasonings, but that’s not always the case. [...]

Sheet Pan Mac and Cheese

Sheet pan mac n cheese means an almost equal ratio of crispy crunchy topping to tender pasta. Is there anything better? I am not a pasta person, but I do love mac n cheese, and have tried it dozens of ways. Baked, creamy, skipping the pre-boil. It’s almost always good, but my favorite part of [...]

One Pot Herbed Garlic Feta Gnocchi

Pasta is not a favorite dish of mine, but I do love gnocchi, especially this one pot gnocchi. There’s something about tender, pillowy bites of potato coated in velvety tomato sauce that are comforting on a cold winter night. I’ve made it a lot of ways, but this way might be my favorite — topped [...]

Summer Vegetable Tart

Blue Mac and Cheese with Crunchy Sourdough Topping

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Oregano Hazelnut Pesto

I use Evernote to keep track of everything, especially recipes. I am constantly clipping recipes to try, recipes for inspiration, or just because the photos look good. Sometimes I make them, sometimes I go back and look at them again and again, and sometimes they get filed away to never been seen again. While recently [...]


Saag Paneer

I’ve been on an Indian food kick lately. After trying a few different Indian restaurants in town, I wondered why I couldn’t just make my own. It turns out that I can. It’s pretty easy, inexpensive, and so good! I like most everything I’ve had, but my favorite is saag paneer. It’s basically just a [...]
