Lemon Goat Cheese Ravioli with Pink Peppercorns

Homemade ravioli sounds complicated, but this is actually something you can make on a weeknight without many problems. You don’t need a pasta maker; instead, just pick up a package of wonton wrappers — you won’t be able to tell the difference. This version is filled with creamy goat cheese and lemon, and then served with [...]

Roasted Eggplant with Lemon Buttermilk Sauce

I recently went to Morocco, and one of my favorite things to do was wander around the markets looking at various fruits and veggies, tea, and spices. There was so much that it was hard to decide what was worth taking home with me. In the end, I brought back several different spices, including ras [...]

Beyond Tacos

When I was a kid, taco night was my favorite night of the week. It wasn’t always on a Tuesday, but we at them about once a week, I’d guess, and they were a hit every single time.   Back then, the tacos were simple — crunchy taco shells, beef seasoned with the packet of taco [...]

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

I hate summer. Yes, I do. I hate heat, bugs, cookouts, and anything else related to summer.  Except for one thing. Produce. You’ll never find a pint of berries, a peach, or basket of cherry tomatoes in a grocery store as good as you’ll find from a local farm. I’ve tried.        While [...]

Blue Mac and Cheese with Crunchy Sourdough Topping

I love healthy food, but some days a dinner made of vegetables and quinoa just won’t cut it. On those days, I can look through my recipe collection, and even my favorite recipes just don’t sound good. I have those days every now and then, and no matter how much I love a good vegetable [...]
